Re: St3v3M's 30 Day: Rule Of Thirds

A foot? How did you get that close without spooking it? Matt I should have said more. The hawk was hit by a car and was rehabilitating at a local Nature Center. It seemed used to people but not a lens pressed against the fence and was pretty tame but only took so much of me. I have another in the w...

Re: What's the rush?

An ox cart in a West Bengal village. I'm off out to India again tomorrow, to say I'm excited would be an understatement. First a few days in Kolkata then out to the tribal villages in the forests with a children's health team._DSC1160-b.jpg Safe trip. I love the right antler on the cow on the right...

Re: St3v3M's 30 Day: Rule Of Thirds

How close were you? Live? Fascinating stuff you are finding. And showing. Chuck"s Outside the Frame discussion comes to mind here; is this guy looking at me, looking at smaller prey, waiting for Godot. Not a casual look; intense, focused, poised to pounce. Stay awake, stay away. Cool. Matt I was ab...

Re: salty ice

sunset ice on the Chesapeake Bay - it's been cold, but it has also been warm for a couple of days, I did not expect the ice from our last cold snap to last this long. si1.jpg si2.jpg Lovely stuff, Piet. We used to live in NoVa, Round Hill, tucked just under the chin of WV, about a mile east of the ...

(Anti) Rule Of Thirds: Day 12 - Dust Spots
Well that's not good. I locked the mirror up last night and used a blower to try to remove the spots. Did I add more?

Re: Practice Session with Heddie

Heddie came to visit the studio for a practice session. The 2nd portrait is for Steve, "Not your rule of thirds" portrait. Ernst, Thank you. More beauty. Like living on chocolate. A question: as I look at #1 over and over, I am drawn to the right forehead and am puzzled by what looks like a bump. I...

Re: Let the Games Begin! 2018 Dam Bird Jamboree

it is too bad the one was crossing the other right when the shot happened, I love the colors and texture of water and stage. That is a dramatic stage against the rushing waters. I love their quirky poses and faces - they are full of character. All lined up and spaced apart. Actually, I chose this o...

Re: Minnie's 52

On my second week of the Spinner, I got negative space. Well, that one's pretty easy for me, if I can find a bird at the dam. Today I left home in hopes that a break in the rain would hold up but it was not to be, it rained cats and dogs, and I of course forgot my lens hood, so I ended up having to...
