Thanks,
I'll have a look...
It takes me a while to get the hang of things.
I have Gmail and Verizon FIOS. One of those should have something.
Thanks again,
Fred

Fred
The Verizon FIOS personal web space looks like the way to go.

He has them set to private.  There are probably three options of Public, Private and Password required.

And, looks like IMG links instead of URL links if it was a click-and-go intended.

Hello all

 


At 800res

1200res

1200res

The three images appeared on my screen,  they were at 1024 res.  and were originals, so assumed all was OK
I think I may have had originals blocked.  Freed up originals so should now be ok

The other 2 still said "protected by owner". I copied the url and pasted into FF address bar and got the same result.

That's really strange, Terry.  I see three in both his orignal post and his re-post.

Have you tried a CTRL-F5 on that page to refresh it?

I can see them all now too, no F5 needed.
I'll check my other PC now.
Something odd is happening, Fred's having problems too.
Terry

Edit: I can see all on the desktop PC now but ctrl F5 was needed.
I'll check Fred's again now.

At last  Wink Perhaps we are back on track with the original question.
Jeff, thanks for sharing the photographs with us. Beautiful scenery, where was it, from the house/castle on the cliff it looked like France or Germany?
I see you included some figures in one of the scenes, in their canoes.
It was a very wet day here yesterday so we decided to visit the Compton Verney Art Gallery (Warwckshire UK) and see an exhibition of John Contable's portraits. That was his speciality before he did most of his landscapes.
However, there were a few landscapes there, one of which had tiny figures in it, walking away from the viewer. If you Google his landscape work, many of them also have figures in them as part of the landscape.
See attached for the one I saw - a rather poor lop-sided image - the real thing was much better!

Terry

Taken in the Dordogne a couple of years ago.

River scene I think taken from Beynac

The Castel is Chateau de Belcastel, I think that is on the road from Rocamadour to Sarlat.

When in such scenic areas I get 'taken away' and shoot with abandon, then have a hell of a job identifying the shots and spend hours on Google/images sorting out the locations.

These were taken with an Oly 8080 which had/has a very good lens, much better in my view that the Pentax 20d I now use.  The trouble with the Oly was the controls, I just could not manage them. But then leave the camera on 'P' and it did a very good job on it's own. It had a good exposure feature, you could take a number of spot meter readings of various parts of the scene and it calculated an average, a very good average.


Also they (the pics) are pre Qimage Studio - Silky Pix and processed to a very warm rendition.  The actual colours were not that far into the autumn.

I have many more from this holiday, the light was magnificent.  I don't know what it is about SW France, but the light is definitely different.

Back to original subject, I generally try and eliminate people, I think they make scenic landscapes look untidy, but on the other hand you have to make the best of the situation and if a person/animal - much prefer animal - enhances the shot, shoot it.
