    Hey dda, thanks for the tip. I had no knowledge of that club/site. I am def. looking to get involved with clubs and workshops. I made sure I bookmarked it. Hey, I have no hate towards Nikon, lol. I shot all my film photography with my mom's Nikon and my canon is my 1st DSLR. But I think I will be sticking with my canon. I told my mom she can get a Nikon DSLR and fit all her old lenses on it and then I can build my Canon system up and then I can have the best of both worlds!

    I enjoyed seeing your photos. Those birds in flight are nice and sharp and I love all of the great color you got in the boats.
    Regards,

    Thank you Patti and Ron, loving the feedback. I really am surprised at how well I have done with the kit lens for the past 2 years. Not sure if it's my eye for photography or that the kit lens is capable of a lot more than people give it credit for. I hope its a combination of both!

    Just to mention too, all of my photos are edited VERY conservatively in photoshop. Slight hue/saturation and a curve adjustment is usually all that is needed. I did use an unsharpen mask on the brown pelican's facial area to sharpen him slightly more.

    That lighthouse has a lot of history behind it. It's been around since the late 1800's and sheltered a hundred people or so during the 1900 hurricane in Galveston and kept them all alive. As you all know, that was one of the worst natural disasters. Again in about 1920 or so there was another hurricane with a bad storm surge and sheltered more people, keeping them alive as well.
    The lighthouse was also featured in a movie with Patty Duke I believe in the late 60's.
