Arguably, a nicer variant.

I won't be coming today. The cold or 'flu that I have been fighting for the past few weeks has taken hold and I don't want to infect anyone else (like the person that infected me).

Have fun and Happy Birthday D70Users.

Thanks Gary for your hospitality today and to all who attended for a good morning of chatting and playing with "stuff". It was good to meet some of you in person for the first time.

The D800 shots are all perfectly readably in Aperture, thanks Greg for letting me play. So many pixels…

Likewise, thanks Gary and De for the awesome layout and hospitality. Also many thanks Matt for the bag of film, despite my misunderstanding.
Regards, Patrick

Two or three lights, any lens on a light-tight box are sufficient for the realisation of the most convincing image. Man Ray 1935.

What can I say.
Thank you. An excellent day out, Shame about the location. (About 80km west would have been better ;) )

and I'll ditto all of the above... I'm always up for a coffee chat and nibbles... in whatever order... the incidental photography discussions and gear show 'n tell a bonus !!!
I'm particularly keen to see results from the Heliopan CPL.

I'm not that silly. I'm about 90Km from you. 80Km would just about get you to Colin's abode. :lol:

mmm... well depending on numbers, timing, phase and colour of the moon... we could have a do at my place which is somewhere in between far east and mystic west.
This could be coordinated with a photoshop session quite possibly, I'll just plug a puter into the tv.
Alternatively I might see about getting access to one of the meeting rooms we have around here which is something I need to explore for a model shoot day anyway.
