I am the walrus

This scene reminded me of the old Beatles song... I didn't get it why someone would swim close to these animals. A moment later the group panicked and jumped into the water all at once - looked rather dangerous to me.

Broomsticks and Unidentified Flying Objects
5

There’s all kinds of witchcraft going on in the forests of Denmark. Borrowed a high speed broomstick for a ride and collided almost with some Unidentified Flying Objects, which were taking off and crossing my path through the air.

Allappuzha

Allappuzha is known as the Venice of the East. I had the fortune to do an overnight houseboat trip on its backwaters recently. This little shrine on the water just happens to be a short walk from where our boat had moored for the night.

This is a photo from Aug 2017. I overexposed the white breast feathers a bit and did my best to save them. Hope I did okay, I'm not the best with post processing

Edit: I'm also wondering if I should've cropped closer. C&C welcome

Going through some older images, I found this rather strange one.

That is cool.

How did you do that?

A bit of winter fun
6

Took a few shots of my kids having fun on the slides. Wish there was a built-in ND filer in J5 like in some modern compacts to get some panning shots under bright sun (aren’t we getting too spoiled by technology these days? :-))

All J5 + 10-100 PD.

I adjust white balance manually in every shot and looks like I pulled too much to the warm side in this one comparing to other samples below. Also a bit dark as well...

It’s the old technique of zooming while the shutter is open.

You start zooming and the press the shutter button.

As for the flying objects - you have to be lucky, that there is something that crosses the frame diagonally. No tricks here.

I’m not sure if zooming with an electronic lens is healthy.
At least I stopped it enough down to avoid the wide apertures, that change during zooming.

For the processing I changed the WB to tungsten and applied a bit of split toning in DxO.

Here’s the situation safely back on earth, but still a bit dizzy

Re: Eye Contact

Still a wonderful shot! I wouldn't have noticed the wing had you not mentioned it.

Re: Eye Contact

Thank you. - The Sony rx10 iv might have got the full bird with its focal length of 600mm. But then, where would be the challenge if getting the shot were too easy...

Firat Use of Fill Flash
2

I just learned what fill flash is. Tagged my wife & son on a sunny mountain top. I noticed much saturation, so I figured I would see how far I could take it in post processing.

Feedback, tips, and education are appreciated.
