    Assorted (sorry pic intensive)

    Please forgive the lack of participation of late - been rather busy and time challenged.

    Some shots from recent outings.

    Have nothing to ask, but would welcome any C&C that you may wish to give.

    Thanks for viewing.

    An excellent series of photos, Bobo!
    In photo 11, why the gulls move away from each other? The gulls were doing a show for you?
    In photo 14, the raccoon is so cute ...

    Thanks John, Alfred, Antonio.

    About the gulls - there were hundreds of them so it was just a matter of getting focus on one and then follow it around. I did not want the sky full of them so waited while tracking until there were only a few in the frame. I had no idea what the shot looked like until I got it on the computer.

    Racoons - they do look pretty cute but around here they are considered pests. It was soaking in the sunshine safely up in the tree. He might have an injured paw as I saw him licking it and some of the shots showed the fur to have a reddish stain.

    Thanks Paul.

    Unfortunately I have to make do with what we have with easier access. Their commonality makes them somewhat uninteresting so the aim is to show them off better then we would with say eagles, owls, other raptor, etc.

    Very nice shots Bobo. I especially like #3 (Mute Swan). It has a very "dreamy" feeling. And having it centered in the frame works very well. I used paper to "crop" the bottom. Taking a bit off of the bottom creates an interesting feel. However, it is extremely nice as is.

    Thanks Bedanta, Nat, Orlando - appreciate the votes.

    Thanks Chuck - could you post your version of #3?

    Thanks Andre - lol, ME? You are now pulling my leg. There are far better and more accomplished guys here and some fast upcoming ones as well. I am in the "neither here or there" bunch.

    #3 and #11 are my favorites. I think #3 needs the color, so #3b doesn't work as well for me. In #11, I wonder if the sun needs a bit more space around it. Do you have a version that allows that?

    #s 3, 8, and 11 are wonderful. The sense of downhill to the left is compelling in 8, the light exciting, the freeze spectacular. I’m new here. Is there a way to see the data for these – especially interested in #8. Much prefer 3 with color –to me, the inclusion of color in this case seems to add subtlety and magic.
