Hi. Welcome to SkySkapes. The photos here are a varied selection of hundreds I, like most digital owners, take most weeks. I have been taking photographs since the early 1960s. In the 1980s I won a photo competition in a national magazine and had a one man show in a local museum/gallery, speaking about it on local radio. I now feel like a beginner again with the complexities of a dSLR and processing. I joined a small camera club in order to learn digital and found myself on the committee and taking workshops teaching camera craft. Our club is affiliated to the Kent County Photographic Association. www.KCPA.co.uk

  • Bright Eyes

    Sorry for the "ear worm" GeorgeP, and for mixing literature references, Bright Eyes is from the film of Watership Down. Ring of Bright Water would be a more appropriate title. Thank you for your vote and comment.

  • the expectation

    This is a great frozen moment in time. I expect you have a number of images and if I had taken them I may not have selected this but it has all the elements of an action shot, movement, drama and lighting. Our camera club judges might comment on the cropping, "a little too tight on the right and too much above the subjects" but I think its good as you know that the girl on the right is going to occupy the space above her and hope the other girl catches her. Very well done.

  • Red Squirrel

    Thank you all, especially Willie for your suggestions and observations re exposure. I can't recall why I had such a slow shutter speed. We had just moved into the squirrel enclosure which was a high walkway in the trees. I was so excited at being up close I forgot to reset my camera. I did want to drink in the moment and not live the expiriance only through the viewfinder. We don't have labels on image displayed in competitions.

  • A Mini Reflection

    This works better here than when projected at camera club. Well spotted or did you ask them to park the cars there?

    I like what you have done with this. I think the jury is still out on HDR for many people but your subtle use of the technique gets my vote.

  • A Croatian Harbour Village

    I want to be there. Can you enhance the sky mate?

    What a poser! A beautiful animal, and don't "he" know it. Well caught Steve.
