Street & City / Margaret Thatcher's funeral
« on: April 17, 2013, 04:42:13 PM »
I don't particularly want to enter into a political debate on this forum, but I thought I would share these two that I took today as the procession passed near my office:


Second hand emotion by RCARCARCA, on Flickr

EXIF: 5Diii, 24-105 @ 105mm, ISO2000, 1/2000 sec at f4.5

Taken as the coffin was transferred from the hearse to the gun carriage.

EXIF: Exactly the same.

I did not necessarily warm to Margaret Thatcher nor did I agree with all of her politics, but I do not like the jubilation at her death. Nevertheless, I couldn't help myself and I had to take this photograph...

Comments (photographic rather than political) welcome!

Thanks for looking

Beautiful photo's. You were there in the right time of the day.
Did you do some post processing on colors?

Thank you. Some light processing in LR4, mainly increasing the temperature and upping vibrancy and saturation. But not too much (I hope!!)

I thought that was just great. You are inspiring me to try, but i might have to see my daughters both at university and get divorced before I could find the time...  :(

Animal Kingdom / Re: Gulls on Thames

Fantastic pictures. The last time I shot Gulls, the shutter speed was 1/800. Too slow. A learning...

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks... one of the glories of the 5Diii in my mind - you can push the ISO to get the speed and still have a vaguely usable picture. All I need now is the L lens to complete the set up!

A great shot. I like #2 a bit better; there's more detail in the right-most bird's neck.

The water looks like liquid gold!!

Thanks Zen. Much appreciated.

Nice action in your shots. How do you like the DO lense, autofocus speed ok?

Thank you. I bought the DO when I was comparatively new to this game. I used to think it was great until I started exploring L lenses. I will be upgrading to the L when I have some spare cash! It is simply not as crisp, now I know a good craftsman never blames his tools, but this is simply not the best tool in the box!

Thanks for looking

Why is the gentleman reclining like Cleopatra? And where are the serving folk with the wine goblets, rich foods, and other accoutrements? :p

Wine? Beer? Where???!!! None available in public anyway, and I certainly did not see any. The only thing that approached a beer was an "alcohol free malt drink"!!! One of the things you need to be careful of, is not to show the soles of your feet to the other members of the group. That of course means you have to adopt a pose such as the one shown!

If I get round to it, I will post a couple of photographs of the food and drink!
