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,

    Yes, "Move closer" was (is?) a great thread.

    Ha, no, just your average dude wearing most of a nun's habit.

    Also, after using iPhoto for years, I recently upgrade to Lightroom. Holy shit!

    But of course!



    I did the same thing a few months ago. I used the Canon and Fujifilm software with PS before, but now use Lightroom to process my raw files. Sounds like you like it?

    Yeah I like Lightroom a lot. Only been using it a couple of weeks so haven't really put it through all the paces, but the color/tone adjustments are more intuitive and more subtle. I want to go back and fix the white balance on dozens of shots I butchered with iPhoto (and, let's face it, when I shot them). White balance for mixed indoor available light is probably my #1 problem with the digital pics I take.

    The workflow I'm still adjusting to, but the results I've been quite happy with.

    Yes, I understand white balance problems. Sometimes B&W is a convenient solution :).

    I'm happy with it too. It's a lot of software for your dollars (euro's in my case).

    Thanks! I just got off the phone with the St. Louis weather office (I'm a spotter for them) and they reviewed the photos and went back through the radar sweeps looking for rotation in the storm. The scans didn't show anything but they reminded me that this spin up was so brief that the scans missed it. Since the trees obscure the horizon we've decided that it could have been a tornado but then maybe not. To actually be called a tornado the column needs to be visible from cloud to ground or there's debris in the air. In any case I got a few pics of a rather rare weather phenomenon up close.

    color, but that blue in the background keeps my eye wandering up to it. If you go B+W you need to darken her skin it looks blown out a bit esp. in the nose area
