    This! Most use Flickr I guess, ImageShack or whatever service might be just as good. You usually get a code for forums there with options for different sizes of preview pictures.

    I find that Flickr helps improve the quality of the photo. I wouldn't recommend photobucket though, they really do downgrade the IQ.

    just use this extension instead: [​IMG] the mods set it up where its automatically resized to a small size. but the old system (and other forums) use this direct image address extension which yields the larger images.

    Full moon on the 12, the harvest moon. I got a great location for this and if all goes well I'll enter a shot or two in the 2012 Windland Exhibition contest.

    I find the bridge in the background somewhat distracting...maybe the second one, with the top of the image cropped a bit?

    First one, the little ball doesn't really add to the scene. And +1 on the bridge, although you could increase the exposure for the bridge a little.

    Thanks, Guys! Really appreciate the feedback. I was also not sure if the bridge or that little ball was adding anything to the shot. I really have to work on my composition.

    yeah try increasing the exposure on the bridge area by making a curves layer and then a mask for that layer as to leave the child and area around her normal focus and the sky area kind of blown out.

    Thanks for your help. I am still unable to figure it out.

    I use minus.com and it gives me these options

    1. Forum code - [​IMG]

    2. Direct Link - http://i.minus.com/i3NhPjcJHN5My.JPG

    3. HTML code - <a target="_blank" href="http://min.us/l3NhPjcJHN5My"><img src="http://i.minus.com/j3NhPjcJHN5My.JPG" border="0"/></a>

    So which one should I put inside the tags. I guess Lawrence meant hyperlink of the pic rather than the the IP address of the pic. So putting http://i.minus.com/i3NhPjcJHN5My.JPG inside [img] should work but it doesnt

    I put this http://i.minus.com/i3NhPjcJHN5My.JPG the image address

    in-between this


    ah ok i see the problem your image hosting site doesn't really offer different url codes for various sizes. only a smaller 500pix size and the original gigantic size. flickr has the different sizes options you can use with the direct link.

    You hit the nail on the head. IMO composition and a thorough understanding of light is what defines a good photographer. Again it's not about if you're a photoshop guru or have the finest equipment money can buy. All these things are is tools of the trade. If you use them as a crutch to "fix" your bad shots just remember garbage in is still garbage out.

    Couple from today. Was homecoming I should have taken more photos of just the football game but it's kind of hard to when you only have 50mm of reach.
