1)It was completely blown up but the ducks were fine, does it look too artificial, I just added layers to fill the white.

2) I just think it looks all warmed up by the sun, is it any good to you?

3) I love the background on these, just wanted to frame them. Should I remove the frame?

4) We were picking stawberries in the garden and she found some big ones, was running to come and show me. I had my camera with me

4) Coming back home at sunset time, I passed in front of that farm, one of the nicest farm I have seen.

5) Experimenting with my new Vello Extension tubes

6) I just thought he was so cute with his big eyes against the red background

I know it makes no logical sense, but I really like the concept behind the ducks and moon shot! The mama duck and her brood are rendered nicely--a great group position! How did you get 'em to pose like that???? The water-as-sky or sky-as-water metaphor is actually QUITE clever! Kudos to you! I'd like to see the moon moved up and a bit to the right though. I liked the lovely starfish-like plant close-up. I like the running girl's stop-motion and rich green colors, but am having a hard time with her closed eyes...just don't like the eyes not being open. I tbhink the two blue irises are "pulling apart" the frame...I can see a nice shot in there by just cropping off the right hand one, and making a "tall" out of just the left iris. Your color saturation is rich in all of these. The iris shot might be a bit too saturated, but the other frames have deep,rich color and pretty good tonal control. I like the exact,precise tonal control of the shot of the wine glass on the deck railing, but think it needs to be rotated counter-clockwise a teensie bit.

Thanks Derrel I wish I knew how to pose ducks, I would have many much better shots of them! Yes may be the moon a little higher would help

On the girl do you think this one is better?$130702_1319-copy.jpg

Thanks for the blue flower

On the Iris here is the other one I had taken, think it is better?$130624_0528-copy.jpg

Yes I agree with you on the glass of wine, I missed that part.

Thanks Derrel

Yes, I think the second girl running is a bit better. As to posing groups of ducks...I took a class in herding cats back in the 1990's...taught by a famous cat wrangler from Montana. I learned a lot!

He's the guy wrapping the big ball of yarn in this video!!!

That video is quite incredible, hard to imagine herding all these cats, finally may be duck is simple
Thanks Derrel
