Barkers Park, Cayman Islands

This is what a national park looks like in the Cayman Islands. Sort of. It is actually a composite of four images that were all taken at the same spot but couldn't be caught in the same frame because of the angles and distance from each other. The chickens were running away from me, the woman was fi...

Re: A Cayman Islands Bank

You have composed the chicken very well with the person at the table Minnie. In a way it's quite comical, because the chicken appears to have an eye out for him in some way. I'm not caring much for the shot of the plaster. Seems too heavy, maybe reduce the opacity some? I do think it is a marvelous...

Re: 'Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks'

Minnie you may not have a fisheye, but you definitely have an eye for composition !!! Your second one, with the ducks and the white bird (species unknown to me) is a great capture. One that I did not get, and the last one with the squirrel, you captured the black-bellied whistling ducks under the t...

A Cayman Islands Bank

I had always had images in my mind of the wealthy, sophisticated international folks who keep their laundered money in the Cayman Islands banks where no one can find it. So while in the Caymans for a day I went to see the nearest bank. Here is what I found there. Since the scene was less exciting th...

Re: 'Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks'

My ducks ain't near as cute as yours.

And I didn't have a fisheye.

But there were certainly a LOT of whistling ducks, and they are odd. I have never seen ducks with feet like that, nor ducks that preferred sitting in pine trees to swimming, and I never heard ducks whistle before.

Re: Nutcracker 2018

Sometimes we just get lucky. When I photograph this last dress rehearsal the ISO is set at it's highest, the lens opening is wide open and I have my fingers crossed. ;-) Wow! You did get lucky, but your skill is what let you capitalize on the luck. The leap, the star, the light-path, the arrangemen...

Re: 'Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks'

Street photography, breakfast and a trip in Audubon Park, New Orleans, we found a pleasant relaxing environment !!! Except for those “1000s of black-bellied whistling ducks!” I found that the duck were unique to any duck I have ever seen.Their beaks and palmate/feet was a color I had not seen in an...
