This is a shot of my daughter and her son, who came over from Spain for the wife’s birthday. Impromptu shot taken in the kitchen while I was on my way to the booze tent

Marie is one of those women who just comes alive in front of a camera. Very easy job to get a decent photograph of her. They both live in Oz and have been visiting for a couple of weeks. She is a professional dancer and does sometimes get into the studio for promotional work.
I was toying with the idea of organising a shoot but she is on holiday, so had to make do with holiday type photos.

Thanks Paul, lush is the right word. I got the exposure wrong as you do but decided to keep this shot as it was the more interesting of the series.

The other shot is the bottom part of a can of `Air Duster`. The bit in shot measures around 30mm x 20mm and was a off the cuff shot to check that I had put the adaptor lenses’ back correctly in the mount adaptor.

I sometimes feel that you need a camera around your neck 24/7 as some of the out of the blue shots can be the best you will ever take.

I had a Peregrine make a pass at a sparrow that was feeding in the garden. The bird jumped off the fence and turned sideways talons out as the bird flew across the garden. All this took place 5 feet from the window I was looking out of. Such is the ones that got away. Bit like big carp when you think about it.

Sundance - Very moody mate - lovely B&W

60sRules - That last one looks lush. The one before is odd to judge without a reference but is probably very impressive!


Came back from shopping earlier and looked out the back window to see a dark shape down the end of the garden.
She had obviously just made her kill, a Blackbird, and was "mantling" her prey. By the time I'd grabbed the camera she had taken it to the darkest corner by the back gate and was setting about dismantling it, feathers everywhere!
She stayed there plucking and eating it for over 40 minutes.

The only view was through the bathroom window upstairs which I gingerly prised open without disturbing her.

I could barely get 1/400 @ ISO 1600 at the start and it got darker quickly, but a few (of the 200+ fired!!) shots should come out ok with a bit of PS torture!
Tried a few @ ISO 3200 but even Topaz couldn't rescue the noise sufficiently.

To the naked eye this is solid colour. Method used, lens set to 1/1 macro and then on a solid base the camera is moved towards the object for focusing. Cuts out tripod and manual focusing problems

Thanks guys Much better out there though.

Took this of the back garden at 4am this morning, the ambient lighting from the street out front, I thought, made a really nice sepia glow to the scene.
Glad I was up half the night coughing my lungs up with a cold or I'd have missed it!

500D/EFS 18-55
Manual Mode.
30' @ F22 ISO 200 manual focus.
Only sharpened a little in PS nothing else.

Totally agree with Dave on this. If you want to have a look at a truly naff web site check out David Bailey’s. As one of the worlds greatest living photographer you would have thought he could have done better

Very nice moon shot Dave - never been able to get a decent one myself.

Here's a Kessie I took in Dahab last week. Great to have some proper light for a week
