    I really don' t have to think about it. Considering it came from you.
    Any category that Ms Helen or Annika1980 is in I would be considered
    in good company.

    Not all that gullible that I can't let it roll of my back like water.
    As to what you know or don't know Tony I wouldn't pretend to know or
    don't know nor take for granted.

  11. you don't know the half of it, I put down a wheat beer with a friend a
    couple of months ago, and we had a taste the other day, 30 bottles were gone
    in a weekend, we had a bit of help from some friends as we just had to share
    it, it really was that good, and best part, it cost about $20 and some time
    :)
    Seriously, I would recommend home brewing to anyone, the modern kits you can
    buy at places like Big W will produce a good beer every time, as long as you
    keep everything operating room clean (and there are sterilizing agents
    available that don't even need drying before you use the gear) and can
    follow simple instructions :) and after a while, you can start to
    experiment a bit, we put some orange zest and coriander seeds in this wheat
    beer and the results were spectacular.

    yeah, I know: a bloke just down the
    road does his own beer as well. Best
    brew in a long time. I can't drink most
    commercial beers: allergic to whatever
    preservative shit they use.
    But home brew stuff, no probs. Will have
    to look into it.
    Right now I can't drink ANY: diet...

  13. you know diet is just the word "Die" with a "T" tacked on the end !!
    and If I'm going to die, I'm going out fighting and enjoying myself ;-)

    Biggest problem for me is really the preservative
    crap they stick into commercial beers here:
    instant allergic reaction!
    Last time had to get an anti-histamine shot:
    eyes puffed up straight away, couldn't see...

  15. no preservative in home brew, and even xxxx gold is going preservative free,
    and soon beer will even be able to help fight the barstard cancer :)

    : Let me make one point clear about my position on Photoshopped images:
    : it's a very legitimate form of the photographer's art. That's what we
    : try to create...art. We try to create interesting and pleasing images
    : that capture the attention of the viewer. Sometimes that comes right
    : out of the camera, and sometimes that comes from manipulation of the
    : image.
    :
    : My only objection to Photoshopped (or images manipulated by any
    : program) is when an altered or manipulated image is presented as a
    : "straight" image and a denial of manipulation is stated.
    :
    : Even this is a gray area. Sharpening, boosting detail or colors with
    : Channels or Curves, cloning out imperfections, and the use of the some
    : of the other tools in Photoshop is manipulation. Changing exposure of
    : a RAW image is manipulation.

    Would you call exposure bracketing manipulation? What's the practical
    difference between choosing the best of a series of bracketed exposures and
    adjusting the exposure value with a photo editor? Some camera/speedlight
    combinations are designed with a deliberate propensity to underexpose in order
    to avoid blown highlights; the photographer is expected to make the necessary
    corrections in the resulting image. Yes, you can use flash exposure
    compensation to defeat that propensity, but isn't that manipulation too, since
    the effect is pretty much the same?

    White balance is a similar case. If you use auto white balance, you're letting
    the camera make an educated guess with the full understanding that you're
    going to have to override its judgement a certain percentage of the time.
    (Indeed, many cameras don't even apply the white balance correction; they
    simply package the information as an adjunct to the RAW image and let the
    photo editor or RAW converter apply it.) If you eschew auto white balance and
    any after-the-fact correction, you'd better have your color temperature meter
    and correcting filters handy at all times. But what purpose is served by
    substituting yesterday's tools for a capability that's built into any modern
    camera?

    : And, in my opinion, legitimate manipulation that need not be disclosed.

    I don't think that goes far enough. To me, using the options offered by modern
    cameras and photo editors to get the exposure and color balance right is not
    manipulation, period.

    I think that in many cases even color intensity should fall under the same
    umbrella. The human eye/brain system responds differently from a photovoltaic
    sensor, and color intensity correction may be necessary to bridge the gap
    between what the camera saw and what (in human terms) it thought it saw.

    : When two or more photos are combined into one, though, it becomes Photoshopped
    : art and not a "straight" photograph.

    Sure, but that's obviously a qualitatively different issue.

    The reason all this hair splitting matters, of course, is that we all remember
    the recent case of a news photographer who was fired on the spot for removing
    a distracting detail that was utterly irrelevant to the substance of the
    picture, just because the removal violated the newspaper's strict definition
    of manipulation and stringent policy against its use. I take no position on
    whether the newspaper's action was justified or its definition of manipulation
    was correct. (The photographer presumably knew what the policy was, even if
    his violation of it was inadvertent.) But the case shows that what does and
    doesn't fall within the definition should be carefully thought out.

    No. I was referring to manipulation in post-processing. Exposure
    bracketing is done in-camera before the image is taken.
    I didn't say or imply that there is a difference. I was discussing
    post-processing only, and specifically in editing programs like
    Photoshop.

    I'm snipping the rest of your comments, but not because they are not
    valid observations. I'm snipping because they don't address
    manipulation in post-processing. It is not manipulation when you set
    options in advance of taking the actual photograph.

    I guess I didn't make my point clear, since you seem to have missed it
    entirely. My assertion is that if setting the exposure value or white balance
    in advance is not manipulation, then correcting it afterwards using a photo
    editor isn't either. Conceptually, this is true in all cases (or so I would
    claim). But with RAW files, at least on some cameras, it's literally the case,
    since the in-camera correction is not applied to the image until
    post-processing. On the face of it, my position appears to contradict yours
    (not sidestep it, as you seem to imply), especially in view of the
    clarification you offer above.

    What about cropping? Is that manipulation? If your answer is yes, then what
    about using a telephoto lens? I assume that by your definition, that would not
    be manipulation. But suppose I would use a telephoto lens but don't have one.
    If I take the picture with a normal lens and crop it to the size it would have
    been if a telephoto were used, is that manipulation?

    The common theme here is that with today's equipment and the multitude of
    options that it offers, simplistic definitions of what constitutes
    manipulation are inadequate and sometimes counterproductive.
