Warning - Scam camera sales web site

Evenin' all. Whilst checking prices for the new EOS R6 I came across "Gabbys Cameras" - came up in a Google search in the promoted ads part - their price was £400 cheaper than the rest (which were all the same - not surprising at launch time) which sparked my interest. Sure enough, further digging f...

Re: 48 Hours Photo Competition - Lumps, Bumps and Pointy Bits

Wow - some cracking shots there - thanks to all that participated! I particularly like some of the historic shots such as the EA-3B and the bumpy Andover (had totally forgotten about that one!) plus a goodly selection of Russian experimental and AEW stuff, but the stand-out shot for me is Rebel14/Ma...

Evening all, Having pleased Paul with my Norrie shot, I present my theme - lumps, bumps and pointy bits. Basically any "special" versions of standard airframes used for recce, testing, AEW or other special purposes - the older the better! Max of four shots this time as I have four that I want to put...

Re: Noise reduction

Hi Stuart, I would concur with Trevor - you already have an answer in Nik. I use both Nik Dfine (an earlier version Dfine2 from its freebie Google days) and another (paid) product - NeatImage for noise reduction. There is very little difference between them as regards getting rid of blue-sky noise b...

Re: Social Distance Spotting

"You can sit in the sun in your local park" When you go outside you may visit your local park but only with members of your own household. All seems fairly understandable to me and commonsense (sadly lacking I agree) should indicate that 'social distancing" should still be applied! To be honest thi...

Photoshop CC 2020 error - warning!

A word of warning for those using Photoshop Creative Cloud 2020 - the new version (out yesterday V21.1.0) has a serious bug in that various tools (lasso, marquee, clone stamp, smudge/blur, healing brush etc.) create an additional area of change that has nothing to do with the area you are selecting/...

As there are no operational aircraft at Tripolis, I have put this post here rather than with the rest of the base visits in Modern Military. As Tripolis was en-route between Kalamata and Elefsina it would have been rude not to stop. At the gate I was given a strict "no photography" instruc...
