A quick view of salopian's recent activity.

  • Embankment Lightspeed

    The city always looks better at twilight or in the early morning and this is a good shot. Robert's mod lightens it up nicely but I wonder if a square crop taking some off the less interesting right side ( as viewed ) together with a little off the bottom which gets rid of the logo, would look OK.
    Tried to load such a mod but after downloading can't open it in PS -- "wrong type of file " ? -. Happening a lot lately and not sure how to fix it !

    Thanks for all your comments and the mods. As usual they give me plenty to think about and emphasise the fact that you are never too old to learn. I think my mantra should be "read, mark and inwardly digest"!!

    These shots of this glorious country just get better and better. Livens up a cold grey day in the UK. Thanks

  • Pap of Glencoe

    A lovely shot of an area I used to visit a lot in my hill walking days. An old OS map shows a maternity hospital on the lower slopes of the Pap which seems appropriate !

    Thanks again for the mods ( which are all a great improvement on the original - the black and white conversion in particular is excellent ) and the helpful comments of course.
    John, the Samsung NX100 ( not 1000 as in the Exif ) has an APS size sensor and I was just experimenting to see how this would perform on auto settings compared to a smart phone and it seems to have come out a poor second !. With manual intervention it can produce some good results so I think this little trial means turn it off program mode !

    As John says there is a lot to like about this shot - a lovely sense of freshness for one thing.
    I'm a bit puzzled by the blue/purple area on the larger, darker petal and a smaller, similar highlight on the one above. Would this effect be connected with the LED lighting. They draw the eye to some extent - nice image though.

  • Second Severn Crossing on a Foggy Day

    An effective shot and some very interesting mods. These tend to show up the faint vapour trail ( towards top left ) more than the original. It looks rather like a faint scratch on first viewing, so I have roughly cloned this out on a square cropped mod ( as per SWMBO ! ) together with the nearest lighting pole which seemed a little intrusive. It has come out rather darker than I intended but gives an idea of an alternative version.
    The original conveys a very calm feeling though.
