There will be two panels, one colour and one B&W, with 10 photos in each panel. If you haven't already, please look through your photos and submit the best of them, and let’s see if we can put two good panels together.

HDR and Bracketing in Lightroom by Barry:
This Thursday Barry will go through the Bracketing and HDR (High Dynamic Range) method he uses in Lightroom. For those who are unfamiliar with the terms, Bracketing is often (but not solely) used to get the highlights, midtones and shadows properly exposed in a scene where ordinarily the camera will over expose the highlights and or under expose the darker areas. In order to achieve this, Bracketing uses three or more photos taken at different exposures which are then blended together in post production to achieve a HDR image.
