All looking a little bit too alive.These were in a field with some other cows, winter just gone they were free-roaming across the hills and onto the road - I bugger off when they got closer View attachment 580934View attachment 580935View attachment 580936View attachment 580937View attachment 580938View attachment 580939View attachment 580940View attachment 580941View attachment 580942View attachment 580943View attachment 580944
The ladies who showed us the cat were talking about this. Apparently two bibles have been found underneath the floorboards in different parts of the house, also shoes, to ward off witches. Which they say, is why it has a lovely atmosphere to work in.Yonks ago (before Victorian times I think) Cats were occasionally sealed under the floorboards of new houses, as a blood sacrifice to ward off evil spirits. Which is why people sometimes find them in old houses. In case you didn't know already
Thanks, I was about 10 ft away, at 400mm, 4f, 1/800, 200iso, hand held. I have a couple of tripods but don't use them much, though I will have to with a 1982, 1000mm F11, mirror lens I just got, hand held it with x2 extender, so 2000mm, F22, about 1/84. The photos were interesting, some might call them "Arty" but I would know the truth.A shallow depth of field is normal in macro photography. Something to do with physics (I'm a Geordie so obviously can't explain why).
A way around it is to use a tripod and take multiple exposures with your focus in different points and the magic of photoshop will combine the images to give you one with a greater depth of field.
You've done a decent job though.

Was with the 15/19th Hussars 72/74. I remember a guy had an L/P called "Learn yer self Geordie" very funny, only remember a few phrases now. "Divent drop yer dottle on the proggy mat".
