  1. Lovely shot Russell. Envy you living with a view like that. Hope they do not build on it soon. Allan Thanks Allan. I've moved house since; a year ago today in fact. I'm a mile up the road from there, now.
  2. Shot from my front doorstep one snowy, winter morning: . .
  3. Yes, I saw that Ann. My interpretation of it is, "We acknowledge that forum members are discussing watermarks". I'm not sure whether "...some annoying..." comes before "forum members" but I suspect it does.
  4. I'm out. It's interesting that the question, "Why don't you watermark images?" still hasn't been addressed on the PS Forum.
  5. Thanks again, both. I have used PM5 in the past but I rely heavily on a catalogue so I dropped it, in spite of PM5's strengths with metadata. As a workaround though, I use an app called TextExpander that makes it easy to do "Code Replacement" type actions for captioning and keywords and it works whether I use LR or Aperture or whatever.
  6. Thanks for the info, Duncan and Martin. Is there any plug-in functionality yet (i.e. Nik)?
  7. Meanwhile, that litre bottle of whisky that weighs a couple of kg and would deliver a nasty blow in the wrong hands can be bought in Duty Free and taken on board. It's joined up twattery.
  8. A couple of dancers at a street party: . . . . . . Effects pedals and a guitarist's foot: . . . . . .
  9. What's his final output going to be though? 12MP shortest edge in 3:2 format is ~2800 px. At 300dpi that's 9.3 inches.
  10. Why does he need 16MP? In a controlled shooting environment, he'd likely get away with far less.
  11. Easy. He should tell Wikimedia that he encouraged the macaque to press the shutter. So it was work made for hire. The macaque received a banana in payment.
  12. Uploaded in August (taken at a London Street Fayre a few weeks back): . .
  13. By the way everyone, it is easy-peasy to do the form as Graham suggests. Took me 5 minutes to set up an account and fill in the form.
  14. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. I really like vignetting so I have to rein myself in otherwise I overdo it.
  15. Here's the rub, Paul. Define "lowering standards". I have seen some absolutely stunning iPhoneography*. Stunning. How many times do we hear that it's not the kit but the photographer? *Other cameraphone brand neologisms are probably available.
  16. But the physics of it are that the focal length, as measured on an optical bench, is 18-55mm. The image circle doesn't enter into it. Turn it around. Put a 24-70mm "full frame" lens or that 50mm Medium Format Hassy on an APS-C sensor. What are their focal lengths now? Another way to think about it is to use the 24-70mm on a full frame but crop the image to the field of view of an APS-C sensor. It now looks like a 36-105mm field of view but the focal length hasn't changed. You've just (arbitrarily) cropped your image to look like it was shot with a longer focal length. Remember. Th
  17. Ed, as a Australian living in Upper Bavaria i have tried to yodel, unfortunately for others there was a lot of noise that did not pass the local Bavarian yodeling QC . Paul. Too soft?
