    That has some beautiful detail - scale really matters with nature photography doesn't it? I'd like to see what it looks like in black and white.

    Well, I'd normally be pressing the 'like' button but its disappearance is forcing me to stop being so lazy!

    I think it sharpens up the focus, making the background slightly more mute and more in keeping with what I'd expect from the title. However, the more I look at it, the more I appreciate the simplicity of the yellow and green hues in the original.

    Nice work, either way

    #3- How sad. Looks like a Dandelion gone-to-seed, but the young'uns never left the nest. They've lost their parachutes and are trapped, never to reach their potential. B.& W. Nice detail.

    The robin is stunning in its detail, Bloggs, really beautiful. On top of its head I almost see snowflakes, or possibly Zulus' shields.
    "I think a life is a plot. It's probably the elementary plot. I came across a quotation of Patrick White, the Australian writer, just about the time I needed it. He said he never bothers with plot. He just writes about life 'limping along toward death.' That made me feel much better, to keep this in my mind."

    Its a "design" you'll find everywhere in nature - If I'd cut out the eye and beak I could have changed the colour and it could have been seaweed, ferns, ice patterns on glass.
