    I entered these 3 shots in the Digital Photo Nature and Animals round

    One of them came second, winning me a Canon G6! :D

    I dont know which one won though, will have to wait till the mag comes out.

    3rd time ive been in the mag, second in the competition, means i have 100 points and in the top 10 again! :D

    HUGE thanks to MattE off thephotographyforums.com,
    without his tutorial on post processing none of this would have happened, so Thanks Matt! :clap: :clap:

    Not an expert, by any means. But I'm going to guess at the second one. Because of the water droplet.

    Had to be the Eagle - the water drop made it.

    What camera did you use ? - Any post processing ?

    These pics are wonderfull - something for us all to aspire to whether it be with a DSLR or a good high end compact.

    shot on 300d with sigma 70-300mm super macro APO, i cant remember what focal length

    the post processing was levels, lab colour sharpening and that was it, otherwise as it came off the camera, full tutorial on the methods used in processing are on my site in the tutorials section :cool:
