  1. Any Sony with an "R" in the name is a resolution camera (good for landscape) The fast cameras would be A7III being the cheapest,A9 series is next, then the AI. I think A7III is the best for the price.....but still not cheap.
  2. I will stick with the @GracesWarbler challenge.
  3. I will let @Graceswarbler pick the next challenge. My photo was almost too easy since these Sparrows are in my yard everyday.
  4. Can't find it. I did this a couple years ago and saved it as a TIFF, but since it was a free editor it doesn't have original exit data, the original date is not there. It is on one of my hard drives somewhere .....sorry
  5. My other worldly shot of the moon.......highly processed edit.
  6. My best photo of the year. I like everything about it except the green bush intruding on the left. June 19 2021 Great Horned Owl in the Mojave Desert from about 75ft away.
  7. Somewhere in the Mojave Desert is a city with nobody living there.
  8. Mojave Desert at Yucca Valley Ca. Black Throat-ed Sparrow.
  9. This Sage Sparrow just keeps hanging around. Mojave Desert rural Yucca Valley.
  10. Mine go from the SD card to my computer after every photo session.I no longer leave my photos on the computer for more then 1 month. Then they go on the External hard-drive. These are the ones I use. They have never failed me yet, I have a few of them. https://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Elements-Portable-External/dp/B06W55K9N6/ref=asc_df_B06W55K9N6/?tag=&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309779531175&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5722027875412102334&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9031411&hvtargid=pla-301232220719&ref=&adgrpid=62412137260&th=1
  11. I went against the grain on Thanksgiving.......Had Ham-hock & Beans with Corn Bread.
  12. I have posted a 1 hr video on my new Mojave Desert Waterhole channel on YouTube. There are several visits from more then one Sage Sparrows,which have never been to the Waterhole before. This channel is really for my new waterhole that I am building which is more on the rural side of my property (about 300 ft away from the current location). The plan is to stream 24/7 with good cameras and good audio. Still working to figure out all the WIFI tech involved as I have never done this before. This video is unlisted to the pubic but you should be able see it with this link. Feel free to subscribe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGaRi0qBE2M
  13. It;s now the next day and I set up the video camera again. Just after I set it up, here he comes again (same bird? same spot) This time the camera is at a different angle and shows his back. Does this help with the ID?
  14. He turns his head in the video (see photos) but never shows his back.
  15. As a Hi Desert guy who has never seen either of them here before. In the video he is twitting his tail up and down as he drinks. Don't know if that helps.
  16. These are taken out of a video file. My Sparrow IDs are not good. Maybe a Sagebrush Sparrow?
  17. I can't get any videos to upload on this page. Not sure why I have done it before.
  18. Here is the Sony Imaging App. link. https://imagingedge.sony.net/en-us/ie-desktop.html
  19. I don't know how helpful I can be but since we both shoot on Sony cameras I can give my 2 cents on what I use. I have used the free editor Photoscape X for my photos. All my photos are stored in this program. I just started using Sony Imaging to do my edits but the photos are still stored in Photoscape. When I open Sony Imaging all those photos are listed on the left side and I can open them as I choose. After I edit and save them they are saved in Photoscape with all my other photos. There are probably better ways to do it? this is just how I am currently doing it. I shoot in RAW + JPEG and only edit maybe 10% of the RAW photos, basically just the ones I want to fix the others I don't edit at all. Here is a link to Photoscape http://x.photoscape.org/
  20. Copyright rights deals mostly from someone who is looking to profit from using copyrighted material that they don't own. Using on-line photos for a forum should not be a problem and you would not need the owners permission. Yes there is a lot of gray area in copyright laws that have yet to be work out with on-line usage, but profit is not a motive here.
  21. Don't be intimidated, you don't need to understand the whole program. Just a simple adjustment to the sliders on the ones that you already know. Like contrast ,brightness and so on. Even those little adjustments can make a big difference. You can learn the rest as you go along. I actually like doing the edits. It's all part photography nowadays.
  22. Is it time to move on from this challenge?.......it's been over a month old
