Loving the captured cat photo, lovely colours and the serious expression, great stuff!
On the spur of the moment I decided to try and capture water filled balloons bursting and this was one of the misses with the balloon still to 'burst' still in flight as it were - here was the set-up N.B. my son wishes to point out the the wellies are his mums;
the blue area is the background (right) the dark area is my helpers shadow (left) as he fell off the stepladder a bit of Photoshop to clone out the knot in the balloon and add lens flare and there you have it. Here's one that was captured as it burst;
not an overly successful attempt, couldn't really stop down enough to negate the ambient light to give a good 'freeze' and still had trouble with my helpers shadow getting in the picture, but good fun!
Very creative Paul !
Thank you very much TK.
For the titles I try to use such that describe/explain the photos emotionaly.

That’s a great photo Mark . We have some very territorial Blackbirds in our garden, always fighting for space. I have a strange female who comes up to me in the morning, probably to see if I have any fresh worms when gardening. I have a plastic bird table in the rear garden, and a rather not very bright blackbird has made a nest in the middle of it . I hope to get a picture of it, if it ever stops raining, three days solid, and its still raining now.
Some phone shots, just for fun.
This Instagram app is great, people roll their eyes at it, but it makes camera phone shots useable and that's a good thing IMO
bloody delighted to see all the creativity creeping in above. No eye rolling for any of it. Any method to get something unique is fine by me!
WTF are 'incense owls'?
Its cute pets time on the wam....

Excellent shots Phil, great vision spotting them. I must raise my game!

You have a great 'eye' for pattern and detail
Well captured shots, you've a keen eye ok! I like.
Phil, these are truly great!
Very good Phil, the last two being my favourites.

Not been doing much photography of late due to family stuff and decorating and building work (nearly finished ) Complete revamp of my listening room too which has meant not as much music recently too Anyway, some great stuff guys, keep it up !
