    Quote:Seems just a little over-saturated in my eyes, just an opinion, still a good composition though....


    I'm glad you said that. I think you are right. In fact I think I have a tendency to over-saturate which I need to get under control!

    Nice shot!
    I agree about the above comments regarding composition, but in the real world you can't always organize the model to behave appropriately. LOL.
    I spend a lot of time photographing hares up here in Lancashire. One tip is that although they have more or less 360 vision, their blind spot, such as it is, is dead ahead. Many times I have stood on the road with a hare coming straight towards me oblivious to my presence and pass within a few feet.

    I have just bought a 500mm f4. What a superb lens. The trouble is I get carried away and start taking photographs of things that are, realistically, much to far away. Even with the 1.4 extender the IQ is superb.

    A most encouraging image. I have the Canon lens on order to go on my 7D. Now I'm getting even more impatient. Excellent picture. Well done!

    I share your harey enthusiasm. Excellent shots terry. I particularly like your previous shot of the hare at full tilt. I will get around to uploading some of mine soon.

    It's really odd. I'd almost forgotten about the images and I was looking through my files and thought I'd post one and see what the reaction was. I'm really chuffed with the award, it's the first one I've ever had, thanks for the comments.

    I was trying to show how composing and music, jazz being my particular world, is 24 hours. The lighting was intended to convey that. either late evening or early morning, and the frustrations of creation.

    Quote:Very nice shot of an illusive target.
    My only nit with this one is the lack of any detail in the eye. A catchlight would have tipped it for me, but sometimes we have to take what we get in the instant


    Thanks for the comment John, that's a useful point. I'm going to check the other shots.

    Thanks to everyone for your great and supportive comments.

    Yes Tim, I discovered that very quickly, because unless the tripod is absolutely vertical, or as in the heron shot above, the hide shelf onto which it was clamped, then as you pan round what was nicely horizontal, stops being nicely horizontal, but loosening the lens collar allows you to correct for it.

    Worth every penny!!

    Really excellent shot Chris. I didn't realize you were an EPZ member.

  • Low Pass

    Quote:Now here is a challenge for next - how about a panning shot of its low pass to get the background a blur? Great capture BTW.

    Damn! Now I'm going to have to book again!

    Very nice shot. But tell me, what calibre rifle do you use when hunting damsel flies?

  • Bittern

    That wasn't by any chance the day they were cutting the reeds about 2 weeks ago was it. I heard about it in the cafe and scampered down with my gear but by the time I got there...guess what..

    I've seen bitterns several times at Leighton Moss but never close enough to be able to get a good photograph.

    Very nice shot indeed.
