Hmm, now 1280x800 is back again, and you can download them.
Definitely a different behaviour like yesterday.
What did you do, Zorro?

I honestly don't remember mate. I'll have another look in a minute.

I've opened a new gallery anyway and I'm seriously considering deleting my Flickr account. I get annoyed at constantly being "invited" to join The Greatest Of The Greatest group. Created yesterday by wee johnnie on a whim. It's irritating.

I'll get back to you in a bit

Zorro.

But you certainly get a lot of resonance - posting a pic that shoots up to over 300 views within a short time...
There are much more people @ flickr than here in the CL forum! Before you change have a look at www.alexa.com for your new home to be sure it has lots of traffic. And a good way to tag your shots.

Zorro? ZOOOOOORRO!
What did you use with Photomatix: "Detail Enhancer" or "Tone Compressor"?
Did you test both, what differences did you see? Any tweaks/adjustments of the settings??

I used the detail enhancer, but the rest is a secret. I have no knowledge of how it actually works. I just fiddled around with the settings and eventually got something to work. I saved that as a preset and now I always use that preset. Are you using the very latest version of Photomatix?

Ah, ok: "Secret Ingredients"! Only to be applied by the "Dark Lord of HDR" :wink:
If that's so, I will not tell you which version of Photomatix ruined my pics either :P

I'm using version 2.5. You?

2.4.1. But what about your "secret" adjustments? Won't you share :cry:

Yes I would share, but the adjustments available in 2.5 are greater than in your version. There's actually quite a big difference moving on to 2.5. Light smoothing in particular is far more refined. Do you use MSN Messenger?

Here's my latest attempt. I've been trying to use HDR but in a way which is both subtle and striking at the same time. I really hoped this one would turn out better than this but I've kind of hit a brick wall with it. With thanks to Gordon for giving me the clue as to how to make this as decent as it is.

The picture shows Dunnottar Castle on a good day. We're not getting many of those this summer so soak it up, lol.

Nice work once again Zorro! Was this the one with the pesky dust marks?

Anyway, get it printed for your local and see who bites!

PS - actually having attempted to twist your arm into doing A3 prints, smaller A4 prints can look really nice in the right frame, or of course cropped ones with a wider aspect ratio can be quite unusual and appealing for people to buy...
