The Turning Gate has a variety of plug-ins for web build using Lightroom which include password protection. I've built my image galleries using the plug-in CE2 and the main site with Wordpress. Here's an example I made up for you using one of my galleries. You can still access my main site from the gallery without the user name and password.

The link to The Turning Gate is: http://theturninggate.net

Hope this may be of help.

What bothers me a lot more than any security risks - perhaps because (rightly or wrongly) I don't perceive them having that high a probability of occurrence - is what looks to be, emerging quite recently, a sheer lack of adequate product QC and process bullet-proofing before they release new updates; this is a concern, because I expect resulting impacts to have a much higher probability of occurrence that will affect me. Thom's article is very pointed on this matter and deserves attention in Adobe. Looking from the outside in, one gets the impression that the finance managers and marketing folks are fully in control there, while the developers/engineers are doing their level best pushing the leading edge of very complex software, but gasping for breath. Technically, LR remains a brilliant application. Again, this would appear to be less of a specific CC matter - rather more a broader corporate problem manifesting itself in various ways, including the management of the latest CC release. That said, I found the 2014 release came off without a hitch, but I did wait a while before installing that one too. I am still waiting for the dust to settle before upgrading to the 2015 package. I've lived without Dehaze and B&W sliders in the localized adjustment panels up to now and my photos tell me I can keep waiting. Don't need the aggravation - stress control is key to maintaining good health and good health is useful for making good photographs.

+ 1 well said.  For sure the 2015 upgrade could have been handled a bit better.

I'll let Mark comment on any skin tones he may have printed in the course of his review (and many thanks for that extensive effort, Mark.  It is very helpful).  I'll only say that in prints I've made, including people, there have been zero surprises with respect to tonality or color.  To my eye the P800 renders pretty much exactly as does the 3880.  (I've yet to print anything that would exhibit the deeper blacks that Mark speaks of).

Canon 100/2 wide-open, 1/45th second, ISO 10,000. Gamma curve added using Fortran. No NR or Sharpening.

The Canon is surprisingly easy to use "follow-focus".

I have a Marumi Variable ND filter and I am very happy with it.  Good quality at a good price.

You are lucky. I have one and it is unusable due to the terrible loss of sharpness.

Another endorsement from me of Michael's and Marc's recommendations.
Morten's book is well written, and while impassioned (as are his presentations on expeditions) it is factually rather than merely emotionally based.

Buy it, read it and persuade your friends to do likewise.

Bart, what I posted is all accurate and correct. What you posted is not. But we will part ways agreeing to disagree. I stopped having this argument with newbies years and years ago. Same with the cropped sensor argument. Some misunderstandings just never seem to die. But honestly, good light to you. I mean that.
