    Default July -07 contest "Outside"

    Well summer is here (for most of us...) and well I have been spending a lot of time "outside" So that is the theme of this month's contest. Outside - can be just out of the house or if you are taking any vacations this month. So be creative!

    File Uploads:
    You can place the photos in this thread and I will put them all together at the end of the contest.

    Or You can upload them to this gallery. username: tony@fourthirdsphoto.com password: outside please link them back here, and make sure that you include in the comments your username and title.

    Rules:
    1- follow all of sites rules.
    2- only 1 post per person
    3- shot must be in the month of the contest. (Please include EXIF info)
    4- a title is nice to include with your photo.

    The top 4 contributers will be entered into the 43photo photographer of the year contest.
    Also to help sweeten the pot. If there are more than 25 entries, we will not only give away software by media chance, we will also give away a free year of smugmug. (The top voted member gets first choice on what he wants) But remember we need at least 25 people in the contest for 2 prizes.
    In addition, this month we will also give-a-way a free Olympus Studio 2.0 license!!
    This event is sponsered by media chance and the winner will get to pick from one of these following prizes:

    Each winner will recieve a pick from one of these three prizes:
    PhotoBrush:
    PhotoBrush is an image editor, natural and artistic media painting program, picture retouching tool, photo enhancer and Image Browser for Windows OS. Accept usual range of image formats including RAW files!


    Dynamic Photo HDR
    My photo is not what I remembered?
    Many times you see a beautiful scene and of course you take a picture! The result is often far from being the magical scene you remember.
    Our eyes are very adaptive and they are also more sensitive to intensity than color. It is estimated that our eye can see over a dynamic range of nearly 24 f-stops while a digital camera can capture a dynamic range around 6 to 9 f-stops. See this gallery for examples!


    DCE AutoEnhance:
    DCE AutoEnhance is an automatic photo enhancer and batch processor. This application will help you with the time consumingjob of adjusting and enhancing your daily digital images in a whole new and smart way. Primarily targeted to JPEG files with EXIF but accept also RAW files!

    PureImage:
    PureImage is our newest addition to the digital camera tools. Wavelet based Noise Reduction and Color Matching application that uses the latest research in image processing. Also this application supports usual range of image formats and RAW files!

    Multimedia Builder:
    Windows-based multimedia authoring system allows you to create autorun CD menus, Multimedia Applications on CD-ROM, Demos, Presentations, MP3 players and much, much more.

    RealDraw:
    First time in just one drawing package you have the power to combine vector, 2D, 3D and bitmap editing into totally new level, where one form seamlesly transforms into another.
    Real-DRAW sets a whole new standard in vector editing.

    Happy shooting!

    Default "Red Towel"

    Shot on July second at a local beach. Lumix L1 1/125 at f8, ISO 100, AP. No post processing. I had photographed this staircase about a year ago with a Minolta point and shoot and liked the image, but the quality did not permit much enlargement. This is my first contest entry.

    English Summer

    Attachment 5316

    The dominant theme for outdoors in the UK this month has been the weather. This shot seems to sum up the unpredictability of it all and is very "outdoors"

    Default Forest Canyon, RMNP

    Nothing says "Outside" to me like a pano above treeline. This one is in IR, taken from the overlook at Forest Canyon, Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park, along Trail Ridge Rd http://rmnp.com/RMNP-Areas-TrailRidge.HTML, the highest continuous road in the U.S. (highest paved road is at Mt. Evans, also in CO). Longs Peak (14,255 ft., 4345m) is at the far left, Mt. Ida on the right. The peaks in between are in the 12,000' range.

    Best to view this one against a dark background.

    E-300, 14-45 @ 25mm, Hoya R72 filter
    Each exposure 1.5" @ f8.
    Pano of 9 images, preprocessed in Aperture, stitched w/Hugin.

    My first ever entry. Not 100% sure about the sizing. Taken very near my home in an area called Powick Hams. Hams is, I believe, old English for "near water" and this area is where the River Teme flows into the River Severn.
    It is also where the first major skirmish and the last battle of the English Civil War took place.The world's first combined steam/hydro electric power station is here too.

    Great timing, I just finished a 3 week aerial photoshoot for the Department of Tourism. Lots of outside shots to choose from (more on my site). This is one of my favorites however. Hope you like!

    Default Outside of my comprehension

    This artifact sits outside of my local library but is tucked away out of obvious view. It is possibly a stylised version of that great Australian icon - the outside dunny (toilet).
