    The hairy bikers diet book (second one I think) had a way of making baskets out of tortilla by using a ball of tinfoil and roasting them over the tinfoil then using a tumbler to make a flat base, I found the coke Cola tumbler was prefect for it. Gives a nice crunchy texture with corn tortilla.

    If your just starting out and learning, keep all your images and revisit them when you have increased your skills in photo editing as your can have a rubbish image today but in a years time it may be a good image.

    I use it and I think the view is if your shooting Raw then you will need to do some minor adjustments in a photo editor to some degree as the raw image won't reflect the scene as your eye would see it. Framing the shot by taking your time with setting up your composition will be crucial to a decent photo. If this is wrong then its difficult to come back from it even with crops and clarity saturation etc in LR.

    I'm looking at buying some nd(big stopper) filters and would appreciate your thoughts on it. I shoot occasionally and mostly always landscapes. Currently I have 4 lenses 2 of those have a 52 mm diameter so that would mean I would most likely need three adapters to fit a filter holder. I've been looking at Lee and it can get quite expensive. Is it worth going for Lee and just biting the bullet or is there a cheeper alternative that will do me for the occasional use? Thanks

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

    Steak

    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.

    Steak

    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.

    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

    what browser are you using and are there any adons that may interfere? I have three setup and they all just redirect to the browser to authorise LR then it's plain sailing.

    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.
