Quoted for notification purposes... Off topic, is there anway to "notify" a user in IPB that he was mentioned in the forums? sorta like twitter?(Though I do see how this can be abused... Just food for thought anyway...)

I deserve that. :lol: I browser the forums when I have time, but just never noticed the photography forum (maybe because it's called "Camera?")

I had some where the face was lit, but that took away from the creepiness of the shot, so I didn't use those. Here's the complete set on Flickr:

Can't browse flickr at work, ( Though they block directly, but not hotlinking, dimwits...) I'll check it out later.

@ chase Maybe that could be an idea brought up. The digital gallery used to be monthly and got voted to yearly? Perhaps a more suitable name than "digital camera lab" could be found? "Photography forum" Neo-Photography :p, Photograhy bits. Anyway 2 cents.

I'm working on the whole idea of a monthly competition, hopefully I'll get it set up soon ready for March :)

To me that is way overboard with HDR. The purpose is to blend a well exposed sky with a well exposed foreground.

You can tell when it's over done when everything has an unrealistic halo around it.

Not really a fan, sorry.

No reason to be sorry, the point was to play with it, and many others have said they loved it. ;)

Actually had many request for a printable versions of the pics, which is a new.

thanks for your opinion though.

Here is one "done right", which you may appreciate.

Yes, but what's the point of creating unrealistic photos? That's my opinion on it, like you said, probably other people will like, I agree with chase on this one. The second stop sign looks a lot better HDR wise, composition wise, it's lacking, you need to stop putting your subjects dead center, see how the pole of the stop sign loses "perspective" in regards with the fence? Play around a bit consider the 10 seconds rule ( Before pressing the shutter, takes 10 seconds to compose: http://lightism.co.uk/10secondrule/

I actually got job offers over these photos, and im not asking to be criticized. or asked questions about why "i did it wrong".

Thanks though, i will no longer post pictures here. We're supposed to be sharing pictures. Not explaining to others why we did what they thing is wrong.

I never replied to any of your pictures and asked you negative questions.

Toodles.

Dude, it's constructive critism! no harm meant! That is the point of the forum, to have healthy discussion. Whatever works for you, doesn't work for me and viceversa! Which what this discussion brought, chase pointed out he didn't like it and you rebutted by manner of saying other people do like it! take a chill pill!

You should try posting on dpreview... they will make you crazy!

Its unsolicited. Enjoy yourself. I won't be posting any more of my work here ;) Apparently none of you understand art, and i could care less to explain it. Like i said, these pictures received many positive reviews, and also some job offers, That's enough to tell me i'm right.

Wait? Art isn't criticized ?! It's the other way around! That's the reason Art Critics exist!

again, take a chill pill!!! Whatever works for you, doesn't work for me and viceversa! Which what this discussion brought, chase pointed out he didn't like it and you rebutted by manner of saying other people do like it! Which is just fine and dandy!

edit: check this out: There's a challenge on dpreview on "overdone" HDR! http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Challenge.aspx?ID=4037 This just proves your point! Different strokes for different folks!

So You're one of those weird people that goto art museums and bitch about everything? No i rebutted with one done right (in his ooinion), to show that i do know what HDR is, and these were done for fun, and created a cool effect. Then you started going on about positioning of stop signs. It doesn't matter, discussions is over , or you can talk with your buddies about how horrible i am at positioning stop signs. i'm done :D

Dude? wow... Seriosly? it's MY opinion, why should MY opinion bother you that much? On how -- I -- like certain things... damn... Forget about it.

Blank, I agree with Guppy on this one. We share the photos, tips, suggestions, etc.. on this forum which the discussions is for.

If you do not believe about any comments from us or photos sites, then why don't you build your new own art gallery somewhere... you will be realized that people look at your photos and leave you "Too much HDR", or any said suggestions like "you need external flash for that" instead of "great job!" comments. See how you feel about that you have 4 "great job" comments and 246 said suggestions to improve your photo at your art gallery then you will realize that Guppy is right.

I started taking photos since 2009 which I got the camera... I learned from my brother and these people on this forum. Including other sites and the books I have here.

Be friendly and learn. That way you can learn from us and you will have better photos next time.

I posted a photo of camaro on here while back and I was told that the colors were spot on.. I was like "Yes!" lol.. Best comment so far.

All I have to say on the matter is that even though some may appreciate the over-done HDR, I would say take it to a critique thread over on /r/Photocritique and see what happens.

At the end of the day, the purpose of this thread is for you and I to share our photos and our passion for photography. If someone sees something that might need improving (in their eyes), then they have every right to comment on it. If you feel that it's okay, then you're free to reply saying 'It appears all right on my end, and people have said they like it.' But acknowledge their critique as well.

We're here to help each other improve our technique, and that's what this thread is for.

I just found this place! How's this for a first submission? I only have access to the low-res version from work, but it was taken with two external flashes setup for rim lighting, fired wirelessly with a Pocket Wizard. I didn't do the makeup. :)

Looks interesting but has an odd mix of hard and soft light.

Been caught up with work lately ( rant: boss ridiculously pressures me...). Photos either taken with iphone 4 or 4s ( Still at work, but I wanted to contribute to the thread one way or another... "Blank" would be suprised how I give my opinion on photos, yet acknowledge that for whatever reason I like, these photos below, are amazing for me ;) I like specially how the blur works for the white over exposed nincompooch in the dSLR lcd, the over exposure is caused by the iPhone, on the dSLR it was exposed properly)

Fun has never been cheaper! An empty toilet paper roll for Phobos to play with:

I'm a sucker for dog photos! My only advice ( That I myself don't take if you look at my above post) is wake her up for the photo! Though she looks pleasantly asleep :p

      Gallery: Microsoft dresses up E3 booth in black, showcases One S, Sea of Thieves and more
      by Timi Cantisano



      Over the past couple of years, Neowin has provided virtual booth tours by publishing galleries of Microsoft's Xbox booth at E3. This year, the booth offers a more matured look, as the company has strayed from emblazoning the setup in "Xbox Green", and has instead, opted to go with a simple black motif.



      Although some of the first signage you'll see entering the Xbox booth is for Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3, make no mistake, the Xbox One S is the first main attraction booth visitors will be greeted by, and it is fantastic. Although you cannot lay hands on the newly announced console, it's still a sight to behold and looks mesmerizing from every angle.



      Pushing deeper into the booth, kiosks to play the aforementioned Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3 become available, along with other titles announced at the Xbox E3 Briefing. Ghost Recon Wildlands, Cuphead, The Turing Test are just some of the titles available to play when roaming around the show floor.



      Perhaps one of the more interesting parts of the Xbox experience at E3 is the Xbox Design Lab nook that allowed attendees to get their hands on sample customized controllers, and even take time to create their own custom controller on the Design Lab website.

      Although Xbox owners have a lot to look forward to in 2016, many will already be thinking much further down the road at 2017, when Microsoft's next console, Project Scorpio will be released. But until then, enjoy our booth gallery.

      Is any JSON gurus around? I use JSON library for my website gallery pages and everything up to thumbnails #9 works great. The problem starts when I click on thumbnail #10 (4-th row the first image from the left). When I click on it, it supposed to open the block with bigger image and additional text but it does not show anything, same for the thumbnail #20. If user clicks on thumbnail #11, it will show big image and text that correspond to thumbnails #1. My guess is  - JavaScript doesn't read 2 digits and reads only the one from right only: "10 "reads like  "0"; "11", "21" reads like "1".
      Anyone can point me how to fix it in my code? I would appreciate any advice or help.
      For each page I have group of files  - php (http://iskpublishing.com/fine-art/gallery-still-life.php), which works as an html and 2 files with javaScript coding (http://iskpublishing.com/fine-art/js/still-life-function.js  http://iskpublishing.com/fine-art/json/still-life.json )
       
      Thank you.

      Even more images of Nokia's 'Moonraker' smartwatch show up
      by Vlad Dudau



      The competition in the smartwatch market may just be heating up, but one device that will never get to compete is Nokia’s canceled “Moonraker” watch.

      We first heard of the device last summer, when some leaked render shots showed what could have been if Microsoft had ever let this device come to market. But since then, images of the prototype smartwatch have continued to show up, including an entire gallery which we published a couple of days ago.

      But if that didn’t satisfy your needs, we’ve got even more images of the “Moonraker” watch today, seemingly following on from the previous showcase. As you can see in the images, which come from China, the device is shown in full detail, including some of its internals.

      There’s even a side by side comparison of the watch’s power port next to a power port of a supposed Lumia tablet. The device in question does seem to follow the Nokia/Lumia design aesthetic we’re used to, but whether this is the old 8-inch mini tablet from back in 2013 or the newer Mercury tablet from last year is hard to say.

      In either case, that’s pretty much a moot point at this time as Microsoft is focusing all of its wearable efforts on the Band 2, while today’s Nokia seems to have very little interest in consumer devices.

      Welcome to the Neowin photo gallery! Here you can post your pictures and discuss your photography techniques.

      Please be mindful of our members on dial-up and try to keep the dimensions of the pics and the size of the files to a respectable size for 1024 x 768 viewers. Please refrain from quoting images in your replies.

      I will also ask that you link to images on your own space, as much as possible.

      Try to put more details from your camera settings (EXIF) and also talk about what you have done with Photoshop (or similar).
      There are a lot of photographers here that like your editing skills and would like to learn more.

      The previous thread can be found here.

      Posting your photos is made easier thanks to a member contribution! Argote created a Flickr to IPB webapp, thanks! [direct link to app]
