Re: Skye 2020

Thought I would re-visit this post and suggest a rough date for next year. How about Jan/Feb? This would avoid the midges and is also sociable for sunrise (around 08:45) & sunset times (around 16:30). I appreciate it would be a very cold time of the year but given Skye's location and general wea...

Re: Master of Photography 2019

Have watched the previous 3 series because I thought I would get someone out of it but it always felt a bit of a pointless exercise. Having read these comments I will decline this series and suspect I wont be worse of for it. Having a "master of photography" is pointless really as no one i...

Re: Pebbles, sea & sky

Thanks for the critique. Im thinking I may remove the belongings (think it was a pushchair and dog as well) and maybe leave the man on his own? The whole negative space was what originally attracted me but feel a human element is still needed for scale. I think it might be that you have two pictures...

Re: Staircase

Thanks for the comments Peter. I had originally darkened the whole of the sign and gangway but felt the person was walking into a black hole! But agree just removing the sign would help. The right staircase is practically blown out as well which unbalances the shot somewhat. It was processed using S...

Staircase

Recent shot but once again not sure if its got the interest for the viewer. I did stay around for a while waiting for people to walk up and down and having a single person seemed the best option.

A Cats Dream

Experimented with one of the kids toys. Personally I think its a bit of a marmite shot and have a judges voice in my head struggling to understand it :o

Pebbles, sea & sky

Took this image 2 years ago and Im still not sure if I like it! Was a grab shot on my phone, not sure if its competition worthy, what is everyone's thoughts?

Re: Skye 2020

As a previous visitor to Skye I can highly recommend a visit. Its a very dramatic island for photography and the conditions change very quickly. We spent a few days touring around and sleeping in a campervan. Our camp site was quite exposed near a loch and the owner secured the campervan with chains...

Nope just turn up and put your bag through a scanner, walk through an arch and then you're guided to the lift.

Re: Bird photography day out April 2019

Happy to organise the trip! Thanks to both David & Mike for the lens loans. I took around 650 shots and after a brutal cull of images (including all those empty branch shots as I was too slow!) Ive kept around 20% which I think is a respectable haul from the day, albeit with many duplicates. For...
