A week or so back I thought it was high time I applied myself to making use of Publisher. Here's a spoof magazine cover (you'll have to wait a l-o-n-g time for the articles!). I left it a while before I went back to see if it was good to go, or needed any changes. I decided to add the apps' logos -- which I had to make myself in AD; they're vectors, so I can rescale them for future use. Anyway, see what you make of this. Any helpful criticism is welcome!
I had the privilege of being given a ride on the Yarmouth Lifeboat last week, and took my camera -- naturally! These photos are small ones I posted on Facebook; if/when I come to print them, I'll re-edit them at full size (and maybe develop them a little differently). The Needles chalk stacks, and the lighthouse: Scratchell's Bay and the cliffs Cormorants. They very considerately arranged themselves according to the Rule of Odds: a group of three and a group of one. (I wonder what he did to upset the others?)
Living on the Isle of Wight, it's very nice to drop into a Stately Home or other historical site on the way home from the shops. Osborne was Queen Victoria's holiday home, with its own beach. I didn't bother taking my camera because I have so many photos from previous visits; I did have my phone though, and took one or two snaps (well, 149 all together!) I had AP's HDR and panorama in mind ... I've mostly used the presets on the HDRs, but this first one is a little over-sharpened, and there's a lot of grain in the sky; I'll smooth that out in future editing. The panorama gives a view of the city of Portsmouth across The Solent. the "sunset" (we're looking north-east) is probably pollution haze that's been exaggerated by cranking up the saturation!
