O God, I could be bounded in a nutshell...
In reply to Wormsmeat, 6 months ago

... and think myself a king of infinite space...

A hellebore.

Sleeping bee 1... sacked out on the flower in the shade, so still not warm enough to fly away.

Sleeping bee 2 right nearby.  I noticed both of these guys, but I did NOT notice the very large snake that was under my legs when I sat down to shoot these pictures... until it took off fast a few minutes into my shooting.  No, I did not get that picture.  No I did not have to change my pants.

Some tulips were opening in very interesting ways.

What about running two parallel threads? One for those whose username is A-L and a second for those where it's M-Z. Some people will get it wrong but a lot won't. People might actually notice if there are two running side by side (more or less)

someone just bought the Nik suite alert... anyway, the old harbour was full of grizzled and weathered life. Flaking paint and boats... another cliche I love to shoot!

Not just HDR practice, though - and it's not just the boats that look to have seen serious service over the years! Anyway, having a tonne of fun with the Nik suite but as ever with these things need to tame it for proper stuff. Anyway, shot these two whilst balancing a 5-yr-old on my shoulders. Not bad for an afternoon walk!

Tulips in Lisse
In reply to Wormsmeat, 6 months ago

I had a nice biking tour to the tulip fields in Lisse last weekend. The weather was pretty good and the blossom was already close to the peak at most places (it started very early this season) . Except for a few pictures that were taken with a mobile phone, I used an E-PL2 with three lenses - the 20/1.7, 14/2.5 and 45/1.8, mostly with a polarizer. Most of them were processed in LR with the Camera Vivid profile. If someone is interested in a similar tour to see this wonder, my route was: Hillegom -> Keukenhof -> Beach -> Schulpweg -> Hillegom, as can be seen here. It's approx. 30km.

Testing out my 14-42 II with a Raynox DCR-250 diopter. It makes the 14-42 ridiculously sharp and its almost as nice at this focal length as the Panasonic 35-100. There is no editing in this image, only processing for colour and contrast adjustments.

Cooper's or Sharp-shinned Hawk?
In reply to Wormsmeat, 6 months ago

Whilst "roadside shooting" today I came upon a classic fight:  Hawk fighting for a meal, Blue Jay fighting for its life.

Hawk was chasing the bedraggled Jay through a tag alder thicket. Wheeling and diving. Then the Jay hid low down and Hawk paused to surveil the area, giving me a chance to back the truck up a few yards to get these photos.

Then the bird shifted so I shot again anticipating a take-off, but got the back end of the bird:

Posterior view of hawk

Final adjustment of hawk before diving down...

I have gone to the Cornell site but am unsure of the ID of this hawk.

http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Coopers_Hawk/id

http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/sharp-shinned_hawk/id

Can anyone tell me, with reasons, what this bird is?

Many thanks,

Tom

PS  I think that the Jay escaped.  It waited for the Hawk to dive downwards off of its perch.  Then the Jay scooted out to the side and flew into a thick pine about 20 yards away.  As the Hawk flew up the the course of the thicket, the Jay used the pine as a shield and went 180º to the Hawk, escaping quietly.  I think.   Although I stayed in the location for several minutes no further commotion was witnessed.

We need to be careful with that. If folks start only giving feedback in their own version of the thread we will break up the community we've established. You can emphasize that they are free to give feedback in both, but will they? If you are scanning a thread anyway for feedback to the photos you posted, you are much more likely to see and comment on the other photos there.

We are only two weeks into doing this. I think that is the main problem. But, perhaps if some of us regulars made an effort to bump the Part 2 thread once it is started so people are more likely to see it in the list...

And of course, if some of us regulars post our photos in it instead of the Part 1 thread once its is established that would help to.

Even if only those who would have normally held off posting their photos until Part 1 filled up go looking for Part 2 we've still improved things from what they were.

If we end up establishing two separate groups we may keep the threads from filling up for the wrong reasons.

Unfortunately there are only a few hundred left of this old breed, notable for its egg-laying capacity of up to 200 per year. This duckling is four weeks old.

I think your choice of filters suits the subjects. NIK, like HDR, can be used very subtely too. You often see a touch of Dark Contrast on portraits in the Sunday Times these days. I'm guessing, but I have a decent NIK radar. I bought it on ebay.
