Very nice picture, made me look at the picture for a couple minutes to understand what the clear object was. Pretty capture of the birds too. :)
What do you think about my photos
Pure beuty ... like the photo angle and approach ... much respect for the lighting ... my best from slovenia, Rok Dolnicar - http://rok-dolnicar.blogspot.com/
Your photo is really beautiful. It's very 'clear' that you worked hard to get this great photo! (** sorry about the pun, but couldn't resist!!)
We lived in Anchorage for 8 years in the 1980's and I remember there
were so many different kinds of birds, though the Raven's are the ones
that stand out. Such intelligent birds. We moved to Sitka and lived
there for 14 years before returning home to Western WA. Ton's of ravens there as well. I once watched a raven take a fish from an eagle in the air - pretty interesting!
You sure love photography to do this great effort.loved the birds in the middle with the spread wings.
I would say this is impressive but I do question if this is a composite (multiple images) vs single capture. Really interesting idea none the less! Great work~
@Эдуард Розломий You have wonderful images!
@Rok Dolnicar Hi Rok- You have a wonderful portfolio! I especially love your street photography- you have a very good eye for it. There is not much opportunity for that type of shooting in Alaska. Tim
@Carol Music Thank you Carol! Both Anchorage and Sitka are wonderful places. Next winter I may try to get the magpies and ravens to land on my glass bottom feeder but I will need to make it more sturdy for the ravens. The ravens will be tough- they're SO cautious! I have gotten a few nice raven images when they visited our feeders on our porch, but it takes a lot of patience. Tim
@Jonathan Deitch Hi Jonathan- This is a single image. NG is strict about their rules and I complied with those rules. I sent the RAW image to NG, which is the normal process before they use an image. I did take several hundred exposures while I refined the feeder, adjusted the placement of the camera and made exposures changes. I concentrated on capturing birds while landing or taking off and this is the most eye catching result. Tim
@Jonathan Deitch Good point !
