just having a quick catch up great pictures everybody. David i do agree with you about manipulating photographs thankfully our tutor is teaching us how to take good shots and look at them with a critical eye, we have another class tonight and another field trip on Saturday.

Looks like a good day out lily, lovely pics, so that is where the pheasant went

David that's a shame, as you seemed to be really enjoying your club. Do any of the other members feel the same?

Hi Ann

hi David it isnt a camera club i go to, it is evening classes run by Cumbria adult education and well worth the cost in my opinion.

its a class of twelve, various ages and abilities and our tutor is a practising photographer with a MA in photography.

David, I cant help as I  we both always use a mac for photos and videos. I find iphoto brilliant. We dont do a lot of manipulation, other than cropping, red eye removal. etc, . I think it spoils things when something has been obviously photoshopped . It becomes art instead of photography.

On our last liveaboard trip to papua new guinea, there was a photo comp on the boat on each trip. We had done three back to back. My OH won the first one on the Great Barrier Reef, won the one around new Britain (Kavieng) and then when presented for the final one , there was a great clapping of hands for his, and the winner was.... an american. There was a stony silence. I was waiting to someone to pipe up that a mistake had been made, but no the free bottle of wine went to an american dentist.  Some privately told OH he had been robbed, but I suspect it had more to do with the size of the tips expected from the  group of californian dentists.

Hi David, have you tried rebooting your PC? That could sort the problem out. Or it could be your hard drive is getting close to maximum capacity. To see how full it is click on the windows explorer icon (bottom left of screen) then right click on the 'C' drive and choose properties. You should then see a pie chart indicating how much space you have left. I make a lot of DVDs and although I have a terabyte hard drive when it gets down to about 200gb I get a similar problem and have to delete unwanted files or transfer to another external hard drive. I usually then also run the disc clean-up program and get rid of a lot of temp. Internet files that slow the PC down. Hope this helps. Been away from my PC for a couple of months since my knee op but must get back to it now - especially as spring is coming. The greenhouse is looking good already. John H
