Re: Shot of the Week 2019 – Iggy – April

The crop is a good idea, but if your subject is the sky and the couple then maybe crop even further - i.e. have you experimented with taking 20-30% away from the right-hand side? As for needing to scroll, you can always zoom to view a full image - hold Ctrl key and use the mouse wheel to go larger/s...

Re: Northern Ireland North coast March 2019

Maybe even see if we can see the Northern lights? It turns out there's a solar storm which increases the possibility, but for Saturday evening (when the KP index is highest) the forecast is 90-100% cloud coverage.... https://www.metcheck.com/WEATHER/aurora_forecasts.asp?zipcode=Belfast There's stil...

Re: RPS Visual Arts Group Exhibition

Amazingly, there is no mention of the show on the RPS website. There is an event entry for 16th Feb , but it doesn't have a duration/end date set and the default behaviour appears to be only showing future events, so anyone looking at the list after the 16th would not have seen it. The exhibition i...

Unable to open your blog page that came up with an error. The error ("Sorry, you are not allowed to preview drafts") is because Mike's link inadvertently contains parameters for viewing the draft version. Removing those parameters (everything from the question mark onwards) gives the inte...

Re: Post-processing Challenge

If anyone wants to experiment with the techniques Darren showed tonight, this challenge is the perfect opportunity. Remember: you're not producing an image for a competition/judge, it's about having fun and pushing your comfort zone - you definitely don't need to spend hours painting thousands of in...

Re: Post-processing Challenge

Doing this sort of image well is definitely a job for a graphics editor. Export two images - one exposed for the colour part and one exposed as mono (Lightroom's mono conversion does more than just desaturating), paste the colour as a layer over the mono and add a layer mask to hide it. For somethin...

Re: Photo Challenge 2019

However, you might be able to link to an image of the correct size on Flickr. Even if an image is hosted elsewhere, the limits still apply. To confirm what Mike says here, you can link using [url]flickr.com/etc[/url] to any size image, but embedding images with [img]flickr.com/etc[/img] is where th...

The 24-120 f/4 I have is shorter and has a different profile.

The cutaway looks similar to the 24-70 f/2.8 ED but not exactly the same - maybe an different iteration of that lens.

Re: Cutlery

Park Hill is across the road from the law courts in East Croydon - https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/51.36974/-0.09169

I picked it because it's close enough to where I work to visit during lunch, but there are definitely better parks where it'll be easier to get good viewpoints.
