  Mini#36 Get Well Soon, Elliott!
Entry 3 of 19
   
 
Enjoy the Simple Pleasures       ©2017 Lo
Panasonic DMC-FZ200       3rd place, 138 points
1/500s, f3.5, ISO 100, 131mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: From RAW, denoised, cropped and cloned out distraction in Photoshop, used Topaz5 HDR dynamic brightness to bring out colour and detail       Extra Info: I'm sure that getting out in the fresh air is one of the things that Elliott is missing most during his recovery. This was shot on a local trail where Chickadees come to feed from your hand.

    Congrats, what a joyful image! In the 30 years I've live in my area, these cuties have visited twice, I think. Next time they show up, I'm going to try this.

    Excellent illustration of the simple pleasures one can find in life.

    Elliott, any time you want to walk among the chickadees, just come to Ottawa. The walk is just as nice in summer, and we would be delighted to be your guides.

    It certainly gives one a feeling of fresh air. Both the woman and the bird are lovely. Great image.

    thanks, this is a great shot.
i've been in florida for close to 40 years and my blood seems to have thinned. if it gets in the 50's or less, i'm scrambling through the closet for something warmer to wear.
but i would be up for a walkabout in the snow covered woods.

    Your fresh air may not be as warm as Elliott's (his shot features palm trees), but you have a delightfully cheering scene nonetheless.

    Very pleasing photo. Certainly fits the theme! The tiny bird is a bit lost in the composition, but I think the sacrifice works. That is, to get a closer look at the bird would have meant missing the joyous expression of the woman.

    A good pose and nice use of focal length. In spotty light you have managed to get good even lighting on her face.

    Great portrait. I can almost feel the bird in my hand. Well done.

    Wow, I'm jealous. I've always wanted to try this but chickadees don't come around to my area too often. This is a joyful image!
