Cardinal and a few others

It was too darn cold out, so I shot these through the window. I am being brave and taking it out of the auto mode. I think I am getting some of the settings down a little better. confused

Is there a good PP software that isn't $600 that gives you good control of editing. PP was done with software that came with the camera.

C&C welcome because it only improves my abilities. Thanks

Nice ones, Nymph. Check out Photoshop Elements by searching for it online. You can buy it online with a credit card and download it if you want it, rather than having to go to a store and buy it.

Elements has all you'll need. It's a stripped down version of the full-blown Photoshop, and is very inexpensive. Cheap as it is, you can save even more money by picking up a discounted older version.

Very nice images - you must have clean windows smile

You should also know that Adobe offers some education discounts on their products, including Photoshop Elements, and their definition of and Education End User is quite broad - "Education end users are full or part time students, faculty, staff and employees of government-certified educational institutions." When you're on the Adobe site, go to the Education Store.

I use Elements and as a beginner photographer/amateur it serves my purposes very nicely.

I love your chickadee--he is framed by the branches. How did you get him to cooperate like that? The fluff on the bluejay is cool also. Good job.

    • Probably  Canadian. Appears some zealous border guards kept the rest pf them out.
    • my bird id book says its a spotted towhee,used to be called a rufus sided towhee.  
    • Never claimed they were rocket scientists, and I did say they are terrible at putting garbage in containers. Words are all spelled right, just don't make much sense--must be from over seas.
    • You are right. But there was a whole lot of head scratching from the rest of us.  Here is a tasty sample. Thought I'd put it out here for ya just so you do not think your side is hoarding all the genius.  
    • Yea, highly doubt the calls were for well wishes and almost assuredly  illegal at the time, but doubt anything will be able to be proved. Number and length of calls along with a "no no" will probably be the only thing coming out of the Senate inquiry. Am sure Flynn and if whomever else will be well versed on a non incriminating reply. Hard to take down any high ranking gubmint official, no matter the party. 
    • I can't wait for the hearings.  Lock those filthy pigs up!  Send em all to gitmo, heard they have plenty of room there. So how did all that russian propaganda end up on the dnc server?  Youve got 50 pages of hard evidence for that i bet.
    • Reddit I believe   https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/5i63d1/40_electoral_college_members_demand_briefing_on/db5or6d/?st=iy9h32qk&sh=3f2619dd   There were plenty of criminal things the Clinton team could have been charged with but when the inmates run the asylum the usual rules don't apply.
    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942
