Subject: Post your random shots III
Date Posted: 13 November 2008 at 09:15
Welcome to the third part of the "Random shots" thread. Previous ones are http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/forum_posts.asp?TID=34145 - Post your random shots and http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/forum_posts.asp?TID=36505 - Post your random shots II .

Just to recap what this thread is about: there are only a three simple rules that must be fulfilled to post a photo in here:

* The photo you post must be selected from your gallery in a random way (or pseudo-random - if there are some computing purists around ). Use your calculator, or computer to generate some pseudo-random number. Or use dice, or results of your national lottery, or whatever ...

* The first shot selected must be posted, i.e. no cheating is allowed because e.g. "that first photos was so awful",

* No more than one photo per day is allowed.

Of course all are encouraged to comment others work and discuss various aspects of posted photos.

Oh I really liked (and still do) that picture and the title you found!

Here is my random pic for today, not a bird, not a macro for a change!

This is part of the Cuauhtémoc, Sail Training vessel of the Mexican Navy.
Edit: just to be clear and I will state it here, I use a perl script to pick a random picture from my gallery. And I really need to clean up my gallery to remove pics I don't like (anymore I guess), like this one...

Love the processing, the composition, and the way the tower looms over the surroundings, balanced/enhanced by the broken wall. The crow is a nice touch too.

Delighted with this - particularly as its the first time I've posted and image that I've processed this much!!!

I have been reluctant to venture into this thread since I do a lot of focus stacking (a random exposure from my camera would likely yield a very thin slice of reality). But, I just remembered that PBase picks shots randomly from my online collections each time I log on. Here is today's random selection:


A100; Sony 75-300 (300mm); ISO 400; f5.6; 1/250th

I hope that a random selection from my processed shots doesn't violate the spirit of the thread.

Cheers... Brian

Hi Brian. You are very welcome to post in here. The only rule is that the shot has to be selected at random and that there are no cheating (i.e. the first selection should be posted even if it is less than ideal ). BTW, your entry is very nice.
