    Those who say it can't be done, should not interrupt those doing it!

    Well, it would appear the mods are asleep....actually the stuffed animals from my website do all my work here so...
    Post only ONE photo per 24 Hours, please. And, it seems to work best to post a 640px size.

    January was a difficult month for me , no ideas, no subjects, no light. Good news is that it can only improve in the months to follow, right?
    Here is what the Atlantic looks like if it gets cold in January. Kris, this is our local Bird sanctuary.

    msmoto, didn't know there were mountains there at the autoshow!

    One of the natural processes that typifies Death Valley is erosion. Yep, with just 2" of average annual precipitation, the Park is an erosion freak's dream. Here a small butte shows off the results:

    @ Yetibuddha...Oh, yes, a very large auditorium. Nice shot above.... you must be out all the time with the great stuff you post.

    @ BlueRidge..... This looks like a place called "The road to nowhere" in North Carolina near Bryson City. nice!

    @ Benji2505....you must be somewhere up north, huh? I have never seen the Atlantic frozen....

    Note: When in Jerusalem, buy the packaged nuts only. The birds that lived in this open air market appeared to eat very well.

    Worth viewing if you are interested in seeing what can be done with far lesser cameras than we have.

    Ah well, try again in the right thread: This is the most difficult shot I've ever taken - the wind was gusting so hard that at one point I thought that I along with all my gear was going to cartwheel backwards. I had my full camera bag hanging on my heavy tripod and had to hold the bag with one leg to stop it blowing right out sideways and pulling the tripod over. By the time I had finished, I couldn't speak because my face was so numb from windchill and I couldn't actually press the shutter button with any certainty. It is proven - we are mad!

    WE'll do this, if look at these pictures, a wide angle should be plenty

    Wow, its been a while for me here. Finally got out the camera and went to Mare Island Navel Ship yard in Vallejo CA. This is (I believe) an old barracks.

    @ ZSChow

    If this is practice, I would suggest not cutting off any body parts in a portrait. Try to include all of him. And, practice is how we make progress... keep up the good work.

    It's been a little dull in Vancouver lately, kind of makes you feel the way this image looks.

    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    Thanks Msmoto for the hint :) I'm relatively new to the portrait side of things (never had the confidence to approach it) and I'm looking to really improve over the next few months. Considering getting a couple of stands, umbrellas and softboxes to work with, too.

    Don't try, don't know, so I keep trying.

    "suggest not cutting off any body parts in a portrait" Agreed, this is what I always thought. BUT then why am I seeing so many tops of heads cut off in headshots? Is't that cutting off a body part? I notice even Peter Hurley does this.

    Hi all,

    Very good stuff!

    Body parts are general cropped somewhere other than at joints - but then there's always exceptions.

    I saw this during computer housekeeping today - an old Kodachrome from 30 years or so that I duped in the last year or so. Likely shoot with an F2 or F3 and a 105mm Micro Nikkor (I still have the lens). Exposure and shutter not recorded nor remembered.

    If you're going to shoot the Ospreys, you have to eat them, and they taste terrible.

    My best,

    Mike
