David you are so kind I have nothing on my computer that comes close to your blue bell you win every time.


I will have to look at some sea scapes I have for my next installment

Bluebell from last spring! Roll on longer daylight (coming shortly - I'm assured of this).

*I'm enjoying the "pooch pics" enormously - especially as I used to breed springers - but ceased when I changed jobs and moved to 'town' after living in a very rural 'tied' cottage (where I taught geography and geology at a field centre).

Nice bluebell shot. David it a Spanish invader?

Edit. I've decided to delete my bluebell pic, in favour of this slideshow:

David i was made very welcome along with another newby i just didnt think the pictures shown were as good as i expected, i have been spoiled with all the good ones on here

That's a bit disappointing for you, Ann...although I have to admit that the standard of photos & expertise has exceeded my expectations within this thread.

i will go again David its perhaps a bit unfair to judge after just one week.

i am trying to understand the relationship between shutter speed, ios and aperture but i need to play a bit more i think

It's not difficult, once you get the hang of it, Ann.

I could type yards of text on the subject, but remember there are some useful tutorials on YouTube that may help.

When you have 10 minutes to spare take a look at this one:

thanks i have subscribed to that i have looked at a few on youtube and im sure it will fall into place in time it seems to take longer to learn things the older we get or it might just be me

This is the rose 'Remember Me'.

Great photo, James.

I like the b&w format and (according to the experts at my club) the slight ripple in the water......if the water is like a mirror, sometimes it's difficult to decipher witch way up the focal point is supposed to be.

@davidK that rose is to die for.. absolutely gorgeous..

15/11/2013 at 17:01

I can thoroughly recommend this excellent website to anyone wishing to brush-up & hone their photography skills.

 I met this friendly little fellow whilst out walking in Austria a few autumns ago. Our paths crossed, so to speak, and then we each went calmly on our separate ways. Ahh!! [I hope KEF and others approve of this subject].

Again....loads of fantastic shots!!  David that a snake or a slow worm?

I got very excited when i saw the below on the road in Braithwaite Village, Cumbria until somebody informed me it was a slow worm!!
