External hard drive problem
PC World do data recovery for all types of drives and from what they told me the prices are far less than the online data recovery companies. I just had to pay out or rather the insurance company did 1422.00 for one of my drives which had a mysterious fall! After much interrogation of the family I am still none the wiser as to the culprit!

Drop Box
I would think that it is easily done by mistake. Dropbox is not exactly the most simple to use storage system.

Urgent Help Required!!
18-135 teamed with the D80 is a marriage made in heaven! If you can get him another one, all be it second hand, it is certainly worth doing. Failing that the 18-105 is still a nice lens that will work well with the D80. If you really want to splash out then the Nikkor 18-200 f3.5 is even better but be prepared to spend about 560.

PNG file to PSD, is a batch process possible
I use this process for resizing my images. Very good and quick as well. Just don't be tempted to open too many at once! I ended up in Windows basic mode and crashed my computer! All ok in the end just managed to waste a lot of very precious time!

Ikea Kitchens
I've got all my bedroom furniture from Ikea and it is really good quality. Simple to put together (unlike the MFI bedroom furniture) and good solid construction when built. My next kitchen will definitely be one from Ikea. When I was in estate agency I saw quite a few and never heard a negative comment about them.

I use the Tamron 24-70 F2.8 on my D800 and it is a sensational lens. I wouldn't hesitate in buying more Tamron lenses.

Lens recommendations

Quote: The only reason I would not recommend the 28-300 route

Which is the reason why I suggested the 18-300mm which is optically correct for a DX and give you all the reach you could ever wish for. I have FX and DX lenses but really only use them on the cameras there are designed for. I could interchange them with my cameras but don't as it saves effort and time having to make any possible corrections afterwards.

Lens recommendations
The 28-300 is for a full frame camera and so not going to be the best for your D3000. The Nikon 18-200 F3.5-5.6 is an excellent lens. Sharp as a tack with all the features and an excellent all purpose lens. There is an 18-300mm lens which would be suitable but is a heavy one. Do you need the 300mm end for something in particular because it is worth doing some research to make sure you are getting the best for your needs?

What Lens for My Marriage?
That's one hefty camera for your friends to have to use on your wedding day, not to mention one with a very high price tag! I would never let my D800 go to anyone let alone a D4 unless I had complete trust in them.

As your friends will be using an SLR then there really should be no reason why heads etc should be chopped off unless they really are amateurs in photography. That said I would reccomend the Nikon or Tamron 24-70 F2.8. Both are superb and well suited to wedding photography but don't forget they are not lightweights either. If no flash is being used you will likely need that larger aperture because even in the brightest rooms if the weather is gloomy and overcast on the day a lesser lens will be hunting around in the dark!

My personal view is leave the photography to the professional, that's what you are paying them for and can you really trust your friends to look after your camera after a few pints!

Planner or Reactionary?
I am a bit of both or rather a lot of both. Weddings make me reactionary but they start off with certain elements planned and progress to reactionary then back to planned!

Time on my hands and purely for pleasure and I become completely planned with a vision of what I want to create and not giving up until I have achieved it.

So on a scale of 1-10

Planner = 5
Reactionary = 8

Mainly because I cannot commit to being one or the other as even in reactionary mode a part of my brain has still planned the outcome.

How do you spell Wedding Fair/fayre?

Quote: talking with fake Somerset accents

....and there is nothing like a fake somerset accent...and I really mean nothing!!! truly awful.

Anyway. I spell fair in the way the organiser promotes it. If they write fayre then so do I.

First wedding bust-up
Never had that particular experience at any of the weddings we have done but in the 80's I was at a friends wedding and there was a huge fight between the family members of the groom. Tables and chairs flying in all directions!

Health and Safety at Weddings !

Quote: Then you and the authorities you work for are misusing the DBS certs and paying way more than you need to.

Not any more, and my husband was fully aware of what he had to do. It's not classed as the same type of work even though we are taking minors in our taxi to and from places. That is the difference. Now it has gone online the rules have changed but we no longer operate the business anymore.

Health and Safety at Weddings !
The law is slowly changing but it is the case that you need one for each organisation that requests it. My hubby's taxi business meant that we had to have enhanced CRB's for any school contracts that we did for the local authority. We also did airport transfer work for pupils at three private schools and had to have enhanced CRBs for the company that employed us as well. Had we chosen to take on work from another local authority or anyone else for that matter we would have needed enhanced CRBs for each of them as well. At 55.00 a pop it is a serious consideration, 220.00 to be precise every year. My husband closed the business last year as it was becoming more and more difficult to make it pay. I ended up doing all the contract work as he was too busy with his driving school and this in turn was putting me under even more pressure with my own business let alone running his! Wink

Recomend - D300S or D7000
D300s. It is a great camera and I am more than happy to use it as a second camera for weddings. Never had a problem with image quality and the build quality as everyone has pointed out is very good.

Forgotten how awful it makes you feel!
She really does look like she is smiling. Rescue dogs are very special and I also believe they choose you and not the other way round. We were so lucky to get our girly. She had meant to go to another family but she developed kennel cough so they were told they would have to wait three weeks for it to clear up. On the day that we went to the rescue centre she should have been picked up by the other family but they hadn't turned up. We asked if we could take her for a little walk while they made a phone call. It turned out the other people had gone and got another dog and didn't want Rosie anymore and the rest, so they say, is history.

That is so sad Chris. I know we make the right decisions but it is so difficult. We are just focussing on the lovely time we shared with our Rosie. We received a card from our vet yesterday with some very heartfelt words that reduced me to tears but was such a lovely, thoughtful thing to do.

Hope you can also enjoy your christmas.
