Olympus OM 50mm f1.4 Kea in Budapest Zoo

This guy never get this close to anyone from visitors.It was a very nice moment. She was my favorite bird in zoo and soon later was killed by a snake as zoo published (I don't believe it..)
Nikon-Micro Nikkor 200mm f4

I always love to make captures from frogs look at this eye isn't a magnificent one ?
Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 75mm f1.5 M42

I just catch the moment...

I remember the bird photo... your best one of the year, incredible colours, can I say it even seems like drawing art?
this one deserves to go on to National Geographic cover.

And... I'm sad for the guy. Sad

Frog also very good capture in difficult situation. Also probably behind a glass isn't it?

Your daughter's portrait proves why I keep repeating that you are the best portrait taker in this group, and that you really have a talent for making your models feel comfortable and look natural. Which is in my opinion the most difficult aspect of taking portaits - much more than any technical aspect.

Thank your for your nice words! Yes, frog was behind glass.

Ballu nice shots! The one of the space needle is fun. You are lucky to have it. The ferris wheel down at the bottom will be removed soon. It was put in place in 1962 for the worlds fair. Now the city of Seattle will remove the fun park from Seattle center because it loses to much money. The space needle of course gets to stay. Cool

SMC Takumar 50 1.4

From the village of Fiskars - I really like the B/W feeling in the photo even it isn't B/W photo Smile


And finally Attila this is for you... It's not from year 2007... I took it in 2006 when
we where in Tunisia.

Canon EF 70-200 4L

I like the colors of the bird and the bokeh with the same color space... Smile
Decided to put it here because I feel that you like these birds Smile

Well, bluesky is not so exciting here, we've 335 sunny days per year Wink. Clouds are exotic, and snow, a rarity...
Best regards,
Jes.

Great shots, guys!

I can't decide which of mine were the three best shots. So I do not post at the moment. Confused

i only really started photography this year, so some of my shots aren't the best, but these are probably my 3 favorites.....

Sigma 10-20mm f4 @20secs



Tamron SP90 f2.5 @1/200



Tamron SP90 f2.5 @1/160 ISO800

And you are a beginner?
Ok, when you will not be a beginner anymore, and earning tenths of thousands, please don't forget about me! Laughing

Laughing Laughing thanks Orio, you are too kind!! Having to use the 90mm Tamron on manual helped me learn how to use the camera a lot quicker! Even with newer AF lenses I still use M mode, just find it easier now!
