  1. Past hour
  2. Very hot oven and preheated baking tray. Base rolled out very thin and not too much passata!
  3. Today
  4. No perhaps then. The after effects can be very powerful and exhaustion is a main symptom. This is being very widely recognised now. The idea of two weeks and off you go is out the window for many. The other thing is that it is unpredictable. I start to think I am better and then splat. However, it does seem to be improving overall and this fabulous weather is really helping. Best of luck with it.
  5. I found a Lumix brand 46mm lens cap while on a walk in the woods yesterday and it does not fit any lens I have and would be happy to send it to anyone in the U.S. or Canada who can use it. I hate to just toss it out. It is like this one. It should fit any 46mm lens front.
  6. I think so. That was my lens when shooting Nikon. The color rendition from it is beautiful.
  7. There is a lot in the Lightroom menu that is relevant these days....for example: 1) Distortion (how much should be permitted?) 2) Saturation (when is too much?) 3) Highlights (or should they be called lowlights?) 4) White Balance (no doubt one of Agent Orange's favourite controls) 5) Detail/masking (need I say more? Anyone fancy a trip to a castle up North?) ๐Ÿ˜‰
  8. Yes I'm not a fan of the subscription model either but I am far too embedded in Photoshop and Lightroom to even think of changing. For what you get they are exceptionally good value anyway. I am a heavy duty Photoshop user so do take advantage of a lot of features that are not available in the last perpetual version I own (CS6) which no longer installs anyway on the latest MacOS. Since I started learning video seriously during the lockdown, I've invested in Apple's Final Cut Pro rather than even think about subscribing to the full Adobe package. Not a chance of that at the price.
  9. Wonderful choices. I could vote for any of them... all of them. I suppose that's not allowed. Paulette
  10. Your son makes me think of Alan Rabinowitz. He had a terrible stutter as a child and could only speak to animals. His disability and the relationship he formed with a lone jaguar in the zoo led him to become an advocate for the big cats, especially for jaguars.... https://www.nationalgeographic.com/animals/2018/08/alan-rabinowitz-big-cat-champion-news/ Paulette
  11. i also don't get a monthly bill, nor a system that has issue with the RAW conversion from my camera ;-) (for my PS needs i have an old element license). i actually think both systems are fine, just had issue with the pricing model of one.
  12. But you don't get Photoshop with Capture 1. I could live without Lightroom at a push but if i had to have only one app it would have to be Photoshop. All that funky conversion stuff can be done organically anyway.
  13. Maybe you need a dose of Covid-19 (if you haven't already had it). It does wonders to focus the mind on what is important in life ๐Ÿ˜ƒ. Only problem is it can bring on some serious fatigue which can counteract the ability to do all those things that have been brought into focus in the first place. You could say it's a Catch 22 situation but I'm calling it Catch-19 ๐Ÿ˜Ž.
  14. Last sale in mid February. Iยดll get the same results by doing nothing. Iยดll go elsewhere.
  15. They try to stop me too. I recently started working as a photojournalist for a paper and this question has come up often. You are well within your right to document what is happening at a newsworthy event. I always find it odd that fellow protesters are ENCOURAGED to film and take pics but anyone marked as media is bad. Just move on and keep doing what you're doing.
  16. I stopped visiting my local park due to the crowding being too bad for birds on top of the obvious health concerns, but am finding work shooting protests/editorials for a paper if that counts. I shot that stuff anyway, but it's a far higher proportion now since at least outings for genuine work are justifiable vs just going out to see what I get.
  17. you only get one slider? Capture 1 gives us two, Clarity and Structure, plus a pull down to determine the method: Natural, Punch, Classic ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ท
  18. Of course the usual travel stuff isn't there- no trip to Split for a start. Not Alamy material, I don't think, but my first proper studio setup in ages for some still-life- natural forms, ivy on dead logs, lilies, and some light and shade in the forest. As seen on the "nature picture" thread. Take a look. I'll repeat one here. Lilies.
  19. Better than Jan-Apr. Not good exactly, but an improvement. As for cleared balance, however......
  20. More than April's duck, but still not worth reporting. Average down to $20 gross. The next cheque I see after Thursday will probably be from Rishi Sunak.
  21. Yes, of course, thanks, wasn't thinking it through. Might try it in that case.
