Digital Photgraphy Review challenges ...

I don’t know if anybody else follows the challenges on the dpreview website? I go there quite often for inspiration as well as just to see some exceptional photos.

Currently there are some challenges that have recently finished that are relevant to us here …

Some of those birds are not native to Hertfordshire, let alone my birth town of Grantham.

Jane, I believe that you and I could match most of those photographs given almost constant sunshine, devastating scenery and exotic wildlife.

Recently, while uploading some pictures to flickr, I happened across albums by at least a couple of ispyabird members and regular contributors that were a match for the challenge links.

Thanks John..I hadnt thought of it like that. I do know that the quality of photos by members of Ispy (yours included) are brilliant and I never tire of browsing them all.Love the wildlife ones too..they add another dimension to the site I think...
