Above - Chris, great positioning to take a look up and see what's above. Good capture!
Thanks ! The hummingbird bird is one of my favourite shots of the StLucia holiday. Spent hours getting the shot right as they move so fast.Hi Chris, not quite up to date yet myself but just popping in to congratulate you on catching up again and posting some excellent images. My favourites are the Hummingbird for 'Free', with some super details captured to reward your patience, the faces of the youthful solders for Young, which works very well in monochrome, the lovely fresh tree canopy for Above, and the contrasting light and textures in the forest for Light. Well done
Thanks !Above - Chris, great positioning to take a look up and see what's above. Good capture!
Thanks Dom, very kind of you to comment on quite a few of my pics ! Much appreciatedFood – Nice composition, the gold egg pops against the black background, while the empty wrappers give some added interest. Demolished all my eggs quickly too.
Smooth – The handle looks like it’s used a fair bit! I like the bridge in the back ground too. I think I recognise it, is this at the top where people leave their cars?
Above – Fits the theme well. Good texture on the tree leading you up to the blue sky. Green leaves stand out well against the clouds and blue.
Hot – That’s definitely hot! Like how black the image is. Good detail of the logs turning to embers.
Light – Nice woodland image. Works well in mono, curious to see the colour version as well.
Crowd – Both are good images. I like the through the reeds perspective of number one, but also the colours and shapes of number two. I think the second is my favourite overall.
Think you might be right Dave, I was torn between the two but the simplicity of the balloons and bright colours might just be better than the canal boats.#2 for crowded for me Chris, like that the balloons are bunched up together and colourful.
Thanks Allan !Either of them for me they both fit the theme well
Bit of a pattern here, leading towards the balloonsFor the Crowd image I think it's the balloons for me too. It's just an easier image on the eye I think. The other image is nice but I think the balloons take it, just.
Thanks Gareth, I am still slightly torn between the two but I’m not too sure about the canal boats as on second thoughts it’s a bit busy perhaps ?I like both images too!
I like the composition of #1, and your choice to shoot through the reeds is a clever one. The canal boats seem to melt into the foreground, and I like where you placed the cottage in the background too with the natural framing created by the trees. Picture postcard perfect!
The balloons are fun, colourful, bright, and cheerful which can only be a good thing.
If I was pushed, however, I think I would pick #1....I think the composition is very well thought out, and it works very well, and fits the theme nicely.
Thanks Ian, not too busy ?I like both of theme Chris. Nice concept/idea to both for theme.
I think i'd sway towards the first as you'd not normally see so many barges in one small space, so it's a pretty unique image
Thanks Peye !Ballons also for me Chris, much more colourful and crowded. Nice spot.
That’s a thought Clive, I have a few others I might relook at for the canal boatsI like the balloons for colour and composition, I think a different view of the barges (if possible) might have worked.
Certainly seen better days
It’s sure is a terrible shame, seems like people have a dream, set up a business then for reasons beyond our knowledge fail and so many end up like this. Came across quite a few buildings like this over the last day or so.Nice image and definitely on theme for Decay(ing), such a shame when things like this are left to rot ... a waste.
Thanks Dave, on second thoughts I should of used the doors as my first choice !Got to be the doors for me as it shows decay very nicely.
Thanks Stan !I prefer the second blue window shot. Love the texture and colour shades of the paintwork at a different stage of decay. The crop ratio, although unusual but fits the subject well.
Thanks Bob !For both CROWD and DECAY I prefer your second choices.
The balloons look superb as do the shutters. Great captures!
Thanks Dominic, seems to a theme now about the shutters !Crowd
Both good shots, but I'm leaning towards the balloons. It's very colourful and I like the shapes.
It's the blue shabby doors, they look great (well not great, but you know what i mean).
Thanks Pete !Chris
The window shutters for me. love the colour and detail.
Thanks Gareth !Both are really nice images Chris, though I think I am swaying towards the shutters too.
I just love the colours and textures, and it perfectly fits the theme.
Cant't beat a bit of nice peeling paint!!
Such a shame Ian there were so many buildings being left to decay. I was torn really. Nice idea for an overseas workshop !I don't mind either of these Chris. Both work nicely for theme. Shame about the decaying bar. You need to reconsider your options there and invite us all out for a TP 'workshop' (cough***)
I like the second one too as the character of the old doors shows through the ages of decay. Nice colour too
Thanks Allan !The window shutters is a nice image right amount of decay and good contrasting colour
Must admit Mark it’s one if my favourite lens, hard to compare against my old canon. Works great with the 1.4 tc as wellThat's an excellent macro shot, great detail. It is a cracking lens!
Thanks Bob, captive bird but just caught his eye.Great shots for snapper's choice. Very sharp and superb detail.
Thanks Dave !Nice looking Harris Hawk shot.
Thanks Gareth but think the green is a tad bright, tend to agree with @Dave70DCracking close-up Chris....super sharp image of an amazing raptor!
Love the background blur, it perfectly suits the sharpness of the subject!
I love the expression on the owl's face....I think we've all had days like that!!
Thanks Ian, credit to the lens though !That's two really great images there Chris. The details you've captured, just show off these incredible birds perfectly
Definitely right I think Dave. I am going to see how I get on in LR and some selective adjustmentGood shots Chris, my only grip is tone down the greens a bit as to me they are to bright, love my 50-140mm too.
Thanks Susie ! Must admit I should of used the shutters as my first choiceHi Chris, the balloons are my choice for Crowded, super bright and colourful.
Decay, I think the shutters are more on theme and there is something nice about shutters they always make an interesting image, good colour too. It's sad to see the restaurant left to tumble down like that, probably best to follow your wife's advice on that one
Snappers choice, that hawk is a stunner, loads of excellent detail and a great pose too.
