taught

Hi again Elvira

Your English is perfect: taught it is! By the way, I failed "O" Level German: the only exam I ever failed... By the way again, your surname sounds quite English...

Wink churchill

Hi John

Again, and of course, you're quite right. I was conscious of the ironic Churchillian reference! Apparently (you have probably heard this before), another of his witticisms involved him...

Wink postcards

Hi Elvira

You and me both! I'm sure we all want to take images of famous, iconic places: it would be daft to go to Venice and come back with no photographs of Piazza San Marco! I've got my fair...

Copyright

Yes I'm in agreement too. For a start, the size of images on this site are relatively small: I wouldn't bother stealing an image that was only around 3mpg (all mine are saved as 100mg 16 bit-depth...

Points

Here, here! Points don't mean prizes! I absolutely endorse Klaudio's view, and note that at least one of the Moderators is in agreement. This site is in danger of becoming meaningless, as witness...

Edit Button

Hi tecchies,

What's happened to the Edit button on critiques? The problem was highlighted by Gert Holmertz several days ago, but it hasn't been fixed, and apart from a reply saying it was a...

To tyro: Wide angle

Hi John

Of course you're right about how much cathedral you could squeeze into the frame with the ultra-wide angle Sigma. Then again, how much perspective distortion up with which are you...

Resizing

Hello John and Gert

Sorry to butt in! With reference to John's comment about resizing: I'm confused. These days I tend to post images that are 920 pixels tall; that's around 1380 pixels wide for...

To Royaldevon: Negative impression

Hi Bev

I didn't really have such a negative impression: it's just the pretentious claptrap I come out with to fill out the notes!

monochrome

Hi Gilles
I see we are both b/w (n/b) fans. I used to teach darkroom techniques, so am very familiar with the Zone System. I still use a version of it in Photoshop. In Levels, you have a 0 - 255...

To Noel_Byrne: movie

Hello Noel
Thanks for your kind comments on this one. I know what you mean about the movie from yesteryear feel. I'm thinking "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning", "A Taste of Honey", "Billy Liar",...

To holmertz: steepness

Hello Gert
Thanks for your kind comments. If anything the wide-angle treatment has flattened the effect of the steep hill. It was a short but very steep!

the Dark Side

Hi Gyorgy

I agree about the Dark Side, and often deliberately under-expose by 1/2 stop. But exposure and saturation aren't the same thing!

Hi Boa

I post images at about 920 px wide - best I've found for display purposes on TE and Beta TE (where the images can be seen larger); file size is generally around 1- 1.5 mb. Although we're...

site crashing

Hi tecchies

It seems from John's report that this is not a problem unique to me. For the record, I'm running Mozilla Firefox on Windows 7. Something needs to be done! N.B. I reported this a...

Site crashing

Hi tecchies

I don't know if this problem is unique to me, but it doesn't happen on other sites, so I'm guessing it's a problem at server or source. The site works fine for the first few minutes;...

I'm glad you had so much fun with the collage! But as I'm sure you know, your little game is all your own: I had no such clever message to impart, just realised that I had several...

Hi Les

No, not Silver Efex, though I do use it sometimes. This just uses a careful control of tones, using Ansel Adams' classic "zone system" applied to a digital file (easy when, in Levels,...
