Thank you for the positive feedback. I have received many unfavorable glances when others realize that the stroller is not inhabited by children. I have others that are interested in hearing the story about it's origin, and seeing some of the images it has allowed me to capture. Others want to take photos for their own possible modifications. Overall it has been well received. One lady that I see often, and is an experienced birder, will tell strangers they are my babies LOL
Well she is right about that!  ;D ;D ;D

The picture 035 is fantastic!

In case are still interested in comments.
The instant I looked at it, the song Kingston Town by UB40, popped into my head...
But now, I'm humming, Kiss The Rain by Billie Myers.

Personally, I never add things to an image. I think it is dishonest.

It is a great image, I really like it. It is full of soul, imo...
Thank you. I thought so too as I shot it. However, I thought it needed a bit more punch.

Maybe composite 2 photos so you can get the stars in the night sky using leaves and moon as masks?
Brilliant! Thanks.

Mount Rainier National Park.   Looking East.  Tatoosh mountain range in near field and Mt. Adams in distance.

This is just a wonderful photo! Well done.
Amazing to see what water can do to solid rock. Love the coloring as well. Thanks for sharing.
I agree. Great photo.

So I shot this picture yesterday. The moon comes up from behind a Jamun tree (Syzygium cumini; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syzygium_cumini) and there is a place where it is visible from my veranda.

I shot it hand held with the 7D2, 100-400L @400, 1/160, f/5.6, ISO 6400. I thought it would come out great but it is just passable. What do you think I need to do to make it better?

Look forward to your critique and suggestions.

Thanks for looking.
