Thanks Trish... Right place right time for the aircraft shots. Just happened to hitch a ride on a refueling training flight one time back in my Air Force days. I have some more to add but have to get them scanned in first.

Hi Michael,

I dropped by after commenting on your KC10 shot on the photo critique forum.

You seem to be able to capture such wonderful pictures in a simple, no-nonsense manner....there's not much (if any!) detritus affecting your compositions.

I like them a lot!

Thanks for sharing them..and thanks for your comments on my Winter Flower, and River Arun and Marina pictures, many thanks for your time!

Thank you for your comments......I'm usually shy about pictures of myself.

I really dig the balloon shots you have here!

Take care,

Hey Michael,

Thanks for you comment on my storm photo. You have an awesome portfolio. There are a lot of great shots here, but I particularly enjoy your "USAF Academy Chapel Spires" shot. It's one of those great shots the at first appears to be purely a graphic design, then reveals itself to be a photo. Well done!

Great !

Very good portfolio, love your sunsets especially landscape and military shots. Thanks for share.

thanks Michael for your kind words left in my portfolio...although I think you're overestimating me a little...lol! best regards, john

Michael, You're welcome, and thanks for your comments. I was checking out your pictures, and "Nassau Bahamas Sunset" as well as the architecture pictures really stood out to me. They are very well done. It's refreshing to see good solid images with little post processing added. Many of today's responses came out of nowhere, especially since the question you asked was very valid. Some people just take things very personally. But hey, that's their problem.

Congratulations...I believe they cut you off. I enjoyed your forum post and think you made some valid points. Nice portfolio - I like the avaition shots and the bicycle crash.

Hello Friend!

Well here it is another year is passing away and we are coming into the holidays. I think time starts to go faster as we get older, it was just yesterday I wished my friends Happy Holidays and here it is again the end of a year. The holiday lights are starting to be put on some of the trees here in Dallas, we were out last night and some were lighting the trees. I wish for you all a holiday season with family and friends, after all is said and done all we have is each other.

I want all of you to know just what your comments and ratings on my work means to me, your words are my motivation, my drive to discover, to learn this art that we all love, thank you for taking time and thank you for caring about my works. At the same time thank you for letting us see your world, our lives are so much the same, we all care about our families and friends and we all share the same things, maybe someday our photos will help make for a lasting world peace. May you and your family be blessed this season.

Happy Holidays and Happy Shooting

Michael, your portfolio is very unique and beautiful. I love volumpuous red heads (I am one) and appreciate your eye. You have an incredible range--from dirt bikes to sunsets to people to jets. Just wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
