1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I'm thinking it's Continental's terminal at Houston-GBush, correct?

    As much as I don't want to feed his already humongous ego, I do think Labelking's second shot is my favorite posted so far.
    To be perfectly honest, I might be inclined to agree, if I could figure out what it is. I can see what appears to be a guy's arm, a guy's head, and half of the back of a lady's head. The picture is like two inches by two inches on my lowest resolution monitor, and even smaller than that on my normal monitor... but from what I can see, the composition seems to be very interesting and unique. Couldn't really say much about the contrast, focus, subject, or anything else - simply because its so small I can't really tell much about the picture. What is it that he's holding LK? Railing, spear, fishing pole, croquet mallet? And what are they looking at? (or is it purposefully obscured?) You really need to get a bigger version of that.
    It's a square format print, on Efke film ISO 50. It shows a man holding onto on a tent pole with presumably his wife besides him. It was taken at one of those markets where they have the portable tents. I'm not really sure what they were looking at, but that makes it all the more intriguing, no?

    Content aside, it's the mood of the picture that I like.. the color of his hand and the way the watch looks in that photo.

    Yes, I printed it first with Dektol and then immersed it briefly in Selectol-Soft developer so it has that murkier but richer contrast.

    Man In Space your pics are amazing, as are a lot of others. This is one of the best threads going right now, can't believe Tokyo started it. For a beginner, how important is the equipment? I see a lot of you posting the camera you used is why I ask.

    That's my wife, how dare you.
    Cute dog is actually an old Japanese saying borrowed from English which roughly translates to: "very much friendly looking wife person, with nice personality that I am in no way sexually attracted to even though she is very beautiful and talented and you are a very lucky man to have married her, while miraculously managing to marry neither above or below the social, economic, aesthetic, and intellectual status of your most honorable self."

    Whats that supposed to mean? Am I incapable of starting a worthwhile thread? Its because of my mole isn't it. Sob. Seriously, for a beginner (if you are planning to practice, get better, and upgrade later)- buy a 35mm film camera with the following equipment on it. Shutter speed control Aperture control A decent, flexible lens My personal reccomendation is something like the Olympus is-50 (what I started with)

    Tokyo, you're just pissed because you want to fuck my dog/lizard wife.

    LSeca, I am definitely a beginner. I don't think equipment is as important as your own eye. My shots were all taken on automatic setting on a $400 6MP Fuji camera. Thanks for the compliment!

    Wow, I was expecting a decent camera to cost a lot more. Thanks for the link.


    Btw, I have a suspicion your mole is fake.

    If you decide thats the one you want... buy mine. It's in perfect shape and I'll give you a discount cause I know you have a shotgun, and you know I don't.
