Gorgeous, Minnie. Superb use of line and shadow, composition, contrast, tone and texture. When I saw this, I thought "Wish I could do that!" Do me a favor; no more postings like this. You don't want me to give up, do you? Seriously, you have given me something to strive for. Thank you. Matt


Matt, you are too kind. I still have much to learn, but good people to learn it with!

I recognized this shot immediately, but think the light may be different. I really like the total blacks and the beautiful delicacy of the bird. The light is just right to give it what it needs but not enough to overwhelm it. Absolutely beautiful! S-

Thank you so much! This was taken while you were here, and you probably have similar. It is shot across the water, and cropped, but I didn't try to mitigate the contrast much, just raised the whites a bit to bring the bird out some.
