      I’d never used a “globe”. A friend brought hers along when we did an evening shoot together last night.  I brought along only one lens (50mm), because I am trying to make myself get used to it..

        Cool shot Pat! I’ve never used a globe, now I really need to get one. 🙂

      Well, this is a great start to the challenge Pat. And, this is a very good pic.  Keep working your 50mm.

      A bonnie baby rhino. The mom is dehorned to protect it from poachers.

        Lovely shot, Charmaine. And so sad that we have to do things like that to protect animals from other human’s. Here’s to more people becoming shepherds of the beauty we have around us in 2020.

        Beautiful ‘baby’ shot Charmaine, I can almost feel the texture of the skin!

      A new experiment in Photoshop for me, a composite of 2 opposite type photos of mine. One a city skyline combined with a country photo of cows in a field. I titled it for entry into my camera club photo contest “Heading To The City”. Does it work?

        I like it Tom! Another thing to try, I really need to brush up my PS skills.

        That’s a great idea, Tom! I also think the colors work great here, I really like this saturated blue versus yellow.

      Thank you, Tersha and Gray  – I’m not “nesting” again. Screen flickers like it will nest and then flicks to this screen…

      @Charmaine what a lovely “maternal” image.

      @Tom – I like it too. A touch of humor here but also equally plausible in some parts of the country.

      @Patrick – thank you! New year New Gear – that was my motto too. Picked up mine Thursday and am trying to get through the manual and get up and running.

      Lovely images all. I acquired a nifty 50 over Christmas, and am soooo glad I have this lens. I am looking forward to many happy hours of shooting with it.

      Terrific globe shot Pat. I think the high contrast sepia tone look adds a kind of mysterious feeling to the image.

      My replies not nesting right either so…

      Another beautiful wild life image Charmaine. Very touching.

      “Heading to the City” works for me Tom. I think the two shots you chose work well together.

      “Future’s so Bright” “I’ve got to wear shades.” 🙂 Great double exposure Leanne. Strawflower looks like a sunburst. Perfect choice to double with sun glasses.

      I like the color combo, composition and bokeh of your shot DaveGillespie. Looks like you’re off to a great start with your nifty 50.

      New lease on life

      My sister found these quick sale, half-dead cacti at the home improvement store.

      Tom – @tojomor  I think the composite works well.  If I didn’t know any better I’d believe the cows are actually heading to the city. Good work!

      Dave G – @davegillespie The nifty 50 is a fun time! I’ve been shooting with one since October and love it.  Great way to capture all the layers in the tree.  For a simple subject, you sure made it dynamic.

      Pat – @patography I love your contrast of light and dark, especially the void the hand makes in the image.

      Charmaine – @joubie Your wildlife photos never cease to amaze me!  Suck a delicate moment between mother and baby.  It’s sad however that she needs to be dehorned.

      Duh, these posts are not going where they are supposed to.  I did reply to Charmaine’s photo.  🙁

      @preston like the texture in those cacti and a spot of color.

      Trying out my new mirrorless and so far liking it very much. A very new experience for me. I’ve only taken  a few images with it so far. Took this yesterday and I guess it could be symbolic of our intent for 2020 – simplify simplify simplify. “Pine Needles and Ice Chips”

      These ice chips look quite artistic! Great shot, Pat.

      Very touching image Charmaine. He/she looks so small and vulnerable but is definitely protected and loved.

      Tom;

      Nice job! The two images work well on many levels, and the concept is so plausible I would never have guessed it’s a composite. The contrasting colors are a great touch as well.
