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 was gonna say molest. Man, you're twisted.

    LOL... I thought that look was saying "Give me the food and I'll kill you quickly", but you're right, now I'm pretty sure it means, "You sure do have a purty mouth".

    One of my friends came back from Japan with bruises, which he claimed were due to the deer at one of the temples, I believe. I wasn't sure whether to believe him at the time, but I decided that no self-respecting man tells a story about getting chased and beaten down by deer unless it's the truth.

    You know... I had no specific interest in Africa or wild life until my trip to Africa. What an eye-opening experience

    Amazing pictures GDL!
    Thanks! It's mostly the camera and the subjects that are responsible - I just push the little button [​IMG]

    I use the Nikon 18-55mm that came with my camera for most pictures. For the safari close ups though, I used a Nikkor 70-300mm zoom (just didn't feel like getting too close to that leopard...)

    Not quite to the OP's point, but to have a mindblowing photographic experience:

    http://photo.net/photodb/photo-of-the-week/


    i don't like most of those photo.net pictures because they are so blatantly photoshoped that it cheapens the image. many of them are visually striking, for a moment, but a closer inspection reveals zero meaning in the iconography. it's like looking at a cartoon rather than a photograph. however, the portrait from june 18 is gorgeous, and the june 25 is cool too.

    Some of them are very good, especially the phones that have no or very little computer-assisted modifications. Personally, I'm all about shooting in film without any Adjustment of the photograph at all save for cropping. I rather show off my photography skills than my Photoshop skills.

    This morning I took a walk through town. I just bought a new camera. It can do auto exposure bracketing, so I also experimented with High Dynamic Range pictures.

    Photoshop and Photography are not mutually exclusive.
