4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully shot and with charming scenes of domestic and Royal ..., 19 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Mr. Turner (Amazon Video)
A portrait of the man rather than a life story; be warned. Beautifully shot and with charming scenes of domestic and Royal Academy life, this films gives a fascinating insight into Turners life and also the earthy daily life of the period. Perhaps slightly overlong, and not at all gripping, it is nevertheless a excellent film, and quite different from Mike Leigh's other films.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent and fast scanner, 25 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent and fast scanner, and produces very good quality results. I am serious amateur photographer who shoots a lot of 35mm film, and this scanner does an excellent job of scanning slides and negative strip film. It also does a great job of scanning prints. If you are scanning lots of old holiday slides, and just want to get reasonable quality digital images quickly, then one of the cheaper slide scanners might be easier to use. This scanner will be aimed at serious amateurs and professionals, and hits that mark perfectly in my opinion.

The Epson software works well, and is straightforward to use. The Silverlight software, with its bizarrely old fashioned interface, works fine, and if you want everything run on 'automatic' probably does a better job than the Epson software. However, I have achieved good results, and an easier work flow, by scanning with the Epson driver and reworking TIFF files in Lightroom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Subtopia this is Not !, 17 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent biography and introduction to the writing of Nairn. The quoted snippets from some of his writing just makes you want to read more. An excellent antidote to the often sycophantic ramblings of contemporary architectural writing; he had the wit and balls to say what he thought. Next? Read Nairn's London.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Introduction to Church Architecture, 8 Nov. 2011
This is a good introduction to the subject, with a modern viewpoint. The chapters are well organised, with excellent examples, and the text flows well unlike much of the genre. The best starting point for understanding the history of parish churches and their architecture.

An excellent source book; all of those strange words and phrases explained. Organised by subject chapters it makes for a fascinating browse, as well as being a serious research tool. Also consider it a great christmas present - an ideal book to cure "cabin fever"!

2.0 out of 5 stars Owner of SME, 25 May 2009
Well, the basic message is fine, but the delivery puts a smoke screen over the whole thing. By the time you get through it you loose the plot somewhat. I suspect the book suffers too many cooks; everyone needing their say.

However, the basic message is worth saying.
