Oh! I forgot about that. "Alexa, play WQXR."

Great sound. I will add that to my list... as well as KUSC.

I don't know what I would do without Internet radio. I have a tabletop Sangean wfr-1 radio (now discontinued - in my office and use the Yamaha DVR in the Home Entertainment System. My favorites are (New Orleans) and (Denver) but have been known to listen to many others.

I can also recommend Applian's Replay Radio program ( -- it is $2.95 a month subscription or comes as part of the Replay Capture Suite ( for a one-time $79. Don't rule out the Suite, however, until you look at all it can do.

Anyway, I use "Replay Radio" to automatically record, for instance, three programs on Sunday morning from WWOZ -- "Hazel and the Delta Ramblers" (very old-time Bluegrass), Cajun and Zydeco w/Charles Laborde or Jim Hobbs," and "Acoustic Blues w/Cousin Dimitri." That way I can listen in my own time and place.

I received my 18-400 Tamron (Canon mount -- finally) yesterday and was only able to take four shots (7D Mk II) and was not all that impressed either. After thinking about it all night, I remembered this DPReview article: Going to the Tamron TAP-in page (, I find that the 18-400 is a compatible lens... so that may be something I will look into after some other trouble shooting.

This may end up in the Attic because it may be perceived to be sexist. In no way was it intended to be so and my wife ok’d the post.

Just out of curiosity: Does anyone like "Slide Show" type of articles? I got to slide three (which is more than usual for me) before my patience ran out and I simply gave up.

Or if so, what is the purpose behind them as opposed to the "normal" way of presenting?

Is this better?

Yes... however, I really had no complaint with the original image. I merely posted the above link as one way to process the image. FWIW, I did struggle with whether to post that or not.

This resembles the HDR image found in this Facebook post. His workflow would seem to be just what this image needs.

(I hope this link works.)

If you use Lightroom there are the built-in Galleries. And, also, a number of Third Parties have excellent Plug-ins. There are several of them but "The Turning Gate" ( comes to mind. The Lightroom Queen has a list on her website at

I’ve asked this question before and still don’t have an answer. What does GAS stand for? Is there a page anywhere in here that would list these frequently used acronyms?

This may help:

Yeah B&H showed they had them yesterday when I checked but I see they are out now. I would have ordered from B&H however I had two lenses to trade in and Houston Camera Exchange gave me good trade in value for them so that was more convenient for me. I love the lens. I had the 16-300 and it was a great lens but this one is even sharper.

That's irritating. I have been on B&H's "notification" list for several months... or thought I was.

I don't see how you can say they aren't available online. B&H, Adorama, Cameta & Amazon just to name a few all have it.

Okay, let me go over it again:

B&H - Request Stock Alert
Adorama - On Backorder
Ritz -
Best Buy -
Abt - Special Order - 2 to 4 weeks
Amazon - Temporarily out of stock.

Hmmmm. This is a change from a couple days ago. Ritz & Best Buy are now indicating "in stock." Maybe things are looking up.

How so?

In that a local retail outlet would have it but not the major players, (Full disclosure: I have not been in a retail camera store for about 20 years.) Houston is too far away from Denver for me to check it out and they, apparently, don't sell online. Something to mull over.
