What a result for a humble DX6490.

Congratulations, i've been an observer on these forums for a while and to see someone who takes top notch photos get recognised is great. :D

Congratulations, Paul, will check the Kodak website out :).

Is this an indoor or an outdoor shot?

Was taken at Dungeness in Kent back in the summer. (Under the shadow of the Nuclear power station.)


Was taken at R.A.F. Hendon, North London yesterday.

Paint Shop Pro 9.

I converted to b/w using the channel mixer and selected the sky and messed around with it for a bit of fun.
I didn't know it was going to spring up in here, but if you like that effect, it is quite easy to do.
