[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A view from out my brothers backyard. I was experimenting with my new camera and took some shots through a screen which gave the shot a very soft look. Otherwise didn't touch the photo other than the resize and framing. The Cardinal shown here had many friends that came around first thing in the morning before the heat set in. Beautiful birds!

Hello Donna,
Very nice capture.I liked colors,framing and composition a lot.

Hi Donna,

Nice shot but indeed a bit soft,but a lot of cameras are initially set with softings,you can add sharpness with PP (when resize for web its for me a must).

You got a nice website,I am a seacaptain as well but luckily not a boatnerd yet,I love my work,but my leave even better,a nice program to download (and register to if you want) you can find here www.shipplotter.com this is an AIS program where you can spot ships world wide if they are in reach of a station who shares over the internet,in europe it works perfect I will send an actual view from st lawrence seaway as WS.We are on sea as well actively followed by shipspotters,will give you this link as well www.shipspotters.nl I am captain on mt theodora.

Regards and steady as she goes,
