    jeeponly's picture of the lake obeys all the rules and shows that you don't need a fancy pancy camera to take great pics...

    The dig the photo of the duck eating the frog. Not only it unusual but it also captures the event perfectly! Cool stuff!

    Dankie Bongani. As ek vir die skoonma moes se om uit die pad te kom het ek dalk moeilikheid op hande gehad, maar ek stem saam - die foto sou beter gewees het sonder mense in die agtergrond

    I agree Bongani. The morning when I took the two photos from Hogsback was a major motivation for me to get a decent macro lens. Now all I need is another morning like that one.

    Macro lenses are a bastard when it comes to depth of field... small appature and you will have a flys eyes in focus and its ears out!!!

    On that subject I have the Sigma 7-300mm macro... good lense and cheap.

    Ek hou van die een van die twee hinas, maar dis net 'n bietjie hinderlik dat die pad so vertikaal deur die foto loop. 'n Pad wat diagonaal of selfs horisontaal deur die beeld loop, maak ltyd 'n beter foto... Maar hulle l darem baie lekker!

    Di een is so blou, dit lyk eintlik soos 'n onderwaterfoto! 8) Net jammer van daai voertuig se skaduwee.

    Apparently bullfrogs are big on catching duck chicks, so I guess this is a case of continuing the war between ducks and frogs...

    It's a hibiscus. Nice focus!

    Die blou lug is die rede hoekom ek van daai foto hou, maar ek weet nie hoekom die een so blou uitgekom het nie, want die ander foto's wat ek net link en regs van die een geneem het, is die so blou nie

    I'm a total amateur when it comes to photography. Just what makes a better photo? Biggles, I thought that microlite photo looks great. What would have made it better?

    I took these in the Postberg Nature Reserve on Friday. The last one is a panorama of seven images stitched together.

    Couple of reasons but the biggest is the Auto White Balance. If you switch the digicam on with the lense cap on then the auto white balance use the black lenscap to create the setting for the auto white. During this period and before re-adjustment the photos comes out with a blue tint. The auto white balance however quickly realize the its white is wrong and will auto adjust it accordingly resulting in the other photos not ending up so blue.

    Anyways, that is just one reason of many but the most likely!
