Default And this is why...

... I love natural light. This Chihuly rose captured in Manual mode (EXR washed it out) with the HS-20. These are pretty much SOOC, I only did a small WB and cloned out the posing clamp.

I love it. Nice work.

As an aside, what photo-sharing website do you use or recommend? I've been on Flickr, but I haven't taken the time to experience what esle is available - I don't know what I'm missing.

Thanks very much.

I host my own gallery with my webhost. However, the one I recommend to folks most is Photobucket. They don't strip the EXIF data as so many do - including Flickr.

Doesn't Flickr have higher quality?

Also, it seems much more people use Flickr, Photobucket does not have as many photographers like Flickr's users.

I don't think Flickr's quality isn't any better or worse than the next guy. Photobucket is MUCH easier to use, more flexible, FREE, and doesn't strip the EXIF data. I prefer to use my webhost gallery but realize many folks don't have the knowledge to do that even though it's not very difficult.

Number of photogs means nothing except better marketing. It's like the old joke - "Eat crap. 10 million flies can't be wrong."

Thanks. EXIF data can be very helpful for us and for others. I will try Photobucket.

I think Flickr has been made more difficult to use in the past year or so.

This could turn into the typical "Ford vs Chevy" or "Nikon vs Canon". He asked, I told him.
