  1. I like Sonic Youth's version better. Much better.me too. I also like Sonic Youth's version of Ca Plane Pour Moi over Plastic Bertrand's.
  2. Awesome! This was one of those effects that I've seen everywhere and always wanted to learn but just never got to digging into it.And I totally understand what you mean about cleaning up residuals One of my daughters is still dealing with constant eczema in one spot on her cheek so I'm always trying to touch that up. Thanks for sharing! No problem. Every time I get a little bored with photography I find something new to play around with and it makes it all the more interesting. If you want a simpler, cheaper way of getting a similar effect, the Lomo and 70's effects included in the latest version of Picasa does this, but you have a little less control on the fine tuning.

  4. I think the idea of post processing with software is a must and is worth investing some time trying to learn one. While it's pretty hard to take a crappy picture and make it great, it's pretty easy to take a good picture and make it awesome with minimal effort. there are a number of different options to manipulate your pictures, with Photoshop, Lightroom and Picasa being the most ubiquitious.Picasa is the most basic and it's free. Despite it being free, there's a lot of editing you can do with it and they are adding functions to it all the time. I used to use the full Photoshop but it was dated so I bought an earlier version of Photoshop Elements for about $40. It has 95% of the stuff I used in the full Photoshop. There is a learning curve to it, but they also include a lot of beginner fixes too. I've recently been messing around with some free Photoshop actions and getting some interesting results, like here. I haven't used Lightbox but most that do seem to like it too. Can you share with us the before photo? I love that effect. Would you mind sharing what tools you used to get there? TIA. I'll scare up the 'before' photo tonight from my home PC. I am still interested in how you created that effect in PS as well oh yeah. here's the before picture. All the adjustments were done in Photoshop Elements 8. The steps were: 1. clean up Cheetos residuals around her mouth with lasso, then healing tool. This kid has gotten me good at this. 2. make the eyes pop via the instructions here. I set the exposure much lower than what this tutorial suggests. Some refinement is needed to avoid making it look too fake, but I like this trick for tweaking portrait pictures. I've also learned that you need a good sharp image of the eyes for this to be worthwhile. 3. the last effect is a Photoshops Action called Florabella Mademoiselle. I'm not sure what is more embarrassing: that I sought out and found this feminine effect or that I was excited to find a copy of it via torrent. On the last point, I've been messing around with a few different Photoshop actions that are available online free (mostly legitimate). The only other one that I've really liked for my purposes is MCP Touch of Light action. A good way to make a portrait pop is to lighten everything but the face. I'm just beginning and experimenting with these, so I'm not an expert on these. This all started by seeing some nice pictures that friends had gotten done with professional photographers and then trying to reverse engineer what they did.

  6. Yep. I caught the sunset about 10 minutes late. No pictures updated yet. I was expecting pictures of sweaty hippie protesters from you. My bad.

  8. I thought the Mexican soap opera was actually a bigger, stranger departure for the show than the pregnancy news. Very few sitcoms keep the quality going for this long, so I'm curious what they will do next with the show.
  9. in what.. a short time frame?what if it went to 40 tomorrow? (it won't, but still) paper losses are kind of silly.especially since he never had the money before.I doubt he's going to be too bummed about going from 16 to even 10 billion... it's still several billion more than he could ever spendEver. It's already at like $5 billion evaporated so far and the end may not be near yet. This turd is toxic.if it erodes down to a buck a share and he still has several million dollars I think he'll be able to make it.Guy could probably get a job coding at microsoft for a few hundred G's a year too.I suspect he'll remain solventI think Otis' sportsbook account had more volatility than Zuckerburg's worth. YWIA.
  10. I hope they come up with some clever twist on the gameplay that all but eliminates any strategy and makes the game random.
  11. Congrats...that is a great finish... enjoyed following this event. Would love to make it there some day.
