    A Feather Caught

    Hi,
    This one was taken on my wanderings around the local lake. I am giving Bibble5 a trial, using the Linux version as I have moved back to Linux as my main OS. It is a tight crop as I was using the kit 55-200mm lens. I like this sort of thing, a single leaf caught in a spiders web, a feather on grass and such.

    Cheers

    Have you thought about cropping in a bit tighter? It looks like you've captured some nice detail that could be emphasised with a closer view of your subject.

    Hey Malcolm,
    Here is a closer crop. It seems to be something I am coming across lately, I was at the Botanical Gardens with my son, chasing lizards of course, when I found another feather caught in some vegetation. I have added a pic of that as well.

    Cheers

    Don't mind the closer crop, I just don't think there is enough to the colour of the feather, may play around with it a bit in Gimp, try out my artistic side.
    Thanks Cakey.

    Cheers

    The trouble with feathers is that they can be so pale and delicate that it needs a plain, suitably coloured, background or a rather close crop in order to bring out their full potential.
