Clematis

ClematisWhen doing this type of natural history photography in the top class - it’s expected that the subject should be in prime condition and not partly eaten by caterpillars or other garden bugs - starts off well!! Viewed here against a lovely non-distracting background in-keeping with the subject and together with the very nice lighting works a real treat for me. One of those three shots that the camera club judge has difficulty selecting a winner some evenings. Ticks all the boxes and a pleasure to view.

Daniel Thorndike

Daniel ThorndikeAn excellent subject for portrait photography captured here with very nice lighting and the background works fine for me. Looking for constructive comments Ray. Portraits of people wearing top hats are extremely difficult to compose. By including the top hat in this portrait it brings the subjects eyes down to the centre line of the frame - not considered good in portrait photography - but one to break the rules. Works a treat.

Water Vole (Arvicola amphibius)Enjoyed viewing this upload Ray and very nicely framed with the main point of interest (The Water Vole) placed on the top LH third - adds power to the picture. Feel you captured the subject and habitat superbly here and makes for a good camera club natural history competition entry. In reply to your past call's for constructive critique - just in case you get a grumpy camera club judge on the evening I would personally clone out the bright bit of the sky refection on the bottom right of the frame to play safe because it could be discribed as a distraction. Not an easy one - but a well captured shot viewed here. Smashing.

Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus)

Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus)Excellent shot of this Tree Sparrow Ray - and not an easy subject to capture. Love the light on the birds face and breast with the catch-light in the eye being the icing on the cake. Reading above that you are looking for some harsh critique please. In real life these little birds often choose to land in a bush full of branches. Maybe cloning out a few of the branches would add more impact but could spoil the feeling of the birds natural habitat.
