Yesterday I went to Bath with a Natural History panel for my ARPS (Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society) and I'm pleased to say that it was accepted!

Needless to say I'm chuffed and the looks on other peoples faces when they asked me wether I shot my panel with Canon or Nikon kit were priceless!

Here's my panel layout, will add the images separately when I can get some spare time!

Quite an achievement and clearly well deserved. What lens do you use? I have the DA*300 and TC but often struggle to get the focus right.

I'm not quite sure what this means, but well done and great shots. Always good to see people shocked that anything other than CaNikon cameras can produce pro-looking shots.

Well done Danny, the RPS doesn't lightly award an Associateship. I'm still trying to get my head round a panel for an 'A' after gaining an 'L' at Bath. I must say when I did that no one was in the least concerned about what gear I used.
