OK Levina, full understanding now.....and sadness we're limited to whatever our limit is here...1280?

Yay! :love:

Yes, 1280 for now. But it's better than 1024px. Problem is that flickr doesn't have that size. Between "large 1600px" and "large 1024px" there is nothing. And when you embed a pic from flickr it will, by default, give you the 1024px size. If you want flickr to embed your pics as 1280px on the long side you will have to upload your pics to flickr in that 1280px size. Then, when embedding the pic here you will need to choose the "original" size manually (copy and paste the BBCode yourself), because using the Fetch tool will still only give you the smaller 1024px pic.

There is no such thing as ect. It's etc. (with period) from latin et cetera.
Colours are not complimentary but complementary.

Micheal thanks, yes fully on auto but with only 79 possible af points with the old Minolta stuff, versus 399 with the newer sony lenses.
Me, I kinda like Minolta, except for my copy of the Minolta 400mm APO, it was an ebay gamble and I lost on that one.

Awesome Rob. Love the perfect reflection. Almost like he's skimming across. Well I hope the Mighty Hunter gets the fly!
