Tiff I was sickened by your mailer. What exactly were you thinking to produce something like that. I just don't feel good about the whole thing I really need to spew.

ooh that sounds fun...I keep getting 50% (or there abouts) Jedi power :lol: Maybe I should work a little harder.

No need to really work harder....just pick up the money since it can buy just about anything. I had almost 2 million at one point before spending it all.

Hey JIM,

You weren't in Mexico at all, you were photographed skiing HERE (external link)

How embarrasing! That person in the yellow helmet in one of those shots looks like he/she got a face full of a full moon helping the poor guy off. :lol:

Ummmm ... Maybe you missed some of POTN's most infamous moments with Jim, and Neil?

Please don't spark those....

...to late. They've popped back in my head. *brain bleach* Funny though, your forgot Neil's bikini wrap by the lamp post.

It will be moving day. 100+ posts by the time I get home is not hard task around here.

Front:
Back:
I realize there is an extra space in there and the dates are off. I may also up the price a bit since just the prints would sell for $35ish and I still need to make something for my time. But, I'm also trying to garner good karma.

I may also link them to a special "simply senior" page with more info and a frequently updated booking schedule.

I still think it looks good....they will probably not be looking at the extra spaces or that the dates are off ;).

Here is a LINK (external link) to a far inferior picture of The Angel of The North on my website but there is some interesting information about it below the picture.

If you are getting two let me recommend "Infamous Angel" & "My Life" they were the first two I got after hearing her sing "Our Town" on the soundtrack of "Northern Exposure" (LINK (external link) )

Me: Yep, that's a country song
Mom: IT IS NOT!

Just a little thing (for me anyhow) you have 2 photos of women on the back. Wouldn't it be a little better to have 1 male, 1 female shot? So it would be more attractive to a male senior to find your company more approachable? Just my thinking here.

I think that's very good advice if you have a male portrait available

Harm that is exceptional, that is so not an easy thing to photograph, this is one of the best shots I have seen of it (including mine, unfortunately :-( )

Thanks Neil. I drove pretty quickly to get there, as I wanted better shots, thought I had missed out...but they turned out better than I thought.

Thanks guys. Yeah, as Neil says, it is the Angel of the North. A large structure where the A1 motorway / highway passes along side it, as you drive towards Newcastle. As for neil talking about his inferiority complex, he is speaking out of his arse, as his shots are great, and the ones of the bridges over the tyne are superb, at high tide. I used to walk along the quayside at lunchtime by the bridges when I was at the Newcastle office.

Here is one of my pathetic attempts at the Tyne Bridges:

well, the day I purchased the 16-35II I was in the camera store during a nikon event...I was playing with the D3 and the 14-24. It was a mistake. Because the IQ was incredible. I'd never seen such nice IQ on an UWA. Never. So then I go home and put the 16-35II on my camera and was so disappointed at the edge softness. The people here who upgraded from the 16-35I say that it's so sharp but it's not...not in the corners...the 14-24 was sharp all the way to the edges. I use FF and UWA a lot...it's kind of a signature look for me. So I was disgruntled. Then because the ds2 constantly out tracked the M3 on whites (the m3 hated whites), but really only did well up to 1600 iso, I was constantly frustrated in my low light wedding shoots. I had to sacrifice one thing or another.

One day someone wanted to trade their D700, a 50mm and a travel flash so I wrote and asked them if they'd take a M3. I lost money but gained happiness. I was going to keep both systems because I absolutely love the ds2, but it is really hard to go back and forth. Everything is completely the opposite...from how you put on the lens to exposure comp...it's too difficult for me to be in both camps. Dan really loved the ds2 as well, and has wanted it since the day I got it, so when I had the opportunity to trade a lens for the D300, I took it and with two cameras, I needed more lenses so I decided to give Dan the stuff he'd need for the ds2 as well as the camera and then move completely to nikon.

It happened really fast and I wondered if i'd be happy...because of my happiness with the ds2. I'll say that the nikon does not produce the "angel factor" shots that the ds2 does. (I know that sounds weird but there is just something about those shots...I can't put my finger on it...but they are amazing.) But it produces excellent IQ nonetheless. I even like the D300 (which I wasn't sure I would). So I'm content. I'm loving the lenses. The zoom IQ on the 14-24 and 24-70 I'd pit against any prime...except the 300 2.8 and larger. Thee 70-200 vr is equal to the canon version...so I don't feel I've lost anything. And Dan is extremely happy with his kit too.

It was a win win afaiac.

Make sense. Both systems are excellent, but each has its strengths and weaknesses. I've messed around with my FIL's D300, it's definitely nice. Very nice actually, but for me I found the interface a bit awkward, but I'm sure its something easy to get used to over time. One small thing I liked was how the focus dots on the viewfinder turned on/off depending on what focusing pattern you used.
