Re: Fisher Creek

Would you talk about your vision for this b&w, Martha? I admit to generally being more attracted to b&w that have more tonal range and less tiny detail. It'd be great to talk about your own preferences and interests, if you don't mind. I think this image could show more drama but that may n...

Re: Three Cameras - One Spider

My only fear of letting her stay would be that I would forget and walk into her world, which would probably finish me off....Her pose is so unusual. I've photographed a lot of these big girls but never caught one in this coy position, as if she's about to dance. I did walk into it, which is when I ...

Fisher Creek

First posted this under landscapes but decided this is the more proper place for it so have moved it here. This is one of the two creeks that border my property. This is the smaller one which feeds into the larger one. It is spring fed. Normally, it is crystal clear and cool, but can get quite murky...

Re: Lone Bighorn Sheep

How fortunate you are to have the opportunity to capture these magnificent creatures. I envy you. Both are great shots. The second is my favorite. I'm with the others regarding the saturation, but like Charles says, could be monitored related. Rather than desaturate the whole shot, though, I think I...

Re: Finally dusted off the camera and took some shots.

Nice set! Now that you have dusted of the camera I hope you don't let the dust settle before we see you here again. Might be a long time before another wedding is in the works.

Re: Three Cameras - One Spider

Your hard work paid off. I like how the one leg is extended. I wonder if it felt some vibrations from your movements and was trying to decided whether to attack or flee...I tried out the sx60 but I had been so happy with my 50, I ended up returning the 60....Bridge cameras are a great choice for th...

Re: Three Cameras - One Spider

... all three are more than adequately sharp (and I am a confessed Sharp Freak), cropped or not. .... I recently upgraded to PSE 15 which has unsharp masking that I used along with a sharpening brush in processing these images but do not remember how much on each photo. (Dealing with noise which PS...

Three Cameras - One Spider

This is a spotted orbweaver. Its web is currently residing on the outside of my deck railing. I am never able to decide which camera to use when trying to get closeups of critters, flowers, etc. I have three bridge cameras with macro settings. Since the spider was cold and rather immobile, I decided...
