Re: Minne's NEW 2019 52

for these birds I think the lighting is too different, the trees are mostly silhouette, get some silhouette birds and try blend if.. All I'd have to do is render them as shot instead of raising the shadows. I'll try it. They were in the same light, but I doggedly tried to get some of their whitenes...

Yes I think your blending of the birds needs more attention.....but I like the overall feel of the image and find no issue with composition..nice vision.
I agree. One hazard is that the bird picture isn't much good, had to raise ISO too much. "blend if"?

Re: Minne's NEW 2019 52

Theme of Bare Branches - I will probably have more than one since bare branches is all I have to take pictures of right now. This one I'm not happy with, it's a combination of a straight up shot and a straight down shot (reflection) with local pelicans sailing by overhead, from another shot, all tak...

Re: bird in hand series

During the summer we got pretty close to that. I could strech out on a chair and put a plate with seed on it on my lap or chest.. I can see that it is possible. I am hopeless taking pictures with a phone/tablet, but my camera has wireless and I can control it with an app. And using live-view (or wh...

Re: bird in hand series

Fun stuff. Hi Ernst, the idea and doing the processing is fun... but taking pictures of my hand is a Pain! Stretching one hand in front while the other has to hold the camera and push the shutter and I have to use the viewfinder to see/compose the shot. I am thinking I need to be less Lazy and use ...

Re: Meet Zeke

LOL - that is too funny, I am not familiar with Wiemies - but am very familiar with labs. I would say - Labs are crazy things!!!! And they love food - so don't let him get too fat, and food is likely your best training tool, besides the natural affection and desire to please you that he will have. ...

Re: Meet Zeke

Hard to tell who's more reluctant to be there in that slop......nicely done He is terrified of the leash, for whatever reason.Maybe someone tied him up and left him alone for long periods, not sure. But he is a better car rider than Toby was. Toby rode for 13 years and never got used to it. He alwa...

Re: Meet Zeke

Minnie, this is Wonderful -- Zeke reminds me of Emmy who we lost a few years back. I am SO HAPPY - Zeke will have a wonderful life and you guys will have a wonderful friendship with him. Just spend a lot of time with him, he'll settle down. I am hoping he has more of the lab disposition. Wiemies ar...
