    Thanks Bob,

    I didn't see any notices regarding photos and No one stopped me. No ninja antics though - Just placed the camera on the ground lens up and tried to stay out of shot.

    Thanks Rob! I have my EC at +1/3 as default as Canons tend to underexpose a little, but in this case I upped it to +2/3 or 1, can't recall which. This method, which I picked up online somewhere, means that bringing the exposure down in Lightroom gets a nice sky (perhaps a little play with highlights and whites too) , and taking the shadows up will benefit the subject without losing detail and having artefacts show up in the dark areas.

    Cheers Bob- interesting to read... 'Exposing to the right', so the histogram is biased to the white end is something I've read about, always intend to do and then forget all about when shooting! I recently picked up a Yongnuo flash to help with pics of my new daughter, enjoying learning techniques for that at the moment. I posted a flash shot in the 'dogs' thread, but worth posting here as well!

    Lightroom is such a fantastic tool and I think for anyone interested in improving their photography as a hobby it makes more impact than any gear upgrade does...

    All the best Bob,

    Rob

    Lovely shot of the dog Rob, I like the tones. Re flash photography, "The Speedliters Handbook" by Syl Arena is an excellent and easy to understand reference on the subject, I've found it interesing and helpful. You've reminded me of yet another area of photography I've neglected lately!

    I want to say (as the Americans put it) Comet because some models have small cooling air intakes like those but I think I'm probably wrong: The engines should be visible. Can't think what else it might be though.

    I'm pretty sure it was this Hermes ...



    Daylight shot...

    More info here & Image linked from here
    http://www.oldprops.ukhome.net/Hermes%20Photographs.htm

    IIRC this was my picture of the comet intake...



    Although I had had a wee drinky :)

    Indeed. Shame they didn't apply the same radii to the window design. It would have saved a few lives.

    Although my fracture mechanics classes would have been less interesting as a result.

    No idea what it is - just a close up of a sculpture at the Eden Project.

    It looks like this...



    ...If that helps (that one not my image btw)

    I just thought it more interesting if I zoomed in - it reminded me a bit of an electron micrograph from the SEM (scanning electron microscope) - where I spent many an hour when I was at Sheffield Uni in a former life.

    Belated thanks Bob - I have Syls book on order!

    Been playing with the flash gear again this evening, it's great to have something to do with the camera at home, getting out for landscapes is hard at the moment as my five week old daughter has developed pretty bad colic, absolute nightmare!
