Hello all!

I know I've missed months and months of great posts from all of you. Between trying to start a new business and mending my bum leg, I've only been out shooting a handful of times the last couple of months. So I am here to post a few oldies, a few new shots, and a couple of non-feathered things I thought you'd like to see! Hope you've all been well. As always, C&C is welcome!

1. Let's start with this shot that many many have wished didn't have any barrel distortion. I tried my best to fix it up here, and apologize for the low resolution image. I've already had some dude steal it off Facebook, remove my watermark and post it (I have people working on going after this guy right now). Anyway, it was a rare sight to have this double rainbow appear over the San Francisco Bay Bridge not long ago. I was lucky to be there!






2. This Bullock's Oriole was from a couple days ago!






3. Re-edited this Snail Kite from a couple years back using newer PP techniques.






4. This darn female Western Bluebird would NOT come out of the shade. The original was completely underexposed. I tried to get the most out of it in PP. Not bad for being over-caffineated at 1/200s handheld eh?






5. Nothing exciting about this Western Meadowlark, but its the first of the season for me






6. Shot this Northern Harrier during Tim Kuhn weather. I don't know how you PNW shooters do it






7. Another oldie of a Greenie I've re-processed






8.This was what I actually went to get the day I got that double rainbow. Too bad the rainbow was gone by the time the light allowed for this exposure.

Hey sport, nice re-edits and sweet landscapes

I'll throw some stuff at ya here..........
#1 it works, it's about the rainbow not the barrel distortion
#2 great subject but I am not a fan of the black BG, just not natural to me and makes this one a bit too contrasty for my likes...
#3 looks awesome buddy
#4 the quality of light here is enjoyable, I like the look here, well presented sir!
#5 great clean pose, just lovely!
#6 bloody talons and all, this is a good feel. You are spoiled with too much sun to appreciate what the rest of us go through
#7 just a little 'edgy' for me but can appreciate all you got out of it in color and detail
#8 Winner

Lovely set Conrad. It's nice to revisit some older work sometimes and end up with sometimes a better outcome. These are all very nice

A most excellent set Conrad. Glad to have you back posting. #1 is pretty neat, and I can see why someone would want to steal it. Last one is real nice too. In between are some darned good bird picks.

You continue to raise the bar my friend
Landscape: The rainbow shot is special, but I kind of like the bridge shot in #8.
Feathers: Bullock's Oriole, yeah buddy Western Meadowlark is also a favorite, nice color, sharp and a sweet BG. Being a PNW shooter myself I love #6, well done for a Cali boy The Greenie get my #1 spot, beauty.

Wonderful set, Conrad, and I have to agree with Randy; the bar keeps getting raised!

It's probably my naiveté but I like the contrast. (Plus, I'm so tired of seeing spectacular shots of raptors).
Bottom line...my favorites are the Oriole, the Meadowlark, and the last shot of the bridge.

Well, you haven't changed a bit Conrad. Your pictures are consistently over the top!

I really like the Bullock's Oriole shot.

Best,
