He'd, um, die, I'm pretty certain. A year or two ago when kids were on an overnight field trip at my school, one kid hiked with a group up the bluff at Big Bend National Park and fell off and died. Weird thing, though, he left his hat and his backpack on the bluff. So nobody knows if he committed suicide or just slipped. Needless to say, we don't taje onvernight field trips anymore.

This tpoic has alot of potential. Itd be cool to see some of people's favorite photos that they have taken. And since this place is a film making forum, im sure you all have quite a few.

My new wife and I were on our honeymoon and Halloween came early. We just got a new roll of our honeymoon film developed and in them was this picture. I had not heard of any beach guarding ghosts before, but I guess she was just in for a visit like anyone else. Anyhow, if you're ever in Monterey, CA, say hello to the beach ghost for us...

I'm an amateur photographer with my Canon Digital Rebel, here are some of my photos on an outdated site that I intent to replace soon.

If there are any photos you like, feel free to use as wallpaper/desktop images, but if a friend asks for em, point them my way instead of sending them the file, please. Thanks.

(Do anything you like to em too, just give credit)

Okay okay okay. That wasn't a real photo. sad

THIS is, without question, the greatest single image that has ever happened to the earth. It has made me laugh soooo many times... it's... it's incredible. This is the work of some hardworking, VERY creative, cherub. Laugh away.

Signing off,

Tis one of my fav's.
I didn't take it. I'm the dude suspended in teh air.


My actual favorite photograph. Of the weird church on its own island in the middle of the sea. It's crazy. Apparently some women placed a curse on the church after the first King was buried in its grounds. All land around the church has been erroded but the church still stands tall.

Ok, so there's a little bit of photoshoppery that's taken place here, but I still like this -


(click to enlarge)

It's me holding my brother's cat, when I was on holiday in France. She was so cute smile

And again from the same trip to France, this is the Notre Dame cathedral of Dijon. Taken on a cheap Fuji Finepix, digital ND filter and contrast mask added.


(click to enlarge)

Apologies for the awful compression - I uploaded those when I was on 56k! Also, Pooky's stuff is great, and I should be even better when he gets a decent camera razz

Cheers,
Arktic.

Nah, there's no "strange" reason. 5gigs, my webhost, is finishing off the last tasks of a recent servermove, and thusly, sites are up and down right now. I'm sure it'll come back.

...LONG LIVE .PNG's!!!

Very good. Those are some really sweet pictures! Especially the one on the (swing?) carousel. Did you use the same Canon Powershoot?

Thanks, and yeah it's Canon Powershot A95.

For the carousel swing thing, I just put it on my lap and took a bunch of different pictures with different exposures.

My favorite photo I have ever taken is this one. I am not much of a photographer, don't really try. I use a Canon Powershot S-50 and iPhoto for minor grading. Now I would be using PS, but uh, my HD is gone. Luckily I uploaded this to the net before the failure. Whew.
