Re: Location and/or date from pic please

Yes I should have checked if there was any resemblance to the late Kenny Ireland before I posted. I won't ask if there are any more similarities between Donald and yourself - particularly his tastes in "hobbies"!

Re: Our new member to the family

Just seen this thread for the first time. She is one sweet (and lucky) little girl. Such a shame that you and your family couldn't enjoy those early weeks of puppy-hood. But the main thing is she pulled through. Most baby animals are cute but she just has that little bit extra - which does probably ...

Ignore them Skip :P - Dew Yew keep a troshin bor.

This is in keeping with the rules as it is English, albeit a local dialect, and if read almost phonetically is readable.

Sorry for the off-topic continuation.

Re: A trip round London at Night

Those are really lovely. London changes dramatically when the lights come on and your shots certainly brings out the details. The poppies are so impressive in daylight but by night they take on a different dimension. Again you've captured that beautifully Might have to take a small tripod on the tra...

Re: New Canon 100-400 mk2

The Sigma 150-500 should not be compared to the Canon 100-400 as if they are in the same class - they are not. Having said that many people use the Sigma and get good results. It depends on "perfectionism" for need of a better word. Plus, like many things there are good and bad copies.

Re: Poppies @ Twilight @ the Tower of London ~ 05Nov14

They have already been sold. Full info can be found on the Tower's website (just Google Tower Poppies if you want to), but in brief, they were £25 and proceeds going to various charities. I have just seen an item on the BBC website that part of the display is going on tour.

Re: Tower of London Poppies...

What a great take on this unique event. I saw it by day a few weeks ago but there are far more poppies now. I found an experience of mixed emotions. Firstly the visual contrast of the vivid red & green against the muted stone tones, then the thought of the work that has gone into making the poppies,...

Re: EOS 7D

Probably because with modern processors, you can! Even on my 400D I was shooting at 1600 last night and, although not great, with a reasonable lens and close to the subject got acceptable keepers. My wife has a 700D and that is far less noisy. It's a case of what works for you...or not.

Not sure what the "forum standard" is meant to be or if it exists. I've seen far worse in good light with "better" equipment so don't worry on that score. :P Interesting subject and nothing wrong with them either. Light and night shots are always interesting subjects - can be challenging and also gi...

Well clearly they won't appeal to the purists but then neither are they "crappy" (!) As photographs of what they are meant to represent they work for me. Had to make do with standing outside in the garden as they went over Brandon. Hope for a chance of some photos on departure. At least you got some...
