  • Guess what it is by mack

    OK! AngelaD, pamelajean and Tina_Michelle, you guessed it, sorry there are no prizes. The subject caught my eye and it creates a talking point, plus it is nice to look at things from a different perspective.

  • Summer Beauty by mack

    Sorry angelamary, I cannot remember the name of this rose, it was planted some 15yrs ago and is getting rather tired now. Only producing a few flowers every year despite nuturing and loving care.....Mack

    Dear ColWal
    I like the picture in its natural surrounding i.e. the garden, the whole point is the subject is in focus and the background slighly out (DOF) making the main subject stand out, therefore the background is irrelevant. After years of producing photographs, designing and editing garden and seed catalogues I have had no complaints yet.

  • Honey Maker by mack

    In answer to "starstriders". Bumble Bees do make honey, albeit only a very small amount to feed their young.

  • Mystical Light by jules41

    As I mentioned in the thread about degree courses, a good photographer has an eye for a picture. Here is the proof, this lady is a natural, they are few but what a pleasure they bring to the viewer.
    You will go far in this noble art.

    They are already selling it in the UK, I have been looking here in the US but still have not seen it. Has anyone bought it or know where to buy it in the US? Thanks Joe

  • Posted on: Jessops plans to stop the rot

    Looking back at Jessops stores over many years and having visited one or two, one of the main problems I found was the lack of photographic knowledge of the very young staff (they don't cost so much to employ) plus they were only interested in pushing the items they were told to and not really what you had asked for. Over the last few years with internet and supermarket outlets, they have not been competitive on price either. Having read the above article they still do not seem to be addressing the things they should, closing stores and cutting staff is ok in the short term in order to cut overheads but they need to be a competitive force alongside other internet and high street suppliers plus offering a superior service if possible. so really Jessops you need to take a good look at what others are doing well at and see if you can improve on it.

    Put a plastic bag in your pocket for the job if you are that worried about dust. You want your bumps looking at if you fork out £25 for just another gimmick

    Price will be around $899 with 18-70mm lens (531) or $899 (478) body only. Sounds a good price for what you get.

  • Posted on: Pentax become second victim of European legislation

    I served my apprenticeship in the printing trade in the days of hot metal casting, the type was made of Lead, Tin and Antimony (solder). I handled tons of the stuff over the years, breathed in the fumes when re-melting it for ingots to be used again. Will the EU ban me and my contempories for lead content, as we must have swallowed more than can ever be found in a camera. I do find now at the age of 64 my feet getting heavy, do you think there may be a link somewhere?

  • Posted on: Adobe Photoshop CS2 it's officially released

    To contemporary dave.
    You say that PS is expensive and elements has lots of features and is cheaper. Yes it is cheaper but it does not do what PS does, you must realise that originally PS was designed to be used in the Printing industry along with Photography and there are many features that just a photographer would probably not need or ever use. If you think PS is expensive then take a look at the price of Quark Express the main graphics design programme used in Print, around 1200 plus. Along with that you then need Illustrator and Freehand, probably Corel Draw and In Design plus the full Acrobat programme then you can start to hopefully access all your customers discs.
