I'm just working on my wildlife photography over at the wetlands discovery point.
Rule #1. Get the eyes in focus. (I think I got it)
Rule #2. Photography animals doing animal things. (OK, ducks swim. Got that one too)
Call National Geographic. I'm ready for the big time!
I have been trying to find a good angle to take a picture of this mill. It sits right by the freeway and is surrounded by power poles, trees and houses. It is hard to find a good angle. This is a 3 shot HDR taken at 300mm f8 from a long ways away. I cropped this picture to get it to fill the frame. The sky is boring, sorry. I think I need to try and get to this spot early in the morning on a day with white puffy clouds.
I really should do some research and find out what kind of flowers these are, but to tell you the truth, I don't really care. I'm just trying to take a picture. I'm looking for symmetry and great colors. That's about it. Other than that, flowers are just nice to look at and cost a lot of money. I know, because I have bought my way out of the dog house many times. OK, I think this one is a rose. How did I do?
