    Cracking street photo Fooj ... love it ....
  4. Just checked the EXIF Den .... taken 20 March 2019 17.25 HRS ... Sunset was at 18.28 hrs that day... just over an hour later .... the silver light on the sea is where the sun above was trying to break through a lot of low cloud ... so you are right ...Here's the original ..there are three kayakers in the water ...
  5. My turn for POTW again... As usual, there have been some splendid images to choose from this week and honourable mentions go to: Rybear for Cenarth Falls and Fuji for Spitfire. But the stand-out image of the week for me was this one by Clicker: Well done, Polly! Original thread here. Gareth
  6. And I would say you did a good job David, the last time I walked through there it was heaving!
  7. Judging by the light it looks as if the sun was still quite high at the time you took this Polly. Which pleases me as you have achived that 'last light before darkness sets in' scene that you sea at coastal locations before the sun has actually gone down. There, I have been and stated what I think...now blow me out of the water and tell me I'm wrong
  8. Further to my study very early this morning of Art Macro studies of flowers, I decided this afternoon, to explore further using a very different DIY lens.... the tiny vintage Cine Camera lens this time opened right up to F2 to ensure the shallowest DOF.. no extension rings just slight crops of my frame-filling observations.... so what you see....I saw through the viewfinder. A further study of different colour Backgrounds might follow... pastel-paper perhaps ? Cheryl and Polly should be interested in these....it was their joint post that motivated me so strongly this mor
  9. I've removed it altogether now and added the amended version underneath Van ... as I tend to agree ...it was larger than I usually do it ... misread inches for centimetres ...doh Thanks all the same ... your comments are always appreciated Van 😉
  10. A really nice calming image, but I do find the frame a bit distracting for my taste. Having said that I’d still hang it on my wall.

    I actually posted a link to Kathleen Clemons’ work a while ago before mentioning her to Cheryl on here Fooj but I’m pleased to see that you have watched some of the videos too after reading this . You are certainly not intruding as far as I’m concerned Fooj ... I am pleased to see anyone being inspired to try out other ways of looking at things that we so often take for granted or look at in an orthodox way . You’re always such an enthusiastic member and willing to try out ways to get from A to B with the least expense using anything from Sticky backed plastic ( like in Blue Peter da
  12. An almost deserted contrast to the the busy daytime shots I took earlier. These were taken at a handheld 1/25 of a second (ISO 1250) so maybe not as sharp as I would like.

    Forgive me ladies for intruding on your thread.... but, you pair have fired up my creative/inventive mode....after studying a slideshow of Kathleen’s work, and then watching part of the YouTube interview; I took myself into the garden at 07:20 to shoot a flower series especially for you . i had rightly thought that my super-cheap-easy to make Art/Macro set up might achieve similar results.....here then are my first efforts whilst still half asleep. once I get a creative idea it is difficult to stop my mind working overtime to resolve issues. My lens is simply one from a vintage

    Here you go ladies.... this might be of great interest to you ?
  15. I always said I’d never shot a wedding, but I got talked in to it by two of my best mates, and considering the hassle and upset they’ve had to go through to make sure their wedding still went ahead in these uncertain Covid times, it went well. pity the weather was all over the place from sun to dark clouds . Me and the bride had checked out area around the registry office for locations to shoot in, plus she wanted to walk down an isle as such with her son and me capture the first look as groom see his bride. It was hard work shooting in the registry office as I wasn’t allowed to move or use fl

    SPITFIRE

    Perfect timing and well captured, his eyes are bang on and hold the viewers interested. It makes me want to know what he was thinking at the time, as he was looking at you.

    Thanks for sharing your reflections, Polly. Its true it’s good to experiment as that’s where the creativity comes in. Like you, I am often striving to achieve the image in my mind as with the iris photo while, at other times, I’m experimenting without an image in my mind. I checked out Kathleen Clemons photography & can see why you are a fan. It’s lovely work but no better than yours (in my opinion). Some of her landscapes are also beautiful: several with a solitary tree in a soft landscape that I liked very much and one of a Clydesdale horse walking in the snow.
  20. I can make out a hedgehog shape on the right. Missed it at first glance.

    Track day

    thanks Denis. i always make sure my shutter seed is slow enough to capture some movement in the wheels, I hate shots where the car/bike looks parked!

    Brilliant capture fooj!

    Track day

    I'm the first to admit to not being a sport fan or a liker of sporting images. In fact there is not a single sport I have the remotest interest in, but this photograph certainly captures the sense of speed and control of the machine. So a big well done from me

    Track day

    last weekend I was asked by another photographer to cover a track day for her as she was away with her mum. you are all used to me posting motorsport but not usually the TWO wheeled variety. I walked away with 3000 Images, this one is nt technically perfect but I really like this one, you can see where he is aiming his bike by following his eyes.
