Lovely images here from John and Bambi. Good work!
I took this a couple of days ago when we had a very foggy morning around the house..
I call it Dog in the Fog lol

Lovely left-looking sillouette, compelling composition, and frankly funny name, I must say; having found myself in similar situations after having had a hard night previous :wink: And the way the weeds frame it on the right along with the stringy plant texture against the rounded body of your dog. It's all very compelling.

Bambi never did tell us her horse's name, just that it is a heeeee. With respect to your dog, what is her name? Inquiring minds want to know.


LOL John, thanks for your kind comments on my photo! My doggies name is Henry, a name which I don't like much. He is nearly 7 years old and he was given to us about a year ago. We'd like to rename him to Yoda (because he has Yoda ears lol) but have been adviced that
will confuse him, so sticking to Henry for now...


There is a way around the name thing. Every time you call or speak to the dog use the name Henry-Yoda with the emphasis on Yoda, after a week just use the name Yoda.

and for #2: I don't have a macro lens- just 2 kit lenses: my 18-55 and 55-200. But I love macro photography. It's been worth it learning how to make my kit lenses work for me within my limitations as a photography. this was taken with the 55-200 standing back. :)


You may be interested to know about the reverse lens technique. Literally mounting your lens in reverse can get some seriously up close images for free (if you free-lense) or few $/£/E for a reverse mounting ring off eBay. This is how I started and it's a great start into Macro photography. Be careful when free-lensing (just holding the lens against the cam) though as you can expose you're mirror and sensor to dust.

some more info and example shots here

and a tutorial here

NEW UMBRELLAS! (I took this shot yesterday.) Each spring, Myrtle Beach State Park replaces umbrellas that have worn out at the end of tourist season.

Note the pecking order here. Lifeguards rule. Nothing is allowed to block their view of the ocean. You can see three lifeguard stands with their orange umbrellas in this stretch of the beach. Next in line are the chairs/umbrellas that can be rented for the day. Lastly, people who bring their own umbrellas must be situated behind both the lifeguards and the rental chairs, or positioned so as not to be in the way of the lifeguard stands.

Thanks Patrish! I couldn't shoot anything new for my sample shots, so I just turned the camera on myself! There you go. Something new.

That's my right hand by the way. It's a reverse image on the mirror. I know it fooled my brain when I was editing the pic :wink: But my left hand is fine. The middle finger works fine :lol:

Greg "may" have better shots but you have the 1st mover advantage! Like I said in the your other post, this is simply stunning. Stakes are very high on this challenge - feels good to not be Jon who has to make the call on these :)

Wow, thanks very much! High praise indeed! Full sizer on it's way in the other post (just so you can spot the 'orrible little mistakes i've made :) )

What a thread! Wow, some really good stuff here. A hoot to view.

Jon, you need to send your body back to Nikon. (the camera body, not your personal body). They put the logo on backwards. Surprised you never noticed it yourself. :o

Hoping this thread gets me out of my couch potato slump......

putting the cart before the horse.... :lol:
