    Good stuff man! Love the last one with the water.

    I have a few I'll post when I get home. :)
  4. They look great! Did you touch up the last one with photoshop? Just curious because of the way the water looks.
  5. Those are great!

    I feel inspired to take some shots, but mine will probably suck.

    Probably shot with a slow shutter speed. It will give anything in motion a blurred look. If it was shot in automatic mode the shutter speed would have been much quicker and the running water would have been much less dramatic.

    Cool stuff.

    I waited too long to take good fall shots, the trees are almost bare.

    You called it, I have kinda of a rule with nature stuff, Moving water=Slow shutter speed. And I shoot EVERYTHING on a tripod for nature. Here's three more not necessarily fall shots . All three were shot between 1 and 3 seconds with polarizing filter off a tripod. One shot is just waves hitting rocks. It's a cool technique.[​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG][/IMG] [​IMG][/IMG]

    Burke, those shots are sweet!!!!!!!
  10. WOW! Those are truly great.

    I went out and got myself a decent camera (oly C8080), tripod, polarizer. Got a couple of books. I still haven't any great shots like that. Then again, there aren't that many picturesque opportunities for someone interested in outdoor photography around here. I will have to get out more.

    Great job.
  11. Hey burk, great shots! I love the slow shutter speed shots of the water!

    I was recently out with my new D50 and took a few....

    Eric, the Squirrel shot is cool!!. Tell me the truth were you feeding him? I'll post some Sandhill crane shots later, I ran into a family of Sandhills last spring. First time I had my D70 out.
  13. Hey burk,

    Thanks for the compliment. Those shots were all taken at Lake Scranton, in my home city. There is a paved pathway the entire way around the lake. 3 and half miles total I think. MANY people walk there. The squirrels are so "domesticated" from being fed, that they typically behave like hams for the walkers! I didn't feed them a thing (that day, anyway!). I swear, they totally dig having their pics taken. I can't tell you how many ran up to me, or jumped up on a rock, stump, etc., and "struck a pose" till my shutter went off. At that time, they just walked away. It's hysterical, really!
