Some Nature Shots (pic heavy)

Well, it FINALLY stopped snowing here in Virginia, so I was able to shoot something other than the parking lot in my townhouse complex! Thanks for everyone's tips on opening up the aperture and using a faster shutter speed; I was able to get some sharp pics of Tyler today.

I was a little disappointed because some of the shots I didn't post here were overexposed. I guess I'll get it right eventually. Smile The following are some of my better ones. I would love any and all feedback!

Pics taken with my 55-200mm zoom:

#1 f/5.6, 1/500 sec, ISO 400

#2 f/5.6, 1/3200 sec, ISO 400

#3 f/5.6, 1/3200 sec, ISO 400

I really like this pic and will try some other crops/edits. I oversharpened it a bit too much here.

#4 f/5.6, 1/500 sec, ISO 400

Pics taken with my 60mm macro:

#5 f/6.3, 1/640 sec, ISO 400

Feathers were sticking out of snow on tree trunk. They were shadowed by other trees. I may play with the light parts to make them pop more visually.

#6 f/6.3, 1/320 sec, ISO 400

Ball from a sweetgum tree sticking out of the snow. I know snow is overexposed. Don't really know what to do with this shot, but I liked the patterns it made.

I really love the feathers in the snowy trunk. Nice focus there. I always love sweetgum seedpods too Smile in fact I have one on my desk at work!
