    JRB350Z- can you crop in a little on the butterfly so there isn't as much green?

    S. Saqib Shams-II - I really like the color on this shot, and the detail on the two middle flowers. Also I think that you should crop out some of the space above the flowers but thats just my opinion.

    Also i see that you like to take a lot of Macro photography so i think that you would benifit from a macro lens. Tamron has THIS lens with a $100 rebate until the end of july and its supposed to be really good

    I noticed you're located in Cambrige. I am dying to come down to the Lake District to take some shots. Can you suggest me some nice places to stay please?
    I have just seen your post and Cambridge is a lot closer to London than the Lake district. Its a coincidence as I was thinking about going up to the lake district at the end of the month some time.
    I used to climb there a lot in my youth but had friends to stay with then so I need to find somewhere to stay myself now.
    The southern lakes tend to get a bit touresty and I used to stick to the northern ones. I can not remember any good photo points but I think Wasdale head ( good for a beer after winter walking and climb ) http://www.english-lakes.com/wasdale_head.html, striding edge ( quite exposed but not that photographic ) http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=str...w=1899&bih=907 and wast water http://www.visitcumbria.com/wc/wastwater.htm were interesting.
    An overview of the area from Wikki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_District
    You realy need a car to get around and some good footware if straying away from the roadside. I remember once coming down from a winter climb and there was a tourest coach up from Manchester with women tottering up the paths in high heel shoes and their sunday best!
    Try to avoid the school holiday times as well.

    Cheers mate! This shot was taken with a standard Nikkor 18-55mm VR lens with no filters. Also, I think I'd have to deal Macro shots with the current set of Macro lenses that I own, since I bought a new Sigma 18-250mm OS HSM Telephoto lens costing 320 alongwith a Fisheye (0.42x) wide angle lens by S. Bower. The ordeal has costed me about 400 earlier this week. I'm planning on being very careful with cash now.

    Thanks mate! I'll do my homework on the weekend, I hope I find out a good spot to take photos. Since I don't drive, I'd have to convince my brother on going with me.

    There we go, personally I like that one better but to each their own.

    Are you new to DSLR cameras? Because if you are you are doing a really good job.

    It's actually a crop already (I could crop more for web viewing), but I actually like the green contrast.

    Oh alright, well if you like it then keep it like that. I was just saying to crop it so that the butterfly would look larger and closer

    lots of hail came out of the sky on the left...

    possibly a tornado on the right exploding open at .04 seconds
