    I took these yesterday. It was pretty cloudy and I'm surprised they came out as well as they did...well, the mule one. The bird is some type of giant-freakin-long-legged-water-bird-thing...he was about...oh....400 ft in the sky. Lucky shot nabbed a fuzzy pic so I went with it. artsy, i know..but HEY - it's still a BIRD. :)

    Ok, this one isn't your typical "nature" shot, but there is some Kudzu or Ivy or some sort of green plant in the background! NATURE! YAY!

    Thanks Alonso. I actually had that printed up 16 X 20 just to "test out" my 10MP camera and it came out looking pretty good. The only thing I wasn't ready for was the arfitifcial lighting effect i used on the statue really...and i mean REALLY stands out in a larger size!

    Oh well. I'm glad you liked it. Thanks again.

    #2 would be a keeper if the tip of the nose wasn't cut off.
    I like the tone of #3, but the composition and blowout don't work IMHO.

    thanks saltface. luckily, the little guy lives near me and comes to the fence when i show up. there will be another day for that little mule. :)

    and yes, the lighting effect is off and a bit too much of a good thing.

    i'm learning though...:) thanks
