  2. Your grammar is only slightly less atrocious than your wanton attacks on
    a photographer's choices. Get over Bret! Learn English; it's not that
    difficult.

    Thanks, Bret; I like the image a lot, but without it coming into a nest
    at 2,000 feet in a 150 foot tree, no NG on this one!

    Maybe the bird's momma got fucked by a flamingo?
    Did you ever think of that, Einstein?

    The bird does look a bit pink, now that you mention it.
    Sometimes that can be due to reflections near the bird, but I don't
    remember anything pink out there that day. Perhaps my old monitor is
    due for a calibration as you suggest.

    I don't believe the shot was underexposed, however. Any more exposure
    would've blown the bird out to pure white.

    ===================

    Note to D-Mac: See how easy it is to admit you f'd up?
    Notice that I didn't blame it on JPG compression or color space
    issues.

    It means the birds are very white and not using EC would blow out the
    highlights.
    Perhaps you should take a course in the use of Exposure Compensation
    to attain correct exposure?

    What is the subject .... the bird or the water? Which should be
    exposed correctly? (Hint: You can't choose both.)

    Note that the bird pic ( http://www.pbase.com/bret/image/108297913 )
    has 1/3 stop more exposure than the pic of the birds on the lake
    ( http://www.pbase.com/bret/image/108297914 ) and yet it looks
    darker. Perhaps because I wanted it to.

    Careful Bret.
    You'd lose once you got outside you own little cocoon of self pity. The
    truth seems to hurt you for some reason. Why is that? You are after all the
    bloke obsessed with taking photos of young girls and you have posted
    evidence you hang around schools with a camera.

    It seems you can dish it out but when you get it back you squeal like a kid
    who had his spray can taken off him.

    All you gotta do is stop cross posting your crap to a country specific
    newsgroup (aus.photo) and you won't hear a peep out of him. When are you
    going to learn that Usenet is not your playground. It's not even you friggin
    sand pit. You gotta share and to do that you need to work with rules. AUS is
    not TN mate.

    You dyslexia is getting worse fat boi.

    You might have thought you could over run an equipment group and an
    Australian group (which has about as much relevance to your photos as a
    dunny does) and make out your happy snaps have some relevance to the groups
    but we both know it all about Bret's EGO.

    To much competition in the binary groups. To many better examples with
    nature shooters so you figured the hacks here would fall for your ego
    massaging.

    Guess what?

    Bret Douglas is still an idiot looking for recognition where non is
    deserved. Get over it jackass. If you don't have anything relevant to the
    groups to post, masturbate over Helen or something. Don't stuff up other
    people's experiences just because you want a few ohhhs and arrrs for your
    happy snaps. Get on to Smug Mug with the other image thieves.

    Hey, everyone, it's just a picture of a damn bird! Why all this over
    analysis of what might have been? Like it makes any difference at all,
    or if somebody could do anything on a grab shot like that. Just enjoy
    the image for once instead of obsessing about the wingtips are blurred
    or not, etc, etc. See the forest, not the tree. Sheesh! JPBill

    When will it down on you, you imbecile piece of shit, that
    I don't use multiple personas on the Usenet. Focus is not me.
    Unlike you, imbecile, and the morons you frequent, I don't need
    to hide to post.

    It certainly appears you do not have a CLUE.

    Too right. I'd love to see all these pixel-peepers use the spot
    meter and the histogram, checking for "blown highlights" and other
    such crap, while the bird flies away. That would work real well
    in real life, no missed shots anywhere...

    Sorry to disappoint you Rich but I know more about Hitler than you
    ever will. Anyone who disrespects the disabled by stating their mother
    should have spared us all by aborting them or even having her tubes
    tied deserves to be put in a class with the likes of such a monster.

    So was the smiley I thought!!!!!
    (apparently not to you though)

    However they still add nothing to the photo.
    A real water spray would however.

    My father was a survivor of Auschwitz and his entire family had the
    misfortune of being Hitler's victims. My father told me stories that
    only a witness would know. So get off my back!

    I'm just waiting for you post a really good (ROTFL) example of a HD movie
    before I show you haw bad you toy actually is.

    Fancy Canon virtually telling over half their customers to get stuffed when
    they made the piece of junk you bought? Have tey bothered to fix the dropped
    frames? NO. Have they offered any refunds because replays on a PAL system
    have the jitters? NO. Do they know how many sales it'll lose them? Ha, ha,
    ha. Probably not!

    Another Jeff Ralph joke?

    Thieving stalkers like you and the trolls who befriend you have killed of
    any chance of "decent people" bothering with Usenet. Look no further than
    your own disgusting and illegal behavior to see why.

    In an environment where the lighting was changing (eg late afternoon),
    where you are shooting varied scenes, often with very small white birds
    on a much larger backdrop, spot metering would likely be more difficult
    than simply taking an educated guess at exposure comp as Bret quite
    sensibly did. The results speak for themselves - he has kept the
    highlights well under control, without going too dark.
    Matter of opinion. I think it looks fine, and tone mapping often ends
    up looking like.. tone mapping.


    By the way, you might want to fix your date, "Gemini"...
