I haven't checked in for a while. You have some lovely images here Dominic.
Personal: I have the same secateurs and can understand - mine are not so well used these days, but are also squirrelled away. Lovely composition and the slightly faded colours and vignette work really well.
Graceful: Lovely shot capturing the movement nicely.
Static: I like the lighting and ambience and again, a lovely composition.
After an hour traipsing through the woods, with dog in tow, searching for this type of shot. I sat down to take to take a break, as i hadn't found the shot i wanted, (things are hard to find when they're camouflaged). As the dog was sniffing around, this little moth (well i guess it's a moth) took flight and landed on a nearby tree.
My next problem was my tripod wasn't quite tall enough (it has a short centre column in it most of the time for macro work) and it wasn't on very stable ground, tree roots, leaf mold etc.
So i got what i could.
Ok, so this might seem a bit of a random shot of some chili's, but i was trying out a new background that i'd made. I really am sh*te at art, so wasn't expecting a great result. That being said, i do think it has come out quite well and sort of what i had in mind when i started.
Long time since I commented, sadly your book is still topical. I love the detail in your Fern and your "Dandelion" for initial. your liquid shots with the rippled reflections are great and I like patterns of the poppy seed heads. A lot of great shots glad I visited.
