If this belongs in another forum, feel free to move it, gentle Mods. But I figured iPhoto=Digital Hub.

Anyway, this can be a place to post pics you've taken of whatever, vacation, Pretentious art shots, ugly co-workers.

Whatever strikes your fancy.

This was taken last May from the front of my cottage, with iPhoto's sepia effect.

Great pictures, guys. Here's my contribution:

Not a spectactular shot, but they recently tore the building down to make way for a parking garage and I miss it. A lot of history lost.

Some of my first pics with my d rebel.



I have no idea what happened with this shot but I really like the look of it. I think my shutter was set to close after about 20 seconds and I got tired of holding it so I started walking.




My first attempts at night-time photography. High speed bikes. Very cool but hard to shoot.

Sure, grab it here:

It's really, um, orange. These are all wild poppies in a lot that will soon be a park, closeby my house. They came through and cut down all the grass at one point, but carefully trimmed around the poppies. Nice.

it is very orange, but it is perfect for the rainy days exactly because of that.

I like this thread



Taken on my recent jaunt over to Australia. QGR stands for Queensland Great Railway, and it was taken on a train journey up to the Atherton Tablelands. Taken on 35mm, and scanned



Bit of still life. Taken in Australia again, on my uncle's land. 35mm, scanned, and then the leaves left in colour, whilst the log/background B&W'd in Photoshop

I had no idea that scientists had modified mushrooms so that they grow ears (I'm assuming to transplant to people that have suffered ghastly ear injuries or just aren't happy with their current ears). I also had no idea that they had been released into the wild to grow hither and thither.



Seriously, any mushroomologists know what the hell this things is and why it has an ear.

low-fi (and others)

Those are some great shots! How did you do the background in black and white in PS? Did you do some massive lassoing or is there some function in PS that I'm missing?

It's most likely been done with quick mask mode. You make a selection, than enter quick mask mode with one of the buttons at the bottom of the main tool palette. I don't have Photoshop installed on this computer yet, otherwise I'd hit you up with a screenshot or two.
Personally, I'm a huge fan of quick mask mode.

Come waste your time with me

Thanks very much torifile!

I am most certainly not a photoshop expert, so what I did was probably the most inefficient way of doing it! But I achieved this by using bezier curves to get the outline of the leaves, then pulled them each out individually into a separate layer (so I can change the colour of the leaves on a leaf by leaf basis). At that point, I black and whited the background, and just fiddled with the colours in order to get the right balance.

The QGR shot was hardly touched in photoshop - just removed some of the dust and scratches from the scanning process.
