  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    ...Loads of castles where I live.

    Snapped these ones of Moyry Castle near the North/South Irish border.

    Opinions/suggestions (I don't have Photoshop :()?

    EDIT: I just changed the images to the ones Photoshoped by Cliff...

    It looks like a little square-shaped wimble person with arms by its sides.

    ha, ha, the round corners are unusual for a castle of that era apparently.

    Makes it very photogenic I think...

    Are there any Photoshop pro's out there that want to play with the original files. I'd like to see the before/afters as I'm a novice.

    Andy,

    The top one looks OK to me, although the blue sky could be bluer - you might want to try a PL filter next time. Failing that a little curving and sharpening might help which you can do in Capture NX - 60 day trial here

    Feel free to PM me a link to the original RAW file if you have it.

    Cliff,

    I only have them as jpegs'...told you I was a novice.:)

    I must admit I am a wee bit of a castle annorak and want to get a collection of photos together to get framed. My next subject is this beauty ofm a wreck that's hidden away and barely seen by anyone, especially tourists. It's actually massive (crap photo but I was rushed on the day with kiddies to sort out).

    You can see the barrel distortion on my lense...

    Hi andy

    if you shoot a regular pattern as a test at each focal length, you can work out the parameters needed to fix the distortion on the lens. I have had a go based on my feel for what it should look like:
