  1. For 8 million Euros I think I would like to live in a more architecturally inspiring building! (#2) Interesting series with lots to see.

    I like #2 best with the sun behind the buildings. Have you thought about lifting the shadows just a touch to bring back some detail in the buildings?
  3. That's a big file, but worth it.
  4. The saturation slider is operable Dallas and you can achieve all sorts of adjustments using the colour temperature and tint sliders.
  5. That looks an interesting place Vivion. We have Mercedes World at the old Brooklands track just outside London, which is a great place to visit.
  6. No Charles, just the cable car.
  7. I think its a radio mast on top of the restaurant and cable car station Charles.
  8. Just a quick update on this old thread. Having considered the PenF and XE3 very seriously and pricing up the cameras plus basic lens kit I came across a used Leica CL and 28mm pancake lens both in mint condition and at a very reasonable price, more or less the same as the other kits. It was a no brainer really as all of my other Leica fit lenses adapt seamlessly or fit natively to the CL. It's a great little camera, a joy to use and large enough to comfortably hold in my big hands. Images aren't bad either!
  9. My home county of Essex boasts one of the longest coastlines in the UK, it isn't one of the most exciting with none of the dramatic cliffs that can be found elsewhere in the country. It does however have a beauty all of its own.
  10. Very tranquil Walter. I have to agree with your sentiments as I'm always irritating friends by taking the country route, but the sights, sounds and smells make it all worthwhile.

    And as for all you racist foreigners that design left hand drive vehicles to challenge us Anglo Saxons ... well! The world has truly gone mad. Heaven help my grandchildren.
  12. Spotted this hearse in Malcesine on Lake Garda, Italy. It is based on a Jaguar XJ.

    Spring flowers

    I particularly like #3
  14. You are a patient and methodical man Alan. I could never have achieved this image.
  15. At 3000 euro it might be cheaper than new cameras and lenses!
  16. Can I join (GASSG). Just found the 'need' to buy another camera.

    For what it's worth the XC40 is marketed as an SUV in the UK, but that term seems to be used for anything that sits high on big wheels. Who cares what we or they class it. All that counts is that it serves its purpose.
  18. I'm an infrequent user of a big telephoto lens, a Sigma 150-600 Sport in my case, and so an expensive gambal head was economically unviable. I bought a Neewer head from Amazon for about £75 and so far it has served me well. A gimbal heads certainly improves the overall handling of a heavy lens and I would recommend one. Thanks for your article.

    Aah, the SUV trend spreads a little further Luc!
  20. I might have been inclined to remove those twigs Vivion, without disturbing anything else in the scene. The contrasting greens and textures work well.
  21. As much as I enjoyed the Spitfires this shot of the Harvard is my favourite from the day.
  22. I was fortunate enough to join a group visit to the restoration company hanger. They were working on several aircraft and restoring a couple of Spitfires for the forces. We weren't allowed to photograph those but were lucky that the M.D. decided to give us a private flying demonstration of one of their own Spits. I'll add some shots in a separate post.
  23. ... and here it is in the hanger at Duxford. With apologies for hijacking your post Vivion.
