    Hi everyone,

    I'm working on a 3d scene for a cover to a catologue. I need a nice hi-res sky picture for the background, but my digital camera can't capture high enough quality images. Would someone who has a digital camera with lots of megapixels be able to take a few sky pictures for me? I'm looking for a nice blue sky with some scattered white clouds. If you get a chance, could you email the hi-res pics to theonlywish@gmail.com ? I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    How big are you talking about? 4MP, 5MP, 8MP?

    I only have 4MP, but I know there are several folks around with 6MP D70's etc.

    My camera takes 10MP horizontal, 5MP vertical, so it interpolates very well to 10MP, How big are we talking?

    I only have a 2 MP camera, which isn't good enough. I don't necessarily need a certain number of megapixels, just the more the better. If either of you (or anyone else) wouldn't mind going outside and taking a few quick shots I'd really appreciate it.

    Was raining today, cloudy all day, I'll check my archieve's though.

    ------

    Well the only ones I have are ones I took with the white balance set to indoors, making them very cold. A quick levels adjustment helped a ton, but it's still not perfect. All are about 8 megs in tiff format. (since they are so big they have to go to my slow server :( sorry. fast one only has 10 meg limit)
