In the spirit of regular contributions, I'm posting this image. A free bag of onions to whoever first guesses what this is.

Your thoughts? Too much black? Not enough? Does it need more puppies?

Keeping the ball rolling?

I thought I should add something, anything, in light of today's email.

I played a little with Adam's image, desaturating the red and yellow a lot. The idea was to make things look gloomier. I wanted to keep the sky fairly colourful, though, to emphasize the gloomy foreground. It was a very quick and dirty fiddle. Thoughts?

BTW, is this some sort of tidal river?

Back from the dead......

I'm back and promise to post at least once a's a shot a took at sunset in march at Blakeney. Any thoughts welcome. 24mm, f11, 1/10, iso 100, with tripod. Adjusted levels in LR2 and used LR2 graduated filter to darken sky two stops. With regard to the discussion around calibration, I've used Spyder2 for a couple of years and I'm very happy...more soon, A.

Well I don't want to be the one that causes the collapse of Critical Light so I vow to post at least one blog a month...well, we will see...

So, here are a few pics from past Pride Parades. Another is coming up this month and I always find them a photographic treat...
