The emergency release on a garage door opener hangs down in the door opening and is red in color. Makes the garage a big trap for hummers. Cover the red portion with black electrical tape to fix the problem.

Greetings. Considering purchasing a monopod. I mostly shoot sports - soccer, surfing, lacrosse, etc. Just wondering if a ball head is necessary. My thought is to just mount to to top of monopod as I move about and would use the monopod basically for support. Your though and advice are appreciated. John

I have used a gimbal head on a monopod for wildlife for several years. Mine weighs a little under 4 lbs and I use it with a nikon d750 and 200-500 lens. My first monopod was not a quality one and the top mount screw sheared off. The strap around my neck saved camera and lens. I got a better monopod (mine is a promaster) and have had no problem since.

Manfrotto 393 Heavy Telephoto Lens Support for Monopod. It has 2 "U" shaped sections inner and outter. For my use mounting the lens on long plate allows balance adjustment for various lenses. i have several plates to allow quick change of lens in use. Online adds show use with inner "U" inverted. I use it with the "U"'s in the upright position providing better control.

i use a pelican 1560 case for storage. and assorted lowpro cases when i go out for a shoot. I hope this protects my cameras by removing them from the case that went thru changes in temperature and humidity.

the 200-500 does well with the 1.4 tc ii as well.

I like the original. You captured a fine scene. Why go any further?

thank you

I like to explore things from multiple view points. I often find overlooked gems behind the initial take.

I like what you have done with the second one. It looks as though you painted the painter.

I like Monet and thought it might fit the scene

For my taste I'd hang all three in a vertical row with the B&W at center and the second at top closer to the ceiling (ten foot high) than the first is to the floor. I like the second one but want to be back a ways relative to the others. I'm curious how others would treat these three fine images?

Thank you.

I like the ideas you have, but do not like this particular photo in black and white. The color versions tell me more about the painter and her? natural subject. We have an event in the area like that where there are quite a few artists out in natural settings painting. Always a great event, and a good place to practice our art form. (Photography )

While the BW produces an old time documentary effect i'am with you on color for this one. Her choice of color for the scene made me very curious about her process.

On a sunday drive (my jeep safari) i ran accross this artist painting a scene of the Withlacoochee gulf preserve. I asked if i could take her picture and she said yes. This seemed to have so many possabilities.

I tried BW and a painterly approach. How would you crop and play with it?

my sister called it the "En plein air artist in natural habitat". had to google it

Compare price and specs with tigerdirect. I have purchased many components thru this source and have had very good luck.
