To tyro: Isle of May

Hi John, thanks for your comments. Yes, I'd definitely recommend a visit to the Isle of May - I found it to be a very special place - quite unlike anywhere else I've been. I was there in May which is...

To chpp: Not ice, but mud!

Hi Chris, no it's not frozen; the tide is out and we are looking at the mud left behind. There is just a trickle of water remaining, which you can see just left of centre. Cheers, Colin.

Hi Ron, yes you're right - the tide is out in Holbrook Creek and we are looking at the mud left behind. There is just a trickle of water remaining, which you can see just left of centre. Cheers,...

To jazu: Sigma 18-200 lens

Hi Jazu, thanks for your comments. I am very pleased with the 18-200 - it lives on my camera most of the time. I originally had the kit lens and although I didn't find it as bad as many people seem...

To jmcl: Dark skies

Hi John,

thanks for the comment. I've had a look at your gallery and you do seem to like deep blue skies! Do you use a grad ND filter to get that effect, or is it just the polariser?

Cheers,

To miumiu: Plants

Hi Agnes,

thanks for your kind comments on my photos! Yes, I think the grass and plants growing on top of the stonework just underlines the age. Hundreds of years of seeds and plants being dropped...

To robertosalguero: Original version

Hi Roberto, I agree about the harsh light - think I'll have to invest in some ND grads. I've taken up your suggestion and posted the original version in a workshop. I'd be interested to read your...

Re: To cpaton: Canon cameras

Hi Chris,

For me, the biggest benefit of going digital was the instant results. With film, I used to go off on holiday, fire off umpteen rolls of 35mm, then when I got home, the last roll would...

To shirgold: Strange glow

I know what you mean about the glare. This photo was taken on 35mm film, and I had it printed commercially. I also had them provide scans on a CD-ROM. The aura, as I prefer to call it, is visible on...

Re: To cpaton: bring your wet suit

Hi greg,

Angkor Wat is also near the top of my list of places to visit. I haven't made any plans yet for next year, so perhaps I'll see you there!

Re: To cpaton: Thank you very much

Hi Setenay,

Re: To cpaton: hi

Thanks David. I don't know about the 'extra datafile', but I've always found that the EXIF data is actually embedded in the JPEG. If you look at the file in Windows Explorer, select 'properties',...
