To all members
A little while ago, we started allowing the uploading of photos directly to the forum as opposed to requiring members to hotlink them from an external website.
This is not exclusive to OS, however it is a major shift in how we operate and in our view, a great step forward that is of benefit to both our members and the forum itself.
We have now had the opportunity to gather some valuable feedback, and although we can’t change the physical functionality behind the attachement mechanism, we have addresses another concern - the size limit of each upload.
This has now been increased to 4MB, which we hope will be enough for our members. If it still presents a problem please let a member of the team know.
When I got my fisheye, and as I am from Norfolk one of the first photos I took with it was a tractor! I was quite pleased with the results so I thought I would have a wander about this site. All are processed from 3 handheld bracketed images. I know a bit lazy. Sorry there seems to be a bit of a formula to the images but I hope you enjoy.
St Maryâ€™s in Clapham is one of the major Catholic Victorian churches of South London. It was opened to serve the growing numbers of Catholics living around Clapham Common in the middle of the 19th Century who came to work on the new roads and railways, as well as meet the demand by the rising middle classes to enlarge their domestic staffs. The church was designed in a Gothic style by William Wardell and has later additions by J E Bentley, architect of Westminster Cathedral. The foundation stone was laid on 2 August 1849 and the church was opened by Cardinal Wiseman on 14 May 1851. The spire is currently being restored by a Heritage Lottery funded project.
I love climbing stuff close to where I live, I love that satisfaction of looking up at something knowing you've been on the top! I've been passing this on the bus for months and kept forgetting about it, hardly an epic but I think it's probably the highest structure in Clapham. It's certainly a local landmark around here as there are literally no other high structures around. I was surprised how long it took to get to the top, it's actually 170ft even though it doesn't look it. I popped up on the way home from a night out and enjoyed a bottle of cider up top, as you do like
Thanks for looking
