    As for the second, I really will have to get more familiar with GIMP :-)

    Once again, many thanks.
    I am just an amateur photographer...and I take many images that mean nothing to others but much to Moi.
    As I said, I was no one to critic...just offer some suggestions. I play around with my pictures...and then there are those that are perfect from the snap.

    Four Part you are correct that when you close in on a photo you thought was sharp it may not be. It is all about learning the camera and growing in your abilities.

    Practice makes perfect!

    Re: Pictures Taken By You...

    I did have a photo that I took years ago that to anyone else would be totally meaningless, but they wouldn't even know what it was.

    I had taken my camera & tripod down to the shore during a really amazing lightning storm & there were loads of instances of that rare occurence of Ball Lightning, which I actually managed to catch a snap of.

    When the photo came out (pre-digital) it even had a note on it from the developers that it looked as If I had move the camera. This much I knew not to be the case.

    All that was visible was a string of thin, curve lines, with something like a barb at the bottom.

    I occured to me that this was revealing was Ball Lightning really was - not a 'Ball' at all - that's just how the eye interprets it, but a series of rapid strikes hitting the water, reversing polarity & bouncing off it, over & over again until it ran out of energy.

    Yet, unless you knew what it was a picture of, there would be no way of telling.

    I've no idea where it is at the moment. I know I've still got it somewhere, but this place is a tip at the best of times.

    Me too. Now that the sun's up I'm just about to head off to bed & sleep through it.

    David Bailey? Who's he?
    (Takes you back, those who remember what I'm talking about)

    Not exactly a Professional Portrait, but as Da Beasty (aka B.J. - Beast Junior) is such a star in his own right, I thought I'd give him a place in the Boulevard of Fame.

    Incidentally that Black Front Panel used to be silver, like the rest of the bike, before it got ripped off in order to Hot Wire it. John, at the shop, was very apologetic that he couldn't get one to match. Personally I reckon it looks better that way.
