    D-Mac lives in a fantasy world, there is very little he has told us
    that we can be at all sure is true.

    Does he really have a boat that he goes sailing on? He was going to
    go off sailing on it and leave us all behind, but then almost
    immediately Julian Abbot showed up, sure D-Mac you were on your boat.

    Did he ever own a 5D, I don't remember him ever posting a photo from a

    He keeps making up new people to be, more fantasy.

    The whole thing with his enlarged prints has been like a person who
    wants to play poker with you, but only if he can use his on deck of
    cards. D-Mac has from the start refused to use anyone else's images
    to be printed, seems like we might know why now.

    But I am sure there are some things that he has told us that are true,
    I mean there have to be some of what he said that is true, doesn't

    Then when he get caught in a lie he gets way indigent.

    Not so fast Colin. You seem to be able to read what is not written too. Not
    related to Scott are you?

    I sent you with that poster, a "mini-disc" with the camera RAW file of the
    enlargement in the tube which contained the enlargement itself . FYI, I
    took about 90 photos for that Pano job and used 20 to compose the panorama.

    Nowhere did I say I used 20 images side-by-side for that job. If you read
    the text, you'd realize the "proof" print is just 18" high but six feet
    long. Hardly the aspect ratio of a wall.

    The right side portion (you got) is a full, single frame of the print I sent
    you. If you bother to look at the camera original file I sent you, you'll
    see it is indeed a true enlargement of a single frame portion.

    The final image (which has never been posted) which I printed as wallpaper
    had frames added to the sky above the masts to highlight the cloud
    colourations and make the aspect ratio the same as the wall it was destined

    The crop you got was within a millimetre or two of the exact image size of
    the original camera file in a single frame enlargement. This is one of those
    times when discussing something honestly is a total waste of time because
    idiots who would rather assume sinister meanings will go off on a tangent
    looking for a flame war.

    In the event you don't have the RAW file anymore... Let me know and I'll
    post it on my web site. You can then measure it and determine if my math in
    calculating the location to crop is accurate or not. If that doesn't satisfy
    you. send me one of your own images and I'll enlarge it for you. Same
    deal... No charge just tell it as you see it.

    That is the first good idea you have had.

    But to save money in both printing the shipping why not do a smaller
    print, say a 4x6.

    A 20D image when printed to 24x36 inches comes out very close to

    Why not let Colin provide a 400x600 pixels image and let others might
    wish to also produce a 4x6 inch print from the same 400x 600 pixels
    image file?

    First, there was no minidisc with the print, just a letter. I have no
    idea whether you intended to send a disc, or why you would send a disk,
    since the subject was the print, and there was at that stage no
    discussion about the source image

    Second, the right-hand half of the pano you showed a day or so back
    appeared to be exactly the same as the print you sent, no added sky that
    I could see.

    To tell the truth, Doug, I really do not know exactly what images
    comprised the print, or where you are coming from here. Thank you for
    the offer to enlarge one of my images, but due to the strained
    relationship over time, with you abusing me and me abusing you, I do not
    feel that I can accept.

    I resolved some time ago to refrain from joining in the hostilities
    between you and Annika, Mark, and others. and I regret jumping in this
    time. It only happened because my name came up in the thread.

    Count me out as from now.

    Don't worry about it, Scott. I am not really interested in sending an
    image to be printed - see my post above. I am retiring back to the
    sideline, where I intend to stay in this ongoing brawl.

    I can fully understand.
