    That technique works fine, as viewers can click on the thumbnail to see a larger version. If you want to post larger images directly, the image has to be referred, regardless of the size. (BTW, the largest recommended size is 900 pixels on the long side. The forum software actually used to resize anything larger to that convention, but I've noticed much larger images have been posted. I typically try to stay around 800 pixels on the long side.)

    From Flickr, for example here's what I do:

    Open the image you want to post, and then from Actions, choose: View All Sizes.

    Then choose the size you want to post (the GetDPI forum is optimized for 900 pixel on the long side, so stay under that if you can). Then when the size you want is open, Right Click on that Image, and choose Copy Image Address.

    With that copied, you can post the image address on the GetDPI forum using the little yellow box above the reply window.

    Hope this explanation makes sense, and is of some use to you.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    and some more... lovin the D3X, i wonder if anyone can guess which images are D2Xs and which are D3x.

    very good eye lloyd, actually it was for Autocar middle east magazine and they had no budget for the studio, so i took it out into a dessert road with no ambient lights and went wild with the torch. This has saved some of my clients a lot of cash but still getting something that could pass for the studio. The BMW and GTR are done with the light painting and i also have a little aston martin on its way. will post it next.

    I hate cheap clients but everyone has a budget i suppose.

    I think i went a little over the top with the random selections.lol......

    Very happy that they are going down well.

    I'm a little frustrated that the image quality is dropping when i upload though. The D3x images are looking quite low res.

    Hi there,

    Been in Dubai for 4 years but occasionally take assignments outside of the region. Dubai is a difficult place sometimes. Wish i could go traveling more or at least back to Scotland for a bit.

    Lloyd, Steve, Tim and Rayyan: Thank you for your kind words and comments!

    BTW: Rayyan, I'm fairly sure, you know that view from your journeys "here and there and everywhere" , and the trip wasn't arduous all-over, some fun as well, I may reassure you of that!

    More magic shots. I really like that "3 minute" portrait of Kevin Spacey. (One of my favorite actors, btw. The Usual Suspects still haunts me. )

    As for the resizing, resolution issues. Have you clicked on your thumbnails? When you do, if you click again on the larger version that opens you'll see that you can click on it yet again and a much larger version opens. I've done so with a number of your images, and they look really good that way. It issue in general is one reason why many of us prefer to post the larger version (still web resolution, but not as thumbnails). That way the images appear as we wish them to appear. BTW, the forum does add a little sharpening, so you may have to test a bit to find the right mix for your taste.

    Again, glad you decided to join us. Looking forward to more.

    Steve: Mahalo, Duke Stevahanamoku!
    Corlan: Thank you!
    Rayyan: Thanks. Actually she didn't go into any of those shops. She was with me having a milkshake. That's the life!
    Rayyan: Very cool photo! Excellent! Nice skin tone and color.
    Pete: These dance photos of yours are stunning! The body positions you capture here make an elegant composition.
    Jorgen: Great framing. Beautiful IQ.
    Rayyan: Superb image! The pp really suits. (insert salute here)
    Tim: Shhh...
    Jorgen: "Sweet Order" is a great capture. She's unnervingly peppy appearing.
    Hermann: Great images! Very good focus. Although, I think the Audi Q7 was a designer's mistake. IMHO.
    Tim: N...ice!
    Hermann: Beautiful photos and a beautiful place to cross country ski.
    bahr: Those are great images! All of them! Thanks for posting. Looking forward to more. (insert thumbsup here)
    Rayyan: Every image is a pleasant surprise! The asymmetrical balance in this photo's brilliant. I think the strong lines created by his look and the rail are offset by his mass and the column. (insert thumbsup here)
    Lloyd: Perfect shot!!! (insert salute here)

    Cheers, Matt

    Matt, like you said before. Not my kind of beach either. The last time I was there they had the Hilton there. The Rainbow Towers. I don't know if it is still there.

    But it was not so crowded. I like quiet. Hush. The rustle of the coconot leaves, hear the waves. Not kids screaming!!

    I hope you had a good time!!

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Remember, me and the model in the hotel? I posted a photo here previously.

    Well it would appear, that models can't keep away from me. Or I away from them.

    I do not particularly like dolled up girls ( gender neutral ). I avoid them, but..

    There I am waiting for Aria to take me back to the hotel. I have had a full day of meeting and talking to people in the market place. 50mm at the ready!

    Something catches my eye, to my right. I step back. Peer inside. I am tired.
    Looked interesting though!

    I walk in. 50mm at the ready. Dirty Harry..make my day, I think.

    I look at the..no not the model. She is run of the mill, she can wait.

    I am a frontal man myself. For anything. ' Kiss You ' she was shouting!!

    I want to see what I should be kissing ( or whatever!! ).

    I move forward. Sorry sir, this is private. What is? This shoot.

    I just want to Kiss, says I. The Model? says the boom man. No.
    He has a grin. Who then? he asks in anticipation.

    The girl..the ' Kiss You ' girl of course. Not the model. Too much lipstick, says I.

    The model is hot. ( temperature and humidity ). Wipe, powder. Her grin is gone. She stares at me. Then at someone behind me.

    Please leave now, sir. Bad breadth, I smell from behind me. Bouncer, Ugly, BBIIGG!

    Stupid I am, Dumb No.

    What about the ' Kiss You '. A smile, her eyes meet mine. Did I read them say
    Maybe, later?

    Now, please. The Ugly.

    The Good, Bad and the Ugly. The Ugly wins. I leave. But I shall return!

    I promise to myself. I shall do a model here. Me and her. Alone. Or I shall make a Model. Promise.

    I kept that promise. I shall tell the story some other time. What a Model, I made.


    I returned. Did a ' shoot '. She has her first audition. I might return to Bali.

    Matt: Though for sure not my place for a holiday, you perfectly captured the atmosphere of the beach, can smell the suntan lotion. And the last one I really do like!

    +1, +1, +1. The dangers endured for art and pleasure, eh? Grateful you braved it... and shared it.

    Man, I could sure use some beach weather right now. Torrential rain yesterday, then woke up to a foot of snow this morning. Just spent 25 minutes unburying Mimi's car so she could get to a workout at the gym!

    BTW, love the rim light in that second shot.

    Very happy that they are going down well.

    I'm a little frustrated that the image quality is dropping when i upload though. The D3x images are looking quite low res.
    I know the feeling. Can't explain why, probably some kind of compression in the forum engine software... they look terrific nevertheless.

    Beside the Dubaļ skyline, really like the Accord shot - not sure what level of processing is involved, but the result's absolutely top notch.



    Superb portrait, totally different style... a classic.



    Eventually, the one below might be my favorite.


    (oh, nice bike, too, and good photo btw)

    Welcome!

    Excellent action shot!

    Not for this specific photo, but isn't the 85mm a bit short for this kind of session on FF?

    I was about to inquire what the guy had lost in the first photo here , but hey.

    Love the one quoted just above, Matt. Both modern and bringing up memories, when we were young and unmindful, crispy sand under the feet, gentle sun on our shoulders.


    (note: had a good laugh... "Not a very big ocean"...)

    +4. What a brave, dauntless man you are, Rayyan.
    Hope you got your kiss (and i don't mean from the big guy)

    Looking at the bright side, well at least you saved the gym fee for yourself.

    Btw, what did Mimi say when you mentionned it'd be the perfect pre training session if she did the digging herself? (sure you did)

    The funny part, Corlan, is that I started while she was getting ready to leave, and within just a couple of minutes she appeared and started to help. I sent her back in the house to get ready. She was meeting a friend (a woman who's just getting started in triathlon, who she's helping with her swimming), and would have been late had she helped with the digging first. I usually have to run out quickly to beat her to the job!

    Thanks Corlan. As for the 85 on FF. I was under the basket, so it worked well.

    I have a friend here who covers the Utah Jazz for AP. He uses Canon, and shoots with two cameras, one mounted with a 300/2.8 for shots when they are at the far end of the court, and the other mounted with an 85/1.2 for the near court. He's using the 1DsMKIV, so he has a cropped sensor, but he shoots from a little to one side of the basket, so he gets about the same perspective as I had in close and centered.

    I thought it worked well for me. I tried with the 70-200, but found I preferred using the prime. Less to think about, and that new "G" lens focuses in a heartbeat, which was a big plus.

    Yeah, she's like that -was just kidding. Though you do put a lot of heart in saving your own gym fee

    Well, I wish I was saving it. We pay monthly, and have been members at our gym for years. Same cost whether I go or not. Truth is, I typically go with her on Tuesday mornings. I'm having a little diagnostic procedure at the hospital this morning... she's returning home to take me... so a workout this morning was contraindicated.
