Re: welcome to my gallery!

Welcome vandechrome - I have had a looked through some of the pictures on your sites and they look great - very bright and sharp. The motobike shots look great, but may favourites are the family shots. I look forward to seeing more of your colourful pictures.

Re: Swedish Midsummer

Very funny Zeb! I can now see the norse/viking ancestry in our own English summer-time rituals. Change the hats, add England football shirts and a liberal sprinkling of tattoos, and change the fish for supermarket burgers and you have pretty much got an English bbq. :D I've been away from the forum ...

Re: A sunset at an Island.

A lovely looking place. #1 and #2 are may favourites and I agree that they may look better a bit brighter.

Sorry Zeb, not come across this one. Perhaps it's so good they keep it a secret from the English :wink:

Re: Hello from East Sussex....

Welcome Rob - you have a very similar line up in glass to me. I have been really pleased with the 50/1.7, 70-210/4 and 35-70/4. I think us Sony new-boys are very lucky to have the heritage Minolta glass available on the secondhand market. What a scoop to get the 35-70 thrown in! It is a very interes...

Re: Care to join?

Hi Olaf - I sympathise as I'm now sipping a single malt, a glass of Highland Park. I'm sure there are some real connoisseurs of Single Malt on the forum, but while we wait for them, here is my take. Ardbeg is a very fine single malt and rates as one of my favourites. It is a relatively new brand nam...

Re: My Flickr site

Congratulations Caporip. I look forward to more of your A900 shots. Harbours are very photogenic places.

Congratulations as well to the Doc and Sonalta who are now Viceroys - wow. I think this calls for big hats with a lot of white feathers?

Re: kingfisher

More great pictures Robbie - definately not too many - you can not post too many great shots like that. #2 is my favourite with the ruffled feathers. It will be interesting to hear your stories of how you get these great shots in your part of the world compared to Gustav in Holland.

Re: A900 Samples (links)

Double wow :o :o . I just recover from Gustav's Kingfishers and then I get to look through your landscape gallery Mark - really lovely shots. I can't wait to go back to Scotland. Welcome to the forum (Doc, you beat me to it! :D ).

What a brilliant Saturday this is turning out to be!

Re: kingfisher

Wow :o Kingfishers, vultures, dragon flies, landscapes. I am gob-smacked. Thank you to the Doc and Yildiz for the links. I am going to have to go and lie down in a dark room to recover from all those great shots. Great to have you on the forum Gustav, you have produced beautiful images.

Re: kingfisher

That is a really beautiful shot Gustav - thank you for sharing with us. Stunning colours and you have captured a great angle to show off the plummage across its wings. I expect you have some interesting stories about how you go about getting these shots that would be really interesting for us to hea...

Re: hello from holland

Welcome Gustav. It's been over 10 minutes and the Doc hasn't said anything yet (he's probably on a break) so I thought I would chip in a welcome :D (Your English seems fine to me.) Looking forward to some of your Kingfisher pictures, fantastic birds I agree. I guess you need to investigate their per...

Re: Garden Visitor

The second attempt was 800 pixels wide which seems to display better, and I re-cropped with a tiny bit more grass just to make sure I got the nose in. It looks ok in Photobucket at 1000 wide (the original). I'll just make sure I scale down a bit further in future for use here. I wonder if the Hedgeh...
