8 days to go!
Very nice Rick,
How'd you get 'em to pose like that, mine aren't nearly so co-operative
Amazingly sharp on the eye facets, I guess the flash helps a bit with that.
Great composition and background too.
Thanks, Dave - you surely aren't complaining about your flies, with the shots I've seen. But you do get model releases, right?
Now that is vey very nice indeed. You might get me hooked on landscapes yet with stuff like this.
Thanks for the kind words. Here in New Zealand summer -v- winter makes for quite a difference - in summer the sun sets far more south which with our beaches running primarily north/south creates more of a curse than a blessing, as having the sun set at some kind of angle to the coast generally works out better (which happens more in winter). In the case of the above image though, the sunset was quite a ways to camera left.
For what it's worth, my studio is about a 1 minute walk from the red building right in the middle of this shot; yes, getting into the office can be hard some days
Rick - as stunning and sharp as ever. I need to practise more with me macro, I can see. I find getting focus like this difficult.
Colin - that is a real winner. Beauty in composition, colour and that so calm water.

Oh crivens. Klickit does it again and forgets to reset ISO. So - noisy, but captured travelling at speed on a dreary, low-light day.
Wonderful sunset, Colin: delicate colors, the reflections, and the opening to draw you in. What a beautiful image.
I really like this, Kit: the vanishing point to the left is a good composition, and the lines paralleling the horizon strengthen it and balance the diagonal power lines along the road.
Nice accent, Rob, very fruity. Are the halos from some backlight, or is that part of the PP? It's a great separator from the background, very well done.
I like this one too There wasn't so much as a breath of wind when I tool it - I did have a returning yacht sail right through the scene not too long before though - luckily they were going very slowly, and my Singh-Ray Vari-ND allowed me to stretch out the exposure to even out the rest.
I have failed, I have completely and utterly missed Day 24, and was too tired to snap something before I fell asleep (well into Day 25 locally).
I think I have even run out of time to shoot something on Day 24 in Alaska (assuming they are the last to change) - even though I'm in GMT/BST land (aka London).
Oh, the shame ...
I hope no one is compiling a spreadsheet of how many posts on which days and by whom
Hey, thats an extract from my CV. You missed the bit about expertise in tartan shopping trolley management.He's quite an oldie now... probably suffering dementia, not to mention cataracts and going deaf, but he's happy enough plodding around the house and garden...
