  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Trying out lens and flash again, insects didn't want to play again.

    My setup as from today. I cobbled together the gunstock thing out of a knackered tripod and an old paintball marker stock.

    Hmm, things posted via Flickr seem to lose details for me. Maybe the images I upload are too big and it messes up processing?

    Yes, definitely more detail in the Flickr version (I scraped the forum version from the screen and compared it to a resize of the full size version at Flickr). I get that loss of detail too. I think perhaps everyone does.

    Nice flower all the same, and interesting to see the kit.

    I may have been seeing even more detail loss. Firefox browser was zoomed in to 130%, but I found that it's view settings could be changed to zoom text only which improves all picture resolution. Looks like I've settled a fight between Flickr and the browser which helps.
