    This one is modified with Photoshop. I didn't have a reflector or a
    flash when I took it. There is a brief description of the enhancements
    I made. Maybe of interest to some. An archive shot incidentally.

    Isn't the whole point of POD galleries to make yourself get out and
    shoot a new pic each day? So what's with the archive shots?

    Is that your idea Bret?
    I said I'd take a photo every day.
    I didn't say I'd post that photo every day.
    I'm sure even you can comprehend that?
    Change channels if you don't like the show.
    You do still have the remote, don't you?

    Why not do what the rest of us have done and killfile him and his 4
    other names. Notice sine he has been posting his crap posters are
    saying how good Rocha's pictures are.

    -Because it isn't 4. It's at LEAST 14...perhaps 40... Who knows. All I
    know is that I gave up kill-filing Doug long ago when it became clear that
    he enjoys the negative attention...and assures it by re-naming himself out
    of everyone's kill-file.

    Here a little tip Mark.
    My IP address is stable. All you have to do is block it and you'll
    never know I exist.
    I would have thought a man with as big an opinion of himself as you
    have would know this simple process.
    I guess you aren't as smart as you make out, eh?

    Your presence here only serves to remind others of their own,
    relatively-high intelligence and sanity--similar to the way the presence of
    a fat girl makes others appear relatively "thin." I've offered you many
    olive branches and chances for redemption, Doug--both public and
    private--but your own insanity foils all hope for a graceful recovery. As
    to the question of intellect... -I've made no erroneous intelligence
    claims...and you needn't bother making any regarding yours.

    Good day to you.

    Just refresh me on this Mark...
    At what point in the development of the Internet did you get elected
    spokesperson for the 20 million or so people using Usenet?
    It seems to me you have an attitude larger as your ego. I'd get over
    it if I were you.

    I have as much right here as you do. Any attempt by you to restrict my
    rights or in any way attempt to orchestrate my demise or impinge on my
    quiet enjoyment of the Internet and Usenet in particular - as your
    posts intimate you are intent on doing, is bullying in the clearest
    manner. Have no fears Mark, I simply won't tolerate it and neither
    will your ISP. Just stop it. Use the blocking information here to
    prevent any posts from my IP address and for once, display some
    intelligence. Block all posts from 58.174.160.48 and I'll make a
    commitment to repost my IP should I post from another location in the
    future. That way whatever it is about me you dislike will not annoy
    you again.

    What is it about me that you dislike incidentally?
    My demand for the same rights as you?
    Maybe it's my dislike of you that pisses you off?
    Maybe it's the way I attack in defense of my rights?
    God help us all if it's my photography!

    Care to enlighten me and anyone else curious as to why you single me
    out for a display of your bad manners?

    You're free to be just as you please. I have neither the intent nor the
    power to "restrict" your activities.
    There you go with the threats again. Have you noticed that you're the only
    one making them?
    The fact that you have to ask that...only speaks to the pointlessness of
    explaining.
    You're free to post as you please. But you're not free to a use-net
    existence where response or comment is non-existent. That has never been
    anyone's use-net "right."
    If someone dislikes me, I can live with that.
    I wish you could do the same.
    Your rights to what? You're free to post to your heart's content,
    Doug...just as you are doing now.
    Actually, Doug...my manners have been far above what your antics call for.
    You've threatened so many people, and yet I've never threatened you. To the
    contrary, I've shown considerable restraint to the point of making 100%
    sincere, private e-mail contacts with you.

    As for me...I've spent more time on a different forum system...where people
    don't have to wade through the kind of constant threats and endless
    windmill-chasing you embark upon with such regularity.

    Now I'm going to let you have the last word. Granted, you'll likely respond
    with some troll attempt which tries to elicit a response (suggesting, once
    again, that you truly relish and crave conflict), but I'll try to resist.
    No promises, mind you...(we all have our limits)...but I've very
    deliberately left you alone for some time...hoping you'd get on with your
    life. Here's hoping you'll still do that.

    Give it up Mark, its just not worth it. I have tried and he has proved again
    and again that he is a prize idiot and just not worth the oxygen.

    Cheers.

    Odd comment that.
    I've had your email address and name blocked from receiving mail since you
    sent me a condescending load of crap about how good you are. Even odder is
    that when I attempted to get an answer from you "by private email" via
    Pbase's contact form... No replies from you. You are surely the most elusive
    creature on the internet when it comes to getting a straight answer. Why is
    that Mark? Have you ever in your entire life said "sorry" to anyone?

    Your quaint and condescending attitude is only public chest beating. YOU
    suggested you tried to "killfile" me for years yet my boat's name (Ryadia)
    has been in use off and on by me for at least 3 years. How is it you can
    still read all my posts? Are you a liar or a braggart?

    The truth is Mark, you can't exist without creating a ruckus on Usenet. The
    minute someone fronts you for your attitude or your bad manners, you pick a
    fight with them and then pull out the soap box and start your holier than
    thou, condescending speeches about how innocent you are for having hi-jacked
    a thread and attacking it's originator with not a single word relating to
    the original post. Absolutely pathetic behaviour. You are one of Usenet's
    worst bullies. STOP IT.

    You don't post a single word related to the topic of my posts, just try to
    hi-jack them and in the process contribute to the degradation of Usenet
    standards and the fall in numbers of contributors to the groups.

    I don't recall a single exchange between us that didn't start with one of
    your off topic posts and end with you making the last post. I bet you shake
    hand with strangers, palm down to try and assert authority over them before
    ever you realize you never had any in the first place.

    Your behaviour is so predictable that despite giving you the knowledge of
    how to be sure you really have "killfiled" me, you couldn't resist replying
    again with yet more fuel for the fire. No doubt you'll do it with future
    messages of mine too. Ask yourself what the hell you are really trying to
    achieve. Certainly not topical discussions related to photography.

    Do yourself and everyone else a favour and actually block me from your PC.
    Before doing that, what about the answer Mark?

    Do you or do you not, support identity theft, copyright theft, defamation of
    my clients and multiple attempts to crack my business accounts by
    Annika1980. AND... Do you or do you not support censure of him for having
    done that? You've avoided the issue four times now. Show us all you are not
    the spineless bully that your actions make you out to be.

    I replied to you twice via Pbase, and they are still in my sent folder.
    If you like, I'll copy and paste them to the private e-mail of your
    choosing.

    BTW... You sent that e-mail from this Pbase page:
    http://www.pbase.com/bret_douglas/profile
    I know this simply because your e-mail still has that profile as it's
    origination via Pbase's internal system. The actual e-mail "name" in the
    "from" column read, "Loud Mouth (bret_douglas). I just now clicked on your
    e-mail message name, and it took me directly to the above page.

    I noticed that all images have been removed from that site you were
    using...so perhaps they also blanked out the messages you sent from it or
    recieved through it. In any event...if you want the messages I sent, they
    are available to you. Perhaps you'll still find them at the above address
    using the messages link? Only you could check that, though.

    You are a very childish boy, Peter.

    You seem to place a huge amount on your own self importance while at the
    same time, displaying childish stupidity only an idiot would show. Do
    yourself a favor and back off two paces and take ten deep breaths.

    Give mum back her computer and get a job so you can buy one of your own.
    You'll feel much better if you do something productive instead of
    letting newsgroups rule your every waking moment. You'd do well too, to
    lose focus on me.

    How stupid do you think your fake Email address looks to someone trying
    to figure out how this self styled Photographic genius (you) post such
    mediocre pictures while trying to make out you really are some sort of
    half way decent photographer qualified to pass judgment on someone else.

    Have a look from a distance mate and see how stupid and childish you
    really look. You're carrying on like some teenage groupie with a child
    like fake Email displaying your incredible jealous of me. Why? I'm a
    relic from the past mate.

    You've only got your nose out of joint because I bite back when you
    start your bullying. Live with it child. As long as you want to play
    with the big boys and make yourself look like a jerk, posting totally
    off topic remarks completely unrelated to photography, you'll stay a
    light weight idiot.

    Jealousy is a really nasty trait, mate. Get over it. Your worship and
    glorification of me is flattering but totally wasted. I'm only attracted
    to intelligent people who don't behave like a spoiled brat who thinks
    the world owes him a living. Click on the link below and read about
    yourself.

  17. Why do you put that thin framing line in the body of the pic? I noticed
    another shot where the framing line cuts through the head of one of the
    subjects. Why?
