I've now started dabbling in the dark arts of digital photography, mucking about with RAW format files, buggering about with Photomatix, High-Definition-Range images and tone-mapping.
I'm only really starting out but am quite pleased with some of the shots.
I took a few at Newmillerdam again at the weekend, mostly in wide-angle, but the more I mess with this stuff the more intriguing and addictive it becomes. I've also spawned a lot more closer acquaintances with friends simply through the whole photography thing too, which is nice - and I'm invariably spending way too much time on Flickr.com.
I'm away to Cornwall for a few days soon and I'll be looking forward to getting out and about with the camera then. I also got Jack a point and shoot for his birthday so hopefully he'll get the creative bug too - he already wants to start his own blog!
