Our school held its annual spring musical this week, and I've been swamped doing edits for two performances and cast photos, so I hadn't seen this thread till today. I won't say I'm surprised by the amount of talent that is displayed because i see that talent on display every day in these forums. I told my wife, though, that photography is truly a humbling experience. Every time I get to thinking I'm pretty good, I see someone on here post something that is TRULY special, and I realize how much more I have to learn.

Last time, I posted a low-key shot from a challenge in the Bi-Weekly Challenge. From the same challenge, this is a high-key portrait.



This photo is far from perfect, but has always been one of my favorites...



One of the basic reasons I got interested in DSLR photography was to be able to shoot sports, and especially soccer. These days, I don't often get to do it, but I still enjoy sneaking off to the local Hispanic men's league



My fourth shot is a case of combining one of the most beautiful birds I have ever shot with an editing technique I learned through on Steve's.



I truly believe that one of the greatest things I have gained from my renewal of an interest in photography is a far greater appreciation of the beauty of the world around me. Once in a while I think I've captured just a bit of it. The "special effects" lighting in this shot is a single ray of sunlight penetrating the rain forest to a ginger flower on a plantation in Oahu.



Keep posting the shots that set a high standard for the rest of us to strive for!

Paul

No need to be so modest, Paul. With shots like these you need take a backseat to no one.

#1 - This is my favorite from my wife's shots - love the composition, color and background:



#2 - Burning Clouds II... Innsbruck is a really nice city!



#3 - Honeybee... the one that I think came out best from the "spring" set!



#4 - Reflection At Lake Piburg... quite a lovely place!



#5 - and finally.... my favorite from my first plane shooting try



BTW, thank you Javier for your kind words about my "lonely tree" shot!

Thank's a lot to all you great photogs for sharing your stunning shots another time in this "5 of the best" thread!!
