    I’m np longer qualified to make judgement comments. My eyes have deteriorated to a point where nothing is clear any more. I’m deemed to be legally blind’
    Just tonight I looked at the crescent moon with double vision. close right eye and the left sees double. close the left and the right was producing triple vision.

    Sorry about your sight Doogie. Keep on keeping on.

    Technical information. The bee is a bog standard image taken with a 24 – 85 mm kit lens. Cathedral is Exeter, if you go on the roof tour you will be taken outside the East Window where one section can be removed and you can put your head inside, lens 12 – 24 mm on a full frame camera. QM2 is a panorama of two images. Box is an attempt at HDR, from the same image different exposures for the inside and the outside, the windows are cut out on the inside image to show the outside. There is some lightening around the black stove, the black was sucking in all the light. The most popular picture on Gurushots was the Cathedral. QM2, bee and last Box. Thanks for the feedback. I tried taking a similar picture to QM2 on Saturday but I had somehow set exposure compensation, so when I set up the manual exposure each image was given a different exposure, well that gives me an excuse to go back again.

    Here are two pictures that I took on Saturday of the same scene. One of them is cut out from a shot taken with a wide angle lens the other is a panorama of six shots. May be Photoshop Elements has managed to sort out the exposure problems.

    Oh doogie, I too am extremely sorry to hear about your failing eyesight….for those of us dependent on it to the extent of our creative passions I think it is doubly hard to accept. I had a young friend some time ago who was a brilliant paint artist and he got cancer in one eye – had it removed. He now is writing classical music scores instead.
    The point of telling you that is in the hope you also will find another creative passion to pursue, using different faculties. Meantime, I hope you continue to enjoy those beautiful birds that visit your garden and to revel in their song. All the best… P

    Thanks folks.
    I still take photos with difficulty. I wont give up on that. I now rely totally on auto shoot.
    I can’t express enough to have your eyes checked every two years. It was on the second year examination glaucoma was discovered in my eyes. It is now in an advanced state.
    Back lit screens I can (TV/ monitor screens) Reading is out. Talking books are great.

    I’m sorry to hear that, Doogie. I saw my Dad in his fifties go slowly blind with a disease in the back of both eyes. It was amazing the way he learned to do all sorts of things. You are right to not give up doing what you enjoy. Good on you!!

    Both on the Port Hills Christchurch. The road the red car has come up to the Sign of the Kiwi will lead you down to the end of Colombo Street. Turn left out of the Sign of the Kiwi and you will arrive after a few kilometers at the Sign of the Bellbird.
