Day 2 - Let's rock and roll!
Day 2 - Let's rock and roll!
You guys are FAST! It's still July 1st for me here >.< GMT -6
Good on you guys and girls. Day 1 is looking good. I haven't signed up because I know I'm going to be out of range of a computer for a slice of July (2nd half).
Re Chriss' point, the important thing is that each of you post up an image that been taken on 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc July wherever you are. So there could be a 24 hour tailback as those EoG get in first and those WoG come along behind.
EoG? WoG? Easy - East of Glenfarg. West of Glenfarg. Forget Greenwich. We're the centre of the universe!
I've been posting a day ahead, figuring that Colin's time zone would control things: I expected that he'd delete anything that wasn't there by midnight Enzed time. You know how inflexible he is.
Also in my PAD album.

I'm really happy about most of the composition. I didn't crop it by a single pixel: I got exactly what I wanted in the camera, which is rare for me. I like the diagonals and the light.
But now I think I shouldn't have that out-of-focus small log across the foreground. I thought it would give a feeling of depth to it, but it seems distracting when I see it on the screen: do others feel the same, or am I just having shooter's remorse?
Any other C&C most welcome.
I looked out at that same tree this morning and it was swarming with wax-eyes. These fragile wee birds disappear if great, gallumping sparrows come near. The wax-eyes were my original "hope for" yesterday, but they quickly flew away when the sparrows arrived.
Wax-eyes are hard to catch - they move very quickly and "flitter" their wings often when feeding, like babies. There was a bit more light today, and less noise than the sparrow image yesterday. This wee one stayed on the apple long enough for me to catch her. Notice that the apple is much more hollowed out than yesterday and there is some light shining through the skin.

Rick - You shouldn't have shooters remorse over that. True, the front-most log is oof, but it then gently leads the eye to the back of the view. Voila!
Tonight's humble offering to the Gods of Photography!
