Purple fringing, CA, not the sharpest focus. I shoot alot of product shots, some in a light tent some not...

    C&C on 3 I took today

    I like #2 and #3 best. #1 would be better if you had the sun at a better angle. That way it would have better shadows on the ground (IMO). #2 makes me feel like it is a harsh enviroment and only the strong will survive. #3 is my favorite, it kind of draws me into it. Very well done (IMO)

    Played with b&w today

    I really like #2. I use to spend my summers in a small farm town many, many years ago and #2 brings back lots of memories. The black and white sets well with the old tractor. I fell you captured a moment and isn't that what photography is all about. Well Done.

    Waxwing C&C

    Thanks for the comments everyone. Just wished I had a 400mm when it comes to bird shots, but they are so pricey. Hey Alex, I noticed you have a 70-200 2.8 VR. I bet that is one sweet lens. I shoot deer pictures in the woods and I could really use the extra light that you get with the 2.8...

    Deer 2 C&C

    Thanks Overread. And yes for some reason she pulled her hind leg up and held it there for a few secs. I did get lucky because most my shots have a shutter of 1/250 or faster. I am trying to get some photos of a huge buck I ran into one morning. I just got a glimpse of him and he was gone...

    Trying Simple light. C&C

    This is my first attempt at some simple back lighting from a window. I know it is rather dark, that is the way I wanted it. Manual Mode, ISO 200, Shutter 1/80, Aperture F/4.5, and Matrix metering. The light coming in from the window was the only light in the room.

    I like it but it would be better (IMO) if you had a lower angle or photoshopped out the tree tops to the right but hey I a noob who am I to give advise.

    C&C pictures....

    I like #1 And #3 with #3 being my favorite. If you could reshoot #3 and get your eye in focus I think that would make it that much better. Nice work (IMO)
