A quick view of Steve Cribbin's recent activity.

  • Gannet in Flight.

    I had a struggle with (Razorbill and Guillemot) flight shots in close at Bempton too Paul.
    I had more success going old-school.
    I set manual focus, pre-focussed at a fixed distance and then tracked the birds, without changing focus, until they appeared sharpest.
    I then took hundreds of images and got some reasonable shots.
    The birds were never way out of focus when tracking, making it easier for me at least.
    Obviously, the more depth of field the better without risking movement due to slow shutter speeds.
    It might be worth a try.
    Good luck.

    Thanks very much for the votes, the great comments and especially the award.
    I was pleased with it so I hoped that others might like it as well.
    Thanks again.

  • Elephants

    Hi matiyalust,

    This is a an interesting image of the elephant family but unfortunately there appears to be something wrong with your camera - unless you have altered the image after taking it.
    I have looked at the four images that you have uploaded and the problem is the same on the butterfly image.
    Both of these images have a strong cyan colour cast to them.
    The image data shows that you have used the auto white balance for all of your images but only the ones with the flash turned on have the right white balance.
    I would suggest that you try to use the sunshine setting for normal outdoor images rather than the auto white balance to see if that is working properly.
    Otherwise, use the auto white balance but leave the flash turned on.
    It will not have much, if any, lighting effect beyond about 3m but it does appear to correct the problem.
    I hope that you are able to get over this problem and take many good photos.

    I agree with Paul and Moira - it is an excellent image just needing some detail changes.
    As well as the fencing in the corner to be removed, I would clone out the hair on the right hand horn, as viewed.
    Keep up the good work.

    I really enjoy this image.
    All attention on the bird - great texture, exposure, colour, sharpness, etc.
    Ideal background.
    Top work.

    A beautiful image, completing an excellent year on epz and a wonderful portfolio.

    Thanks for the mod Martin. It has really added more punch to the image.
    Don't worry about removing the people, I thought about it myself but decided against it in the end - so no visit from the family in the night.
    I had aleady applied an exposure gradient to the sky in Lightroom but it can definitely handle the extra dose.
    I wanted to bring out the sun on the stonework but have lost touch with post-processing a bit.
    Thanks for the work that you put into the mod.

    Thanks for all of the votes and comments.
