A quick view of Canonshots's recent activity.

  • Two are better than one

    I often find myself quoting the old saying "If some is good then more is better and too much is best of all" Not that that has anything to do with this image but the title brought it to mind.

  • Old Blue Eyes

    I'm not sure what Frank Sinatra would have made of this oneSmile

  • Housework

    I must admit I have had some nasty thoughts about empty batteries too. A spare doesn't help if you miss an unrepeatable shot.

  • In deep thought

    She's miles away, isn't she.

  • Chappatis Galore

    So that's how you cook them. I've learned something.

    A great story and an image to rival the best of Beken. Unfortunately I have just given my UA for this week, otherwise this image would have got it.

  • Frecce Tricolori 2 Pack em in!

    What a splendid capture. The formation, the colours and everything else have come together perfectly to make a great composition and a very exciting image. Well done.

  • 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!
