    Re: Concert Photos C&C

    Shots look good, especially when you consider the difficulty. ISO1600 to 3200 seem to be required, so you've done well to produce some seemingly low noise images. I like the last one due to the...

    Re: Damsels I've known

    On Azure Bluets, the 7th segment is usually only half black, and 8 & 9 are completely blue. The first looks more like a northern, and the second two more like forktails, but I can't be sure.

    Brilliant shot. Maybe a bit more saturation, but comp is dead on.

    Re: Damsels I've known

    I'm a bit OCD when it comes to ID'ing. I've finally come to terms with accepting a Genus level ID on many of the flies I shoot. At least I'm getting over the urge to not bother photographing a bug...

    Ah, a top view would have been fairly straightforward in that case. Glad you were able to get an ID.

    Got a few shots recently, bug I think the diffused light from the leaf worked well on this one.

    Beautiful shots as always.


    Went on a butterfly count over the weekend, and ended up with more than just butterflies:

    I was going to suggest Photoshop for Photographers, and it seems Kelby has been mentioned already. I read that cover to cover and it was great.

    Re: Shooting Kids on a Swing (40D)

    I use MF. Using the first swing to try and focus a bit, then wait for the next one to take the picture. Of course each swing is a bit further away as they slow down, so it's somewhat difficult still.

    Large open feels seem best for the Bluets and Forktails. Spreadwings I found like the edges of forests areas. They're not easy to spot. Just a bluish line that floats around. Some call them sewing...

    #2 was a lucky shot I usually use the 180mm for distance, but I only had the MP-E,so 4" was all I had to work with.
