a shot of our communal garden during summer.


note: the shot is not as out-of-focus as it seems here. the file was so large that the only
way for it to not be any smaller was to save at a lower quality.


anyone know how to save bigger file to steves digicams forums without losing picture

quality?

Isn't that the case for every picture posted here? I usually resharpen the smaller image before posting.

As for this picture... "Messy messy messy." {To quote the magician from "Frosty the Snowman"}

The good picture would be more barn and less... Everything else

PS: I didn't know you had a Canon D Rebel

"had" is the operative here, dale.

it went to the ex-girlfriend (posted her pic the other day as "still love this girl )

about a month or two before we split.

i'm now shooting with an, ahem, Kodak easy share cx7525.

ii got her a pentax optio 750z for christmas and hopefully she'll let me borrow it for

awhile till i figure out what to get myself.

another question to ya'll.

every time i try to cange my avater, by the time i get to the max size allowed,

the shot is so small you can barely see it.

I just make a 200 X 200 pix square at 72dpi. Thenpaste a pic in and size it down to
fit. Then save. I use Corel PhotoPaint and when saving I can adjust the quality
slightly to "get in" the requirements. Maybe someone who uses PS can tell how they do it.
I'll need to know since I'm changing over to the complete Adobe / Macromedia package next week.

I don't mind the busy-ness upfront. It has that English garden feel to it and I think the barn gives it a focal point while the trees in the background balance the foreground. While the empty chair gives it the idea that you could rest/relax there, I wish it was wood and not plastic. As well, the green lines in the right foreground are a bit distracting. The diagonal convergence with the line of the trees helps , but i still think it might be something to clone out along with the sticks on the extreme right. Still like the overall feel.

Last time I posted my avatar I used intructions given by Dale, they worked. I think they are the same he has posted. Try them and see how it comes. That picture is cool.

i would like a little more depth of field here.. and maybe get in closer to one of the major flowers in the garden and use that as your foreground.. then let the garden spread from there to the barn.. and lose the green fencing wire as well..

lots of potential here, just needs a little tidying up..

happy new year!

I resize my pic in Photoshop CS2 to 200 wide or 200 high whichever makes it fit, but dont stretch it! Then do a "File", "Save for Web" and then you can adjust the quality until the file size (shown at the bottom left of the dialog) is lower than the stated limit - that worked for me.
