Following your knowledgeable comments on my flower pic Mavis, I decided to look at your Pf.
Now I understand clearly why you are so knowledgeable ~ and not just about flowers, either.
A splendid collection, which you must be justifiably proud of.

Your porto is a joyous feast, Mavis. So many beautiful flower shots! And the birds; wow! you got a Bullfinch. I used to see one almost every morning where I lived a few years ago. ( no camera in thosedays). Haven't seen one in the 5 years I've lived in my present country location. But I do have a yellowhammer!!
Keep up all the beautiful work!!

Only recently discovered your portfolio, excellent work. I always enjoy visiting to check out the new additions.

I appreciate your kind comments and apologies for simply clicking at times. I wish I had the time to comment on every lovely image I see, but sometimes....we don't do we? A click then just has to suffice; at least with an E2 member I know that they can see who has visited.

Thank you Mavis for the info. Think i need to update my Photo softwear. Your framing so often helps to make a good picture into a brilliant one.

Hi Mavis, thanks for dropping in on my bit recently. I'm glad to see your work is just as popular as it always was and reaching ever higher standards. I bet you are enjoying that Canon SLR. I haven't any where as much time recently to do any photography because my work is taking up more and more of my time. Your portfolio is beautiful and reminds me of what I should be doing! best wishes, Simon.

I'm finding it more and more difficult to keep up with people's portfolios these days so it nice to drop by and find so much lovely new work to look at here. Your collection of flower and bird shots has really grown and is a pleasure to view. Please take this as a "big click" - I don't have time to do it with each of the shots I like! Smile

thanks for all the comments on my very meager portfolio.
Have got loads of pics at home, but never really get alot of time to add most of them to ephotozine.

I hope you are enjoying your 350D as much as I am.
Great camera. Just need to learn photography again, it's been about 10 years since I did any serious photography.

Your portfolio is fantastic, love the natural history and landscape stuff. Some of them are quite stunning.

Keep it up, Chris.

Hi Mavis Thanks for looking at my portfolio and commenting yours is truly beautiful so many wonderful photos..The photo you wondered about of the two children holding hands was taken a year ago for my Grand daughters 1st birthday..My daughter wanted an "old time" look so between us we came up with the outfit etc. I have more taken on that day which I will post at some stage..I have a close one of the little girl which is a crop of the larger portrait of her which is on my site..Thank you for your interest I am adding your portfolio to my favorites

Hi Mavis
I am glad you can pick me out of the crowd. I haven't the chance to spend too much time on EPZ...little 19mth old that keeps me hopping, so jump on the computer when I can. I also work nights so that eliminates that time. I enjoy children's portraiture, but do need to explore other fields too.
Hope to chat...collmar@iprimus.com.au

I leave comments, but unless you as the person goes back to view my work again you would not receive my comment. Please let me know how else to contact the lovely viewers of EPZ

Superb, enjoyable and diverse, those are just a few words to explain the excellent work you have done in building your portfolio! Keep it up I enjoy my visits to your portfolio.

Hi Mavis,

Today after seeing your comments, for no apparent reason, just thought to visit your portfolio. You have a great collection here. While visiting I couldnot resist myself from giving some comments and clicks. Please dont think that I am giving back the thanks or something like that. I gave clicks and comments because I really like those pictures.

I hope I can see more your works in future.

Wishing you all success

-John Padmarajan.

Sorry I don't always have the time to comment.

Take care
