    How true! The latest attempt to sell my father's home fell thru because the buyer agreed to the price, but the bank didn't even bother to appraise it. They looked at it on satellite and told them it wasn't worth that much. They told us it was worth less than the neighbor would have bought […]

  • Digital Workflow and PP • Re: Bought a Dell U2415 monitor January 22, 2017
    I am liking this new 24 inch monitor and working on photos is more of a pleasure using it. The size for me seems to be the sweet spot.

    Thanks, Sury and Yildiz! I recall I was driving along a California highway one morning and saw this tree. I immediately pulled over and parked so I could take a photo. It was so brilliant and luminous I couldn't just drive by. Let's make this a Tree Photo thread! Please, anyone can post tree photos […]

B&H has Hasselblad HV offer again

Hasselblad HV from B&H

I feel slightly sick… I’ve spent so much on buying and replacing successive Sony A7 series cameras and their lenses that I can’t just buy this outright, which I would love to do.

Frank’s a definite Alpha Male

We shall be sending Frank Doorhof one of our original and rare Alpha Male T-shirts, in black, though I’m not sure we have anything quite large enough to fit him – which goes for his personality too.

Sony’s Alpha 99 – mastery wrapped in dilemma

The launch of and initial reaction to Sony’s Alpha 99 has been spoiled, for many, by the overpricing of the camera generally and to a greater degree in some key markets.
