Hello and thanks for dropping by. I got my first DSLR for Christmas 2012 and have been trying to improve ever since. People, architecture, long exposure and some creative work are my mainstays; for a long time I avoided anything that moved at all quickly, but I'm even giving that a go now. Andrew

    I've tried but they have never turned up for me. Lucky you, good work.

    I've been lost on those hills many times in cloud - you had a good day for it. Good moody one.

    Quote:Looking at the angle of the bat and the low position, was he caught out ?



    Next shot on the reel is a catch on the boundary. Indeed he was!

  • Cuckoo by jasonrwl

    So - they are not going to win any competitions but - you did get to see a cuckoo and photograph it - lead image in particular catches it well. As they say - well jel.

  • Honest Toil by TheShaker


    Quote: Did you have really good separation from the background, or have you worked on that? Either way, I think this gentle and rather understated look does the lady full justice. A kind and gentle soul, and that shines through.


    Thanks for the comment John - the background has been more of an issue than the lady. It was blurred out of camera but rather too busy and bright. In the end I've just blurred it and darkened the highlights.

  • Living in a Box by DaveU

    You could build a shanty town with the cardboard in our garage. Excellent image, particularly for the times.

  • Who are you? Who am I? by dudler

    Brings to mind a song.

    Watching all the days roll by
    Who are you and who am I?
    How's life on Earth?
    What is it worth?

    It ends there - without giving an answer unfortunately.

  • Let There Be Light by jasonrwl

    Looked more atmospheric and somehow calmer in colour. Nothing wrong with the way you've converted it, the separation isn't there to make it a mono image. IMHO.
