  • Dawn at the Tor by Robin_TB

    Thank you all very much for the comments and time taken on the mods, apologies for being so slow in replying. The sepia look comes from the WB setting and for me gave a more 'historical' look to the picture, however this has not come across and I agree the mods are an improvement on the original. It was hand held, usng a fence post as support, with a large zoom and an older camera. The tripod is now in the boot! Smile I'll certainly take a look at the exposure settings, as I think this is an issue with other pictures I have taken (not posted on here).

    I took a series of pictures with slightly different settings so will have a look at the others and incorporate your advice.

    Thanks again, Robin

  • Tranquil Sunrise by LDorey

    Beautiful shot, capturing the light like that. Is that Corfe Castle?

  • F/A -18C Hornet slow fly-by by ugly

    Definitely a Belgian Air Force F-16, not sure why the details aren't on the website. Plenty of action in those photos, great capture of the afterburner in 3 and 4. Smile

  • Anita DeBauchery by dudler

    I live quite locally and know that area well and never thought of it as a suitable venue for a nude photo shoot. My opinion is now completely changed! Beautiful model and backdrop, the two compliment each other very well. I like the different tones you've captured and look forward to seeing more.

  • Sally B and Friends by 213hardy

    Great photo, a lovely group of aircraft and I'm glad the pilots got their formation tight! Grin

    I saw Sally B do a flyover at RAF Wyton years ago, it's good to see her still flying!

  • The Approach. by paulbroad

    The final image was definitely worth all the effort of combining the old negative with the digital elements, it's a great picture.

  • Fishing by fandangofandingo

    I'd be chuffed to bits to even see a bittern, let alone take such a fantastic shot!

  • Lens Adaptors - worth it or not?

    Thanks for all the comments. Financially it seems to make sense but my skill level may have to come up to make best use of it. :)

  • Are adaptor rings worth it?

    Thanks all for the advice. I did read all the posts on the macro thread and this wasn't meant to turn into a re-run ;-) The general feeling I'm getting is stick to ...

  • Which Four Thirds Macro Lens?

    The 35mm macro has a 2:1 ratio on all 4/3 cameras. It is an excellent wide angle Macro, used by several well known proffessionals.

  • Posted on: HP Photosmart Premium

    My wife and I have had one of these for a couple of months and are very pleased with it, no tech issues to report at all. Colours and saturation are both good on HP photo glossy papers and having separate trays for standard A4 and photo paper saves alot of faffing about with paper changes. Printing standard documents is fast and photos are done quickly although I have not used a stop watch so can't give figures.

    For snapshots it is great to be able to Bluetooth directly to the printer; we use it particularly for shots taken on the 5Mp camera-phone with good results on 6" x 4" glossy photo paper.

    I also like the ability to customise and save printer settings on the computer software which saves time constantly adjusting pre-sets.

    Whilst it is probably not going to challenge specialist photo printers the overall quality is very good, everything is quick and easy to use and is is significantly better than our previous all-in-one. I'd recommend it for home office and amateur photo use.

    Fantastic portfolio, I really like your use of light and subdued colours. I read your EPZ article which linked here, it's a fascinating area as long as you're brave enough Smile Not sure I've got the confidence to try it but you seem to regret not doing it sooner.

    Thanks for posting such great images, I am definately inspired.
