You are lucky to have seen animals i have never even heard off......i need to do more travelling!

Just got myself a scanner so can now scan a load of old pics i have and make a library up....time consuming though

Don't forget the wonders of UK's nature before you spend a fortune on foreign travel. I am stillcaptivated by the detail of insects, the grace and behaviour of birds ....or the antics of mammals ....even the familiar ones we've known since childhood ........ as you've probably noticed from the type of shots I post!

Yep! Time consuming! .....Warra ya get ... flatbed, dedicated slide scanner?

Talk about time consuming ....... ever drop your old vinyl onto CD ......now THAT's time consuming! :?

Here's a face only it's mother could love! (Note the size of the human adult thumb!)

Cheers, KK

I got a simple flatbed scanner...canolide 60...very happy withthe qualityand it easily makes pdf files which is handy for work!

Are you sure a mother could love a face like that?:-)

Ian

Congrats on the new job. Will you be working closer to home now?

Here is a pic i took on a recent trip to italy...i like it but feel it could have been a lot better....please give me some feedback so i can not make the same mistake again

Well ........My mother loved me (God bless her soul) .... so it is possible .... even with the bat!

Hmm tricky one Tony. I guess if I were being very logical .....I would ask myself ....is this a picture of lovely hay-rolls and a bit of background scenery to addbalancing interest.......... or is it a picture of mountains with some hay-rolls as foreground interest? I think you have to pickjust one featurefor your shot, concentrate the composition on that ....and then try to decide what to include (and as importantly) what to exclude.

I'm by no means any sort of expert at this ....but I've given two different treatments to this shot .... so you can see if my ideas workfor you.

Cheers, KK

Thats just the sort of input i needed KK

I was actually trying to capture the hay rolls as the main feature but landscapes are not my strength and i agree that i should have focused the attention to one thing...in this case the hay rolls. I will know better next time

Glad you found this useful.

Hi I've just got a +2 close up filter (Hoya) for my M410R after veiwing your excellent shots, the question is how do I use it?

Is it best to get in close with macro setting or abit further away and zoom in.

Can I put the +2 on the skylight filter I have onor is it best to remove the skylight first?

I just had a little play with it on and off with an object on my desk and it dose't seem to do much.

Thanks Greg
