above the clouds

above the clouds by jocas

Interesting that your cell phone uses high shutter speeds. Under exposes a bit but delivers rich colour and avoids burn outs. Something to keep in mind for your own camera setting ideas. Which Chalet do you like best, V1 or V4? I like V4 best because the [ backside ] is nearer the frame. Well also because its level but that's so quick to fix in Google's Picassa. Do you think the image in V1 is less appealing ' dead center' ? Don't get me wrong. Your images would make fine Christmas or friendship cards. TG

having a break

Jaunty hip. Body language suggests a cheery carefree gal enjoying some leisure time. A totally pleasing newsstand moment. TG

old tractor

old tractor by jocas

Here is a tiny tweak or rule of thumb. This is an excellent image of yours. It is often a good idea to have the back , [ rear wheel ] near the frame and so allow more front room. I suspect you liked that bit of stone wall. Your tractor is a total winner on its own. Human nature seems to prefer things a little to one side or the other. Also quick bracketing for this could be by shutter speeds ex; 1/250 - 1/500 - 1/640.

Pale colours and copper green roof makes this a most beautiful church. A setting of providing foods is perfect for a church. The theme fits like a glove. TG

Getting that pleasing personal look as if looking directly at you rather than at a camera. Wow! TG

Bald eagle in flight

Do you own a drone? Wonderful image. The US mint may want to use this. TG

Mighty Macro Ant

A wild bloom from outer space. No wonder the ant is confused. A super original!! TG

Pink bill, brown eye patch; certainly an exotic looking fellow to my eyes. That's what high speed and ISO are for. You use them to full advantage. Results are great! TG

Mammoth Springs

Mammoth Springs by Stephen_B

There are more deer on lawns here in Comox Vancouver Island than there are dogs. Your deer are more numerous and more regal looking than ours. One has a radio neck collar. Healthy looking too. Makes a very interesting image with tree colours and a person or two beyond. TG

Hey Baldy.....

Hey Baldy..... by PhilT2

Hey Baldy. You take life too seriously but looking as regal as royalty, no one will say a word.
All four are impressive intimate portraits. TG

Inside The Temple

Taking off

Taking off by rgg

I have tried this and its not easy. Often the steps are too far apart. Here you caught plenty in one frame and the splashes are powerful. End result is excellent. Well done. TG


general by shydallah

Composition is fine. When I take these it seems shutter speed changes are a quick way to buy insurance.
Keeping ISO @ 160 and F/@ 7.1,... shoot 1/250,....1/500...1/1000 and even a crazy 1/1200.
Then you could bring one of these underexposures up for rich colour without over exposing the white top part. This is only one way to cover bases. There are others that people may suggest like changing f/ values. In bright light f/11 to f/16 would improve things, but careful above f/16 as there can be lens defraction problems. TG

Tilt To Port

Tilt To Port by TelStar

The clouds, the sand and the hull colours. I like this! TG

A walk in the tunnel. Beautiful woodsy pathway. TG

Frame me

All three are very good, yet V1 clearly shows us a candidate for the next 007, James Bond. TG

How come I missed all this? Addictive collection to sift through and I am enjoying very much. Been north but not to your magic land. Always liked points north. Churchill Manitoba, Resolute Bay, Greenland, Elsmere Island. The land of sharper contrasts. Beautiful. TG

Wow!... Those Red Kite shots are super. Well all your birds are nicely cropped and looking good. You sure don't need any advice from me. I'm quite often sloppy but have switched from medium Jpeg to high-quality Jpeg so detail should improve. Maybe I will use a tripod soon. I hear that helps. TG


Added Date: 08/08/2014 - 11:20 PM

I see that you are a careful image maker. Each one seems a gem. My PF will give you quantity. Lucky if you see a gem or two. I remember seeing that steely 4 eyed spider of yours some time ago. Your images MUST be good if they stick in MY memory. That green heron brought me here. I had an opportunity to get many snaps this July. They are so elusive normally. You had some stealth to get that crisp close, I suspect. TG

New and original twists make it fun going through your very good images. Will check back again
now that you are on my radar. Tony [TG]

Hello Mya. Thanks for taking notice of several of my images. I had no idea you were so young.
Your work is very advanced for one so early in life. Photography is a valuable skill to have. You
have ability in spades so be sure to continue even through difficult times. TG


Added Date: 21/11/2013 - 8:22 PM

Glad to help and I appreciate your input also. The over '30' thing just means that your photo is recognized when you get 30 votes.
#0 votes a a score to hope for and I seldom make it but it's all great fun anyway. TG

Giraffes and elephants are great yet your confronting sea turtle I enjoyed your work. Got an idea or two as well. is the character I like best. I know, there is no accounting for taste. TG

Looks as though you have an interest in moths and butterflies Impressive Quality!. I don't know who is an insect specialist here on ePZ so I hope you could have a look at Bug Troubles just uploaded. Not very pretty, yet so curious there was no choice but to post it. TG

Thanks, nice comments. I started pretty rough and ragged yet seem headed for better images. Slowly however. TG


Added Date: 25/01/2013 - 11:53 PM

There is plenty here that is pleasing. You and I seem to embrace variety. Your eye and composition skills are working very well. Good work. TG


Added Date: 26/10/2012 - 2:31 AM

For a beginner you are doing very well. You clearly know how to crop and compose well too. I remember commenting on a few of your images, but I miss so many as time often fails to allow more commenting. I'm in Courtenay on Vancouver Island. A fairly good place for marine birds in migration. Just uploaded a Murre..[I'm guessing, he's in moult], Wonder where you are? This EPZ site is certainly an enjoyable photo zone. You are doing well and I see you have marine scenes too. TG [Tony]

Cheeky as they come is just brilliant! I like your dogs, especially the huskies. Your standards are high so you have plenty of winners here. I'm a little more snap happy. I do have variety though. You are doing very well. No wonder you enjoy photography. TG


Added Date: 02/07/2012 - 9:25 PM

Your images are carefully taken and presented. Leaning towards professional standards. You tackle anything and come up smiling every time. I make no effort to be so exact and am an unapologetic amateur. There is always the chance I'll make a really good image from time to time. Your beautiful steam machine is great. I will upload a similar vintage tractor. However, while it runs smoothly on gas and oil it is rust from stem to stern. High angle on your B&W tram is fine work too. TG
