from the back yard, and down by the lake.. was fun!
thanks for looking!!
AARGH!! How are such good animal shots possible!? Congratulations on a brilliant set of photographs. 1,2 and 6 are amazing. What length lense were you using for 6?
These are some stunning images. I only wish that the last one wasn't so dark. My favorite PS tool, shadow/highlights. Sorry but it's just one of my pet peeves besides uneven horizons.
Raymond these are awesome shots. Great Northern Cardinal. I am envious.
thanks Mal! I use the Nikon 70 - 300 for my nature shots
thanks Conk.. I agree.. wish I knew how to use PS..I have PS CS here! need a course
thanks Canoncan, U are my inspiration, your stuff is always amazing. your envy it truly a great compliment., thanks
Nice shooting. The first two stand out for me. The squirrel picture is my favourite.
These are amazing Raymond. Very impressive shots. That first one of the cardinal is awesome . Great work.
I like all of them. The most eye-catching, for me, would be #1 because of the contrast of the colours. Look at the cloud on #8, it could a dramatic scene. I'd try playing with B&W.
I'll just echo the thoughts already posted, they're very good. And I'll go along with wanting the last one to be brighter in the bottom half as well. It looks like a perfect excuse to have a fiddle and learn some new tricks to me. Google is handy when learning new things. Search for "Photoshop tutorials" and add some more text to refine your search. It'd probably be easy to create a duplicate layer, brighten that up and then delete the parts which are too bright with the eraser, allowing the darker layer below to show through where you want it to. That'd be my attempt anyway.
Wow, 8 really is a brilliant picture. Where do you guys find such dramatic places with such perfect skies? I'm moving to UK! ^_^
Great series, I love the geese
Thanks all!! I am in Canada Sonic, but i wish I was in UK many times!
I will work on the b+w when I figure out PS,, just spent the afternoon learning!!
Thanks for the advise Ferny! I will get it one day!
