    ...Roadside Nature
    by Joe McMahon (forum contributor)

    For the past 55 years, I have been paralyzed from the waist down with only partial use of my right arm. OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes This has not really prevented me from a ''normal'' life, and I retired after almost thirty years of teaching high school sciences. I was never an athletic type person, so the lack of playing sports never really bothered me  Top

    ...How To Be A Good Critiquer
    by Lois Wakeman (forum contributor)

    People use the forums both for sharing their experiences and pleasure at capturing an OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes image, and to get feedback on their work. Both purposes are equally valid, but it helps everyone to know why an image was posted. This both avoids any unintentional offence, and saves everyone time.  Top

    ...Writing Outdoor Articles
    by Tony Mandile

    The outdoor writing business is a competitive one and doesn't pay near as well as the travel and some OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes other markets. So if anyone plans to try their hand at it, don't plan on becoming a millionaire for a few decades at least -- if ever. When I first began in this business, most articles were solicited by ME to editors, in either the form of a completed 'script or with a descriptive query letter. Once editors saw my work a few times, they knew what they would get, so the letters could be less descriptive, basically just a brief outline of the article idea.  Top

    Do Something For Yourself

    This summer was planned to be the summer of all summers... PURE FUN. My wife is a teacher and this OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes would be the first summer that she was not going to work. What a nightmare this summer turned out to be! Everything that could happen... DID! I've touched my camera, my hiking poles & my kayaking paddles for a total of about 6 times since the beginning of summer. We've ended up doing everything for everyone else except for ourselves. So, tomorrow, I don't care what has to be done, what needs to be done or what should be done.... I am taking off and walking down the street wearing my binoculars, wearing my camera, holding my paddles, wearing my PFD and also holding my hiking poles. Because if you don't do something for yourself every once in a while and feel real again, you won't be able to do something for someone else.  Top

    The Mekong Gorges & June Dispatch
    by Michael O’Shea
    (forum contributor)

    We are pleased to announce that the Team has successfully navigated the most logistically and technicallyOE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes challenging section of the Mekong River, ''The Mekong Gorges of Tibet and Northern Yunnan''. The section was not without its delays and dramas yet with perseverance and determination we managed to overcome all obstacles. Besides encountering permit problems and having most photos destroyed in a life threatening swim down long rapids, we have also had technical difficulties in downloading digital photos while in China due to the outdated software available here. Nevertheless we would like to get this latest update out to you all just to let you know that we are still on the move and on track.  Top

    Download Bill Richardson's two newest Adobe Photoshop Actions. All of his actions are beneficial. OE Digital Photography © Outdoor Eyes This action eliminates those extra pounds that the camera adds. It is based on a technique on Avondale's Secret's of the PS Masters featuring Jeff Schewe.
    This action is used to correct those blown out, white skies. It is NOT for improving an existing blue sky. Created by Bill Richardson using lessons from Kent Christiansen.
