  • Thanks for looking.  I agree with the cropping.  I quite like the 3rd one actually.  I have just viewed it with and think it might work better cropped to landscape.
  • Thanks for looking.  I have Lightroom 3.6 and have recently found a free plugin called Perfect effects4 so I am experimenting with the layers in that.  The combination of HDR natural plus amazing...
  • Created discussions Dragons overdone?
    I have tried different pp with these images.   Overdone?
  • I realise this an old thread about weather sealing and most have commented on the problem of humidity.  I am concerned about how extreme heat could affect a lens.  For example it was about 33 deg's...

    Beeauty! I am surprised that a shutter speed of 1/180th would be enough to stop the motion of the bee. I really must learn to use flash. It`s a must for capturing detail in this kind of image.

  • Created discussions A Touch of Snow

  • It all boils down to what you want to shoot.  I have the Da*200 and love it.  I agree with most of the review quoted above but I would not choose this lens for shooting anything that moves faster...

  • Thanks for looking.  I have applied a bit more sharpening than I normally do.  Perhaps I have not been applying enough when downsizing images for  the web and need to remember to do this in the...
  • Created discussions Bird on a fountain
    A switched off fountain in the local park. I am not sure but I think it is a cormorant A 100% crop taken with the da*200

  • No problem and thank you for your very kind words.
