... THE BREEZE ... p1040605

this is an untouched image except i cropped abit from /4:3 to square, any better ideas or crops you can make and send me?????

can anyone write me abit about how to carefull take out a little noise, i am not familiar with noise much with my sony r1, but i think this tiny panosonic has some spotchyness in the whites...

this image is right out of the camera as are almost all mine, although i did make it sqaure, i dont k now if that is pleasing or not

would love suggestions, help, thank, don

image taken sitting on my butt with hands braced on my knees all of which i learned in sanibel watching lois shoot, everyone head 5,000$ canon lens and D5 s... had fun!

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18
1/640s f/5.6 at 82.8mm iso100 full exif

This image is so beautiful. The bird's feathers are so soft and creamy, almost angelic. I really want to touch it's wings. And the contrast and texture is so mysterious and captivating. I enjoy looking at this image, it's very calming, and amazingly captured... I can almost hear the wind ruffling it's feathers.

This is a very appealing shot, Donald. It highlights everything you might want to see from the egret with the exception
of the feet as noted by joanel. I'm not sure that I would include them in this shot, but I would try and center the body of the
bird in the image, if possible. I am very fond of the crop in the form of a square. It lends to consistency. I've observed some
pbase members that place the eye of their bird shots in the center of the image above other concerns. It can make a for an
interesting and appealing effect in some situations. Your very dark background is a plus in this shot. It adds a feel of mystery.
I've had the good fortune of experiencing this result in an original image, but often choose to lighten the background out of a
personal preference. One must be extremely stealthy when photographing birds to get as close to them as possible while
avoiding disturbing them.

Spuberb image!
Again we see with this picture that the most important thing is not the camera (and the lenses) but the photographer who takes the picture!

This shot is really nice, with an uncommon aspect for this bird . The details are interresting and the background dark enough while the with balance is good enough to not burn this bird .

maybe call it feathers, FEATHERS , says lois... its feathers, not just an egret, start a gallery called, Feathers, and lets mat and dframe this maybe in wood,.. a spectacular shot that should be ready to get out, maybe double mat it, a richer look and a cherry frame.. and email it to me..simple wooden frame
