Hi Greg,
Thnx for the kind words. It's much appreciated.

BTW, I'm a bit surprised that you didn't choose any of your images of the Springers doing what they do best. As really impressive as you bug images are (I choose not to call them flies 'cause I tie flies - the fishing kind) I really think your shots of the dogs hunting are just spectacular.
Having said that, the image of the spider is so good it gives me the creepy crawlies.

Hi bob,

Nice shots. I'm glad you posted at least one shot of your grandson playing ball-Baseball, that is. I hope to see you post more next year when the new season starts.

Bob,

Great choices.

The air must have been so still on that landscape. Its as perfect of a reflection as I've ever seen. Great color.

I like the substitute firefighter too. The truck is so traditional.... Absolutely spot clean and polished to a sheen.

My favorite, though, is the last one. You got the ball frozen, which made the concentration and body control even more real. The fact it was your grandson makes it an absolute treasure.

Greg

My tendancy is to post the dog pics to the protected galleries. I'm a bit lazy to upload enough of them to the sharing gallery. I do have a few though.

This one is my favorite. Its my dog Rum retreiving a pheasant.

E-3/35-100



This one would have been better at a half stop less exposure, but I like the eyes.



Another portrait I liked. E-3/50-200



A bit more action. This is a friends dog (the same dog that had the magazine cover shot last year) finishing a retrieve.



Another action shot. A tail feather is removed as the pheasant escapes.
E-3/50-200



Thanks for asking, Zig.

Greg

Greg,
.....the dogs are really special !! Great enjoyment seeing them, your photos of them always radiate their personalities.

Zig,
The boat picture is one of my favorites of yours, though you've shown a lot of photos this year that I like.

Thanks y'all for the compliments to my choices, they do meet the requirement for 'personal satisfaction'. I replaced Jakes photo above when I realized I had uploaded the original when what I wanted was the cropped version.

Default Does 2008 count?

'cause I've been so swamped at work that I've not done much photography this year. But here's my favorite from 2008. Middle of the day - harsh sun, but a pretty neat moment.

Wow-

There are really some great photo posted her. Congratulations to all. I have a handicapped husband so I don't have as much time as I used have for taking photos as I used to have. Care giving keeps me very busy during the daytime.

However after a 1 1/2 months of sitting idle I hauled out the E-620 this week and took this photo of the sunrise on a stormy day.
