Re: Birr Castle CO. Ofally

Interesting building, is the wall in the foreground a "Ha Ha" ? Is there a slight smuge in the window on the lower part of the building right of centre..? Nice one Rod :)

Re: A Curious Fawn

I guess mowing the trails and fields makes for more photographic opportunities too...(-: You at least have an old Fergie to help do the job, whereas I struggle to push my mower around the garden.. The hawks and buzzard populations around the UK have suffered over the years due to rogues who poison t...

Nikon Z6 and Z7 Mirror-less

I see Tony has brought out a vid to cover the specs on both cameras with comparisons against their Sony counterparts, interesting though the lack of dual card slots seems quite an issue and perhaps not only for professionals..? Quite by Chance, Thomas Heaton`s latest vid is one where he was looking ...

Re: UK Buzzard.

Thanks again guys.... OK Jonny, I had a go at making it POP... and used a series of adjustment layers, though perhaps in the process made it too colourful..? I have as yet to discover the way to be more selective by way of applying adjustments, something I am determined to have a go at.. Rod I have ...

Re: UK Buzzard.

Thanks Rod. the background appearance was down to the lens being wide opened and at 600mm (hyper-focal range..?) and as the PP was not done in a selective manner (I have yet to learn that) whatever was applied in a bid to improve the subject affected the backdrop to some degree I guess.. So I reduce...

UK Buzzard.

I have seen a few Buzzards in my area over the years though getting close is difficult, fortunately this one landed in a position that was close enough to capture with my 600mm though not in an ideal location.... well you cant have everything..? ;) So I gave it a go. Hand held VC on f6.3 (wide open)...

Re: Pair of Woodpeckers.

Re: Same Harris hawk

Interesting action to see a full wing spread so close to the ground, you get points for the shadow and that it is separated from the bird it`s self... though the grass seems a bit of a distraction, have no idea of the possibilities of isolating the bird in that situation and in camera though given y...
