Great news here.... My Canon 50D is in!!! I will be picking it up on Wednesday (my next day off) so my future entries should hopefully be better. I am so excited. I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow, but I do.

That's awesome, it's always fun to get some new gear :) I'm trying to think about what to shoot today, my press pass didn't pan out so no body worlds for the inside out for me. It would have been awesome though. I have another idea though that I can try and get.

Hey guys I've been sort of inactive for a little while but I've been checking in now and again and never saw anything about leagues starting back up again. Is this in a different location like when the leagues ran the first time? I'm in Portland so when I saw Northwest I came into this thread to see what it was and lo and behold theres a league going. How far into to it are you?

Thanks so much. I did shoot something over the weekend that I really don't care for. I have something planned for this afternoon....but if that doesn't pan out I will use what I shot over the weekend. I'll post what I shot this weekend on the other site.

Thanks for the condolences everyone. I looked into getting the D300 yesterday (hopefully the metal body will protect the camera from all the horrible environmental conditions I seem to expose my cameras to), but technical difficulties ensued. Now I'm wondering if I should get the 50D instead. Either way, B&H is closed for the next ten days due to the holidays, so unless I buy online (not sure if that would really be faster), I'll have at least 10 days to decide!
10/14/2008 05:24:13 PM · #259
Ok, I have my final shot up and entered....Looking good over on our site!
10/14/2008 06:58:10 PM · #260
I posted an edit (it's entered) but I'm really not sure about it. It's got some .JPEG artifacts so I'll re-edit with the fullsize (I locked myself out of my dorm room, bleh, so it's just edited from the file on flickr) and save using the GIMP which saves for web better than Photoshop does.
10/14/2008 08:10:08 PM · #261
I have one that I took for the inside out. I am about to post it on our place to see what you all think.
10/14/2008 08:24:00 PM · #262
Re-edited, take a look!

Yomi -- I love yours! It's so funny.

My daughter didn't think it was too funny though. ;) I had to distract her with some backyardagins and cheetos just to keep her away from my tripod and everything.

So is it too late to join this team for the league? I know it would be if it were like last dpl season but this seems to be sort of like the first dpl seasons where its sort of off site. I haven't entered a challenge in a while. I think almost every entry of mine in the past was shot in auto and edited in jpg in sRGB with elements 5.0. I now shoot in manual in raw and edit in CS3 with prophoto colorspace. I am also getting much better at controlling light and using mixed lighting. If I can't join and enter challenges as part of the team could I be part of the team as a helper for critiques and input?

Unfortunately, the team is full and no one can be added after the start... however, if it is ok with the rest of the team I'll invite you to our flickr group where you can critique and give us some input. I'll need your email address in order to invite you to the group, you can PM me. Penny
