I was experimenting with my camera,every pic taken in S mode, a polariser was used (cos I couldn`t unscrew it,and it was sunny)

Cenotaph, war memorial in my local park

Smode,F/4, 1/750 ,CWeight



Windfarm near North Yorkshire ( notice people at base of front mast)

F6.3/ 1/500th sec ,spot



Last these 2 flying rats in my local park whilst multitasking, focussing,throwing bread and making sure Tommy didn`t fall in





all pics, auto levels,high pass,Photoshop CS,pic cooler defaults (too much noise with Best 3:2),,,(note to self ..setit to Best you idiot!!)


Next weekend A mode,,,,woo-hoo

Best-mode I wrote that down TD. WAIT a minute I wrote that down 3mos ago. Those were very, very nice shots TD. Loved the clouds! You guys are gettin all the good skies now. Only thing I can shoot is haze. I like the White border. It makes it look more professional looking an not just some snapshot.

Very nice shots TD, I've always had a hard time with the borders especially when it came to using the cm or inches so I started using percentage just seems to work better for me that is....good shooting :-)

All good, but the wind farm is incredible. There's something about the giant windmills plus the farm lane gate and sheep... the old and the new? The huge difference in method (and objects that reach the eye) between mechanistic modernism and farming? Don't know exactly, but it really strikes a chord with me.

(Don't take me wrong -- I think wind farms are great ideas, and I also think real wool sweaters are great ideas, too.

Very nice shots there.
Can I have a play with the second shot in PSP? I have a few filters that need that type of picture, and then I'll post it back here when done.

All the best, Paul.

Very good shots TD, I enjoyed the flying rats the most. I had not known about the Cenotaph so looked it up on the internet which led to a poem (about WW 1) whichis very good also. The poem is "Evening whispers on the Somme"
