All looking good Kevin, although 'the girls' are looking a bit blue - is it the weather?  ;)

Hang on. I'm sure that's George and his missus. Hey @Bealman
Get round to your bus stop or you'll miss the last one!

I like that lost photo Kevin, even if it is George and his wife.
I think the lighting works.
I also know what you mean about wider angled shots looking more cluttered on screen than to the naked eye.
Excellent photos, as ever, nonetheless.

Oh yes Andrew.... It would have been rude not to  :D :thumbsup: :D

Glad you like the photos, I am still experimenting.... I think the girls got blue waiting for me to get the picture.... how can we warm them up David ?  ::)

I think the daylight bulb takes a lot of the warmth out of the photo, which I don't like anyway. Martin is spot on, as a photo can look cluttered as you are fixed to a small area, whereas in real life you see a wider view.

May have to photograph the girls and fishermen seperately :hmmm:

Not having the pleasure of meeting George, I can't tell if it is him or not under the lamplight ..... whoever it is, they are still there this afternoon  :D



I would hate you to get wrongly accused George  ;)

As we all know, close up photos show all the little imperfections. It is a great tool for spotting these, and correcting them on the layout, however I have done a little editing here, getting rid of specs of dust on the car, and stray bits of static grass. No matter how careful you are, and however much hoovering you do it still sneaks into the photos   :veryangry:

All best wishes

Kevin

The focus stacking is looking really good.
With kind regards

I'll try and think of something.  ;)

Yes, they definitely need to be kept separate.  :)

Let me take this opportunity to put the record straight.

It has been many, many years* since Bealman could have been caught in a compromising position beneath a lamp post  :)

Excellent Kevin. I think the we need a lot more shots of the girls so that you can get their exposure right.  :-[
