Thank you, Craig. I'm still waiting for neksus, I guess he's okay to start it off first.

I'll get something up today once the little one goes down - he goes *plum* over the laptop (my workstation) so it's hard to even turn it on when he's awake lol

Thanks guys :)
I don't get to do alot of extreme DOF in my day to day family shots, so I figured this was as good a time as any!

Yeah, liking the DOF in that shot.

I would comment on the quality, but i think it's my new internet set up that's making my viewing less impressive.

I can upload the full size photo, but it's a little over 5 megs.
The TIF is 30 :P

Yey, thanks Mark. I just like the banana dancing than the one with the sunglasses. So, it doesn't actually mean anything.


Thank you :)

It's worth noting that this came straight out of the camera - no levels, saturation or other adjustments of any kind :)

Thank you, too. I'm gonna pause my posting for the time being, can we omit the 2 days time constraint part. I just think it'd be great if I can have more time to plan for the next picture to post in, rather than picking the ones from the previous set, which is not bad after all, but I just want to better myself and put a soul into it. What do you think?

I couldn't get up at 4AM, so I got up at 6AM exactly this morning. I wanted to go to the park where there are lakes, but it's driving distance. So, I walked to a park nearby my house and sat and plotted quietly. Taken some shots but don't really know which one is the best one. This one should be okay?

Oh Craig, that's sweet but I know you said what you meant so I took it as a learning lesson for each of your comment. Thank so much for everything you have been a great source of help to me during my starting phase in photography, hope I'm better now.

Great, shots both of you :D I'm really starting to get into this competition and hope more of them come out :P


Awesome shot George, I'm no professional, but I like how the lamp-thingy :lol: on the right shining through the slide make the slide look a little more than ordinary

George, go take the same shot as your most recent entry and play about with the ISO settings this time. Every time you adjust it look at how different they look in the screen view on camera. You'll probably have to play about with the exposure too if they appear too dark, but you can get some really nice shots at night time when you do that.

If you do it i'd really like to see what you managed to get.

I have no idea why it shined through it. :) Thanks Bud.

I decided I should look at the positive comments. :D (just kidding). Sweet, Bogey [offtopic] hey man sorry didn't check your website lately, I was revenging the opportunity to publish some more websites before the semester starts on Monday, then I'd have no time.[/offtopic]

sorry and excuse me for that.

Hi Craig thanks really for looking at my shot. I had played the ISO but my camera screen doesn't have instant view on the screen, I have to take a shot to see the difference every time, so that's a bit of a downer.

Exposure; Thank you for the keyword, Craig I think I really should be looking into that, but not now, I was meaning to ask you people advice about the exposure before this just forgot. Now that is mentioned. *Awesomecoolysaid* (my new word). :D

Craig, I definitely would be taking more shots, I'm not sure I'd be going back to that place, maybe Yes.

Thank you for the lesson.

I'd rather play around with exposure times and a tripod than I would worrying about ISOs affecting night shots ;)

It depends on what you want to get, you can have some really neat looking night shots when you play around with both.
