  1. Best ignored! I upload both as I don't trust them to do as good a job as me on a conversion😁 Phil
  2. Last year I scanned some of my 1980s B&W negs, 6x6 and 35mm and then reversed them in Photoshop and did some adjustments curves and managed to get results that I was extremely pleased with(on screen, I haven't printed any), and with a couple of scenes that in the original prints I was never happy with I managed to get results that far outweigh the darkroom. This for example from 35mm. One of the luxuries that computer based processing gives us is the opportunity to stop at any point and assess how the image is before making more adjustments whereas in the dark if you weren't happy with a print it was back to the enlarger and try to add extra dodge and/or burn then hope the dev was still at the right temp(especially in winter!) and hope for the outcome to be closer to what you wanted... I do miss the darkroom for the craft and the unique results, but not the time/expense and hazardous smelly chemicals! Phil
  3. My first B&W darkroom tutor taught me the beauty of black and white is in the blacks and the whites! He also said to always remember KISS...Keep It Simple Stupid😃 Phil
  4. I did the upgrade on iphone 7 and so far all is ok. 😉 Phil

  6. +1 This is crucial...Don't make the first choice available at the lowest price pint... Phil
  7. When I'm doing property shoots I often use Merge to HDR in Lightroom on the RAW files which then produces a DNG. I save the DNG as a PSD and if I open it in PS it shows as a normal layer. I then use the Create New background from Layer command to make it a Background.... Don't really know if that gives much insight into the workings of Layer/Background as I've absolutely no understanding of why it should happen this way but it is consistent. Phil
  8. Geometry is definitely a good ref with strong lines, also using minimalistic, minimal, on some... Visual impact is should be an important consideration for front page, especially the way it gets cropped on different devices. Phil
  9. Also I've been trying to think of emotive tags... mood, etc...but that is a tricky area as it's so subjective and what I think may, or, may not be, someone else's view; also others may see things that I don't....🤔 Phil
  10. I'll still keep shooting them and hopefully a few will fall into place... Fires this year were mostly on Gran Canaria, so not directly affected. The few that started on Tenerife were dealt with quickly before getting out of hand... Phil
  11. Tricky issue and one that I also struggle with... I use tags like; texture, abstract, background, light, shade, pattern, (describe colours), shape, form, line, concept, focus, blur, contrast,...and any others that I can think of; (obviously when I think they are suitable). However not sold any pure abstract images...yet🤔 Phil

  13. Thank you muchissimo😘 Via Alamy alright as it's not anywhere else...it's become a best seller for me since I scanned it last year, wish I'd done it 10 yrs. ago. What's NFU Countryside? Book/mag/other? Phil
