Some brilliant pictures here once again.
I'm getting to grips with my new dslr, and started an 8 week photography course with the same guy that i've had a couple of days out and lessons with in the past.
It's strange being asked to 'think' about composition, when it's something that i've never done. I take pictures as i see them. I didn't realise that others follow 'guidelines' to make their pictures work..........and that's just lesson 1.
its hard to get to grips with for something isnt it
i am in same boat got a few friends who are showing me things as i am terrible at picking things up from books.
You tube is a great help as well.
but its fun and getting out and snapping images whilst learning is a good thing.

with wildlife i don't really have time to think about composition ,its just a matter of grabbing the shot as the moment occurs ,the time for composition is in p/p when any cropping cloning enhancing is all dealt with .
my view is that although digital photography is unlike film you still work along the same credo as you would in a darkroom ,your basically creating a art form and most things are possible .
i don't set out to alter to much but sometimes needs must ,i.e in my last photo of the mandarin duck walking towards me can you see where there was originally another duck behind it and also another in front of it.hopefully i have removed them effectively ,if they had been left in the photo would have lost all impact .

LOL glad you got it sorted, I went out last night to the dark site but it clouded over so never bothered to set up the scope. It did clear a bit later but seeing wasn't great so just tried some widefield shots with a lens.
