In reply to:

Peter Del: Beautiful, sophisticated image that looks partly drawn; though I've no idea how you did that.

Thanks valenttin, the penny has dropped, noise has been added in ACR.

The trees with the light above them are magical

On article Aura is a next generation digital picture frame (74 comments in total)

I load my USB stick (£8) with jpegs and they play as a slide show on my 32" TV. It has the same problem as this frame, it is rectangular, not all photos are landscape. They should have made it square, so that all pictures, whether landscape or portrait, are the same size!

Magical, quite magical

It seems to me that if it includes an original Oska Barnack camera, then the estimate is very low indeed.

It seems, from the bottom left hand corner of photo no.4, that they will have a selection of oval lenses!

In reply to:

Stereodesign: No.4 definitely looks wrong, like overexposed flash; a Google for C.E.N.S.U.R.A. Julián Barón takes you to the website with the explanation:
"In that big circus that politics is, photography and censorship are allied to each other in order to manipulate people through the false use of image as a document, using large mass media to subtly but constantly mask those aspects that do not respond to the claims of the parties, blurring and distorting reality.

However, by focusing on a different way on politics and its leaders, trying to use the camera in decomposition, it is also possible to make photography censor censorship and then, negative against negative, offer something positive, some new perspectives on politicians and their superficial status, revealing how the state they defend so hardly vanishes by their actions, their images and all the paraphernalia that surrounds the ivory tower in which they believe they live in."

So now we know.

No.4
Take a rubbish image and justify it with a long, meaningless explanation. A common practice.

I tried the free trial to change the sky. I thought it was rather good, but you can only use, say, the night sky or midday sky once, because if it appears in more than one photo, Camera Club Members will notice!!!

Keith Cooper: With a lot of people new to the software I hope this info is of help. I still use them regularly, with Sharpener Pro being a frequent part of my print workflow from small snaps to 3 metre prints. I've written up details of how I use many of the plugins.

Hope it helps?

On article History Repeating: Olympus PEN-F Review (1058 comments in total)

"History Repeating". I hope not, the original half-frame pen had half the size image, half the quality with grain twice the size!! I'm surprised Olympus alluded to any of them!!!

On article Otherworldly? Lomography introduces Jupiter 3+ lens (159 comments in total)

What's the point? 'The Petzval lens was developed in 1840 by Joseph Petzval.', a century later The Russians brought out the Jupiter 3, a Zeiss clone!!!!! Why bother to buy either>

On photo Slide Rule Math in the Numbers challenge (2 comments in total)

Peter Mark Roget M.D (1779-1869) described his log.log slide rule in 1815, however the actual invention of the slide rule is open to debate.
Logarithms were invented in 1614 by John Napier (1550-1617) and three years later Edmund Gunter (1581-1626) put these numbers, in a line, on the limb of his navigational instrument. Who chose to slide two of these scales together to make a slide rule is confusing. Some writers ascribe it to Edmund Wingate (1593-1656) others to Seth Partridge (1603-1686)!!!!!!

On photo My first camera in the Gear Porn challenge (2 comments in total)

Ken, the Hong Kong made camera was first introduced in 1959, around which time I probably received it as a present from my parents, as an alternative to a bicycle, which proved to be too physically demanding. Like yourself, this kindled a life long interest and is the only camera I kept!

The first image in your Gallery is quite beautiful.
