Interesting peek at the future. I'll throw out one question though: All those different forms of interactive displays? Where are the cameras? How could grandma see the girls from the kitchen counter?


And I'm not sure I want work to interupt me while I'm in the bathroom -it's bad enough when the phone goes off!

There is a lot going on, with lack of Airshows, it's time to get some very nice related subject matter and some not so related. I think it brings out the creativity in us. I like the results,...The Crew Chief, is grest.

Tom opened the door and I'm going in. The x number of pages following his post show no lack of aircraft photos to salivate over, I am certainly out of them for a while.

So I offer these instead:

And any serious internet photo thread has to have cat pictures:

Erich, have you tried building a 45-frame HDR panorama from D800 RAW files?


Wow, are you trying to print a life size landscape? The largest file I've worked with in Photoshop was about 980MB, and that was on a base spec 2.5GHz i5 iMac with only 8GB RAM. Saving was a bit slow, but otherwise it ran fine.

Here's my take on a shot a few people have already shown.

I need a critical eye cast upon this one; does the water work? I already posted an iPad edit of the raw photo, but just reworked it in Photoshop. It's a blend of 3 shots for the lower portion of the pic. It sure would be quicker to get it right in-camera!

edited for crop

Works for me, though I might want a little tighter crop.

Agree with Zim. A tad too much dead space at camera right...

Inch or 2 off the top and perfect, nice shot.

Thanks all. Guess the PShop worked if you're noticing the crop more.

That brings up a thought/question from me. Is there a preferred "percentage of the frame that a single ship should take up? Erich has about 50% there now, so should he be going for 2/3rds? For the record I agree about the dead space, just wondering if there is a number to put to the look or if it is just gut feelings.

Zim, I just sent my Apple guy this spec sheet and asked him to build it for me. This will replace my aging Mac Pro Tower. I'll drop 32GB of RAM in it when I get it home.


No solid state drive Jim? I have one in my I7 PC it starts up and is running in 10 sec flat

Jan-Arie, the Fusion drive is a combined Flash and Hard disk drive.

Brian, for me the crop depends on the mood and movement of the image. I may also change the angle of the subject if it looks better. It's mostly a gut thing rather than a rule thing.

It's a feel and mood thing for me...
