    This is really good Andy; as Anna62 says, great symmetry and perspective.

    Good effort Andy but must admit I'm not convinced by the pseudo streaks of light; they're not consistent in direction and distract the eye.
    I do like the surreal effect of the door though.

    Quote:Very beautiful. Lovely lighting.

    Well said! Though I do find the background a bit distracting (especially the black bar). Perhaps cloning that out would improve it. Just a thought.

    Great soft feel to this with some lovely strong tones in there too.

  • Nailed

    Great mono conversion - super detail and contrast.
    The composition is good too, the angles of the nail and plank work well together.

    Great colours - and from my [albeit limited] experience, unusual in bracket type fungi.
    Good DoF

    Superb lighting and composition.

  • Cooling Off!

    Super capture - he stands out really well against the dark background and you've got great lighting across the feather detail.

  • BOLD

    Well spotted and taken

  • The Button Bush. (2)

    A couple of super macro shots here. Prefer v1 for the extra detail of the flower, though I think it's a tad on the dark side; whereas v2, for me, is a tad on the bright side. I must be getting fussy...

  • Relaxed

    Great eye contact between the two of them - and well handled exposure retaining detail in the groom's jacket.
    Super shot.

  • one fly agaric mushroom

    Love the depth of field and low viewpoint of this. The -2 exposure comp. really does give it that dark damp woodland feel.
    Well done.

    Hi Carol - having been 'off air' for too long it's good to see that your pf is a good or better than ever!

    I love this little fella, and you have captured him (her?) really well. v3 & 4 are my preferred images; v1 perhaps a little too soft.

    Thanks for your kind comments on my toadstool.

  • Hanna

    This has super colour and tones, well exposed and a great expression. However, I get the feeling that she is looking up slightly, just above my forehead. Unfortunately this distracts very slightly.
    Perhaps you had the camera on a tripod, you were looking over it, and she looking at you?
    Great effort though - doubt I could so well!

  • Double trouble....

    Great capture of one of natures wonders. Love the crop of v1 - feels up close and personal...

  • Lotus

    What a stunner! Love the brightness against the black background and great DoF - very well thought out and executed.

  • On the rocks

    Nicely timed capturing the one flying overhead.

    Quote:I would go mono with this myself...

    I agree, plenty of contrast in there to make a stunning mono.

    Great image and beautifully captured.

    It's all been said Ian - a couple of real belters here. Super colour and DoF in v1 - which gets my vote.

  • Another Heron

    How could I get bored with shots like this?!?

    Superb timing, detail, exposure

    • 14 Oct 2009 7:51PM
  • Candid Camera...........

    v1 for - a really excellent photograph; it's got everything in there, space yet tightness, detail, depth... captures the golden age of steam superbly.

  • Steve Plater

    A cracker Scott, great panning technique; a pity about the red barrier in the background though not a lot you can do about that!
    Steve - or should that be Scott? Smile

  • Porcelain Fungi

    Lighting is fantastic - can see why they call them porcelain fungus. A superb capture.
    • 14 Oct 2009 7:42PM
  • Autumn Tapestry

    Love the composition, but have to agree the lighting needs that extra kick of direct sunlight.

  • Greenshank/Stickleback

    Saw the title, wondered how you knew it was a stickleback...
    ...opened the image and the answer hit me - stunning sharpness!

    This is a real cracker!

  • Wing Screen

    Great image Dennis; super colours and detail in the dragon fly - and the bg colour compliments it nicely.

  • bursting open

    Awesome set Carol; great detail and sharpness.
    • 14 Oct 2009 7:18PM
  • Classy!

    I love the composition and the juxtapositioning of modern railings against the old pillars.

    Straight? a really difficult job! You did well, though not quite there on the left. The perspective controls in PSE take a bit of practice (or a lot in my case!).

  • Twin Peaks ...

    Ah! Llanddwyn Island - one of my fave spots...
    ...must look out for one of these members meetings.

    Anyway; a great shot, and I love the movement in the foreground

  • XX

    Great composition and lighting; perhaps a slower shutter speed would have added some movement to the 'up and down' - just a thought.
