Re: Do you like heavily modified images?

I really like Robbie's pictiure of the happy couple - great effect. I'd far rather something like that on the wall than an ordinary wedding photograph

Great pictures as well Sonolta - the bicycles is also my favourite, a long with th leaf details.

Re: Do you like heavily modified images?

I like it Rogprov. A really interesting effect - almost like leather. Like the Doc I'm not sure about the dark space. How do you do it?

Re: Touch of Africa

Nice shots Robbie - the Water Buffalo looks concerning enough. There was an amazing video doing the rounds on YouTube recently of a full scale battle between a pride of lions and a herd of buffalo at a watering hole. Some crocs joined in at some point. All while a safari tour passed by. That would h...

Re: Regular feature / challenge?

Ok. I recommend more of that German beer to aid the thinking :wink: I was quite amused by the picture from Papa Joe's - a bar full of veteran journalists, did they have to order in extra supplies?

Regular feature / challenge?

Hi David,

Was there some suggestion of a regular feature / challenge for the forum recently? I seem to remember something about after Photokina, but perhaps there is still a lot going on with A900 tests / debates.

Re: Trail riders.

Welcome. Great shots Bodak. I'm not sure I would have been able to tell the first was a composite so the processing must be effective! Lovely portrait. Looking forward to more pictures.

Re: DK! Post Some IS0 1600-6400 a900 Samples Soon!

A beer photo thread - that is something I could really get in to :D May be a few single malts later on as a night cap? Tonight I'm going to the monthly "Dad's night out" for our "baby-group" (NCT). It's at an Austrian theme bar. Great beer, lovely schnapps, but a guaranteed bad h...

Re: The Malvern Hills

Hi Yiildiz,

The grass is especially green this year. Normally it would be brown from a dry(er) summer, but this year (like the last) has been very wet. More lawn mowing and hedge trimming means less photo taking :(

Perhaps Matilda will take me out this afternoon if the sun is still shining :D

Re: The Malvern Hills

Thankyou all for your comments. Lovely pictures! Why am I suddenly thinking about Watership Down? I think Hazel, Fiver, Bigwig and friends would have been quite happy; there are certianly lots of their bunny buddies living there at the moment. Nice photos and quite familiar territory for me - in fac...

For all you mushroom lovers ... on the hills there were some huge fungi of some description.

The Malvern Hills

The Malverns are the main feature to the west of Worcester where I live. Here are some pictures from today when the family went for a short walk and picnic on the hills. First some views from the hills over the countryside. All taken with Tamron 17-50/2.8. http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm62/Bir...

Re: Autumn is coming...

Great photos - I particularly like 1, 3 and 5. I don't understand the theory but the subject in half of the frame with the other half falling off in to oof looks really good. 5 is especially intriguing - I would never have thought of shooting just the ground and trunks, but I really like it. Nice ca...

Re: Autumn is coming...

Hi Zeb, Its a small wood, near where I live in Worcester, at the edge of the town. It's called Nunnery Wood although I don't think there have been Nuns there for a very long time :) . Mostly dog walkers and joggers now. It has pram friendly trails which are ideal at the moment for my 6 month old dau...

Re: Autumn is coming...

Great pics Zeb, made me go out to the woods today. There are early signs of autumn here in England, but not the great reds and browns yet as you had in yours. A quick pic to remind us of the green wood before it changes. Min 35-70/4 1/50 F13 ISO800 @35mm http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm62/Birma...
