I also love the dog shot, but the smiling Harley lady is nice as well. Being polite has its advantages

I love the threatening clouds and light in the sailing photo Brian. Is that the first time this photo sees the light of day or did you rework/repost it?

Thank you Pieter. This is the first time this particular frame has been posted but on that day I took a "lot" of shots, and I did use one for a photoshop project that you may have seen before, but not on this forum. This one:

Penny is my daughter-in-law and my son was coaching her on Rutland Water prior to the Laser Radial championships the following day and I took the photos from his RIB. The main problem I had with many of the photos was chopping the top of the sail off, but this one was at the end of the training session as the weather closed in. The weekend was a warm up race prior to the Olympics the following year in Beijing when she was the British Sailing Team Laser Radial sailor, and she did very well. She also raced in the London Olympics in 2012 after which she retired from the Royal Navy and is now a full time sailing coach with the Royal Yachting Association.

The uninhabited island photo is my kind of thing; the Pre-race practice day photo is striking, the bright sail and red lines on the dark sky is 3D, very well done.

And the photoshop is brilliant, I gotta steal that idea!

Many Thanks @4Paul, much undeserved praise . The sailing photo was taken with the Minolta 7D and you are right, it did produce that magical 3D appearance sometimes although the framed image needed a little trickery in PS

@bonneville- I am enjoying your efforts with the Sony 90/2.8 Macro. Hogwarts looks fascinating. Is that your Lego collection?

I note you also seem to be fond of holidaying in places that are warm...

@Wētāpunga - Thank you for your comments. Is it my lego collection? Me? 73 years old and into Harry Potter and Lego? Really? Absolutely

The Lego Hogwarts was a 2020 Christmas present (to myself) and I spent many happy hours in the conservatory building it.

Holidaying in warm places? I guess that is true although the vast majority of our travels were before I got seriously interested in photography and when I lived in Germany in the 1970s and 80s I was a keen caravaner and toured all over Europe, but have very few photographs of those times. I do have quite a few albums in the loft so I ought to pull them out and scan a few of the snaps. Regrettably few if any will be of any photographic merit I fear

@bonneville
Excellent, you're living proof Lego is for everyone
I have to confess most of my photos from my film days would have little photographic merit today...

Thanks for posting a link to the Lego site Brian, I would have never guessed your shot of Hogwarts castle was only such a small detail of the entire model

Thanks Pieter, it is huge. One side shows the "outside" appearance:


and the reverse side shows sections of individual areas with relevant links to the various books/movies:


I took a few shots of it just after completion, and before I planned to break it all down again into its individual 6020 pieces . However, it is still complete and sitting in two sections on the window sill in my study    .
