In Car Entertainment... Caddy style..

Another quick capture, that depended upon more skill than I presently have available both in camera and in PP. from the shadow you can see that the sun was not providing ideal lighting thus I would be dependant on PP to try to "improve" on the original in which there was some detail in the sky/cloud...

PP foul up....

My recent post in Landscape and architecture of a medieval street was an unintended example of how to mess up a pic in an attempt to improve upon the original...

Glad you liked the pic Rod, I was happy to be able to capture some detail in the sky, my guess is that my pics taken at that location were not much more than a record given there was not much time or capability to control any situation, but then that is what many photographers have to deal with and ...

Re: somewhat old architecture/street scene.

Thanks guys.. David, perhaps not unusually, Medieval villages tend to have swarms of folk milling around so one has to wait a while.. I ain`t exactly the patient type. Jonny I should have done better with a scene like that . Rod you are indeed correct, I thought my laptop screen was showing it`s age...

Re: Bird photography FAIL

Jonny, I suspect you are correct about focus being on the feeder as I may have focused on that before the birds arrived..duh! I am a one frame at a time kinda guy, have yet to try to use multi frame captures other than by using the shutter button a frame at a time.. While the location of the feeders...

Bird photography FAIL

This is an old pic taken when I first bought my D800 and amongst my first attempts at bird photography with my then new kit, a 70-200 f2.8 Nikkor and it`s matching Nikon x2 extender which was new to the market at the time and reported as an upgrade on the extender it replaced. The location provided ...

Re: Fluffy Little Bird
