Havelock North St Lukes Church has some wonderlight leadlight windows. I didn't make a very good job of them today though - couldn't verticals correct.

St Luke himself:

Random sparrow - probably technically quite incorrect, but I just like it. Lighting was dappled with shade umbrellas, and harsh light and shadows.

Even with the guide lines I struggled today. Wonder if some it might be lens distortion ...

older eyes, sorry. I have the same problem. As eyes get older the lenses get less elastic, the amount of and the age at which are basically determined genetically. Smoking also does not help believe it or not. I wear glasses (bifocals) full time but have only needed them for the last 4 yrs or so. ( I am 70 x smoker)

I have never been one to worry about 'technical correct' and status. Ansel Adams : “There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.” End of story.

BTW that food is actually not good for her. (Boy sparrows have the black 'bib') And I like it! finally after about 5 edits :(

68 here and never been a smoker but eyes not so good - I wear graduated lenses .... last two years my close sight deteriorated, whereas I am short sighted usually. Deterioration of near sight with age is usual apparently ...

No - they/she ought to be eating seeds etc .... but the sparrow is so well adapted.

The bottom of my lenses used to be clear as I was short sighted - now they're a combination of both! How they do it is beyond me. ie short sighted compensation main part of len, and reading at the bottom

Computer screens may have something to do with that also.

My understanding that computer screens worse for short sightedness/myopia. But doubt too much is good for anyone because of the invisible waves ....?

I'm not sure the newish LED types have as much radiation, but do not quote me on that.
