Congratulations to Herb Houghton for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 11 votes - View Previous Winners


I've been to Machias Seal Island on multiple occasions in the past 5 years for the puffins. My favorite shots are still from my very first trip in August 2008, when I had double barrels aimed at the puffins: a 300 f2.8 on a mark III and a 500 f4 on a 40D for head shots. Here's 2 shots reworked in CS5 2013. I originally posted them in 2008 edited with CS2 and limited pp skills.

Stunning Herb, I'm very jelly ! So, how did the pp go with CS5 compared to CS2 ? What were the major areas of improvement?

Isn't it nice that our 'old' files wait for us to get better Kinda like a good wine, just waiting for the right time to surface again

My old 40D files still continue to catch my eye when I go back in time Herb, great camera in the right hands I think the 40D winds out with the 500 on this pair!

Both great but #1 is really special. How can this bird capture a dozen krill and keep them in its mouth all at once?
Simply amazing!

Very nice images Herb. #1 is a real beauty. A shrimp cocktail for the puffin brood.
