Is there any chance to make all the pics available in a nicer way?
I mean with any photo manager engine...

Hi,
I tried to made a gallery of all photos
By the way, there is some caveats :
- There is only photos directly posted on Canon Rumors Forum (I was not able to parse & download others pics)
- I didn't dedup files (it seems that some people have posted 2 times the same photo)
- It's possible there is some miss or others mistake, because I used batch to download & process all files, and I didn't check all
- Filenames are "File attach ID" on CanonRumors forum engine
- I used simpleviewer as gallery engine, it should be OK to see the galleries on various devices

Canon Rumors guy, if there is a problem doing this, tell me and I will remove that (or remove this post ;-) )

The links are by categories :
Abstract
Action Sport
Astrophotography
Black and White
Creative Lighting
Event Photography
Flora
Landscape
Macro
People
Street
Underwater
Wildlife

Enjoy !

An image is an image.


We'll see how much it will be photo contest or photo+ps/lr contest.
This is where things might get interesting.

Yeah, some are amazing and would have been really hard to set up with multiple flashes, long exposures, HDRs, whatever.
But there's a few than imply impossibility, ie could have only been made using photoshop/gimp/whatever.
I don't mind competing against them, my photos look good to me and that's what counts. I don't have photoshop and my gimp skill is limited to a bit of colour/curves tweaking. I'd rather use a lensbaby instead of a cheesy 'blur the edges' filter. I'd rather use a super-fast lens than cut my subject onto another layer, blur the background, and put the subject back. I'd rather use a Tilt lens than just blur the top and bottom of an image. But if my photo is competing against someone who does do one of these, I don't mind, it's just the same as a B+W competing against a bird shot, or a portrait against a landscape. There's only one lens at the end of the day, so we all have to be the best of everything to get it...


ps, I don't think CR-guy would like the multiple-image-gallery idea, it specifically detracts from ad-revenue (4 ads per 15 entries or so) which is probably paying for the prizes. But either way, it didn't load for me anyway...

Brouno,

I know you meant well, but it was probably not appropriate to do this for two reasons:

  • CR Guy organized the contest, and this pulls "page views" away from his site.
  • The photographers own the copyrights on these photos, and have not given you permission to reproduce them.

I don't mean this as a personal criticism, I am certain that you did this as a well-intentioned service.  You might give this more thought, though.

I am in no way bad mouthing your comment, so please don't take it that way! I use elements to modify my photo's as I am not able to afford a tilt-shift, or an F2.8 or faster to blur backgrounds. I do try to tweak my colors a little as the lenses I do have are not very good. But I still have a passion to take photos as I just love to do it. And it's true about some of what you say, but I see it in a different way. I see it as a person with low quality lenses and trying to make them look better going against people who already have high-end gear.

OK, I'm done posting my 2 cents worth... And I do wish everybody best of luck with all the nice photo's that were posted. I looked at alot of them and they made me want to spend more time shooting like alot of you do.

I have to agree with Orangutan.  You have absolutely no right to be posting photos on your site without the permission of the photographers.  Therefore, I must insist that you remove my photos from your site immediately.

Thank you.

I appreciate your good intentions, and the interface is convenient, but please  remove my photos from your site - I did not give you permission to display them on your site.

Aheum, OK. I didn't think about these issues ...

Just i want to say that I didn't take any advantage doing that (no pub or either, it's a personnal website), and I doubt that this will keep ads income for canonrumors guy (did you browse all forum pages ?)

No matter, access is no more possible.
