Hi maybe yes - a little less than it is now would look a bit more balanced. 8)

Re: Leaves 2010

Hi Birma I like the black and white but the dome segments spoil it for me by getting in the way of the leaves. Eden project???

Re: Water Shots

Nice sea shot Geo67. I'd have liked to see a more definite foreground object, but the waves look great as do the wet rocks. The second one needs an ND Grad I feel for the sky and maybe a little more of the base of the water fall. These things I am learning from the guys above. Henry - love the wate...

Re: Water Shots

Hi Anna,: ) Two lovely shots indeed. The first is amazing with the water caught in motion in the foreground while the green reflections seem to be frozen in time in the distance. I would of like dto see more of the trees lining the water banks. The abrupt and rogue abstract of the rock formations i...

Nice image, ACIP. Where is that?

Henry, have you worked much on #2? I like that one a lot.



Thanks for the feedback. It is Moraine Lake in Alberta. It's a stunning colour and so clear.

Re: Flowers 2010

Sury - Hi - First one hand held - the second one was on a tripod, but as I said the lens was fairly new to me so I was playing around with it at the the time. I've got up to doing manual focus on macro shots that close now - cos as you said a mm movement can make a big difference. Love the sunflower...

Re: Water Shots

Winston - lovely shot. Really my kinda thing. Crystal clear water - looks just like you could go and stand in it on a hot day. I've attached one of mine I did - not as good as that maybe but it has got that clear water in the foreground. Hope you like it.

Re: Water Shots

I didn't mention the rule of thirds actually, I don't think you need to bother too much about rule of thirds in artistic type shots. The rule of thirds is a crock when it's use is obvious I think, I often see people using it as a matter of underlying principal no matter what, to the point of it bei...

On the other hand with all that toing and froing I might whack something on the boat.....

Re: Whale watching - what sort of lens?

For a trip like that, I'd invest in a second body--even an inexpensive one--so as to fit and have ready both lenses at once. For a one-lens solution, however, I'd go with the longer lens. There's a lot more water farther away from the boat than right next to it. (You're not going to leave one of th...
