Hey everyone,

This thread is for amateur photographers to post up their pictures. Please make sure the pictures you upload have been taken by you and do not break any of the Forum rules. Also, please only post photos taken in spare time - nothing professional or work related. I dont want this to turn into a thread hosting advertising for photographers or showing off portfolios.

Perhaps some sort of template would be helpful when posting pictures. Something like this under each picture:

Taken on: (Camera model + Lens + Filters etc)
Date: (dd/mm/yyyy)
Location: (Doesnt have to be too specific)
Edited?: (Y/N - Photoshop etc)

Feel free to add any other comments such as specific settings you used to achieve certain effects. Please keep comments friendly and constructive, I cant wait to see everyones pictures :blink:

Wow these shots are great!

@Mad Season: Nice eclipse :P

@XPD: Thats a beautiful shot. Im trying to become a macro photographer without a macro lens..Hopefully I will be able to afford the ~$800 or so that I need for the lens I want soon! Where abouts is butterfly creek btw?

Try not to double post, just post a pic every now and then and please no work related shots for reasons explained in the first post.

Thanks :D

That was just using the built in macro mode on the camera with nothing else. I got some nice shots that day, using that method, of butterflies etc. Butterfly Creek is out at Auckland Airport, they have the butterfly house, alligators, 2 very large crocs and a small farm setup for petting zoo etc. Good place to kill a few hours :)

Im so excited about the possibilities with this camera. If i can get pretty decent shots with very little experience and a kit lens then once I have some knoweledge and am armed with a macro lens the possibilities will be endless!

I highly recommend the summit walk on Rangitoto island. It really is a beautiful walk with amazing views before you even get near the top! And theres some old lava caves to explore plus alot of nice bush blending native flora and introduced species. Great place to take photos too, I spent so long trying to get a good photograph of the blackbirds and thrushes that were moving through the bush all around us but they're so alert its hard to get close.

Taken on: Canon 550D + Kit lens
Date: Nov 2010
Location: Rangitoto Island (Just before the summit!)

Ok let me re-iterate my original post. No professional work means no photos from your work portfolio. This is a thread for amateur photographers to post their pictures, not professionals to advertise their work. No watermarks and no work related pictures!

Here's a couple (five, actually) of shots I've taken on Dad's Canon 1000D.

The big snow that caused Stadium Southland's roof to collapse a few hours earlier taken north of Invercargill (18/9/10):
default 18-55 mm IS lens
resized and cropped in Photoshop

(I took some others too, one of which is better but according to Dad it is too good to put on here.)

A couple of birds on our lawn that I can't identify:
75-300 mm lens
28/3/11
Resized, cropped, sharpened and put together in Photoshop
Attached File  Birds___sharpened_sm.jpg   111.29KB   2 downloads
Mostly here to see if someone else can identify them. The top two are the same bird, and the bottom two are once again the same bird, but a different one to the top one.

The back of the necks on the left hand side pictures are pretty distinguishable.

Yes, but I couldn't find anything in my book of NZ birds like these. They've got wings that look like the house sparrow (they're about that size, too), but they've got the neck like you mentioned and the spotted breast like a song thrush, so they should be easy enough to identify.
