Looks good to me Gary,

I don't know which method of upload you used but you did fine. There is a Sticky in the FAQ's forums on using Photobucket and one for Album loading from the forum. If you haven't found them take a look but I believe you have.

This is a good thread to talk about anything you might have questions about with photography. My short coming is editing, I am easily confused with edit programs so many of my pictures come strait from the card to the post. We have some members who are photo finishing masters and lots of folks with different lens and types of cameras. I use a Nikon D80 that I got back when they were the hot setup, which one do you have?

Nice Shot,

Ard

Iam the same as you Ard, I dont have a good grasp on the editing programs yet. Like I said earlier when I did my photography course it was through work so I could take crime scene photos. We were trained for taking photos in all lighting conditions and how to play with flash or take extreme close ups of things like fingerprints, but editing programs are not part of it. So I guess I got the meat and potatos of photography but it would be nice to learn some more of the editing stuff to make my photos better.

Picture I took of St Mary's Lake in Glacier National Park. I played with it a bit in the editing just to get the colors to pop.

Hi Ard,

Glad you like the pic and thanks for everyone's input on uploading photos.

The camera body is a Nikon D60. I use an editing program called the GIMP from a Linux OS. Your imagination is about the only thing to hold you back. There is a book (really) called Grokking the Gimp. A must if you want to get your arms around how the concept works.

Gary

p.s. Sure beats the HOURS spent in the darkroom!!!

Hello all,

I'm looking for recommendations on a basic waterproof point and shoot camera for capturing my fishing catch and release photos. I checked out the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS25 16.1MP 8X zoom and that goes about $150 after tax.

That camera looks pretty good, it's waterproof, shock resistant, and even has basic video so it would fit what I'm looking for. I'll want to be able to upload the photos on line but I think that's pretty easy these days, right?

Not being an expert in photography, a point and shoot that I could dunk in the water at times is what I'm after. $150 is more than I was hoping for, anyone have other ideas that would meet the goal but come in under $100?

Dave

I think that if you shoot for under $100 there will perhaps be some performance issues, I don't know this as a fact but if you seek waterproof and etc. it could be true. I have one of the Lumix cameras. The only thing I found that is a negative is that when you use the 4X zoom the photo quality is not great. At the wide angle setting they are very sharp but when zoomed mine needs to be held very steady or there will be blur.

I was actually after the Pentax all weather camera but they were sold out. I needed a camera for guided trips so I took the Lumix as a 'better than nothing' choice. Thus far for doing underwater fish pictures and the standard happy angler with caught fish photos it is fine. I have seen some P&S cameras that take great photos but I have a Nikon D80 SLR with some good lens's so if I really want great pictures I take and use that camera.

For the money the Lumix will get it done.

Ard

Thanks for the input Ard. I'll keep a watch on the Lumix to see if I can get it cheaper, otherwise it sounds like a good option.

Dave: Here is a Pentax W3 waterproof/shookproof camera for $199 with free shipping. I have the older version, my wife has this model, both cameras are amazing.
