Great photo of the Gold Finches, they are fiesty birds.

The couple look like they are having a pinic, just hope they are not in Derbyshire....

How very accommodating they were for you. 500mm, where were you, in the next county? :)

Nicely done, like the matching tones in the image.

Just seen your goldfinch image...that's a stunner for sure,
Thanks for both :)

Cheers Pete :)

Wow that's a superb goldfinch shot. Your original Pair fits the theme and tech nicely, so you can tick the box anyway, but those birds are just fab!
Thanks :)

That's a lovely shot of a Highland Coo. The framing is tight but loves the cool expression and looks as though a cigarette is hanging from the corner of his mouth. :giggle:
Thanks - yeah it's tight. Fills the frame :D Shooting at 500mm I almost didn;t get him all in!

Lovely image, plenty of character in there. Great use of the subject to depict the film too, nice work.
Cheers Jim.

They took a bit of finding but I ended up with half a dozen shots I'm happy with :)

Great shot. I love Highland cows.
You've filled the frame nicely, the colours and tones all complement each other and we'll it's a Highland cow.

Fabulous shot - I can't believe I didn't get the film when I first saw it. I'm so bad at this! It's perfect to depict the film and a handsome beast.

Cracking reflection Dave and bang on very nicely, I only have the Pro 12 but love the camera on it and find it amazing how good phones have come on with the cameras.

Thanks Dave. Yep - it's witchcraft this phone camera business!

That’s a super photo, I love the curve of the path, the clear blue sky, the reflection, it’s just perfect for the theme.
Thanks Susie :)

Great reflection, it's amazing what a mobile phone can produce when you think of the sensor size. Taken a second later might have got the lorry in the open space

Ta :) I got the lorry all the way across but didn;t want it to dominate. If it had been a big red Royal Mail one I may have let it take more of a role ;)

The stillness of the canal, the light of the day, and your chosen composition have all worked well to compliment each other here. I think it works really well.

I have nothing to add that hasn't already been said so...good entry, very nice and I like it. Printed on an A3 printer it might make a nice framed print.

Nothing much more to add than has already been said - I do like a nice reflection image, and this one is, indeed, very nice!
Cheers Jim :)

What a fabulous, still, sunny day. Lovely reflection and all nicely captured
Thanks - it was a tranquil hour just before sunset! I got a set of lovely golden light pix shortly afterwards!
