Re: To correct or not to correct? That is the question.

I'd be happy to hear the steps others take to correct blow-outs. 1) Try very hard to get it close in camera and avoid blown highlights. I'd rather have too dark and recover from that vs blown highlights. :lol: 2) Then camera raw corrections -- even on jpg if a raw file is not available. 3) Finally,...

Re: My Neck of the Woods

Do the pictures have to be taken during this January (in the January month), or can we have taken them in any January, or any month, provided they show something that represents January in our neck of the woods? I guess, in a roundabout way I am asking whether we can shoebox... K. Shoeboxing is fin...

Re: My Neck of the Woods

So is this a regular contest like the alphabet challenge where we can enter up to 5 times? Or is it the new calendar challenge where we enter once and have to enter January to be eligible for the following months, and follow a theme? It's a regular Bonus contest where you can enter up to 5 images a...

Re: To correct or not to correct? That is the question.

Hi Amy Firstly, that's a great collection of work on your site, congrats. Blown out bits ... yes that's a difficult area. I started with photography many years ago and learned, probably same as you, that blown out highlights are an exposure fault and therefore a bad thing. I still kinda see it like ...

Re: 12 Hours of Christmas

Sorry, I completely missed out on this due to an extremely busy week. Two Christmasses, one last weekend for my son and granddaughter up from London, then another on the actual Christmas day, then a heap of worry with my sister in law taken into hospital on the 25th ... beam me up Scotty. You did go...

Re: Changes as it happened .. tales from the QM deck

You Quartermaster guys are doing a fabulous job keeping this place going and I still feel so bad that I have not been able to stay along for the ride. My studies have kept me manically busy these past three years, but I am having a break over this summer, so of course, came straight back here to se...
