  1. Looks to be very effective. The Fuji X-T3 has the same facility but I haven't got around to trying it yet.
  2. Thanks James, thanks Rye.
  3. Love that effect Polly. So suited to the subject as well. I can see these having a commercial appeal.
  4. Thanks all for the comments. James, with a dedicated Epson scanner which will produce a mono file. I might have used Photoshop CS6 for the conversion but I can't find the colour file and so it was probably done in the scanner. The file was then downloaded to a CD in those days (2008) and commercially printed by a local print house. Not wet prints if that is what you have in mind. The Epson will also convert negs into positives to allow digital prints to be made.
  5. These are quite old and the engine still carries her original number. Taken when the Scotsman was based at the Carnforth yard. Health and Safety was still a twinkle in someone's eye and so you could wander in and out amongst the engines at will. Taken using a 6x9cm Ross Ensign Selfix folding camera loaded with Kodak Ektachrome, which I still have. Mono because in those days, I only printed mono (for competitions).
  6. Nice shot. We have them here as well. I normally see Red Admirals and Peacocks in the garden at this time of year but the Painted Ladies seem to have taken over from the Red Admirals. The Buddleias were covered with them yesterday. I have some shots but can't post them easily yet.
  7. Escargot ,,,,,,,,,,,, but perhaps not of the edible kind. (..bit late this week. Had to work out how to post. My desk top is still being investigated).
  8. I've been in conversation with DXO since about the turn of the year because my (paid for) NIK software will not boot up consistently from Photoshop. Having uploaded oodles of data for them to analyse, they haven't come up with a solution and I had given up any hope that they might. They still haven't but out of the blue this week I received an e-mail thanking me for my patience and providing a link to download a complimentary copy of the new Photolab 2. Still won't work consistently from within PS but it provides an alternative workflow that just about solves the problem. In the same week, I receive another email telling me that as an existing user, I'm entitled to a gratis upgrade to Topaz Studio which has now become Topaz Studio 2. So all in all, I well chuffed. Nik doesn't seem to have changed much but TOPAZ seem to have added a lot to Studio 2. If I can get Bitdefender to sort my desktop, I can have a good rummage.
  9. Ditto from me. That's a lovely study.
  10. Totally missed this for some reason. What a nice gentle shot. Lovely framing and processing.
  11. Great set of images. Some of the expressions you have caught are priceless - the last two in particular. You could mount these together in the same frame and wall hang it.
  12. Thanks all for the comments. We do see them in fields but generally not too far from the coast. Mainly however, I find them wading in the shallows on the marshes around here.
  13. I like the photography and I like the letter box format. I could live with any of the three on the Wall. That's good work nicely processed. P.S. ......and I like the framing.
  14. A spring tide will bring these in close enough not to have to crop too hard. X-T3 with 100-400 plus 1.4x
  15. Me too but only because I prefer the compositions leading lines which you have produced using hues as well as content.
