  • Created discussions From the waterfront II
    The PowerShot s110 is a really nice camera. I Think... :-) Small, capable and nice to handle when you are used to DSLRs. Formidable close up - and nice on all other distances. All pictures here ...
  • Created discussions From the waterfront
    Aalborg, Denmark, the town where I work ( and used to live in..) is undergoing a lot of changes these days. One of the most significant changes takes place at the waterfront. Where there used to ...
  • Thank you, both of you - i'm just slightly embarrassed that I didn't look it up myself. :-| Now at least I know that they're called dorsal ocelli .. and part of the theories behind their function. ...
  • Created discussions The eyes of the Hoverfly
    As we move into the autum the hoverflies enjoys the last of our oregano flowers. This is the same fly - a Swomp Hoverfly or Helophilus pendulus. Taking these pictures I was just wondering: What ...
  • Congratulation to the winners - and thanks for the HM :-) Great examples of what our Canons are able to do - with the right folks' behind them ;-)
  • Replied in Two from Denmark
    The first one is a composite from Aalborg, Denmark of the local Utzon Center - a shot made in the early morning with the back to the rising sun. Not quite water enough in the mist to create a real ...
  • Thanks ! Noting special about the flash setup - normally I just use my trusty 'old' Speedlite 430 EXII. Sometimes I use it with a diffuser, but not this time though.
  • Absolutely right! Following shot earned me a 100$ price in bird seeds ( talk about ironic ! ). OK, the nifty fifty was stopped down a bit, but...
  • Oh, I kind of forgot my EF 100mm f 2.8 macro (non L). I think it's absolutely OK on cropped sensors - like the ones I'm using on my t3i/600D and SL1/100D. Following shots were made this afternoon: ...
  • Replied in My new PS s110
    I think you are absolutely right about that. My normal workflow will normally consist of a conversion in LR 4 - or if it has to be fast and to the point: DPP. If need be I use PSE for details ...
  • My best non L must be the EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS. Very nice on a cropped sensor cam like the t3i/600D or the sl1/100D  (the ones I use :-) )
  • Created photos My new PS s110
    I just bought a PowerShot s110. Normally I use either an EOS 600D/t3i or an EOS 100D/SL1 - but I've long felt the need to have a portable camera I can have with me all ways. Right now the price of ...
  • Sometimes I wonder if it's really worth the trouble going for the 'Super Moons'. I mean, they are only supposed to be about 14% larger/brighter than your average full moon. Then again: When I see a ...
  • And suddenly, there among the spice herbs, it happens: Beauty and The beast ... Pleeeease ....

    Home - early January
  • Replied in Greek flowers
    Two roses from a trip to Greece in May. The first one a civilized one shot at the hotel - and the other one a wild rose .. with a 'bonus' fly :-)

    Sunset seen in the opposite direction - towards the East
  • Replied in Bees and flowers
    Missing parts of the wings make you wonder how it's able to fly at all  :-) All shots were made with handheld Canon SL1/100D and EF 100mm, f 2.8 macro.
  • Created discussions Worn butterflies
    Lately I've had a smaller invasion of Peacock Butterflies in my garden. It's quite a beautiful 'bird' - and easy to take portraits of as it willingly shows its' wings with the ' camouflage eyes'. S ...
