I couldn't believe my luck with the choice of topic when I realised it coincided with my annual jaunt down south for a winter break.

Exactly. The downside with CS2 is that it won't process raw files my camera, but I can still shoot raw, tweak them in the Nikon software then convert to jpeg to work on in CS2. Plus as you say, the more I work on my photography technique, the less I should need to tweak. Hence I'm planning on dragging myself of bed even earlier than tomorrow to walk back up to Stoodley Pike to get some photos in better light, hopefully!


When I had CS2 it wasn't compatible with my Canon Raw files and I did exactly the same, edit the raw using the canon software supplied, export the image as a Tiff and then editing that in CS2. A bit of a faff but needs must.

eh? what are you saying?
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Are you on the Durdle Door site. It looks quite nice and is in a cracking location, we let lucky the day we went, we drove about 30 miles in thick fog and when we got within a mile it broke to brilliant sunshine. Considering the weather generally we were really lucky.

One thing to note is that a landslip has taken the steps out down to the Durdle Door beach, but it looks like they were getting ready to start work putting new ones in, if they haven't then be prepared for a bit of a scramble to get down to the beach.

I find it difficult to believe that your shot was taken within a few days of mine of Churn Milk Joan. It looks like summer on the south coast. :D

I know it was cold, I was out in it take the photo. :D

No poem, but another walk (or near run!) to get up for another slightly larger stone in the Calder Valley this evening. Didn't get up there in time to catch the light as I'd wanted, but took a few shots anyway as I needed to catch my breath before walking back down.

Had another go at editing this shot tonight (hence it won't be my entry, just after feedback from my experimenting). How does this look in comparison? I don't think that the Halo effect is some much of an issue, but I can't decide whether I've gone a little ott with the lightening of the monument.

Did you keep your receipt? You might have got your money back if you told them it wasn't waterproof.

But there was no tent as it ended out at sea. Lost property, perhaps! :D

We were left open to a downpour at two o'clock in the morning, suffice to say we packed up and soaking wet in the bargain.

Here's my effort lost in a total white out driving across the Yorkshire Dales from Aysgarth to Bolton Abbey last week, the only person we saw was a farmer on a quad with a gun strapped to it, my reassurances to my wife we would make it out alive were not that convincing. Posted Image
