Mordi: I know nothing of these cameras, and had to click on the link to see what it is.

Proves the art is in the photographer, not the camera.

Thanks Mordi

papa natas: Ha!!
Another superb image taken with a 7 years old little GREAT camera!!
This little fellow is cheap in price compared to today's prices. Then again its quality has nothing to be desired from today's standards. There was also a Minolta with the same shape back in the day.
It goes to prove that creativity follows no trendy consumerism.
Kudos to you, bro!!!

Thank you papa natas. I bought this camera because Panasonic compacts tend to have excellent focus and also because it was made robust to take seaside photos and I love photographing rock pool life and hence spare the Nikon! It also has a better macro feature than the lens on the Nikon which worked well for this close up shot.

barb_s: Congratulations. Color challenges are a challenge in themselves with no real theme - Love the focus on this as well! Nice job

Thanks so much Barb and also for hosting these great challenges.

It was taken on a trip to South America. I spotted this little fella in someone's doorway, so grabbed a couple of shots. So, not my dog.

In reply to:

bladerunner6: This is an absolutely fabulous shot. It is really a combination of a pet portrait and an action shot. And it definitely creates an emotional response. I showed it to my wife and she understood instantly why it won this challenge.

I am also impressed that you take great photos with any camera. And that you have way more challenge entries than postings. These things show that you are a great photographer that is serious about their craft.

Kudos to you in every way!

Thank you so much bladerunner6. Now I am embarrassed because this was more a lucky shot than anything else and also luckily fitted in with this challenge. (If you only knew the rubbish I also take - gulp!)

On photo too close for comfort in the Butter flies challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

christian jacob: Thank you!
I shot it at a zoo (http://www.zookrefeld.de/faq.html -- I noted that in my gallery, but somehow can't change it to public at the moment), so I guess it was just de-sensitized (there were hundreds of butterflies, and most of them were not shy, seems to be depending on the species).
Most of them didn't even notice the flash, only a big, blue one did.
And, as this is a 1360×1700 crop of a 16mp photo, I wasn't quite that close as it seems to be.
And for comfortable -- I think I tried for nearly 10 minutes to get as close as possible to this one (it felt longer), got cramps in my back and thought I was losing my eyesight (it was rather dark, and I had to manual focus -- more guess work and many tries). And the climate was tropical, while I was dressed for a german autumn...

Yep, thanks very much from me too!

Ditto! I don't like my 2.8 because it is fixed and doesn't zoom. This means I have to be on top of the creature. How did you manage to get so close without scaring it?
