I had a nightmare with this problem when I used Firefox. I uninstalled Firefox off my laptop and it solved the problem.

ePHOTOzine The Photography Show 2014 Exhibitor Guide
I went on Saturday and had a wonderful day.

The place was buzzing, I tried my skills taking shots of the IGPOTY garden and had a one to one critique session with Clive Nichols where he reviewed six of my flower images. What a very nice guy he is. I attended a talk where he showed his fabulous flower and garden images and gave out some great advice and tips.

Another plus....I managed to get out of there without spending next month's salary GrinGrin

Help on Macro Lens Choice
Hello All,

I'd really appreciate some advice on what Macro Lens would be a good choice for me.

I upgraded to a Nikon D7100 recently and would like a macro lens with a wide aperture.

I'm not into taking close ups of insects but would like to take shots of flowers etc where there is one sharp area of focus and a large depth of field.

I'm confused by the choices available and I thought about £300 would get me a decent lens.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Elaine (www.i'mconfused.com) Grin

Weekly B&W Challenge ends 8pm 14th August- Bottles - creative shots,
Well, as I said it's been very difficult. I've chosen the one which made me exclaim "Ooooh I like that" when I first viewed it. So the winner is.................................................Vodka Blues by Gary66. And the reason is;

Gary66 – I like everything about your image Gary. The clarity and the tones, the rich blacks and bright whites. The reflections at the bottom of the shot are a great inclusion and I like the way the background is thrown out of focus just enough to not be distracting. You can drink the contents of the middle bottle now to celebrate your win.

Thanks to everyone who entered I found it difficult to choose a winner. My thoughts on all of your great images are;

Wilco54 – Loads of atmosphere Chris, nice POV & DOF. Nice lighting. Really impressive image from a phone. Mmmm I can taste that wine now!

JawDborn – “Blue Sky Thinking” as usual Jack, and you made me laugh again. Love the detail in the wing. It’s quite a scary looking thing though.

Griff2012 – Looks like you enjoy a bit of “hot stuff” Jacqui – me too! I like the natural lighting and the different sizes and shapes of the bottles gives your image interest.

Rambler – I really like the lines of the bottles against the white background Ken. The little ‘un is cute. Looks like me and my husband out for a walk. Great idea.

Digby – Great lighting and background Hugh. The shadows and the lines in and around the bottles and the detail in your image is beautiful. I love those old glass bottles.

Sr1867 – I think this may be early morning light through a window and I like it. The rich blacks show up lovely against the clear glass. Good luck with your saving up Simon.

Cats_123 – Beautiful reflections Jeff. Your lighting has made the glass sparkle. I love the creative POV and crop.

Need Help With Image Versions in My PF Please.
Hi Adam,

Yes, I don't really want to delete anything as the crits are a great learning tool, not just for me but for others to learn from too.

I wonder if I can just start a new album and call it "Final Versions" or something like that, and then upload my final images into that. Then I can refer any viewers of my work to that particular album.

I've asked David B in the tech dept. for advice.

Cheers

Need Help With Image Versions in My PF Please.
Hi Ken and Chris,

Thanks for the suggestions - copying the blurb out of Ephotozine and into Word then deleting and uploading may be the only way forward.

I wish there was an easier way though, most of my original uploads have been improved - it seems a bit of a palaver. I should have thought of this earlier Sad. I suspect there's no quick and easy way to do this.

I've sent a report to the tech quys to see if they can help too.

Thanks - your help is appreciated.

Need Help With Image Versions in My PF Please.
Hi Adam,

Thanks for taking the time to help me.

This has been flumoxing me for ages..............I want to display the best versions of my shots, but in my pf it's the 1st versions that I uploaded to the CG that are on show.

I'm still confused - sorry I'm a bit of a "techno thicky". Do I have to somehow delete the 1st versions out of my pf, and then upload the better versions so I only have one version (the best one) showing.

Cheers

Need Help With Image Versions in My PF Please.
Hi Bren,

I wonder if you can do it by:

1. Create a new album.
2. Move all of the first versions of images into that album for which I have created a better version.
3. Make that album "private" so only I can see it.
4. Upload my final better versions into my pf.

Maybe this is a question that one of the tech guys could answer.

Thanks for your reply.

Need Help With Image Versions in My PF Please.
I upload most of my images to the Critique Gallery. Often I use the advice I've received to produce a final improved version of the image I first uploaded. The final versions are on my hard drive and I haven't uploaded them to my pf as I don't want to have duplicate images showing.

This means that the images showing in my pf are the first, and often not the best, versions.

Can anyone help me?

Is it possible to upload the final version of an image into my pf as another "version" of the first uploaded image, but have the best version showing in the first position in that series in my pf (so any previous uploaded versions of that image are showing as image 2,3,4 etc, and can only be seen when you click on them)?

I wouldn't want to delete my first versions and upload the final ones instead, as I want to keep all of the critiques I've received for future reference.

Have I explained my question clearly here? - I hope I've made sense!

I'd be grateful for any help.

Cheers

Elaine Grin
