Re: New printer required.

I would recommend Epson - they have dependable photo ink technology. Models compatible with UltraChrome pigmented inks are the best. Durabrite are more for text and graphics printing on plain paper....

Re: Salon 263 - Abstract

Oh dear! :) I though this would be an easy salon!

Re: GoPro for still shots

I use a GoPro alternative (a Yi 4K+) and it's excellent as either a still or video camera - underwater as well. The main compromise is the fixed-focus lens, but nevertheless some excellent images can...

Re: Before and After: - show your post-processing prowess

It's amazing how much detail and colour that can be recovered in post-processing. This is a nice example of highlight recovery as well - I feel an article about this brewing :)

Re: Before and After: - show your post-processing prowess

I personally don't do so much of this kind of editing so it's great to see it being done by someone else - maybe I should do more!

Re: Salon 262 - Black and White

By the way I very much like the idea of a post-processing challenge but I think we should do that separately - I can get that started if we're all agreed?

Re: Salon 262 - Black and White

Amazing - thanks Pat; you're right though - smartphones are now incredibly good at certain photography challenges.

Not that I'm always on holiday - but a perk of my work is that I travel a lot.
