  1. All beautiful shots, Cee. The cat’s colored eyes work well, and the textures on the eagle and the bison in particular are just about clear enough to feel.


  2. Thanks Cee for the feature 🙂 Because of you — really you and no me — I’m actually redeveloping an interest in working in black & white. I’d been avoiding it for years having fallen out of the habits of my early years in photography where I worked ONLY in black & white. I wonder if you realize how influential you have been on me and other people? Well, here’s to YOU!


  3. Some wonderful photos. I love the eagle. We have them in Switzerland, but they live in such high dangerous places you would have to be a mountaineer to see one. I am not sure about buffalos, we just have cows.


  4. Hi Cee,
    I played a little out-of-the- box with this one. The birds I selected are very colorful. They were lost in B & W.
    But, I had started the editing and had a little fun. Hope you don’t mind my pushing the envelope of the challenge.
    Great eagle photograph. I like the way the feathers on his head are sticking up. The cat is a cutie too.
    Thanks for hosting.
    Isadora 😎


  5. I adore eagles. Beautiful. I love the detail in the first photo. And I love what you did with the cat’s eyes. Lovely. That last one has great texture.


  6. HI Cee, the eagle photo is amazing.
    I have a question. The photographer lying on the ground taking a picture of flowers – is that you? I can see you getting down there to get just the right shot. On the other hand, I can see you taking the photo of the photographer. I know I would. ;0) Phyllis
