  1. I wouldn't use canned air either. It's too powerful and can leave propellant on the sensor. Best bet would be a rocket blower with a built in air valve that stops it getting dust inside. I use this one: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Giottos-GTAA1900-Rocket-Air-Blower/dp/B00017LSPI which you can also buy from camera shops such as Wex. If the bits are in the viewfinder you'll probably need to get it professionally cleaned to remove them.
  2. People critisicing family members parenting on an Internet forum seems to be a "modern age" thing...
  3. I tried a more extreme black and white but couldn't get a result I liked.
  4. It's interesting that they are so shy up there. I wonder if the shyness and rarity are related. Down here in Berkshire they are common and very tame too.
  5. Probably about as welcome as a fox visiting some chickens

  7. I rarely go mono for nature shots as a lot of the beauty is in the colour but there's nothing beautiful about this scene. I think it works OK in mono but I am not very experienced in mono editing. The only thing I like about the original colour photo was the action. The light was very harsh and the background was ugly, still I was pleased to capture the moment.
  8. Here's my attempt at a mono version.
  9. I was surprised to see the Magpie catch a live vole but like you said they do go after (young) birds so it's probably not unusual.

  13. I can imagine! That's one area where an EVF really helps.
  14. Fantastic shot Tillman. Love the light that's on the bird but not the background. Really makes it stand out.
