Day 215 - Maggie's 40th

All but one of Maggies 11 brothers and sisters, her ma and pa and a couple of the 30 odd nephews! I've still got to sort out the pic of just the brothers and sisters (sorry mags, I'll have to get you to OK which one I need to finish before I edit it this time :-) ).

 

Much photoshopping and many hours went in to get this comp of everyone looking at me and smiling. It's made from 5 different pics. There's still some anomolies that need sorting. I messed up and took them all on ISO 400 on the G9 which is a bit too noisy, but it was getting dark and I just had the one light through a brolly high up on the left so I was trying to bring the ambient up a little. Lesson learnt. Oh and I also learnt that when there's many people taking pictures or even if there's not then I should take charge and get everyone to look at me for at least 3-4 pictures in a row and put the bloomin camera on a tripod to make 'shopping afterwards easier. As long as I learn....
