It's a scrum. It's really the only time they give 100% of their attention.

'scrum' ...dunno why but i hear that word and wrinkle my nose

It sounds profane (or possibly an unsightly part of the male anatomy).

how is the favorite tag determined?

Ladybadtiming PRO 11 years ago
Яick Harris PRO 11 years ago
@glory: it counts all the tags attached to my favorites. Those tags that appear more frequently are shown in a larger font. Something like this:

flickr.com/photos/tags/
or
del.icio.us/tag/

The link searches my favorites for that tag. I have way too much time on my hands.

Playground 1

Playground
Went out and snapped some pictures at lunch. Very cold day today. Yesterday there was an inch of ice encasing my van. Brrrr.
The coldest winters I have ever experienced were in Atlantic Canada. A pervasive, deep chill made you want to lay down and sleep for the remainder of the winter. It was a paradise in the spring, summer and fall.

i love pugs!. there used to be one that visited my parent's house when i was younger. we never figured out who owner her, she would just appear in our window, looking for some attention. she used to try and eat my dog's food, but i don't think the pug was used to eating hard food because the bits would always fall through her teeth.

Hi!
I`m very impressed by your photos (Some "Vase", "Field Phallus" and other)!!! Superior and smoth colors! Similar color happens only at a film! What programm do you use for creation such colors and saturation?

Thank you in advance,
Greetings from Ukraine!!!

so sorry to hear about your nuts. tsk
Яick Harris PRO 11 years ago
Thanks Oleg -- I saturate my images using photoshop. I also photomatix to combine multiple images (HDR).

I had my my camera set to Vivid for the field picture. Otherwise there was no extra saturation added.

The Vase shot was a combination of three exposures. I combined three images in Photomatix (www.hdrsoft.com). Each image had different exposure values (-1 0 +1). I brought the combined images into photoshop, altered the saturation. And changed the curves (altering the lightest areas and the darkest areas). The colors were achieved using Photomatix.

Thanks for the kind words.

mbauhs PRO 11 years ago
You've got some amazing photos here. The colors are fantastic!! What are you doing to those photos in post processing? HDR? Saturation?
Яick Harris PRO 11 years ago
Thank you. I tend to (over?) use the vivid setting on my camera. I use HDR in a limited sense (Queen Clara and my Playground shots are HDR). I try to avoid that over-saturated unreal look that is associated with HDR.

The Vase shot was made up of two exposures. 0 and -1 exposure values. I blended the darker exposure (I think I multiplied the layer in Photoshop). I lowered the opacity to retain the saturated colours and to maintain the details.

I usually hike the Saturation in PS from +5 to +15 and lower the Hue a little (ctl-U).

thanks

Canada Since Confederation

Public LIbrary

Went to the library with my son tonight. He's researching a speech. Among other things I saw a CD by Gino Vannelli, the godfather of Canadian crotch rock. He has great hair -- enough to cover three people. I'm sure he smells like Hai Karate. And he's got some weird kind of sexual energy.

Some gorgeous photos... The winter one is surreal... freezing fog is nutty. Were the trees all crystalline?

Яick Harris PRO 11 years ago
The trees had a layer of ice on them -- almost like diamonds. It was quite magical. The fog played with the lighting so it was difficult to photograph. And the fact that my batteries kept failing.
