    Hi, as per title and hopefully on theme for the comp ,when curlews have juveniles around they teach them the art of flying into safe ground ,they then emulate what the adults do ,they have little spells were they spend a good hour showing them ,they did spend most of the time in the field opposite to were I wanted to try for the backlit shot ,however the chance eventually came [​IMG]Backlit curlew AV 1 by dennis greenwood, on Flickr

    True, I can't see the EXIF in Flickr either. Maybe you have set it private?

    A bit off topic but I went to the Flickr view and two pictures to the right is a lovely shot of a redshank.

    Yes and that too was shot on June 8th - so EXIF isn't viewable but taken date is ;)

    yes - but whilst I'm not doubting it, that's not the exif, or is it? - However, to determine a photo's legitimacy to rule #2 exif must be left embedded in the image alternatively link to the original image with EXIF available hosted elsewhere - e.g. Flickr, Photobucket etc.else the photo may be disallowed.

    Yes but my understanding of the "Taken On" date displayed by Flickr is that it's extracted from the EXIF and hence should suffice ? - after all I can't see a shot being excluded on any other grounds from the EXIF than an invalid shooting date - can you - as much as I'd like to see any Canikon shots ruled out.... ? :D

    I guess I'm a bit like Snerkler in that I like to see what was used and how it was used as well.

    Jim, certain kind of editing can change the taken-date on a photo. For example if I use Paint to edit my photo, it can completely F up the exif data on it, including the date. Has been known to happen. However, saying this does NOT mean I in any way shape or form doubt Dennis as in when the photo was taken. This is just conversation that on my part has nothing to do with his photo.
