Re: Capturing a scene the old way

Goodness Gracious!

Great ball of fire...

When we looked at this house on the south coast, we asked if they got nice sunsets. They said "oh, yes.."

Brownsea Island sunset. Longer lens debate.

So, from our new toe hold on the south coast: We went for a walk on the sea front at sunset yesterday and the brisk breeze made for fairly clear air.

So here is Sandbanks and Brownsea island at...

Re: This is the BBC Home Service

Upside down valves are quite common in guitar amps. In fact some valves are produced with inverted printing as a result.

Re: Olympus BCL 9mm Fisheye

There's a quick and dirty fix for purple fringing that I use a lot. In Photoshop and Elements there is a Noise Reduce option. Set strength to 1 (so it has almost no effect on the image sharpness) and...

Re: Bent Fenders (may contain valves)

There's quite a story behind Pentodes, Tetrodes and Beam Tetrodes - mainly to do with patents and valve performance.
