All I did was flip it upside down...here's the original!   ;D ::)   and the upside down shot is the second one.

The pond was so calm and perfect that day that the reflected image was just as sharp as the original.

in the original, you can see some ripples in the water in the upper right part of the image....and you can see those same ripples in the lower left after the flip.

north :D

Ahhhhh that's what threw me the reflection actually looks sharper than the subject!

 :D  yes, I'm not sure why this is true, but you're right!  I've always thought it to be an interesting shot in this way.

Took this picture while in Boston & Fisherman's Wharf with my family - my son is fascinated with seagulls and one of the best memory I have of his toddler years is of him running trying to catch one to take home. This one I'm afraid was so big it might take him home! That's the biggest gull we've ever seen.

Griffon vulture from the Gorge du Verdon (Great Canyon of Verdon) in France. Not very often one get to shoot birds from above, when they are several hundred meters above ground.

This was shot on a family trip, so I only had my 70-200 f2.8L IS II, with the 2xIII extender and it is a bit cropped.

Hi Don.
Wow that's great, a beautiful dreamy picture of perfectly focused sky, there seems to be some dust on your sensor though! ;D ROTFLMAO

Cheers Graham.


Thanks one and all for the inspiration to keep trying, and the target to aim for, but just once could you all stop raising the bar so high! ;D

Cheers Graham.

That's not dust....it's oil. I wanted my camera to have a sensor like the new Nikon so I sprayed some oil on it :)

Took this at Yellowstone two summers ago. Used my 70-200 II to track this raven against the hills of Lamar Valley.

Hi folks.
Serendipidy, great sequence, looks almost as fierce as the eagle fight!
Eric, Islander, Eldar, wildlifeandmore, great shots, djurma, great silhouette.
Madphotography, can you have another try, as I'm sure you have seen your pics didn't post properly..

Cheers Graham.
