Hi,

I hope you enjoy my eclectic selection of images. I don't have a particular style and I don't do too much in Photoshop. Almost all my images are processed in Lightroom. Occasionally I indulge in Photomatix but only to deal with excessive contrast.

Cheers,

Alan

    Interesting thought process Kate and I really like the final image.

    Yes Kate this is at the Black Watch Museum, and Perth has always been the home of the Black Watch.

    If the weather up north is as good as here you should have a good day Kate. I like this and the reflections. Now Coleraine takes me back to (a) driving through on the way to Castlerock and my parent's caravan in 1961, (b) numerous trips for rowing while I was at university in Belfast and when I taught at Methodist College (Methody) in the 70s. Last time I drove through was a few years ago on our way to Mussendon Temple.
    Cheers,

    I agree with Moira, we don't realise how fortunate we are. Even our poorest children don't have things quite this basic. Well captured.

    Another lovely image, and I really like the way you've captured the edge of the peat cutting.

  • Posted on: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Announced

    My tongue is hanging out. I went on the CPN website and looked at it. It really is a pro camera though. I'd love one, but I was just saying to a club last night that the MkII is the best camera I've ever had. So, I'll just keep my money in the piggy bank until a Mark IV comes along.

    I guess with the 24-70 it will be about 3900, or 3300 with a 50mm 1.4. My AE-1 in 1978 cost 200 with a 50mm 1.8 lens. Add 50 for the 1.4 lens and 80 for a motor drive and it costs 330. I was earning 4300 as a teacher. At the moment I'd earn 6 times that so an equivalent cost of camera would be 1980. On that basis the 5D Mk III is 1.75 times the cost of the AE-1 but look what it gives you. Truth is that value has increased exponentially over the years. I still can't afford one but hey you can dream.

  • Posted on: Apple release Aperture 2

    It is available to us Brits and now. I am using a free trial at home. I tried v1 on my older Mac and it was too slow to cope, but v2 runs sweetly on my MacBook and the results are excellent. At 129 it seems good value for what it does, and I can't be bothered moaning about the price difference which is 6 plus VAT. $199 is about 104 - add VAT and you're at 122, so the price difference is a lot less than the cost of a plane ticket Smile

    So where's the link to Tate Modern then? Shame the London event has closed for bookings, but Liverpool is still open as I've just looked. Here's the link

    A super portfolio. I really like the way you have set the people in their environment so well.
