A quick view of cattyal's recent activity.

  • No fuss still life

    Thanks everyone and thank you Zoran for your award Smile

    Isabel - I think the colour is down to my leaving the white balance on shade - my camera white balance is a tad inconsistent and really needs sorting out - another thing on my list of things to do. Shade works nicely for this fortunately!

    Sorry I'm late - thanks everyone - and thanks Roy for your award.

    I'm dreadful at keeping up at the moment - must do better Smile

  • Tulip - in colour!

    I must apologise for my late return but thank you everyone! Needless to say this bunch of tulips are now well past photographing - guess I'd better buy some more!

  • Bluebells

    Thanks everyone - and thanks to Carol and Peter for your awards Smile

    I must take some more pics of these before they keel over - I reckon I don't have long.............

    Lighting was courtesy of one light with barn doors to the left and a silver cake board waved around on the right side until I got the light were I wanted it Smile

  • Wood Anemone

    As usual apologies for my late return but thanks everyone - thank you too to Stuart and Joline for your awards Smile

    I've still yet to plant these out - trouble is I buy stuff and have no idea where it's going to go. Another 'problem' is that it's handy having them in small pots so I can photograph them Smile

    Apologies once again for the late return but thank you all Smile Thank you too to Mike, Roy and Guy for your awards!

    Rather than converting colour images I'm doing them all in camera - I bump up the contrast and concentrate on light and shadows - works for me Smile

  • Tulips.............

    Thanks everyone - I'm thoroughly enjoying doing these mono tulips - so nice not taking any notice of the distracting colours Smile

    I was pleased to find the vase - it was tucked away behind a load of props on my windowsill of course..........

    oops - indeed I didn't notice the clipped edge Roy - I shall pay closer attention next time!

  • A beautiful portfolio of images and I can only apologise for not clicking on more of them! Now if I had just a bit of your imagination I'd be happy but shall just have to settle for what I've got Smile
  • A wonderful and inspirational selection of pictures. And I particularly like your current profile pic Smile
