my university goes by semesters, but during January, you take one month-long class (J-term). they offer a ton of j-term classes around the world, in fact in 2006 we were the first university in the world to have students studying on all 7 continents (including Antarctica).

this last January, I took a class titled England & The Second World War. We studied mostly in London, but we also took some side trips to Cambridge, Coventry, Oxford (Duxford on the way), and over to Caen, France, to see the Normandy landing beaches.

My research was on the Spitfire, so I was really excited about Duxford. Amazing place!

hi all,
my first attempt at using HDR. I,ve downloaded the free trial hence the water mark.
It seems quite easy to use but I didn't realise it produced such a huge file.
The three pictures I used were fairly close on exposure but HDR improved, I think, the final image.
Original pics: f18 9secs (-0.7EV) f18 5secs (-1.3EV) f18 6secs (-1.0EV)
regards John :)

I replaced an 18-70 with the 18-135 (bought cheap on eBay!), and it is far better for me, with good corners and minimal vignetting.

Resolution falls off at 135mm, as is frequently noted, but not often realised is that it is great to 105mm, and falls sharply at the far end of the zoom range. As such, it's a first class 18-105mm lens for the price, with the extra reach if really needed.

Macro-wise, I have compared it to my 55mm Micro-Nikkor using a small extension tube on the zoom, and central resolution is comparable, with okay periphery. Buy a cheap extension tube and enjoy quality genuine macro with the 18-135 in the 50-105mm range.

Cheers,
Wayne Lawler
