Really beautiful photo of this swallow. I've never seen one of these guys before, so it's nice to see a well taken photo. The colours themselves are great, love the sheen on it's feathers. I think you've captured it well.

Hi Joe,

I love this macro, it's interesting to see detail of any sort of fly and this has plenty to show. I do love the clarity though a little sharper wouldn't hurt.

The golden colour to the photo is also quite nice. I do like it, quite a bit over all. The DOF works nicely too. One thing is distracting me and that is the bit of plant on the lefthand bottom corner.

I posted a workshop. Hope its alright. :)

Great photo of the Great Tit, Nicholas. It's well shot (camera wise ;)) considering I find it's one of those birds that just won't stop long enough for a photo (or maybe it's just me?).

Great DOF and quite sharp. Can really see the details in it.

This is one of my personal favourites, when it comes to your macros. I love the detail in the bee itself, though the DOF looks great on the wings and around the back of the bee.

The background is really smooth. A great thing that you didn't get in any sharp detail, as it separates the bee from it's surroundings, leaving the bee as the main focus (which should be the case in macro photography in the first place).

Great colour too, very vibrant. Just a fantastic shot all round.

Extremely beautiful photograph, Stephen. I love the composition here. Keeping the rocks in the foreground has created something somewhat special and an interesting point of view, almost as if the viewer is sitting at the bottom of the rocks, looking up to the main section of the waterfall.

Great exposure and clarity. Love the vibrant colours.

Wow... it's kind of weird. I was dreaming about Blue Jays last night and the first thing I notice when I log on to check out TN is a Blue Jay photo. Quite amazing I did dream about them, as we don't even have them here. :D

Anyway, moving onto the photo itself, it's beautiful and the blue is absolutely striking. The pose and and the detail really makes me think of an ornament you may put in a Christmas tree or something like that.

Excellent detail and clarity. Even the DOF is there which really helps with the close-up and focus of the subject. Beautiful. :)

Wow, it has a lot of hair. :D

This is probably the closest close-up I've seen of a jumping spider, and it's great. The details are especially good for the 1 second exposure.

The captured light in the eyes adds an interesting character to the photo, since we rarely get to see such close up photos of spider eyes.

Awww look at that. It's adorable (I can't stand spiders but I just adore jumping spiders... well, most of the cute ones like this one).

A fantastic photo. Perhaps the quality of the photo isn't the greatest but the detail is still great, as are the colours and DOF.

Just loving how close this is. Beautiful. :)

Hi Nelly,

Great macro here. I love seeing front-on photography of flies as their eyes are definitely their most interesting part. The DOF here is great and the black background sets off the details of the fly nicely. Sharp and crisp. Well done.

This is a beautifully composed shot. You've managed to get a view of protection here and it's lovely. She does appear to be laughing though I don't doubt that she was displeased with becoming a model. :P

I particularly like the low saturation in colour here.
