A quick view of Colin Smale's recent activity.

  • Avocet chick

    This is entirely my argument about the 'wows' of low light sensors nowadays. Yes you can take shots after the sun has set, even in the rain but colour needs light (if you are after colour). Of course you can push some colour back in Photoshop/Lightroom but can you match good daylight?

    On the other hand I am a bit 'picky'... with rare exceptions my favourite light is bright overcast, a really nice soft light and great for whitish birds and possibly even better that glorious 'silver' light that comes after the rain has passed!

    Yep, this chickpik is too far away, the light is lousy but I liked the pose which incidentally is predictable after they preen and so, you have got what you have got, you might as well shoot and see if it's worth keeping, this one is...just, but only because of the pose.

    Like that, shows a lot of depth, like the minimum colour range too.

  • Short Eared Owl

    He was staring right at me too my friend. I was waiting for a male hen harrier but if I had foreseen this guy turning up I would have put my camera on silent motor-drive, he might have returned later then!
