    nightmare wedding

    If the B & G have had a meeting with the photographer then booked the photog based on having seen samples of their work, it would be more than fair to say that they would know the quality they are getting.

    I can't agree with those above that this a great set. There appears to be some artifacting/halo-ing happening as well - particularly in #1 & #3 - probably from being over sharpened and it ruins the images. How heavily cropped are these? - my educated guess is that it would be fairly heavily...

    ahh..good point. I wasn't even thinking about EF-s lenses.

    haha... There seems to be a bit of that happening in this thread :-)

    new to photography - need some help

    Hmmm.... I reckon you may have mis-read something or been given advice that is just plain wrong. You can't join two seperate lenses together to make longer focal length. Where you maybe getting confused is that due the size of its sensor, your 450D is what is known as a "crop body". That means...

    What is going on?!

    Hmmm... You maybe right. Hasn't been back to the forum since posting these.

    What is going on?!

    Your photos, particularly the ones of the group suggest otherwise. Half the group is in the shade, half in the sun. One would hope, nothing.

    Useful motorsport settings?

    For Canon... AI Servo on, choose mode of preference - Tv, Av or manual, whatever frame rate you want, choose focus point for composition wanted, set shutter speed, ISO and aperture for desired result. Good to go.

    What happens when a model release isn't signed...

    Here's another one. This time from global credit card company VISA 20. When an entrant submits/uploads any material in connection with the promotion, including a Photograph (“Content”), the entrant, unless the Promoter advises otherwise, licenses and grants the Promoter, its...

    What happens when a model release isn't signed...

    Really...? Ever had a close look at the T's&C's for most competitions. Here's one running in Australia at the moment. Point 32 of their TC's & C's 32. When an entrant submits any materials via the Promotion including comments, recordings and images (e.g. photographs) (“Content”)...

    What happens when a model release isn't signed...

    Ooops... Although it's not what happened in this case, this is the sort of thing that can happen when you enter photo competitions where the T's & C's stipulate that the photographer hand over copyright and all rights to the image to be used in perpetuity by those running the comp. Take heed...

    Dingo On Fraiser Island, Australia

    That's a good looking specimen. They're fantastic animals which have received an undeserved bad reputation. Always wanted one as pet and might finally be able to have one soon. Not keen on the first pic - it's basically the south end of a north bound dog. The other two look to be a bit under...

    I agree with the above, but also at my end, it appears to have a green cast to it - possibly from the light reflecting off the grass

    Sturt Desert Pea - Central Australia

    Some stunning examples of South Australia's floral emblem, the Sturt Desert Pea, native to the arid regions of Central Australia. Most Aussies never get to see these in their natural environment. C & C Welcome

    Mt Gillen and West MacDonnell Ranges - Central Australia

    A few images from a climb to the top of Mt Gillen near Alice Springs. A fair climb, but damn, the view was worth a million bucks. C & C Welcome. Next stop...the top.

    Shooting Planes: How do I avoid this issue next time?

    That second shot is a cracker - love it. Lucky or not, good job.

    More planes! My Shoreham Airshow experience 2013

    What a cracking set. Really love the creativity and variety of shots, but not really keen on the positioning of the plane in #1 or the crop of #5, but they're really only a bit of a nit pick.

    Sharon, Final edit ?

    Huh...that makes no sense. How can you have a before and after if both of them are edits? Which one is the original? Or is neither the original?

    Sharon, Final edit ?

    Umm... I'm confused. The second (apparently the after) shot is looser than the first (apparently the before) shot. Are they in the wrong order or have you added in extra background?

    Lancaster Dirty Pass

    Well, I did predict that. That can't be a serious statement. It's so far off course, it's in a different county For the record, I really couldn't give two hoots... I don't look at a person's post count or when they joined before making a comment. If I'm going to make a comment, I don't care...

    Lancaster Dirty Pass

    I was going to leave this as it was but seeing that I've been instructed to reply by a mod in another thread, I will do as asked. I wasn't aware that there was a requirement to respond to moderators - that their decision was final etc, etc... Was it? Really? I thought I was pretty spot on. I...

    Motorsport photography websites

    Webs (formerly Freewebs) is really easy to use. I've been using it since 2008 without any real problems. I'm far from a technolgical genius and if a Luddite like me can use it and not stuff it up, I'd be relatively sure that anybody else can. There's probably things I could to to improve it, but...

    Let's see your amusing sign shots

    ah...bugger. I think I know why. Will try to remedy. Edit - fixed - I think. And just for good measure, here's another one. Trains using a rail corridor - who would have "thunk"it? No wonder I waited so long and didn't see a plane. Wish I'd seen this sign earlier.

    Let's see your amusing sign shots

    and another couple Taken at 2006 (I think) Tour Down Under. On its own the sign isn't that funny, but add some pro cyclists haing a comfort stop and you get and this one at the entrance to Barmera in South Australia
