Nice work, Dale! I enjoyed watching you and the crusty old guys talking cameras and film.

AstroStan: "color distracts you from the image"

And goosed-up color, even more so. I can't help but notice that nearly every photo in the recent awards is hyper-saturated. But I suppose that's what grabs the competition for eyeballs, even if it's only a 1-3 second glance. This aesthetic runs rampant in pretty pic astro-imaging.

Hmm. Last I checked, we live in a world of color. I do believe you are the jaded one.

I wonder if the overheating problems have been addressed.

Has he finally switched to a digital workflow? Maybe his pictures will be in color now.

How about adding an embed feature? Until then, Google Photos is useless to me.

odpisan: I found my own way .. I've made diferent greeting cards of my photos & I send those selfmade cards by email.
:o)

Not very useful if you're on the road or on vacation and want to send a postcard to friends or family.

Although these cameras are enticing...I'll stick with my Merrills. The matched lenses are excellent and they are small, simple cameras. Not an all-purpose camera but a top-notch performer if applied and used correctly.

You can tell this guy really loves the water and the waves (who wouldn't in Hawaii??). These are very nice photographs...he has captured some special images that are interesting both creatively and technically.

On photo Fountain Pen1 in the Pen & Paper challenge (6 comments in total)

Two "0.5" votes? Hmm. Methinks I smells something fishy. Of course, many of these challenges have a disreputable, low-tide odor. Nice image!

In reply to:

NilsBV: Oh for crying out loud! Not another one of these challenges. 8 of them. Talk about an over-inflated ego for the guy running them.

I agree that 8 of these challenges is absurd. But there is no need for name calling. The person may have been over-ambitious but he doesn't come across as having an "over-inflated ego". Sometimes things just don't go the way we expect them to. Nevertheless, I hope better care will be given to selecting challenges that invite broad participation.

Shutter speed should be 1/250 sec. Not 25 sec.
