  • Hand Held Moon

    You have done really well to get the shot hand-held, I had a go using a tripod and an SLR and had to use a remote switch as even the slightest pressure on the shutter button moved things a tad. Impressive shot.

  • Tuscany Landscape

    In addition to the kind comments by Digger and Stickleman (along with Stickleman's User Award), may I thank all who voted for the photo. It is great to get such interest in a photo. Chris

  • Nacreous Clouds

    Many thanks Youmightlikethis for your User Award - I did, very much! Niknut, it was pretty spectacular and at one point the cloud replicated the star ship Enterprise but I was too slow on the uptake in getting my camera ready. Thanks for all the votes as well - all much appreciated. Chris

    Nice composition. Good shot. Chris

    Great photo.

    I like the shot and applaud your endeavour - and a medal for getting back!

  • Chepstow commemorates Anzac Day 2015

    I like this photo, it captures the mood and spirit of the event. You cannot go wrong with black and white of course but I just wondered whether this would have made a good colour photo as well, the colour of badges, berets and medal ribbons against the black (?) motorcycling clothing. Doesn't spoil the shot for me though.

    Very impressive. Chris

    Great image. Chris

    Thanks for comments and votes, much appreciated. Chris

  • Venice

    I saw this a little earlier as I was trying to upload a photo but couldn't find it when I looked a little later - found the address though. A lovely view. I recall the scaffolding and cranes being a pain as well. I think I would have had a go at taking the crane out on the left of the Basilica. Good shot though and from the ship!

  • In a hurry

    Nicely panned - which neatly obscures anything modern. Pity about the designer glasses on the soldier in the back but you hardly have any control over that. Good photo.

  • The Jump

    I am most grateful for the votes, the kind comments and Alan's Award; it is not often that I get into double figures and a User Award the icing on the cake. Thanks all, very much much appreciated. Chris

  • Tuscan Sunset

    Thanks to Rookery and Split for comments and to all for votes. Chris

  • Wild Selfie

    Great shot and all sorts of humour in this shot. When I opened it my view was restricted to the central part of the photo and I think a crop top and bottom to reveal the middle third would make it even stronger. However, well seen and taken. Chris

  • Barges

    Not sure how you create these photos but great effect. Chris

  • Spitfire At Dusk

    Nice shot - and I hope the vote takes you to 30.

    Thanks for the comments and votes, much appreciated. Chris

  • Afterburner glow

    This is a splendid shot. Was it taken at an air show or from RAF Coningsby? I live not too far away from the base and would love to have a go at a photo like this. Chris

  • Canine Agility

    Well caught! I had a go at this a few months ago and it's not as easy as it looks; the dogs are unpredictable and the clutter around the course is difficult to avoid. It is a great shot of the dog, I think I would have cropped the photo to avoid the wooden frame on the left - the background behind the dog is reasonably clear and I think the focus then would be even greater on the dog's eyes and leap. Chris

  • Scramble Zoom

    I like both photos but find the first the stronger as it is both different and unusual; it might make a backdrop to an advert for an event, or just viewed as a fine shot/effect. The second - and it could be my screen - looks a little under exposed. In the first, the effect lessens the exposure as the whole photo is viewed, whereas the eye goes straight to the bike and riders in the second. Although my PS skills are not that good, I would have cloned out the blue rope as well. Chris

  • Up Close

    A great shot which gets my vote. Before I scrolled down to write a note I had in mind collywobbles exact words - so ditto from me. Of course, we don't know what might have been directly above and it is still a great shot though. Chris

    PS: I have just seen the previous upload which had a broader crop - I still think there is a brilliant shot between the two uploaded.

    Lovely shot and well worth the 30 and hopefully more. Chris

  • Laying it over

    That is a cracker. Chris
    • 21 Jul 2015 10:58PM
  • Fast

    My vote as it caught my eye and you have caught the speed and it is sharp - so, good panning. However, for me, it doesn't benefit from the tight crop. Chris

  • Class act ...

    Class act, class shot - and just as I thought motorsports was dying, a few shots come along! Chris

  • Finally......

    Good to see this excellent shot, Rickie. I was wondering recently, as you do, whether motorsports had all but died on the site; only a few shots now and very few from the road-racing fraternity. I have not attended as many events this year so I am hardly helping things. Chris

  • The Anglo American

    I think it's fair to say you have these well and truly sorted. Excellent shot, I can even see the pilot's eyes! One question if I may, do you pan your shot or do you allow the aircraft to move across your frame and shoot? From your shutter speed I would guess at panning but my shots can be hit and miss. Your last 3 shots have been spot on. The weather wasn't the best for you but `i think the sky adds to the drama. Chris

    Cleverly done - skills!

  • Waiting..

    I think most superlatives have already been used so I will copy 'stunning'! And add my award. Chris
