To go with CFRay's Rooftop mallard...

6 posts in this topic

I was sitting out in the garage in my little fishin shop and heard some commotion going on outside. Then I hear the quack quack and knew what was going on. I ran in the house and grabbed the duck call and started chatting with the hen. Hey, it's been a while, what can I say.

Quack?

It was really hard to get a good exposure, one direction I had blue sky background and ended up with a silhoette (sp?) or a properly exposed mallard and a blown out background. The other direction, I had little to no light, so I did what I could and got these two shots. Canon Digital Rebel with a 70-200 F4L.

Tom, not much you can do about the dynamic range of your sensor, so I think its best to pick the best exposure for the subject. Sure you can do a lot in PS but grab shots are just what they are. You are really telling a story here so I wouldn't sweat a perfect exposure when you have little time to set one up.

What Dan said, Tom. A good story well told with pictures.

Why build a blind? I'm thinking a lawn chair, lounger type would be good and a small cooler. Then start calling and wait for the mallards to show up on the roof.

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
