  • Are they intended as neck straps or shoulder straps? Plus I can't see from the image how the connections at the right end work. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.co ...
  • Replied in Bugs
    I have yet to own a proper macro lens. I have tried to take insect macros with Kenko extension tubes but the results were not as good as your images above and trying to get acceptable depth of ...
  • Replied in Bugs
    Nice pics, my favourites are the second of the fly and the last one which is very nice. You don't quite have the dof for the fly though only its front end is in focus but I like it as a shot. Is ...
  • Replied in Cute!
    Very nice. I am guessing those are lemurs? Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • Replied in Colorful bird
    Handsome looking bird, do you know what it is called? shame the feet are not quite in the second shot. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • Replied in C&C: B&W shots
    You had some great clouds there. The first image is my favourite. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • I like 1 and 3 but no 3 is my favourite, because of its shape colour and content. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • The way I see it is, if you had it once you can have it again. Practice makes perfect and all that. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • I only use Pec Pads & Eclipse solution to wet clean my sensor .. Never had an issue with bits, seems to leave the sensor clean as new. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpre ...
  • I used to have a car like that .. then I bought one with suspension :-) In answer, no I doubt any harm will come to a camera in a modern car. I often keep mine in the boot where there is less ...
  • I think it is quite charming, though it ends very abruptly and I hadn't enough time to realise the date. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • The camera manufacturers are committed to providing an upgrade path so that they can sell us new kit every few years. I expect they will manage to find persuasive reasons to upgrade and that their ...
  • I can almost feel the cold from the images. Very nice pictures and it looks like you properly tested the weather resistance of your cameras. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed my visit. Mark_A A thread ...
  • I was on a critique site for websites, you put a website you had created on there and people critiqued it. It worked for a while but there were issues. I eventually stopped using it. Good luck with it.
  • This first one has the colouring of a Bittern, quite a rare bird in the UK, likes reed beds. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57201471
  • Hi Alex, I viewed both of them. In the first there is a moment where another soundtrack bursts in at a much higher volume which put me off. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset pictures! http://www ...
  • Used DSLRs are very good value! I know this because I have been considering buying one used myself and have been impressed with what is on offer. Worth considering a used DSLR and a used lens, I ...
  • It is a nice photo, but definitely achievable in digital to my mind. Both eyes are in focus but it has a shallow dof meaning that much of the hair is blurry. It looks lit from top left which could ...
  • Hi Mark, thanks for the link to your blog. I am not surprised it took some months to get that right, things like that don't happen by chance! Interesting also that you didn't use the photographers ...
  • Nice image. In that image the buildings are also bathed in the same light that is on the moon. In the OP image there is none of that which made me think fake. Mark_A A thread for Sunrise & Sunset ...
