  1. October Challenge :: Failure

  2. October Challenge :: Failure

    Having made my way back to Yorkshire from wild West Wales, here's this month's challenge. I don't think we've had the subject of "Failure" before so let's go with that. (If we have and I've missed it, please let me know. I'm prepared for the irony). I'm thinking that it might be a mechanical failure, human failure, economic failure or something else entirely. Serious or humorous, major or trivial... you get the drift. Please post up to three of your images. Closing date is midnight UK time on the 31st October. Here's some not-particularly-startling examples from me: I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Best of luck!
  3. September Photo Challenge Poll - Critters

    Thanks for the kind comments all. As ever, there were some impressive entries and I'm delighted to have topped the poll. Thanks Steve for a great subject and competitive shortlist; I know it's a cliché but it's true - any shortlisted image would have been a deserved winner. I'm en route back from West Wales at the moment (RedSnapper's stamping ground) so I'll get the next comp up and running on Tuesday.
  4. September Photo Challenge Poll - Critters

    Thanks for the nomination, Steve. A great mix of wild and dot-so-wild critters. Good luck everyone.

    One $52 gross sale and for the first month in aeons, no zooms.

  7. DXO vs. Photoshop CC

    Just in case any Fuji X users are thinking about this, DxO doesn't handle .RAF raw files.

    The only sensible use for an Austin Maestro.
  10. September Photo Challenge - Critters

    First time I've done this for a while. A Eurasian Brown Bear with a Black-Headed Gull in close attendance in a forest on the Finnish/Russian border . . Two Northern Gannets disputing who has first dibs on the fish, the North Sea, off Bempton/Flambrough, UK . . Juvenile Mountain Gorilla munching on some vegetation in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda
  11. An Obvious, Great Subject . . .

    We might also have to recalibrate what we think of as a "crappy photo".
  12. Speedy PayPal payment?

    8th for me too.
  13. Photograph into painting effect

    Acksherly, "humorous" is the correct British English spelling too, in spite of the humour/humor difference.
  14. If you're shooting raw, in-camera colour space choice doesn't matter (i.e. aRGB or sRGB). I don't think anyone in this thread has said not to get an accurate colour balance.
