*** CTF Mini Challenge #106: Panning

The new challenge is entitled "Panning".

I would love to learn the technique - I have only tried it a few times with
limited success -

The challenge will end next Wednesday, January 10, 2007 at 00:00:00 GMT. To see
what time that is in your timezone, please use the following link:



The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. You post
an image. The host chooses the winner. The decision of the judge
(the Host!) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then
chooses the next topic, judges the winner and passes on the baton
to that person.

Any picture you've taken is eligible regardless of time taken and

You can do all the post processing you want. However, it is most
helpful if you list your camera and lens along with your photo.
Feel free to comment on other contestant's images. If you want
someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put an
asterix ( ) next to the title of the image.

Here are some guidelines

When posting your picture, change the Subject of your post to
display your picture title. This way, when someone comments (i.e.
replies), it will read your photo's title. If all entries read "Re:
CTF Mini Challenge #61"... it will be very boring to scan the list.

Either embed your image in the thread or, if you must, supply a
link to it. Keep in mind, however, most people don't want to click
to open photos hosted elsewhere (i.e. on your website). Also try
and resize your photos prior to posting so they're sized
appropriately for viewing without having to scroll ( 800 pixels on
the longest side works best.)

And how do you embed a picture? I'm glad you asked:

1. While your photo on Pbase (or any other web site) is open, copy
the URL address from the address box on your tool bar, then paste
it into your reply thread. Add a .jpg extension to get the photo to
show up. Click on preview to make sure it's what you want.


2. Right click on the image in Pbase (or where ever you've hosted
it), click on "Properties"... highlight the link with the .jpg
extension on it and paste it into your message text.

Provide any additional information you want.

You may enter up to THREE pictures, but they should be within a
single post. Please limit the size of your entries to conserve
bandwidth. 250K or less works well.

As a show of courtesy, and to save bandwidth, please remove the
original post when replying, so you don't bring back any previous
