About me:

!! Excited to be buy a Sony a7S II soon! I can't wait! Only 9 days more, maybe! Ack! :D haha! (Oct. 7, 2015; weds.)
Update: Oh my GAHHH! I just got the a7S II about 6 hours ago, at around 4:30 p.m., after work! Ahhhh!!! I'm SOOO excited for this low light monster! It is smaller, and kind of cramping my hands up compared to the D800, which fits my hands nicely. But I'll be making the best of it. "Sacrifices..." :D (Oct. 19, 2015; mon.)

I now am waiting for my first full-frame DSLR! It is the Nikon D800! I can't wait to play with/use it! :) (Sept. 12, 2013; thurs.)
Update: It arrived at 7:08 p.m. on Friday the 13th. :D 2013. Oh boy, two 13s. Does this bode well for me? Yes! I got a full-frame camera. Will it have left sensor focusing problems? I certainly hope not.

Looking into digital camera capture. Fuji S5Pro's dynamic range is really high up there for me. Seems like 'the look' more closely resemble film's ability to keep highlights. Hope that's the case. I just HATE that digital look. 'Crossing my fingers'. HA! ... Update: Woot! I'm getting the S5 Pro. Yippee! My first dSLR. Should be FUN! (Sept. 8, 2007; sat.) --shipment has arrived-WOOHOO!!-(Sept. 11, 2007; tues.)

The way Mosaic Creator is creating those mosaic, by adding color to the images, is just cheating.

I miss working in the darkroom, with the negative image on the easel.

This is where bokeh with the angles actually compliments the gems. :D Nice.

It's rather interesting for me to see sites from BBC news, where they don't have the commenting system available. I actually rather like it, compared to other places like Yahoo news, or any U.S. news sites.

Maybe it's just me, but hearing ridiculous opinions gets on my nerves. Hopefully mine wasn't too ridiculous. :P

CeleryBeats: I did something similar a while back! But more with a panning like approach. Bit harder to nail. You can check it on my website if you like

Those are some pretty cool images and effects, with the panning.

I like it!
EDIT: I can't just say this and let it be, seeing as how much negative feedback there is. I, myself, am not into modern "art", with all that paint spatter, squares of color, blends of two colors, etc.

But in this case, I think it's a nice experiment, to play with the blur. I like the contrast it creates between the sharpness of the subjects in the background, and the veil of soft blur in the foreground. I applaud this photographer for trying it out.

The "Thich Quang Duc's self-immolation (1968)" looks very realistic. Great work there.

Bob Janes: I score on most, although I only lusted after 9 and 10...

I confess that I'm not familiar with 11 at all - can someone enlighten me?

@ Paul Amyes, don't you mean the fixer varnish for the positive print peeled off from the Polaroid negative? That stuff stunk too.

If anyone has not seen it yet, see "Carl Sagan - Pale Blue Dot" on youtube. It is inspiring (link below):
