It was really an interesting sight. I didn't expect the owl to gulp down the whole chicken. Here's another shot, taken a few seconds before the first picture:

That shot is oddly fascinating, PKIDelirium. What in the world is going on there? A show of some sort, I presume, but what?

I love those shop window photos, Chinney. The light, the odd contents, the colours. You should do a series and put up a web gallery.

GOLDFRAPP: post more often!

Here's a couple from a brief excursion out of Paris I made today.

Brooks and baguette, in Barbizon (shame the bags aren't old leather satchels, but opportunistic snappers can't be choosers!):





And strange little bars of coloured soap samples in Provins:

I spotted this scene on Sunday, and passed it again yesterday – this time with a camera.





It could be just me, but there's something curiously satisfying about those geometric shapes, the hotel breaking the symmetry before it becomes too much, and the sunlight revealing all those primary colours. It's supposed to be banal, but it fascinates me!

Bigger and therefore better version here.

We recently moved. At our new home, some trees had to be cut, so the local voluntary fire brigade came with this old tractor from 1956 to get the tree-cut.

Nice blue-yellow color contrast, Goldfrapp.

Here's a shot from yesterday. In northern germany, it is custom to make big bonfires on the Saturday before Easter Sunday.

Thanks for the compliments, guys. I've updated my original post with both edited and unedited versions of the photo so you could see the contrast as well as iPhoto capabilities.

Easter weekend in Lucerne, central Switzerland. Arriving from dull Geneva, this small town has a bunch on offer, including snow still.

Caught this little Fox Sparrow chowing down on something. Not sure if it was an insect or just vegetation.

Nice photos. AWR, that Transportation Museum facade reminds me of the view from the driver's seat when heading into Porte Maillot in Paris.

This is the Château de Mussegros, a seemingly abandoned manor in the Haute-Normandie region of France:



On the left is a tree-lined drive, which once upon a time might have looked like GSpotter's last photo. I walked up it a bit but I'll have to come back another time to photograph it properly.

In France, many grand properties are abandoned to the elements. I suppose there are more châteaux than people willing to pay for their upkeep. Very special buildings attract enough tourists to cover their costs, but many others are forgotten.

Faced with two subjects so differently spaced, I seem to have selected f/22 and focused on nothing in particular.

Those are evocative pics Dorian. Nicely done.

I love that particular shade of green captured in Gspotter's pic. You only see during a brief time in spring.

Hi all AN protographers.!

Still doing physics degree so not much photographing here at the moment, have bought a new camera though a Fuji HS20, I got less than half price, not too bad as long as I dont zoom in to 100%, but nice versatile camera with macro and 30x zoom to compliment my dSLR.

Well, in a few weeks I am off watch the Tour de France, have arranged to be at the high mountain stages in the Alps, then making my way down to the Pyrenees to catch the later stages there too...

...but wait, there are a couple of spare days...what better I thought than a visit to CERN!. So I emailed them, and holy crap, they let me in for the day!

This will be fun!

GSpotter, I think you should have blurred the background gardens more decisively. That would draw the eye faster to the upside-down version in the glass ball. (I know my gate lock photo is worse in this regard.)

I would like your choice of background blur more if the photo was displayed larger, because the blur would definitely look deliberate then.

How do you decide on an f-number when shooting that kind of thing? I'm often not sure how the depth-of-field will look in the photo, especially when I'm using a lens I don't know very well.

If you see any buttons, leave them alone, okay?

You know, in some universes I did press the button, I did create a black hole, and we did all get sucked in. And it is written that 2012 is the end of the world, and it is going to be Friday 13th when Im there...

so tips for shooting TDF. I am going to be on the Col de la Madeleine, taking my bike and cycling up it before the start, is it better to be shooting as they come up, or as they descend?

Me too I therefore often take several shots with different f-stops in these cases. This time, I was there with my wife on a garden fair, so I just took a quick shot. I wanted the stucture of the garden in the background to be recognizable, so I stepped down quite a bit (too much). Hmm, I think I might revisit this shot after upgrading to PS CS6...
