  • JahnG, I think you can get an updated driver to use your Canoscan 8800 with Windows 7.  Here's a link: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/windows_7/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_8800f?selectedName=D ...
  • uzman1243, Nice photos.  I'm curious how you 'averaged' them together.  Did you stack them in layers in Photoshop or some other program?  Details please! Thanks, Steve
  • Geoff, Thank you for posting - I didn't know the LCD would display like that!  It might be handy when shooting in dark conditions as it's easier to see than the top screen. The 'Info' button has ...
  • Ned-B, I love your abstract colour images from head cleaning.  You have a great attitude - making lemonade from lemons, etc. I don't own a 4900, but came across this the other day.  Maybe it's ...
  • Frédéric, You have to push the AF button at the top right on the back of the camera, then use the multi-controller to choose a focus point.  To return it to the center point, push the 'Set' button ...
  • molleredu, Nice star shots! The noise looks reasonable to me. The exif says ISO 1600, f/4, 30 seconds. I would have guessed that would result in underexposure. Did you have to increase exposure ...
  • Commented on Beatles vs. Rolling Stones challenge

    ForrestGump,

    By the way, 'Angie' was written in 1972, so it doesn't meet your pre-1970 rule.

  • Commented on Beatles vs. Rolling Stones challenge

    ForrestGump,

    You're running a challenge based on songs by the Beatles and Rolling Stones - but you're concerned that the photographs won't wander too far from 'realism'?
    It's good that the...

  • Ubersteiner, Welcome to the forum - I see you've just joined. About the photo - at first glance it seems pretty ordinary, but your title suggests you were trying for more than just a dead flower ...

    griddi, I converted the colour version to BW with Photoshop, increasing the reds and decreasing the greens and yellows.   Some cropping too. Thanks for letting me try the edit.  It's a nice photo.  ...
  • Sunshine4784, In Photoshop, click 'Image' > 'Adjustments' > 'Levels' Then select 'red' channel and slide the left and right pointers to the edges of the histogram as shown here . . . . Then do the ...
  • griddi, Nice shot of the spider in its web! It's sharp, and the noise is reasonable for ISO 1600. I think the colour version works better for separating the subject from the background. The f/18 ...

    Placed 7th in the challenge.
  • RemcoR, I'm not even sure if you posted these for critique, but I'll offer a comment anyway. I like the middle frame - it's got some visual harmony. A path through the dark forest is a classic ...
  • Replied in Self-portrait
    I like your photograph.  It's a powerful and intriguing image.  You've put the subject right in the center, framed him with stark, vivid white, and dramatically vignetted the edges.  It's a very ...
  • Commented on Eric and Erica at the park in the Babie's day out! challenge

    Delightful photograph - and one of my top favorites in the challenge. The expression is pure joy, a warm moment between Mother and Child. Thanks for sharing - it brightened my day.

  • G'day, ktk8! Wikipedia on 'macro photography' . . . . . "By some definitions, a macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative or image sensor is life size or greater. ...
  • Ken, Straightforward documentary shots, but technically very well done. I like the processing - your photos almost always have beautiful tones and contrast. Of these two, I prefer the top frame ...
