Good. However, not too big of a fan of the branches in front of the subject. Its a little distracting.

Here is a self portrait. Can't think of a good name. Perhaps good looking or some self edifying name.

Diggin' the B&W and grittiness of the shot. B&W is fast becoming my favorite "medium" these days.

Here's a quick grab I made while walking around the yard, not B&W but I personally like the soft feel...

I like the simpleness of the shot. Very good focal range. Sharp, yet soft. Good job.

Who wears the hat and headphones better? Me or my dog, Ginger? I tried to make it really warm while keeping the clouds in the back intimidating.

Here's my question, what size aquarium did you need to fit those cows in there? Just kidding friend. I've been following this forum for a while and just thought I'd jump at an opportunity to say "hi."

HDR or just processes to be dark and saturated? Either way, I love the way it came out. I have always been a fan of the slightly over the top saturated shots even if they are "out of style". Subject is very cool too. Great job getting your pooch to sit for the shot.

Lovely photographs! I liked especially the fourth one from the top. The panorama one.

The details are amazing but the shadow on the mother hen are a bit distracting to my eyes. But yeah, as you said, lil editing will take that out. Cool

Spring is here and my so is my f/1.4 ultrasonic
I'm loving it. This photo was taken at around 8 in the evening in very low light. But 1.4 made it possible. Now when I sometimes switch to 18-55, It feels so weird. LOL.

Great details, but I would vignette every corner to draw your eye to the center a bit quicker

I think its almost naturally has a vignette because the flower fits into the frame perfectly.

Well done.

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought you were Nubster. Didn't mean to have an argumentativeness attitude about it. Apologies.
