Default D600 image Safe haven

I had a chance to finally go out and take a few images this morning.

Here is safe haven:

Hi William/Glen,

Thanks for the comments. As for the name, no, it just struck me that the boat was in a safe haven-thus the name.

It's actually an area known as Mill Creek in Yarmouth, MA.
One of my favorite places to go and take photos. The area is one of those places that ever changing.

I was curious because that pier/dock was being held in place by some rope after
obviously being torn away from the pylons at some earlier time...

The pier/wall is secured to the pilings with rusted iron rods. It's a unique structure that is unlike anything else I've ever seen, here on Cape Cod.

Ah, I thought they were red ropes...

Very strange indeed...!

Fantastic, love it.

The HDR is very well done and I like the smooth colors and mod of the picture.

Thank you for posting.

Nice image.

But, one thing I'd keep in mind is how others are able to view it.

For example, I'm using a 1680x1050 display right this minute, and that image (1280x711 pixels) "barely" fits on the screen, requiring me to scroll a bit to the left to see the entire image (because of some space taken by the forum info, browser toolbars, operating system panels, etc).

Keep in mind that there are still many forum members using 1024x768 displays; and even the *most* popular display resolution today is only 1366x768 (up from not long ago, where the most popular display resolution was still 1024x768).

http://www.netmarketshare.com/report...&qptimeframe=Y

We had a suggested maximum resolution of 640x480 for a number of years, and finally revised it to a suggested maximum resolution of 1024x768 a while back (which is still too large for many displays to be able to see the entire image without scrolling).

But, guidelines for specific forums have even lower resolutions suggested.

For example, a max resolution if 800x600 is still suggested in the guidelines for some forums, like this one:

Photo Critiques Guidelines - PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

A longest dimension of 800 pixels is also suggested in other forums like this one:

Guidelines for the BiWeekly Shootout Forum-Updated 4/11/10

Resolution limits is not something we tend to enforce (unless someone is posting even higher resolution images than you posted).

But, I'd still take into consideration what others with lower resolution monitors are going to see.

If you've got a higher resolution 1080p display (for example, a display with 1920x1080 resolution) an image as large as you posted can work out, so you can see the entire image without scrolling.

But, the problem is that most forum members have displays that are lower resolutions (with the browser menus and toolbars, operating system panels, etc., taking up some of the available display space, meaning that an image as large as you posted is *not* going to fit on the displays the vast majority of users have right now, unless they scroll back and forth to see only portions of it.

So, if you want more viewers to enjoy an image without needing to scroll up and down or right to left to see only part of it; I'd suggest downsizing images a bit more for posting here. Then, just post a link to a larger image so that users with higher resolution displays can see more detail if desired.

Hi Jim, thanks for the reminder. I keep forgetting that not everyone uses a screen as large as mine.

Will do as you suggest.
