Re: September.....

Keith.
Thanks for your kind comment. I don't really do enough macro type shots to justify a 105 but the 70-300 with it's close focus capability gives what for me is a resonable compromise and also gives me a good lightweight alternative longer focal length lens for those occasions when the Bigma is just too big and heavy to cart around.

Pete.
Thanks for your kind comment too, No1 is the one I was most pleased with.
I also got some shots yesterday of Charlie ( Charlotte ) one of our reserve wardens giving our new wildflower meadow its first mowing. Not up to your standards for such things. However as the shots were rather badly exposed I used some wierd curves adjustments ( in GIMP ) based on your recent tips and got something passable from them. Thanks for the tips which made me think about what I was doing.









Regards
