Default Margate Harbour

Howdy folks,

Traveled over to see my uncle in Cliftonville England last year, and was able to see again some sights I haven't seen since Nixon resigned.

Those members in England will know of Margate where I shot these.





Hope you enjoy.
Critiques and Comments always welcomed.

Three very nice shots, and the exposure looks perfect. Taken with the 17-40 lens?

Hi John,

Thanks for the compliments. Actually taken with the 28-135is and 70-200 f4/L.
I wished I had the 17-40 back then, but have only just gotten the lens.

Would have come in handy for this shot of Canterbury Cathederal

Oh, meant to add.
Please disregard the different copyrights. I've been going thru an identity crisis lately.

But they are all my images.

I did wonder about that. A commonly recurring comment you might see is with people querying the need for a copyright on a low quality 800px image. At least yours are small an inobtrusive though.

For many years I was using the TxCowboy which stemmed from my online gaming and what I called my webpage. Now that I'm hoping to take my photography to another level, I'm trying to make things appear (hopefully) a little more pro.

I quite like your framing and the new name at the bottom right does give a "professional" look to your photo. Perhaps I should give some thought to this with my photos too.

Thanks! er Cheers er Tah !

Pretty simple stuff, just a bit time consuming. I work on the image for a bit, resized to just under 640x480, then I make another blank image with the color being whatever I want the frame to be, then copy and paste the edited image into the new frame.

I then either do a drop shadow, on white, or feather the edge of the image if black. Bring all layers together, put a nice box around it, sign it with name, and there you go!

Thanks for the workflow Vance.

PS I'd recommend making your larger edge 800px for these forums as it makes it easier to appreciate the photos.

Thanks John!

Yeah, I'm a bit leary about making too big of an image, as some other forum's where I participate, have smaller requirements. That, and I remember my old dial up daze, and how much of a pain larger images were.

You're okay on these forums with a 100kb uploaded image (or round about that for a linked image), and with a maximum dimension of 800px in any direction.
