    Great shots Rusty! I was about to post a picture of my own (not
    landscapes), but this has left me sitting here going WOW.

    Anyway, I will still post.....

    I've just opened that image in IE7 and Bon Echo 2.0.0.9 (Firefox) on Vista
    64 on a Samsung 215TW. In Bon Echo the greens are decidedly greener.

    Oops douggy - you forgot to change your newsreader out of
    your sockpuppet profile before you posted eh?

    Umm, Douglas, your intense desire to be a woman is showing for all to
    see..

    That's Douglas MacDonald, of:

    www.clocksnprints.com
    www.weddingsnportraits.com.au
    www.douglasjames.com.au
    www.brisbaneweddingphotographers.com

    and who also uses the name "Douglas St James", presumably when he
    isn't being Sarina.

    Douglas angrily and self-righteously defended "Sarina" over here:
    http://groups.google.com.au/group/rec.photo.equipment.35mm/browse_frm/thread/27e5ca0635b43d10
    ...and it seems to be rather clear why...

    (O: Merry Xmas, all !!!


    PS - Now, place your bets. Will he disappear for the obligatory few
    weeks, or do we just wait for the "I meant to do that, I was just
    trolling" excuse..?

    Whatever.. - as long as he thinks it improves his credibility, I
    guess. (O:

  9. Beautiful work, as usual, Russ.

    Just curious, does stitching these sort of longish exposures give you
    any added issues? I can't imagine that it would, but I'm just curious
    - I'm hoping to get the energy together to shoot this area myself
    soon, and I'm planning a fair bit of stitching, meself!!

    Well why does PS with an AdobeSRB working space, ask what to do with
    the embedded sRGB profile, when all of the above 3 images are opened?

    Thanks Mark,

    Flowing water doesn't normal provide much of a problem, as the blur
    tends to blend very well. The image linked above is not a stitch
    however... when shooting 16.7mp you have the luxury of cropping and
    still getting a pretty decent pano. ;)

    Here is a sample of stitched flowing water that I did as a test when I
    first made my pano head...

    Cheers

    What I should have also mentioned is the movement in the leaves from
    one frame to another.... this can sometimes be a pain, bit I have
    found that PTGui and Enblend/SmartBlend do a great job of sorting out
    the blends and selecting areas that avoid the inter-frame movement.

    BWAHAHAAAAHAAAA!!! Busted once again, D-Mac!
    The ultimate irony is that he created this Sarina sock to use to chide
    John McWilliams for being one of my lackeys.
    But believe it or not, I sympathize and understand why Douggie does
    this.
    You see, it really does suck to be D-Mac!

    Druggie lays awake nights imagining he was a young law school
    graduate, or a millionaire businessman, or a photographer with
    talent. But these will always just be dreams for him. Hence, all his
    dirty socks.

  18. I think my main concern would be the movement in leaves - it *can*
    look ok... maybe on a windy day it might be worth doing a few short
    exposures to freeze those bits... (and then complicate the stitching
    somewhat!) It will be an interesting exercise.

    And so to pre-empt Douggie, my guess will be that Douggie will come back
    with some frabrication that "Sarina" is a visiting friend and fellow
    Professional, she was using his laptop and didnt change the profile back
    completely before he (A master at writing security apps for Linux no less)
    used the computer.

    Isnt it funny that someone who not only used Linux but actualy took the time
    to write world class Security apps for it, is still stuck in a Window
    enviroment.
    I would love to know the name of the Apps he wrote, I have a friend in
    Romania who workes for Red Hat (though he is mainly in kernel dev) who would
    be able to look up the apps for me, he might even have a working knowlege
    and give a reccomendation.

    What license were they written under Douggie ??

    Well you know he can't answer that since his Linux security apps were
    written for many of the major world powers (NDAs, ya know). Interpol,
    the FBI, the CIA, NSA, all of them use apps written by Douggie
    Dogkiller.
