Re: February 2010 Photo Competition: Discussion

Just a comment about my entry. The cold weather here in SC has moved the Brown Pelicans off the ocean into the local lagoons. This has made approaching them somewhat easier than usual. Notice that this pelican was banded. The other thing about this photo is I think the pelican looked down on me with some disdain. Ha.

Re: February 2010 Photo Competition: Discussion

Last year on the way up the coast of Maine, we stopped at Cape York to shoot this light house.

I set up the camera on the tripod and using the infra red remote, shot about a dozen pictures: different focal lengths, different zooms, different exposures etc.

I noticed tons of seagulls around but it never occurred to me that I would capture a seagull hovering in front of the camera. Not by design, but it was pure accident.

I never saw her when I shot the picture and neither did the people that were with me.

Not a great picture, but just another example of "pure dumb luck".

Frank that's a very nice photo. Now before I vote I want to make sure that Gull wasn't placed. Some of my more mischievous friends tend to do that at times. Just kidding.

Re: February 2010 Photo Competition: Discussion

Philbach, one of our most visible forum members, not wanting to miss voting even still he does not have the ability to go online, sent me this note a couple of days ago:
Hey Frank, I am unable to post my votes on the Feb photo contest and I am getting ready to leave town for a few weeks and I'll be offline. At any rate I'll check the vote thread later today but just in case, here are my votes.

(1) SouthBay Soft Landing-Interesting and sharp
(2) Frank Lopes (Your Entry) Light_House_Bird. A traditional setting with a seagull observing the scene.
(3) CathyH-Pickles. An energetic, interesting and happy Cat
(4) Janet Petty- Turkey Buzzard-Somewhat frightening; nice photo

Philbach, we look forward to your return.

Frank, I'm glad that the problem was lack of online access rather than a personal/family emergency. Although, nowadays, lack of online access could be considered a personal emergency.
