    I had been trying to do shots of this event called "Dance Theater" - big dance and multimedia event at a local high school. I was trying to stop the action on stage. I've shot this event for a number of years and had good success. But very dark sets this year! Finally I gave up on stopping the action and tried to capture the feeling of movement.

    Thanks!

    I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize that the real magician was light itself.

    Since we seem to have moved to fishy images, I have to admit that my #2382 is not a fish you'd find in any ocean.ne_nau.gif

    This guy was hanging from the ceiling of the New York Museum of Natural History. I cut him out from his background and added a blue-green gradient background. I hadn't noticed, when I uploaded the image to Smugmug a few weeks ago, that new background shows bands of color rather than a smooth gradient. I'll have to take a closer look in Photoshop. headscratch.gif

    Thanks Eric. It was high ISO plus a little PS work. I was using fast glass but there wasn't much light.

    Great one, Ben. That's how the Xmas season has me feeling just about now. (And I can tell I'm not the only one.)

    Really, great moment, great framing, really really funny moment. Gotta love it.

    Well, I couldn't figure out how to make sure it wasn't a repeat, so I'll leave it to you guys, but I did change it.

    Thanks Rutt for your comments on the sledding picture. The kids sure had a good time that day trying to hit me. They succeeded a few times too, while I was looking in the viewfinder!

    Now a "repeat" question! Has anyone found an easy way to know what you've already posted, so you won't be a "repeater"? Do we need to keep a file of posted images?

    Thanks!

    I spent about 2 hrs working up every bird I found today. Boring things, I didn't even frame them, but I was going to be ready!

    Thanks Nee.

    That's a fountain in Como Park that I remember seeing when I was a kid.
    (I'm 47 now) It's been around for a long time.

    Thanks again.
