Re: Fallow deer & fawn

Thanks Steve. Comments much appreciated. In years gone bye, what seems almost a lifetime ago, I used to write for several UK and US tropical fish magazines. It was just a hobby as I had a full time day job! There was a crazy 10 years plus after going digital, when I was doing ~40 features a year al...

Re: Laura's Shot of the week February 2019

Hi Laura.

I much enjoy overtly graphic representations of the everyday and your Tuscany silhouette, framing that fiery sky, is a lovely circular arrangement. Cool.

'Splash down' - Mute Swan, Beddington Park

Hi folks. A case of close-ish but no cigar. I caught sight of a pair of swans 'on finals' onto the boating lake at Beddington. I guess there were two or three seconds to acquire one in the frame, lock focus and grab three frames before it was all over. They landed just a little further away than was...

Shot of the week - Saturday 23 February 2019

Hi folks. It was a cracking day at Selsdon Wood yesterday, so the 'short' bird rig was used for a bit of 'peak of the action' photography with our Fox Red Labrador, Brook and Cocker Spaniel, Millie (both 'working types'), as they tussled for the ball. Here's the reduced res, Postimage version: https...

Hi folks.

You can do worse then...

...follow the advice of Dan Cadieux, one of the foremost bird photographers on God's big green and blue one and a very pleasant and humorous guy to correspond with. If wing positions keep you up at night, then try a dose of Dr Dan - http://www.dancadphotography.com/my-position-on-wing-position/ TTFN...

Re: 'The mad conductor'

Yes, I do find that the sharpness of the wing is out of place with the remainder of the shot and draws attention to the head not quite being in focus. Were it mine, I wouid rein back a bit, but accept that it is subjective. Hi Mike. Thanks for that. The head is in focus. Postimage has weirdly creat...

Cheers Paul. :)

Re: 'The mad conductor'

Well done on capturing such an unusual pose. Unfortunately, the bird's right wing has not done you any favours as that seems to be where the AF has settled. There is just about enough DOF to keep the eye within acceptable limits of sharpness, but stopping down a bit would not have gone amiss rather...
