  1. The new Azuma trains operating on the East Coast Mainline, England. What I like is how the 600mm compresses the whole length of the train into the image and how the light and shadow is best used to hi-lights the front of the train as it rushing towards you at near 130 m.p.h. Alan
  2. Two onto one. Mo's final push. Just what I needed.

  11. Now you have consumed all the Easter eggs 😀 and packed the Easter bunny away this is the last call for the April challenge. Alan
  12. Just a few days left to enter your images into this months challenge. Some great images already in. Have a good Easter. Alan
  13. Matt and Bill, All you need to do is to observe the subject, look for a pattern in their behaviour and to anticipate their next move. Look for a flight pattern of the bee and where it may hover before landing on the flower. With a bit of practice you can do it. I only spent about 1/2 Hr on this image and the one below. Nikon D850 / D5 with 105mm 2.8f macro lens set on auto focus which locks onto the bee quite quick. The only problem is the narrow depth of field shooting with this lens, you are only talking of a few mm., leading to parts of the bee being in focus others not. If the eyes are sharp you are nearly there. All the best. Alan
  14. Honey Bee flying towards flowering heather.
  15. Many thanks for all those who voted for my image and to those who participated in the March Challenge. It was a close run event and I was biting my hoofs, sorry nails up until the finishing line. Women's Role in Todays Society:- Its been over 100 years since women have been able to vote here in the U.K. and in that time they have faced many challengers even today things are still not equal. More needs to be done not only here but in other parts of the world to improve the life opportunities of women. So, lets see some powerful images of women in our society, for better or for worse. Normal rules - each contender can provide up to 3 images, all to be from Alamy. I shall be away at the end of this month so the closing date for entries will be Midnight on Tuesday 23th and all votes in by the 30th. Examples of my take on this theme are shown below.
  16. Like Ian, my traffic lights are on green to go and to carry on submitting Live News images. My main Live News images are from political events with some UK weather. The email points out to ensure that each batch of images (15 of the best) have the correct headlines & captions (headlines & Description in lightroom), date, time and aim to have them filed within one hour. My headlines and captions are pre-written and added to each image or batch after they have been culled and edited there by saving time. Sometimes it is difficult to stop shooting and upload your images because things do kickoff like the letter dropping on P.M. May's display or Jeremy Corbyn egg attack.
  17. Thanks Paulette for picking one of my images. I think its going to be a close horse race. Alan
  18. Several images in my post this morning mostly political. Labour M.P. Emily Thornberry speaking at a Labour Party Spring Conference. Alan
  19. Unlike these Tits I will not get fat off the licence from this image, but at least it was not peanuts. Alan
