Our local Roe Deer

They live in the wood on the other side of the lane from our house, except when they eat my wife's flowers!

Re: Sgurr an Airgid

A wonderful set of images of a breathtaking part of the world. I particularly like no 3.

Re: Indian Wedding

These are fantastic pictures. I've always loved the vibrancy and colour of India on my all too brief visits there. It's warming to see it over here as well. A great memory of what was obviously a...

Re: Back button focus with the 50-200

Mauro

I've got the BBF assigned to the Fn 1 button at the moment, but I am not sure that this is the most ergonomic option for me (better than the AEL button, though). I have some experimenting...

Back button focus with the 50-200

I am very much obliged to Tony who suggested using back button focus with the 50-200. First try this morning allowed me to capture this, which I would never have managed otherwise (from about 30m -...

Re: comparing the 75-300mk2 with panny 35-100 on the EM-1 when shooting House Martins

I think that is why I am using my old 50-200 more compared to my 75-300 II. At 3.5 at the long end it allows significantly more light in, which seems to help. On the other hand, it often needs a...

Re: Return to Toddington

These are great. They really tell a story. I like your processing as well, which gives them a vintage colour look. Thanks for sharing these.

Black and White from Barnard Castle

We were away for a long weekend in Barnard Castle - our first time there and my first time with my new 12-40 for the E-M1. I didn't take many photos, but here are a couple in B&W:

Re: Thoughts on this shot would be much appreciated

Well, that just shows how personal image interpretation is.

For my taste (emphasis added), I found the 'blackness' right at the bottom a bit too dominating. I 'got' the intention - i.e. to lead...

Thought provoking

I like reading Kirk Tuck's blog. If you haven't seen this post http://ripecamera.blogspot.co.nz/2014/03/all-cameras-are-better-than-you-are.html written by him, I think it is well worth the read. ...

Re: Thoughts on this shot would be much appreciated

I like this a lot. Is it looking towards the Isle of May?

The one comment that I have is that the foreground seems slightly out of balance with the remainder of the image (too dark). Maybe just...

Re: Food Riot

I would say about 65-35 in favour of the House Sparrow this winter.

Re: The Hover Chaffinch

Hi Roger,

I used C-AF hand held on my 1st generation 50-200. That said, I took the precaution of pre focusing on the feeder. If I remember properly the lens prefers to be focused slightly beyond...

Great images. Liathach is a monster of a mountain, but going up it the weather we have been having is a proper expedition.

Re: My free HLD-7 has arrived

I hate to say this, but my third free set of HLD-7/MMF-3 has just been delivered. There must be some seriously crossed wires in Germany.

I have fessed up to Olympus Support; so, I'll see what...

Re: Some birds of prey with the 75-300 (not CAF)

Sorry to have come to this thread rather late.

I have been trying for the last couple of days to take BIF pictures using the OM-D.

Waterborne 'street' photography
