Just popped in to say that a few weeks ago I bought a Canon 'Selphy CP900' photo printer and can say that I'm delighted with it......the quality of prints are up to laboratory standard.

Canon claim that the prints will not fade & will last for a hundred years. It will print using WiFi from your mobile phone, also straight from your memory card or camera, or from your PC.

The only downside I've encountered is that it will only use original ink (one cartridge) and print size is restricted to postcard, max and Canon paper.

Lots of reviews on YouTube.

Very nice, Brumbull......I agree, the flower (dahlia?) is a masterpiece of nature's design.

No,my other half took the photo in Cocos (keeling) island , indian Ocean. we were 25metre down. The best aquarium in the world.  The cleaner shrimps will clean, finger nails, pedicure bare feet, and if you open your mouth and take the regulator out, they will clean teeth.

This is the best dressed scarecrow I have ever seen. I would drive by her every day to and from work - finally I had to take her picture.

For those who would be interested, understanding & choosing the right 'white balance' setting on your camera is quite important to taking good photos. I was surprised to learn that it is based on a heat scale rather than light.

Rather than going to the trouble to type out a whole rigmarole that wouldn't explain it properly anyway, I've opted to post this useful link.

I'm never really quite sure what makes a photo special. I have a little Canon Ixus which I just put on automatic and I point it at scenes I like, or family - whatever I would like to have a memory of. Photos like this one of where we stayed in the Gorges du Tarn.

 Lizzie - I would say that this is an excellent photo.

You ask 'what makes a photo special. Well, IMHO if it pleases the person taking it, then it is special. However.I do know a few things that judges look for when judging competitions.

You may find googling 'rule of thirds' will be helpful.

In the rule of thirds, photos are divided into thirds with two imaginary lines vertically and two lines horizontally making three columns, three rows, and nine sections in the images. Important compositional elements and leading lines are placed on or near the imaginary lines and where the lines intersect.

Nice shots, KEF....I kinda guessed they weren't taken Bognor Regis.

Nice photos.

It woud be nice if posters could state which camera they used & settings/exif data etc with each photo.


Agreed, but if the photos are taken in 'auto', it maybe a problem (time consuming at least) to retrieve the shooting data.
