D40, Nikkor 18-135mm lens, F5.6 @ 1/125 sec @80mm, ISO 400.

http://www.sleeplessinkl.com/?p=288

Scaled down version for the web, no other editing involved.

The nest's diameter was about 3 inches at its widest point, so just try to imagine how tiny the bird was.

Previously posted in 'A Picture I Took' forum, but since the rules say 'previously posted images are welcome'....

Everything is a subject. Every subject has a rhythm. To feel it is the raison d'être.
The photograph is a fixed moment of such a raison d'être, which lives on in itself.

Hi Dan,

I'd love to see your pictures, but I don't really want to sign up for a Shutterfly account to do so, especially as I'm not in the USA and much of what Shutterfly has to offer is not relevant to me. I think (from a quick read of the help) that there may be a way of sharing pictures with us, but I can't be sure.

Good luck!
Chris

I posted this once before but something happened to the photo and I can't edit the post any longer so here it is again.
These are jellyfish, although I can't remember what kind now and no, the photo is not upside down, this is the way they swim. This was taken at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

First Photo Post!

I saw this hawk in Mount Pleasant Cemetery recently drinking from a leaking tap. It's the only shot I managed because the hawk was scared off by a passing car.

Nikon 40X
Exposure 1/125
Aperture 5.6
Lens Nikon 55-200 VR -- taken at 200mm
ISO 400
RAW

I'm still figuring out exposure, aperture, shutter speed etc. My 40X was set on auto.

I processed the photo in Photoshop Elements 4. As with the camera, I'm learning how to use the software. I hit "Quick Fix" in the editor to brighten up the photo a bit.

A shot from my first week with my D40x (Jan. 08)....a lonely, cold horse on a neglected little farm near my house...not sure whether the owners are elderly or what, but I felt so sorry for him, I came back later with a few carrots, I have been by many times since, and the horse in no longer there which makes me sad....I love the Winter hue to the scene that cloudy morning, we were expecting (and got) a snow storm that day, and the available light in the scene gives you that feeling..the icy pond and fall leaf floor in the background add some nice contrast and set off the many gray/blue tones in the shot...Auto program mode, F5.6, multi seg. metering, natural light, 1/125 sec., 55mm.

These are fantastic shots Larry...especially the Osprey's, we have them here in CT, (in fact our own species), but they're so secretive and spook so easily I can never get near them to take this type of shot.....excellent stuff! Also, how'd you get the light so perfect on the Humming bird shot? Brilliant shots- Greg

Thanks Greg!

That hummingbird was taken in my own back yard, so through lots of trial and error I know the right time of day and where to be to shoot the hummers. Probably not quite as well as Ansel know Yosemite, but close

That Osprey was shot at a reservoir where I hike quite a lot. I thought I was quite lucky the day I got that one but since then he's on top of that pole with his fish just about every afternoon.
