Peter,
Congratulations on this achievement, and good luck with the pointy end of the judging.
Well deserved and well done.

Congratulations, though the image doesn't seem to be working for me. Perhaps I'm the only one though?

Thanks everyone, for those who couldn't see it, and instead of going through the rigmarole of re-posting, it was a screen shot of an email from Sony asking me to send the original RAW files for two of my shots that had been short listed for the 2021 Sony Alpha awards. Was feeling a bit chuffed that was all...

The screenshot showed up just fine here. You can see it, Joe can see it, I can see it - maybe the image can't travel further than 25km until midnight tonight.

I am reminded about these awards all the time through other social media - mostly through the local Alpha groups on the F place. We have a few regular keen entrants who do some fine work, so congratulations on the shortlisting.
For sale - various A-mount lenses

Well definite congratulations then, great work! Good luck in the next round of judging (and do share the pics if you're allowed)

Thanks Adam, Simon and Fred. Yes that's what the problem was Adam' how stupid of me not to realise that it was only viewable within a 25km radius although I suspect Joe would have been just outside that

Simon the two shots were of my favourite 'flying bullets'. Although the majority of Dyxumers preferred another shot when I asked "which one" I went with this one after thinking more when reading the comments from @Roger Rex so thanks Roger!!
Called it 'spilled a drop'

And the second 'I'll race you'



They don't look their best here but at 6000pix or whatever it was the're quite sharp and surprisingly when converted to Adobe RGB as requested the colours really popped especially the warm colours in the race.

Thanks Neil, I seem to be building up quite an arsenal of these swallow shots and they all look to be very much the same now so hard to choose one...
