Hi Allan,

Nice catch up there!

Camo - He's definitely hard to spot, especially in B&W. Looks like he enjoys being in the undergrowth.
Tiny - hmmm ;)
Snappers Choice - I'm not a birder, but I like that. Those colours are exquisite :clap: What more can I say...
Texture - High(ish) iso to bring out the grain of the stone? Happily that angel has it's eyes closed, so isn't going to blink at me ;)
Activity - Works for the theme. A shame you couldn't get them walking towards you. I do like how the orange contrasts with the green though, so I guess no opportunity to get her face on.
Artificial - Well that's an odd thing. Works well in B&W and well spotted.
Autumn - Lovely. You've really caught the autumnal colours and it's very nicely laid aout and composed. I think it would work for a Christmas card too.
Wet - Is that a car bonnet/roof? The metalic blue makes it look like that's what has been used for the background.
(ETA - just read the comments - it is a bonnet then :) )
Topical - Love it. But to be honest, that's harsh on C**ts.

Thanks for the big catch up, the high iso was just the grave yard was dark in various places so it was just left on iso 800 by mistake I tend to forget settings sometimes :oops: :$

WEEK 42 FOOD

Medlars by Allan Howe, on Flickr

After last week I might as well stay in the gutter..........

Medlar fruit, an acquired taste I believe you eat them when the flesh is rotten, I have never tried one but apparently they taste a little of custard.
The French commonly call them "Cul de Chien" implying they look like a dogs bum

Funnily enough I was sat in the pub last night talking about medlar jelly recipes. Nicely shot - you've made them look more attractive than they normally do!

I can see why they get that name.
A good foody still life, a nice even light, no blown out bits.

Well I expected someone to make a pigs ear of it but not a dogs ass! :coat:

Nicely composed and exposed, interesting and different take on the theme.

A nicely composed still life. Sounds interesting to sample.
Thanks Phil, I think I would try the finished product it’s just the thought of having to let them go off before you use them puts me off a little
