Love that first poppy and the chippy. The fading flowers aren't pretty (you know what I mean...they are past their prime) , but are very well done photographically and work really well. The crow are excellent as well...a very under appreciated bird.

Hi Eric,
Thanks for you considered comments.
I know what you mean about the fading flowers but that was precisely why I liked the challenge of taking their pics.

Nice set of fading poppies, Martin.
I like 2, 4 and the last two a lot.
Looks like autumn colors are fading further south too.

Thanks Chris.
Yes indeed we are getting into winter here now and with the drop in temperatures this week they probably aren't many left now.

Very nice images, Martin. My favorites are the lovely first poppy and the terrific crow image. Very rare I would pick a crow, but the exposure, detail, perch and composition are top notch.

Jim


Thanks Jim.
Yes the Crows seldom get first pick Jim so your kind and detailed comments are even more appreciated.

Beautiful colors in the poppies, Martin and I like your choice of DOF in the last poppie.
A well exposed crow as well

First, that Crow shot is spot on Martin, outstanding blacks buddy!

Poppies look wonderful, rich in color and nice in texture and a fine job with the 'double' shot and well done on the fading flowers.

Karl


Hi Karl and thanks for the nice comments.
Glad you liked the Crow.
