So I thought you might have had enough of the whole hand tool thing.
So I thought something different might be in order, although I guess this is a tool of sorts too. It's an old fisherman's tractor and as I think I've said before (often repeat myself these days) it's amazing that some of these rusty old relics continue to work. Long may they continue, I love 'em.
On another note I stumbled across a photographic competition for Hertfordshire today, running in order to raise funds for a charity. Might be fun I thought even if I've no chance of winning. I read the rules "manipulated images" are not allowed only minor edits IE resize. So if I go out, shoot a landscape with a ND grad filter that's pure photography and ok, if I don't use the filter and make a dual raw conversion or simply make a selection and adjust the sky (for instance) that's manipulated and not allowed? I wonder how they draw the line, how will they tell what has and hasn't been manipulated? This pure versus digitally enhanced argument will go on for a very long time I feel but it seems to me a little more leeway is needed these days.
