Thanks for this. Bought one of these and was even cheaper with Ebay's 8% discount. Had been thinking of selling my Q as I'm not enamoured with with the lack of a viewfinder but, it's light, very...

From the Bedroom window

If your cherries are like my cherries they won't last 5 minutes when the blackbirds start and the pigeons finish them. That last one is rather nice.

First Steps for Mum (or Dad?)...

Some birds don't take kindly to predation. A pair of carrion crows recently downed a magpie that had been caught near their nest. They pecked it to death in the middle of the road amid a tremendous...

You'd never guess

It's actually a macro shot of my Tacoma's grill. Having owned the truck a few months only, I recently noticed the embedded colors. The diagonal strip is the only portion in focus on the previous ph...

Yes, Nigel. The second one needed (even) more diffusion. The stacking seems to have had an (even) more adverse effect on the highlights than usual. Note to self: Must try harder not to burn t...

Flower shot with the M* 300mm f4

The strong sunlight directly at my right meant that it was a foggy blur (I wear glasses). Lovely picture, well worth fighting through adversity! Have you tried a right-angle finder in those situ...

Cardiff Castle, Bute House

I'll agree with most of the above: very nice work in 1 & 4. May I add (sorry if I'm wrong though), they seem to have been thought out a bit more than the rest (either at time of capture or in PP).

A few more flowers

Very nice Gareth, soft-feeling yet well-detailed. First look had me thinking of Anne Geddes... I may have a preference for the monochrome, would love to see it framed the same as the others.
