Excellent pp work Arlo, which superbly augments the excellent images. Very well done. Merganser is my fave, despite the bobber and the bright highlights on top right.

Talented in vision and presentation you are.

I am seeing things that the 'artist' has added in mood and color, though they all are seeming to work in harmony with nature.
Arlo, this is a magnificent set, most enjoyable to view.


Impressive imagery Arlo

Beautiful colors & subject isolation. I'm jealous! Incidentally, do you use a 400mm or 600mm? I'm willing to bet that you use a 400 w/ a teleconverter from the nice bokeh I see...

Thanks Doug and NikonGuy.

For the record I use a Canon 1D MKIV and a Canon 500mm f4L IS Lens which I bought here on FM. I have been using this setup for 2 years almost and it is superb in many ways. However, I am selling the 1D and 500 here on FM so that I can upgrade to the 1DX and the new 500 v.III. I hate to part with these as they have been faithfully by my side for so long and I do love the results I get with this combo.

Anyone looking for a complete setup check out my FS post here:

[Not sure if there is a rule about putting a link in here but if so please let me know so I can remove it.]

There are instances where I will use my 7D and my 70 - 200 2.8 like the Northern Blue Parula photograph on page 1. If I can get close enough to the subject.

I do a lot of landscape photography as well here in Maine. Maybe I should post a few of those on FM too.

Ok, Last shot for this series! Captured this Barred Owl hunting in a snow field in Phippsburg Maine.

Incredible set Arlo, there are too many to comment on them all. Just a couple of thoughts, I would remove the bobber and the GBH with the spread wings is truly a stunner. Great stuff!
