Re: lunch

or what makes us Wooses (sp?) in the eyes of some. No, seriously, the whole wheel of life thing sucks eggs. Life is precious, young life especially. I don't even want to go fishing. Yeah, Linda, seeing a duckling ask for help and then get taken out is hard. A few years ago I was talking to a hunter ...

Re: lunch

I actually think that first image is fantastic. It may not be grand as an art photo but it's awesome as a photojournalistic image. The story isn't about the bird, it's about survival and what it takes out in the wild. This captures that story exceedingly well with this angle of view. Emphasis goes ...

Re: lunch

thanks Paula - I see the heartbreaking and powerful, but it would have to be all about the victim, the hawk in this case doesn't offer much. Hey, if you have time and feel like it and could take a shot at the texture work, I would be delighted to see what you can come up with. not too long ago, the ...

Re: macro lens at bird feeder

thank you Steve and Dave - It will be a long time before I am a birder, but birds at the birdfeeder are WAY easier than Street!

lunch

not a great shot, was very far away and heavily cropped. I see this Northern Harrier hunting every day. I didn't think that it was eating too good, since it has been below freezing and all. So anyway, today I see it in the distance and try to get some shots, none very good - due to the angle and dis...

Re: The Road

I like this shot a lot. I like the bright hills contrasting with the dark fore ground. I like how the road leads the eye to the ridge line on the hills. Texture in the clouds hurts on the left side (I think anyway). The road looks and feels wet, I think it adds to the composition to remain so. Perha...
