  • Grey seal at Donna Nook

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I was certainly happy when I got it - it was about the 20th pic I'd taken that day and would have been happy to pack up then and go home as I knew I'd got what I wanted Smile

  • Scotland

    Great light and there is a wonderful sense of depth to the image. Great choice of shutter speed as well.

  • Siblyback

    V2 for me. Great colour and the composition sits better for me.
    Well captured and well done for having plan b!

  • Play time

    Great work. Reminds me of the Anne Geddes children's portraits I used to see all over the place.

  • Derbyshire

    Beautiful light and very nicely captured.

  • Britcar 24hr

    There's certainly noise there, but it's no worse than any other pro camera around. This is working at the edge of what's possible with current technology so I accept some noise.
    It's not helped that this is a very dark scene - lots of dark areas where noise will show first anyway - and the lit scenes aren't that bright either so it's always gonna be more noisy than you'd normally get.

    I've not done any NR on it either - I tend not to. I'd rather have some noise and retain fine detail that get a smooth image with no detail in it.

    Nice angle to get them head on - where were you on the track?

  • Hand Placed

    Very nicely done and worth the effort. Good processing to to bring out the detail through the image.

  • Trail Blazer

    Very well captured. And yes, I think the bg works here.

  • Patrouille de France - Fairford Airshow 2010

    Nicely captured, but be careful with the border - the blur has blurred the nose of the furthest right plane and the wing of the furthest left.

  • War Birds

    Thanks for the ID Jester. Description changed.

    Thanks to all for looking and commenting Smile

  • Merlin's Roar

    Indeed it looks like Saturday was a better day weather wise. However, you've made the most of the conditions and got a cracking shot of the spit with moody clouds in the background.

  • Battle of Britain memorial flight

    Well caught. As Dave (above) said a slower shutter speed would help get some prop motion - try somewhere around 1/160-1/320sec to get some motion. Much slower than that can also work but you run into problems keeping the plane sharp - even at the speeds I've said you'll want to pan with the aircraft.

  • Throwing down the gauntlet

    A well captured F-16. It certainly was a good looking plane. I'd like to have seen the two fly together because the blue and Orange would have contrasted very nicely!

  • Grizzled Skipper

    Great choice of DofF and nicely composed. Lovely clean background to help the skipper stand out.

  • Nab HDR Experiment

    Nicely done. You've avoided the trap of making it look obviously HDR by trying to get all tones within range.
    The composition is a little central for my liking though.

  • playground

    Beautifully done.
    Initial thought was there is too much foreground, but actually looking for longer it all seems to hold together very well.

  • Bowled Off Stump!

    Very good timing. Well done for nailing it.
    • 3 Jun 2010 8:35AM
  • Lunchtime

    Well done! Now if you can just get the tongue frozen you'll be right up there with some of the best shots of Chameleons I've seen. As it is, the colours are brilliant and you've done really well to get the tongue with food in the frame.

    Have you tried wider shots with the tongue more fully extended? That way you'd get the tongue extension in for more drama... and at the point of impact the tongue moves slower than the extension or contraction phase....

  • Hot & Cold ...

    Yep, that works for me Paul. Good job on the exposure.
    • 2 Jun 2010 9:42AM
  • Abandoned Toys

    Very nicely done. The manipulation is just right.
    • 1 Jun 2010 9:43AM
  • Scarborough Harbour

    Powerful clouds and good use of the railing as a lead-in line.
    • 1 Jun 2010 9:41AM
  • Barn Owl

    Yep, that really is stunning. Nicely captured.

  • In the pink

    Lovely Mike. Slightly shallower DofF may make it even better, but I'm being picky now!
    • 31 May 2010 6:41PM
  • In-flight meal

    Cracker. Definitely one to keep.
    • 31 May 2010 6:39PM
  • Sorry E.B. ...

    Central position, but it works well. nice slow shutter speed for the water too.

  • Claire mirror image by request

    Not bad, but she has a slightly uncertain expression on her face. Shallower depth of field may help concentrate the attention on the reflection rather than my eye bouncing between the two. There's also a slightly distracting secondary reflection in the photo on the opposite wall - it may have been better to take that picture down first.

    Otherwise a nice idea that with some fettling could be very good.

  • After the Flood

    Do like this. It's got a very tranquil feel to it. The fence really leads the eye and the reflections provide some nice interest through the image.
    • 30 Nov 2009 4:50PM
  • Touch...

    It's good idea, but it looks awkward to me. The arm/hand positions for both arms don't look natural. While the lighting and focus gives a dreamlike effect, overall it just doesn't quite work for me.
    There's also a slightly heavy shadow across the underside of her face that distracts slightly - it's harsh compared to the rest of the scene.

  • Gold#2

    It does indeed look a little over compressed, but I'd agree the tones are lovely. Personally I'd take out the telegraph wires as well because they distract the eye. If you could see the start and end of them, ie the poles, then I'd leave them in but at the moment they're just floating.
