Swans on the Great Ouse


Six swans a swimming


Romantic swans (Yes they really do make their necks into a heart shape)

Unexpectedly ended up going to St Neots last week. Apparently the Great Ouse is 143 miles long and the fourth longest in the UK. It seems to have a big swan population. 

Both taken on the Fujifilm X10 and jpgs processed in ACR, Photoshop and PhotoFrame 4.6 free edition.

Ireland 2002

My daughter reminded me today of a trip to Ireland in 2002. Photographed with our first digital camera – an
Olympus C900z. Run through ACR ten years later…

The new Mrs Lester-George

My darling daughter on her wedding day. Going down the Avon to the Grain Barge. Doesn’t she look happy!

JPEG processed in ACR with a ‘filmstock’ colour look-up adjustment layer added in Photoshop. I am getting a bit obsessed with the new colour look-up adjustments in CS6. They give such instant oomph.
