    Hi, I'm Glyn, I was into photography in the 80's but for some reason let it lapse. Bought a Samsung S1050 last year which started my enthusiasm all over again. I was so pleased with the results I bought a Nikon D80 at Xmas and have been clicking away ever since. I stated an online course a few weeks ago, I think there are one or two others on the same course on this forum as they were talking about the gray card test which i am doing currently, which is how I found this site when I googled "grey card test"
    perhaps some one can advise me about uploading pictures, what size do i need to reduce them to?etc
    anyway glad to be here

    Glyn.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the info Stuart.
    Keith thanks for the invite its something I will keep in mind. I was in Towneley park last Sunday with my camera, managed to bag a squirrel feeding, sat on a small arched bridge. Mainly I spend time round Clowbridge where I walk my dogs every day. Its spectacular up there in Autumn & Winter; once I have sorted this reducing size issue I will post a few.
    Quite a pleasant surprise really to local people on the site.

    Yes Anthony, but you can see my feeding squirrel, i've uploaded. It was very gloomy and I had my 70-300 zoom on but I got the image.

    thanks for the welcome

    Hi Keith,

    Just been looking at your PF, there's some lovely stuff in there. i presume a lot of the birds were taken in Towneley Park? I particularly liked the one from Boxing Day 2004 in the snow.

    Glyn.

    Hi Glyn most of my shots are from Towneley, i've got a feed station in the woods............The birds are almost tame.
