Jose, please keep'em coming! That's truly stellar work out of your hands.


Couldn't agree more. Your bird photos are truly one of the highlights of this thread. I love them. Both your skill and your love for what you do professionally comes through in these photos. Doubtless you inspire everyone who is drawn to shooting birds.

Certainly inspires me, I have to refill the bird feeder this week.

That last shot of the lapwing looks like the bird knows its modeling for Jose.

Hallelujah! My MACbook is up&running again!
But first it's bedtime.
I still want to thank everyone who commented on my reflection photo's, furthermore I have a backlog viewing, although I tried out viewing on a iPad mini, whether I 'needed' one. I don't, I might need a new laptop first.

Thanks for all your great photo's!

YEA!!! It's awful being out of contact. We're so spoiled these days.

French words for Philippe to decipher, and lines and contrast sliders for Leighton to fiddle with, all from Baltimore

Bert, liked the "after storm" scenario and the bird with the 200/4 - was it a heavy crop?


.


Thx Jose,

It was a bit too heavy a crop for my liking, creates a little too much noise on my D300, I may have to look into a 300 F4.5 or a TC for the 200.

Thanks Jeff!

Samy - I've been really enjoying your Baltimore photos. Having religiously devoured The Wire, I've sadly not had the opportunity to stop in Baltimore proper (though I've driven through a couple of times on the way from NYC to DC and back), but it seems like a great town, crime notwithstanding. There is also a strong Newfoundland/Baltimore connection, but I don't know if people in Maryland learn about it.

Philippe - thanks! And wonderful St-Nicolas photos, the last of the set is my favourite.

Georg - thanks! And I agree, it felt very much like fall's last stand today, before giving way to winter for good.

Mark - wonderful photo of your son, I'd retaliate with a Margot photograph, but she's asleep. Don't worry, I can promise you more will come.

I do have a 2 photo blend (for a quasi-HDR) of one of the old businesses along one of the hip streets near my home. Ossington Av a decade ago was all strip clubs or auto mechanics. Today most of the autobody shops have turned into art galleries or microbreweries, but OSSINGTON TIRE is holding out, for now. 28mm f/2.8 AI-s.

I like it! The arrows! Nice composition!

As usual Curtis has succinctly paralleled my own thoughts about Jose's images.

I've been keeping up with the thread. And I'm certainly enjoying the photos you all have put up. Monty I'm not sure if Rocky is as happy about the new member of the family as you seem to be.



MJO_4048 by MattOphotog, on Flickr

I'm going to find out this week about my surgery. And I've been warned ahead of time that the shots probably aren't going to work. I have a disk at C6 that has my spinal cord half blocked off causing my issues. C5 and C4 just above have issues as well. At least now we know for sure what is causing my pain, numbness and other problems though.


Matt


I wish you all the best with your back problems Matt. Hope all works out for you.

I enjoy your pictures of your son. I really like the expression in his face on this one.

Brave, I'm not sure. I am reminded of a line from a song by Pink Floyd
