Thanks for taking the time to look!
Recently purchased some off camera flash accessories.
Wanting to practice outdoors, I found a willing subject and headed out to a field in the local park.
My goal was to keep the ambient light the detail in the sky and properly expose the subject.
Meet Kye, he loves baseball and football! Posing for me was not something he loved but we managed and had some fun.
Thanks for any comments or critiques!

This was shot late afternoon in natural light. The posing is natural, I didn't direct them in anyway so I'm not asking for critique in that area. I'm happy with the way it turned out after editing. Any comments on the strengths and/or weakness would be helpful.

Thanks for taking your time to look.
I'd like some feedback on these two shots.
Which composition and PP is more appealing to you and why?
This is Cedar Falls, Petit Jean State Park, Arkansas.
It's the most photographed waterfall in the state, my first time to capture it.
I currently use a Canon 100-400mm f/4.5 f/5.6 + Canon 1.4ex III so I can shoot 560mm @ f/8.
I was excited to try the Tamron after seeing some of the photos posted here and on Flickr, 600mm @ f/6.3 sounds good compared to my setup.
I was impressed when I pulled the lens from the box. My first...
Spring is in full swing at my place. The hummers have been showing up for a couple weeks now.
Thanks for looking.

The birds in my backyard have now been trained to land in the right spot ;)
Just kidding but it does seem that way sometimes. :D

Did a little different PP on these two shots. Slightly desaturated and my standard color.

I'm trying to tweak my setup (studio) to get some better shots of the same old birds.

3. The Wren would not go to either perch so I got him on the tree.

Been trying to improve my backyard setup for better backgrounds.
Shooting through a window with the 1.4x on 100-400mm seems to take away some sharpness.
Comments and critiques welcomed. :)

Recently traveled to Houston to visit for the holidays. I'm not a big fan of large metro areas, I'm more of a country, woods and dirt road guy.
Anyway, traveled with a couple lenses and camera, no tripod so all my shots are handheld.
Hope you enjoy these!

The northern mockingbird is also the state bird symbol of Florida, Texas, Tennessee and Mississippi.
Shooting birds got a little easier after the leaves were gone from the trees, hope you enjoy these.

During the Thanksgiving holiday I was asked to take some photos for family members. My wife has been after me to get a a nice photo of her mother so we dragged her out against her will ;) to the backyard.
I showed my MIL the shot in camera and her response was "I look old and wrinkled" I assume...
Looking for some constructive critique! Please be harsh if needed, I can take it :)
