    • Many thanks for the suggestions Tim I'm fairly sure I used to shot in RAW when I had my D80, but many, if not all, of the images I took around that time have long since been deleted. The weather here has been up and down all day, so I only managed to find the time to shot a couple of RAW images through my patio door into the garden. This evening, I downloaded Nikon Capture NX-D which allowed me to convert the RAW files into .jpg and I was then able to work on them using Photoshop CS2. I wouldn't say I'm any sort of an expert with the Adobe package, but I know my way around it well enough and that should hopefully provide a fairly good grounding with other packages of a similar ilk. At present, I plan to work on the images using a spare Windows 10 PC rather than remotely on a tablet, so I'll see which one of your suggestions best fits my hardware. Hopefully I'll find the time to take the camera out and about to get some images to work on  
    • Totaly different beast on Vinyl, hope you played it at a nice level, going to have to put it tape no flipping then, just listen to the whole thing right through at a good quality, same as or in many cases better than the vinyl 
    • I've been on the lookout for a set of JBL's for a while after hearing Geoff's and a pair of L100 at Scalford this year....then two pop up on eBay. Wondering if its worth the extra £500 for the 4311 over the L100. I currently have Rogers Studio powered by Quad 909/99, so wondering if I could pair either of these with a low powered sweet valve amp such a Leben, or do they need oomph? Would appreciate any advice on which one to go for and amp to get best results. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JBL-4311-WX-Alnico-Monitor-Speaker-Studio-Monitor-Lautsprecher-excellent/263062970126?_trksid=p2481888.c100678.m3607&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908131621%26meid%3D3db51b1964c64906b322a932fcc776a0%26pid%3D100678%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D11%26sd%3D282573596874&_trkparms=pageci%3A113f7c5a-6f1c-11e7-9040-74dbd18043e1%7Cparentrq%3A6bfb06be15d0a9c4ce7822ccfff85f44%7Ciid%3A1 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-JBL-L100-speakers-matching-serial-numbers/282573596874?_trksid=p2481888.c100678.m3607&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908131621%26meid%3D880c546b65024280b7b7a40330110a23%26pid%3D100678%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D11%26sd%3D282573596874&_trkparms=pageci%3A360c2699-6f1d-11e7-8717-74dbd1804f64%7Cparentrq%3A6c02856b15d0abc1f8ab062ffff7fdd7%7Ciid%3A1
    • I feel a bit of a fake posting here, I'm not a twitcher in the literal sense, but whilst playing about with my new camera for the first time today, I grabbed a quick shot of this regular visitor to my garden:
    • It's not just Pink Floyd or Dire Straits. I listen to a fair bit of 'classical' music, although properly, 'classical' refers to a fairly narrow period between baroque and romantic, but never mind. I love Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Handel etc etc, even Vaughan Williams and Delius to get more modern, but why can't I stand much of 20th Century music, which doesn't have any 'nice tunes' and mostly sounds to me like a piano being thrown down the stairs? As to modern 'pop' music, so much is just (c)rap and so a nasty noise. Age?, familiarity? expectation? S 
    • I think it's something to do with alpha waves maybe. The more you listen and are familiar with the song, it gets to the point you don't get the same satisfaction from it electrically in your brain. But hear it new or relatively new and very good for your tastes, it's like 'brain come' and the neurons are firing like hell. But good to go back to it when you haven't played it for some while. You still get off on it. 
    • Yes dont some people listen to new stuff. How many times can you listen to pink flloyd, dire straits, fleetwood Mac, David Bowie, Roger waters (whose recent solo stuff wasn't great for me) , as much considering the talent of these artists.
