Re: Playing with PRO capture...

A fine effort Walti. I bet you had twitchy fingers at the end of that session. :)

Re: Who is this ?

I don't use the Olympus strap because I am worried that the Canon and Nikon big boys might notice it and call me names and give me 'chinese burns'. :D

Re: Affinity Photo 1.7 beta

I started using the beta version of Affinity Photo shortly after it was released and it runs well on my computer. My only complaint is that it seems as if nearly every time I launch it there is an...

Re: Sedge Warbler in the Reeds

Hi Mark. No, not from my kitchen window. :) I was out in the open and not in a hide. This one was an extremely confiding bird. He was obviously just interested in finding a mate and, although he was...

Sedge Warbler in the Reeds

This showy Sedge Warbler put on a fine display for me as it moved through the reeds, singing continually. For me it is the sound of summer.

Re: Encounter with a Brown Hare

Thank you for your contribution Tord. All the shots were taken at f5.6, which is the maximum aperture with the MC-14 attached. The Hare was about 15 metres away in the first three shots but probably...

Re: Babs's

Ah, I see what you did there. :)

The strange thing is, we weren't discussing Dave's use of the apostrophe but that of the cafe owner and we weren't even criticising her but complimenting her on...

Re: Any Gardeners Here?

We had a Cordyline in the garden and in about 12 years it grew from a cute plant to a 10 feet tall tree. It had to go to make way for a summerhouse and it was hard work to remove it.

I cut off the...

Re: Encounter with a Brown Hare

Many thanks for the kind comments and 'likes'.

With regard to the bokeh of the 300mm f4, it definitely tends to be a problem if there is grass close behind the subject. I suppose the angular,...

Encounter with a Brown Hare

We were walking at Carlton Marshes the other day when we suddenly spotted a Brown Hare sitting on the path in front of us. I took a few quick shots, expecting it to run away, but was taken by...

Re: Babs's

I have to concede you are correct Paul. If only she had been considerate enough to call it Barbara's it would have been much simpler :)

Wink Re: Babs's

On the assumption that it is an eating establishment run by Babs, I think that either Babs' or Babs's is acceptable. I am sure this discussion is exactly what Dave had in mind when he posted the...
