    Well only part photoshop. I had my camera set to only show the colour red, photoshop was used to get rid of the red things in the background.

    Thanks guys!!

    Shot 1
    I like it! Best of the 4 I think. Personally I would take shots in full colour in the camera, then you can add maskes, remove colours etc in editing later - that gives you the full shot to work with - the same is for black and white, take a colour shot then edit in editing.
    I like the use of selective colouring in this shot to help hide away the background and show up the rose in more detail - you could also try blurring the background in camera - though you would have to move the rose so that the background was a lot further away and then shoot - that would natually blur the background and make it less attentiongrabbing whilst allowing it to remain in colour

    Shot 2
    you wasted a good cricket on a frog - and didn't take photos of the cricket???? ;)
    As for flash interesting to hear, generally I have seen repitls pay no attention to flash at all, frogs similar, the flash didn't bother them - my lens and feet though did.
    I like the shot - good and close, though your focus has caught is back rather than eyes - eyes are important. I guess in that shot he was moving forward which made things tricky!

    Shot 3
    Tripod tripod tripod - I like the shot as you have a good exposure for a longer shutter speed. Often these shots are done in the evening when light is softer, though they can work during the day if you get a good amount of shade. But you need a good steady support

    Shot 4
    Trees are hard to compose - really hard I find
    And er -- your camera is tilting again ;)

    Good works alchy! :)

    Sometimes it is too much work to just use photoshop :p that's why I use that setting. And since it has that setting might as well use it.

    Bah on the cricket, the toad is priority. Yeah, I was trying to get his eyes to be the focus but he was not very cooperative.

    I believe you have said all you can about my tilted angles, :p they will not stop! muahaha :D
