    I got a lot of mileage out of this sunflower field shoot. Sold 2 prints, used several for a display in our local art walk, gifted a few to friends and family and had a lot of fun taking and processing these. The first photo got the most attention because of the bee but I much prefer the other two, especially the full field view.

    So, it didn't bother you to be around the bees? I've grown sunflowers and other seed crops that require bees and always have trouble with some people who refuse to work in those fields because of the bees. Those are great photos!

    Thanks! No, the bees didn't bother me at all. I've been stung many times while golfing or gardening and I have a very mild reaction if any. I also don't seem to be allergic to mosquito bites as I never get those! Maybe that's my secret superpower and I am impervious to bugs? Superbugwoman!

    My two for today come from my cell phone (which sometimes beats me & my DSLR) on a trip on the upper Columbia River in late August. Pretty hard to beat the serenity of a beautiful day on the water.

    @Philmar ^^ very unique photos! I really love that first one. It has a sort of Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones quality to it.

    I'm going to include this one only because quite a few people seemed pleased bye it. Sometimes I don't see what others do. A little slow I guess. lol

    And I have to post the other half of the Zombie team since he will push to go out when I don't want to, want to hit just one more spot when I'm about finished, want to stay a few minutes longer. All of this has managed to get us new areas we wouldn't have gone, been there just in time for that momma bird to feed her young and countless other photos we wouldn't have gotten otherwise.

    Thanks for the advice. I tried several crops but couldn't really take to them (I originally posted this with a 4x3 crop but find the original more pleasing now) and as far as dodging and burning discrete parts of the image is concerned, I only have iPhoto to work with at the moment and can't see a tool for doing this. If anyone could point me in the direction of such a tool that works with Macs and is free or quite low cost, I'd be grateful :)

    Today, I'm taking a break from the people and going with three that are Fire/EMS related.

    This is in the lobby of the Maine College of Art. I think these pull boxes are still in use, as a supplement to alarm companies and telephones.

    I had to deliver a map to one of our Fire/EMS stations and took a couple shots while I was there.
