I seem to have a thing for Cookham and the River Thames. A couple of autumnal shots from the (overcast part of) the weekend:

They look too flat and too sharp to me. I believe you can easily fix this in your editing software.

I am interested in the "too sharp" part of what you said. I have done nothing to sharpen them. That is straight out of the can. Are you suggseting that I might soften them?

As to the flat bit... does this look any less flat:

Unfortunately, you can see more signs of the building work hidden amongst the trees! I really appreciate all of this feedback because it helps me get these looking better!

I will also be back there on a better light day... but perhaps not now until next spring!

Cheers

The 18.12 from Paddington:

The sun through the windowed arch at the end of the platform was glorious.

EXIF: 5Dmkiii, 24 - 105mm at 105mm, 1/30 sec, f9.0, ISO1000.

Also at Paddington, but in the underground:

I guess I should probably have opened the aperture up a bit, but you don't have long to think as the train moves off and you have a connection upstairs...

Yes, it is! Despite what some people say on this forum, I like the narrow DoF when used to good effect like here.

Try Lightroom 4. It is brilliant IMHO in bringing life back to your photographs.

Animal Kingdom / Re: Unknown...
« on: September 08, 2012, 02:19:45 PM »
It's one of the darter dragonflies (Libellulidae, Sympetrum spp.), although I'm not sure which one; it depends where in the world it was shot to make a firmer ID.

Thanks for that. I have been told it is a common darter, mature female. This was taken in Marlow, on the edge of the Thames Valley to the west of London in the UK.

Can anyone tell me what this is? It sunned itself for long enough for a couple of shots. It looks like it has been in the wars:
