Default Pictures you really like and why

As per a chat conversation.

The deal..

post a picture or two of pics you really like and why. If you have taken lots you like just post a couple and then let a few others post .

Comments and polite critiques are fantastic. Let others know what you really like, how you think it could be improved and anything else. We have some amazing photogs here on chaz (even some who don't think they are as good as they are)

ready

set

GO!!!

This is my first submission


_IGP8559 by ~Dekka~, on Flickr

I like this one as I like the framing of the Mom's neck and the foal peaking out. The texture of the mane makes me happy. Sadly I don't like the background (not much I can do, its Ontario in the early spring) but at least its very out of focus.

I know pretty much nothing about photography, but this is one picture I took over the summer while visiting my parents. It's less "scientific" than many of the others in my butterfly series, which tend to be more for identifying various species and where I see them, but something about the motion and color just makes my heart warm -- perhaps it's just the memory of a weekend "home" for the first time in a year.

This is beautiful.
Perfect colors!

My favorites change all the time

Recently i am loving this one. It makes me think of faeries for some reason and that pretty much suits Abe.

The last one i think is probably my favorite of all time.

A couple of my favs...

These two purely because of the studio aspect, they were a lot of fun to take.




These next two purely because of the interactions. This was Portland zoo a year ago.


Mt Charleston this year.

Katie, I really like the first one, the depth is fun. The second one would be better if there was more definition on Abe's face. Love the wood texture though.

Adrienne.. that first one is hilarious!

A couple more from me


_IGP3424 by ~Dekka~, on Flickr

One of my all time fave pics. I love the colour of the whole picture, so warm. The way the light hits her eye is fantastic


_IGP2436 by ~Dekka~, on Flickr
I like the feel of this one. It makes me sad, due to the subject being Kat. It has an ominous feel in b/w.



_IGP8276 by ~Dekka~, on Flickr
how sharp and the lighting, LOVE the sharpness and way the light plays on the textuer of Dekka's wet fur and the rough rocks.

(don't forget to say WHY you love these pics... I find that as interesting as the pics themselves)
