Hi,

I like your pictures. Have always felt a fascination for herons.

Best regards
Erik

Been out practicing with my new 70-200 2.8 w/1.7 teleconverter and have discovered shooting birds to be the best subjects. Of course, when they sit and pose for you, it's an easy shot, but when flying, quite different.

Hi,

Here is another of mine, it's taken at "Great Prismatic Spring" in Yellowstone. I got an excellent PDF from Miles Hecker describing places in Yellowstone. He suggested that you "climb" up a hill side to get some elevation. It was a bit warm and it was a bit of a walk so I took only one lens and no tripod. When I was well on the hill side I found out that my lens was a bit to long. So I shot three images and merged as a panorama.

Thanks for the compliments, folks, and thanks for sharing your work!  Marcia's quite infamous in our local photography group for her cell phone images.  I find it will focus down to about a handspan (4" or so).

Patricia, I can't really tell you much about this particular tree other than that it's one of a few planted in a local park (Beacon Hill Park).  There are large stretches of 'semi' natural areas and other areas that have been planted with exotic flowers, trees, etc.  This one is obviously not native to Vancouver Island.  Here's another image of the same tree (nine images - 3 x 3 exposures at -1/0/+1)

Not a great image. Minus 2 EV and adjusted in LR only. Modern cameras and LR can make a lot!

Best regards
Erik

Chris, that's a great shot, bordering on abstraction.

Chairman Bill's shots, especially the top image are quite lovely in color, tone, setting, light...I'm sure I've left something out but you understand, I'm sure...very, very nice!
