Both great photos. Beautiful colours in the 2nd one particularly, and interest / sharp 'cold snap zing' feeling of the first. I think you used great timing for the captures, and well composed. They have a very different feel to each other, and actually complement.

Good work, and as I often say - it's the photographer more than the equipment. Having written that, seems like your Nikon D7000 and your lenses are doing well for you. I have a similar set up with Canon 7D and various lenses. Photography is so fun, isn't it!

Best wishes.

Number 2 works for me. Very simple, but holds your attention. Well done. The 1st one is a little bit to busy for my taste, however the processing is very nice....

I had the good fortune (and pleasure) to meet with Zig last week. He proudly presented several prints of his recent work. Simply said, these 2 images were magnificent. While the moonlight and barn is magical, I have to say the Old Harbor marsh was the better one (for me). Beautiful work done by a master! Oh, that light......

Juts beautiful...!

The first picture is fantastic, love the color, detail and composition... the moon create a great mood in this picture.

Love the PP on the second one.

Inspiring work Zig, thank you for posting.

First off, I have to apologize to all of you for not responding to you thoughtful comments earlier. My wife and I were in the midst of driving down to Florida and as a result, I totally forgot about this post.

Thank you all for your very positive and kind comments. It is much appreciated.


So you want to be a better photographer? Open your eyes and take a look at what is all around you.

#1 does it for me. You could have told me that #2 was taken in the Texas Panhandle grasslands without any challenge from me.
