Eye Candy – Banner/Background

Well I’m no photoshop expert… but once and a while, I like to explore some of it’s possibilities.

On my last venture I’ve created a banner/wallpaper picture from my last set of Wing Tsjun pictures ! So if you guys won’t mind please fill in the comments with any suggestions or remarks !! I’ve also posted the original picture, so if you have any time, just give it a go and astonish me with some nice design/rework.

Update: Here is a script for non pro Flickr users to get the large size of all pictures available

Grouping the masses

Well to be honest I just love all those online services that let you group like minded people ! Also keeping your own profile online targeted by some service is a great thing…

Now Flickr has been around for a while now and I’ve had my account set up a long time ago ( not a pro though, don’t like to pay much πŸ˜‰ ). But only now I’ve used their grouping function.

So for our Wing Tsjun organisation I’ve created a Flickr pool, so all the people in our organisation who took pictures that are related to Wing Tsjun, can now centralise those pictures inside the pool !

Of course the pool is publicly available for browsing, so just check it out here !

Taste twisting

Had a small taste dispute with Nicodemus today, it was small because he had to catch his evening car ride home ! But if he had the time, no doubt we would still be arguing about the differences of taste :).

The argue was about the fine looks of the other species, females ! My type is the more ‘sporty, young, fresh’ kind, preferably with short hair… the colour of the hair doesn’t matter so much.

But to prove my point here a small overview and let me throw this around as a stick to Nicodemus πŸ˜‰ !

Digital SLR options

Well people,

I’m calling out for help !!
Currently I’m a proud owner of a small digital photocamera the Nikon CoolPix 4300 and a very good analog SLR photocamera the Nikon F80.

Nikon CoolPix 4300 Nikon F80

I use the compact digital one for all “home and hobby” usage ( You know, like in house events, outdoor gatherings with friends or family and other small things ) and have the analog SLR if I want to take semi pro stuff… ( Mostly black and white close ups of our little daughter Femke πŸ˜‰ )

But technology doesn’t stop, so I would like to trade the analog SLR for a newer digital version !! And here we have the main reason for this post, I would love to hear your comment and try to help make my descision…

What are the options :

* Only Nikon : if possible I only want to buy a new body and use the lenses from my F80
* I’m only an amateur in photography, so not an all to fancy new one

Currently I’m opting for the Nikon D50, but I don’t know this is a good choice ?

Nikon D50

I found several reviews, but I lack the needed experience to really tell the difference, so could you guys help out ?
My main issues now is that the D50 laks a remote cord to take pictures, like the D70s has with the use of the MC-DC1 !
