We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Our pal in Colorado sends these: "The landscape shot shows my view from where I am standing. Look closely at a tree in the middle of the scene. Now look at the image with my lens zoomed way out into the tele range. Not bad, eh?"
Go up to Juneau Alaska and you have to shoo them away to throw a garbage bag into the dumpster. I've got a picture somewhere of about 20 of them sitting around an open dumpster, with the same worthless beady-eyed expression as a bunch of seagulls.
Not to be contrary, but I believe this is a stand of trees in the Platte River open space near the intersection of 120th Avenue and highway 85. Eagles have been nesting in that stand for years. Huge prairie dog colonies out there make for easy hunting for the eagles.
The enlargement marks it as digital. The edges are sharp in a digital way.
A regular arrangement of pixels, unlike the random arrangement of film grains, responds to a periodic image like a chain link fence or house siding with a moire pattern. To suppress that, digital cameras use "anti-aliasing" filters, to blur all light over more than one pixel. This also defocuses the image a little, so they follow it with an edge-sharpening step, where edges are reconstructed as sharp. That's the digital effect that shows up on digital images. It's something weird in the contrast at the edge.
Most photo software has a sharpen command, where you can see it at work applied again. The image gets sharper and weirder each time you do it.
