I guess none of these is Adrian Gonzalez or Josh Becket but maybe taken as they were leaving town....but hey they are some very nice birds of Bean Town. All very well done, perfectly exposed and nice to see them side by side.

A good thing? It's a friggin miracle to shed all that dead wood. And to get top prospects in the deal too...Sherrington may be exec of the year even if the Sox finish in last place. Those salaries would have saddled the team for the next 5-7 years and now they can rebuild.
I spent one afternoon at Fenway many many years ago and it was a great experience. I have some great memories at Yankee Stadium including being at David Wells' perfect game. But it is such a hassle to get there and park and so expensive for even decent seats that I watch most games on TV.
I hope the Sox rebuild quickly. There is nothing like a Yankees-Red Sox rivalry.

Very nice set, Dorian.
I like specially the first two for the calm but intense feeling of them.

You have a nice selections of birds that I only seem to find in hard back lighting so I am envious of you nice light. Good low angles on these all.
Overall I see a Cyan cast to the images, I just tinkered with one, removed Cyan, and in Curves slid in the left side for more highlight and brought in the right side a bit for black depth/contrast so see what you think and see on color.

I am terrible at ID on shorebirds so thanks for showing the comparisons and the ID education, now I just need to get them in good light and in close

Take care
Karl




rework on WB and a bit of curves exposure

whew - been moving this week so i have had little time to thank folks for the nice words! its always nice to see and hear that other folks are taking the time to enjoy the birds photo as much as i do. thanks.....

also, on a special note, thanks for the help/suggestions karl. i am still learning a lot about the post-production pipeline so any and all suggestions are welcome. i like the warming effect your manipulations have had on the lesser yellowlegs image!

thanks
