    That is so cool! At first I thought you had done a lot of post work to take out the background, not your style. :) Good luck with the game tonight! Tony

  • Hey Tony, the Game is about to start. do or die for the East SEC. i did post out the upper right corner where the driveway meets the grass. i thought it was a bit of a distraction. otherwise a straight shot. thanks amigo!

    i can almost hear the flapping of the wings and the sharp cry. this is truly awesome. the play of light and shadow is perfect, so is tone and detail of the wing. elegance and strength at the same time!

    My goodness, this is an awesome shot! I love how the tips of his wings meet his arching shadow.
