A quick view of brian1208's recent activity.

  • St Clement's Church in Old Romney

    One of my favourite churches, I spent a lot of my formative years with my grandparents who lived on the edge of the marshes so got to know these old "wool churches" well.

    Another great image Terry

  • Friends at the skate park

    its a little cracker Bethan ("cats" comment would make it even better but considering how and why you took it I like the result a lot)

  • Posing Wren

    You lucky devil you, ours can spot my camera from the other side of the garden.

    No camera, I'll pose on the bonsai acer in front of the conservatory (5ft away)

    Camera - forget it, I'm hiding in the ivy (40ft away) !

    Now I've got my envy out of the way, that is a superb image Terry, nice one Smile

  • Goldfinch in flight and other birds

    thanks all,


    Quote:I don't know how an M43 would be better for this subject. Your new set-up is a dream.


    yep, the EM-1 is still best for static work where absolute range is necessary but the 7Dmk2 is a dream to use. I've just got back from two hours shooting windsurfing on our local beach. Garbage light where the EM-1 would have done a reasonable job but the 7Dmk2 just made it so easy it felt like cheating! Smile

    Thanks for my award, they are always valued

  • Griffon Vulture

    thanks, I've seen them flying over Rocamadour, a quite stunning sight
    • 20 Mar 2016 12:31PM
  • A bit of wildfowling on our local salt marsh

    Thanks all, I should have explained that the IQ of this shot is not as good as I would have liked since it has been cropped down to 1267 pixels on the longest side which really shows up any faults in focus and post processing. One day they will come closer and I will be ready for them - I hope! Smile

  • I know how he feels

    Thanks for your positive comments everyone

  • What a great first image!
  • Herman, its nice to find another photographer with an eclectic mix of images like myself (maybe because, like me, you can't decide what you like shooting best ? Smile )

    I was interested to read that you also try to minimise your post-processing, your PF shows what can be achieved following that approach, you have some good work here

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my PF on a fairly regular basis, its always nice to receive comments
  • thanks for taking the time to look at and vote on my Sad Fairy, particularly as it prompted me to have a peek in your PF. I love the ephemeral nature of a lot of your images, quite inspiring - I must see if I can capture something of this feeling in my work. (I love the "moniker" by the way, looking at your photo I would guess it matches your character too Smile )
  • It was good to meet you today Geoff and having had a quick peek at your PF I must say you do some very nice work. I particularly like the macro and BOP images. Look forward to seeing what you come up with from the Studio session
    Brian
  • A classic collection of bird images Julia, I particularly love "Jumping for Joy". You have clearly made this your specialist subject and your attention to detail and knowledge of their behaviour shows in your work. Excellent stuff
  • I've not stopped by for quite a while Ade so thought it only right and proper to do so now. You continue to exhibit your usual range of interesting subjects, beautifully captured and presented. Its always a pleasure to have a peek at your images, particularly as we both like much the same subjects
  • Now that is an impressive portfolio, a good range of subjects each beautifully treated
  • My kind of subjects well shot and presented. A pleasure to look through your PF Jean
  • What a gorgeous portfolio Sandra, I don't know how I've missed it before but will be keeping an eye on your images in future.

    The squirrels are delightful, lucky you having them nearby
  • Jacqueline, I've enjoyed looking through your portfolio, in part because we share a similar taste in subjects (and locations - I love going to Hever Castle) and also because of the quality of your shots. I will have to keep an eye on your work to see where you are taking it next

    regards
