Members' Blogs: A kick up the bum ......

......... and if I never see another bird again it will be too soon. Twisted Evil
Practice makes perfect as the saying goes - well perfect my photography will never be but practice does help improve.

First few shots with the DA 55-300mm lens were a total disaster or crap but after a lot of mind numbingly boring practice they have improved somewhat.

The following are examples of the stages of improvement.


Not quite so crappy;

Not too bad;

This is as good as I'm going to get Rolling Eyes ;

So, if at first you don't succeed keep bloody trying until you do.

Thanks for the kick up the backside Dr.O
