Trying to figure out that flying thing. Bird? Some sort of glider?

It's a seagull, side-on and mid-flap.

It's a strawberry floating UFO. I zoomed in and it's definitely of the triangular variety that those pesky gray's just love to commandeer.

About 7pm. It's lit up by my horrible patio light (the hedgehogs don't seem to mind) so the white balance needs a lot of correction.

Think they could be used as album artwork. So good.

I'm not in the same league as most here, but I do have an eye for photography - not that I think it gets my results much further than average.

thankkss

Wanted to get some shots during November but had one day off in 58 days..frustrating me. All art aims fell apart. 2 more books by Christmas day and another character collection didn't get done. Wanted to find a white wall with good amount of people passing and to do more blur photos just before it gets fully dark, drop shutter speed to about 1/15. I know the conditions i found before, and got loads, going back day after day. It was a stop with trams going through.

So...Sunday, then Saturday, and Sunday day before yesterday..first time using fz330 day before yesterday despite having it for months. It is more rapid, is actually literally silent than just quiet. Has continuous burst like the canon (but faster) which is a revelation really... I don't know how many shots I've missed from being too early or too late...fz 150 had a side button on barrel that allowed you to lock on. I choose subject, lock on, people pass...during burst it tries to re focus. I like the occasional blurry image, and should want unpredictability. Really want multiple people sharing the composition who are just passing. Got one like that, and like the pattern but want cooler subjects.

Went to a Martin Parr exhibition at Manchester gallery, his best stuff is really great. So clean, colourful, distinctive. His new stuff taken in Manchester over last few years and this summer...like stock photos of the city really. Here's me meeting a barber. Here's some scientists. Visitors allowed to leave messages on cards were writing a lot of 'very sanitized..where's the homeless?'.

I had no idea about this building before so I looked it up and I will have to visit, architecturally it looks like nothing I have ever seen before

I worry about you guys not watermarking these.

Especially Suffocate Peon.

It wouldn't take much for someone to swoop in here and use them for as stock imagery for some advert or graphic design and you'd never know they were taking credit or getting paid off the back of your wonderful photos.

I thinks it's unlikely with the type of mostly grainy stuff i do ! Someone might use one for a gig poster. I got asked about that ages ago. I waited to reply because i wanted to find the original file, which was hidden away on a hard drive almost impossible to find.

I know I'm probably not at risk, but as a pleb who only uses MS Paint, watermarking isn't exactly in my skill set.

How does one do it?

Any program that uses layers and allows fade/transparency? I've seen stuff on deviantart with a huge watermark across the entire middle of their image.

You could just add text on mspaint though in the corner ?

I never got Photoshop CS working and still use Photoshop 7. Easily torrented i should think, i think everyone should have it really.

It's not worth watermarking stuff in my opinion. The chances of people stealing an image are pretty much non-existence these days. With sites like Unsplash offering people free hi-res images for commercial and non personal stuff. Stealing and image is more hassle than it's worth.

At the same time. It only seems to be poor photographers who watermark their images.
