    Well blow me down, he's just sent me a lovely email telling me he will more than likely be using 'many' of my photos. Very little he could tell me by way of crit as well.
    Having seen how scathing he was in his email last night on the set that wasn't mine I'm genuinely speechless.

    I'll let you know how the project progress' but it should be a purchasable book.

    This was a version from a different county by the look. There are a few on there. Excited it may be purchasable through amazon !

    Absolutely

    I mean us looking at sir skywatcher's photos and saying we like them is one thing, but the crowd he's being assessed by now are seriously strict.

    The "bird in flight" crowd for example will happily look at your prize photo of a never before seen bird and tell you that its useless because there's a distracting twig in the distance, or the beak is slightly less sharp than the leading edge of the left wing.

    If you take a shot with the wings frozen in time, there's no movement. If you retake it with blur on the wings, that's too much blur or too little.

    They'll blow up the photo to beyond 100% to look at the pixels in the background and that's before they start looking at the bird itself only to comment that "it's not the best example of a lesser pimpled keith-hawk" as if we can pick and choose.

    I know you are your own worst critic sir skywatcher because you know I feel the same about my shots but honestly, I'm not at all surprised that they love your shots.
