  • Shambles

    A good photo and it gets my vote. I think it might be even stronger with a square crop by raising the bottom edge up to where the pavement curb changes colour.

  • Ribblehead Viaduct

    Not sure why but after skimming a few photos I thought 'haven't seen much of Ade McFade' and up pops your brilliant photo of the Ribble Valley. A brave composition as without the smoke it would have been much less impressive. Like Gavin above, I would have gone closer to reduce the risk of not getting a shot, which is why you have made the step to pro - I hope it is all going well for you. Chris

  • When Worlds Collide

    Clever, I have had a go at this sort of thing recently and I am a few leagues below you in standard! I hope this the 30th vote and you get many more. Now, back to my triggers....... Chris

    Very good photo, I hope this vote gets you across the line - so to speak! Chris

  • Abandoned T-33

    I like your photo, a moody shot and an innovative angle; the sky and foreground highlight the aircraft nicely. I think the out-of-focus grass in the foreground also adds an air of mystery as well, although I think I would have removed the blade of grass that is just behind the cockpit (small point though). This also a good record shot because I think this might be quite a rare aircraft and probably left behind by the USAF or Canadian Air Force. Good photo and well taken. Chris

  • Good Shots

    Thanks to all for your votes and for the kind comments; all of which are much appreciated; today was a bit of a 'sighting' session as I was shooting clays as well so didn't have much time to concentrate entirely on the photos.

    Rich, I was lucky and even at a 1/1000 sec the cartridges can clear the ejectors and be out of shot despite using motor drive and moving away from the subject as the session went on (I have a lot of photos showing the caps of the cartridge in the barrel, the next shot is of the smoke but no cartridges!!

    Split, in clay shooting (and hunting I trust) you can only stand alongside the shooter at best. I do take your point but the shot I wanted was the cartridges, which I do agree could use a tighter crop and a higher shutter speed; however, I just didn't manage it in the time that I had.

    Falsecast, you are quite correct and I hope to have another go soon; fortunately my wife shoots (I stand behind!) and I'll have another go soon and if I get the shot I am actually after I will post it.

  • Rob, saw your recent photo of Cal Crutchlow and had a look through your portfolio, you have certainly come on leaps and bounds since those early shots - which were pretty good anyway. Many of your photos would not be out of place in a sports magazine. Chris

  • Peter, I wondered if you had a related skill or interest, nevertheless, to me you have a natural talent and a photographer's eye - not being constrained by the theory is clearly an advantage in the way you work. Like Andy, I look forward to seeing your future work. By the way, I have just noticed your 'avatar' above (the face) which is brilliant in itself! All the best for the future. Chris

  • A very good series of photos which, from the look of your portfolio, show a great deal skill and knowledge in both camera and software - if this is your 'just learning what all the buttons do' then you must either have a natural talent or perhaps incredible luck at pushing random buttons! Chris

  • By chance I caught sight of one of your aircraft pics and wanted to see more; a really impressive portfolio. All your photos are excellent and the jets pin sharp which is no mean feat given the speed they do. I enjoyed looking. Chris

  • Viewed a recent picture and will add a vote in a minute but also viewed your portfolio which I enjoyed; varied themes (less the fruit bowll!). Rather than pick a shot out I thought I would leave a comment here. I find it amazing that it is so often possible to look at a portfolio and completely miss the photos a s they go through; I think it is due to the volume on the site these days. Chris
  • I like your style! Chris
  • Scott, some cracking photos here, good luck with your aspiration to be the MSA young tog of the year - plus your other ambitions; aim high! I am sure you will get there. Chris
  • Mike, what a great portfolio. I arrived here before voting on one of your uploads (13 May I think) and went right through looking for the picture at the top of your home page. I was so delighted to see it as it is one of those shots that has remained with me for quite some time - I am sure I voted for it so I hope I did having mentioned it!! Will try and find that upload - excellent photography. Chris
  • Andy, a stunning portfolio from start to finish. Chris
  • I enjoyed looking through your portfolio; consistently good shots. Chris
