Precious captures.
Just keep this in mind-
'Image result for psittacosis
Psittacosis—also known as parrot fever, and ornithosis—is a zoonotic infectious disease caused by a bacterium called Chlamydia psittaci and contracted from infected parrots, such as macaws, cockatiels and budgerigars, and pigeons, sparrows, ducks, hens, gulls and many other species of bird.'
We rarely get one in our hospital but it is a serious SERIOUS disease reminiscent of Piper's Disease (I tinker with bagpipes) and not to be trifled with one iota.
OK me being paranoid.
Sorry.

Wow, I think Throads has jupmed to conclusions. I have purchased many tutorials over the years, and they tell you they are giving you the files.
You get the raw files, and you do what you learn from the tutorial, and you put your subjective edit on it. .. . Keyword sell and you purchase, not steal.

I certainly have not intentionally stole someone's image. I would never do that. I even participate in some contests here, and I supply my own raw files for everyone to participate. I certainly would not supply a file, I did not want someone to have, they are free to do with it as they wish. Actually I would take it as a compliment if they used it.

I do not earn a living from photography, for me its a hobby I enjoy.
I am actually retired.

Additionally if I felt as throads felt, I would of PM him directly...
To get his position, instead of jumping to conclusions.

If I was misinterpreting the terms, then I stand corrected.

The files that come with the paid training are for you to practice with not to upload to social media and portray them as your own. Intentional or not, people who went and viewed and commented on the images on your Flickr page were misled and you hurt the rest of us by taking the images and doing as you wish. Now Jimmy might not make files available for practice.

you're a little bit late, months back, we were among the first in the aquarium, very hungry birds. The came out at us very hard, even bit and drew blood on my daughter! Those little suckers bite pretty hard when hungry :-P. I was bit pretty hard, and scratched up as well while feeding them. I figure they've got to have antibiotics in their system, way too much human interaction not to be clean.

Did you take any shots of the Sea Ranch Chapel while you were in the neighborhood?

Didn't even know about it...we were driving back to SF from Point Arena, just stopping wherever.

Today I decided to shoot video of the hummingbirds at 120 fps. I also wanted to set up my camera and the Smart remote on my phone so I could begin recording while inside and not disturb the birds. Naturally, the birds were scarce today and all I managed was to get some footage of the adult male Anna's on his branch. I also thought I'd try to upscale the video from 1080p to 4k using Sony Vegas Pro 14.

He's very flashy with his feathers as he looks around and finally takes off. Hopefully, I'll be able to get some footage as they hover around the feeder too.

That was very cool to watch Gene. He's a character for sure.

Thanks Alfredo. I thought the upscaling worked out well too. I didn't mention it but I used a continuous LED light plugged into a wall outlet to be sure I had enough light too. Maybe tomorrow I'll at least move the camera closer to the branch for a tighter shot. Of course, you can bet as soon as I do that, he will spend all his time at the feeder only and not go to the branch at all. :rolleyes:

You did a great job capturing the video Gene. Have you tried creating a perch made of natural sticks/branches? I remember Moose Peterson saying that birds will fly to single branch if it's close to the feeder. It gives the birds a chance to survey the area before feeding.

Another image from the Lourdes Grotto in San Antonio but this time a closer view of the statues.

In this shot, I wanted to capture the beautiful Texas Live Oak trees that are in the courtyard in front of the Lourdes Grotto. David, you're right that the oak trees play such an important role in framing our historical buildings. I image this scene in Spring would look even better, perhaps even around sunset. Captured with the excellent Zeiss 35mm f2. ZE.
