Photographers...

There must be dozens of great photographers on here and I'm definitely not one of them.
There are two photos published elsewhere on here that I particularly like but I won't link to them and spoil it. Perhaps the photographers themselves could add them to this thread as well?
There is one photo that I took some time ago which more by accident than judgement turned out OK. We were taking the kids to North Wales with our 12 seater Kidmobile at the time and had to make yet another comfort stop. I was using an old Praktica 35mm SLR manual camera.

Well, that's my best shot. What's yours?

It's a macro shot of the pollen grains on the stigma of this flower.

Blimey, where shall I begin.

Well here's one of two chaps sitting on a bench in the town of Montalcino, Italy, minding their own business and having a nice day until yours truly turns up pointing a Canon lens in their faces. On a more serious note, the subjects interested me and the deal for being able to take their photograph was that they took mine using a mobile phone. Twelve months later, we returned to Montalcino intending to give these fellas a copy of the photograph only to find after an hour of walking every side street in the place, that the fella on the left had passed away.

We were staying in StMartin near Rosas in a rented apartment called
"The Farm" I was out and about very early when a great stream of goat/sheep
started to pour through the huge garden.
Next thing i knew there was a very small grizzled Spanish shepherd standing
next to me saying good morning (in spanish of course) I took his photo from
waist height without bringing the camera to my eye. We had coffee and he
chatted away until he decided to follow the last of the sheep/goats.
When I had the slides developed I saw the two Wolves he had sitting by his side,
they were really wolflike, huge fangs and that half a step removed from the wild
look.

This post is useless without the picture you said you took...

I'm no photographer but I thought I would post a photo of my favorite place on earth, which is looking down on the lake at Tal y Llyn from the slopes of Cader Idris in Southern Snowdownia. I only have this picture, looking down the A487 towards the lake, which isn't quite the same. Of all the places I have visited in the world, Wales remains my favourite, so its a good job I live close to the Welsh border!

Here are some views from the same place with a bit more movement https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qFNuNPL-Yk

Zitat
Nice photo Neville



Thanks, for a shot like that it needs a prime lens fitted on backwards on the front of the camera lens and studio lights, a tripod and a self timer to steady the camera while the shot is taken.

A prime lens looked through from the front makes a great magnifier but not zoom lenses.
