This forum is a great source of inspiration. Crashmans man-boat-dog-beer made me look out for men with beer. Didn't have to look for long.

This guy was stoned by his beer. Apparently had a wild evening the night before.

Alibunny, I saw the same butterflies as you. The thing was that I had the camera on the lawn, mounted on the tripod with the 600 mm A*. I waswaiting for a kite (bird, not toy), when I saw these and remembered your shot. It's shot at 6 metres, cropped and resized to 80%. I think it has pretty good details for that distance.

There has been some nice skyline/landscape photos lately. This is Sweden at its best.

And finally, all the wonderful flower pics made me dash back indoors and fetch my camera last night when I saw this.

Thanks for looking,

Kjell

I'm sure I know that guy in the first pic from somewhere, he looks incredibly familiar.

These are all stunning shots, one thing about them is they are so very sharp, how did you managae that? What camera do you use? (apologies if you've already mentioned that, I miss things sometimes).

Those butterflies are quite hard to shoot don't you think? They are so busy, never staying still for long, I tried to get some more today but they wouldn't co operate, in the end I had to come home as it was way too hot to stay out, shame.

Anyway, I am very impressed with your pics.

Thanks for the kind words, Alison. (edit: and Roy, who posted as I was writing)

The camera is a *ist DS.

The beerman (shot in Stockholm, I don't think he's a celeb),the backlit leaf and the flower were all shot with my Pentax SMC-A* 200 mm f2.8, a wonderful lens.

The Bustbeer with a Pentax SMC-F 70-210 mmf4–5.6 at 145 mm.

The landscape with the kit lens Pentax SMC-D 16-45 mm f4 at 16 mm.

The sharpness comes from good lenses, correct focussing and finally but not least Photoshop Unsharp Mask. I always use USM for web photos, since they loose so much when they are converted, compressedand resized. And of course a frequent use of the shutter release button, followed by the delete button.

It's a hot day here too, but since I'm on summer leave I have to be out working (always renovating my house, yes always for 15 years now and for the coming 15 years as it seems).
