Cool Dawn

Cool Dawn by jeanie

Lovely subtle colours add to the effect of the portrait format crop to give this a beautiful effect

Looks cold though Smile

Ford Zodiac MkII

Ford Zodiac MkII by topsyrm

A real bit of nostalgia for me as I used to drive one in the early '70s only mine was bright orange with a white roof and had the whitewall tires and external sun visor.

With stage 2 engine tune + early radial tyres, I was always being stopped by the traffic police, but usually this was for a chat about what I had done to it, as it was what they drove (but theirs was in glorious black Smile )

I prefer the B&W version which, as you say, seems to suit it better

The Pollen Collector

The Pollen Collector by Terry L

artistic as well as natural history Terry, your trademark Smile

Up and away

Up and away by djh698

A well timed piece of the action, the background trees give a feeling of height to the jump

The Stare

The Stare by kip1photos

Now that is a good shot Lucas, loads of detail and a really strong close up of a grumpy looking cat Smile

Maybe increasing the f stop to f4.5 would have got more detail in focus?

Could be worth having another go when you are in next in Belgium but well done

Very different, reminds me a bit of an early X-Ray image, creative work Lucas

Focus on Flute

Focus on Flute by cameracookie

I agree with what Pablo has said to help improving your skills but this is a very good effort.

Looking at you shutter speed I'm guessing you may have shot this off a tripod? If so, did you use the self-timer or just press the shutter button? I ask because there seems to be a little bit of movement blur which the self-timer could overcome

I do like what you are doing with these first two shots, keep it up and have fun

Marley Cat

That's a mean looking stare Grin

welcome to EPZ young man

Macro Match

Macro Match by cameracookie

Pretty darned good for a new photographer "CC". The detail and exposure on the match head is spot on

Barn Swallow Bathing

Barn Swallow Bathing by NeilSchofield

Excellent timing, that's a shot I've been trying for over many years (and failed every time! Grin)

Aggressive gannets

Aggressive gannets by ireid7

Fantastic, my favourite activity is trying to get natural history behavioural shots and this is a classic with good detail, exposure and framing - I'm envious

Who's next?

Who's next? by Spring2bok

Strewth, its good but would have been even better if you had left a little more room to see the whole fin and a little in front to give it a bit more space (but not knowing your circumstances when you took this shot I don't know if this was possible?)

Me - I think I'd have dropped the camera in fright! Grin

Loch Awe Rainbow

Loch Awe Rainbow by AnnChown

its a lovely, quite gentle landscape, which I like a lot. (Maybe there is some space for a light crop from the left side to tighten the composition a little, what do you think? )

Jay in flight

Jay in flight by Adamzy

super colour, detail and capture but, on my screen it looks a little noisy, particularly the blue channel. (something I found my 7D was quite prone to at the higher ISOs)

Its a belting good shot and well worth a vote

Nut Weevil

Nut Weevil by Andy_brown

a stunning macro of a less photographed macro subject, gets my vote all day long

What a great first image!


Added Date: 07/04/2013 - 8:48 PM

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


Added Date: 04/04/2013 - 9:26 AM

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 )


Added Date: 24/11/2012 - 4:29 PM

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


Added Date: 02/11/2012 - 8:04 PM

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


Added Date: 29/01/2012 - 5:08 PM

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


Added Date: 21/05/2011 - 7:16 AM

Now that is an impressive portfolio, a good range of subjects each beautifully treated


Added Date: 26/06/2010 - 2:38 PM

My kind of subjects well shot and presented. A pleasure to look through your PF Jean


Added Date: 27/04/2010 - 3:18 PM

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


Added Date: 08/01/2009 - 5:18 PM

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




Added Date: 16/04/2007 - 8:38 PM

Fran, its been a long time since I've visited and rather than leave comments on all the excellent work you've collected since then I thought I drop by here.

You have developed into a first rate wild-life shootist and the range of techniques, from macro, though shallow DOF to flight shots is remarkable - good stuff


Added Date: 12/12/2005 - 12:01 PM

You've developed your own style Debbie - all that hard work and enthusiasm has paid off with some wonderful images


Added Date: 17/06/2006 - 4:54 AM

John - thanks, I never take offence when people take the time to look at my work and leave a comment and in this case I thought it apposite and amusing.

Do have another go at macro work, with your prior knowledge you should be able to get some interesting behavioural shots?


Added Date: 03/12/2005 - 9:33 AM

The banner looks fine Geoff and your latest images are stunning


Added Date: 12/12/2005 - 10:31 AM

As a fellow wildlife enthusiast I admire the work you are showing here John. Some of your recent work is outstanding.
