It may not everyone's taste but I'm really digging adding glow to my images of fireworks.

I think it's a valid interpretation. Once you extend the shutter speed to get traces, you've steered away from what the eyes saw. Adding glow is simply furthering the interpretation.

Great shot.

I don't recall ever seeing it done before. And when I think of something that I haven't previously seen, I sometimes get nervous that maybe there's a reason no one does it.

Being a pioneer is fine. Being a pioneer in creating annoying images is something else. HA!

Kind of sad news. One of two baby Osprey the whole bay area has been following on a live web cam feed was killed while trying to learn the finer points of diving for fish. He/she was pulled alive out of the water, but died a couple of days later. https://goldengateaudubon.org/expire...nest-cam-news/

It's a tough world for birds learning to fly

It can be cruel. You hesitate, you die, kind of reality.

Last year, I watched two great blue heron nests, 20-feet from each other. There were four chicks in each nest. The first one to attempt to fledge, somehow crashed on its very first flight, 60-feet up in a tree, it tumbled down maybe ten-feet, caught and broke a wing and and hung there dying for several days. It was in a swampy area, so bird rescue people couldn't even put it out of its misery.

In the other nest, one did something similar and was hung up 20-feet from the top, then, while I was there, fell the remaining 40-feet, with a loud thunk. It seemed dazed, but alive, but then it disappeared over night. Maybe a coyote got it, or it flew off, but I never could account for it after that.

Here's the first chick that I described. This was the first day and you can see the compound fracture of the left wing and imagine the blood curtling scream it's letting out as I took the shot:

That's a great shot of clouds down in the canyon. Too bad that the sun didn't break through for you here and there. That could have been better than a clear day.

Hard to believe this guy was in an egg a a couple of months ago. The two chicks from the nest I have been watching this year appear to be doing quite well. Also this is my first bird in flight effort using the X-T2. I won't be replacing my Canon gear just yet, but it can do in a pinch.

Too hot, and too far to get a nice clean image, but it was fun watching this training going on with the helicopter hovering just behind the police boat. They did this for about half an hour in San Pablo Bay.
