Originally from Lancashire, I've lived for 24 years in Co. Donegal in the Northwest of Ireland, now with Mary my wife, two horses (her passion) dog and cat.
I'm learning all the time (aren't we all) and one constructive comment can be worth ten clicks, so don't hold back, all critique is appreciated.
I've recently signed up to the critique team - I'm enjoying it but it is time consuming so I'm spending less time in the regular gallery, which I do miss. Anyone needs to contact me re any critique I give feel free, it's only an opinion I'm giving, and I'll give more help if requested. PM me or leave a comment on the shot is best.
My general workflow for anyone who's interested:
I use Olympus E-510, shoot RAW, process in SILKYPIX
If there's a sky anywhere I've probably used a 2 or 3 stop ND grad.
I then tweak in PSP 11, but I prefer to call it optimisation rather than manipulation
Happy clicking all - of the shutter button, of course..
(none of that reciprocal stuff- I only click what I like..)
