Woodpecker and Tree

Uploaded by: LarryD

Friday October 11, 2013

Honey Creek, IA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I had to move around a bit to get this angle as the only color in the area was that one part of one tree across the pond. But I think the shot was worth it. What do you think? I am thinking I should crop it differently but can't quite find the perfect shape.

Nicely done. It would look good no mater what you did to the crop. The color was well placed. 10 from SW Iowa

I crop some of mine. I would not crop this one as I like the elongated effect this has! Beautiful capture with the fall colors in the background!

I often shoot with a fixed lens and so do crop. This was with a zoom, though it was racked out all the way. I thought about cropping tighter to the bird, but I would lose a lot of the color which I also liked, so I left it as is.

Beautiful capture of this Red-bellied WP!
I love seeing the fall colors in the background!
I think this crop is just fine, in fact, I don't crop my pix at all, I like to include what I want right in the viewfinder.

About LarryD


I really enjoy this site. The wonderful photos I see here never cease to amaze, and inspire me. I look forward to reading the comments on my photos. I am inordinately pleased when I am awarded an Approvers Choice. I use Nikon equipment and am especially fond of macro photography. I continue to be astounded by the beauty in the miniature world visible though my lens. Additionally, I rarely have to venture very far to find interesting subjects.The Henry Doorly zoo is my favorite location. If you get to Omaha Nebraska. I highly recommend you spend some time at the zoo with your camera. Larry
