Fun day at work, police open day which fortunately finished at three leaving me time to watch some of the cycling.

Attempting some street shooting in south east London - not something I've ever really done before! Pretty scary taking photos of random strangers... Any thoughts you might have would be useful - cheers!

that one is superb.

^ agreed :cool: I reckon you could make it an even more dramatic crop and chop it off above the windscreen

I'm pleased to see someone saw the cycling!

I went and saw some model trains at the request of a very excited 4 year old...

PP question. I had said that a friend had thought that I tended to process on the dark side, SO.........Having borrowed his MacBook, I PP'd the following shots first on my normal Dell, Then on his MacBook but with a few days in between. 2 shots repeated, first is the Mac followed by the Dell.

Which do you prefer and why?

I am a tad confused because what you are asking is oranges & apples (sorry no pun intended ;) ) are you saying that using the Mac vs the Dell you are actually 'producing' images with different contrast & brightness (curves) settings???

Then surely this is a perception question i.e. in LR or PS you make said adjustments "to taste". The only time a Mac vs PC question (or any yours vs my computer) IMO becomes relevant is when you are printing and the print does not match that screen...............t​hat of course is then a matter of screen calibration ;)

Can I ask as you said the friend thinks you PP too 'dark' and it was a few days lapsed that you then PP'ed the same files on his Mac that you were more conscious of "must not make them too dark" and hence lightened them up overall.

As for what I prefer ~ well the darker PP makes me think of impending storm/disaster approaching whereas the lighter PP is not as "interesting".........​.....but both PP'es are good in isolation/own right :D

HTH helps............maybe​??? :)


That was a great meal ~ you must have a good set of pans :p

Penel, will show you what I've done so far.. it's not bad but I'm getting there. Just getting the layout sorted before I add photos. Love Carls top photo too!

I've been at RAF Brize Norton all day looking at 3 aircraft that are due to retire. 4 favourites from today though, not all Brize Norton.. two are from a skydiving place just north of Banbury.

More to follow if anyone wishes :)

Ooooh! very nice and +1 for the TriStar :D But the AN-2 is always something to behold such a large aircraft that 'seems' small visually. FWIW I saw one fly into a stall(?) and it just hung in the air "hovering" like a Kestrel for a good few seconds before powering up and moving forward.

What I was getting at was the fact that Gary made this comment a few weeks ago. I then shot the above captures with this in mind, pp'd them to my taste on the dell, left it a few days and did the same ting on the Mac.

Its funny that out of 20 odd shots I pp'd on both machines, ALL the ones done on the Mac came out lighter. It's also interesting that you find the ones processed on the Dell more "interesting" to view!

I have to say that when I went through the air show photo's on the Mac, it was a lot easier and pleasurable to work on the MacBook and I was personally more pleased with the results, despite using the same program and workflow.

Gary only wants £500 for the MacBook but I'm now questioning whether its worth that kind of investment right now as I can replace my 28-70 f2.8 Sigma with a 24-105 f4 IS "L" for the same money. As better glass is now a bit of a priority.........

Andy I expect it's down to the screen calibration more than anything else my PC went pop about a week ago and even though I've not used the camera for the past month or so now I've been using the girlfriends MAC to edit some old shots and some of her's from shoots she's done for her and they look different to what I'd do on the PC, laptops are something I hate editing on as it all depends on the angle of the screen as much as anything else to the brightness.

Thanks for all the nice comments on the pics the last few days. Unfortunately we didn't stay until today, Lola got something called haemorraghic gastroenteritis (blood coming from both ends, horrific) so she ended up in the emergency vet in Norfolk at 2am on Fri morning, so we came home yesterday afternoon to get her seen by our own vet. She's doing much better now, home, and rested, and on various meds to help her recover. Scary stuff it was like a horror film! those of you on my fb will see the pics I've linked from Carl who went back again on Friday morning - oh hang on I can show you as he has them on flickr. Great shots indeed.

Sounds awful! Glad to hear she's doing better already.

Would've loved to see some tilt-shift shots of these. What happens when you take images of models in the style that makes them look like models?? :D

Funny you say that - my friend asked the same question, I suspect it makes them look 10 times the normal size!

had intended to add some more, but my wireless keyboard batteries died mid sentence last night - quite annoying, time to return to a wired solution I think! :)

I'm looking into it, and have been given some quotes for painting them - that said I researched how much these wheels are as an optional extra so I'm now loathed to get rid of them...

...maybe a clean up is a good idea?! where did it and how long were you without the car?

Sorry, long time out, busy weekend at work.

I was without the car for two days, the process to shot blast them and acid dip and all that is quite laborious.

Saw some of these on your FlickR and was going to say, if you hear of any more days/events like that with model railways, would you let us know as my grandson is a huge train fan (particularly Thomas of course lol).

Thanks for the comments chaps! :) Took a while to get that shot, I was either unhappy with the sharpness, peoples heads popping into it, or just blurred. (500mm handheld)

Also, I think I have a focus problem with my 50-500, so I'm going to ship it down to Sigma soon, hopefully they can sort the problem. Little bit annoying, but at least it's happening this time of year, not the start of airshow season.

Lee, LOVE the trains! Have you got a TSE lens or did you rent one/PP?

Kev, will drop you a PM soon :) Thank you..
