The last picture of the door is the one I like.

Crop some of those pictures.  Some artificial lighting would have been awesome too, like a speedlight with a orange filter or shot in HDR on some of those walls would have looked cool.

Good job, keep shooting well.

I never noticed until I read this but comparing IE and Chrome side by side it is obvious.

Ha ha, tested this on IE both on my work PC and on my home PC, and both times the pictures looked different.  I'll try chrome at home and see what happens.

What lens and what assisted lighting did you use, and did you use a reflector of any kind?

Great pictures, keep up the great work!

Nice pictures, keep up the good work.   :)

Any assisted lighting on these?  You might want to try a reflector next time, get some light under the chin, along the cheek bones, etc.

Here are a few I recently took on a vacation to Osaka and Kyoto... ENJOY!   ;D

(Rememver they're supposed to be overexposed, bleeding color, etc.)  :P

High dynamic Range Imaging
(HDRI or just HDR) is a set of methods used in
imaging and photography, to allow a
greater dynamic range between the lightest and
darkest areas of an image than current standard
digital imaging methods or photographic methods.
This wide dynamic range allows HDR images to
represent more accurately the range of intensity
levels found in real scenes, ranging from direct
sunlight to faint starlight, and is often captured by
way of a plurality of differently exposed pictures
of the same subject matter.

In simpler terms, HDR is a range of methods to
provide higher dynamic range from the imaging

How it works:
Non-HDR cameras take pictures at one exposure
level with a limited contrast range. This results in
the loss of detail in bright or dark areas of a picture,
depending on whether the camera had a low or high
exposure setting.
HDR compensates for this loss of
detail by taking multiple pictures at different exposure
levels .....


...and intelligently stitching them
together to produce a picture that
is representative in both dark and
bright areas.

HDR is also commonly used to refer
to display of images derived from
HDR imaging in a way that
exaggerates contrast for
artistic effect.


The two main sources of HDR images are
computer renderings and merging of multiple
low-dynamic-range (LDR) or
standard-dynamic-range (SDR)

Tone mapping methods, which reduce overall
contrast to facilitate display of HDR images on
devices with lower dynamic range, can be applied
to produce images with preserved or exaggerated
local contrast for artistic effect.

Thanks to Canon Rumors for creating a HDR
section for the HDR enthusiasts. 

Remember, it's supposed to be over exposed,
washed out, bleeding color, blurry, etc. etc.   

Anyone can be
a critic, only a
few dare to be
the artists.

Nice to have you here.

We can be kind and we can be rude.

But we do attempt to help!

Your pictures are nice, except they seem over saturated to me.


Thanks, I appreciate the advice.
I'm just enjoying reading posts from the past, most search results find what I'm looking for or answers to my questions.

Oh, yeah the skies are very bright here on Okinawa.  In fact I think most folks don't realize, some of the pics I post are a tiny bit tweaked, and really the skies do look that blue.   :)

Software & Accessories / Re: Where to position a watermark
« on: July 09, 2012, 04:46:50 AM »
Watermarks help send all sorts of people to my website. Very small in lower right.

I know that Facebook takes it off when showing the people the center portion of the image (this is done automatically, not by people, by the way), but it shows up in the full image.

All sorts of people find my website, and I let my 720 pixel watermarked images go freely around the internet. It is like water down the river. It goes to the ocean, and then comes back to me again.

In fact, maybe there is a reason why it is called a watermark even though there is no water involved with the digital type of watermark. It's because it truly is like water going to the ocean and then coming back again to me!

Agree +100

Now I need to find a way of
putting a watermark on a
picture.  NOT TO PROTECT IT,
but to PROMOTE IT !   ;D 

 :-[ I don't have photoshop,
what else can I use?   ???

Sorry to dig up an old thread,
but I searched and searched and
this was the best result, so shoot
me for using the search and not
starting a new thread.   ::) ???

Not sure how you folks are
on being a necro.

Here's one of my recent B&W photo

Additional space by KivetOnRock, on Flickr

I really like this one, I like the dark
edge at the top of the pic.
See that is what I'm asking about,
how do you have an eye for that,
I guess It'll take me some time. 
Thanks for share.   :)
