"My Edit. Slight Cop, angle changed 14°, B&W, Adjusted contrast +35, Adjust Green Levels -15, Painterly mask, de-noise maxed out. Gives it a slightly more "painted feel" to me at least."

Back in Action after a Hiatus

Posted on February 18, 2013 at 5:46pm 1 Comment

Due to some security issues on nearly losing my identity and a significant sum of money, I removed nearly every trace of myself from the 'net for nearly two months while I checked my accounts and settled all security breaches.  I am now back and ready to contribute to this amazing site again.  Hopefully no more issues from here on out...

It was my first go at photographing the Pelicans, the boat was just a bonus. I guess it's. More exciting the first time out.

Hi Paul,

If you have a chance some-time soon, I HIGHLY recommend going to L&D 14 this week to photograph pelicans. There were hundreds of them there today, it was an amazing sight! Notice the tug? Yep, it says Muscatine!

Thanks Paul, I thought they might be eagles but someone I know labeled them as hawks in one of their own pictures on fb. Since I was unsure, I went with hawks. I appreciate the correction!!

Hello and welcome back to picture social and 'art of photography' as well. But why did you leave? and for what security reasons?
