We all are human beings. We all can be tired. We all are not able to be always right. But we all can speak to each other politely and constructively trying to explain what we think and what we want. Respecting each other. And DT, on my opinion, is very suitable place to be human beings.
Are you agree, colleagues? You aren't?! But you have to...
Lately I uploaded three images. Here they are:
All the three were rejected. Surely, I was upset. But I wrote to support. Trying to explain that reasons of rejection seemed to be wrong for me. Because (1) ... (2) ... and (3) ... Putting arguments in front of them. I finished with polite request to re-consider images. As a result, they have been moved from 'Refused files' to 'On line files'...
It happens to me from time to time. I take shots and put images to my hard disk to process later, but then I have no time for a week or so. Or something attracts my attention and I took new shots and completely go mad on them and so, old ones stay forgotten.
And so, I decided to start March with careful inspecting my HD instead of taking new photos. And it turns out to be a good idea since I found couple of dozens photos quite suitable to be uploaded on DT. And so, I processed them and uploaded and most of them have been just approved.
I would like to say that it makes sense to inspect your HD from time to time. Some interesting photos may be kept there forgotten.
Good point and I have also found that as my post processing skills have improved, new packages obtained etc that pictures that may have had no potential before can now be either altered or improved to make them saleable. So it's certailny worth going back through your HD and see whats' hiding :-)
Noctilucent (mesospheric) clouds represent especial kind of athmospheric phenomena. In contrast to 'normal' clouds they are located in upper atmosphere (mesosphere) at altitudes about 80 kilometers, which is almost space. Noctilucent clouds can be visible in a deep twilight in the summer months at latitudes between 50° and 70° north and south. But it's extremely rare phenomenon and even at these latitudes they appear 2-3 times per summer only (in the best case). Being amateur astronomer for 35 years and ever checking sky with a great attention, I saw mesospheric clouds only several times for the whole my life.
And the most beautiful case took place at midnight between June 18 and 19, 2010. I noticed clouds at 11 p.m. out of my window. It was just fantastic show! Very tender silver-like net (that'...
I always dremt to take photograpy of a firework. And finally I managed to do this. Unfortunately, fireworks are very short events and it is not possible to change spot adjusting for the best view. One does not know EXACTLY where it will happen. Noway to set composition before it starts...
For my first firework session on March 6th 2011 (it was dedicated to the beginning of orthodoxal Lent) I choosen the spot at the Red Square in Moscow with Saint Basil's Cathedral that served as an excellent foreground.
My idea was to use exposure time which would be long enough to catch essential part of firework splashes. I wanted to catch not a short moment but development of splashes.
Here are settings: (1) tripod, (2) ISO100 (to supress noise), (3) t=2sec, (4) f/7.1. I had to choose the last parameter...
Really beautiful firework pictures!! May I know how to shoot fireworks without smoke? Because in my experience, there is always black smoke surrounding the fireworks,which really ruins the pretty image.
So, finally I have made cardboard lightbox with walls and "ceiling" of tracing paper. Also I bought 3 cheep lamps and 3 x 6450K bulbs. Toytal price for all the equipment is $30. And here are my first lightbox images accepted:
