Thanks Smile I've yet to find a way of reducing the originals for display that doesn't leave them looking soft and muddy. Reducing the pixel size still leaves the file too big to upload at maximum quality, so I've had to heavily reduce the quality to upload.

Yes, it's the "magic hour", when street lights are on but sky is still not dark. I love it too.

I find that 85% to 90% JPEG conversion done with Xnview
(free tool, www.xnview.com) gives me good quality with reasonable sizes and faithful colours that other tools such as ACDsee don't give (I feel that ACDSee alters colours during JPEG conversion).

Hey! These are some great shots!
Are we kind of constantly getting better? We seem to reach a very sophisticated level here! That's great.

My pictures are "in process"... Wink

I hope we are! The combination of looking at others work and plenty of practice has got to be the key. There are so many inspirational shots on this forum alone.

Carsten - The frosted roses are particularly good they capture the later flowering we now experience combined with the more traditional seasonal experiences.

I love this shot for the calendar Richard, it captures exactly the English countryside in the dark, misty days of December.

Here's a quiz question - who knows what is being grown in the field in front of the building? The location of the picture where Richard comes from, plus the strange-shaped things on top of the roof give the answer. If you live (or have lived) in UK or Ireland you probably know the answer to this, so please don't give it away - this question is meant for others.

Peter, I don't have the "fookinest idear" what that plant is, but I'm glad
to see your post, thought we'd lost you. Smile

Some kind of plant to making beer ?


PostPosted: Mon Dec 24, 2007 11:43 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

Beer is made with cereals, what I see there are woody plants that look more like vines (although from the photo is not easy to tell)
