Yet another cat picture (sorry, Cincy). It's -12 degrees F with a windchill of -35F, so my pictures are all taken inside and I don't feel comfortable posting pictures of my children on a public forum. So, here is Silky again (with kit lens)...

Again, no pp and I am always open to constructive criticism.

I'm very impressed with how the camera captures her grayish-blue and brown and keeps her white areas white.

That reminds me of when I was a teenager, if one of us would pass out from drinking too much, we would draw stuff on that persons face and take pictures! Ahhhh the good 'ol days.

I had a picture of my daughters in cloth diapers and t-shirts on my family gallery a couple years ago and it was stolen and placed on an adult diapering fetish website. :mad: :mad: :mad: I've been leery of posting their pictures in public ever since. Is there a way to protect it if I post one here?

Wow!! I am not sure if it would work on this site, but I know there are programs that allow you to make it so the picture you post cannot be right clicked on or saved from the site. Or, you could post links to your family gallery and just make your gallery download protected. I think that would work.

If I had been you, I would have slapped the sickos with a lawsuit. I just gotta ask the obvious question... how did you find out it was on the fetish website?:p Im just teasing:o

Kellie
02-04-2007, 08:49 AM
There were galleries full of children in diapers. I, along with many other parents, reported it to the FBI and the site has been shut down. The last I heard, the site owner's computer had been seized. Unfortunately, this is very common and there isn't a whole lot that can be done. :(

Kellie

That's a legit question. ;) A friend who owns a children's clothing business had hits on her website from the forum. She followed the link back to them and discovered the galleries. She posted on a parenting forum and word about the site quickly spread. There were literally hundreds of stolen photos from personal and business galleries. Sick.

Nice picture, Kellie. I like the warm colours. I also like the smooth background.

That must have been quite a shock, finding pictures of your kids on such a website. I can well imagine that you are not comfortable sharing pictures of them on the internet now. As to ways to protect images, I think all methods of copy protection can be broken one way or the other, so the only way you can really protect them is by using obtrusive watermarks. Pictures that are watermarked in such a way won't be used for things like that, I guess. Also, keep the size small, large files would be attractive to use.

What are those buildings used for?

They are bathing sheds, privately owned sheds on the beach front that families use when spending time on the waters edge. It's sort of a Melbourne tradition. Twenty or so years ago they were considered an eyesore and councils were trying to get rid of them. Now people have them designer decorated and I seem to remember that the record price for one is some Aus$600,000.00 (that is simply the shed, there is no land involved other than what is directly under the shed and that is owned by the Government as part of the beach reserve)

Though I may have enhanced the sky a little, it already was beautiful blue from the start. It's not polarized, my polarizer will be delivered today.

I went out yesterdy and bought a new tripod and head (Manfrotto 190pro + 322cr2.. more on this in another thread). Well seeing I got some new kit I had to head out last night in the icey cold weather to test it out ;)

Anyways the head allows you to turn the camera from landscape to portrait quite easy so snapped a couple shots like that. This is the result:

Could you expound a little on the HDR technique you used? I have seen several methodologies, and haven't tried any. Just wondering things like software, bit-depth of files merged, etc.

My polarizer was delivered yesterday. However, both today and yesterday the sky was overcast. Fortunatly, at the end of this day, there was an interesting sunset. I was a bit late, the sun had already disappeared behind the clouds. Here are two of the pictures I took. I know I'm cheating posting two at the same time, but I just don't have the patience to wait 4 hours to post the next :rolleyes:. I accidentally used ISO1600 for all my shots today :o. I used a polarizer to enhance the reflection in the water.

That is a lot of rotations for .3 seconds, very cool.
Thanks. The following two photos will also give the members a better idea of what I took a photo of earlier. In one photo, the heli is coming in for a landing (too bad I ended up panning through something unexpectedly) and the second is of an inverted heli being flown by someone else. I'd post the settings but I need to get ready and head back out to the airfield.

Since i posted a picture of Auch cathederal yesterday and mentioned D'Artagnan. Here's the famous statue.

The statue of d'Artagnan who was based on the real life person, Charles de Batz, Comte d'Artagnan born nearby in the ch‚teau de Castelmore, and written about by Alexandre Dumas.

Sorry about the quality of this pic, had dialled in +2EV unknowingly and couldn't work out what the heck was going on. Unfortunately this was really the only pic salvageable.

By the way, next to the photogallery I build myself, I now also have a flickr gallery. The old gallery was a nuissance to keep up to date, it didn't allow people to leave comments, and the server is down too often, so therefore I decided it was better to start using flickr. I will keep the old gallery, but will update it only rarely. The new gallery can be found here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dennis87

If you were using it continuously it has probably just overheated and stopped working until it cools down.
Nikon build some sort of overheating protection into the circuitry.

I think adding to a little contrast and USM to the first one and it would be just fine. The 2nd is better overall, but the blown out sky takes away, so just play around with photoshop a bit and the first one will look fine.

If you dont mind, I took the liberty of doing a little adjusting to the first one.. what do you think, yomny?

My friend and I took a stroll through San Joaquin Sanctuary again this afternoon. However, there wasn't much for opportunities. We tried tailing this guy after he made an appearance, but only had 1 chance to really get shots as he flew by. I managed to get a single shot (luckily a decent one).

Because he was so far (and I only have 300mm limit!), I decided to crop this 100%. No resizing was done.

Shooting arenacross indoors with the 70-300
Lessons learned the 70-300mm 4-5.6 is not good for this lighting
even at iso 800
I should have saved the grand from the d80 and got the proper lens for these conditions for the D50
