The last two are nice. The BG is great... maybe a bit too centered though for my tastes.

How would you place the Chickadee ? These were cropped so there is room for movement but not a lot of room or else the feeder will be in the shot.

Sue there are quite a few good shooters who post on here and there are some who have been published. They are very good at helping with any and all questions and are the ones that inspired me to get a DSLR.

Sue if you would like I could take pics of my deck and what the back ground looks like so you could get a idea what it took to get the shots. The biggest single thing that has improved my shooting is the tripod. The second would be learning how to PP my shots.

that would be very generous of you Sir. I would appreciate that! I have a good tripod, but don't use it for bird photography, as I am not set up with a "blind" of sorts yet.. I have been goofing around with pp with images for a bit,, so that's been entertaining for me.

boy you weren't kidding guys 'n gals about this being a helpful, and fun forum!!

wwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
