    Prunes were our main dessert as a child, and I still love them! and figs fresh from the tree are the best.
    Pile driving at sea? Doesn't the boat move?

    That close in I doubt they’d need a boat but a basic pile driver just uses gravity. It lifts a weight and drops it. As long as the support platform doesn’t move it matters not if it is fixed or floating.

    Edit: for a pier I expect they just work outwards.

    The platform is anchored.

    I was in a rush when I last replied. Most offshore piling is done via a jackup barge; a barge with piles at the corners that are dropped to the sea bed then jacked to raise the barge above the surface to provide a working platform.

    When you say it, it seems so obvious, but I had never worked that out. Thanks :)

    One I took in Berlin a few years ago. Had already converted it to B&W and posted on this forum a couple of years ago. Just redone it slightly now.

    I'm giving up trying to find a colour file that meaningfully converts. I'm hoping that the new negative/photo scanner I've just ordered can do stuff with genuine B&W material.

    In particular I am hoping that I can find the negative for this - a straight scan on a document scanner of something I printed decades ago - and get some detail from it. There was a sharp bend into a ford about 200 m ahead of this madman doing 64 mph with the bonnet up. it is pouring with rain and that is an unsurfaced road.

    If it was 1.6mb it still would not load. Get it to no more than 500kb to load to a thread.

    Resize to 800 pixels on long side as per forum guidance, that’ll be about 300 kb , then it will load

    You should post it appraisal if you want critique

    As Alf says, the convention is that posts in Exhibition should not be critiqued. I think by asking the question you’ve already identified the answer! Now you have figured out how to resize to 800 px and upload, the palaver should be gone!

    Just felt I needed to comment, sorry.

    No need to apologise. The “ban” on critique is to prevent upset as folk can get really upset if they put up a picture and it gets criticised. If you put this in appraisals it would get comments on the framing, the exposure, the focus.
