Re: Monday morning at Tewet tarn

First and last for me.

The third photo is likely to start me on a rant about billing airlines for their contrails spoiling your shots.

Re: Blurred swans...

The colour version works for me although I'd take a strip off the top and bottom to make it more letterbox format. I'd also clone out the diamond shaped highlight on the bank behind the birds and try...

Re: Bush fires today & snow tomorrow.

It's not unusual for us either but other than the occasional day in the summer this is the only extended period of summer temperatures we've had this year.

Re: A few from a north of Scotland tour.

The last one for me because of the monochrome sky.

I've searched for an Alaskan Brown Bear in the leaping Salmon photo until I'm cross eyed but I can't find one. :eek: Did you forget that all...

Re: Lens hood superior

It's actually designed as a lens hood. It's a Lenscoat Large Travel Hood and is designed to fold flat for packing.

The company does actually make a couple of useful products, the travel hoods and...

Re: West pier long exposure sunset

Other than that very nice.

Re: A trio from the North East

I actually prefer this version, it brings out the range of colour in the stone more. Parts of it look almost as if you've done selective mono conversion.

Everybody should switch to Sony.

There's hope for everyone who thinks equipment is important.

Re: The perfect kit at last

There's a range of padded inserts available these days. I've got a canvas contractors (builders) briefcase with a padded insert.

Another option is cheap neoprene pouches which is what I use for...

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

I recognize the moth but can't remember the common English name.

Edit. As soon as I posted I remembered.

Common Wave Moth. AKA Common White Wave.

Re: Communal Dragonfly, Butterfly and Insect photo thread

The moth is a Silver Y. You can probably work out how it got its common English name.

Re: 20 Things Most PHOTOGRAPHERS Get WRONG

Again, without watching the video I suspect that he's not told the full story. A prime lens will also change focal length as it focuses closer. Focal length and angle of view are only accurate when...

Re: August Photo Challenge - Life's a Beach

I don't think that's fair, Alf has plenty of bugs. :D And the odd shot of a bridge. :cool: IIRC it's a four shot pano of the Third Bridge. :rolleyes:

Re: The Forth Bridge in evening light

Shouldn't the Fourth Bridge be a four shot pano? That's why it's called that after all. :D

It would be tempting to scan the bridge with a scope so you could point out any bits they'd missed...

Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

Re: Parking.

That must be fake. They're on grass, their tyres will get dirty. :D

Edit. I suppose you could set them in place with a helicopter and put a square of astroturf under each tyre.
