Re: (baudinm) Workshop: hungry goat

Overall, I agree it is a good workshop. The straightening of the buildings really helped the picture. The blurring of the background was tastefully done as well. However, I'm not so sure changing to...

Re: (JEAN-NOEL) Workshop: Old Barn and Wagon

I swear it looks like a picture of a model or toy set, even though I know it's not. Sort of reminds me of the special effects of some old, low budget movies I've seen. Although I don't think it is...

Re: Sunset Pictures

While not as good as having an actual filter, you can recreate the effect someone in your graphics software. "http://www.gimpguru.org/Tutorials/NDFilter/" contains a tutorial for the GIMP.

Re: Comments or critiques??

Re: digital or traditional?

I prefer digital, simply because I've had photo labs ruin more than one set of pictures. In my experience, Wal-Mart seems to be the worse, but maybe I've just been unlucky and Wal-Mart isn't the only...

Re: what is best way to maximize space on an SD card?

Personally, I would chose 1600x1200. Using higher compression results in lost info. OTOH, do you really need 2304x1728 resolution? What do you intend to do with the pictures? Make prints? Well then,...

Re: portable media card copier?

Re: Is there a problem with my monitor?
