About

Welcome to my portfolio. With a passion for travel, most of the shots are taken abroad.

Here are some of the countries we have visited:-
Austria, Belgium, Canary Islands, Carribean, Czech republic, China, Croatia, Ecuador & The Galapagos islands, Egypt, France, Germany, Holland, Hong kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Madeira, Malaysia, Malta, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Scotland, Singapore, Spain, Slovenia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey & the USA.

We were lucky enough to get to New Zealand in 2013...another `trip of a lifetime'. You have to get them in whilst you're still fit and able!!!

Our next trip is to The Netherlands and later in the year the Baltic States. Next year maybe a long haul to Canada or Vietnam/Cambodia.

We moved to Northern Ireland in 2009 and have now settled here permanently. We have recently moved from one seaside location to another. Lots of wonderful countryside and finding new places to see every week. All very fascinating and with great photo Opportunities.

Julie & I now only have 1 cat. In the last year we have lost `Jimmy' and `Thomas'. They both lived to the ripe old age of at least 20. Our more recent arrival, Mia, a Birman Sealpoint, was a stray. We have had her for about 6 yrs. She has a heart condition and suffers epileptic fits, but is stabilised on medication.

Upgraded to a Nikon 3100 this year and still getting to grips with the extra features..It's not a big step up but it's one I feel comfortable with. I still have a Nikon 17-80 wide angle lens and a Sigma 70-300.

Thank you to everyone who looks, I am always pleased to get critique/comments. I often have a go at Modifications, which is a great way of learning about photography and the multitude of software out there. I'm always pleased if others see a different approach to my shots, so feel free to mod too.

Just took a quick tour of your work ( call it a duty for your nice comments on mine) all I can say is wow (well not all) I think it may get crowded in your camera bag with Squeaky Wing and me and no doubt many others.

Hi
Thanks for the modification on my image of the heron.I posted it without any use of editing apart from cropping it. I will start to edit in lightroom etc after i become more confident in what i am doing with the camera. Great portfolio by the way

Regards Adrian
Thanks for the comment on my photo 'on reflection'. I agree with you, felt it needed a bit more colour in it.
Great portfolio by the way!

Wow, I really like your work.
Can I hide in your camera bag and just generally spy on what you do ? (meant in a non stalkerish way of course !)
Thanks for the mod I like it. I was a little hasty uploading the image to portfolio and did not think to crop the top off. Wink

Which do I like best? I can't say, they are all stunning, but as I have been wanting to capture a rainbow for ages that one has caused me a twinge of envy.

Hi cats, thanks for the modification that u hv made on my image. I like the changes u have made on my image. The lighting now has more impact, and the image is more balanced by vignetting the bottom frame as well. Good work!

Among thousands of photographers inhabiting EphotozineLand, Jeff Silvers occupies quite a modest place. Not many photos were rewarded by the members of the site, or the editor.
Yet, Jeff’s photos are simple and clear, reflect master’s position of a traveler and a journalist who is ready to deliver an image to us as soon as it comes into his camera.

Jeff does not bombard others with tens of comments every day, but when he sends his comments, they are always funny and positive.
I like also that Jeff collects his favorite photos.

Cheers, Brother!

"…my showcase is a variety of shots that I like, personally and those that others have appreciated."
Jeff Silvers


Dear Jeff
I feel proud and happy to write an overview of the Portfolio that you founded on the 9th February 2004.

First, what impresses me in your 200 photos gallery, is the diversity of interests and subjects of your photography.
Portraits, landscapes, animals, flowers, architecture, colored and black and white images, all can be found here.

Among all photos that have their own style on character, the top position belongs to your 53 clicks masterpiece, the picture of Taj Mahal.

Another thing that I love is your desire to share all you see with us: you send photos regularly trying new approaches and methods. Most of your pictures have nice titles and brief descriptions that help us to understand better your art.

And the last observation about the PF is that all your photos have very nice atmosphere, they are full of kindness, pleasant and positive attitude to your viewers.

Dear Jeff,
Your words that I have chosen for the epigraph, reflect your credo of an outstanding Person and Master!

Sincerely,
George Rusky
