A quick view of Canonshots's recent activity.

  • Preening

    I love the tight crop, making this image much more than a more conventional bird photo. (But don't get me wrong - I am a fan of conventional bird photos as well and I frequently vote for them)

  • Grand Canal, Venice (2)

    It has not changed much since Canaletto's time, it would appear.

  • Look there, there's an other one of those idiots

    All I can say is that in my cycling days I would never have even thought of abusing a photographer like that.Your 'cool' cyclist was not so cool in my opinion.

  • Memory Lane

    As I remember, my first photo was taken with my Dad's Ensign box camera when I was about ten years old. The subject was our cat. I may still have the print somewhere

    But that's not the point. This is a stunning image, especially for a first attempt with new equipment..

    Fabulous shot. Sorry to learn about your Dad. Remember the good times.

  • Well hello there

    The crop certainly works and the timing is fantastic. But I am rather puzzled by the figure 5 on the inverted aircraft. The figure isn't inverted!!!!?????

  • Just taken a quick look as I'm pushed for time right now, but I intend to be back soon to enjoy these splendid images as they should be enjoyed - at leisure!
  • I see you desctibe yourself as a beginner. Some beginner! I have seen experienced photographers produce stuff not half as good as some of these imsges. You hsve a real talent - keep cultivating it.

  • As a Nottingham resident I find your portfolio very enjoyable. Keep up the good work.

    Like you, I have been into photography for a long time. For years I was a diehard Exakta fsn but I am 100% digital now. It is not the equipment that makes the image, it is the photographer, as your imsges illustrate very well.
  • Barbara, I enjoy your portfolio no end. Do try and keep it up as much as you can even though your new job will be making demands on your time. Best of luck.
  • For a self-proclaimed newbie your standard is remarkable. Keep up the good work!
  • A splendid and varied portfolio. Keep up the good work and thanks for all your kind comments on my stuff.

  • A nice varied portfolio, I have enjoyed looking at it.
  • This is a very impressive PF indeed. I just wish I could produce landscapes like this, with wonderful vibrant colours and a real sense of openness and distance.

    My only caveat concerns the water in some of the shots. Some people like to see running water looking like cotton wool. I am not one of them. I like to see water looking like water, and conveying the frantic sense of movement that is so characteristic of a waterfall. This kind of rendering just looks lifeless.

    But I still like the PF and I intend to learn as much as I can from studying it. Great stuff!
