    Jeremy, You should put these images you are making onto the community page and make a page of your images.

    Thanks, Kevin. I’m just waiting until I have a reasonable collection to form a page.

    Thanks. There’s plenty of dark water below the bottom of this crop. I’ll have a look.

    Jeremy – that scene has the look and feel of Iceland.

    And it doesn’t mislead! I spotted it while driving from Reykjavik to Gullfoss, on the scenic back route you and Börkur recommended.

    Crazy cool shot. I saw something like this in Algonquin Park in Canada once. I’d crop the top area out of the picture, focus on the rays and golden color with the webs. You don’t need a bright area at the top. Maybe open the shadows a bit to give a hint to what is there.

    Agreed. The blown-out sun just draws the eye away from the rays below.

    Peter, thanks. It’s a two-shot pseudo HDR blend, one exposed for sky and one for land. As to white balance, I shot in raw with auto WB, then warmed it a touch in Lightroom, so that it looked as I liked it and, incidentally, pretty much as I remembered.

    I worked on it a little more. Better?

    Re: advice about Mojave upgrade

    Related question…If I purchase a new machine with Catalina in the near future, will I be able to use the installer to “downgrade” that machine to Mojave?

    Maybe.

    If you buy an old model, a machine which is now sold with Mojave installed, but which because Catalina has been released is sold with Catalina installed, such as a currently-available iMac, then probably, yes.

    If you buy a new model, such as the 16″ MBP or the new Mac Pro, probably not. Mojave won’t understand its hardware and probably won’t run.

    That’s how it has generally worked in the past, anyway. New models require the OS which is current when they are first sold. There are some clever hacks which have been used in the past to persuade them to run older OSs, but it’s not recommended and quite likely to be unstable. If you want to run an OS which is older than the Mac, virtualisation is your only real option.

    Eric, like Kevin I had almost no problems when I moved to Mojave. An auto-responder AppleScript that was triggered by a rule in Mail stopped working, but that was about it. You’ll get lots of tedious messages about 32-bit apps that won’t work in the future, but they only happen once per application.

    Kevin, the clock is indeed ticking. I gather the 16-inch MBP is expected at the end of next month. How do you like the A7Riv?

    Happily, Mark contributes here, and of course Kevin owns the site.

    I would doubt that the Mojave installer will remain readily available once Catalina is released, although cunning people always appear able to find old installers somehow. However, there’s no reason to upgrade to Mojave if you don’t want to: just download the installer now, from the App Store, and keep it ready for use in the future.

    The MS 2011 issue is one which concerns me. I’m used to that version of Word and some features, such as easy running of AppleScripts and a floating “formatting” toolbar, aren’t available in more recent versions. At present, I’m planning when I get a Mac which will only run Catalina (the anticipated 16″ MacBook Pro, for example) to buy Parallels and to run Office 2011 under Mojave in a virtual machine.

    I’m pretty sure it just means “physically” and someone accidentally typed “croc” into the middle of it.

    As one docroces.

    I wonder what “physcrocically” was actually supposed to be. Google says “did you mean psychotically?”, which while I’m sure is not what was meant does have a ring of relevance to it.
