  • Commented on Just Fine for Wine in the Goblets challenge

    What a great idea and well executed. Just a shame your finger prints are on the right hand glass. What is the mesh? Chicken wire? Thanks, Neil.

  • How are you all doing with your 'S' photos? I'm going to try for my first one in a while. If anybody is interested I've just started up an outtakes thread for the last challenge 'In my garden'. ...
  • Yes I know its a bit late but I thought I'd post some of my other ideas for this challenge as I'd post processed a few. Please add your own outtakes if you have any. Neil. Our tadpole/toadpole and ...
  • Submitted a challenge entry Yes, his eyes really do look like this!
    I took a trip to our local aquatics shop where I was mesmerised by the eyes of this Porcupine Puffer fish. The lighting was not good and flash was banned, so it took me well over 100 attempts to get this photo! 

The blue iridescence on their corneas, is most likely a light control system which reflects some unwanted light therefore preventing too much light entering their eyes. 

Please have a look at this cute YouTube clip where a Porcupine Puffer is hand fed. The focus isn't very good on the eyes but I think you will get the idea.

  • Submitted a challenge entry The 'Wave'.
    This is known locally as ‘The Wave’ building. 
A series of six, 120 metre, silver mesh fabric, scalloped PVC facades span the width of the building. These are lit at night by a changing combination of 472 blue and 472 white lights creating a rippling light show along the fabric. At least thats how it's supposed to work. 
When I went to photograph the building all the lights were off so it looked dull silver. I eventually managed to find the man in charge and he explained that the control system for the lighting effects had broken. They are no longer switched on as they would have to be lit constantly and it would cost too much to run all night. 
When I told him I was hoping my photo of his building would be in an international competition, he very kindly switched them all on for me for 10 minutes :-). Thank you very much!
