  1. It does need an explicit second step though. Martin is correct in saying that the "Develop" data is held in the LR catalog. XMP sidecars are only created if you tell LR to do so either automatically (which is not recommended) or with a manual key press/mouse click "Save" command.
  2. Aaaaaand.... ...the uncertainty is over. Maria's quantum cat pipped Reimar's blurred gull at the last. Congratulations to Maria and thanks to all who took part. Some great images again for us all to look at. So it's over to Maria to choose a topic for March's challenge. If Maria really exists, that is...
  3. The uncertainty principle is strong in this one. Neck-and-neck between the blurred gull and the demi-cat. I haven't voted yet and if by the close of play tomorrow it's still a tie, I'll use my vote as a tie-braker.
  4. That's probably true, but then maybe it isn't. Hmm. Uncertainty. Paging Dr Heisenberg! Are you certain he's still around? He's been seen in a number of States... This is becoming a bit of a Bohr! Steady, mate. It's all relative. Actually I am finding this all Strange, Up and Down in fact. Just need more Charm to get to Top and Bottom of this subject. "I don't know why I like it but I do" is rather quarky, isn't it?

  7. Time to vote folks. I've shortlisted on the basis of me not knowing why I like an image too. So you have to vote the same way. Or something. Anyhow, you have until midnight on Friday 6th March to vote. The shortlist is: Martin's cricket net . . . . Reimar's blurred gull . . . . Phil C's abstract architecture . . . . Lynn's toadfish skeleton . . . . Steve's barb wire fence . . . . Phil R's London . . . . Jorge's Luxor . . . . Maria's cat (or maybe Schrödinger's seeing as it's half there, half not) .
  8. Entries now closed. Thanks to all those who've entered. I'll put together a shortlist and poll over the next day or so.
  9. At the end of 2014, another Archant title "Wild Travel" went belly up. I was a subscriber and was offered credit toward a subscription to a different Archant title. "Professional Photographer" was top of my (very) shortlist. Ho hum.
  10. I think it says "danger no anchoring... unless you can't understand Welsh, in which case do whatever you like" Reminds me of the (true) story of the email sent to the council works department to make a bilingual sign in English and Welsh for something like "No Heavy Goods Vehicles". They got the English bit right but underneath, cut and pasted the bit of the email in Welsh which translated as something like, "This message is confidential. It may also contain privileged information. The contents of this e-mail and any attachments are intended for the named addressee only. Unless yo
  11. It's a Beta and is pretty buggy. But it's promising. It renders very quickly and there are some nifty tools. When it goes on sale, it looks like it's going to be around the £40-£50 mark.
  12. I pull part the plastic casing and then cut, crumple or tear the disc inside. I have done that once for one. But I need a WMD to deal with several hundred. It's never been a hardship. I find it strangely satisfying and meditative.

  14. So. It has fallen on me to sort out the February challenge. There were some fabulous entries last month & I know it's a cliché but I was genuinely surprised my image did so well. Thank you to Bryan for stepping into the breach and doing the business. Anyhow, I'm going for a rather nebulous subject for this month's challenge but I'm sure we all have images that fall into this category - "I don't know why I like it but I do". This may be a disaster or it may work out OK. That's up to you lot! Rules: 3 images max per entrant 8 will be shortlisted by me at the end of the mont
  15. Thanks all. A nice surprise along with a magazine sale (different image) appearing for me this morning. Almost but not quite made up for Wales getting schooled by England in the 6N last night
  16. Yes. You're missing the loss of formatting of the OP's post. I think "Number of images" should line up under "Rejection Reason".
  17. Nice to be in such exalted company. Thanks for putting me in the shortlist Bryan.
  18. Guardian Online 25th BNT9X5 :: trekandshoot E6MB5M :: Ed Rhodes (cropped) ​And there's an image I can't track down on Alamy in this piece.
  19. What Spacey says. I've got plenty of wildlife shots taken at nature reserves in my port and I've had no problems/comeback with any sales I've made here or elsewhere. If I take a shot of a sign or something like that on a nature reserve, then I'll regard it as "Property Release needed" and put it up as RM. The only "nature reserve" shots I haven't uploaded are those I have from Monkey World in Dorset because they request that you don't use photos taken there commercially (and I respect what they do at Monkey World). I think you'd have to be careful with wildlife shots taken on Nat
