At 200mm



This zoom is really fun. I haven't had any zoom since I got my Nikon. Just like with any lens, there are certain shots you just can't get without a certain amount of zoom/DoF compression. I'm liking it. Not to mention this lens seems to render color and sharpness extremely well.





Also, I'm not sure if you've been on Google Earth lately, but wherever you go on there, you'll find submitted pictures of locations. So I've been putting some shots from Bonnaroo up there hoping to get them on Google Earth...

The film-like processing on them is really enjoyable to me. I'm only uploading them at 300x500 because Panoramio doesn't seem to have any "protection" or even a good way to get in contact with the photographer, thus I only put up the small size and watermarked them. Anywho...

I like that watermarking! Looks good. However, don't you think the ones in the middle of the picture are less likely to get stolen?

Also, I'm putting that drainage picture on my desktop. Put it on my tab. :*

tab noted :) (i took those yesterday over by mac auth.)

yeah a watermark in the middle would definitely be more of a deterrent but then you start obstructing the image and in my opinion it really distracts from the photo and i'm unable to get a feel for how much i like it. thus the compromise of only uploading it as small as possible.

Thanks for the info, Eduardo! I guess my thought was that it'd nice if, rather than just a member/photo page, there was a page with contact info about said member (similar to Flickr but not necessarily to the same customizable extent). Thanks again.
