  • Dictation location

    #1 for me Bill, always a fan of shallow DOF; have you tried converting to mono to get rid of the slight purple and green bokeh fringing?

  • Where's the girls?

    Beautiful with #1 and love #2 - "No, no, I don't want either of you!"

    See on Saturday then Lillian - 10.30am in the car park

  • Shin Falls

    Sorry I'd missed these John and a lovely series with #1 my favourite; beautiful shot and love the sunny fresh feel and that rich blue water

  • Group

    A striking image Helen and excellent work with the manipulations

  • Forgotten.......

    #1 for me too, and also for it's more abstract feel - maybe the door implies it has a new resident?
    (and also a bit concerned by the bullet holes!)

  • Cakes with Cherries on the Top

    They do indeed, and nicely shot with the colours and shallow DOF; although I'm not quite so convinced by the stalks Wink
    • 7 Feb 2011 11:38PM
  • Classic Nuthatch Pose

    Beautifully shot as ever Keith
    • 7 Feb 2011 11:36PM

    Lovely portrait and great closeup detail in the feathers and the reflection in that eye
    • 7 Feb 2011 11:34PM

    A lovely shot and proudly posing for you Smile
    He won't have needed to have escaped from anywhere, as I think they're native British ducks - certainly they're common in the park near where my parents live and you can often see several pairs together (the females are nowhere near as colourful)
    • 7 Feb 2011 11:33PM

    The most beautiful of ducks in my opinion and love all the colours and patterns you've captured

  • Robin

    Would also agree with Dean and Ron - about the crop and also that the longer and heavier the lens and the less the light, then the more and more you need a tripod if you want to capture critical detail. But they can be cumbersome, slow to use and if they take the fun out of it for you, then you have to carefully weigh the tradeoff and what suits you personally. Maybe a monopod could be a happy compromise?

    I will use a tripod on a lot of occasions myself, but I certainly draw the line a little sooner than Dean and Ron who I guess will spend hours sat patiently in hides> But then I also have to accept that similar results will only come my way very rarely and with a large degree of luck instead of planning Smile

  • Cenarth Falls

    A very inviting scene Ed and I love all the crashing water - still seems plenty of it to me!
    • 7 Feb 2011 8:07PM
  • Hoot..anyone there?

    Lovely shot Lillian, I remember it well; looking long, sleek and refined and with that great twinkle in its eye
    • 7 Feb 2011 7:56PM
  • Syre Church

    What a quaint little church Sue; can't hold very many people!
    #1 for me with that lovely stormy quality to the light fitting with the sky
    • 7 Feb 2011 7:48PM
  • ice on the beach

    Both great, but #1 my preference Lesley, with the low view over the ice, lead-in with the tracks, that big sky and a lovely mood with the light
    • 7 Feb 2011 7:44PM
  • Eagle Owl

    Lovely closeup details Ron and those captivating orange eyes.
    And a self-portrait too; although your halo has grown large enough to obscure your face Wink
    • 7 Feb 2011 7:41PM
  • Craftsmanship

    Great work and a lovely mood from the rich earthy textures
    • 7 Feb 2011 7:36PM
  • Iris

    Beautiful closeup Mark with excellent details and colours
    • 7 Feb 2011 7:34PM
  • Jason

    A great portrait Dawn and good work with #1; I do like your choice of darker background, but wondering if you could also reduce the rosy cheeks a little, make it a bit darker and harsher, include the shoulders and emphasise strength instead of softness - exceedingly sexist and stereotyped I know, but we men still like people to see us that way Tongue

    • 7 Feb 2011 7:13PM
  • After the Storm.

    Excellent shot; great composition and wonderful moody light
    • 7 Feb 2011 6:02PM
  • Butter wouldn't melt !

    Lovely portrait Sylvia and nice work with #3, though I still quite like the unrefined original too and the context that it provides
    • 7 Feb 2011 4:50PM
  • The Long Walk

    Excellent shot Trev, great composition with walkers disappearing into the horzion and a lovely feeling of the return home after a fun but bracing day in the snow
    • 7 Feb 2011 4:46PM
  • Just Arches....

    Great shot with lovely tones and details; always impressed by the intricacies of these ceilings
    • 7 Feb 2011 4:43PM
  • Orchid

    Beautiful shot John; superb details and I love the colours and the DOF with the green behind
    • 7 Feb 2011 3:39PM
  • Catch The Birdie

    Lovely fun action shot Alan, although I do think that stamping on them might be taking it a little too far Tongue
    • 7 Feb 2011 3:20PM
  • Knot knotted

    So straight then: weren't you ever taught to avoid double negatives Wink
    Mono for me too Bill, although there's something about the highlights and shadows around the Knot itself that I prefer from the colour version
    • 7 Feb 2011 3:18PM
  • Sea kale & rust 2

    #1 for me Moira, with that striking corner to corner man-made diagonal contrasting with the organic colours and details below
    • 7 Feb 2011 1:42PM
  • "Lanner Falcon"

    Beautiful portrait Ronnie with excellent details and that very direct stare
    Not convinced you needed as much as f10 if you'd have preferred to lower the ISO, and even f5.6 would have been fine for me, but that might be more my personal style Wink
    • 7 Feb 2011 1:38PM
  • Blue Building - Again!

    Excellent shot Barbara and love the distored reflections of the building opposite - definitely colour for me to keep the two buildings separated
    • 7 Feb 2011 1:33PM
  • The Piano Teachers front room

    Excellent shot; a lifetime's collection from travels with interesting details everywhere you look
