Just doing the same. Bought all the components and done my first ever home build. Hat tip to Moppie and Mevunky for their help... It's for me, quite a swish setup so looking forward to connecting it up to my screens and setting it up. Also just signed up for the Adobe $10 deal so will be keen to see what the real differences are between CS6 that I use at work and the new CC...

After my wifes notebook drive died I put in a SSD and it just sings!
Is is really only $10 in N.Z.?

F..ing Adobe is charging €14 here in Europe.. just because they can!!! Basically double what they pay in USA.
I'm not interested in being ripped off.

The greens are a little fluro on my screen, but otherwise very nice Kris

I agree that the greens look a little over saturated.

Thanks, I'm not so good at PP and am playing with Adobe Photoshop Express basic which is free. Only works on jpg but doesn't do to bad for a 'numpty like me. I was deliberately heavy handed with the green, going for somewhat surreal effect but I think I may have stuffed up the cottage pic. I will think on it, meanwhile here is another very surreal shot, I was intrigued with the way the different textures became evident. It is a major crop, maybe 25% of the original.

QUOTED IMAGE

Actually I have another motive for this as well, trying to show someone that 'keeping on shooting regardless' can net some interesting results. Meanwhile, yep. I think I will seriously redo cottage, it doesn't quite work in monochrome either, but looks like it should :) Thanks :)

Nice texture study. If that is only 25% of the image, then its pretty impressive.

Hey folks, haven't been here for a while. We just bought a boat with my brother, took her out for her first overnight stay at islington Bay, Rangitoto. Was a superb outing :)

Have done that myself some 30 yrs ago, also a sailboat but a trailer yacht. Some lowlife stole the trailer while we were away :(. I have a small flash I used on the 400d if that is any help?

Thanks Chris, I now have a 580EX lined up but will let you know if I can't get it :)
Gutted about that trailer, the cheek! We got a 2005 Rayglass 850, total overkill (550hp!!) for our needs, but when we take 6-8 people out fishing it's fantastic :)

Nice boat. I like hp overkill in cars and boats ;)
Definition of a boat? A hole in the water into which money is continually poured :lol:.

My flash was only a wee sunpak dedicated to Canon you'll most likely be better off with the 580.

Moneypits eh, so long as they're used and your getting the experiences from it, then it's just like any other hobby :)

I have no idea about flashes, so may take a while to get used to it haha.

Photography is also a moneypit. Though can also earn quite a lot with it.

the first flash I bought was a 580EX about 7 years ago. It was expensive at the time.. but I have never had the need or longing for anything else. It was a good investment.

Nice looking boat!

CS6 works pretty good for me. I paid for it maybe a year ago, I think it'll keep working for a good while. I suspect Adobe have created an opportunity for competitors. By the time CS6 ACR is starting to look a bit long in the tooth I hope someone has created an awesome new RAW tool that I can start to use instead, but if not DNG and CS6 should keep me happy for a fairly long time.
