I'm quite happy with this one; very, very slowly beginning to work out the camera. It's funny how one good shot makes me realise just how much I have to learn.

Nice, KW. I would probably have turned the camera a bit so you didn't have the car in the background. I think cropping out a little bit of foreground, some of the empty space on the right and the car from the background could improve this shot.

just found this interesting spider at work, crappy photo taken with my phone...



-ed- cheers Nismo, was thinking something like that cause I saw one of them on that Bug Wars show recently, but hadn't been able to confirm it.

so I posted this pic on fb because someone had posted a pic of me taking this photo. I'm ok with it, don't think it's anything that special, but by gum lots of other people have liked it. I'm happy with the composition, and how it's posed but that's about it...


^crappy fb version cause that's all I've uploaded


thanks Nismo, the only post processing I did was increase the sharpness a little, and it was an overcast day

there's some ca (green) in your bokeh balls down the bottom & top. could do with a bit of contrast or a push on the highlights but otherwise not bad.

maybe a bit of brightness around its eye to give the face some pop. it's a bit dark & flat as it is now

Not as good as some of the stuff in here, but I was proud of them
The camera hasn't been out in a while.

that's very impressive, I've some idea how hard it is to get a bird in flight and the details in the wing feathers there is awesome

Not sure what type of creature is inside this shell, end to end it's a bit under 30cm long, was moving up in a crack between two boulders.

For bird photography should I be using evaluative metering generally? I'm using single spot AF mostly if I'm not manually focusing. TIA

^I'd think so long as there isn't a huge bright/dark contrast in the shot it'd work

a couple from a recent camping trip (should have taken a photo of the leech that attacked me but didn't think of that at the time)




wondering if KW can name this one




did a trip to Underwater World yesterday






that's the biggest seal they have, around 230 kg

Been playing with single metering too but still a WIP!

That's an Emerald Dove at best guess

Nice shots!
