  1. Well with the weather being so bad for the last six weeks or so it has forced me to catch up on a little post processing.

    Nice Phillip, I thought you had sold the D200?

    I know what you mean about the weather, its so bad up in the hills i've only managed to get out twice in the last two months!

    i love these
    i might be partial to owls, but that second shot really makes me smile
    well done

    incredible IQ you've coaxed out of that Sigma 800
     
  5. Hi thanks Paul, I have sold it:frown:.

    Phil.

  6. Hi Greg yes its a very very good lens, it's better optically than my 600 afs f4 nikkor was with a 1.4 converter fitted. Will definitely get another one if this one was damaged beyond repair.

    Phil.

  10. Beautiful! That poor swallow looks rather cold and wet - I bet it's dreaming of Natal. I hope it's on its way by now.

  11. both very cool shots, very well done! Is that Owl also called a Tawny owl? or is the Tawny a different species.
     
  12. The owl is a cutie. I wish I had taken the photo of the tree swallow, it is one of the best I have seen.
