In his prime

In his prime by M_squared

Sorry, but believing honesty ot be the best policy, i have to say not to your normal quality - the 3/4 duck behind i think spoils this one, and that white area is still a little too bright at -2/3.

Singing with pride

Singing with pride by martin174

Martin, i don't wish to patronise but it is really good to see correct use of +EC and so on. However, for my personal preference, i think a tad too centralised and improved by cropping of the majority of that left hand side.

Farne Puffins.

Farne Puffins. by peterthowe

so difficult to capture the two extremes when the light is so bright, marginally over-exposed for my personal preference but then again a lot of folk think that i shoot dark.

for those with less experience than yourself perhaps a note regards your exposure mode and whether 'podded' else folk could be attempting to emulate those settings and getting considerably blurred images.


jump.... by brownstonechip

well caught, and so good to see someone else that 'does sports' in Aperture. as above, well timed and great choice of depth


Gyr-Peregrine by esoxlucius

I hope folk realise how much skill (and a little luck) is involved in getting a head-on image of something this fast! Again, well done.


Falcon by SickChit

Even at 200mm on a crop-sensor that is close - i assume a captive bird? Either way, a good shot and a surprising result for neutral EC - well done.

f2.8!! what sort of fool shoots wildlife at 2.8? oh yeah, i do Wink

love it, well done for not sticking to the 'rules'

Peregrine Falcon

Peregrine Falcon by RobertTurley

hi Robert, a couple of questions if i may - even if of no merit to you or I, perhaps other viewers will gain something from your answers.

Why did you choose such a high ISO?

Why did you use Shutter Priority, and why 1/2000?

How much manipulation did you have to do with the exposure given your + 4/3 camera setting?

regards, phil

Venice view

Venice view by dven

a pleasant image and one that is not as easy to achieve as folk might imagine as there always seems to be some form of intrusion into the background - here perhaps the wooden post clashing with the dome.

worthy of a vote either way

Marsh Tits in Flight

Marsh Tits in Flight by NeilS

Please address all hate mail to...

Are these truly stunning - YES. Would i be proud of them myself - YES etc etc

however, i think the composition could be improved and as such the images would be even better.

It's mutual

It's mutual by M_squared

Envious but would have liked to see a 'portrait' aspect version

Siberian Tiger

Siberian Tiger by Myathebirdwatcher999

Mya, i can only offer my opinion as it is the only one i have. your original version is far better than the mod - colours seem more realistic. i would perhaps just level the image up a little but otherwise a cracker!


Otter by Myathebirdwatcher999

hi Mya, good to see you continuing to contribute on here. A good effort but consider your exposure compensation - a negative value rather than positive would have given a better result here, use +ve when the background is brighter than the subject (so shooting into sky for instance).

If you shot this RAW just drop your EC back a little a see how it improves, you will recapture a little detail also.



Lioness by wildatheart

i think if you add texture layers then it is probably best to bring the eyes back fully - else it can make them look unclear which (just an opinion) is an issue with "wildlife"

Through the branches

Through the branches by turniptowers

well caught even though subject small within the image, proves that we don't need fancy kit to grab some action shots and sets a standard for us.

Performing Tricks

Performing Tricks by fentiger

Quote: Both variants work equally as well Albert, great timing, great image.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

True, but.. surely if shooting such as subject and giving it such a title, some movement needs to be captured - this could equally have been named "boy on static bike"

Also, i think the composition is a tad too centralised - too late to take it right but just crop a little off the left-hand side so it gives the illusion that, relatively speaking, there is more space to move into.

Not perhaps what you wanted to hear but just trying to help.
