re: "Picture of the week" submission thread

Thanks guys.. keep 'em coming. If we get enough submissions perhaps we'll change the picture up more often.

A request: Please pre-edit your pictures for things like crooked horizons. Most photo viewing programs allow you to tilt/straighten things out (In Iphoto it's under 'crop') Thx.

re: "Picture of the week" submission thread

So not to spam this thread but, I do have a few others I would like to throw up for consideration. Do we want to put a limit on the number of pics people can submit to keep the administration of this easier and also so no one member dominates?

What if the horizon is intentionally crooked as part of your artistic expression?

re: "Picture of the week" submission thread

I enjoy sailing photos, this should be fun. I've got a zillion(like many people). There are a few that I especially like.

I took this shot off Isle of Skye off Scotland a few years ago.

cb.. we had an issue earlier this week with a photo link that did not fit the format [IMG] filename.jpg[/IMG] I don't think the length of the file name matters but there can't be characters after the jpg designation or the program ignores the post. (so I'm told) Click edit on your post above and you'll see what I mean. Can you rename it?

As far as limiting numbers, I hear you. I guess it's up to us as we select pics to try to keep it 'fair'. As I mentioned earlier, if there are plenty maybe we switch it up each day (when we find time and/or remember )

Faster, I had to use Shutterfly as I was at work and our proxy blocks Photobucket. Here is a link from Photobucket.



I will just use Photbucket from now on. Thanks!

Ok... Here are some photos during one of my business trips to Seal Beach. Have others too with some nice surfing photos though not sail related... but at least water related.

GG56.. Thanks... but please read the earlier posts about the format of the picture.. the 'thumbnail' attachments won't work for us.. we need a pastable img code link in jpg format such as that provided by Photobucket or Flickr.
