Lovely image Annick, i love the wany she is toying with the grass. Great composition and nice soft light. It works for me! Well done.
Hi Gloria, these are a little different from our flox gloves (how did they ever get that name?). I'll be honest and say that I don't think the B&W works here. Fox gloves are very colourful after all and with the BG of the same tones the flowers are a little lost here.
Nice to see you again!
Hello Tom, lovely image. Great focus on the eyes and nice catchlights - the fur is amazing. The whole picture makes me think of a fuzzy and fragile old man. Very good work.
Hello Ali, nice shot of these forget-me-nots, interesting compositon and good use of narrow DOF, it would have been good to do without the OOF flowers in the centre of the picture. Well done.
Hello Steve, thanks for your emails. Sorry I haven't replied - I've been really busy and you know about making hay while the sun shines. Lovely light on this leggy brunette, she looks dusky, or should that be dusty? Anyway, she's a pin up.
Bloody things, I hate them! They get so raggety looking and nasty. In london most them seem to hobble around on stumps that were feet and they loook like they could do with a good shampoo. Good picture of this vermin. Oh, Hi Janice, nice to see you :-)
Hi Laurent, good shot. I love the pose of the bee - very nice details on it too. The colours are great. The bg looks a little banded, was this intentional?
Hello Matthew, this is a fantastic macro. Lovely colours and composition and tack sharp details. She looks like she's wearing a big mexican moustache. Great stuff!
Hi Jose, nice action you captured here - well done on that. As Howard says a little fill flash would have ligtened the suject and not allowed the BG to come through as strongly. I'm not sure of the exact ID of the spider but I can tell you for sure it is not Araneus diadematus, it is an Aranidae family member but my books don't cover your region so I'm sorry to say I cannot help further. Well done.
Hello Paul, Good shot. The details are good here. I like the colours and it's a good piece of behaviour you captured. The bg is an interesting colour(?). If I had to pick something to critise then it would be to rotate the picture 90 degrees clockwise. Well done.
