This one has a good story. I was walking on the bridge over the water at the local wetlands and shot the first shot while he was fishing. I came after the first few minutes later and he was just standing on the railing. I was literally with in arms reach of him. I got 30 something shots alone with all the other people with cameras around me until the old women started to swat at him because she wanted to get by. He then flew off and I am thinking that I needed to kill that women, but I did not.

Lovely for a first attempt, or any attempt for that matter, Nicolas :) Love the reflection shot :)

Why thank you. I am thinking of printing the first one in an 11x14". I have an 8x10" and everyone seems to like it.

I agree, that first one is a killer! Print that one for sure.

Is it worth trying to sell to someone?
