  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.

    If you can't find A mode, you should have gone to SpecSavers! :)

    Seriously though, if you want any help just post. Some of the menus are bit fiddly, but these days I only go into them to format the card.

    Another of my "Oxford canal by night" efforts, this time in sinister mono :). In some of them the white balance resolves to something pleasing. But sometimes not!

    Thanks Trevor, within in the past 5/6 months her back foot has turned a bit 'pinky' coloured (??), and when the grass is wet it looks like it's bleeding but it's not, very strange.

    She's not in any pain with it, just a discolouration for some reason, we can't work it out.

    Cheers;
    Peter

    It's usually a sign of the dog licking the paw. A habit they sometimes get into. Can be stress related. We have a rescue Jack Russell who picked up this habit when she was recovering in kennels before we adopted her, and after a year with us is slowly getting out of the habit. Nothing to really worry about if she's otherwise healthy.

    Our German shepherd used to do this, I dabbed Hibiscrub on the paw once a day and she grew out of doing it (probably helped by the taste of Hibiscrub)!

    ...or get it shipped for an extra $71 :)

    I doubt it would go through as its not is stock so plenty of time to pick up the mistake, but hell if you've the cash give it a go.

    Edit: I mentioned it to my wife and she said what about customs... so if calc'd out at full value that could be heading on for another grand couldn't it?
    Edit 2: Did a quick calc - no duty it seems, but VAT at £815 or so, unless its just the value of the sale then that would be around £320

    It's been picked up and confirmed it won't be honoured. All over Facebook and Petapixel apparently (they just remove the lens from your order).

    Yeah, looks like a simple filter mistake (code wise they missed the bit at the end that was something like and offer=1;) or someone flagged up all the lenses as part of a bundle deal.

    Hi all, I've recently bought an X-T10 for holiday photos with the family, instead of lugging my D810's around. But I haven't found a wireless remote release for it and was wondering if anyone could recommend one to me? I know I can trigger using the phone app but I find these quite awkward when posing a family photo and possibly carrying a kid or two! :runaway:

    Oh yeah!? That's weird I wifi'd it to my phone and bumped up the contrast then uploaded it to a host site. Being on a little screen I hadn't noticed. Maybe I used the corduroy preset by mistake ;)

    Thanks! Silver EfexPro is a wondrous thing. Just had to do a bit of wrangling to keep the lettering on the sign readable, as it was really in deep shadow.
