    Even at the risk of coming off like a complete pompous jerk, I am going to propose something. Once upon a time, in a land far far away, I served in the military. They had a motto for OJT (on the job training)... See one, Do one, Teach one...


    In the spirit of that philosophy while I was out shooting my one picture of the day, I took along my P&S digital. She here is what I propose. First of all I'm going to wave the you edit me but I edit you rule. (LoL) I would like to see everyone edit this untouched file. Crop it change anything you want any way you want. I will post my version sometime but you do yours based on one of the following criteria....

    1. A shot to hang on the wall...
    2. A shot for a publication of some kind.
    3. A shot for my mother's wall...

    shoot it for any of the above, just don't do it for fun. The point is to learn from others. Now granted it would be a lot more fun for most of the digital people, if it were a better quality digital file, but alas I don't own a quality digital camera. So there you go. If you have the (shall we say) fortitude to join in...

    the idea is to just treat it as well as you can thats all ... I like what you did by the way.
    I like the crop on 2 better too much blank parking lot in the first on I think. Just my opinion but I like that you went black and white and dark... I would never have thought of that.

    I guess most like the route of making the photo look like an old one. I probably went a bit overboard... but I could see this in some publication especially one that tells a story...

    Hi again Mysteryscribe.
    I don't know why you couldn't open it, it opens OK on my Mac. I do like your idea though...of posting an image, no matter how bland and allowing us digital freaks to play with it. Thanks for the excercise. Philip.

    On your post as it shows up on mine it says photo bucket no longer has tthe image.... I have no idea what that means.

    And I wish I had a mac even thought I do very little digital I am finding out that scanning even simple black and white negs do differently on different os... I have been scanning on win 98 and today i scanned the same negative on xp and it looks so much different.

    Anyway Im sorry I'm sure you did a great job on it... Buy the way I'm glad people are finding the thread. I hope it keeps going/.

    It might mean that he switched the photo to a different album catagory after he gave us the link, or somehow it just got deleted in his photobucket archive!

    Hi MysteryScribe, I'm a dill [Aussie expression] I didn't realise if I delete the image from my Photobucket Album, you can't access it. I have put it back in. Try now, if any problems, I will repost.
    Philip.
