IMO;

I miss the photo's that you used to post on a regular basis.

Don't think that they were'nt appreciated by all those that viewed them.
The QUALITY & subject matter was just FANTASTIC!

I think the BEST PHOTO I EVER SAW was the one at the train station.

Having my morning coffee was a pleasure to review those photos of yours.

I only hope that you keep it up.

Your photo's made me carry my camera more often, hoping to catch that moment, which I just have a problem to compose
Here was my inspiration from a recent visit to Key West;
Your inspiration made me sit & watch a few sunsets & rather to JUST take a picture I waited for that special moment to fill it with a subject matter rather than just some random pic. I took 20/25 photos of this particular Sunset & waiting for just the right moment of that passing sailboat & seagull to make it speak for itself.


Or trying to capture the beautifull colors the flowers had to offer.

Gotfish? a lake called Big Bradford lake good Bass Fishing check out Mich forum for pics. Its in a town called Waters Mich my wife family has a cottage there but not on the lake. Couldnt get the loon shots would of needed a good zoom and there quick in flight. Also theres a Military base there called Camp Grayling you can check out A10 warthogs doing manuevers sometimes F16s to when fishing on the lake in early afternoon.You would have a field day there taking pics.

Sounds like a good time Sonny! I'm supposed to be shooting the Air & Water show from the roof of a building on LSD in a couple weeks. I'll post them (if I get anything!) after the show!

Nikster...
That sunset shot is really something. I'd love to take a stab at playing with it in photoshop. If you're interested, send me as big of a file as you have to [email protected]

I'd be happy to post it back on here when I'm done.

Nik...
I played with these to see if I could bring out a little more detail in the shadows, but your exposure was pretty close to perfect. So, I decided to go a slightly different direction and make them into posters. I'll email you the larger files in a few minutes...

Click on them for larger versions... and I gave you full photo credits!!

THANK YOU,

Tweaking the picture's means so much that I'm considering having YOU blow them up for me. just the one for maybe 11X14?, I'll think about it.

Wifey says GO AHEAD & DO IT.

I'll contact you by e-mail to further discuss my options on Thursday goto go wash some lures tomorrow since the Lake is in such a good mood. 1 foot or less waves. .
