Re: How to overcome reflections while shooting through glass?

Re: Snaar snaps: Village in Spring

Great series of pictures.

You have the knack of turning the "ordinary everday things we take for granted" into a "sense of wonder".

Just had a look at your photos - beautiful. I think I'll hang up my camera in shame - I've been to Bletchley Park but never caught the atmosphere of the place.

Re: Olympus UK E-System User Group free BLM-1 battery awards
