Re: 'T. R. Pugh Memorial Park' (composite)

Thanks for sharing this well managed composite. Using photos that are composed and angled so similarly was a smart move. You actually moved the shadow with her! Did you select it with the original selection or select it separately? I saw a video recently about a special technique for selecting shad...

Re: 'Flamingo City'

Wonderful series of my very favorite bird (I used to beg my parents for a flamingo as a pet when I was a kid). The second one is my favorite, but the are all pretty awesome.

'Flamingo City'

Flamingos are famous for their bright pink feathers, stilt-like legs, and S-shaped neck. ... Flamingos build nests that look like mounds of mud along waterways. At the top of the mound, in a shallow hole, the female lays one egg. The parents take turns sitting on the egg to keep it warm. I don't usu...

Re: Onion Moon ( Just For Fun - Wanta Try It Yourself? )

'Bartender ... I'll Have Another'

I thought I would post based on Minnie's experimentations with motion blur. This is one I took 3 years ago and thought I would do a little experimenting with motion blur. I'm not totally satisfied with it, but more so than some of the others that I have to rework. This has a combination of motion bl...
