Very nice - crisp, clean and sharp.

PS - On the subject of photography courses, I just found (quite by accident) a website called "The self help photographer". It's run by an American by the name of Spyros Heniadis. I've watched some of the videos he's set up and learned such a lot about using my DSLR. It - and he - is brilliant. Follow the link and click on videos or playlists: https://www.youtube.com/user/selfhelpphotographer

Thanks for the link Tony. I initially thought that he was just selling a photography course, but I see he has free tutorials. Only watched his introductory presentation, but I think the tutorials look very helpful.

I know what you mean Dora, but whilst the home page prominently advertises how to order his tips on using a DSLR manually, and the accompanying video seems merely promotional, there is in fact a video on the site that runs through using a DSLR in manual mode. The "using a DSLR" playlist is a great intro series, and even though I thought I knew the basics, he does teach them very well. His "Americanness" can be a little jarring, but I can live with it. Enjoy
