Hello Asbed, Happy 5th! I sat one day in front of a bird feeder trying for this same shot, with a squirrel jumping to the feeder, and I wasn't happy with any of my shots, so I know how difficult this was to capture. Very well done. The detail captured on this guy is excellent. There is a busy background behind him but with your selection of aperture, he is still very clear and defined separately from this background.

Thanks, John

Hello Way, I like the "pop" you get in this shot of yours. The colour and sharpening of the front flowers and the guanacos really stand out. The mountain with the Jacobs ladder effect from the sun really back this up nicely. It would be interesting to see your processing on this one.

Thanks, enjoyed! John

Difficult but nice shot Mark. With the backlighting, getting the exposure right on the front of the trunks is tough, but you have good detail here. You have some burn on the top right, but there is still sufficient detail seen with the backlit leaves here to leave a pleasing photograph.

Thanks, John

Hello Mark, and welcome to TN. This is a great first shot. I like the colour and detail you've captured on this guy with great use of your depth of field to isolate the monarch from his background and the other butterfly. Ram's right the shot might be a bit larger for the presentation.

Thanks, John

Hello Jusni, judging from your exif data, this guy was kind enough to give you this great display in the late afternoon, as opposed to those Florida types that only come out at night. Nice shot with very nice contrast seen between your lizard and his surroundings. Very nice use of your flash, good light while not overdoing it.

Thanks, John

Hello Christodoulos, good crisp shot of this Sandpiper, well composed with excellent detail and exposure. The pose of the hunt is well captured in this shot.

Thanks, John

Hi Murray, I would have to agree with you about the Spit to Manly walk. It was one of my favourites, or a close second to the Bondi to Bronte walk. The good thing about this walk was the beer at the end, in Manly, at the Bavarian Cafe.

Anyway, I like the positioning you have on this guy. This is a very tough environment to capture these guys with the light and shadows. In this capture you got him, complete with a nice capture of the eye, but it looks like you ran into a bit of trouble with over exposure of the highlights on the rock, and a bit of loss of detail in the shadows.

Thanks, John

Hello Lisa, and welcome to TN. This is a good start to shooting on the natural side. You've presented these 3 very well on their angled ledge. Colour and detail is good with good focus. I like the use of your depth of field here with the farther one just starting to fade out in the background. You must have been pretty close to capture these guys like this with a 105. I agree with you about their call. This is one I really miss.

Say hi to the "school boys" for me.

Thanks, John

Hello Fatih, you continue to produce very good work on TN, with the capture of this Ibis. Your timing was perfect here, with great positioning of the bird in the frame, and great exposure of the bird itself.

Notes about the bird are probably a little redundant at this point; we've read it all a few times. Some notes about the shot would have been nice however.

Thanks, John

Hola Jose Miguel, very nice capture of this elusive creature. I am so jealous. The only time I saw one of these guys was at the Sydney Aquarium, and we bought one (a door stop) from Australian Geographic. These are for sure one of the more interesting animals to be encountered in Australia, and you've placed him into a very excellent presentation. Great shot, excellent notes. Very excellent work on your part!

Thanks, John
