Something totally different today, while passing through Glyn Neath in Wales I spotted the air ambulance landing, being an old press photographer I couldn't resist the opportunity.

The player had suspected spinal injuries as far as I could find out, hopefully they will turn out to be minor. Wayne

Some new stuff for us digital "togs" Photoshop CS4 is due out next week, lots of new goodies in there.

I'm a bit miffed to be honest, I just wrote a long update for this blog and it crashed and I lost all my work, I'm not going to re-post it all again, it took ages to type in (and I'm not that slow) Anyway on to the pics!

A couple of rather unusual wedding pics for you. Wayne

Hi and welcome to sunny September (well not very sunny where I am) anyway an update on whats been happening. My fridge freezer died a little while ago and I have had to buy a new one, I couldn't believe how much some cost!. There's fancy ones with two doors and a cold drinks dispenser, sadly out of my price range, so I ended up with a basic one (it keeps the food cold anyway) .
A few days after getting it I got a panicky phone call from my dear Mum, her fridge freezer has died now, so I now have her frozen food crammed into my new freezer lol. Trouble is some of it looks tempting Mmmmm!.
What else is happening, well I have switched to Adobe Lightroom 2.0 for my RAW conversion and basic editing, it has some new tools like a gradient tool, more handy than you might think, it's great for those odd occasions where the foregrounds burnt out or theres a bright wall on one side of a shot. They have upgraded the vignette tool so it now works AFTER you have cropped an image (thanks adobe) they also claim to have drastically improved the sharpening (which wasn't bad to start with) but to be honest I can't see much difference except for the improved interface box which now has a preview window on it.
On to the pics. heres a few recent wedding ones, enjoy. Wayne
