where there’s smoke there’s forum fire
wow!! far too many awesome shots to mention here .... so I've dropped comments here and there :)
@coastal : thanks for the update on flash photography, I kinda agree with some aspects of the article but not with others ..... great photos as always :)
Nice pics everyone, always looking forward to come to PAD.
My wife asked me to do a christmas card. Best viewed at full resolution.
Some pretty impressive birders out there, considering none of us have $10k invested in our equipment. This one was very lucky. I was at a resort sitting by the pool that was surrounded by a freshwater moat. I was watching an osprey sitting up in a tree, grabbing a couple of shots. All of the sudden, he dove into the water and pulled a fish out less than 40 feet from me. I managed to get one or two good ones.

I used Viveza a little to lighten up around the eye.
@proudgeek: super...even see the fish taken totally by surprise...bad day for him.

@msmoto The show is called "Aquanura" and is located in a Dutch themepark called "De Efteling" (so yes it is Europe indeed), it is a made by the same company that made Bellagio in Las Vegas though, so it is not surprising it looks like Vegas.

Msmoto, nice shot but as a former Pro Star Mazda formula car driver, it would be "OK" if you posted more race car shots ;)
This is an obvious diagonal composition of back-lit Red Maple leaves.

Another good day on PAD!
I agree with proudgeek, we have some nice bird shots on here despite not having 600mm F4 lenses.
Some nice landscapes and birds here.
This idea had been rattling around for a while in my head and I finally got around to shooting it yesterday.
Let's see.... I think I heard a zebra asking for more race car photos..... Mazda, CSR
Nikon D4, 400mm f/2.8 VR Nikkor, TC20-EIII, 1/800 f/9.0 ISO 250
Here's a black & white of some kids frolicking and getting wet at a public fountain taken last year.
D7000 Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 VRII ISO 100 @ 112mm 1/90sec
The VR here works wonder having shot at less than the recommended shutter of the lens focal length. Should have been shot at 112x1.5 or about 1/200 rounded to keep from blurring and getting out of focus considering the unpredictable movement of kids but the VR does lived up to its reputation of a few stop less than minimum shutter speed.
This image was processed using Nik Silver Efx. Try it out guys.
Hawk, nice Zebra portrait. El_Pick, good close up of water cascade. Rifqi, your daughter will grow up to be very creative!
I can look at race cars all day.
From last summer's Seafair performance. I like this more for the composition than anything else, but still one of my favorites.

(what was I thinking shooting jets at 1/160th at 200mm?)
@rifqi - That picture made me laugh! Great shot, even knowing it is staged it is hilarious, exactly something children will do and then the "what?" experession.
That's what I'm talkin' about! Great shot.
Wonderful bird and kid shots. Birdman, where are the feathers?
Believe it or not, my username has nothing to do with my shooting style. The nickname is from childhood, and I didn't think about it until after I created account. I do have a few nice bird shots on Flickr I plan on adding here, though.
It is a another day, but my post is a little early. My first Owl in flight picture. Not the best, but it was insanely difficult in the woods. I managed exactly 1 frame. I knew the Owl was around because the crows were going nuts. I never saw it until it took flight. This is what the Tammy looks like wide open...
This is probably the closes I am ever come to a safari by going to the zoo. By the way some animals looked at me like I was lunch I am probably better off that way. Hope you'll like zoo pics because I have a ton of them. :-)
