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.

    Slight breeze made it pretty tough to nail focus

    Home alone so I was roaming the city a bit to take some shots. As always, I managed to be late so the sky was already past its prime.
    Plus, I can't edit my raws currently because I need to update to Lightroom 4, so these are JPEGs straight out of camera.

    You might remember this one, now with the DSLR instead of analog.

    Have you seen Uta Barth's work? She just got a MacArthur Genius grant, and her work is this kind of abstract impressionism.

    I'd never seen Barth's work, no. I was meta-amused by my own idea that I accomplished something interesting by taking an unsharp picture of a palm plant without even moving off my terrace chair while taking the photo. This laziness begets 'art' idea can be easily falsified by people who make a little more effort and thus better pictures. Or by people with more convoluted stories behind their work as Barth has, I'm sure. Probably, I am in part influenced in 'my work' by the bokeh rage and all that I've read about it. Something I can't achieve often with my Ricoh GRD4 but like to have more of.

    This want even made me buy a Yashica Lynx 14e IC, but of course shooting film has its own drawbacks.

    On the other hand, I'm more drawn by colour than by shape in photography and other art, I think. One of the reason I liked my fly pic a few pages back. I do like the colours of Barth's work (and of my own palm pic).

    I just scanned my first black and white negative (Ilford XP2 Super) with a Canoscan 8600f. A rather random pic of a windmill (there's of course always one one the horizon here).

    Anyone's got any tips for me in regards to scanning? Is it better to sharpen, up the contrast, darken or lighten while scanning or in Lightroom? Matt perhaps?
