Re: Now Let Loose the Togs of War!

A TV Series, 1986, The Comedy Company, before your time maybe. "Uncle Arthur" was just one segment of the show. "The Dobey Bros" was another funny act about two dogs.

Re: Now Let Loose the Togs of War!

Well I did get both M1 and M5 re-strapped, unconventionally with the keeper above the buckle to secure the ends. At Sunday's Black Dog Bike ride, I had both cams slung around my neck looking 'real...

Mark, I appreciate your tweak very much, thank you. Unfortunately I have already sent the whole set to the Coordinator.

Re: A few from the lakes

I haven't seen your thistle shot before. The low camera angle illustrates well what I was trying to say.

Re: A few from the lakes

Chris, seeing as you welcome comments good or bad, as I see it the millennium stone being an unnatural element of the composition conflicts with the natural beauty of the lake. Focussing solely on...

Re: The Black Dog Ride (image heavy)

Re: The Black Dog Ride (image heavy)

Why indeed, exactly. Motor cycles and car racing were never my scene. I lost DR on both EM1.2 and EM1.2, both slung around my neck with 12-60mm SWD, and 40-150mm respectively.
In A mode I set iso...

Re: Bathtime

Re: Five Compositions

John, you are quite right about the signage, shot from either side with camera handheld at an angle for dynamic effect.
Maybe not the best example of diagonal composition, but the best I could...

Re: Five Compositions
