Your statue image succeeds at being dramatic in diagonal composition. Your statues are also larger than U.S. statues, I believe.
Ha ha!..
i thought everything in the US was larger lol!
Thanks for the spec on the Turkey vulture,

I like this and I don't know why. I don't know what to do with it either.

the workflow on the cows was something like this;

steepen the a curve in LAB to emphasize the red/green

sharpen according to this;

I've made an action out of it. I usually reduce the opacity of the top layer to about 50%

It's not quite fall here yet. But there was some amazing light during my bike ride today.

Found a cow to take pictures of. :-) Gave it the 'old master's treatment'

Dutch weather is NOT co-operating for this month's RTP challenge :-(

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

Well yesterday I was walking on the Beach and saw this brown pelican taking off about 200 yards away. I had my canon Powershot and took a shot having no idea of what I got since it was bright sunlight and all I had was a led screen. But I got that fellow taking off. It probably was shot at 1/1500 of a second.

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

philbach -- Cool !!

Good thing you were close and he was heading away rather than moving to the side (although shutter speed of 1/1500 probably would have caught that also). Best thing you did was being out with a camera where you were ready for whatever interesting event occurred.

Thanks for sharing - we don't see many pelicans in Arizona, although they do show up sometimes.

What's for Lunch

I was walking on a path at noon today and took this snap. I was wondering if the gator was as hungry as I was.

Taken with Canon Power shot.

Phil, so did you eat one of those birds too? :-)
palms1 - Nice 'messing around'
Gary! Those are wonderful! They give such a sense of being all relaxed and happy on the beach

Well I did something I've been meaning to do for weeks. I caught the pink sunrise. This is a blend of four of the captures. I'm most definitely going through a 'pink' phase

- Nancy

[edited to add an edit from Sunday morning, I see a pattern of blending exposures]
