So, we've got them on the sticks, now all we need is a roaring campfire and some hot chocolate right?

Worst constipation ever.

I looked at all his pictures. I thought they were lousy.. Composition was bad. Photographic quality was terrible. And the open-fire etiquette was horrible, bordering on criminal!

I assumed the blurring was to do with the reposting here? That's really the finished product?
glatt Friday Jan 27 08:36 AM
I went and looked at all the pictures on the site. There were some good ones in there. But he sure does like the double exposure, lens flare, etc. special effects.

I was not particularly impressed with his photography. Sure, there were a few nice ones here and there. But, a lot of his photos, at least to me, seem very amateurish. Many of them are just downright uninteresting subject matter. Some are actually blurry to the point of being unrecognizable. Why on earth would you post something like that on your website? Those get deleted right off my camera. That's what's great...anyone can start a website and call themselves a photographer.

ouch well he is dead and I liked this photo so there

I'm inclined to agree with most of the entries. There is nothing special about these photos. They look like something an average middle school student would generate in a beginning photo class.
glatt Friday Jan 27 01:15 PM
It's all the same bird. I like the composition, but it's just a basic Photoshop job.

One bird, seven sticks...?

glatt FTW. I downloaded it and looking closer, the tails tell the tale.

His pictures are lousy but you didn't have to kill him!
I will be more cautious posting here in the future.

If you put a blank sheet music page behind them, what song would they sing?

is that kind of like eggs over ham?

So are those really shopped? I'm thinking they are since they're all looking in the same exact direction.
glatt Monday Jan 30 08:18 AM
There's no question that multiple copies of the same bird are pasted into the picture. They all have the same position, although some have been flipped horizontally. If you look at any one detail on the bird that might be distinctive, like the tail feathers as classic mentioned, or the wrinkle next to the eye, and you compare that feature to the other copies of the bird, they are all identical. Also, once you get good at noticing artifacts, you can also see a faint blurriness surrounding the birds, especially near their heads. These artifacts are where the background just looks a little fuzzy. The artifacts in this image aren't very obvious, but I can see artifacts surrounding 5 of the 7 birds. It doesn't mean the remaining two aren't shopped, just that pasting them in worked better there.

I see it now.. Oh yeah! And what's the chances all their bodies are pointed the same direction - away! Watching the red wing black birds around here, they all land in different directions so they all protect each other better, with 360 viewing. Thanks glatt.

I must say that its interesting seeing MY image on this post and that another photographer would show it. It was an experiment in blue and layers with photoshop. Funny how folks steal images and claim them to get attention. If you want to see more of my work its at www.patrickclark.com and www.facebook.com/westernmontana I hope you become a fan on the fb site. Thank you! Patrick

to the Cellar, Mr. Clark!

PatClark, if you wanted the photo removed, I'm sure one of our moderators would be glad to make that happen.

She looks like she's had Botox. Which is a waste of money if she always dresses like that...
