Very nice. I don't know how you spot them... More significantly how you keep them from flying away.

Excellent grouping as usual John, but I especially like the first with the dew on the wings. I've never gone out early for this type of shot. Was this butterfly asleep?

Thanks Michael, it was already awake when i first spotted it, was fidgeting around a little.
Thanks everyone for the kind comments, much appreciated
Another great series of night captures Michael, excellent LE work.
Just making sure no one rubs her shoulder......
Thought about this but I don't get it
It was because of the way she was occupying the bench, was making sure no one could sit close to her. In the UK, "rubbing shoulders" is a saying for getting close to someone

I like the last one. It doesn't look that stormy. What caused the splash?
My apologies that I forgot to change the title. I just noticed it.
Anyway, the reason for the big splash is that the wind was extremely high, which on such a shallow lake as Erie causes high waves, though by looking at that part of the cove you wouldn't think so, but when looking out onto the water you could see the boats having problems with the waves. I had trouble holding still in all my shots on that day. AND when I went to look at my pictures I had a bunch of water spots on my lens. :/
If it pleases you then to hell what everyone else thinks!
Here are the best of the bunch from what was generally a crummy photo shoot this morning. I have done considerable analysis on what lead to the problems and determined conclusively that I have no talent whatsoever.
The first one was taken at f13 primarily because I am a ding bat. I post it so you can tell me what else is wrong with it.
Mother Nature is not cooperating tonight so I plan to try again tomorrow morning instead. You can look forward to more lousy photos posted by me in Part 2 of this thread tomorrow.
I am sure you are all waiting with baited breath.
The photo opportunity that lead to these two is easily repeatable so if you make suggestions I can go back and screw up less egregiously another time.
…Important to keep this thread going as more people now read it than the UK Sunday Times, New York Times and Cosmopoloitan magazine combined*.
* I made this up.
And now you have launched ANOTHER "internet statistic". LOL.
Mind you, given the fact that print circulations are falling off a cliff, this new "statistic" could well be true in a couple of years!
Part 2 is now being launched before Part 1 is finished.
- This allows people to continue to post comments about existing pics in Part 1
- It will prevents the tail-enders on Part 1 getting no comments at all.
- Feel free to continue to post COMMENTS AND REPLIES to PART 1 but...
- Now PART 2 has been launched, post all new PHOTOGRAPHS there.
Part 2 found here:-
These photos are taken at the Berlin Jewish Memorial. It's an extraordinary place, 5 acres of varying concrete blocks which according to architect Peter Eisenman "represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason".
As a piece of art that humans can interact with, it's breathtaking. As a memorial to the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, it's chilling.
Eisenman has done a great job -- building a model of any major city today, a memorial to the idiocy of the richer end of humankind.
As a memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe -- well, I see nothing in it.
Aww - the old fella looks like he's struggling. Interesting stuff.
My only photo this week - taken with my iphone and an unsteady hand. I like it nonetheless.
Edit: It's OK - I'm not planning to give up the day job!
Not a selfie then?
I think maybe yes. The first has great colour.
Nice. I love HDR.
The first is great fun - cool.
I love old boats - great set.
Looks an intelligent little beast.
Her first is an excellent shot.
