  • Climbing the Hill

    Very unusual and very effective.

  • No Entry

    @waltknox - it's actually still a library.

    Thanks I'll correct the title!

  • A little red door to where????

    I love doors, especially mysterious ones. Can't believe I missed this one when I was at Belsay!

  • Reflecting on Georgia

    I like this a lot, it's very striking and unusual.

  • Looking Up

    Alas, I think this is an inadvertent repeat posting. So many pictures...I suppose it was bound to happen sooner or later. So well remembered!

  • Gritty Gracie

    Gorgeous. A beautiful, moody portrait, full of feeling.

  • Montbretia

    The working distance for this was quite comfortable. 100mm or longer seems to be a good general focal length for a macro lens. There have been some stellar 200mm lenses, but the cost.....

  • Close Up

    No pixel shift, just a straight single exposure.

  • Charlie

    Quote:Not keen on the orange fringing along the yellow breast feathers but facial detail is good, awkward lighting ?

    Agreed. Charlie was in the shadows and right next to a window where the sun was streaming in. It was very tricky to keep the window out of frame in the limited space.

    Looks like Camelia gets the vote, many thanks everyone! I still have work to do with identifying flowers. And animals. And birds.......

  • "Homo Photographans" (Photographing Man)

    Everyone was looking at Sligachan on the Isle of Skye. I wasn't with this group, they were a posse of photographers from a local camera club I think.

  • They also serve...

    I think you need some more general shots from the front, an oblique view. These show details, but not how they all tie together.

  • The Bird Watcher

    Yes Nathan, MarkScollon

    A superb image, full of life and colour!

  • Owl Butterfly

    Many thanks to all, and for all those UAs! Glad you like the shot! Smile

  • Shanghai

    Absolutely gorgeous image!
    • 29 Dec 2015 12:15AM
  • Remembrance

    A well crafted and properly respectful image.
    • 11 Nov 2015 9:38AM
  • Red Light Boogie

    No overlay, this is a straight shot using the ambient light.
    • 21 Oct 2015 9:27AM
  • Stormy Light

    Simple and effective, excellent observation!

  • Group of Fly Agaric

    Jos, there were several groups in an area maybe fifty feet across.

  • I Wish.......

    Absolutely superb!

  • Vulcan

    I like the way the plane is making its last exit, which it is of course.

  • Treant

    Yep, he's real and dressed up! Many thanks also for the award!
    • 22 Aug 2015 4:24PM

    The simplest approach is to make a black and white "pseudo infrared" image in Photoshop. I use Channel Mixer for this. You press the mono button, up the red and green channels and down the blue. Then tweak red and green channels to taste.

  • Fairey Gannet 2

    It apparently increases the efficiency and performance of an aircraft, at the penalty of a substantial increase in noise. The gearing necessary adds weight and sacrifices some of the performance benefit, but it was still regarded as an advantage in a few military aircraft.

    Hope that helps!

  • Inky Adrian

    Adrian is a talented photographer and an amazing pipe player - as in Highland Bagpipes. He has performed at the House of Lords and I think you might find a YouTube video if you search. Yes, he has a kindly face and that reflects his personality.
