A feather caught on a twig.

lovely picture Ellie - how dare you keep it from us for a week or so smile
EJWilkins: Hi Ishbel, I didn't upload it straight away because, although I was really pleased with the detail the picture seemed to lack 'something' and I don't know what, maybe the framing or the angle of the feather. No matter how I tried to turn it, it still didn't seem right. But, As for the detail, I was thrilled.
This has great detail, but the colors make the shot for me. Very nice!
EJWilkins: Thanks Martin, these green/yellow seem most unusual but they're accurate. I think they seem to make the background glow. Glad you like the picture smile
Well defined pic Ellie.

Lovely. I like how soft yet sharp the feather is!
EJWilkins: That's what pleased me most Ian, especially as it was very windy.
Very sweet picture smile
Sublime I think the word is, but for some reason this does not work for me and I can't for the life of me put my finger on why. Sorry sweet one. J
EJWilkins: I actually agree with you Johnny, it doesn't 'do' a lot for me either, although I was so pleased (delighted) with all the detail in the feather.

Well caught Ellie, you must have excelled in badminton at some stage. Beautiful fluffy detail
EJWilkins: Thanks Louis, I was really chuffed with the detail. As for badminton ... no, not something I've ever been able to play particularly well, it must have been somebody else! tongue

One of your best Ellie. I love the detail captured in the shot
EJWilkins: Than you Mia, I was really pleased with the detail too smile
Wonderfully detailed macro shot Ellie. I love the contrast of the white feather against the green background.

There's some kind of fairie magic here, Ellie, for sure. Look at how wispy the bottom half of the feather is. Who did THAT!! It reminds me of ribbons I will unravel sometimes to get the same kind of look. But this is magic! And I LOVE that mossy/olive green background against the white! Very, very lovely.
EJWilkins: Aha, so it was the Leprechauns?
lovely subject Ellie!
Stunning! Great how the softness of the feather comes out!smile

What curious green thing? smile
EJWilkins: I didn't mean a green 'thing' grin I meant the colour It's a dusty sort of yellow/green, and I thought quite unusual.

Actually Chris, I agree with Johnny, the picture doesn't really 'do' anything for me either. I wonder if it's the framing. Nothing I seemed to do with it was 'right'. What's your honest opinion?

Pretty tangle in the pen with a great resistance of color.

Magic Nature Mother... Nice shot Ellie
I like the simpleness but it lacks something.

Lovely detail ellie. perhaps rotating the image so that the tip of the feather filler the top right hand corner may have changed it a bit for you. nice
I like it too. I am also fan of this delicate little things.
