******Beauty in Black

By Mynett
I spent a lovely day at the NEC with Desilver and my son Lee and Cliff

I really enjoyed trying to capture some glamour shots with the models who were on the stands, I notice Lee and I have uploaded the very same one today.... great minds think alike and all that. Lee is new to digital and has only just joined epz and is hoping for all the help and support he can get (after me singing the praises of EPZ) and the amount I have learned from using the site.

A very big thanks to you David for another fun filled day out. I did pay a visit to the EPZ stand, but it was late on in the day - picked up the new magazine for a look too.....

Hi Martin

thank you for re visiting and for the mod, I also wondered about this and even considered a tighter crop which would have closed in on the face more and left out the hat, I do think your mod works very well and it is something I will have a go at if I do use the shot at camera club or the like

thanks again for the award support and help, every bit of help is soaked up like a sponge as I want to learn and improve.

Have a great weekend
