    I am thankful that there are still photographers who stick to their guns and whose work wins me with simplicity, ideas, emotions and technical brilliance rather than gimmicks and popular effects.

    This is one I got last night walking by the lake, snapped these two ducks just as they took off. Thought it was a cool picture.

    i agree there is a mass amount of boring photos out there, but photoshop is essential to photography these days. Im not talking about completely recreating photos, im talking simple adjustments just like the good ole film days did in the dark room. The difference is that now we have more opportunities and better gear (programs) to do it with.

    Sometimes I'll work the hell out of a photo to get it how I invisioned it, other times its simply one minor adjustment that some people wouldnt even notice.

    Here is a pic I took a couple of days ago on the way to work of a chickenhawk - here in Missouri every 3 - 5 telephone poles you can see them perched on there looking for lunch.

    Lawson R - here's one for you. From this past winter in Morro Bay, CA. This guy was standing on the sandy cliffs at the beach, we were only 15' from him. We shot him from both sides, he let us move around, and we left first! He was content to just model for us!

    Sitting in the shade at this remote natural lake when these four elk come trotting in. They played and splashed til a breeze swirled through.

    Just purchased my 1st DSLR (never even had a film SLR) this year. I just got back into MTB so I hope to take some MTB shots soon. This was taken down the street from me in Huntington Beach (just a 12 minute walk).

    Nothing wrong with older gear as long as its working properly.
    I shoot with an xsi and will continue to until its dead. Then its up to a 7d probably

    Imstarting to do more timelapse stuff so it might be sooner than I wanted

    the box with PLYLER written on it is a weight box that moves on a chain that also counted the distance they pulled
