Thanks Phil,

I wasn't too happy with it but it is nice to know that you find it acceptable, I am really fed up with the weather recently on the river, there is aways that murkyness in the distance which seems to affect the quality. It is more like November than August !!.
Hope for some brighter weather soon.
If you contact me by Email I can tell you what I use if it would be of any help to you.

Regards Ken

Nice, well exposed photo Ken, despite the weather. I wish I could get my grey, misty old photos from the 80s to look this good !
