Great tyro 2020-04-04 14:23

Hello Mariusz,

What an interesting note! I had not known that people from Middlesbrough were known as "Smoggies". How interesting. But Middlesbrough itself isn't known as "Smog"? Because Edinburgh is sometimes referred to as "Auld Reekie" (which, I guess also means "smoggy" or "smokey") but I don't think Edinburgh people are called "Reekies". All very odd!

Anyway, this is actually a very nice photograph which you have taken from your own home, showing the skyline view and also some evidence of smog or smoke in the sky - but the little clusters of light shining through the blue haze are rather attractive.

A very well captured shot with perfect exposure and, as always, exquisite details and sharpness.


You take care in these troubled times.

Kind Regards,


P.S. What is the "back end" of a 70 - 300mm zoom? Is it 70 or 300mm?

Default To tyro: back end

Hi John,
nice to hear from you!
I have heard this expression in reviews of lenses sometimes but I agree it is misleading.
I meant 300mm end which in this case is actually 1.6x 300 = 480 mm.
Keep safe!!
