I'm a lifelong amateur but going digital sparked a resurgence of photographic activity. I currently use A Nikon D7100 but have tended to alternate between Nikon and Canon over the decades!

    The water was sloping! The penguins had set it slopping around, caught mid-slurp!!

    Paul by grunge I just mean bringing out the skin texture a little. The mod is just like the original but I felt the strong colour looked too much like a 'snap'? Still in two minds about how to produce a final version - cropping, colour etc. I tried a tight crop to his eyes for example.

    Hmm, I might try toning it down a little, thanks.

  • Lobster pot

    Ah I know those pots well! If you're lucky you'll find Starlings lurking inside! I often visit.

    Thanks people. I've printed it up at A3+ and it looks lovely on my wall.Smile

  • Springtime windsurfing

    I've got several surfer shots where there is just the surfer and the sea but thought the horizon here gave a sense of position or place? I hadn't noticed the red buoy and will clone it out. I also like the surfer further out adding to the composition, creating a diagonal back towards the rocks.Smile

  • Bamboo Bridge

    The bridge is the subject and makes a great photo. Maybe some human interest in the water maybe ie kids splashing etc?

  • THE CHANGE WILL DO YOU GOOD

    Yes, sharp but depth of field could be larger, but that depends upon the effect you're after. Interesting triptyche style in the first shot.

  • two boys

    It has a lovely tonal quality and the small boy in the background gives scale.

  • Yewbarrow Swan

    The warmth lifts it from the standard swan shot. Nice.

  • portrait or my Samoyed

    The nose doesn't bother me too much, but would be nicer if sharp! But the crop is too much I think and as you say his whiskers are chopped off. Me being me, I'd also use Lightroom to increase the luminance of the red in his tongue a touch to lighten and brighten it and show the light coming through the edges. Don't laugh, it can add a bite to the image!Smile

  • The Bug

    I like it. Surreal yet real if you know what I mean! The magenta/blue cast shouldn't be hard to knock back a little? What software you have?

  • Swan neck

    Thanks for the votes.

  • Sunseeker Rally 2012

    I was there too Trev but in an even worse spot as there was no sense of action in my shots, so well done!

  • That's Lunch Then!

    Great shots, especially to keep him in focus! No. 6 is a dead ringer for one of mine, which I suspect is the same bird at the same spot on the same river!!

    Make a great alternative to Turkey .....

  • Bygone Barn

    Thanks for the comments. Yes, the lens wide open was a c*ckup on my part! Only realised later. The trouble is, my 7D is setup with 3 customised shooting modes and also has all the others and it is so easy to find you've set the wrong one unless you're really careful. I was also in a rush because people kept coming in and nosing around too!

    I think pants was the right word actually. Sorry. I agree with the sentiment though.

  • Sunrise

    Needs more than a nice sky though. Hard, I know as when there, you just have to photograph it don't you?!
    • 16 Mar 2012 7:53PM
  • Short Eared Owl

    Just seen your profile and how young you are - that would have been a great shot for any adult let alone a youngster!

  • Star Cookie Cutter

    I thought it was taken from inside a washing machine at first! Unusual viewpoint, not sure it works.

    Great comp, needs to be mono I think.
