I put these in the user gallery, but I'm always looking for some critique. These aren't the greatest shots, but they are some of the ones I like out of what I've transfered to the new computer.

The lightning shot has been fiddled with quite a bit in lightroom 2 but all of the others have only had slight tone adjustments if anything.

Thanks for any comments, I love trying to improve upon my hobbies :-)

I really like the lightning shot. I have a hard enough time capturing a single strike and here you get multiple strikes, great job.

Thanks for the replies. I've actually never had any luck getting one shot of lightning either. Haha, this shot really doesn't take much skill: I went out put my lens on MF at infinity and opened a the shutter until a few bolts had hit. This shot was 48 seconds I think.

The birds are really young. This island is a pretty crowded pelican rookery so I decided to grab some shots of the fledgling birds. All of those shots were taken with my M-200mm f4.
