    and this is a bit busy, like London is

    I'm not brilliant at manual focus but I sort of like it.

    Dispersion in these two; the strain the strain.

    Shiny bloke on a smelly thing. Smelly vision now that would be good.

    Amazing thing about this place is that these are within spitting distance of each other.

    I'm not sure about the Morris Dancers, Steve. Possibly a slow shutter speed but probably you used too shallow a depth of field to give a bit of distance from the crowd and the front dancer has come just a little bit in front of the focus point.

    These fast action shots are always difficult to decide what settings to use.

    I would suggest that the girls night out just needs a little bit of selective brightness. I think that I might try adding a little adjustment on a layer and mask then slightly reduce the level on the right side.

    But it does need a bit of light to dark range in order to give plenty of apparent depth so I wouldn't do a great deal more with it. Too bright will lose the atmosphere.

    And talking about brightness, I think you have captured the Horseguard exposure perfectly. And that was obviously a difficult one.

    I don't know what happened to make the demo difficult; seperation caused by dispersion, a dull look ect. Actually I took my time with the horseguard, I was there at least fifteen minutes waiting.

    More effort done on the Horseguard. Cheers Geoff
