The subdued frame is fine. Any frame colour would intrude on the soft spiritual glow expressed within. TG

Patty's Plum

Patty's Plum by taggart

Plum translucence is glowing through. Rippled petals, delicate leaves. Looks good. TG

The Beggar

The Beggar by Daisymaye

Earnest concentration, restraint, polite patience and human behaviour in order to 'earn' the prize of ice cream. These guys are so smart when they manipulate us mere humans. Super expressive. TG

Waiting Patiently

Waiting Patiently by PeterLaw

My long departed Max was a little heavier but oh so similar he could be related. IQ over 100. You have a great family member here and you exposed for his dark colour perfectly. Looks great. TG

Mexico. Waiting for the bus

Mexico. Waiting for the bus by jerryiron

Looks well focused to me so at 125/sec it seems you may have stopped and held still. Composition is pretty much ideal. I may have used ISO 400 and 1/800 or 1/1000 sec to more or less bracket things for more texture, yet your texture and colour saturation seems very pleasing. It will take someone more imaginative than I to suggest any way to improve this one. I think you nailed it. TG


Mum by Photo4u

These coots are cute and backlight makes the yellow electric. Well done. TG

A Jay and a spot of Lunch....

A Jay and a spot of Lunch.... by NDODS

For this excellent series taken with the same model 550D as mine, A long overdue medal. My Canon is searching around for focus these days. Manual focus practice for me. Lots of careful work there Nathan. A pleasure to look through. Your blue Jay is a sharp dresser compared to our blue jay, or stellar jay. TG

'The door was open!' -  Chapel at Newstead Abbey

'The door was open!' - Chapel at Newstead Abbey by Pollyjc

I suspect you leaned against the door frame or something for this pleasing result. I would have leaned in any case and used f/8 or f/11 sweet spot. An ISO of 800 is very easy on noise in the Nik D7K . You are not far from this ball park zone here and the richly hued result is one of your best. I think your personality is cheery and you prefer a ' brighter' image. TG

Through the window, Cloister Garth - Newstead Abbey

Through the window, Cloister Garth - Newstead Abbey by Pollyjc

Very pleasing concept with an antique looking window included. Good ideas and good photographs. TG

Brodsworth Hall - South View

Brodsworth Hall - South View by Pollyjc

This is the highest standard of careful cultured grounds keeping one could find anywhere. I wonder how the stonework texture would look with a darker ISO 100 and f11 or f/14. Just thinking darker is richer. Also thinking dawn or dusk colour across the facade may enrich this classic looking scene. TG


Ilium by Pollyjc

I envy your clever BG creation here. The bloom is just a bit bright yet this is an impressive art work. TG


Twister by Pollyjc

Mudge is my senior here and with true respect, I differ about the colour cast. This action looks so much better than your other one. I have some of these. The Canadian Snow Birds train here in Comox, Vancouver Island in April. Not easy to get these just right. Love the stopped prop and landing wheel. TG

Double Lilium

Double Lilium by Pollyjc

I don't know how I could have missed your photos but looking through your PF, I see it's full of gems. Variety as well. Often these are on a black BG, yet white works very well here. Keeps it light a delicate, the true nature of the bloom anyway. TG

Brodsworth Church

Brodsworth Church by Pollyjc

This could be the best composition this church has ever had. If you live not too far away this same POV in dawn or dusk light could be different again. I would like to see that too. TG

Harringey Yard

Harringey Yard by JeffHubbardPhotography

A moment in the life...with a secret the dog can see but we can not. Excellent!! TG

Jean Gabin from Santa Brigitta

Jean Gabin from Santa Brigitta by jerryiron

The only way to modify this perfect image is to **** it off center,... left or right. Otherwise It's fine. Mr. Blue Pants carries a lot of kit in his pockets. 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


Added Date: 19/08/2014 - 3:53 AM

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


Added Date: 16/05/2013 - 4:13 AM

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

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
