  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.

    @Mike S - I really like the atmosphere captured here.
    Could be a WWII secret midnight landing scene

    @Amar 'Revery' ... lovely.

    @Mike S The razor wire gives an otherwise idyllic picture a twist. Like

    where is that Yurivv? I've stayed at the royal in Moscow, but that's a shiny tower block IIRC.

    This is Tula, 100 miles south from Moscow, a view from the window of my office today.

    How are you getting on with all the new lenses? Keen to hear which is your favourite!

    Nice! I hope you were able to sample their wares? :D

    Here's one from my new (to me) Nikkor 50mm f1.2 AI-S. Not the most original shot and yes, most of the image is out of focus (I focussed on the central flower heads). However, I liked the almost '3D rendering' of the lens. This lens probably isn't any good by modern standards, but I can tell that I'm going to really enjoy its character. Can't wait to use it in the field :)

    Indeed, it was the monthly "Open Tap Takeover" a meeting with the brewers, where we can taste and comment on future brews, and drink special test brews from the microbrewery. They even give you the first pint free! I then have to walk the 200 yrds home....

    First one with my new Olympus 60 2.8 Macro - quite pleased with it so far, and the IBIS is certainly effective for this sort of stuff:

    One from the winter, sometimes easy to overlook how versatile the Fuji 18-55 is, must have only taken about 50 shots with mine because I was struck down with a severe case of GAS and splashed out on a 16-55 shortly after getting the XT-2 +18-55 kit.

    Nice, thought it was just me who visited Fleetwood! Heysham lurking there in the background.

    Steve, that is simply beautiful. Thanks for sharing what to me is a striking, stand out photograph.

    One from Tenerife that I've only just got round to processing:

    Thanks, I like Fleetwood, the sort of place where nothing happens. There's a really good chip shop if you follow the main road past Fleetwood museum - it's on the right just before the roundabout where ASDA is.

    Thanks Tony, it was one of those rare ones where I know it was going to work before I pressed the shutter.
