Good stuff Mark. Aaron's cele (#4) is something a bit different... nice one.

Didn't have a great night myself despite the fact it was a pretty good game. I've put up the usual gallery here: http://www.photoshelte​r.com/gallery-show/G0000WmVCfAbIQiE (external link)

Have fun at Kiddy on Saturday. At least it's an early kick-off! ;)

Cheers Gav, the drive to Kiddy will be worth it as long as:

a) we win
b) it doesn't pee with rain
c) i manage to get back for most of the England game

Some more pics here... http://www.mgsportpix.​com …9/thumbnails.ph​p?album=10 (external link)

Paul

a) 7th plays 19th, should be a good chance of achieving this one.
b) the BBC says it's going to be dry, that said they said the same last night and it wasn't! The jury is still out on this one.
c) Kidderminster to Grays, total journey 163.2 miles which the AA says will take me 2hrs 53mins. Chances of getting home during first half are fair.

Only time will tell!

Cheers

Mark

This is a great shop in London's Picadilly http://www.japancentre​.com/?cmd=cat&cid=118 (external link)

Ref the straight horizons, yeah understand what you are saying. For me personally they are something that I can live with or without dependent on the content of the picture. For standard 'stock' shots then yeah for sure there is really no reason for them not to be. For grabbing/catching action shots such a someone scoring a header/volley whatever then the action being captured and sharp is, in my personal opinion, perhaps more important. If all comes together great, if it's sharp, captures key action moment but isn't 100% straight I can live with that.

Straight horizons is actually a bit of a misnomer isn't it? What we actually need is straight verticals, we don't have a horizon reference point.

Mark

p.s. I hope that link convinces you to stay here now.

Mark,

I understand what your saying but if I was an editor and saw your pictures with crooked horizons I would stop looking. It is distracting and takes away from the content.
