Re: Cypress & Ice

Well, I just plain love it. I can't recall if you ever try to sell anything. You might get some bites if you had this and others you've made up on a stock site. It would make wonderful, restful wall art for offices and waiting rooms...

Re: Image quality comparison, please

Re: Bugs and Flowers, Oldies but Goodies We Hope

Thanks so much for the suggestions so far, folks. Duck, Min, I am very pleased to learn that my system is not extremely different from yours, even though I started it all the way back in 2007 and have not fundamentally changed it: a master folder for the year, then sub folders for each "shoot."

Re: macro lens at bird feeder

I see no evidence of a reflection in this shot. Do you mean on the day lit side or your side, in which case a black drape behind you should take care of it. If you exclude all light from behind you it would have the added benefit that the birds would have a hard time seeing you through the reflectio...

Re: Bugs and Flowers, Oldies but Goodies We Hope

aw Chuck, love that first one, yellows and greens have never looked so good. I had to re-read what you said, my first take was "reorganize thousands of photo flies... " Needless to say, it gave me a Chuckle. Thanks, Piet. Yes, I am starting in on it. I actually have a "system" :rofl: . I have maste...

Re: Magpie

Let me answer your question in this way, Charles.
