    I was sitting patiently on the back porch today, trying to get the
    hummingbirds to hit one of my flowers. Wouldn't you know it, the
    little bugger came and left in a blink of an eye and so I just aimed
    and fired. I got this shot which, shall we say, could use a little
    help in the composition department.

    What to do?

    "Hey, I know! I'll just take another shot of just the flower and
    blend them later."

    Here is the blended version:

    Yeah, it's a bit sloppy, but you get the point.
    Saved once again by Photoshop and digital's advantage of instant
    feedback.
    Take that, you film luddites!

  3. This is the main reason why your photos have lost all their impact and
    excitement. We can't tell if you really took a picture or fabricated an
    image in Photoshop. Good Photoshopping, though. Nice shot, or should I say
    creation?

    Sadly, we have no such doubts about your pics.

    Go play with your hairy thong.

  5. Total rubbish!
    I know for a fact that Bret's photos come by honestly. Hard work with
    a camera. If and when he uses PS, it's for minimal use. He shoots
    RAW, and as a result, you need PS for proper adjustment, etc. You
    don't use PS, Rita?

  6. "your photos have lost all their impact and excitement."

    As I said, Total Rubbish!
    I honestly feel Bret's work only gets better as time goes on. I've
    never known anyone to be more enthusiastic about going out into
    inclement weather, being eaten alive by insects or risking life and
    limb for that ultimate shot. And ya know what, he achieves
    it.....through honest hard work with camera in hand.

  7. LOL! Lighten up. I'm only yanking Bret's chain and he knows it. I'm glad
    he has a sense of humor!

  8. The way you worded it, it sounded like a shot. If you want a good
    belly laugh, check out Bret's pic of ROCHA SPOTTED IN GAY PAREE!
