Jamaica Bay Enhanced

I had fun editing these images. I knew I wanted to create lots of atmosphere and a dark mood when I photographed these. The Snow Geese will be leaving soon. Read-winged Blackbirds are singing away as are the Song Sparrows. Ospreys are building their nests. And I saw 5 Black-bellied Plovers at Floyd Bennett Field.

Lightroom and mostly Photoshop in Windows 11 keeps randomly freezing. I wonder if anyone else is having trouble with it. I pushed Photoshop hard to make it freeze while I made these. I have a new super fast computer, an Alienware Aurora R213. Dell replaced the graphics card. Microsoft had me make a new profile. Adobe techs tried everything they could. 20 tech calls later and it is still no good.

    I never did any bird watching during my days on Long Island. From your lovely photos it appears that I missed quite a lot.

    Two favourites from these, the close-up plovers and the first snow geese shot – stunning 🙂

      Thanks Eunice. Tracking birds in flight is hit or miss.

    The result are realy nice. I’m surpriced to read that Lightroom and Photoshop freezes under Windows 11 even with a high performance PC. Mabye Windows 10 is still the best !

      This must be special to my computer. Adobe and others reported no real problems with LR and PS in Windows 11. Adobe is working on it.

    I love all of these, Sherry. Gorgeous! We’re in southeast Texas outside of Houston area and the snow geese packed up and left at the beginning of March. We’ve had tons of red winged blackbirds this winter, too. Thanks for sharing these!
