    self promoting posts.

    Great looking shot, you might want to correct the bowing of the
    horizon. I'm kind of surprised to see that with a normal telephoto.

    Good day Ed.
    Where is the self promotion please?

  6. You have no ads or receive absolutely no income in regard to anyone
    visiting your site?

    I see what are getting at Ed.
    When I created a domain name with godaddy.com for $10 a year, they offer me
    "free" web hosting for it. They still get their pound of flesh by using a
    header to display Google's infamous "ADWORDS".

    So in the pure context of your objection; NO, I am not engaged in self
    promotion or in advertising any products. My web host does however recover
    the cost of providing me with free hosting by advertising above my web
    pages.

    Would you prefer I spend $20 a month on a hosting package so I can show you
    my pictures without annoying you at the same time?

  8. Fascinating; I see no ads on any of your pages. The wonders of modern
    technology :).

  9. That's a pretty unpleasant red cast you've got there.

    Nicely done Doug. Shows nice detail in fore ground. Having a person
    in the image shows the true scale of the rocks and waves. Quite
    impressive. I took a "rough" measurement of the horizon at each edge
    and in the center of the picture. Even though the horizon looks
    slightly bowed, it isn't. On my monitor the colors do not have a red
    cast to them. Just clean.
    So you can take nice images. Always thought so.

    It's red here too. And the horizon is ALWAYS bowed, damn it.

    Actually the bowing is fine that probably means it was taken on a planet
    about the size of the one I come from, the slight lopsidedness could be
    adjusted just a little though.

    If you are sixty thousand plus feet in alttitude the the curvature of
    the world is quite easy to see. At fucking sea level it appears as a
    straight line as in the image. If the image has a red cast to it on
    your monitor, fine.

    Getting even isn't good enough.

    I agree that at sea level the horizon should not look bowed, but I
    disagree that there is no bow in the image, try resizing the width
    down to 64 pixels, leaving the vertical the same, it is very apparent
    then.

    There can be weather conditions that can do some pretty odd things to
    the horizon, so perhaps that is what we are seeing, but it does not
    look like that.

    The only time my horizons have ended up looking bowed has been from
    lens distortion.

    I don't see a red cast to the image.
