Re: Garden Visitor

Thank you all for your comments. I like yours as well Bonneville, he/she looks more bristley :D . I agree, Bossel, I have tried to give more nose room to #1. http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm62/Birma1/DSC04494copy2.jpg (Life is too short for sharpening lawn mower blades :wink: )

Garden Visitor

This little chap (or chapess) was wandering about the garden this lunchtime. Obviously too inexperienced to know it's meant to be a nocturnal creature! Had to rush out with the beercan for a couple of shots. The Hedgehog was quite unphased by me crawling around the lawn with it. Both shots F6.3, ISO...

Re: Birds of Prey

Great shots Brian, and very impressive with the big lens hand held. On your site I really like the barn owl tucking in to the black berries. Looks like you had a nice day for it as well. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Re: Food & Dishes

Another thought. Can we have pumpkin pie from Javelin, and a big chilli dog with extra mustard from Sonolta's next visit to the big game?

I'm drooling over my keyboard :D

Lovely pics Doc H and Yildiz. I like Doc's #2 best as a photo, but I would like to eat the Baklava the most :wink:

Re: Had a play with live view C & C please :)

Hi Steve - the live view let you get really close to the ground for an interesting angle. Not sure about the bokeh though? Is the teleconverter causing the lack of smoothness?

Re: Some Bugs :)

Hi Matt - I like #1 and #3 best. I like the composition of the bee buzzing off in to the distance, leaving the (lavendar?) blooms behind. The Snail "eyes" are spooky, but I like the picture none the less.

Re: Get rid of power cables crossing the photo

Hi wormy1 - I think you did a good job of removing the power lines. A good topic to raise as it has got some excellent replies. I'm sure a lot of us will be trying these methods now.

Re: Mirror lens

A link for all you moon shooters http://mirrorlens.blogspot.com/2007/09/stacking-to-moon-with-tamron-sp-5008.html . This site (also interesting for mirror reflex info. in general) mentions an interesting technique of "stacking". Anyone else tried this?

Re: A few from today - Southern France

Lovely shots Bossel. #1 is also my favourite, very atmospheric. A perfect afternoon; coffee, good food, beautiful scenery, and a camera :D .

Re: B&W Cat

Great shots Don and Zeb. There is so much detail in those shots I can feel my cat allergy coming on :wink: I'd like to put a vote in for Måns - I really like the pattern in his fur and the contrast of this with the yellow eyes.
