p.1 #1 · I'm lost, where is 'Bosque'....(1)


It has been wonderful to see all the Sandy images from Bosque and great to hear that several FM'rs migrated to Bosque also

I recently mentioned that I have never seen more than 'two' Sandhills at one time, well again today in somewhat of a strange morning gloom both our Sandies were strolling along the pathway! I isolated one (half of them ) for a little Beamer shoot.....................so here is my local contribution to the wonderful Bosque images and the Master of Ceremonies 'Monkey' who seems to in charge of entertainment and guidance!

Comments of any type or questions always welcomed
Thanks for stopping by..............

Very cool shot my friend!!!

I do like this one a lot Karl. For me the background makes the shot, I think it's worth calming down the white band. If you want uber nits I'm your man Run some nr on the under tail and work the flash catch light so it's not a donut. And if I'm going to really nitty... copy some grass to cover the path.

Okay, I gave you a rough time, this shot really doesn't deserve it. I was just treating this as if it was mine and you were in my head while I was processing it.

Excellent work Karl I would never dream of riding anyone else on the forum this hard but you my friend are worth it.

Karl, your hair & makeup artist is very good! Like we say about owls, any Sandy shot is a good shot. We see a lot of photos from New Mexico, and some from my other favorite stomping ground in Monte Vista, Colorado, but they are wide-ranging birds. I'm told there is a good spot near Fairbanks, Alaska. Personally I saw my very first ones in Titusville, Florida, at a distance of about 10 feet. I backed off; those beaks look sharp!

Karl, that's a wonderful Sandy. You must have been pretty close to get this one. Rarely have I seen Sandy shots with such detail. What a treat!

I'm glad this ones GPS is broken buddy
I have to echo Mr. Woodman's sentiment Karl, the detail and color is really sublime and your illumination skills are on display here as well A bit o light sure helps the DOF at almost wide open too Think of the air fare to NM you are saving too

Big winner buddy

Very well done Karl. The exposure is spot on and the sandy looks great. I'll leave the "super nits" to Tim, but the reflection in the eye does draw my eyes ~ Ron

Hi Buddy,

What a super photo. Looking at your photo in a very friendly way, I took the liberty to adjust 3 "very little" things to it. 1. The eye seemed to be to silvery, probably due to the flash. 2. The area above the red of the head seemed to drift my eye away from the head. 3. Changed the edging of the head a bit to enhance it a bit more.

I don't write as well as you, but just thought that I would express my very humble thoughts to you.

Larry

MC Lovely capture, Karl. First glance the eye looked a little funky, then I read you performed Lasik
with your Beemer and you wonder why only one or two show themselves at a time Love ya, man.

Superb shot Karl. As Larry pointed out you need to fix the eye.

Lovely shot Karl. I like what Larry did to the eye. A bit more subdued.
