Like the fall colors. I've never seen a traffic sign like the one on the left. What is it saying?

Thanks for sharing bobbert

For some reason, though I've never been to Toronto, I sort of imagined some streets (in Nov) would look like that.

It certainly has that 'HDR / rich colour' effect. Photo appears a bit soft though.

Appreciate you providing us an insight to an aspect of your 'home sweet home'.

Paul

Thanks Paul...

hmmm, it's tack sharp in the original. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong in resizing for the web? I resize to 800x600 pixels, and save as a jpg at 90% quality (10% compression) . The image here is 357k

Any suggestions?

You hit on it: 357K.

A site like Smugmug is not only great for unlimited on-line storage of your photos, with no size restrictions. but you don't have to downsize to exhibit your photos here on Steves-Digicams. Just open the photo in the size you want to post, click copy, and then paste to your post. Since the photo is still residing on Smugmug, it doesn't have any size restrictions from Steves-Digicams. Smugmug is easily the best $40 yearly that I spend on any photo accessories.

Thanks Steven - It's more complicated than that - I have the exact same file on pbase and it looks sharp...

Is there a way to LINK to this image rather than download it to this forum?

To link to a photo just put [img] and then the web address of the picture and end with [/img] (don't put spaces between the brackets and web address). I do it all the time, leaving most of my pictures on zenfolio rather than uploading them here.

P.S. Love the colors, a pretty street.

A nice pic - looks like a nice neighborhood.
When I check the image info w/ firefox, it tells me the size is 173k. When you uploaded it to Steve's, the forum software re-compressed it, as it was larger than the limit. This is what is making it look soft. As mentioned, you can link to the photo, which bypasses the size restrictions.

AhA!!! btw, by trial and error it has to be [img]url.JPG[/img]
