Re: Trainspotting

Great Shots of Roberts Bank - it's where all the coal comes and goes isnt it? The close up is good too - quite an old loco. A few of my own large collection below.

Re: Birds 2011

Looks like a Redpoll to me. They are just slightly smaller than a sparrow and flit quite fast. I love the first shot. Not the one above I mean the lovely little red finches on the previous page. Having looked them up I note you dont get Redpolls in Maryland. I've double checked and it is a bird cal...

Low Light indoor gig - how do I best shoot?

Hi All - I need some advice on low light shooting indoors. My son is doing a gig at a local venue and I want to take some shots, but when I have tried before my flash seems to wipe out any colour from the lights and doesnt capture the atmosphere.

Teleconverter.

Hi All. I'm thinking about getting a teleconverter to do wildlife and bird shots. I've got an A850 camera and my long lens is a Sigma 150-500mm. Any ideas as to which is the best to buy? Thanks.
