Yeah, spring is coming slowly. Just need these strong cold winds to stop.

These pigeons seemed to be enjoying the sunshine this morning. Interesting group behavior. Seen individual birds sun bathing to help get rid of parasites. This must be a favorite spot, so many pigeons gather.

The Spinnaker Tower (Portsmouth) looked nice today in the sunshine. Had a few people working on the outside lift mechanism. Looked a bit hairy. Rather them then me.

Oh. Makes sense. Would make it look better without that useless track on it.

RawTherapeehttp://rawtherapee.com/

Discovered this free and open source alternative to Lightroom to and gave it a quick try out.

Seems to have all the processing power of Lightroom, plus a bit more (e.g. can specify from a selection of 10 demosaicing algorithms), but lacks the photo management features of Lightroom.

Here's an example output from my Panasonic FZ-50 camera, processed from it's RAW file output. Not too bad. (Looks better locally than here on Google+. Google must be reprocessing the image.)

If you're used to processing your images in Lightroom, then you will get on well with RawTherapee. I'll certainly be giving it some more photos to process. And if you're a Linux user, it's a must have. Best Linux Lightroom alternative I've come across.

#Windows  A few of my thoughts on the new name for the next version of Windows.
Windows 7 8 9 = 10. So the next version of Windows will be called Windows 10, an increment of 2 over the current version. But hey, we have had worse. There was an increment of 3 between Windows 95 and 98. On that basis, maybe Microsoft should have named it Windows 11, throwing in a “This Is ...

I know it's old and probably needs explaining to children and oversea visitors, but I was a little bit surprised to see a plaque was required for a red phone box.

Lovely fish skin affect design on this boat. Looking at the edges, it seems to be a stick on. I wonder how robust it will be?
