  • Model Triumph

    This is a very well executed shot. It's sharp, well lit and perfectly exposed. The monochrome treatment works, too.

  • Smokin' hot chilli.

    Hi Keith. Yes, double boiled water. Part of the problem is that the freezer is too cold, I think. Oddly enough, I already had the NH4 and HCl, plus the protective gear to handle the 1.4 million Scoville chilli... Grin

  • Flavour explosion

    Thanks for the comments. Smile

    My first choice would have been a reflective black surface. Unfortunately the white table was the only pineapple-juice-proof surface available. I must spend a few pennies on materials...

    I learned quite a lot doing the shot. At least I got lucky by capturing a decent splash on only the fourth attempt.

  • Mustang 2

    Good capture, nicely exposed. I'd prefer a little more prop blur, so it might be worth practising those panning skills... Smile

  • Squashed

    It made me smile, too. Nice capture.

  • my old guitar

    Very effective composition, I like it.

  • Kitten 4

    Beautifully shot. Besides, who can resist a kitten?

  • Loch Lomond

    I admit to not being a fan of the oversaturated coastal/lakeside sunsets. Your image here shows how less is so much more.

  • reflection

    Nice capture with some lovely tonal gradations. Might I suggest that it could have been a lot stronger if you had been able to clone out the reflections etc. at the right edge, top and top left corner?

  • Two poppies

    Very well executed.

  • Apple on black

    Thanks for the comments. I know what you mean about the highlight, Dallachy, but I'm not exactly sure how i'd have subdued it. Any ideas?

  • Lethal weapons.

    Thanks All. Smile

    Don't be mistaken, though, she's a little imp. Grin

  • Our new kittens

    Yes, chocolate box cuteness overload. Grin Butter wouldn't melt, etc. Wink I'll post another of the all black one in a mo, while my fingers are still sufficiently unshredded.

    Not to everyone's taste, I know, but at least I'm capable of taking better pet shots than I was a year ago.

  • Trees The Magic Number

    Cliched or not, it's very well done.

  • It smells a funny colour.

    Thanks for the positive comments.

    Al, you're definitely right there. Smile

  • Bee

    That is very nice indeed.

  • Threesome

    Nice, but perhaps a little too symmetrical and stalks too parallel for my taste. That's just my preference though. I'd like to upload a mod with the right-hand cherry leaning to the left and spaced a bit further away maybe, but since I'm not an e2 member it won't let me download the original.

  • Spindleberries

    Black fabric background (would have preferred some a bit less uniform) and natural daylight, mostly from the left.

  • Still life with pheasants

    I wondered why it seemed odd when uploaded. CS5 got a bit confused about colour spaces. Sad

    Ade -- you put the HOT in pHOTography. Phwoarr!Tongue

  • Four of your five-a-day

    Thanks Ken.

    You're right, Alison, and I'm making a determined effort to be creative and improvise to improve my photography, rather than throw money around to no good effect. Incidentally, it was your portfolio that inspired me to have a go at a still life.

  • One for the technos

    Look carefully at the free hand of the man holding the fork. In one of the two superimposed images the hand is, I'd say, two inches or so further from the fork handle than in the other. This is a double exposure. The D700 has a clearly documented multiple exposure function, by the way, including the ability to scale the exposures to result in a correctly exposed end result.

  • Hoverfly (Syrphus ribesii))

    Beautifully strong image.

  • Angular velocity

    Thanks Rach. I have to say it looks a lot better in full res. I've decided I need to break out of my usual stuff and do something a bit more adventurous -- that's what comes of working in a school with a strong art department, I suppose.

  • Where in Birmingham..?

    These days not so much Arts & Crafts as Arts & Kraft. Wink
