I'll tell you what mate you have coped admirably with the strong contrasts and that bright window of light and I am suitably impressed !

I'ts a great result for sure but that doesn't mean I'll let you off the hook altogether though and an email should be with you already to better explain my findings and jog your memory ;o).

Nice work !

Eyup Sam, I'm pleased about that mate because i did struggle with this one and the one from Anne's seat,just on with it now. I was hoping to slow the water down but i realised if i did i would lose the sky completeley, so i'll happily settle for this;-)) cheers mate.

Yep Neil it's cracking shot. The light is perfect and you have got in the water and even a dingle.


well done

Neil Grimwood on November 17, 2012

A BD!! Rosa, now that i do like and i'm pleased you think it worthy;-) Thankyou kind lady.

Best wishes and thanks to both...Neil.

Ah, a dingle - cinematic jargon for a branch or other stick of foliage held into the top of a shot to give depth and perspective.

We still photo boys just use what is there!!

Regards Jeff

Found via Mr Google .. Dingle ... a screen or mat covered with a dark material for shielding a camera lens from excess light or glare. I guess if you don't have a proprietory dingle then using a branch held above the camera would do the same or as you've seen already Neil a brolly is ideal :o).

Jeff what you say seems to be true also but from what I learned the term dingle as in foliage refers to it's usage to create shade or shadow effects rather than depth and perspective.

However it is used a dingle is a damned good thing to have around and that pair of secateurs will have to be added to my kit after all Neil :o)

Neil Grimwood on November 18, 2012

Aha, now we know what a dingle is,then that overhanging branch made a good one ;-) Secateurs it will have to be then Sam*, might save me jumping up to remove bits we don't want,i hasten to add, i do mean "bits!!" Thanks fellas.

Neil Grimwood on November 20, 2012

;-))) I sometimes wonder whats next Ian, the "bit" of branch i mentioned was a dead twiggy bit about a foot long "dingling" right in the middle of the picture so it had to go. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a litter picker and a bin bag next;-)) thanks Ian, much appreciated.

Attention to detail lads is no bad thing :o).

Besides Neil if nothing else it shows you have your uses ;o) He'd only fall back to his lazy ways Ian if I didn't keep him busy and on his guard :o)

Neil Grimwood on November 20, 2012

Be'ave thissen lad;-))
