Just over a year ago I joined the Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society. I entered six, the maximum number, of my photos into the annual competition. I was not surprised to be told that I didn't win any of the prizes, but I am very pleased that one of my photos,Storm Waves At Horseshoe Bay, came third in one category and another, Crossing The Mara River, was Highly Commended in another category.

Just having a discussion with a friend on movies that are underrated and I was curious to see what you all would say on here.
What is a movie that you feel is the most underrated movie out there? Key is in the title it can't be a movie that is seen as a great movie..
One from the top of my head would be a film called Enemy. Has quite a low rating on IMDB for how clever it is. It is a film by Denis Villeneuve starring Jake Gyllenhaal and without saying too much in fear of giving anything away it is a very, very clever movie with great performance(s) from Jake.... etc.. Exceptional director.
I guess the bad rating is from people who may not of understood the meaning of the film, which is easy to do as it is quite complex.
Another one would be Man Down starring Shia LaBeouf, I thouroughly enjoyed it and thought it was a good movie but has an extremely low rating. I am not sure whether this is just people who do not like Shia and just bash his movie regardless, but I thought his...
I finally decided a couple of weeks back it was about time I started making more effort to do some landscape photography, and to use my 10stop to do some long exposure stuff. So the plan was to head to the east coast. Shingle street and Dovercourt were on my list for the day. It all started poorly as I overslept by a couple of hours. When I finally got to shingle street the tide was getting too low for what I wanted. So off to dovercourt, in the rain and now approaching 11am things were not looking good.
I setup on the beach after waiting for the rain to pass. It was really cold at times and warm at others so I was taking layers on and off. The next rain shower I decided to go back to the car for some lunch only to look back and see my jacket floating in the sea.
I also learnt that this long exposure stuff really is not as easy as it looks. I made so many mistakes and spent hours trying to get just a couple of shots. Twice I made the mistake of checking my exposure in M mode then...

Over the past month I've been converting a room in our house into a movie room. I got the screen from PSM and including wood, velvet tape surround it cost under £200 to put together (just the screen not the room) for 110 inch diagonal. To say it makes the Epson 9300 shine is an understatement. I've set it up as a 2.39:1 ratio and use lens memory on the projector to change for 16:9 viewing.
I lined the ceiling with black felt and used matt black paint on the walls. Still a few things to tidy up like the doors, radiator etc.
Microsoft & Samsung Partnership is mentioned as well, 'auto game mode' coming later this year on the 2018 Samsung lineup:
Xbox One X and Xbox One S will soon support AMD FreeSync displays
Can threads be blocked from my side so they don’t update or show never felt the need before but these keep popping everywhere and looks like even more on the way.
So, in town today and took a look inside my local Cash Convertor (oh no you say!).
Came out with...
Baby Driver £9.99 (UHD, 1080p, Digital)
Alien Covenant £9.99 (UHD, 1080p, Digital)
Magnificent Seven £5 (UHD, 1080p)
Hacksaw Ridge £9.99 (UHD, 1080p, Digital)
Hitman Bodyguard £9.99 (UHD, 1080p, digital)
Bar Mag 7, all had sleeves too, and codes that I have redeemed (what a palava that is btw).
So seems like prices are dropping for used discs. CEX had all these for quite a lot more, and they are selling in ebay for more used as well, so if you happen to pass on, it may be worth checking them out.
They also had 4 brand new copies of IT for £18, at least they were sealed so I assume new, Spiderman Homecoming for £14 and others, but have both so passed on them.
I've worked for Cash Gen in the past and we tended to make prices uniform across stores so if the same applies at Cash Convertor, then you could find a few bargains.
Hope this is allowed btw mod, apologies if not, thought...
