    I was inspired to go back through my boxes of old mountain photography slides to see if I could find any lost gems.

    I came across a single roll of Agfa Scala that has never seen the light of day in 10 years. It was exposed on a single day on the Snowdon Horseshoe. Hidden away on the roll were 4 frames that I've reprocessed. They are dark and grainy but are certainly a bit diferent to my norm.

    Both of them capture that B&W “essence” and “characteristics” which is hard to fully recreate in the digital age!

    Looking at your old material is wonderful, not only just the old negs/slides but also with your digital captures. I have found that as my knowledge and skills has improved over time, going back and reworking images has significantly improved the quality of my results. It gives you something to do when it is raining and on those dark evenings!!!

    OK, that's the 2nd time that's happened and I'll not be back.

    I can accept the file dimensions thing, fair enough.

    But I'm not allowed to link to my amateur personal gallery from which I sell the odd print? Yet our admins can link to their websites which advertise B&Q and Homebase?

    Share and share alike guys. We photographers are giving you some quality photography and discussion that helps your site generate advertising revenue yet you offer us nothing in return.

    Get a grip guys.

    I think you've just fallen foul of the reciprocal linking requirement. Just stick a link to AP somewhere on your site and you should be okay.

    LOL NN,

    As an amateur, my rules would forbid me to link to commercial sites.

    Exactly the reason NN.

    There does seem to be double standards at work here.

    What are you suggesting/hinting at Norman?
  9. Barney

    But not to sell prints? :D It's not a big thing. I choose not to include my website in a sig as I don't want to link to AP. If you don't want to link to Ap then just do the same as me.

    Judging by your shots you'd be a welcome addition to the forum community so it would be a shame to give up so soon.

    I'm suggesting that an ordinary member can have his signature URL removed because he's in breach of a rule (no reciprocal link) but a moderator doesn't have his commercial site link removed.

    Fen, fair enough. I'll post up a link back to the AP subscription cancellation webpage which I'm just on my way to right now. :eek:

    I'm not in the habit of linking to commercial websites. I'm an amateur after all. Perhaps I'll move on to dpreview forums. They seem to have fewer commercial motives over there. ;)

    It's just a reciprocal link (A link on here to your website, a link on your website to this one. The word "Commercial" is completely irrelevant. What's the big deal??? :D

    What a storm in a tea-cup! All we are asking for is a courtesy link back to AP if you wish to promote your own web site through AP's facilities here. It's a reciprocal arrangement, simple as that.

    And yes, try DPReview if you like. They've got plenty of advertising and almost no moderation meaning that people there can be quite scathing, rude and unfriendly and if you do step out of line in some way, expect the angry mob to descend.

    Nose. Off. Cut. Spite. Face.

    I know I can be a beligerent sod at times but even I can see that the requirement to have a return link on any site posted in a sig is nothing but fair.

    Okay, shut the door on your way out will you? :rolleyes:

    I registered on a couple of other forums before I saw the light! :D

    There were never more than half a dozen users online at any time and life was painfully dull. Give me the insanity of AP any day!

    No issue, I was asked a question. If the question was one that shouldn't be answered on-line then it should have been asked off-line.
