^^^Very nice! Its hard to see the head. I don't know where my eyes should go because its camouflaged so well. That might not be a bad thing though.

Born just 30 mins ago and looking for teat to suck on.

You seem to travel a lot of really neat places. I've always wished to live in a house hanging right over these small canals. I assume that's in france? Only thing is that the water seems a little milky, but you can't help hyperactive duck bowels... so very neat!



Here's some Canadian pigeons. Everything seems cleaner there. the pigeons in HI are diseased little creeps.
Yea the photo was actually in England where my mother's family live.
And the water is very dark brown haha.

Pigeons are gross everywhere, no idea how those ones look so clean!

I like the contrast though. I am one of those that shoots/processes to make me happy, not others. I wouldn't be a good pro photographer or chef because I like it my way and a lot of time that means over the top.

Don't get me wrong I love the picture, but I went overboard on brightening the whites just a hair and lost some of the tonality.

I would love to be a pro chef... Dang I'm hungry.

I like the photo. I just wish that you were more above the building so that I could see more of the water.

Here is one I took hiking last week:

Now that is a place i would like to visit. As of the photo if the peak in the background was in focus a bit more it would look great.



Heres my Sunset Pic.

Has potential but I think because the sky is uninteresting it needs a closer crop. The colors also need a little more to make them pop. Otherwise, it's a nice shot.

This is from Blackwater Fall, Davis West Virginia. One of my favorite places to visit....

Seems like a longer exposure that makes the water look unreal. I like it!

Here is one I took of a tight-rope walker on a cloudy day:

Chlorophile personally I like the high key effect you have in that shot making it almost orthochromatic. As for the second shots the trees are ok dark. To me the focal point is the ruins and the sky with the sky the main focal point. Both well done.

Nubster, your flowing water is nice I just think you oversaturated the color a bit.

very cool picture! i wouldve lightened it up just a tiny bit and cropped it on from the left a smidgen. i would have also removed whatever is in the top right hand corner. if it was all black there it would be more dynamic. great shot overall!

taken with a nikon D90 using an 18-200. no flash.

Li@m: I like the way that you can see the water. The left side seems to be out of focus.

orchidman: I love how you can see the light on the water drops. Very well done!

Here is a nice church in Brazil. It started raining and I got a water drop on the lens

i like the angle you shot it at and the intensity of the colors!only things that bother me are the water drops (wouldve taken me a long time to figure out if you didnt say what it was!) and also how the photo is tilted, making the top and bottom right of the building merge with the edge of the photo.
