Love the moose!

Is the saturation set really high on your camera (or in post-production (PP))? the blues and green seem overly vivid in your moose & boats shots. I'd also crop out the cars on the boats shot, as they distract from the Sutton Bay, MI boat and its reflection.

Here are some of mine:

Nice pics, rusty.

The wharf, with the square rigger (3rd pic), I think, may be a bit more dramatic in B/W. I hope you don't mind, I took the liberty of photoshopping the image:

I've been to your site and looked through your stuff Rusty. You're a great photographer. That picture of the Resonator is beautiful, and I really love the picture of the ropes on the boat. The depth of field on that is amazing.

Not a great pic, but this is my main camera.

I was driving down the road in Washington and saw this sunset and I had to pull over to take a picture.

This picture was an accident, but I like it.

How do I make thumbnails?

Download a program called IrfanView. It's free. Open an image in it, and go to the top to the "Image" drop down, and click "Resize/Resample." Type in a number in the space where it has the pixels, and it automatically re-sizes it to fit the same aspect ratio. The one's I posted are all 500x376.

Thanks Lefty, I tried Irfanview and failed to create clickable thumbnails, I think we must have got our wires crossed slightly. There must be an html tag that does it, maybe Rusty will be able to bring his computing smarts to bear on this?
In the meantime, here's a buzzard:

Ahhhh I misunderstood. I thought you meant just making them smaller like I did. I had just woken up when I first got on this morning. Hadn't had my coffee yet :D

Lefty has clickable images because he "uploaded" them to the post (see the "Upload attachment" tab below the "Save|Preview|Submit" buttons). Our pictures are hosted on other sites, so we don't get clickable thumbnails.

A site like Flikr will generate multiple images for you when you upload a picture, and you could make a clickable thumbnail like so:
Code: Select all
[url=http://server/path/to/fullimage.jpg][img]http://server/path/to/thumbnail.jpg[/img][/url]


ie:

In North America, buzzards are a lot uglier...

Rusty, what they call a Buzzard in the UK is a Buteo - a Red Tailed Hawk - over here.

Thanks Lummo. Looks like some people are using the term Buteo to avoid that ambiguity. I'll use it in future so that nobody knows what I'm talking about :blink:

Oddly, when I first met Jane's parents, her mother had a buzzard named Theo in a narrow little house in the garden.

Seeing your future mother in law with a hawk on her wrist is INTIMIDATING.

A buzzard here is called a "vulture" by the ornithologists.

Buteos are called "hawks." The ornithologist sorts call them "broad winged hawks."

The Redtailed Hawk, for some obscure reason, is the official bird of Bristol, Tennessee.
