Love the notes! I can't wait to see you when we meet in Itlay. Also I can't wait to see your other photos.
I like framing of the photo with the long-reaching branch across the top and the shoreline on the right. The photo seems a little blurry, most likely because you weren't using a tripod and the low light required a longer shutter speed. It is extremely difficult to hand-hold the camera still for more than a fraction of a second. Next time try resting the camera on a stationary object when you don't have a tripod. Can't wait to see the photos you take in Italy!
This is an excellent shot, as always! What lens were you using? You can't have been too close or he wouldn't have let you get the shot—must have been a telephoto. Nice DOF and ivy backdrop.
This is an interesting photo with the forest and cliff in the background. One thing I would change is the shadow and highlights adjustment to bring out the detail in the trees. I have done a workshop and posted it for example.
Excellent depth of field and great detail!
Gorgeous, almost dreamy composition. I like the juxtaposition of the blurred water and the still detail of the stones.
Excellent shot, Bill! I love the depth of field and the focus is spot on.
Bob—at first I thought this was too dark (from the thumbnail) but it is lovely. Well done with the composition.
This is a WOW shot! I love the detail and the clarity of the shot and how well you have captured the bird in action - I cam almost hear the song.
This is something you don't see every day... The wind must have been blowing fairly strong for this to happen.
