We Don't Play Anymore

We Don't Play Anymore by Coleslaw

Of its type, i think this is quite possibly the best i have ever seen and i have seen some brilliant ones particularly from Wigan 10 and so on, i do not know (or really care) if its a composite or not, if it is then its impossible to tell. If not the setting of this up deserves even extra kudos. the darker tones whilst still retaining detail are unbelievable.
too many of this genre do not really tell a story but this one tells it all.

i do think its time you redecorated though, that is beyond shabby chic Grin

Land Army Girls

Land Army Girls by Scippy

i am looking at the feet straight away to see if they are proper grounded so because of that im wondering if a crop above the left ones knees may work better and eliminate that area of doubt . also maybe soften the edges a bit they look harsh here and there
a lot on this one to like though,

Express Delivery

Express Delivery by Nigeve1

i have been trying for the last 6 years every June and its quite difficult to track the puffins because they do not hold a straight predictable course. strangely the terns i find easy. i have never had any luck by pre focusing.

the 3 d tracking i think may be more suitable for sport and the dynamic (centre position) is the best way to go. you can select 9 /21/ 51 or so focus points on my d300s and in theory once you lock focus the camera will sense movement from one point to the next and so on if the subject moves off the point you locked him on to whilst tracking.

problem here is the more points you choose, the more thinking the processor has to do and i am sure that the response time is greater. i have had more success with 9 points than 21. i position the cross hair on the top third and follow the bird in. i also think that the responsiveness of the lens to focus is important as i recently borrowed a Nikon 300 f4 which i found locks on far quicker and with very little hunting compared to my 70-300 zoom

you have been sitting in my favourites for some time but i just found time to have a steady look through your work,
i am just dabbling with birds for the first time and have much to learn.
your pf is a great reference and is rather inspiring..
would be great if you would give settings for us learners or any tips along the way as you post.
