  1. Cheers Julie…Had a look and a quick play with some suggested settings…Still not sure whats the best way to go, eyes getting a bit tired now so will come back to it later. Anyone else got any input?
  2. Thanks for that Martin…Interesting Makes me wonder what else is in the RAW that I don't see And wouldn't it be good if we were told
  3. I've just got a Fuji XT1 and 18-55mm kit lens and am using Lightroom 5.6 for processing. I'm wondering what standard import settings people are using, particularly Clarity/Vibrance; & Capture sharpening. I've been playing about and I'm not convinced that I've got the ideal combo yet. My settings are usually; Clarity +20/Vibrance+16. Standard LR sharpening. These work great with the Canon 5DMKII and the Fuji X100, but seem a bit soft with the XT1. Also I see that Adobe do not have a lens profile for the 18 - 55mm Fuji, any thoughts re this? TIA Phil

  5. 1) Ability to append/delete keyword(s) without affecting the others in the same field. 2) Loupe system in MI to see image better(Count people etc). 3)SEE 1)…. Ability to append /delete keywords without affecting others in same field
  6. Dunno, I think a lot has to do with the subject. If the challenge was about "cars" you'd see a lot of participants because everybody can shoot a car. But if it was about "classic cars", the entries would be a lot less and I think 3 images/photographer would be very reasonable. Anyway, the initial purpose of these challenges is to give people inspiration. I'd say, "the more images, the better" Cheers, Philippe I'm thinking of the number of photos the poor judge has to sort through , though it's also a good point about how to word the challenge to make it more specific.
  7. I think that the one photo idea is good for going ahead with now that so many people are participating. However, don't think the greenie should become a general measure for selecting the finalists; it should be down to the subjective judgement of the person running that months challenge. Well done Ed for getting it down to a more manageable vote
  8. Ok sussed it…voting here…images there…Very confusing, not user friendly…. Why so many to vote on? Thought the idea was to reduce it to about 8 for the voting
  9. The link doesn't take me to voting…..confused.com
  10. Sometimes I get phone calls from people wanting to reserve a table at a restaurant I've photographed when they find on my website and think my contact details are the restaurants
  11. PSD is photoshop native files. As long as they are up to scratch in sharpness/lack of artifacts, etc then converting to jpg and submitting would be fine.
  12. And I've had the opposite, images that have sold on Alamy and been rejected by another agency No figuring it out sometimes.
  13. From a behind the scenes shoot I was doing as another photographer was shooting a calendar for a breast cancer charity.
  14. A way to help if CA tool isn't enough….. In PS duplicate layer. Change blend mode to colour. Go to Filter-Blur-Gaussian blur. Adjust to about 3 - 5, checking image to see CA disappear. Add layer mask. Fill with black. Paint back in white on areas you want. I sometimes use this if I think the image is worth the work.
  15. Time to step up to a Kodak Box Brownie, Phil. Interesting that so many of you don't mention the camera (or type of) you're using. Just tried to order one but they're out of stock
  16. Shoebox, painted black, 0.001mm pinhole, shutter adjusted according to available light, ISO 5.
