Great colour and length, and stay 'done up' which many laces do not.

Excellent, prompt service from the seller and a very useful product. No more noise of dropped lens caps on church floors.. The sticky pads do not last for ever, but the whole thing is simple to use, are cheap to buy and easily replaced.

Oh dear! So long-drawn out that I almost gave up. Very little chemistry between Tom Huddleston and Rachel Weisz, murkily filmed and far too slow. I am old enough to remember the film with Vivien Leigh and Kenneth More, which was so much better. Perhaps it was more obviously adapted from the stage play, but Leigh's feverish intensity and More's puzzlement and ultimately his fear of all that this involved was much more convincing and much more moving.

How I wish that I had seen the exhibition! The beautifully produced catalogue is a huge consolation. I have studied it afresh every day since its arrival a few weeks ago, and it will be near at hand for the foreseeable future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Matisse: The Chapel at Vence, 14 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautifully produced book with good text, but there are rather too many hugely close-up views of details and photographs of the same or nearly the same aspect of the chapel. I am not thrilled by the book as I expected to be, but slightly disappointed. The large format makes it rather unwieldy to handle comfortably.

Feels a little flimsy, and was quite difficult to attach, due to inflexible stick loop, but does the job acceptably if not brilliantly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Elements 11 or the full works?, 4 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used CS3 on my old pc, not compatible, alas, with new set-up, Elements 11 feels more basic, but seems good enough for general photo enhancement. I still have to learn how to get the best out of the program. I might save up for CS6.

3.0 out of 5 stars Broken Concerto, 24 Aug. 2010
Alfred Brendel, with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields under Neville Marriner. Mozart: The Great Piano Concertos, Vol.1
This two CD set of Mozart concertos together with two concert rondos is a compilation by Philips Classical Productions of recordings dating from 1971 to 1978. The orchestral sound by the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields under Sir Neville Marriner seems a little tired. Brendel's playing is good, but I was disappointed by the lack of sparkle. Some of the pianissimos at ends of phrases are almost inaudible, but overall it has breadth, and understanding of Mozart's music as one would expect from this great pianist. The less than wonderful sound may of course be due to the age of the recordings and their transfer to CD.

However,the most disappointing aspect of this two-disc set now in Decca's DUO series is that the A major concerto, No 23, K488 has its first movement placed on Disc 1 and the final two movements on Disc 2. This is lazy and unacceptable practice nowadays. Had I known beforehand, I would never have bought this set. The second Concert Rondo, KV386, could surely have been omitted to allow the whole of K488 to be placed on one disc.
