The Disgrace

The Disgrace by kaybee

maybe it should be finished at last ?

Not Quite Giverny

I like this. love the reflections, and love the infra-red aspect.

On the Farnes

On the Farnes by AnnaBanana

This is one of the most impressive birds in the world. Super-fast and agile in air and water, can also burrow in the ground. Deadly hunters. Great parents, too.

Great picture, too !!

Litter Droppers in Legoland

Litter Droppers in Legoland by bluesandtwos

It's probably a cultural thing. Probably have monkeys etc to scavenge such items. Or am I being racist?


Barbiecide by bluesandtwos

I can't decide if it's a heinous crime, or just deserts ....

Yes, that looks like the same tree. Smile


Patience by Xenphoto

he stuck around for 20 minutes! That's some serious papping ! I wish my insect subjects stuck around for that long. Usually they're off before I've looked at the viewfinder!
I'd usually recommend getting good focus on the eyes. Apart from the psychology of your observers (that's us monkeys) wanting to see focussed eyes, they're fascinating anyway because they're intricate compound eyes and often display patterns and coloured reflections/diffraction.
If you have a spot meter on your camera, assign the focus to it (and use the spot meter to get accurate exposure readings too). Failing that see if you can choose an option where the focus is in the centre of the view.
Most cameras allow you to press the shutter halfway where the camera will autofocus.
So point the lens so that the part of the subject you want to be in focus is in the center, press and hold the shutter button halfway so it focusses, then position the image the way you want it (called re-framing), and complete the pressing of the button to take the picture.
Some cameras have a "continuous focus" option. This should be turned off because the camera will re-focus when you re-frame.

otherwise see what you can do to increase the depth of field without sacrificing shutter speed and noise too much. (higher iso = more noise).

looking at your exif data, I think you could reduce the shutter speed a very long way, and pile the exposure into the aperture (f-stop) in order to increase the depth of field and thereby achieve a great range of the subject in focus.
Assuming the exif data is correct, of course. I have my suspicions !!

Invitation by Xenphoto

Like the colours and the idea.
the blurred foreground dominates a little too much for my tastes. I'd either go the way of the mod, or look to crop it out a bit.


Swirlies by Xenphoto

liking this, great observation.

I would consider a re-crop or re-frame to include all of the swirls, and then perhaps more of a nod in the direction of the two thirds rule, although as I often say, rules can always be broken.

I see what you're trying to do. In my opinion (which is easily disregarded) I think there needs to be more of the material in sharp focus, then the rest can drop out of focus.

I admire your bravery !

a tricky macro subject, you've chosen to focus on the wick, which works.
Have a play with depth of field, and see what you feel.
