Photo locations site

Black out screen

Just discovered how much nicer it is to view photos using the black out button....Yes it concentrates the eyes so much more.:D Also just discovered I can opt out of the versus challenge. It would be OK if photos challenged each other in similar categories;)

Two Monitors !!!

I was working on a new creation a few days ago, quite a departure from my normal type of picture. I was about to upload to my gallery when I realised how wildly different the colouration was on my MacPro monitor compared to my HP monitor. No matter what I tried I could not get the "good" v...
