I don't know if you still remember me. My name is Shailesh Patel and I was the person who guided you during your birding trip to Kenya in September 2005.

Hi - Andrew,
Very much enjoyed your website, especially your bird photos.
Many years ago, I was also a very keen bird photographer lugging around a Nikon 600mm lens with a F4 body. These days it's an M9 and 35mm Summilux.
Keep the good work up.

Very Jealous of your 800mm!!!!
Hi, Very impressed by your bird photos. Wouldn't mind exhibiting some in my office. Thanks for letting me in your space. John Ma
Fantastic bird galleries; Very well done.
I'll see if I can find you one! Seriously, thanks for dropping by.
I feel like an amateur when I look at your stuff.
Good observation for brid life! Good use of tele lens!
Good stuff Andrew, particularly the bird photos as many others have commented. I empathise hugely with your comment about seeing other people's work and wanting to delete our own, but then again we all see great things in other's and are our own worse critics. If this is your hobby then you must be ace at your job. All the best Chris
Thanks Stuart. Wales is of course infinitely better than ANY other country so why takes scenics when you have a country full of coal tips to treasure and there are birds to be photographed abroad!
Well done Andres! Keep up the good work and looking forward to see more!
haven't been here in a while. glad to see some more galleries. as always, i learned some new bird names and that a marathon looks painful...:-)
Looked through your site. Good work! Ken.
Thanks for visiting my galleries again. Regarding the SUN with iso1600 photo, it was changed from RAW to jpeg using DPP2.1 with noise reduction setting at "low". The image was then resized and sharpened (normally) with PS. From my experience, underexposure is the key factor which leads to noise in high ISO photos.
Hi again, I just wanted to say thanks for your helpful comments on
This shot was taken before I really knew how the camera worked, and I didn't know how to use Photoshop well enough to get quite the shot I'd hoped for. I still don't quite know how the camera works but I'm getting used to it (I often forget at the time of the shot that I can change so much to get the perfect shot) and I'm getting much better with Photoshop. I have to remember to go back to those hawk shots and work with the shadow/highlight sliders. Thanks again for the comments, it's nice to receive a comments that's truly helpful. "Nice shot" makes me feel good but it doesn't tell me what I could improve upon... so thanks. Oh, and I've taken a peak at your galleries, you have some nice shots in there. Keep it up. Cheers, Kate
Hi, Thank you very much for your kind comments. I really appreciate it. I hope you will check up on me at a later date to see how I've improved. Cheers, Kate
Thanks for your comments. I also find that lamppost a bit obstructing.
For the shopping mall shot, it was a handheld shot. I seldom use tripod (too lazy).
Merry X'mas and Happy New Year.
The correct link to Hong Kong Observatory's regional weather page should be
Thanks for your kind words and comments again.
It has become rather rare to have a clear day (visibility over 15 km) in HK. You may keep an eye on the wind direction and visibility reports from the Hong Kong Observatory
Northerlies are usually no good. Southerlies or southeasterlies in the summer should give you a chance to see more.
Don't give up man ! You will see a blue sky one day.
Thanks for visiting my gallery. Your galleries on birds and wildlife are also attractive too. Shall come back from time to time to check for your latest nice works.
Congratulations on creating this gallery, Andrew! This is truly a great start and I look forward to seeing more of your nature photography works here ...
Welcome to my gallery. I do not profess to be a geat or even a good photographer but I try hard within the limits of the time I have available! This is for enjoyment only but all constructive comments are welcomed.
