Edit: I looked it up, took only a few seconds. That IS a cowbird chick! http://education.stonehill.edu/fieldgui ... owbird.htm If you scroll down you will see a picture of a chick with a male cardinal! Cheeky dang cowbirds!


arggg.. looked some more and I agree. Somewhere there were probably a couple of cardinal chicks that got pushed out of their bedroom. I guess the step-parents develop an attachment after a while...

I honestly do not think you should feel "stuck." What you have is style. A very distinct and distinctive style. Min called it: Piet-dark-drama style. No reason to change it unless you choose to. :)

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

You guys have a deep kindness. With photoshop and with photography I feel like I am just scraping the surface, but it takes a lot of work in the mundane before an empowering break through happens. I love the dark drama, and I wish to take it further - I am shooting for Dark Drama!! LOL
