p.1 #1 · Wind, Rain and the Results from Dauphin Island


Wind, rain and grey skies seemed to be the theme for the last week at the beach.

The rain made some fresh water ponding that gave the birds great joy for bathing.

The wind made for some wonderful blown feather looks when I could hold the camera still

The afternoon setting sun gave some interesting light against the grey skies and grey feathers.

As always your nits , crits, suggestions and comments are truly appreciated.

I hope you enjoy,

Birdie

p.1 #3 · Wind, Rain and the Results from Dauphin Island


Another great set Birdie. I'm lovin' 1, but 2 and 3 are close behind. 4 is super - I really like the comp, but one very minor nit would be to move the tern just a bit further to the right in the frame - it's just a tad tight on the left ~ Ron

And you are making it tough to find nits with posts like you have been putting up lately...

Nice detail, Birdie. I like the idea of using a pano crop (for the tern) to emphasize horizontal motion, but that sense (of being windblown) does not come through as strong for me in the tern image as it does with the sanderling image (which is lovely).

Birdie,
These are fabulous... simply fab!
Put another way... I really like them all.
Special kudos for the first, though. Such a fine closeup of these beautifully deadly hunter/fishers does proper justice to them.

Terrific set, Birdie. #1 and #3 are way beautiful. Wind and harsh weather condition added another interesting factor to your photo. I love it: sharp, detail, color and poses.

The contrasting colors on the bird's face makes #3 my favorite, but I liked them all.
