I am not an artist but but have dabbled with wood, clay, and paint over the years andand of course photography. My aim with the camea is to only use photo editing programmes to ‘tweak’ the photo, is a fraction too dark or light, to to crop and occasionally slight sharpen to highlight a particular feature.
RedBubble is inspiring,and when I see the quality of all the art produced by its members I realise how much I have to learn.

    Excellent capture – really sharp and the movement of the wings is very defined – well done, Greybeard

  • Thank you for commenting Mathilde, I seemed to have got the focus and timing right, for once, Terry
