The Big Sick

A romcom is not usually my thing, conjuring up images of trailers for an endless number of Jennifer Aniston films on tv. However, on an overcast day and with no sign of the promised sunshine, The Big Sick has been well reviewed and was showing at my almost-local cinema.

A film about relationships and cultural differences, it’s a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. A fair amount of humour, a couple of paper-hankie moments, and a likeable and well acted cast of characters, make for a pretty decent movie.

Bosham – the tide was out

Bosham is a lovely village near Chichester. On a previous visit the tide was in, but today it was out. I think I prefer it when the tide is in. [Helpful public transport tip! Bus route 56, every 90 minutes or so from Chichester, takes you right down to Bosham harbour, whereas bus 700, every 20 minutes or so from Chichester, leaves you a mile from the harbour.]

For a second day I decided to take JPG images, intending to use the pictures straight from the camera Рie with no photoshopping. This also means I could use the panorama feature of my camera, whereby I can scan a wide scene and the camera will automatically take and stitch together multiple images into a panorama.

Sadly, I am not happy with the images straight from the camera and I have resorted to photoshopping to beef up the pictures. I’m not totally happy with the results – some pictures have come out better than others. I think in future I might take both JPG+RAW images so that if a JPG image is inadequate I can use the RAW file to do the photoshopping – this is the preferred way. Sadly this does rule out using the panorama feature, which only works when taking just JPG images.
