    I haven't used it yet but I understand it was in the last update.It will be good to try on some of my shots from Japan last year which suffered from extreme haze. I did play about a lot with the contrast and saturation but I struggled to keep the colours true.MikeStatistics: Posted by mikeriach […]

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.
