Mo's photo gallery


I thought I'd do a thread for my pics rather than just enter them into the competition.

I tried out a new lens yesterday, that I'll probably buy next week. I can't remember the exact distance of the zoom, more on that when I own it.

It's one of the three on the bottom row ]here.

This was a photo I took with my standard lens, note the [sign in to see URL] on the left, and then with the new close up lens, I want this particularly for photographing wildlife, especially birds.

This is the close up

This one is of the stack of paper behind the [sign in to see URL] board. I'm quite impressed with it.

Very nice Mo - hope you're happy with it, it looks great.
I haven't tried comparative pics with my zoom yet - hadn't thought of it, but will have a go.
It's also a good idea to have a special photo thread so I'll do that too!

Re: Re:


It's amazing how good cameras are now, from photographs like that it's as if you're there only scaled down. It looks like a good find.

I thought so Leo. It's a little expensive for an amateur photographer but I need a new interest to calm me down. I'm getting far to stressed lately, I find this relaxing

Re: My photos


I played around with Photoshop, with that picture of the yellow hibiscus:

Thanks Mel. I thought I'd change it in the photo competition.

Very effective but it hurts my eyes, not sure why! But I can't look at it for more than a second ... sorry Mo!

I thought it's amazing how I got the effect of making the dots 'swim.' pretty nifty.

Re:


I took it out of the competition, on second thoughts.

Here are some I took yesterday with the new zoom lens:

The river mouths on the coast trickle down to some largish rivers and others like this one that i always see on the road but is too far away to photograph:

This is just the houses on the hills in the distance:

This one, I cut the barrier on the road off the bottom, but again, the ocean is too far away to get with a "normal" lens, so I was quite pleased to get this.

They were taken from a moving car, so any blurring is understandable, even though I did use a very fast setting for the shutter.

Then I stood outside yesterday with the monkeys playing at the bottom of the garden, again usually too far to get a decent pic. I thought this one was cute, it looks like he was trying to hide, ineffectually, behind the branch he was holding:

I'll show the ones I took of the birds this morning, later when I get around to downloading them.
