Well done Grahamnp for getting your shot in early, perhaps I should take a leaf out of your book.

I like your shot I like the reflections, it does for sure give the impression of travelling through time. Great perspective on the subject.

Cheers Ormina

Thanks Jake, I appreciate that. It's nice to hear that somebody likes my framing, many people (especially here in Holland) don't. I'll tell my mother :) .

Bjorn,

i was actually quite concerned by your framing... do you always frame your pictures because it really gives a little something to your shots.
How about a dslrtip to learn how to nicely frame our pictures? :D

great idea for this assignement, i've got a few ideas trotting in my head

Quentin

"Concerned", is that possitive :?: I frame all pictures I post on the internet, because I think it makes them look more professional (just my opinion though :) ). The way I do it is probably not the right one: I have designed my frame with MS Power Point, and everytime I want to frame a picture, I copy it to the PP-presentation, stick it in the frame, copy the whole thing, and save it in Paint. I haven't figured out how to create similar frames with e.g. Photoshop CS2, other wise I'd do that, because I'd have more quality and EXIF too.

Gotta go eat now!

yes in a positive way because it does give a professional look. i don't use photoshop (just nikon's free picture project) because i'm not really into post processing but i'd like to make frames

Keeping it simple, without deviating too far from the thread, you just simply resize your canvas under Image > Canvas size.

I'll be on several assignments this month, so hopefully I can squeeze out the ideas for this month's time theme with time I have spare.

Regards.

Any news on if collages are allowed yet?
If they are, I have a killer idea - although I fear half of this forum may be doing a similar thing =P

Hi Ed,

Ormina's entry is in the February poll. 8)

Nothing has changed in the March submissions rules to rule them out so go for it. I guess that if members think a montage is used simply as a way to hedge bets they won't vote for it (as I write Ormina's entry has 5% of the vote 8) 8) 8) ).

Bob.

Hey,
Yes, the thought about making a collage for the march submission is tempting, and i can see a few really cool things you can do.

One little issue tho, is that the images must be taken in marsch. So that kind of reduce the "timeframe" drastically if you want to do really cool time-collages.

I also had a killer idea, but this fact took it away :)
