2014 got off to a very slow start photo wise, but Betty & I went away for a weeks holiday at Noosa & Brisbane. You can see the photos here.

Friends from church, Stan & Joy married on the 3rd of May, 2014. Here are the photos.

Renee & I went up to Grafton for a friend of Renee's 21st. On the way home we caught with our new grand niece & Renee's 2nd cousin, Charlotte Baxter. Here are the pictures.

19 September 2014. We had the very great pleasure of attending & participating as the official celebrant in the wedding of our niece Eleanor to Russell Dady. The photos are here! Eleanor & Russell met through their mutual participation in forums regarding the book series, "The Wheel of Time". You can find out more about this book series here.

To get the best from the photos ...

Please make sure that  your screen is calibrated so that you can see all the shades in the image below;

Screen calibration image

You must be able to see all this:
-- 20 sections of equal width and different tone
-- the darkest section must be pure black
-- the lightest section must be pure white
-- there must be no hint of color anywhere along the grey spectrum
If you don't see 20 different tones, you may need to lower the contrast.
If black is not pure black, you need to either darken the monitor or adjust the black point.
If white is not pure white, you need to either lighten the monitor or adjust the white point.
If both black and white are not pure, try to boost the overall contrast or adjust both, the black and white points.
If there is a color cast, try and adjust the color balance. Some software allows you to do this separately for both ends of the grey spectrum
