Pleased you liked the example, Ann. I think the milky effect of the water makes all the difference.

You would need to use a tripod though, as any camera movement would blur the whole picture....it's the water's movement plus a low shutter speed that gives that result.

In much the same way, you can have fun with windmills.

That's impressive, ZombieGardener....what camera settings did you use?

I'm no expert, rather point and shoot, but some flowers just look gorgeous close up like these gazanias.


 


 And some look weird, like this ageratum.


 

A very reluctant photographer cos I'm not very good at it but I enjoy these excellent photos.  This is a perfect addition to a garden forum.  I will comment, admire and enjoy this thread without posting a photo but I have a feeling I will pick up the photography bug.  It's a thread that will neither divide us  nor cause bad comment.  Roll on those pics

hi david, I used the camera on my phone for that pic, I just checked the properties on the photo. I thought it was a macro from my point and shoot. Are you in a camera club?

I like to take photos most days. I know how to turn the macro on and off, but totally lost with ISO setting and shutter speeds.

lol Salino nice dog & piggy.

Great shots lizzie nice colours.

Well I’m absolutely delighted by the start we have made.

I said when agreeing to start this thread ‘I have just one small reservation. I know there are some really good photographers out there and I get a lot of pleasure from seeing their pics, so I hope it won't be just about my input’ …..well, I was right about there are some really good photographers out there, but really pleased it hasn’t been just about my input.

I would just like to extend a warm welcome to martymower, who I’ve known from other forums a long time ago.

 ZombieGardener – I had forgotten just how advanced mobile phone cameras are these days, your pic is a brilliant example. Don’t worry about ISO etc, I’m sure they’ll crop up here in future.

 

Keep those gorgeous pics coming.

David K

Morning, Ann - That's a lovely pic. Mistakes? None really, except pehaps the apple tree could have been used to frame the scene from a different angle

A walk along your local canalside can somtimes offer good opportunities:

Nice photos.

It woud be nice if posters could state which camera they used & settings/exif data etc with each photo.

David K

Nice shots, KEF....I kinda guessed they weren't taken Bognor Regis.

Agreed, but if the photos are taken in 'auto', it maybe a problem (time consuming at least) to retrieve the shooting data.

Here's one from a holiday a few years ago. It's just a fairly old Olympus digital camera. Not sure of the settings or any techie data LF - sorry!

I'm never really quite sure what makes a photo special. I have a little Canon Ixus which I just put on automatic and I point it at scenes I like, or family - whatever I would like to have a memory of. Photos like this one of where we stayed in the Gorges du Tarn.
