  • Birds on a wire by fotobee

    A very nice group shot. I stayed at Tulbagh for one night last year on the way up to the Kalahari. Shame we didn't have more time to explore the area.

    All the best, Dave.

  • Little Peep by tonyguitar


    Quote:This is just an ident shot. Beyond the lens reach. I hope to get him closer for better quality when the sun returns. We are in a rainy spell at the moment.. He is so small that I suppose he may be very young. TG


    Hi Tony, I hope you don't mind me suggesting that your little peep is in fact a juvenile Spotted Sandpiper.

  • Posted on: Canon EOS R Review

    I've been looking forward to the release of a mirrorless DSLR camera from Canon and I've had the chance to test it for a couple of hours at their Full Frame Roadshows.

    The noise levels are incredible, even at ISO 12800 and focus is extremely fast but for me, as an action shooter, it lacks the 2 most important features of a mirrorless camera - high shutter-speed and silent shooting which is only programable on single-shot.

    Unless Canon issue a software release that addresses these issues pretty swiftly my credit card is staying in my wallet.

  • Posted on: Top 12 Quickest SD Memory Cards Tested

    I have the 1000x Lexar card and it slows down to a crawl when less than half full in a Canon 7D Mark II. None of my CF cards slow down at all and some 600x are faster than the Lexar. It would be good to have a comparison between the 2 formats.

    Quote:To me this image is about story-telling, which it does extremely well so no such comment is needed. That would be like reading a novel and the author having to state at the end of it which parts are true and which are not. Let it ride, I say, and enjoy it for what it is.


    Most images tell a story, but on a photographic website it is also important and correct to indicate the processing procedures.



    And if a story is told it has to be convincing. This shot, to me, simply isn't. I have absolutely no issues with digital manipulation, I've given user awards to the likes of Scaramanga who's images are incredible works of art.

    This to me is like a fake Lowry, a nice attempt but the proportions are all wrong and that's why I can't enjoy it for what it is. This is nothing against the photographer by the way, my comments were about the description by the team and why it won POTW.

  • Posted on: Girl With Raven Wins Photo Of The Week Accolade

    Except that the bird isn't perched on her hand - or if it is, it's the smallest Raven I've ever seen. There's nothing in the description to indicate that it's digitally enhanced which, perhaps, there should be. Yes, I know I'm being pedantic.

  • Posted on: Is Photography Destroying Nature? Some Nature Lovers Seem To Think So

    Yes it definitely is. Not just in Singapore but in the UK and other places. I've made my thoughts known (and become unpopular for doing so) of photographers posting shots of Schedule 1 species on this site. I'd ban photos of certain species taken during breeding season being uploaded just as Bird Guides has.

    Someone watching, say, a Dipper is unlikely to spend an hour close to the nest preventing the young from being fed. One photographer moves off and another takes his/her place ad infinitum.

    Breaking the law is breaking the law in any language. What's more important, getting the shot or the welfare of the subject?

    I've just skimmed through 27 pages looking for the pic of those beer drinkers again to find it's been deleted. It was (still is) a great shot as are all of your captivating images. You have style.
