Thank you guv. :D

I'm afraid the image quality on some are not as good as I would have liked since I couldn't use a flash at many of the events or lectures and the pics are grainy as a result. I might take a tripod to the next one and set up at the back of the auditoriums to enable slower, low light photography.

Great pics Penners and Tony I agree there is nothing worse than unidentified photos en masse. The first thing I do is go through and work out where, who and when for my pictures then go from there. If I cannot work out what the photo is about then why would anybody else care. :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Seriously, I was looking at some on the CA board and one person posted thousands! None of them were labelled and lots were badly taken and very similar. I got fed up of looking at them halfway through thhe "Friday" pictures.

Your's on the other hand are interesting, labelled, well composed and there are not so many that you think a slideshow is never going to end. :lol:

Well done sir! :clap:


What he said! :mrgreen:

Digital photography is a blessing and a curse - I usually don't even bother looking at people's convention/party/event pictures (or I give up after the first 50) because I don't want to waste my time looking at 10 almost identical blurry pictures of people I don't know or care about.

Wahayyyy! I've now got the third day's photos sorted. These cover The Watch Interview and Jan's presentation to Sir Terry as well as the pre dinner drinks and the Gala Banquet.

I couldn't resist playing with a few ;) and I thought I would add a few monochrome images of some of the portraits at the end (the normal colour shots are in the set as well, sorry for the repetition). :D
