    Given the thread name and the middle-of-the-night post time, it wasn't what I expected! Nice capture!

    Guess The Histrogram!

    Great post pgriz. Don't have a clue how to read these (time I learned). I'm going with #2. With help from google (first time ever looking it up)...plenty of blue and green in h-gram #2...although neither are overly bright so it follows the h-gram is leaning left (as in #2...the largest of the...

    C & C please

    Seems like #1 needs more contrast. I like the idea. #3 is interesting but needs a smaller "place-mat" to avoid getting chopped on the edges. Sorry, #2 and #4 don't work for me. My $0.02.

    jpg, raw, or raw+ jpg

    Originally shot only JPEG...then did both for a short only RAW. All my shots come into LR anyway (or Elements before LR) so it was a no-brainer to gain added editing functionality from RAW at the at the (inexpensive) cost of some storage space.

    Would you recommend Light Room?

    2X to all that's been said re LR. It also smoothly handles uplink to flickr, Photobucket, etc. as well as provides a printing and web upload functionality. I have both LR and PS and use PS only for heavy lifting. Try the demo to see if it's right for you.

    I can see clearly now...

    I think generally that's true. IMO PCs tend to be a better match for those folks who think about their machines as a group of parts, each of which can be replaced/improved/whatever. Seem that Macs serve up more of a complete "drive it and don't think about it" solution. The "drive it"...

    I can see clearly now...

    ...probably true. But, overall I've not found nor heard of any "magic bullet" which makes one better than the other over the long term. A computing machine is a computing machine. I enjoy listening to the this-is-better-than-that discussion every time it comes up (this thread is far from...

    Yeah, I bet a nice, new PC next to the old one would have produced the same excitement. New is always so much fun!

    This is how I feel today.

    Sorry to report her coughing is heading into it's second week. Hope yours won't go that long. She's found extra strenth Mucinex does a good job (mostly). The good news is that I don't seem to be getting it....yet.

    This is how I feel today.

    Hope you don't have what my wife fever, but she's been coughing up her lungs for about a week now. (She also is a heart patient.) Think she caught it at work, but who knows? Get yourself better real soon. Agreed...a nice image. It captures the feeling.

    Great thread...sorry I'm late to the memories! CP/M...Z80's..."Trash-80s" (TRS-80s)....8 inch floppies....great stuff (back then)! I discovered an 8" floppy disk cleaning old stuff the other day...was like a frisbee! And, if I recall, it held a whopping 250Kb! It was a world which measured...

    opinions please - would you do this wedding?

    I wasn't asked ahead of time, but I was at a destination wedding last spring (in Mexico)...took the camera to get memories for me (the bride & parents are close family friends). Then I learned that the "package deal" purchased by the bride & groom included only 36 prints from the local "wedding...

    which editing program should i use?

    To the OP: I've used Elements (older version), Lightroom and Photoshop. (I legally own them all.) I've found the best for me is LR. It does 90% of my PP and has given me a leg up in climbing the PS learning curve. My $0.02.

    Please Help!!! My Photos have disappeared!!!

    Glad to provide insight. Even having a background in computer stuff, I still marvel at the technology in my hand every time I frame up a shot. Of course, I still can't stellar images out of the thing! ;)
