    I like the way the saturation is dialed back on that image, its in keeping with the cars era. The beige shirts help.

    Ribeye for sure, I would have to disagree with putting it in the freezer just before cooking as every chef on TV advises to leave meat to get to room temperature and also to oil the meat and not the pan for steaks. Always finish with butter as it makes a big difference.

    Are you using shin? if so you want to do it slow and low, I usually cook shin with bone in for around 6-8 hours at 140-150 shin is extremely tough so make sure it's had plenty of time to cook and well rested if your aiming to have it as a steak I.e individual chunks of meat. The way I do my shin is similar to a pulled pork style as its usually a chilli or a bolognes.

    Food Prepping

    I have made that dish a few times. It needs the fluids cut back and less creme fresh in the potato. If you let them both fully cool and chill in the fridge it helps too.

    Not sure where you can get some scanning done but be aware that some old photographs have some more awful textured paper and don't scann very well. My parents wedding pics are like this and I need to work them to try and remove the texture from the scanned results. Ultimately I will need to scann them 4 times to try and resolve this. Good luck

    Is the vignetting in the couple of images post processing or is it the adapter/lens?

    If your interested in doing some landscape stuff take a look at Thomas Heaton on YouTube also. He's not so technical but I find his videos inspirational to get up and go out. I bought a magazine earlier last year that gave some great detail about photography and explained the details about focal length, crop sensors etc, I'll see if I can dig it out to get the name. I think it was landscape photography for beginners but will check. I too have a 70-300 and it's good for shots of the moon amongst other things. Edit: I can't find the mag, think I have thrown it out but had a search through Google and it looks like it was beginners guide to landscape photography. It explains the rule of thirds exposure and much more.

    I have the D3300 and can't fault it, the image quality I get with the kit lens is great (mainly landscape) I've been using it for a year as a beginner and have found it easy to get to grips with. I have 2 other lenses a 70-300 sigma and a 10-20. I signed up for the cloud package as I could afford it and have a project to digitise my mother's collection i of photos and the package gave me the options I need to restore some images. It is a bit much for a hobby. The standalone lightroom is what I'm using 90%of the time so would think this would suffice most ppl. As Above its a slippery slope I've spent quite a few quid over the last year on gear. Go out take pics and enjoy. I do love the moment of loading the images in to the laptop hoping there is a good one there. Cheers

    Vegetarian / Vegan recipes

    I made this yesterday, however I used my own spice mix. 3 tablespoons of chilli powder seemed excessive. Did you follow it to the letter? I like spicy food but 1 jalapeño and 1 teaspoon of chili power was enough for my family I could have had a bit spicier.
