Goldfinch and a dog

18 posts in this topic

Only decent shot I got all weekend that had feathers! I had a bunch of Oriole shots I wouldn't show my dog!

I can't get past focusing on the dog long enough to evaluate the processing. I love him/her.

Thanks again! Sarah if my dog knew you were gushing over him, he would be even more a pain in the a.... well then he already is. smile I actually got a few very nice shots of my wife and him together but you would never hear from me again if I posted one! They are my two guinea pigs when I am playing with some new lighting.

Okay I really like the goldfinch image, crisp details, dof covers the bird and the perch, and a pleasing natural bg, well done.

Really like the processing you did of your dog and a beautiful looking dog it is. Like #2 best.

That effect is from making sure the dog was wet and then the processing to enhance that.

    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
