    Think Ades spot on really Wink I've got a wedding tomorrow with 11 bridesmaids and 150 guests which is my biggest wedding so far lol..and I won't be letting anyone into the reception till I've got that large group shot done's the only way really Grin
    And as luck would have it there's a big square and monument behind the town hall were its shaded so no worrys on those squinting eyes lol..and I'll be using my trusty step ladder to shoot down onto the group Wink

    I think you will find once you have the formal stuff done you will enjoy the rest of day watching things unfold and capturing those moments's just a big Papafon lol ..Tongue
    You'll be fine Nick and good luck..

    Well that's me done now Sad a very enjoyable week too Wink

    I had a couple of blunders where i had clicked on an image and forgot to award it lol.
    But i think i done well looking back through the gallery they where all first class images,
    Deserving of the awards Smile

    Must say i could of awarded a lot more especially the wildlife images Wink

    On a final note im totally in awe of people who can bring images to life through their processing skills and manipulation.
    The clarity and sharpness in a lot of the images ive seen is phenomenal,
    So 2011 for me is going to be a busy one learning and honing my PS skills! if i can find the time lolSad
    Being able to use layers will be my first task me thinks as ive got some cracking portraits but need to change the backgrounds on them Tongue so they will sit on the hardrive till ive learnt it lol.

    Thanks Pete for giving me the opportunity and i would love to have another go at this,
    If you think ive done a good enough job..that is Wink

    Hi Ade,

    I was surprised at how much interest there was for architectural images of Liverpool at the last networking event i went to.
    I took along a handful 36x24 and 24x16 prints of my nightspots and sold a lot of the three graces which is this one

    The feedback i got was superb as they were all more interested in having architectural images of Liverpool than the colourful Gormleys Wink

    As for the portrait stuff i think people are wanting more location based portraits than studio as its different and the results are more exciting.
    Id rather have a canvas of little Johnny jumping of a sand dune than him sitting in studio with a white background lol. Hence i need off camera flash lessons now as ive got a portrait shoot on the beach a week on Sunday with six kids the lady hates boringly posed portraits in a studio, she had seen a shoot that i had done around formby pine woods that went well.

  • Commented on 'Assaulted photographing a child who had been causing trouble'

    Well its only going to get worseSad

    Ive been driving a cab on nights for 25 years and if people had seen what ive seen they would be reaching for the Valium Tongue
    I hate having to go out at night but its my job too, as i don't have a choice at the moment.
    In the 25 years ive seen 4 murder's and 100's of people being beaten to near death.
    In most case's ive tried to intervene and others its just not been possible.

    Its hard to describe how it makes you feel when you see things like for example= an elderly gents head being smashed against the kerb and then used as a football while his wife is screaming for the scumbags to stop.
    On that night the only way i could stop them killing him was to run them over in my cab.
    After they got up and ran i followed them and directed the police to them which resulted in one being arrested Wink
    I spoke to this poor gents wife a few days later to see how he was and she was saying the they'd gone out for a meal for his 65th birthday and for no reason they set about beating him to near death just for the fun of it. and sadly that's what you are up against.

    I wish i could write a book but sadly my Grammar is crap lol..

    Yep always leave a copy in the glove boxWink we changed our car 5 months ago and ive been stopped 3 times now,
    On the second time the police spoke to the insurance company and told them to update their system. But i still got stopped a month later Sad

    Never trust them and always have a copy on you and you'll be alrightSmile.

  • Commented on 'Out of your comfort zone to progress'

    Funnily enough my soft box has just arrived as im desperate to learn off camera flashSmile
    I have always been comfortable at shooting at night but want to try so many different things, ive just gone from my 20D to a D700 plus quality lenses and since having the D700 i only shoot in Manual now instead of Aperture priority which is a big step forward lol

    Taking portraits scares the crap out of me so i play it safe with candids but its something im going to push myself into doingSad
    So its going to be fun using flash as ive never used a flashgun lol.

    Hi Guys,
    A local web development company has just mailed me, this is there msg,
    Hello Ian,

    We really like the image named in the subject (20081018_0200And7more) and would like to use it on a website we are developing at the moment.

    Would you be willing to allow us to use the image and acredit you with the picture or alternatively do you have a price for us to purchase the image solely for web use?


    Now ive just had a look at this company and they are a large company based in liverpool,
    So what i'm asking is what sort of price should i say for solely web use,

    Thanks in advance for any idea's .

    Congrats to you all for getting the commendments/highly commendments/winning photos,
    I have to be honest and say I'm a bit surprised at the winning image,
    Although its a cracking image I've seen better on here on a daily basis.
    Also the horizon doe's slope down to the right a little to much Smile
