Hi Art
First I am glad to see that someone else stalks the boardwalk at Wakodahatchee carrying Nikon's excellent 200-400 f4 lens. Maybe we will meet at Waco sometime and our lenses can talk to each other about their photographers. :-). I've had mine for years and still marvel at the clarity, sharpness and contrast it produces, I would not trade it for anything. The results speak for themselves. Hope you love yours as much as I do.

This is a very creative and well put together image. It just carries the look and feel of Fine Art. Was this hand held or taken from a tripod with gimbal head?   Posted: 02/01/2021 08:29:03

Thanks Larry, it was hand held. I look forward to hearing the conversation between our lenses.   Posted: 02/03/2021 22:30:51

Art, I love this. I like the flow and pattern. I see movement and in my opinion, a work of fine art. The rhythm is steady and you even left some room on the right for the bird to exit. To me this shows a very professionally thought out and executed image. I think this image would work as a home accent or as a gathering point in a corporate board room. Well done.   Posted: 02/02/2021 09:08:38

Art, This is really super. Wish I could get as good as you. I can't even get any near this lucky in getting activity there when I go. We were there about two weeks ago and the extent of the activity was when Stu fell and wound up in the ER.   Posted: 02/04/2021 07:40:46

Thank you Bev. The action is picking up. The Wood storks are building their nests.   Posted: 02/04/2021 22:08:56

Everything you did here created a absolutely wonderful photo! Capturing one bird feeding along the water with feet dangling in is hard enough but you took it to a whole new level and beyond. The color is outstanding. I hope this is up hanging on at least one of your walls.   Posted: 02/10/2021 13:03:05
