    Thanks Neil. I've been swapping that night shot on and off my desktop all year.

    The worst photo I've ever taken!

    Trying to get a photo of my new lorry and it keeps getting dirty, (at £30 a time to wash it you don't do it every day) so as soon as it was clean this week I got the camera out. Here are the excuses: It was the G7X Mk.II not the Fujis. All I had to light the shot with was a couple of...

    Automotive location advice needed. South Yorkshire.

    Could be a plan. I take it it's as "simple" as soften/blur tool carefully applied in the obvious direction? Of course being a Fuji user now I can tripod and snap from the drivers seat on any industrial estate that takes my fancy. WiFi camera control is a godsend at times. On a side note, did...

    I would love to but I'm the only one insured to drive the truck!

    Automotive location advice needed. South Yorkshire.

    Hi all, Six months ago I put an artic on the road and have spent the past six months looking desperately for decent locations for photography. I've found a couple but not very many. Now its time for a new lorry, (the last one was a six month hire, this one is mine for five years) and I am...

    Critique A bit of a catch up thread.

    Time for a wee bit of Silverstone Classic: 7) From the car club displays. In this shot you have a bit of the first model of 911, a bit of Porsche's first mid engined car a bit of the Carrera GT and then the last of the air-cooled 911s. Just a bit of history here. 8) The Williams FW14B with...

    Who owns copyright of an image?

    Im fairly certain it was Wex actually but equally wrong. My point stands though, no matter how the trigger triggers, it ain't done by the tog, so does the lightning own copyright as it triggered the photo of itself?

    Who owns copyright of an image?

    I don't know. I've never done lightning photography but I read a guide on it a couple of years ago which said you needed a sound trigger. I thought the same as you, light travels much faster than sound, but apparently thats the way to do it.

    Who owns copyright of an image?

    To extend that even further, surely then a photo of lighting taken with a sound trigger would be the copyright of the lightning itself as it triggered the image not the photographer who composed the scene.

    BTCC Croft

    1, 2, 10 + 12 would have been junked if I were processing them. Too soft to keep. 3, 4 Much better, with 4 being the pick of the two, 5 Fantastic shot. Love it. How did you get Turks looking not moody??? 6 A well executed shot, but not really my thing. It takes a particular car in a...

    My New Toy

    I just picked up my first lorry and given my photographic bent, papped the heck out of it. Most of the shots I'm about to include were taken when the signwriters were doing their thing, shot for them rather than for myself, the working shots were taken out on the road this week and processed...

    Stunning work as always @MattyW. Pick of the bunch for me is the flaming M1.

    British GT - Snetterton

    #2 for me, hands down. But if Shorty would allow the match I would propose marriage to that car, I think its the best looking race car British GT has ever had. As for the mystery driver in the car. Judging by the Scuderia Ferrari logo, Blancpain scrutineering sticker and the little bit of GT...

    I guess that would be why you do runner's and I do race cars.

    Different strokes for different folks. I'm not a fan. In fact if I'd taken your shot I would have probably cropped it in to lose the legs. The story there is the strain on the face. In my opinion.

    New Lens Investment

    Oh hell yes! I can't talk specific weights but I wouldn't trust a neck strap with it. I always carried it on a monopod when it wasn't in its case, carried like a brick hod.

    UEFA U17 Euros - Croatia

    Probably my least favorite sport in the world, I've absolutely no interest in football. BUT. Your images have captured the passion and emotion of the sport and present it in well composed photos with beautiful processing. 1318109.jpg is a work of art.

    I'm sorry to criticise but I've looked through the entire set on facebook and there isn't one there that I could pick out as a favorite, except perhaps the one of the little lad in the dragon thing. Those that are in focus need some serious composition change and those that have a decent...

    New Lens Investment

    If I were you I would go for the 100-400, its more flexibile and unless you are doing a lot of night racing the f4.5-5.6 won't impact you unduly. If you are planning on doing a lot of low light work then a f2.8 prime lens is the better option but I don't see that the step up from f4 to f5.6 at...

    Panning with micro 4/3

    I've just switched to XT-2s so have been getting to grips with EVF blackout too. I've found that the best thing to do is go for rapid fire. I understand what @ukaskew is saying about picking your moment but I don't have the luxury of not getting the shot, I have to get one in focus! I'll give...

    Critique First Time Shooting Golf.

    OK, new problem here. The marketing manager for SIV, who run the municipal course on which these photos were taken has been in touch asking for a copy of images. Anyone know if I can charge for use or do they have rights as the managers of the land? No permission was sought prior to shooting...

    Mark. No time for the 19th, had to get em processed. Archie, she's getting there, playing off 8, which isn't bad as she was off 15 4 months ago.

    Critique First Time Shooting Golf.

    No offence taken. I made that joke myself about two seconds after thinking up the name! As for not shooting on the back swing, or on the downward part of the swing it's so the sound of a mechanical mirror or shutter doesn't distract the golfer.

    Critique First Time Shooting Golf.

    I understand that. I just pointed out that people who don't shoot golf don't think about not shooting on the upswing. Then I got a bit defensive, sorry.

    Critique First Time Shooting Golf.

    Given that I hadn't even thought of it before the golfer pre-warned me, I would adjust what you have said to: Nobody who isn't in the know cares if it was taken on the upswing, downswing or on the way to the gents. Those in the know are constrained by received wisdom and un-receptive to new...
