    G'day Brian

    Your slides have kept their colours well over these many years ... and the 'good ol' Nikkor stuff' still shows its quality
    As to the birds, they seem like many parents - hiding the chicks and taking care as they come out to feed

      Nice work on these. Colors look really good.
      Canon 7D Mark II, EF-S 10-22mm, EF-S 18-135mm STM, EF 100-400mm II L, EF 100mm L Macro, EF-S 24mm STM, EF 50mm II, and a random assortment of 35mm film cameras.

        I'm impressed - bird photography with film and manual focus. I only ever tried a couple of bird photos on film when the opportunity appeared - I never went looking for them.

        Are these scans of negatives - the colours look really good.

            good to go back older stuff and see that they still in good order.
            manual focus is how we used to do it back than
            autofocus has opened up whole new worlds of possibilities though.
            not to mention the instant gratification of digital.
            back then you had to know what you were doing.
