Good evening Bill, Your Portfolio is really something, Colors and Sharpeness Bravo, I will come back, keep the good work in order for us to look at nice things

Thanks Bill

One day I hope to have an impressive array of wildlife shots like yours Congratulations and thankyou for sharing an exceelent portfolio... - - - Thankyou for your kind comments on the Owl Bill and also for your advice .. I have attached the original picture for you to see as it will give you more of an idea of the problem with light, distance and the fact that I only had my 18-55 lens with me.(DOH!).. Perhaps you could point me in the right direction for cropping then geting the light and contrast correct on a shot like that. - - Personally I think the eyes could and should be a lot clearer/sharper that is where my lack of experience comes into it.. Plus I am also a little shy about taking photos in front of a crowd of people so tended to rush the shots.. That is another habit I need to get out of.. Its stupid.. :) ..

Hi Bill!

Sweet porfolio!! Your bird shots are great! I've really been enjoying them! Your recent robin image is the reason they call him "red breast"! Wow! So I tried yours and Mary Fran's theory about uploading and requesting critique all in the same day. It didn't work. My blue angel still didn't show in the gallery (my first picture with a DSLR). Of the photos that do appear in the gallery, I seem to get alot more feedback and help from other members - obviously because it stays up in the gallery longer. That's disappointing because I'm just starting out with a DSLR and could use all the help I can get - all my other images were done with a point and shoot. Oh well! I'll keep posting - and I'll keep coming back to see what you're uploading!

Derek Moore , December 19, 2006; 10:22 A.M.


... on a beautiful folio Bill, your wildlife images are really very good. The flying flowers (great title) folder is probably my favourite, but the birds and small mammal pictures come a close second. Altogether a very accomplished collection of work, well done. Thanks for your comments/ratings on my work.

Best regards,


Eppo Smit , December 22, 2006; 11:22 P.M.

Thank you for all your comments and ratings. Look forward to next year. Have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

Therese R (Maryland) , January 06, 2007; 07:38 A.M.

Wonderful collection of photos. A joy. The "wing" shots (butterflies and birds) are just delightful.

What a great portfolio.

It is magnificent.

Your pictures are a form of beautiful art.

Pleasure to watch them.

PS: I run into Byron often here in Edmonton and see you comment/critique his pictures as well.


Peter Welsh , March 01, 2007; 07:40 A.M.

Thankyou Bill

Bill.. Thankyou for your comment on my Nuthatch photograph. You really must be psychic or something. I was looking at my portfolio this evening and I could see the improvement in stages from when I first joined PN in November. I am slowly understanding how my different lenses work and how to use them as tools. I am glad I took tips and advise from people like yourself and Birte and several other "critiques" on my photography and also the ones about ignoring the 3/3 raters..

Peter Mlakar , March 12, 2007; 08:55 A.M.

Hi Bill!

Excellent photos...Excellent portfolio...I like all yours photos

Eliza Leahy , August 19, 2008; 09:46 P.M.

I liked your owl photo - but when I looked at the rest of your album I realized there were so many great things in there! I love the small birds and squirrels - you seem to have a natural way with them. All your work is very lovely! Wish I knew more about photography so I could comment more intelligently!


Sukru Sarac , September 01, 2008; 07:49 A.M.

thanx for your visit and rating,

Gerald Taylor , October 15, 2008; 02:06 P.M.

For the life of me, I can't figure out how you get the birds and animals to stand (perch) still for you. Sometimes I suspect that you have killed and stuffed them before shooting :-).

You have some magnificent shots of wildlife here. I look forward to seeing more.

Ahmet Gurses , November 02, 2008; 09:46 A.M.

... very good portfolio ... congrats ... thank you very much for your visit ... regards from Nicosia - Nort Cyprus ...

Rick Du Boisson , November 23, 2008; 10:25 P.M.

Hi Bill...

...Thanks for your help identifying my blue-gray gnatcatcher! I have only just bought a Canon 100-400 lens (it arrived on Friday) and I must say, judging by your amazing collection of wildlife pics, that I think this was a good choice - all I need now is your patience. Cheers, RickDB

Taha Idris , March 11, 2010; 04:31 P.M.

Hi Bill

I came to your portfolio by chance and was mesmerised by the photos of birds that you have managed to get. It is the variety of shots as well as the great poses that I was entranced by. I wonder if you would be kind enough to look at one that I have put up on my portfolio at this address:


Many thanks for continuing to submit such wonderous stuff. Regards from Wales, UK.

Dan Steele , April 08, 2010; 10:41 P.M.
