Default Goodbye Veterans Stadium

There's more to the sequence but just visit the site to see them all. I don't want to overload the load time of this thread...

Great sequence but that watermark really detracts. If you feel you must do something more than the copyright line at the bottom of the photo, you might consider electronic watermarks. This process puts an identifying code in the image file that is not visible in the image but can be detected by software. Paint Shop Pro is capable of this and I assume Photoshop has the capability, also.

Yes, I agree. Unfortunately image theft is so common that I no longer subscribe to the idea of posting marketable images without them.

The problem with watermarks like that is that someone (like me) could take them out in about 3 minutes flat in photoshop. Would you like me to demonstrate?

No need Jaro... I could do it too. But the fact that you would have to do it and the fact that I only saved them in 1024x768x8 at 72dpi really does limit their useability also the more common snatch and grabbers are usually too lazy to even take the three minutes.

In the end I still manage to share the image and limit the desirability to some degree. You could do all sorts of tricks to make it palatable but thats still effort that most n00bs won't have. 8)

MichaelE...I might recommend 600X400 @72dpi .... that way one could print it out, but only at 2in X 1.5 in ... any more than that and the quality suffers dreadfully Yet still looks good on most monitors.

Besides the watermark- that's a very dramatic capture!

Yes, other than that it is quite an incredible sequence. I bet it was impressive in real life.

It's funny that you mention the actual event... In retrospect I think I lost the moment in all of the 'panic' that comes from trying to make sure all of the shooting elements were in place. I was operating the 10D and the DRebel at the same time and I had the Sony MIniDV going on another tripod. I was listening to the TV cues as they pushed the plunger down.

I heard the beginnings of the explosions as the sequences started. They sounded like very muffled impacts similar to when we were pile driving support piles here. Very methodical in tempo... About every 1.5 seconds you'd hear another go off.

Then all of the sudded you saw the sequence begin and it was literally timed like a stadium crowd wave... You saw the first segment of the wall begin to crumble inward and the segments to the left of it just followed politely along.

It's a sad day for many here with memories of that place. I'm one of them. Although I've only known the Vet for six years and only frequented it twice I could certainly 'feel' the memories of the place.

The new stadiums speak of new beginnings and times to come but the memories I hope I've managed to do justice to will live on and perhaps through photos like these and recallings of others will find a new home in younger hearts.
