    Konica Hexar, XP2 and a red filter - the only colour I have. They came out needing a little TLC with PP in Nik, otherwise I didn't think they were worth sharing. So, look upon these as a mixture of film and digital.

    Saw these on Flicky and felt an instant wow factor. Like these a lot , the fist and last for me. Super superb images Rob.

    Thanks, Julian. You are always supportive of my fumblings. I wasn't sure about that last one, but had a look at it again after your comment. The bird top right is just magnificent. Very pleased the way that turned out.

    I like the chaos and shimmering water in number one, Rob, and I like the tones of the sky in three with the birds so brightly in contrast. Excellent!

    I continue to try to get the motion of flight that I see...you get what I mean and see. I'll just put away that thought and get back to learning how to crochet.

    Thanks, guys. It was a great few moments, with the birds swirling all around me.

    @Glenn Clabo - nothing wrong with a bit of crocheting, Glenn. I'd give you a musical pun around the word crotchet and crochet, but it would be wasted on Americans, yet oh so funny to Europeans...:rolleyes:

    If you want birds swirling - just turn up with a bag of chips... :)

    The still capture of the top right bird in the second is for me the balance and strength.

    Thanks. The second image has some really interesting shapes from the birds. Such posers!

    Got it back?! And some more. These are nothing short of brilliant Rob. That first is just an amazing creation. :)

    And you managed to get the lens cap off before snapping the foties. You're firing on all cylinders again, Rob! :)
