This morning I thought I would share with you one of my favorite bird images.   Not the best technically, but to me a sweet picture none the less.  This was taken in the spring of 2010 in Northern Minnesota.

  4. Terrific shot of this colorful beauty!

    • thanks Phil,, this was back in my jpeg days, and it looks like I over edited it… I may go back and work with it a bit more now that I have progressed in my skills… lol… I was thinking about you a while ago, and figured we would here from you after your morning shoot!

      • Yeah looks like it may have been ‘creamed’ a bit possibly from some NR program I’m guessing.
        I basically just shoot jpegs now. Everything you see on my blog. 🙂

  5. Wow. That’s beautiful.

  6. Your oriole pics just keep getting better. This one is really a stunner.

  7. Such vibrant color and detail. Beautiful photo.

  8. Don’t know about not the best technically!… The bird is lovely, and the effect on the bark is striking

  9. Wow! Such beautiful bright colors.
    Been a long time since I saw a Baltimore Oriole.
    I haven’t seen any down here in Fredericksburg, VA

  10. I know that you may feel you smoothed the image out a bit? I think it works here. Maybe it was somewhat noisy but this has kind of a painting feel. Lovely.

So I’ve been drawing pictures from magazines for years: Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Sports Illustrated. As a result I’ve accumulated a stack of sketchbooks on my bookshelf. I thought I would use this as a place to post the ones I like best. Hope you enjoy!
