Does this have any merit as BIF? I do not shoot much of BIF. Too lazy to and not enough patience learn!
Thanks for feedback and viewing.
This shot made me smile the minute I looked at it! I can almost feel the bird’s joy.
Thanks! Glad you like it.
I chased all over town trying to catch a sunset view and found this one in my backyard. Canon t4i, sigma 18-250 lens @31mm, 1/20, f8.0, iso 400. Not perfectly focused but hurried.
Arrived home from the cottage today to find an envelope full of milkweed seeds waiting. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to see what happens!
Great pictures. Love the raccoon...
Thanks, crafterwantabe! We loved the little raccoon, too.
My..you have some wildlife round there..nice set.
Thanks, Doddy. We certainly have an abundance! Makes practising more fun. 😊
Great shots.. I have family of red breasted woodpeckers living in a tree in my backyard. And (this is Clearwater Fl.) Ospreys everywhere. It's really great when you have wildlife close by to photo. They are a lot more fun to photo than people.. but people pay better.. lol
Thanks, dcampbell! You are so right! I’m a newbie and am enjoying learning the camera. I try to shoot every day. Just had most of my family here for a couple of weeks and when reviewing the pictures I have way more of the raccoon than the grandkids! 😂
Great neiborhood and pictures.
Thanks, jstoogy! We feel very fortunate!
A few shots from my backyard
at the corner of the street. I wonder if its connected to George Formby
Taken on Steep Hill Lincoln
Ha! My first thought was Peter Noon and Herman’s Hermits. Had to look up George Formby. Great shot!
Here is my take on this photo. It is a valuable l... (
Thanks for the lessons, abc1234! I have 3 lenses, 18-55 and 75-300 kit lenses and a 50 mm. I have so far found that the 75-300 is my favourite of the three and the one most often used. I have changed to RAW following chg_canon’s advice. I’ve followed your settings suggestions, boosted the ISO, and changed to spot metering. I was already using spot focus but my excitement got the better of me and I guess I focused more on the watermelon than on her eye. Currently my camera is outside, on the tripod, settings adjusted, watermelon freshened and just waiting for my lady to make an appearance.
Your butterfly shot is amazing!!
Thanks for taking the time to advise.
Great image!! My only comment would be that what ever the butterfly has "it's claws" into seems to be sharper than the butterfly's eyes.
By the way - the claws are into a piece of watermelon sitting on top of the bird feeder.
I'll address your #2 concern first. Simply create... (
Thanks, jeep_daddy! I made exactly the mistake you mentioned - did not really organize properly. Also as a newbie most of the photos are just practice. However, I will take other people’s advice and keep them just in case. The edits you have described are pretty similar to what I have been playing with.
Thanks for your help!
