  • Gritty Gracie

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

    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.

    Yes Nathan, MarkScollon

    A superb image, full of life and colour!

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

    Absolutely gorgeous image!

  • Remembrance

    A well crafted and properly respectful image.

  • Red Light Boogie

    No overlay, this is a straight shot using the ambient light.

  • 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!

  • UNEXPECTED RESULT

    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.

    Many thanks for the UA Chinga!

    Many thanks for the award Neil!

  • Down to the Beach

    I like this a lot. In my imagination, I can see it as a prehistoric coastal scene, complete with swooping pterodactyl.

  • The Pocket Waits

    The curious lady is in fact my mum! Many thanks for the thoughts Tanya!

    Classy, very classy.

  • Last Light

    Beautiful.

  • Diagonals

    I know where this is, and it looks really interesting but is very difficult as a photographic subject. The cable does kill it, so that needs to be cloned out I think. There may be a good abstract where the two angled and one vertical line meet in the lower half of the image. I see a square composition around that point, cropping out any sky.

    You've prompted me to have another go myself next time I'm in this area, as I've so far discarded every attempt I've made.

    Very subtle and highly effective.
