Mark I love that I think that is the best I've seen to date :) Will fav/like in a mo on 500px.

Are there any bird experts in here? I'm building a bird house at the moment, and it's going where this is situated, but I want to fill this as well with food, I'm just unsure what is best? Lard + food, or just nuts/seeds etc?

Will get photos up of the house once done, just added the finishing touches (might be a week or so yet)... Hopefully they'll all congregate there so I can get loads of photos. :D

just checking that you're gonna put some nice natural looking perches or small trees all around the place - so they land on those first? like this at my friend's house... this one is about 5 feet away from their feeding station.

How very perceptive of you. I keep telling her about healthy eating but will she listen??

Nice Robin btw - love the colour contrast and sharpness of the shot.

Just out of shot is some bush thing (not your average bush), berry tree & something I'm not sure what it's called, but they land there now and on the fence just below the cage so I'm confident they will go here & in my bird house :)

Thanks for all the other info too from everyone else. Looking at these suet blocks, but have found a site (bookmarked on my other PC) for making food blocks too, so will have them hanging off the bird house...

I can see me putting in all this effort and not getting any attention :(:lol:

That's a better view to have while eating a full English than I had last time I had one Jon beats sweaty builders everyday of the week :) two cracking shot there chap.

Penel ditto what JD said about the robin corking shot.

Here's some from saturday's annual Folkestone Zombie Walk shot wide open on an over cast day with the 50mm on a super high contrast film used for the credits at the end of movies.

Sorry for the absence - been silly busy at the 'day job' along with cracking a rib which is 'fun' I haven't had a lot of web time.

Loving the robin shot Pen, never get tired of robins they just seem to 'love the camera'.

Ronin - PLEASE don't take offence at this as I'm a digital only man and this is completely my own personal opinion BUT the film shots are cr@p - please go back to the very high quality digital shooting you do.

.DAVID. (probably going to get shot down now)

If they were modelling photos then I could understand, but I think they work well with zombies.... the 3rd and last being my favourites.


Cheers Linda.

Thanks Radders, by using this particular film I was trying to get a B/W B-movie look and I think they work well in that style.
David the shots are not a sharp as I'd like but I was shooting on 50ASA ( ISO to a digital user ) super high contrast film not designed to be used for photography on an overcast day wide open on a 50mm shooting moving people, all be it not very fast moving zombies :) , on a camera with only 5 horizontal focus points so depth of field has had an effect on the finished photos as well. I'm pleased with them as some people spend hours in PS to get the same effect.

It's ok, I'll bring it back to life with this little beauty. That's a 2p btw...

He was under the table so it was a bit tricky getting a decent shot without him running off, lit with the 580ex.

Radders - nice shot. Chris will love it!

Dom - digital is the way to go. If you go back to film, next thing you know you will be buying dodgy old Japanese....oh :(

Nice set Andy - the 24-105 is my favourite lens.

Jon retro is the new cool...............or so I've been told ;)

Quick opinions one of the colour shots or the black and white? It's for use in an exhibition.

Here's a shot of the Victoria falls taken by hanging out of the door of a helicopter. I think I may need to calibrate my monitor as this looks a bit over done on my laptop.
