Hi Kathleen, I am glad you found this site and I am proud to have helped. I think you will be like a fish in water here. I gound I didn't have the necessary knowledge of the objects I was photographing, so I continue to dedicate myself to TE and TL. But there are lovely images here, such as this one. Fantastic natural colors and very soft, you certainly didn't oversharpen as a lot of us do.
Yes, that is disgusting. I have removed hundreds of those when we had our dog. And I still don't like walking in the forest in shorts in the summer for fear of these, since they are also quite fond of humans. A good trick to put a measuring tape next to it. But why category Spiders?
I must say this is practically identical to the one I posted on TE. I never thought of using TN for this kind of shots. But why notit is a good idea. I will remember that.There seems to be a funny shining edge at the top of the cliff where it meets the sky. Maybe it came from sharpening? Nice weather for Iceland though.
Yes, one often sees these dead trees as hosts for other vegetation and parasites. A very good idea to show this on Halloween as you say. I also like the landscape in the back.
I must say you have some interesting zoo pictures. Nice to see a turtle below water, the way everything hangs below the shell. It's also almost an experimental photo with the reflections of people and that yellow light (sunlight?) in the background. Nice.
My goodness, all that detailed information. You must be studying to become a a biologist or something. I find the shot lacks a little in sharpness and maybe the very long "panorama" format hadn't been necessary.
Well, Robert, the picture is interesting enough to lure any viewer on board (because of the peculiar shape), but the note really does it. Is this what they extract the chemical in Antabus from? In Denmark it is used a lot in treating alcoholics who want to stop the hard way. I really feel I have learned something today. Thank you for that.
This must surely have been a difficult shot to get. And the low angle is very good, a few birds close to show detail and then a view that most of us never get - birds as far as the eye reaches.
Just one thing: Is the horizon slightly tilted or is it my imagination?
Wow, that is all very interesting: Red tide and poisonous water. I am glad I checked this and will be careful in future when the water turns red. Actually you have two great photos in one. The bird also looks superb seen from above.
Good note to a good shot. I think it was the personal touch (your finger) that actually got me interested in something I am normally not that interested in. So good idea also.
