The Female of the species...

Thanks for the comment Lee, I can assure you the background is as shot, this was taken from a hide with a screen set up on the opposite side of the river bank.

Dudley Dog by sluggyboy

Dudley Dog

Nice portrait of your lovely little dog, try to focus more on the eyes though rather than his nose, this is one I shot of my little chap http://www.ephotozine.com/user/phil-j-44156/gallery/photo/first-studio-sitting-3... maybe select a larger f number to increase the depth of field, try it again, would like to see some more.

Hope this helps

First Studio sitting by phil_j

First Studio sitting

Thank you all for the comments.
Willie, thank you for your comments, I appreciate them very much, the red/pink tint you mention is actually his natural colour, Oliver has very pink areas of skin around his muzzle and mouth that shows through his fur. He is still a young dog and has a lot of puppy pink about him.

Star Trails at Ashness Jetty, Keswick by awhyu

Star Trails at Ashness Jetty, Keswick

Quote: of the star trails are reflected have you thought of cloning them out and just leaving the trails in the sky?

Great shot, agree with Eric, I feel the refpected trails draw the eye away from the super sky trails.

Unknown Fungi by phil_j

Unknown Fungi

Thanks Tony, I must admit that was my first thought, it was amongst a small batch of Fly Agarics, what made me think not was that normally the Fly agarics spread outward and curl up at the ends rather than hang ike this. I have emailed a fungi expert to try to get an answer.

Women's 100 metres T11 by phil_j

Women's 100 metres T11

Quote: Well done you BTW for volunteering your time for this very worthy event......Big pat on the back from me!


Its been one of the most emotional and humbling 2 weeks of my life Ade, being self employed it was basically an unpaid working holiday but I would gladly do it all again tomorrow if the chance came around again. My final shift was Saturday and I can honestly say the tears were flowing as my fellow Gamesmakers in my area said our farewells, we met some inspoiring people, saw such amazing feats of achievement and watched in awe at the determination shown by all the athletes.
I have a nephew who has Cerebral palsy, I see he struggle sometimes.....us that are considered "able bodied" should applaud our wonderfull "Team GB Paralympians".

Introducing Oliver by phil_j

Introducing Oliver

Quote: Were still coming to terms with losing Cassie and don't somehow think we'll be getting another for a long while

Thanks Ade, it was a real tough decision for us as well, nothing will ever take Ruby's place in our hearts, and even on the way up to collect Ollie this morning, there were plenty of tears in the car.

North Meadow Fritillaries.

Hi Tom

Sorry I missed you, I got to Cricklade about 8.20am, had to sort out a few things for my morning driving lessons before I could get away.
looks like you managed to get some nice shots judging by this one, look forward to seeing more.
I managed an hour before having to head off to work and will upload a shot later.
maybe we can meet up soon!!
Take care.

Quote: I feel that there should be some separation between the flower head and the leaf

In an ideal world I would agree, but I shoot what I see, the flower was touching the leaf and I will not damage a rare wild flower just to achieve a more harmonious image, perhaps next time I may find a better one Grin
