Birds, Trees and a Fountain











Just some black and white shots of birds and some of the places they like to be. I hope you are where you want to be. :) Have a great weekend!

Love these black and whites....great bird shots, but I love the stark tree. Happy weekend James.
Hey....what lenses are you using. I'm saving up for something better.
Can't go with one of those high end $1,000+ at this time, but I'd like a nice mid-range...something sharp. Do you use anything like that?

I'm completely enchanted by so artistic set of images.The happy birds meeting, the impressive lines in that tree composition, the solitude and poetry of the single bird capture, and mainly the magical feeling and reflections in your last composition. Bravo! :)

I love the black bird and the fountain, clever how you hid yourself in the reflection!

C'est difficile de photographier les oiseaux, alors je suis admirative! Quant à être où je voudrais..hum, pas sûre!:o)

I love the one bird in focus on top
and the prominent dark eye in the 3rd shot
these are all wonderful James

John said...

My vote is for the third one, it's his eye that makes the shot

Terrific B&W captures for the day, James! I particularly love the third shot of the bird and, like John, it's his eye that makes it so special! Have a great weekend!

Great set of images James. Beautiful B&W.

Lew said...

Love the b&w, especially the last one!

James Owens said...

all are wonderful, but perhaps the first for me -- some stark threat in that tree grasping like a skeletal hand!!

Very nice shots!The first one looks as if you placed the bird on the picture after.

I love this series of black and white images. The high contrast, subject matter, the pared down compositions, and the perfect depth of field for each subject. Excellent work!

Neat angles you chose for these shots. I like your creativitiy!

I like these bird and tree monochromes... and I like where I am (but not overly enthused about leaving yet again). The blackbirds eye is compelling, as are its feet.
