"Re that pic you were trying to zoom in on - would it help if I give you the original pic? That was a cropped one." Thank you Fg, but it wouldn't help.

Pleased to hear your getting some enjoyment from editing your pics (as you know) a little tweak here & there does make a big difference and perhaps justifies my starting this thread.

I'm not too keen on drastic alteration normally associated with 'Photoshop', it (for me) makes them total fact, it's an issue that prompted me to quit my camera club.

For what it's worth, although a few tweaks can be made using Photobucket, I prefer to use MS's Windows.

I wish I had red squirrels. I just have three fat greys, stuffing themselves on the blackbirds food.


Me too!

Fairygirl is so lucky to have such beautiful countryside nearby.

As you will know, BBC's Winterwatch is broadcast live from the Cairngorms this year. Last night I was fascinated by the duel being played-out between a fox & a golden eagle, fighting over a deer carcass.

 Fairygirl, your pictures are always so gorgeous, it's hard for me persuade anyone to venture away from using their cameras on anything but auto settings. 

Wndered what you thought of the above bit of tinkering?

Wishing you the happiest of birthdays, Dove. xxxxx

People squabble. people flounce and people leave, but you are the stabilising influence that (more or less) keeps this place ticking over smoothly.

Enjoy your special day!

Only maincrop spuds will store.

To my knowledge no one variety has a longer storage life than another........the storage life is much more likely to be decided by the storage conditions.

Well done Lesley & Fairy.....more excellent shots, thank you.

I'm pleased to hear your experimenting, Fairy. When I started this thread, I hoped it would encourage photography and if I can be of any help (even in a small way) I'm only too willing to try.
