p.1 #1 · California Dreamin'(17pix)


No excuses! I have no good reason as to why these never got posted last year. But with the cold of winter still in the air here in the Northeast it felt good to go back to these and process a few California hummers and remember what warm air and sunny skies looked and felt like. I knew if I didn't post them all they might never make it. I do know some of the reds look a bit hot/bright and in one or two I tried to tone them down so I hope they work ok. But no extra vibrance was added to any of the images.
Eric

A very nice set of hummers Eric. I like 2 & 8 best (and 2 slightly more than 8). The twister action in the last two is neat.

Now there you go gettin me all fired up for Hummer time this season

Glad you let these out of the box to breath buddy, some fine portraits and like the action shots too
Favorites I got a few
#3 for light and great pose!
#4 for killer detail (maybe shave a bit of contrast on this one if it were mine )
#11 more smokin detail
#17 super pose and nice sharp head and eye on the prize

Let's hope for a fantastic migration this year

I know the reason... they're not big beautiful spotted cats or eles.

Well I'm glad you finally managed to get these beauties on the forum Eric... man, you found a beautiful spot.
3, 8, 10, 11, and 15 are the standouts for me.

Wow!
What an amazing set of stellar images, Eric!
I'll go so far as to say that The Peanut Gallery thinks these pictures are swell (the ultimate compliment).

These are terrific, Eric, but there's something missing...(Panthera pardus)!

Great set of Annas hummingbirds, Eric! #5-6 have amazing backgrounds, but I think #12 is my favorite. Terrific detail throughout.

Fabulous images, Eric.
If cornered I'd pick #2 & 8 as top favorites.

These are all terrific! For me, 10 and 12 stand out, and I can not fully explain why (sharpness is part of it). FYI, looks like 13 is a repeat of the first image.

Pssst, looks like you have been applying some well learned PP skills on this set Eric. Nicely done, several really nice shots buddy!

You do good on 'tiny' targets
