Re: Sony 200-600

Congrats Matt! Now that's a lens I'd feel comfortable shooting those God-awful bugs you've been shooting. Yup, I'd get that minimum focusing distance down pat, locate one of those ugly buggers, adjust it to one focal plane with my boot and get everything in focus 8-) . Your bugs may take a back seat...

Re: Pseudocreobotra wahlbergi (3rd instar)

I understand what you're going through. They don't stay still all of the time too. I know for bees and flies, it took a lot of time to figure out which part of the insect I wanted in focus, what angle was best, what body position was best and how different settings impacted things. The shiny parts a...

Re: Pseudocreobotra wahlbergi (3rd instar)

Matt, I am going to give specific CC on this one. The left arm that is towards the camera is blurry; it strikes me right away and you may want to work on the angle. Second is the reflection/glare in the top part of the left arm/arms; it is difficult to tell if they are translucent or what. The front...

Nice photo, but that thing is nasty looking.

Re: Unscheduled Offroad Excursion

Sorry to see that Rod; I hope the X5 was OK. As the signs say in China - Stay on road. Was it a distraction, an avoidance or a planned incident? Get yourselves on of those lift kits and some big tires for that sort of stuff. Or, better yet, get yourself a two-wheeled screamer to zip through that stu...

Re: Another fail with some payback..?

That's a very pretty shot Gedee. I like it a lot! Perhaps some post could fix the colors a bit, but it's nice.

Re: Lough Dan January 2019

I like this one much better. It's not only brighter, the trail that connects the buildings looks like something I'd like to walk. The other photo doesn't draw me in as much. I like the out-of-focus foreground because my focus is pulled towards the buildings and the trail. I am no great landscape cri...

Re: Sept 8th at the Camp

Thanks fellas! Gedee: for me, it's not really about encouragement; it's about sharing what I see with viewers. Both you and Rod have been with me from the beginning on the other forum. I still remember the first pick I posted and the CC that resulted from it; it was a squirrel. I also remember all o...
