A few from today:
I would like to join. You guys would laugh at me if you knew what I took them with.
Your red locust is quite pretty - I just took a very nice (well I think so) shot of a locust, but ours are very boring and brown here.
EDIT : Also - Like your cloudy shots with all the highlights in the clouds - I've tried a few times on those - but my low budget cameras just don't seem to have any luck with that - and no matter HOW hard I try with HDR I just never get any reasonable results.
I'd like to join
rocking a point and shoot, but that's what Lightroom and Photoshop are for. I will be buying a DSLR later this year, and I spend a lot of time taking random pictures when I'm out of walks.
Cam - hp Photosmart M417
Software - Adobe Lightroom, Abode Photoshop CS5 Extended, and Windows Live Photo Gallery
A selection of some of my pix - http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=208095&id=597565361&l=53b07b607c (includes some old crappy pix and a couple logos/wallpapers I made in PS)
Heh - I had an M407 years ago - a silly pice of junk by today's standards and no battery life at all , but I loved that camera - it was a very loyal tool
Had very very crisp clean images - virtually no ISO artifacts at all - and very good at macro.
The poor dog cant keep his eyes open, pretty sensitive to light so he always appears to be blinking when outside.
Here's a useful project for diffusing your flash when taking pics of your rigs. Should be easy to modify for on board flashes.
EDIT: Even better:
TheMailMan78 and beyond_amusia added. KingWookie, added your linked tutorial to the OP.
Really glad to see this thread taking off as of late. Thanks all for your pics, and keep them coming!
PS: Favorite pick above: the locust. Fucking cool!
Can I join the list too?
Camera: Canon IXUS 90IS (Still haven't convinced myself to buy a DSLR yet)
@BP, I demand moar photos from you! (Preferably pics of yourself )
That's a great site. Bookmarked.
I'd love to join. I have myself a Sony Alpha A300 DLSR and I just got a Canon Rebel 2000 35mm SLR (For Free).
Not the best Panorama, but it was reaaallly windy that morning (the sun just rose over the top of the mountains as i was taking the photos) so it has some blur spots, but I still like it.
This is the very first serious photo i ever took, with an old camera phone actually its on the coast in Blackpool. Very old photo.
This photo was the one that got me into taking photos i went away with family and nicked their camera, This one again is rather old i dont no why i put the coppy right thing on it i realy wish i hadn't now, ill have to try and dig out the original file somewhere.
there all downloaded from photobucket so thats why the compression and other things is shite i really wish i could find the originals

Danish, you forgot to add me...
Guys, I need some advice on which type of mem card to buy for the Olympus E-330.
Right now I'm using this exact card - it also fitted in my Canon Digital Ixus 400.
However 128MB only get some 8 RAW's to fit
I'm a bit wary since the E-330 is a 4 year old camera, I been checking on ebay but most cards don't even have the same shape as that of the 128MB card pictured above...
Prices locally are quite high. If I could be sure on what would be compatible I can buy for a reasonable price online.
Scroll up... scroll again... flip page.... oh look:
Scroll down from your post.
So I do need a CF card?
Because I did buy that Olympus...
So if I understand well I need a card which is labeled "CF" ie compact flash (for me the term CF rings 'crossfire' )
I'm a photo-n00b-extreme... guys, I don't want to get an 8 or 16GB memcard which doesn't fit.
So I should ignore any mem card labelled sD or xD
You need a Compact Flash card, but you need to figure out what the max size card your camera supports is.
Can't believe I forgot to add you. You're on there now.
You have 3 choices: Get a Compact Flash card, get a xD card (just about non existent now) or get a SD card with an adapter.
There are 2 types of Compact Flash cards out there, the type I and II. Your camera supports both. I can see you are confused about this.
Edit: Further research tells me that the newer CompactFlash cards use FAT file format, check whether your camera supports the FAT format?
took it just now on the way home from work. But i have a question, is it too high or to low an ISO value which causes the blue dots and the yellow dots (From street lights and windows)
ISO = Sensitivity to light. The higher the number, the more sensitive the sensor is to light, and the more artifacts you will get in your images.
i only had enough memory for one photo and the screen isn't big enough to see the quality of the image taken thanks ill no for next time
ISO is probably too high IMO because the picture is a bit "noisy", but on the other hand you seem to have a bit of handshake, causing the streetlights to look a bit like lines. Try using a tripod?
