What are you celebrating today?

Always a popular thread at the other place.

I'll kick this one off.

It was my birthday the other day. I was expecting a bottle of my favourite perfume (I've been dropping hints I was running low) and woke up to a Land Rover Freelander on the drive. I've always wanted a 4x4 and now I've finally got one courtesy of my Mum and my Significant Other Half.

Okay, so it's not a new one and it's not an all singing, all dancing model, but that doesn't bother me. It's a freaking Freelander, dudes!


Mine's a white soft top like the one in the foreground.

Downside - I'll have to fund my own bottle of smellies. Oh hold on - there's Mother's Day coming up...

I found a spelling error in my profile and corrected it.

Thanks, guys. My goodness, my brain is rusty! But there were a few things I did well, so that was a relief. Because I have to complete what is a two year full time course in twelve months, the assignments are a bit of a challenge. I have ten to do before the end of July. I have completed many of the same subjects previously, and done more than the equivalent, but I never got my piece of paper, as I got seriously ill twice, and finally gave up. I needed to work, I needed to raise my son, but I didn't need to study. That was twenty years ago, and every one of those brain cells has died or moved to a far country! LOL

The one bad thing is that I know I am going to have a speeding fine sent to my boss! I planted my foot to get past some traffic, looked at the side of the road, and saw the flash as the radar took a little photo of me. It will be in colour, and detailed, and my boss is going to laugh or cry, but I will have to pay the fine and lose points from my licence. Serve me right. I have belted down that highway so many times, I deserve to have been caught before now. The joke is that until I hit my 50s, I was a conservative driver, who hated speeding, and looked down on those who did so. My, how we change! :) Particularly when we live miles from nowhere.

Ah - congratulations, Michael! And Christa! It's so nice to reach another mark, and you deserve it. You have some great photos in your gallery!

Congratulations Jon !

I am celebrating that a publisher of educational books about photography and computers has accepted my manus for a book about High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography. I will spend the coming time finishing the text and then it should get "out there".

The book will be in Danish - as the first Danish book about HDR.

You can see samples of my pictures and read reviews of old lenses in English at my homepage: www.hdrfoto.dk.

114. xymonau7 June 2011, 12:59 GMT +02:00

Wow - well done, John! If I could read Danish, I'd buy it. When you have a copy, post a photo of it for us to see?

115. weirdvis7 June 2011, 19:23 GMT +02:00

If anyone knows about HDR technique, it's you Jon. Kudos! :D

116. jazza7 June 2011, 22:47 GMT +02:00

Great news John, Congrats, for a long time I admire your photos. Why not try to publish your website in English.It looks stunning but I cant read it :(

117. johnnyberg8 June 2011, 1:48 GMT +02:00


114: I will not post a copy of the book, sorry - it is an E-book and it should bring in some money you see :-) But I will post a copy of the front page for you to see. hehe.

115: Ty - I try to keep the pictures natural and to avoid the the most comon pitholes with HDR.

116: Well, I have only started to translate my reviews of old lenses (M42, Tamron Adaptall and OM's); but maybe I will translate the guides once they have been updated to match the E-book. I am working on an English version of the site; but things take time . . . .

118. weirdvis8 June 2011, 8:18 GMT +02:00

I have a new toy to play with - Corel Painter 12. I'm lovin; it! :D

119. jonfletch9 June 2011, 0:33 GMT +02:00

And thanks for the kind words

120. crisderaud9 June 2011, 3:42 GMT +02:00

What you have done with HDR John is remarkable. Now you're putting your knowledge in a book. Congratulations on your achievements!

Lynne you have so many creations that are mega-hits. Now you have a new toy to boot! Going to be hard to top your swirly tree. :)

121. weirdvis9 June 2011, 9:54 GMT +02:00

I'm not the mega-hit queen, Cris. That title belongs to this lady:
