This is the place to post your very own photos of hols, scenes, wildlife and all things of interest. Accompanying descriptions and information, plus general photography chat are very welcome (but NOT so keen on 'just chat').

All the new camera owners --- get your pics in here. Pics from phones, point and shoots, bridge cameras, and D/SLRs - post them here and tell us about them. There's hardly anything as good as seeing that one in a hundred pic on your screen and we love them all.

This is our 9th year of 'the photo thread' but we love to see pics by new people so please don't be shy. If your pic is pro quality then ...brilliant .... but if it's a phone pic of your much loved dog then that's brilliant as well.

Not sure about something? You might find the answer in posts #1 – 9.

In the latest layout, there is the great list of liked photos etc in the Top Comments section - to get to the info posts you need to scroll past the Top Comments to the All Comments section i.e. the thread!!! lol .....

INDEX:

#1 How to post a pic

#2 Monthly competition info - there are RULES , but no prizes!

#3 Software for editing & resizing

#4 Useful photography sites

#5 Links to old threads and summaries

#7 Misc

#9 monthly winners

# 10 2016 winner of 'best of the best 2016'

If, by any chance, you want constructive (ONLY constructive!) criticism and don't mind on what aspect of your photo it is based then type RIA (Rip it apart) next to it. If you are looking for specific feedback, then ask for that. If you want advice on how to do something then just ask!

PLEASE NOTE- the photos in this thread have been posted by the people who took them and they are very kindly sharing. Please ask if you have a specific reason for copying and don't 'use' them without permission.

Photo-contributors, if you don't want to risk your image being copied, then it's not a bad idea to post a low resolution photo, it won't look as good on screen as a high res. one but it will be pretty useless for commercial etc purposes.

The alternative, for lovely high res pics, is to watermark them in some way. Be careful though with watermarking, as we can't have business names or some-such that could be construed, in any way, as business names/self-promotion on HUKD. Anything doubtful in any way will be deleted. A watermark would generally be across the image, in order to render it useless to someone copying it.

Intro...

1. I took over this thread from Chesso and I am trying to keep it a fun thread but the primary goal of the thread is to post photos, be you amateur or a professional and amaze us with your skills. Some posters ask for constructive criticism which is fine. We welcome everyone, every level and every style. We've all had to start from somewhere and those that are very good at their art, I have found to be encouraging in this thread to those who ask questions and want to take up photography. I hardly post photos as I don't have any confidence but having a new camera, I hope to start learning about it and participating more.

2. The monthly comp is a fun thing we do. It's always good natured and there are no prizes. The winner gets to pick the theme for the next month. I am going to use January as an example of how it it is run.
2nd-30th Jan - anyone can post photos on here and they can be liked by anyone and there is no restriction on likes. It can be to do with the theme or just a random pic or series of pics that you have taken and want to share.
31st Jan (last day of the month) - comp entry day. This day is set aside for posting your entry for the monthly competition. Please mark it as 'My Entry'. It needed to have been taken during the month of January and should be relevant to the theme. You could have posted it already through January or saved it for the comp. NO LIKES of these entries are to be done on that day otherwise they will not be counted on voting day.
1st Feb - voting day. This is the day that you can vote on the competition entries. You have a max of 3 votes and you do not need to use all 3. Voting finishes at midnight then I count the votes, check exif data to make sure it was taken in January, make sure that no one has voted more than 3 times then announce the results. The winner, gets to choose February's theme and I amend the title. You can now go back and like any of the other comp entries if you so wish.

3. Memes, jpegs, gifs - I don't mind people posting these. What I don't want is this thread to be just a chat thread with endless memes, gifs, etc. There are plenty of other threads in HUKD for that. The odd one is fine.

4. The Photo Thread is mainly for photos, chat about cameras/accessories, help on how to get the best in a certain situation and anything else to do with photography. As I took it over from Chesso, I want to keep it true to her vision of it. Some banter is fine but I don't want page on page of off topic banter, again there are plenty of threads in HUKD to do this on. There are posters on here who have been on here for years and help keep this thread going every year. I wouldn't want it to die a death. It's one of the few good natured threads that has gone on for years. No bitching, trolls, agendas, cliques, etc. It's why I agreed to keep it going.

Finally....enjoy yourselves in this thread.

If I have missed anything out, I will add to this. I'm going to ask to get this pinned so newbies can read it. Please do read the pages at the beginning of this thread.

#2 Competition info

Monthly theme and competition is entirely optional!! Post your pics of anything on all but the competition day..

There are RULES but no prizes

Post as many pics as you like on the theme in the thread during the month, as well as any other photos, of course.

Theme pics posted anytime during the month but only ONE comp pic.

The competition entry photo must be one taken during that month. Post pic for competition usually on the last day of the month. If there is a change to it being the last day of the month, it will be flagged in the thread title.
Vote by max of 3 likes per voter. Anyone can vote, only one like for each of 3 photos. Voting is on the first day of the next month and only votes on that day will count.

So e.g. take a photo in January; post it on the 31st January. Vote on 1st February.

Winner chooses the theme for the next month.

Could you mark your entries as 'My Entry' to make it clear what are for general viewing and what are for the competition.

I went out on Saturday with the intention of doing some long exposures on the shore line as it was bad weather.. and when I arrived i realised the step up filters i ordered hadnt arrived and as such couldnt attach my ND filters to anything but the 45-200 so I ended up walking around Tenby, but got some nice shots..

But i realised how nice it was to fit everything in my shoulder bag, and not have any weight and just carry the camera in one hand...

I was a bit scared of switching in case I didnt get on with it.. but I feel I have done the right thing now and very pleased..

I have replaced most of my lenses, need to sort out a macro lens and possibly a wide angle, although I never really used my wide angle very much previously so might not bother.

the 20mm 1.7 is a stunningly good little lens, people complain about the speed, unless you doing sports which I can't understand on a 20mm prime, then I am not sure why they would want it so fast?

So in summary yes, loving the new toy lol.

1st Week of the year about half an hour before sunrise I went out in our back garden and the sky was angry black with clouds barely above the roof tops, it calmed a bit by the time I got my camera but for a brief second it appeared as if a funnel was forming. Thankfully we (or rather I) dodged a bullet as about 5 minutes after the clouds passed over an almighty thunderstorm broke out.
