    Lightroom 2 - Are the american & british product different?

    Hey Guys, Was just thinking of buying lightroom 2, its £205 in the UK or $299 in the US. Based on the current conversion rate the US price works out at £160. Does anyone know of any differences between to two versions? If not I'll get the US version and save myself £45. Cheers, Steve.

    Pontardawe Music Festival - The Kilas

    Hi Sw1tchFX, Yes I totally agree that sharpness is an issue on these, Ihave made no attempt to sharpen them up yet, they were taken in raw and converted straight to tiff. What colour issues are you talking about? There was no flash with these so the lighting is as it was at the show...

    image enlargement

    Hi Guys, I'm trying to work out how I can make large prints to go on my living room wall. If I have an image printed out on 8x10, but then want to convert that into a larger high quality image is it a simple matter of using a decent scanner to scan it in and enlarge it? For example, the...

    Using other artists ideas

    Yeah I agree that most areas have probably been covered by some artistat some time. Does anyone know if the style in question has been covered by other artists or if it is only this guy. Do you think that if any of my own work was shown that I should give credit to the artist as a source of...

    cereal field

    Lovely shot, lovely colours, I can imagine standing there gazing across the fields. I do find the weird cloud shape coming from the top left corner a bit distracting though, a strange visual effect makes it appear closer than the other clouds. Steve.

    Mother Nature

    This shot was actually taken from my hallway window, one of those "OMG Wheres my camera!" moments :) I have to admit to a teeny bit of a contrast bump and a slight drop in brightness just to increase the richness of it. Cheers Guys :D
