Photographers and Artists

Photos needed!

Looks like we have a few photographers and artists in our midst so here's a place to talk about all photography, art, and related subjects.

Photos needed!

We've not changed the POTW for a few weeks now and are currently running a mediocre one of mine as a space filler.

I'm sure some of you talented people must have something for us. Pretty please?

I've got some in the pipeline. Would have had one by now, but I submitted a roll of slide film - took a week to get it developed and then they forgot to scan it to CD. By next week I should have both that film and the digital pics my elder son took at our younger son's wedding, reputed to include a picture of one guy in the air during a flying press-up fairly late in the evening of the reception....

You just know I'm going to have one or two (Up to 11,500 shutter releases on my camera now) :lol:

The autumn colours are peaking right now here in North Georgia. Here's a quick shot I took while passing through the little mountain town of Suches on Sunday. I'm frantically working hard this week to earn a day off to spend in the mountains to take better advantage of nature's display. If I manage it, there'll be more photos to come.

That really is an incredible photo, the colours and composition are superb.

I can easily see why you would want to live there.

Wow!

And thanks.

Not very good quality, I'm afraid - but maybe the subject will compensate:

fyi, the screen cleaner's name is 'Attitude'. At 6 weeks, she used to fight with a Dobermann puppy.

:shock: :lol: :lol: Are they still ever round each other? And if so, do they still spar?

-- Just put Alan's Suches photo up as our new PotW. Love the autumn colours, though on the other hand I wouldn't leave here to go back to a climate that experiences autumn.

For a few days between the photo Kay mentions and Alan's, we had a photo of a breakfast we had in Minehead last year, helping kick off a new feature on the main site that we've been thinking about for some time - a photo gallery of breakfasts. If any of you have photos of breakfasts that you'd to share with us, we'd love to see them... :D

No. Now she teases three dogs which are part Rhodesian Ridgeback. The Doberman belonged to the veterinary nurse who looked after Attitude for us while we were away for a few days. She's the person who rechristened her 'the kitten with attitude'. Until then, the kitten was known as Pushkin because we took her home in a Vodka carton. Someone pointed out that we shoudl have called her Pushka - but then the connection wouldn't have been obvious.

I've now seen the pics my elder son took at the wedding party. The flying press-up is a 3 or 4 frame continuous sequence. Is there an easy way of putting this on the web at around 2 frames a second?

I don't have the orignals yet - the whole set of 180 pics is on Kodak Easyshare at the moment.

Mike, you can create an animated gif with many graphics applications - including the gif. This seems a prime candidate for that treatment.

You can post videos on Photobucket. Maybe that would work.

I forgot about animated GIFs. Thanks. I'll have a go soon.

Oops, I just looked at my last post and it should have read: "Mike, you can create an animated gif with many graphics applications - including the gimp.", although you probably worked that out yourself :D .
