    Wow, love the detail in the feathers. Great exposure.

    Thanks Blindeye.... (No you aren't blind.)
    I learned a lot through the years just by coming here.

    Hehe. I am actually legally blind. Though, I do regret picking a screen name that focuses so much on that fact, now. Oh well.

    Yes, the online community has certainly helped me improve over time. Nothing like getting a good critique from people who have absolutely no reason to hold back in fear of hurting your feelings. That sounds a little cynical, but I mean to focus on the fact that there are no emotional ties between forum members. Whereas, anything I show to family/friends gets the thumbs up, almost regardless. A little honesty goes a long way...

    Sounds a little cynical indeed. But I disagee with the statement that people here criticise aggressively. Members of this forum are quite moderate.
    The way I see it is that it's good to get comments from fellow photographers who know what they are looking at. I understand what you mean though.

    Yeah, my statement came across much more harshly than I had intended - no malice meant toward the other guys here. I see very little slashing of other peoples' efforts on here. I only meant to contrast the critiques one receives here with those of friends/family. Your point of getting feedback from fellow photographers is much more relevant and to the point than what I had posted.

    I have generally found that the critique here has been more constructive than destructive. Certainly people post for validation, but many are also looking for fresh eyes after staring at an image too long to see the options.

    Nice one Goeff. The horns look 3D.
    I know what you mean by a bit of 'a shock'. I had similar experience one with a group of friends. We were walking down a quiet country lane when suddenly, around the bend, we saw a young startled bull. Lucky it wasn't crazy enough to chase us or we'd have nowhere to go.

    The same pond with the herons had a resident woodchuck that was not easily spooked.
