  1. Never heard of that one. Interesting looking bird.
  2. There were at least 2 types of Swallows zooming around a pond and in this picture you can see why.
  3. Another Spring day. Overcast then sunny then raining, all while windy. Oh well, at least I got out there.
  4. I don't think that's going to work. Did it?
  5. I've never taken a picture of a Mallard before this one but I couldn't pass it up.
  6. Because too many humans are ignorant and single-minded. They're willing to kill one bird to try and save a different one and even though that's been happening for a while, the Spotted Owl population continues to decline.
  7. Seems like an unusual location for one of those.
  8. IMO, unless you're looking to sell pictures or get a lot of high scores or "likes", Elements is more than adequate, plus you don't have to pay some never ending monthly or yearly fee.
  9. That's what the far end of a telephoto lens is for. 🙂
  10. A couple of Hooded Mergansers making waves.
  11. I never knew that there was a site to upload pictures where random people could vote on them. Personally, I take pictures for my own enjoyment and DGAF what others think, and nor do I seek some stranger's approval. To each their own.
  12. While reading emails before work, I heard a noise and looked up to this guy pecking the lower part of my windshield and then he looked up. I was able to get a fair picture through the windshield.
  13. I think this is a Pacific Wren based on the tail, but am not positive at all.
  14. This isn't a very good picture, but I hadn't seen one of these prior to this so I went with it anyway.
  15. IMO, no it doesn't. You're only altering for brightness or maybe contrast. If you made the head redder or greened up the foliage that would be different. As a decidedly non-professional photographer, some of my pictures don't look that great out of the camera so I too adjust the lighting via Elements. Besides, it's not like you're submitting it to some contest. Keep doing what you're doing.
