Hidden: Nice colours and nicely captured.

Small: Nice and technique bang on. Another shout for seeing the colour version from me too.

Hidden - well spotted Dave, colours on the bird at just the right place.
Small - Like Allen I wonder if colour would work better, but the Technique Box now has a tick.

You've managed to capture the lighting on the stump perfectly it creates a really nice atmosphere the B&W conversion really suits it
Cheers :)

Nice textures and lighting work in the B&W version but for me the colour one is the stronger image with the green moss on the stump balancing with the green leaf on the ground.

Nicely captured and very atmospheric. I prefer the colour too - makes the sunlight stand out more for me. but one has to get the tech in..

Like your hidden shot.
Small works very well in mono.

I have to say, I prefer the colour version. That said, there are good details, light and shadow in the black and white.

Damn that's close!
Very nice indeed Dave (y)
Ta :) With the minimum focus distance on the Fuji 50-140mm F2.8 being just 1m - and the same with a x1.4 on - it's pretty good at bigger insects like this.

Great detail, especially in the wings (which is the bit I struggle with a bit).

Lovely small shot. Mono for me by preference - colour works as well, but the tones in the B&W really works for me.

Great shot for the Hawker as well - amazing amount of detail there!

That's terrific Dave. Whenever I attempt something like this, I normally end up with a shot of just leaves!

Week 26 : Mother Nature

Cherries off the tree in our front garden. No fancy setup here. I just saw them on the glass cutting board on our kitchen, picked up the X-T4 and 56mm and took a shot, handheld. I may have a play with this lighting and something else at some point, with a tripod and more thought about lighting and reflections. But - I saw it, I took it, and I'm happy with it :)

Thought it was tin foil first of all, liking this Dave.

Those look very tasty!
The glass gives it an almost ethereal quality which makes the cherries almost look like they are floating.

I thought the same as Allan when I first saw it.

A very natural looking image Dave

That is a very natural looking composition, the kind of thing you woukd see in any kitcgen rather than a still life shot. They look nice too.
Snappers Choice: Cracking image amazing details, very nicety captured.

Mother Nature: I really like this nicely setup.

It does look like they are floating, great red colour.

Tasty cherries - I would have been tempted to move (eat) the 3 in the background.
