Re: [cough] More Puffins... [cough]

Wonderful little birds captured in great light and detail, and that you captured an image of one with a beak full of fish is an iconic Puffin behavioural image for me.. What`s more to want in puffin images..? Thanks for posting Matt.

Sail Training Ship MAYBE B&W

Thought I would post a pic of a vessel afloat this time as opposed to the more usual sad old hulks I have posted in the recent past.. Given the classic lines of Maybe, I thought it was maybe worth trying black and white..? (-: f11 1/160th Tamron 150-600 @ 320mm converted to B&W and fiddled around wi...

Re: Tony's Technique

Interesting stuff Rod, though I tend to take one pic at a time as opposed to rapid fire... may give it a go. It does seem that second hand cameras may well have much more wear on the shutter mechanisms than they did in the days of film.. hmm..?

Re: Fly

Works better for me Jonny. As for razor thin DOF..? Most macro images of flies tend to have only the eye or part thereof in focus while the rest of the insect looses detail... whereas your fly has loads of detail over a much wider area of it`s body and wings... Though I admit to knowing far too litt...

Re: Travel and kit considerations

Thanks guys.. Jonny, entirely logical suggestion as I do not intend to carry my whole kit around but will still need to carry it all on occasion along with her ladyships bags...As for the sharpness of Nikkor primes compared to Nikkor zooms... I have not a clue though I doubt my level of photographic...

Re: Fly

With macro I do not expect to see that level of DOF which makes the subject all the more interesting... Super lighting too, with great detail interesting subject matter, and as you typed it is a crop, I wonder if including the full shadow of the fly might add anything. Nice work Jonny.

Re: North Wicklow sunset

There is definite logic in your thinking Rod..(-: However weight aside I wonder if Thomas would use the F4 as opposed to the f2.8 if the f4 was not as sharp as the f2.8 at f8-f11 which as you type is his more normal aperture for his superb landscapes..

Travel and kit considerations

Looks like I will be heading to France for motor sport and a bit of touring. As I will be driving down I guess my normal weight restrictions may not apply and there should be space enough once my dear wife has packed all her essentials.. perhaps, thus the more usual travel issues may not apply. Howe...

Re: Pileated Woodpecker

Very detailed indeed though looks like the lighting was a tad harsh..? Which could be down to my lap top screen, as the brighter areas of the bird and logs seem to be verging on over exposure...? Wonderful bird looking forward to seeing more images of it Jonny.. Hope your new computer works out well...
