  3. My interpretation.........for what it's worth , I think it's a medieval art "Tetramorph" depicting the Four Evangelists as Elements as in Earth, Fire, Water and Air. Hence the shapes depicting animals associated with said elements. Ermm.......I think!
  4. Congratulations Steve, great topic..... Durham cathedral The one and only! Full English.......Iconic or what??

  11. I agree Phil. Out of my small port I would say 20% are "Green", and that was only because when the system changed everyone went into a panic with updating keywords/tags. I gave up in the end as when I searched "Orange" images they mostly appeared within one or two pages of the images visible! Most of my port are food related and at the end of the day there's only so many tags I can think of for a bacon sandwich.......and it's not 40!!!

  15. Hi Bryan, I had a graphics tablet years ago to use in conjunction with lightroom and Elements to assist with processing images. As with everything new you have to practice until you get the hang of it but, once you do it was brilliant. especially for selecting areas right down to the pixel. The hard part to get used to is you're looking at your screen and moving the pen on it's board and until the pen makes contact with the board you can't actually see where it is in the screen....if that makes sense. I would defo have another if the need ever arises. Regards Davey
  16. Thanks for the interesting replies. Spacecadet, It did cross my mind to remove the battery then buy a new one while away, but then I would have to prove there were no batteries in my luggage i would presume. MDM, Yes, I was in Newcastle airport 3 weeks ago and in the security area at departures there were lots of red signs posted saying no electronic items bigger than a smartphone allowed in hand luggage. Bit of a nuisance when you've already checked your luggage in! I'm not sure as to how strict they are on enforcing these rules as I didn't have my DSLR with me, but they allowed my friend to take her Ipad on board!! Davey
  17. If this goes through it would restrict travel photographers in a big way. My local international airport has already banned DSLR cameras from hand luggage so where do you go from here? https://petapixel.com/2017/10/20/us-urging-airlines-ban-cameras-checked-bags/
