Hello Steve,
Etosha is in my list and hope one day I'll go. By car not far from Johannesburg :-) ; a few hours.

Beautiful lichen. I like its colour. Very good DOF and details. But don't like presence of hand here. Otherwise good presentation.

Hello Roland,
Like your experiment and it looks nice. Nice vertical framing and perfect BG. Eye bit in shade but you could get rid of it using highlight tool. Grass blade helps you to get rid of BLANK SPACE.

Hello Ron,
I can remembere your comment on my picture of Ostrich that one day you would like to capture that species. And now it's in your gallery.....
Well captured. I like winter colour of grass. Good details and perfect colour. You could get rid of this shadow Ares of black plumage easily.

Hello Musa Sahaab,
Perfect and nice BG.
I don't know plants. But can tell you I like your picture here due to its details, composition and the way you isolated the subject from BG.

Hello Marius,
Beautiful detailed picture of this 'Red Backed Shrike'. I have posted already this species male as well as female. I like to frame it in vertical form, although I know you prefer horizontal frame to show its natural habitat. Excellent focus.

Hello Deon,
Very common species in our ya d too :-)
Well captured this female Masked Weaver. Perfect focus on its eye. Nicely placed its eyes following 'RULE OF THIRD'; I like it. Just don't like unwanted OOF branches in the BG. You could easily removed it using clone tool.

Hello Laszlo,
Again we are NEIGHBOR here on TN gallery.

I think this time you couldn't recognise your NEIGHBOR :-(
like you did last time.

I know this flower, unfortunately ;-)
Even captured picture during our staying in the Himalayan Mountain area. Beautiful colour and sharpness.
But it's not allowing me to say 'Wow' due to its visual impact. 'THREE ODD NUMBER' composition of flowers look good in vertical frame, but BG and surrounding too disturbing. Honestly here I can't see a picture from a Photographer ;-) better to say, your camera has taken this picture here.

In such situation, 'THIRD HAND' always help.
Thanks for showing and remind me my visit to Mountain area in India,
Regards,
Srikumar

Hello Alan,
Nice to see this 'Great Blue Heron'.

Beautiful bird and I like its chasing pose; dramatic. Quite well captured, although shadow areas are still visible. Like freezing splashing water.
But personally I don't like MAN MADE THINGS in nature picture. I just don't say this :-) I follow too.

Hello Pedro,
Beautiful coloured butterfly. Well captured if talk n its exposure as well as on its details. Very nice BG too. I like its POV too. But in my opinion, it could have been more eye catching view if you could framed it vertically. In such way you could get rid of unwanted BLANK SPACES (although you managed nice BG) and giving more space in front of the butterfly, composition could have been better too. So, no question of solving the problem of 'PLACING BUTTERFLY HEART OF THE FRAME' :-)

Hello Marius,
Very nice isolation of those trees from BG clouds. Very nice view and well exposure on white clouds. Like the way you used plants, clouds and mountain nicely in frame. Bit space in foreground helped here to get such eye catching view.

Hello Ron,
Excellent green BG. Beautiful Skipper and well captured. Details and DOF look very good. Petal, just behind its head looks bit distracting to me, but colourful indeed. Green BG could have been better, definitely in my test. But it doesn't look so bad also ;-)

Hello Silvio,
I can't remember when I last saw an eye of a butterfly from so close distance. Excellent details and colour. Although you framed very tightly which looks bit odd to me but in such way you get rid off such distracting BG. So in my opinion it's not bad. POV could have been better; I mean eye level :-)

Hi Alexei,
One of the most challenging photo on the whole site. An absolute perfect telemacro, with stunning details on the spider, and very good light management (even the photo might IMHO be a bit darker). I'm not at all surprised that so many people (yes, at that time there was a lot here) liked the image. Fantastic image, hats off to you!
Kind regards, László

Hi Alexei,
Nice composition and colors, perfect DoF... maybe the birds are slightly oversharpened? In spite of this, a very spectacular image.

Privet Alexei,
What a pity you aren't here on the site anymore. Your photos remind me to the period when TN was full of life, full of great photos and photographers. Nowadays, only a few left and the site's agonizing. It's so good to see your work again, even the old images. Common bird yet excellent photo.
