    Safari-Pilansberg South africa

    Been away from the forum for a while, glad to be back. Spent 4 days in Pilansberg SA, and had a great time. Saw some things I've never seen before, did not manage to snap everything, but got a few shots regardless. Will update this thread as I get through all my photos. Thanks for looking, as...

    LR problem/question

    Hi everyone, I broke my LR. Problem is that one photo seem to be always selected. And when I scroll, or use the arrows to go to the next photo it only switches between these two photos, and does not continue to next. In both Library, and and develeop mode. It seems like there is always a...

    Hi everyone, have not been on much lately. Went to a classic car exhibition and tried out my newish 90mm/2.8 Tamron Macro. Not sure if I like the B&W more than the colour. Kind of like the yellowish background, in the colour, and the silvery shine in the B&W. As always, C&C more than welcome.

    Blue Tit

    Found a nest in our local park. Positioned myself under a bush, and waited for the parents to come. Was windy and tricky with the 150-600. This one came out nicely. I left soon afterwards, as they were visibly disturbed with me being there. They get tamer later in the season though. As always...

    Small Medieval Church

    Hi everyone, hope everyone has had a good festive period. I've not been posting much due to a heave work load, but will try and make time for this wonderful forum more next year. Took these shot on a recent walk in southern Germany. I'm pretty new to B&W processing so any c&c will be...

    New gear

    Finally got my 'Nikon' macro lens I was yearning for since I switched brands. It's the new Tamron 90/2.8. Tuned it yesterday with the dock, and went out to snap a few pics. Think they came out well enough, lack of sharpness probably user error. As always C&C more than welcome. #1 Moss #2 Leaf...

    Some flowers

    Went for a photo walk earlier this evening, went looking for squirrels and birds, but found none. Was quite late so the light was bad, so I decided to play with shallow DOF, and see how it goes. I liked these. As always C&C more than welcome. #1 #2 #3 #4

    Macro Lens

    I'm in the market for a macro lens in the 90-105mm range. I've tested the Nikon 105/2.8 and the new Tamron 90/2.8 and can honestly not see any difference between the 2. i was little annoyed that I can't use the largest aperture (2.8) on either lens when close focussing. The salesman said that it...

    Lion Statue

    Saw this on my little photo walk on Saturday. The lion was in front of our local court, and the snake woman was on the facade, not sure who she is or what she is supposed to represent. As always, C6C more than welcome, I don't do a lot of B&W #1 #2

    Meet Bonnie

    Had the pleasure of spending time with the old girl over the last couple of days. Thought these came out quite nicely. I'm having real trouble focusing on an 'on rushing' dog tbh. I've tried different focus settings on my D7200, but have not found the right one yet. I was using a Tamron...
