  • Pretty cool effect James always fun trying new things, I have to thank you for this post as it got me off my backside to do a bit of jiggling around with my PC. I have been using Faststone Viewer ...
  • Hi Charlie, not yet I am afraid, I have been flat out like a lizard drinking working on my model railway, I wanted to get it to a stage where I can spend more time on my shortwave radio and do a ...
  • Hi Charlie, the photo speaks for itself, the color shot is a snapshot but the Black and White shot is a serious photo.
  • The most memorable digital shot was one I took at an old house with huge Jacaranda Trees in full bloom with a massive storm approaching from behind the house, I wish I still had it but sadly it ...
  • Hi James, I guess we all have different ideas on what we are trying to accomplish with photography. It all started in 1969 for me, my Dad came with me to buy my first camera which was a 35mm ...
  • The way to go Charlie, take the labs out of the process and you will do well, as you say there are still plenty of B&W film, chemicals and Developing Tanks around. I will be searching for a 35mm ...
  • Hi Charlie, the self portrait is pretty OK, maybe its my monitor but I wonder if the new Kodak 400 film is actually Kodak film ???, looking at the pictures on my monitor the last two shots look ...
  • :-D Nice one Jim, I must be getting old as I had to read your reply twice before it sank in.  very funny :-D
  • I don't know about anti smoking Charlie but its a great reminder of all the $$$$$$ I spent on 30 years of smoking, I might as well have chucked my cash down the drain so to speak. I gave it up 26th ...
  • Very original Chiue, you don't very often see flower pictures taken from under the flower, it worked very well and lets face it the flower looks just as pretty from the back as it does from the ...
  • A top notch series of pictures James I like them all. One of the things that put me off digital cameras was the skin tones, that was way back in 2003 when I made the switch from film, I didn't take ...
  • Lovely shot Chiue, this shot makes me wonder what is going through the Seagulls head, maybe if I am patient and wait without making a noise the rest of my greedy pals wont come and spoil my feed. T ...
  • Lovely shot with great color, the antlers look like they are wearing white sunglasses, pretty cool.
  • Top series of pictures James, surprised to see another one of my past hobbies on the beach, Model Planes great fun. Good to see you out and about with the camera and the pictures look A1.
  • Created discussions How do you Judge Photographs?.
    I marvel at the way some people judge a picture these days, I honestly think that people get it in their heads that if a picture is taken with an expensive camera that it has to be better than if ...
  • Stunning scenery Jim and that new camera is proving to be a real winner in your hands, the colors are awesome and IMO very much like the old Kodachrome 25 slide film
  • Charlie I think you spend to much time with your Nikon and not enough time mowing the grass on your lawn, oh well at least you had somewhere to sit and view what shots you had taken. I just crack ...
  • Top Notch shot Charlie, I wish the so called exif details on the picture made sense I have trouble understanding the crazy shutter speeds. Regardless the picture is a little work of art with nice ...
  • Replied in Sunset Beach
    By golly that new camera is coming up with the goods James, the colors are great and closeup shots are spot on, how unusual it is to see conifer trees growing so close to the coast and what about ...
  • Replied in gun smoke
    Nice series of shots Keith, I have a problem though and that is why did they build a lighthouse on top of the ship ? I have never seen that done before.  I first thought the ship was in front of ...
