I don't believe that chickens are known for warning people of things.

Well, I've heard them say "It's gonna eat me! It's gonna eat me!" repeatedly when they happen to see a large object fly over (they aren't picky - it can be a helicopter or a hawk) or something walk through the brush (once again, not picky - it can be a stray dog, coyote, or rabbit, just so they weren't expecting it).


I like to push buttons on thingies that take pictures. Sometimes I like to push other buttons, too.
I only bite on the second Tuesday of every week, usually only mean people - they kinda taste like chicken...

:lol::lol: that's impossible ;) :lol:

I think the lens was back focusing which was why.. I need to tell my teacher (who let me borrow it) he really needs to send it in. Even the VR was acting strange... images came out SHARPER without the VR actually..

Have this one breed of bantam that supposedly "never goes broody" and is "a lousy mother" - no one bothered sending her that memo - she ended up hatching out her second set of chicks this year, four in all. She hatched so late last summer there is a chance she'll do two broods this year.

Made the mistake of starting a photography group on FB with the hopes of better photogs mentoring less experienced ones, etc., and discovered that can be an incredibly frustrating experience. One member, when I suggested that she should have tried alternative perspectives on a shot of a road, trees, etc., walked the two and a half miles back to the site to try my advice and bring back her next picture, which was just a little bit too far the other direction than I'd hoped... LOL

Then there were the pros who don't know anything but how to shoot on auto who have no desire to hear anything but how amazing they are... ~sigh~

Photography criticism is a very difficult thing to do or to hear.

Look on the bright side. The extra exercise may add an extra year to her lifespan--she is an american after all. Walking isn't something we're known for.

haha... I am very open to criticism, in fact with how my pictures used to suck (they still suck btw)... I needed all the advice I could get from people around here. :lol:

I just hate it when people ask for opinions/criticism and gets pissed when somebody starts seriously criticizing their photo and hark back :lol:

I shot with Nikon today! Only problem was... it wasn't focusing properly and I think something was wrong with the lens :confused:? I think I got about 10 or so photos that are actually tack sharp from some 150 photos...

I tested what a 70-200 was like with a D7k!

Love the way the background brings out the color of her eyes.

I felt so bad! I couldn't believe what she did. I have never, ever made another suggestion about her images. Afraid that she'll have heatstroke or something one day.

Just use a roll of 800-grit sandpaper. Very strong.

For me it depends if the criticism is constructive or something that really is just picking for the sake of picking. If it's a teaching opportunity, great. But geez, if not... ~shakes head~

Usually if I ask for criticism, though, I prepare myself for all kinds. I know people come in all shapes, sizes and backgrounds.
