Kirk, congratulations on reaching 10k! I echo everything you said about the forum .... for me it's the place to be on the net
Thanks back at ya for all your support to me and others here.
You have posted an absolutely wonderful set of images for us to feast our eyes on. I think I might just manage to match the quality of #1 (the jury is still out ) but I'm afraid I can't measure up to the others - they are awesome!
Best,
David


Thank you so much for the very kind and encouraging words David, and yes this is the place to be.
You offer very fine work so be very proud of it, and just keep learning... it's amazing to me how much I've learned and improved my processing skills this past year.

Incredible pictures Kirk. Love the chicks. You could use a Yoga mat to avoid ants.

BTW Better not mention the D800 on this forum. Lets keep that secret weapon to ourselves.

A wonderful and inspiring post, Kirk, for both the images, the captions, and the history!

Image-wise, my favorites are 7,20,26,28,37, with 20 one of my all-time favorites on the forum.

History-wise, the post captures what we all love about the forum...a chance to share and reinforce our passion for wildlife, the opportunity to refine and improve a complex skill, and the awareness that the avocation can last for a lifetime, or at least 10,000 posts!

Greg


I have always appreciated your very thoughtful and insightful critiques and comments Greg... always valuable input. Thank you for your contributions to this fine community.
Your very kind and generous words for this post are also greatly appreciated, and your picks are images that I'm especially proud of. Thanks again Greg.

I really enjoyed your walk through time. There is no question that your work has come a long way since that first osprey shot. So many inspiring images here that really say something about your skill and your ability to make art from nature.

Here's to 10,000 more.

Nice to get your 10,000 post, but I really enjoyed the way you shared it. Gave some of us who aren't quite that far along the path a glimpse into the steps you've taken along the way. As well as the more community minded nature of this fourm. Let's see another 10,000.

Humble thanks for the very generous and encouraging words my friend. You are one of the guys I have great respect for, and have always admired your excellent work and willingness to help others get better. It's been great fun to shoot with you on a few occasions, and I'm looking forward to more.

Thanks again for the picks, good words, constructive criticisms that push me, and your friendship.

Kirk...........

For those that don't know you yet have just been given a lesson on just how good you truly are as a photographer and post processor An impeccable set of Eye Candy here my good friend, whew this trip down memory lane is a sheer delight!

Congratulations on entering the 10k zone, that is a lot of effort and a lot of fun over this period of time. You have shots here with a lens shorter than most every use for this type of work yet you are on top of your game and setting the

I don't do florals.

Although... that would be a good use of overcast days.

Karl... very heartfelt thanks for the wonderful words buddy, and for all of your tremendous help over the years. Your tips and nits have really been a valuable education for me and have definitely contributed greatly to the quality of my work especially over the last year. Thank you.

Our message is the same to all who lurk thinking they don't have long enough glass to post pictures "worthy" of this forum... hogwash! Learn the capabilities of your equipment (300 is long enough, some of my favorite images are at 300) and hone your skills and techniques in the field and at the computer... and create beautiful images to share your passion for wildlife (and florals ) photography. Thanks for being such a strong advocate and supporter to those who are sharpening their skills (like me)... there is no doubt in my mind that you have had the biggest impact on the most people in this community.

Thanks again for EVERYTHING my friend, and I do hope we can shoot side-by-side one day.

Congrats Kirk....these images are amazing....since I've been visiting FM for only a couple years I have always seen some of this forums best work come from your posts. Just as Tim mentions I remember all of these latest images from when they were first shared with us because of how remarkable they are. I would be happy if when I reach 10,000 posts that I could put up just a fraction of images that would compare to these

I will now go back and closely view each image and really think to myself why each of these connects so well with

Couple of important things...

1. Thanks so much for your really gracious and very encouraging words Geoff, they are greatly appreciated.
2. I came to see and appreciate very quickly that you are, and will continue to be, a valuable member of this wonderful community. You always give very thoughtful and constructive feedback which is so critical as we challenge and push each other to be better... I wish many more would follow your example.
3. Your work is excellent and continues to improve, I always enjoy your images... seriously.

Thanks again Geoff, it's a pleasure to have you on the forum.

That's a magical pond and equally magical shooting. IF teals and shovellers and the avocet shots are all top drawer. Keep shooting!! Don


It is indeed a magical pond... I'm so fortunate to have a place that attracts so many species in a lovely setting.
Really appreciate the good words Don, and I'll keep shooting for sure.
