Hello Brian

How are you?

The weather and light was so poor that I gave up on the 5k run.

However, yesterday was my first free day with perfect light. I had to travel to Manchester to stock up on my stores from the Chinese Emporium so I took my camera along for the ride sans seat and sans tripod ( I forgot to take my filters). I only went with my 18-55mm lens and for the first time ever I saw the fisheye effect (Hmmm).

Here are 9 images from Manchester, UK between 10.00 and 11.30am (GMT).

These are the best of 142. The reflections and shadows were all over the place causing problems on the histogram so most shots needed shadow boost and sharpening which I have tried not to overdo.

Would you please cast your eye over these images and let me have your criticism and what corrective measures you would have taken.

I feel my progress has been maintained, unless you tell me otherwise.

9 out of 142! Bearing in mind these are not for posterity only the trashcan and none were deleted on site, which I could have done and not counted them, would you please tell me what you personally would have expected within an hour and a half in a big city.

As a side issue: I know Mozart would not wear a powdered wig nor avoid modern technology in his music today, what do you feel Anselm Adams and his ilk would make of what we take for granted? (I looked up some older stuff when you said the D50 was as capable as quite a few cameras before it's release). Would they embrace Paintshop Pro?

Do you feel that Auto choices made by the camera have continually improved since the year 2,000?

Kindest regards

Philip
