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.

Those dog pic's are great! I wish I had some of my former hunter's like that, but the one's I got are great. Nothing like a good dog. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
