Nice pictures. They all look great. Especially the meerkat and tiger ones. The lighting on the tiger just makes it look that much more menacing.

Here's a meerkat picture I took a whole back and I decided to have some fun with it. I think it turned out great.

I love those! Always wanted a meerkat as a pet...

I love how clear the photos are. Very sharp. That squirrel looks like it was really enjoying that nut.

Here is when I went spelunking.

Inspiring photo, the colours and the composition are great. Also love the high shutter speed on the waves. I have nothing bad to say about this photo!



Fullsize image: warning massive file

edit: In case anyone doesn't recognize it from the TV, its the Olympic Park in London.

You have captured the neon in a great position, pity about it not being fully in focus. You have done great with the lens for that shrimp shot. and the last picture is a cool photo has no real focus point.

Great shots!!! My only suggestion would be to crop out the leaf with the gauge in it in your butterfly pic and position the butterfly in the lower right hand corner. IMO, your focal point is too dead center on that one and the pic would look much better using the rules of thirds.



Just playing again. Nikon D5000, 85mm micro lens, auto macro setting, and on camera flash.

The colors seem nice and accurate but the building is distracting. The river points directly to it so thats all I see.

This was my unintentional attempt at Bokeh

OK, I'll play.<g> Good attempt at slowing down the speed to catch "creamy" water over the little fall. But the whole scene is a bit chaotic. Try to isolate the little stream better from another angle. You might also want to try to move the big stick.

Really love the dragonfly! It's very clear and the single color background makes it pop. The city shot is great, love the reflection. The last fish is sharp and really well done.

Some of mine
Edit: taken with iPhone 4S. Some have effects added with instagram.
