thankyou very much for the clicks and comments on my last pic always very much appreciated.
This is my herons stomping ground , a series of lakes called tear drop lakes , I am stood on the bridge taking this and hopefully caught the shape and beauty of my favourite stalking place.
Beautiful image with stunning view,
Looks like a beautiful place - nice composition.
Lovely capture of all that greenery, sure looks nice there Fudgy.. Peter
Nice image well captured.
You captured the teardrop shape quite well. Nice scene. Moira
Nice image well captured - an aptly named lake too
brilliant comp wonderful colour and light a belter nice one
Excellent composition, the colours are amazing, just wondered why you used such a shallow DOF, because the background is very soft, still gets a vote!
oh trev ..I am going to have to come clean ..in public haha
I don;t really understand what I have done wrong , have I set "dof" on my camera ? or have I used the software wrong ...
I really am a novice trev , and I want to learn and appreciate so much you giving me your time and comments , its just that I don;t understand.
I just click with my 70 pound camera from the tesco's and spend half my life now trying to get shots that make me think "yes"
I have put that here rather than in private so maybe anyone can also point me in the right direction.
thankyou trev and everybody for your continuing support of my shots.
such bold colours ... nice one
Beautiful scene Lesley, beautifully composed, very well done.
Not sure if you have a complete automatic camera, if so you will not be able to do much about the problem other than use landscape mode if it has one, if you can set the cameras controls then you need to use f11 or even f22 to get the foreground and background in focus, focus about a third in to frame and at f22 the background and foreground should be sharp, what you will have to watch then is the shutter speed, for every stop up you go the speed drops by a stop so you could get camera shake, to overcome this a tripod would work, it also slows you down and gets you thinking about composition rather than snap and hope for best. If this does not make sense to you let me know and I will try to be more basic.
Beautiful image, girl. This must be a golfcourse with splendid greens (nicely mowed lawn - sheep don't get this good LOL). Trev gave us good advice, Thanks Trev. Keep up the good work Lesley
Like it. lots of bright saturation but it works for me! Well done Fudgy, and thanks for the great comment! ;o)
Leslie, Nice Photograph, that I wish I had taken. Thanks for comment on my
Spy in Sky Photo. Eric.
Thanks for othe message Lesley, I REALLY like this shot - especially your beautiful composition and lovely scenery. I whish you didn't have to haul 70lbs of equipment - you might need a caddy - wonder if Trev would volunteer LOL. cheers
Lovely capture Fudgy.Well done.
Lovely colourful composition Lesley. Amazing what you do.Sometimes too much knowledge can be worse.Listen to Trevor.
Beautiful colors & composition on this lovely scenic image, Fudgy.
thankyou all very much
trev , I do understand what your saying well ....not the f11 and f22 bit ..
my camera is very basic which gives me no shutter speed option , but funnily enough I had just posted on the forum about the rule of thirds , so thankyou for the easy explanation.
shutter wise the only thing I can do (so my camera says) is press it half shut to focus then click , which is what I have been giving a lot of practice. This is why I have problems taking anything that moves haha ...its moved by the time you hear a click
You will be glad to know I do spend some time rolling about in the mud and face down on a flower trying to get a decent shot , but quite literallly have to just aim and click when it comes to anything alive and able to move away.
thankyou very much trev
I don't have a landscape option , but I do have a beauty scene option , which I am hoping is the same as.
cheddar caveman and neil s off the forum had googled my camera and had a good read and told me I literally do have a "point and cick" camera which does restrict what I can achieve , however for the time been its ok for me, untill I get to grips with it all.
Nicely captured. Where is this?
hiya wayne..its a serious of lakes called teardrop ... in milton keynes , its quite hidden away , I found it by default really ( I got lost when I moved here and ended slap bang in the middle of it here ha)
