Re: Needs additions

Re: Needs additions

What the hell does it need; it already has everything! !

Hey, that bird looks familiar. Okay, I won't
open a can of worms, but that bird could use
some worms right now ...

Can I lower my vote to 8/10 ? Please ..

No dog, no llama, no beer, no cactus and the rock isn't red.

Re: Needs additions

No Larry, votes are strictly only supposed to be 10/10 or nothing. Otherwise it's EXTREMELY RUDE!

(In all seriousness, vote as you please!)

Re: Needs additions

You're right, I still need to get over the
extreme habit of voting 10/10 on everything ..

It's hard to teach an Old Dog new tricks ...

Re: Needs additions

I think he expects a raptor soaring from the dawn sky, and perfectly placed and perfectly focused against a perfectly focused background. I mean, don't you get such shots all the time?

Such rewards await those who arise in the wee hours of the day.

Re: Needs additions

Actually, I'd rather see a couple of rapturous ducks.

Re: Needs additions

No alpine-glow. The eagle has to be illuminated by the first rays of rising sun.

Re: Needs additions

Well, yes, a Photo of the Decade should have a self portrait , an alpenglow, a lake with a stunning reflection, a doggie, a horsie, an eagle, an owl, a climber, a mushroom, a tree, a Karakorum Hoghway bus, a base camp with Tibetan flags, a glass of Swiss milk on a wooden table in the midst of an alpine pasture full of cows, an ibex on top of a rock needle, a bighorn doing a VS climb and a kitty-cat snuggled on top of a summit - all this and more if possible in one! :D

Re: Needs additions

My photography teacher once told me a good photo is made by keeping it simple. This completely breaks away from his advice.

Re: Needs additions

I was, of course, only joking! :D Or wait - I think a misspelling slid in somewhere...Not POTD (Photo of the decade) but FOTD (Flop of the decade) is what I should have written...:D

Re: Needs additions

Josh's photography teacher can't be wrong, which means I must change my mind: Too many additions! LOL How to rate an excellent page which is kind of jazzy? 8/10?

Well it hasn't been smokey here since last September. The forest fires will return unfortunately.

Re: Well I 'guess...'

Right, the Photo of the Decade could use a
little smoke ... just to make things smoky.

Everybody keeps calling that bird an eagle ...
I can tell they don't watch "Animal Planet."

This photo is a fraud!

I believe you've gone back in time to steal the eagle from my shot in Sequoia!!! You'll be hearing from my lawyer!

Re: Time Machine

No; it's just that the eagle really gets around. He's seen over many mountains in the world. Long migration pattern I think.
