    OUTDOOREYES PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST RESULTS
    Text & Photographs By Philip Tulin

    One of the things that man has wished we had since the beginning of time is the ability to see in the dark. Images © Outdoor Eyes Who wouldn't like to get up in the middle of the night and not bump into their nightstand because they can't see? Unfortunately, we can't see in the dark, but we can invent binoculars that can do it for us. That's where night vision binoculars come in. There are several different kinds of night vision binoculars. Some are more expensive than others, but some work better than others too.

    GENERAL WORKFLOW PHOTOSHOP INSTRUCTIONS
    Text & Photographs By Linda Phelps

    I don't know about you but I tend to get single-minded and narrow focused when I am planning a photo shoot. I want to get the big "opportunity" and tend to overlook Images © Outdoor Eyes the small ones. Case in point. The doctors have told me to walk to improve my circulation and to strengthen my heart. I decided to walk to the nearby cypress swamp and see if I could get some shots of the nesting great blue herons. I have a blind already set up.

    The following techniques used for this gourd photograph will give you ideas to apply to your own work flow as you edit your images in Adobe Photoshop 7. Normally my work flow starts with doing a levels Images © Outdoor Eyes adjustment. For this photo the sky was altered a bit before going to the levels adjustment, under image -- adjustments, on the top tool bar. I clicked on selective color in the adjustment menu. Then selected the white color. Here I played with the color slides to tweak a little more color in to the sky.

    PHOTOGRAPHING BUTTERFLIES
    Text & Photographs By Marilyn Villar

    When most people think of a trip to Hawaii images of beautiful beaches and crashing waves come to mind. That was what I expected when I visited the island of Kauai for the first time a few years ago. I had Images © Outdoor Eyes already spent several days in Maui snorkeling and expected Kauai would be more of the same. My second morning on the island, I drove north from my hotel in Wailua. When the road ended at Kee beach I got out to take a look around and discovered that there was a hiking trail called the Kalalau Trail that began there.

    To start off you have to find the butterflies. Look on the side of the road, around ditch’s and where you see wildflowers. If you walk in the early morning or late evening they will not be moving as fast. If you Images © Outdoor Eyes have flowers in your yard, you may have butterflies flying around already. I have wildflower gardens to keep my butterflies happy. They love Zinnia’s and they love my Mimosa trees. The smaller butterflies are mostly low on the ground around patches of grass. Some also like mud or damp soil.

    THE UDZUNGWA MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK
    Text & Photographs By Ian Williamson

    Roadside photography is a fun activity while driving on a long trip. It gives you a nice documentary on the scenes you see along the road. In addition, it takes the boredom out of a long drive. Here I am Images © Outdoor Eyes sharing with you my formula for catching "grab" shot from a fast moving are window that I have developed over a long period of time. Naturally you must have a person who is driving the car. My husband likes to drive. Therefore, I am free to capture all the photos of the scenes that look interesting to me.

    There are no hotels or lodges here. This is a National Park with no roads. This park is a series of mountain rangers and interlocking valleys and only experienced hikers can mange this difficult terrain. These Images © Outdoor Eyes mountains are pristine and largely untouched by humans. The Udzungwa Mountains National park was created primarily for the protection of flora rather than fauna. The park was registered in 1992 and is the first of its kind in Tanzania.
