    red and black and white :)

    #1 is cool in an odd way because the scene ends up looking really flat. looks like a toy soldier!... especially with that unusually large light fixture - what's up with that?

    The Eyes Have It - B&W

    natural? love the shot. the grain really works for it, like the kid's cut out of stone.

    coronado bridge (large-ish image)

    i stitched it quickly last night, one of the joints is visible at the third column from the left! it was gloomy when i took the photo. there's a color version, but it's not so different. glad that part of the year is over with.

    Re: New Rules for Critique

    totally agree with the first paragraph. but what if the submitter wants feedback, but not a "specific level" of feedback, as you say? couldn't they post in the critique area without submitting the extra info? This would allow for more unexpected critiques. If the photo has a problem with...

    Does anyone use AutoCAD for work?

    yep. autocad skills are definitely marketable. bentley microstation is another similar program which is gaining ground in the industry.

    considering graduating from the "consumer"-grade camera league

    i'm looking for any suggestions on a new camera. i should start off by saying that i'm digital now and plan on staying that way :P maybe i'll go film when i have enough $$ to keep my own darkroom. what i've got now is a Minolta Dimage Z1, which i'm quite happy with, but i think i'm...

    how large can I print

    remember to consider how the print will be used also. 300dpi is the quality you need for things that will be viewed very closely, like books and magazines. if the print is always going to be viewed from further away, you can get away with much less. ^---$0.02 :)

    Photographers face more vicitimisation in London

    right on mitica, that's just the document (the US one) i was thinking of. ;) i've been wondering for some time, since that document is published by a private lawyer, and in Oregon (a place i'm not familiar with), is there any refute to its validity? I think I would feel more secure if it were...

    hello! also, shipments to turkey??

    hello! i used to be here all the time a year ago, but i've been busy. too busy to take photos, even (at the rate I used to). Maybe i'm back... ;) gotta say, i'm back on business. I'll get to the point: Does anyone know how to ship stuff from Albany, NY to Istanbul, Turkey? I've got a...

    ah, fundamentals. let's have a pow-wow =)

    to clarify, i said this, but with the modifying clause that people conceive of the changes they make, and animals don't. i think this is a main difference we have in our arguments. i don't care so much about the history of creative development over generations of evolution. i'm concerned with...

    ah, fundamentals. let's have a pow-wow =)

    i still don't see why you think i'm expressing a subjective view of humans. could you give me an example? i believe that humans aren't merely executing their program because i want it to be true. i want humanity to be autonomous, able to act separately from the environment (but also still...

    ah, fundamentals. let's have a pow-wow =)

    hertz, i disagree with everything you just said :spank: ^---but yeah, i'm right there too :wink: i'll pick one piece and go with it. yes, animals can make things that affect their surroundings, but i don't think they consciously realize that they're changing the world. they're just...

    ah, fundamentals. let's have a pow-wow =)

    sorry to be blunt, but i think your argument is the one that doesn't stand up. what wasps' perception of their hives is would make for an interesting discussion; at the moment, i wouldn't guess they understand it as different from anything else in the world. picasso calling monkeys artists...
