Au contraire Phil. The last shot is a great example of a "Morris" shot ~ Ron

Well Ron I had to go and dig a bit for a few

Morris you sure keep and open mind which in turn I think leaves us all a bit more freedom to express ourselves or see more simplistic beauty in things and creatures.....

Here are just a few over the years a little different than the norm for me

It's fun to leave the boundaries!
Take care Morris and keep up 'your style'

I'm not sure that my mind even can comprehend how you see what you see. Maybe it is because MY job requires me to be precise to a fault and blurred images get me in trouble.
But here are a few I thought of that might fit the bill. And your winning images are just that....WINNING!

I'm fond of the first 2 Eric.

I totally understand the block you are describing. I used to be an engineering manager and as I moved up which meant I needed to think differently. My mentor described the problem as “not being able to see the forest through the leaves.” I needed to take a step back to see the whole picture and leave the leaves to others. This is much harder than you would think.

I like the close up of the dear and the GBH over the road is brilliant Steve. The is a super portrait and the hummer a great mix of sharp and blur. Please house train that deer.

Fantastic shots everyone !! Wow.
I have always enjoyed the shots that you post Morris and been inspired to try some new things.

I have a few, not anywhere near the stunning shots by Morris.


The sunset is wonderful Roberta and the last a great silhouette

You captured an amazing moment in the first image Phil. The second a great play of color and the last a super blur

The play of color and white in the 3rd image is super Karl. Cast away makes me stop and think and that’s great! Floral Angel is quite unique and I love the floating effect. The farewell image puts a lot of great elements together and is a great image to make people take notice.

There have been quite a few comments without photos stating that I’ve helped the individual see the world better. I’m thrilled to hear this.

I present “Cardinal Blastoff” for you to ponder:

http://qcpages.qc.cuny.edu/~maltman/122610DSC_2891.jpg

When National Geographic picked this one and for their web site, a friend commented “If I’d taken this photo I’d have deleted it. You were smart enough to see how beautiful it is and submit it.” When I saw this on my camera LCD I was frustrated, when I saw it on my monitor I smiled.

Thank you all and thank you Ron for honoring me with a discussion of my style and work.

I love your choice of image Chad. It took me a long time to accept that mixing buildings with wildlife images creates a unique image and message

This is a super set 40D. The first is more abstract than I tend to present yet I've taken a lot of images like it and love the free expression of movement. The last is a great example of using color one of my favorite things to do.

Wow Dan,

You are a coast away yet these images look like they were taken standing right next to me. Every one of these looks like a that photo I’ve taken yet I know there not mine and I have to say they are all wonderful. The gulls catching the low angle colored light and the last of the snow geese are a delight to view.

I have long enjoyed Morris's style of photography but going through my pics to pick some out for this thread, I realize that I probably deleted most of what might be considered as being in his style as I was striving for focus, clarity, detail and close up pics and then cropping hard to bring these out whilst not seeing the beauty in the colors and the bigger comp and setting.
So here are a few for consideration and I will try and open my mind to being more artistic in my pics from now on.

What a bunch of beautiful shots to make Morris proud. I hope this breaks the ice, so we get more Morris-style shots as regular posts.

Hi Martin,

I've always appreciated your great feedback on my work and you have made many good suggestions. "Roosting pair of Woodpigeons" is a stunning image.
