It got a bit windy so I decided to play with the trees. This is shot out the window on a tripod at 1 second, F5.6. I cropped it a little and changed the color by using Picasa's neutral color picker.

NO LONGER AN ENTRY !!!!!!! I went out this afternoon, hoping to get some panning motion, but I couldn't get any of the geese to cooperate, but I liked the way this landing shot came out. It'll be my submission until I find something better. REPLACED WITH CAROUSEL SHOT LATER IN THREAD.

Lyrics, I like the glowing colors of the sky against the swaying trees. Looks like you had just the right amount of exposure without it turning blurry.

Trojan, great action shot. I love the angle, the head really pops with the long neck. Very in focus

Glenn - I really like your picture. I've tried similar types of shots off and on and never manage anything this nice. All mine either look just soft or else all a muddle. You've managed to capture the feel of the wind very nicely.

Paul - I do love your goose, the reflection is very, very nice.

Some brilliant shots here already including some very creative thought processing !

LOL @ Daz's 'girl' comment.

Superb goose shot - that reflection and taken head on are just ace.

This Snowy Egret just looked fast as he was going by. Fluid motion with all feathers in place. This is my first try at the monthly contest. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Thanks for the feedback my notebook is rather bright

The egret shot is very good, lots of feather detail. However, it looks a little dark on my monitor - you might try lightening the bird a bit, I think it would help what's a really sharp picture, better than almost all of my egret pictures (they are very hard to photograph right and you've done a good job with this one).

Pipevine Swallowtails have returned/emerged here in East Tennessee. They are so hard to photograph while feeding/nectaring, because of their habit of wing-fluttering all the time they are at each flower. I finally gave up on getting a sharp photo, and took this "in motion" shot instead.

Hans,

Just to let you know, some don't like to comment on photos in the monthly challenge until the end. So, if you want some feedback you might want to open another thread asking for c&c. I would leave the image here, too, as it's a good one. But, I do like Harriet's suggestion. It's a little dark on my monitor, too.

Patty
