Thanks to you both for the comments. I really appreciate you taking the time to express your thoughts. fcortese, it's nice to think that there might be something 'signature' about my photos...aside from the fact that they each bear one as a watermark, of course.

It's great to see him up close and personal like that. Beautiful bird.

I like the photo so much that I took a quick stab at continuing the window to the left and adding a slight vignette at the top just to see how it would look. I think it takes the photo to a whole other level, but I don't know how averse you are to editing your photos to that extent. If you would like me to share the edit, I'll be happy to do that.

Tokyo City Hall. I happened to be there today and the weather was good for this kind of photo.
The original image is a little more dramatic than this. Photobucket seems to be flattening out the contrast a lot
Maybe I should try Flicker next

I had similar thoughts. The cats look fantastic, but the eye keeps getting drawn up to the top of the pic. Someone with better Photoshop skills than I have might be able to get rid of the window altogether, and maintain the uniform dark background across the whole pic. Just a thought...

Wow. Compared to your usual fare of sheep and meadows, this looks downright industrial!

Then there are a LOT of people in the Pacific NorthWest you wouldn't buy a car from!

Providence hurricane barrier 2


A slightly different composition from the pic from yesterday.

For yesterday's, the arch of the bridge is the subject, with the actual openings of the barrier present but not the focus. The lamp on the left may be a distraction rather than adding anything.

For this one, the emphasis is squarely on the barrier mechanism itself.

I shot both the same day as I was waiting for the light on the power plant pic I posted earlier in the month. When I shot them I wasn't sure which composition would make a stronger image. While all aspects of photography can be challenging, I'm currently trying to focus most on my compositions. I don't trust myself yet, but I'm hoping practice will make perfect

Beautiful Florian! I’m envious…Yosemite is right at top of my bucket list. I’m looking forward to more of these shots.

Thank you Rowbear and Phrasikleia…they really are beautiful creatures and sometimes you get lucky and other times you don’t:




After a lengthy pursuit of this hawk, in bitter cold weather, he perched within lens reach for only a moment. I snapped-off this quick shot and then as I moved to try for an unobstructed view, he took flight once again. At that point, with numb fingers and very cold toes, I retired to Tim’s for one of the best cups of coffee I’ve had in awhile.
