That lens is quite good actually for close-ups - I have used it in the past for close stuff and been fairly happy with it.

Where did you focus on the mantis? It looks slightly sharper on the little thorny things on its leg than it does on the face/eyes.

Linda

I focused on the face but it kept moving but that's the problem with shooting in the " wild " . I have to say I do like my 24-105 it performs well whatever I use it for I would recommend one to anyone.

Finally got the chance to get out early and shoot some London fog this morning. Wasn't planning on it, but when it became light and I saw everything shrouded in grey, decided to make a quick trip to Kensington Gardens. The sun coming out around 10am made for some great light.

Oh yes, I think they rock back and forth dont they. Well, if you use AF and put it on AI servo you should get it where you want it (with a bit of luck of course lol) - I often use that with my macro on insects and it works quite well, but you need to keep gently half pressing the shutter.

Im used to taking pics of insects in the 'wild' - most of them are in my garden so I never do 'set up' pics.

Yes I quite like mine and its good as a walk around lens if you are just out and about but mine doesnt get used as often as it should as I mostly do macros or bird pics.

Great set. Particularly like this one. Oddly, maybe try it without the dog . It's brightness draws the eye away from the "solitary" subject.

bizarrely I agree - the dog is too white.

I"ve been messing around with silly dog stuff. Not quite right with the shadow on the dog's left shoulder but the owner loves it so that's ok!

You know, I almost never do any pixel-level editing (other than healing dust spots), so it never occurred to me to do something about the dog. After a quick 30-second clone job in LR...how's this?

Thanks LindaB and Gundogs.

The kids on Robin Hoods Stride was my first proper go at HDR with people - I told my eldest to stay still and by pure chance my youngest wasn't moving very fast.


Sunset was really like that - astounding - I rushed out the house and even my kids came out to see.

Cheers!

Agreed, much better, the doggy looked like it was doing its business! :)

Here's one from me from London yesterday:
