Re: Christmas Wants List

No contest - a Canon EOS 50D. However, if Santa is a bit strapped for cash I don't mind a 500D. My 350D is decidely limited. :-d

Re: “Grammar is not a time of waste”

Re: October Print Comp

Re: Competition #43 - 'PRIDE'

This is my heritage - the beautiful Lake District. This is just one little part, Patterdale Valley looking across towards the Helvellyn range. I was born in Cumbria and spent many years exploring 'God's Little Acre', before moving to the Manchester area for work reasons. I miss not being able to be ...

Re: Studio shoot competition

On the contrary, thank you Paul for taking the time to assess the photos and give some really welcome advice and most importantly for me - encouragement to go and try again! I really appreciate that as it is the first time I've plucked up the courage to display any of my shots!

Re: Studio shoot competition

Thought I'd have a go with this ... it was incredibly difficult to select two images out of all those I shot, because Rebecca was so good! Anyway here goes!
