    If I quote your post, some sort of code shows briefly - but it's gone before I can tell what it is.

    To post pictures, do this:

    Vista, as in the OS? I don't think that's the problem here... I'm running Vista too, it doesn't affect my editing or uploading at all...

    Where are you hosting your pictures?

    I think you probably just copied the wrong thing for posting here. The HTML code won't work.

    Okay, I don't know why my photos are showing up. They are in my gallery. I am sorry. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I have published pictures in forums before (not this particular one)..

    Any suggestions?

    Right click on the picture. In the menu that comes up, there should be an option to copy the image address. Copy that.

    Paste it inside the 'IMG' tags.

    That should work.

    Finally!!! I think the problem was I had two http:// when I pasted the link in the box.

    Ah. Yeah - I think it automatically puts the 'http://' in there. Sometimes when you paste the link in it overwrites that, sometimes it doesn't...


    OK, onto the pictures...

    I think I like the first one more, it seems to have more contrast. They're both very similar though.

    Very subtle changes. I feel like I'm doing one of those "Find the 5 differences" kid puzzles.

    I like the tones in the shirt better on the first one, but I like the slight DOF in the second one helping the figure to be isolated from the trains. Compositionally, they both suffer from leading lines that spill off the right side. Repositioning the figure would help that. They're both a little contrasty with the black getting clipped in the under shadows of the trains.

    Thanks oldmacman, that black bothers me too and I agree with you about the tones in the shirt. In color the shirt was a light gray, perhaps I should have put him in a different shirt :) But I have to confess ignorance on what DOF is.
