Its amazing how similar this poppy image is to the one I took the other day. I suppose its not really that surprising though – it is poppy season!
I am loooking forward to a break next week – exploring, swimming, walking, reading and hopefully experimenting with a bit of photography.The view should be something like this…..

I spent yesterday at the Adobe Live Conference at Olympia. It was a really worthwhile day showcasing the (newish) Abobe CS suite. I attended seminars on digital video, print and web publishing and proffessional digital photography. The integratation between applications (which were once designed and used in isolation) is really developing in leaps and bounds, and Photoshop just gets better all the time.
Demonstrations showed how Premiere Pro, After Effects, Encore DVD and Abobe Audition (sound editing) create a seamless and intuitve work flow, with tonnes of pre-set features for editing.
Its always good to pick up tips on current software and to see the new upgrades showcased by the leading lights of the design and animation industry. I was able to learn more about the RAW file formats for digital SLR photography, and amazed to learn just how much control Photoshop CS offers to the RAW digital format.
There was even time for a spot of shopping in Oxford St at the end of the day!
