holy cow! Thank you Frank and Minnie, your words are uplifting. Today was rough for me, just didn't feel like making use of free time to study. At least I had the energy to practice basic photo editing!

Here is the Marsh Angel - Angel of death for fish and amphibians I am sure - though he looks a little skinny,,

I love the marsh angel too. This is my kind of bird, of course, the elegant white egret, and against a much lovelier backdrop than the ones I know so well. Very beautiful. Frank's delicate edit is a nice addition. Wonderful.

Sometimes we burn out on the study thing and have to DO stuff for a while to refuel. When I got back into the studying last week, I over did it, and now I'm dreaming of color palettes and shapes and shading, and not in a good way. I need to ration things out better.
good and helpful. Will be better when I don't feel so Lazy!

the wind is roaring and the temperature is around 18. I had to lay down and rest the lens on a rock. The wind is blowing across the bay and I am assuming that fish are being forced into the shore - all I know is we went to see the spray and saw the gulls hovering over the shoreline. Those birds must be incredibly hardy, I couldn't stand it and found myself just holding my breath - I'm glad I didn't pass out!

You’ve done a good job of stuffing the weather conditions into the images. I feel the cold, the wind, the biting touch of the winter salt air on my fac, even the power the birds are fighting in order to stay on course. These are storytelling images, with a strong sense of place. And your weather is worse than ours, we are at least 10 degrees warmer!

thanks Min, you convinced me it was worth trying for a more artistic rendition of it hopefully not losing the story.

Absolutely beautiful Piet....I realize this is showcase but I'd like to see those clouds right a touch softer..my eye is drawn to them because of their distinctive(noticeable) edges.

hey thanks Frank, I appreciate that. I tried to draw the eye to the birds and shot myself in the foot a little with that one!
