    Steve, I really like #2 from the first set, and in set 2 I like the last one. These, for me, have an intimate mood and a sense of being in the environment with the animals, plus overall great compositions. Lovely stuff.

    Lovely photos Steve (as usual)

    LR may well have a CA lens profile you can use. Ref post 14 and 15

    Cheers,

    Cheers,
    Why is it showing again, I really haven't been looking? I'm using LR2 and it has a couple of sliders for CA.(added a small amount) At any rate, i won't have to worry about it, when i get the DXO upgrade. I'm really surprised this lens is even showing any CA. Perhaps it's the backlighting.

    Whoa, I missed the last 3 sets had to log in to say thanks. These are great. The fourth set had me laughing too, but you have to feel kind of bad for what they have to go through in the winter just to get a bite to eat.

    Love the running set with the pure white backgrounds. Can't say that I like any better than the others though - nope that's not true. I adore the first shot of sets 2 & 3. All the rest are a very close second. Not a bad one in the lot. Great job, I think these are even better than last years

    Love this photo, it is just so cute!! Can you share your equipment and camera settings with us, I love how you have captured the falling snow off of the trees, I have not mastered that yet. Thank you.

    Thank you wendy!!! Glad you liked the series. It's also nice to know that people think i'm improving in my skills. I kind of feel sometimes, i can't improve my work, unless I buy better equipment. (still using the same equipment i started with, 4 years ago)

    Thank you , kathy. The light was some of the best i've ever seen. The sky was like a huge light box. This is the real reason the shot came out soo good. The settings were just set to freeze the action. I noticed the snow falling from the limbs and knew i needed shutter speed to freeze it . I feel fine using iso 1250 , so iso 320 was perfectly acceptable and a shutter speed of 1/2000 was plenty to freeze the action. (I always use as low an ISO as i can, as long as i have the shutter speed i want. Sometimes i compromise in low light)
