    Britannia at Aisgill Moor, Cumbria

    I have put this picture here because I think the one I entered in a mini competition may have confused someone.
    In our club image competitions, when they are projected they have to be sized 1400pixels wide 1050pixels high
    with the constained and resample boxes ticked. Most times this can leave an image with either a black or white border when an image is resized to the pixels as above. If the picture is a horizontal picture then in the first instance the width size is set to 1400 pixels. Whatever size this then shows in the height box, that figure is taken away from 1050 pixels. Then go back to the resize box, but this time resize the CANVAS with the figure which was the difference between 1050 and that shown in the first instance. So. Say you have a horizontal picture resized to 1400 pixel wide, and this then shows the height as 850. The height 850 is taken away from 1050 (the required height for club projection, leaving a differnce of 200. You then go back to the Image resize box, but go to the Canvas size and put in 200 pixels. When you go back and look at the image size it should say 1400 x 1050. This is how we set images up for our image competitions. For Verticals, it is the other way aound. Set the height at 1050, make a note of the width pixels: minus this from 1400, putting the difference in the CANVAS sizing box, and this should show an image 1050 x1400, but in both instances the images will have a black (or White if so chosen The image in the mini competition after resizing finished a with a complete black border. (I will try to avoid putting images in like this again)

    Great photo how often do you get a chance to shoot this type of shot. Do they ever run in winter?
