    Default Hope this encourages newbies

    Just want to share this piece of good news with those of you who are new to the hobby....
    Congratulations to Daredevil123 for having one of his images featured in The Telegraph UK newspaper for being one of the selected Pictures of the Day 23 June 2014

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/pict...?frame=2951505

    The admirable thing about Dd123 is that he does not use the most expensive equipment that money can buy ...... instead, he works with what he has to its limits and invests in no small amount of sweat and tears in his passion

    Congratulations Mr dd123! It is an amazing picture. And it's a wonder how it made it all the way across the seas to the United Kingdom.

    My picture was spotted from one of the social media sites and was requested to be represented by a news/photo agency recently.

    Congrats Albert,
    I have been enjoying your wildlife thread.
    Perhaps to inspire others,(but only if you wish) to share here, how the shot was taken, particularly the amount of time and preparation goes to create this shot.

    Not for me to imitate though, I will stick to admire the photos.

    Cheers.

    Congrats! It's really a nice shot without using so called expensive equipment.

    Newbies must learn that equipment only contribute 20% to the final pic taken.

    No point wearing Beckham's boots and can't kick a straight ball
