self-conscious??

I not only looked through the window, but took a snap of the dancers and tea-drinkers. I think I got a wave from one of them... Brass neck, me!

The same box

Hello Ann

Yes we were: from Portsmouth across to Alderney, thence Guernsey, Sark, Dielette, Omonville-la-Rogue, Cherbourg, St-Vaast and home. Pleasant trip.

To trevormoffiet: Still there!

Hi Trevor
I'd love to know, for some reason, if they are still there! Mates of ours (Robert Dan and his wife) live just a bit further down Scenic Drive, on the opposite side of course!

To delpeoples: Durdle Door

Hi Lisa

OK: I suppose Durdle Door isn't too sexy a name! Apparently 'Durdle' is derived from the Old English 'thirl', meaning to pierce, bore or drill, which in turn derives from 'thyrel',...

Hi Olivier

It looks fine on my monitor! As I wanted it with backlighting anyway.

To annjackman: Contrast

Hi Ann

The "trick" to handling the contrast was the pouring rain! We partly went into the monastery for shelter; the cloud cover was so low and thick that there wasn't a lot of light outside. ...

To tatadalou: picture quality

Hello Delphine
You're right: the quality is low, blurry, etc., but that was deliberate. I was experimenting with Nik Silver FX Pro, and was trying to emulate an old glass plate negative, with all...

To lousat: Sky

Hi Luciano

Actually the sky is not "artificially" foggy. And I can't account for the strange "halos" around the rooftops either: but it's not the result of any PP interventions. I would never...

To Noel_Byrne: Tyneham

Hi Noel

Somehow the church has remained intact - as has the schoolhouse opposite. I think the church is still consecrated; the schoolroom is now a small museum. No other buildings have survived...

To mjw364: cropping

Hi Mike

Interesting idea, and one that I agree may make the image stronger. My problem is I have an irrational fear of cropping! The only way I will do it is to select the whole image and use...

Sky

Hi Kasia
The way to do it is to change the sky only, by selecting it first. I'll do a WS to show you, if that isn't too presumptuous!

Stuff

Hi John
1. I'll certainly take a look at the site you refer to, as I've been toying with the idea of some black glass for a while now.
2. Yes: polariser and ND filter together may be considered a...

Heroes

Yep: Diane Arbus is a favourite of mine, a liking cemented by a visit to a major retrospective of her work some 15 years ago. I have the same ambivalence as you over "intrusive" photography, and...

Hi John
Rosemary isn't a particularly willing victim! She didn't even realise I was taking this: I just hung back until she was in the right place. But she has endorsed the posting!

To mkamionka: pickpockets

Hi Mariusz
You are right to be wary of pickpockets in El Albaicin: that's exactly what happened to me the day after this photograph was made. So you could say this image cost me about 150 Euros......

To mirosu: B&W

Hello Miro
Actually this isn't a monochrome "conversion", as it was shot on Ilford b&w film, so it's always been monochrome! But certainly the toning was done digitally. When I taught darkroom...

Highway!
Actually, this really is "vintage": at least it's around 25 years old. It was never turned into b&w: Ilford made (and still make) only b&w film, so this was originally developed and...
