Very nice - love that blue feeder just sets off the russet of the battling sparrows....great action shots.

Just cruising the hundreds of Aus photos and this one I like - approximation of being stepped on by an Ent.



This is the Cathedral Fig at Dimbullah National Park - estimated to be 3,000 years old and you can walk right into the tree. The forest around it was deafening - unlikely one could have a conversation the critters were so loud.

Still making our way through our England honeymoon. Stopped over in Brighton to spend some time with my wife's cousin. After food + pints we ended up at a little neighborhood hall; an old brick building with a small stage at the front. 7 pound cover charge and BYOB; a chap named Jason Steel knocked our socks off with stellar fingerpicking on the 6 string and banjo, followed by the Diamond Family Archive, a four piece outfit playing atmospheric folk rock. Cool evening, I bought the CD.

Niagara escarpment touched by autumn....almost a paint by numbers scene come to life. One reason I like to be out on the back roads on the mcycle. Easy to stop and grab a shot. It's cruising the photos too.

Nice, MacDoc. Good balance, and definitely agree on the painting quality.

Thanks
That's the thing with point and shoot with no view finder and bright sun - just don't know what's gonna work.
Really did not notice the farm house in the corner when shooting but makes the shot in my mind.

The camera decided to focus on the foreground and softened the trees in the background which gives the paint feel. Bloody camera has a mind of it's own.

Probably everyone who has ever been through King's Cross Station in London has taken a picture of the ceiling and I am no exception.

After a week or so of shooting 100+ photos a day (had to cave and buy a backup CF card for my backup CF card) I saved space by being on trains all day from Brighton to York...only 8 photos from yesterday's travel day.

Beautiful, jellotor. Don't take this the wrong way: I could totally see this being on offer in a slick stock photography site. It's so crisply graphic.

Totally not taking that the wrong way. With all the beautiful historic vistas I've been shooting the ceiling of the train station inexplicably has been my favourite.

I pushed past 1200 photos today, despite the rain in York. We're half done our honeymoon. Yikes.

Here's today's choice bit, a carved face in the Chapter House of York Minster. I was forced to shoot at 6400 ISO and with the limited (nonexistent?) noise reduction of the iPad Camera Connection Kit I'm a bit dismayed at the results. Poor old William the Conqueror came out with a torrent of noise in the colours. That'll be on the extensive to do list when I get back to Canada and a real computer.

Bird Sighting

[QUOTE=Lawrence;1192130]Sorry, Nothing to show,
Came home, Saw a black and white bird with a red throat in my bird feeder.
Rushed into the house for my Nikon DSLR and when I was trying to focus on it,
It flew away, What the heck was it?

From your description it was likely a red breasted grosbeak. We just saw our first ones this past week. This week the hummers and orioles have arrived. Spotted a new bird to us: we think it is a Blackburnian Warbler. Small and fat but just gorgeous. Moved too quickly around the tips of a tall fir to be able to focus for an image. Hopefully he is in the area for awhile.
