    What is The Trocadero, after all? I haven't got a clue. I only know the name.

    ..playing in photoshop today !!

    Using LaFoto's beautiful picture posted earlier of the refelections in the rain in Picadilly... which was SO much more artistic than my shot ...

    LaFoto's :
    [​IMG] love it...

    And my own not so artistic shot of the lights :

    [​IMG] which is ok but not exactly thrilling...

    Through the power of teamwork .. and the magic of photoshop ...
    you get this ...

    [​IMG]

    Thanks to LaFoto for letting me play with her pics...

    Hope you Like !

    Cool work there, Jerry. Wow.
    The turn-around pic of the person making a drawing of that model there is ... heeehee, the whole thing turned around. I like that idea so much.

    And hey, now my reflection finally looks complete :D.
    Though - if you wanted to be totally nitpicky - you could always say that the reflection shows that the lights were not white at the very bottom when I took the reflection shot but are white in your upper version. But who would want to be THAT nitpicky, right? No one. It would not even occur to anybody. Would it? So there.... what have I said again?

    :lol:
    I like!!!!

    You are not all SERIOUSLY into the :( mood now, are you? I do like the fact that you put one of mine and one of your photos together! Honestly.

    I might post some more for you all to criticise ...

    Although these fish-eye pics were taken just for fun and to have one last play with Andy's fisheye lens:

    Nothing would suggest this was a photographer's meet-up, would it??? No-ho-hooooooooooooooo! How ever would we guess!

    Ah, but here is a detail of that very Andy-the-fisheye-lens-owner-and-totally-lost-prophet's summer home:

    [​IMG]

    And another detail:
    [​IMG]

    And its reflection:
    [​IMG]

    Not bad, eh?
    Hard to heat in the wintertime, I guess, but whoever owns this as their summer home won't go there in winter, would they? ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

    Teehee, I'm just seeing that Duncan made my pic into his avatar, the fisheye pic of him trying out the 100-400mm lens for the first time. :lol: Cool avatar! :lol:

    Day 1


    Shortly after I joined the rest of the gang in the late afternoon, we all headed off to Soho Square to take the traditional TPF Salute picture. Lafoto was in charge.

    [​IMG]


    After dinner in Chinatown, the diehards made their way to Picadilly Circus to take some nighttime shots.

    [​IMG]

    Finally, I was the only one left standing (probably because I’d started my picture taking so much later than the others). So I made my way down to Trafalgar Square and the embankment to continue taking some shots.

    [​IMG]

    Day 2


    The majority of the group (eventually) met up at Euston before heading over to Canary Wharf. The swapping of the cameras and lenses began!

    [​IMG]
    ^^^ Duncan and Corinna


    [​IMG]


    Soon it was time for another group shot….


    [​IMG]
    Back Row: Notegraphics/Jerry, Rob, PlasticSpanner/Chris, Simon, Scurra/Ben, Antarctican/Jeanne, Lostprophet/Andy
    Front Row: Lafoto/Corinna, Duncanp/Duncan, L’il Loui/Louise, Hertz van Rental/Graham


    …after which the cameras were checked in case any had sustained damage by having been subjected to such torture.

    [​IMG]
    ^^^ Ben & Louise


    Then it was time for a two mile forced hike to The Gun pub, just to test Jerry’s resolve. Along the way there were plenty of photo ops.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    At long last we reach the pub, only to be told the chef hadn’t shown up, so there was just minimal food service (bread, olives, fish pate, sausage, and chips/fries). Everyone kept their sense of humour about it though, and just kept snapping pictures.

    To be continued…..
