I tried uploading the last one by clicking on to the icon above but it had a strong Blue hue, If you click on the image it will open in Flickr and give the true colour

Ian would know better than me but I guess that has happened because you uploaded from Flickr. That is neat but it navigates you away from our site. I think Ian was looking onto how to get the images from Flickr, in the meantime it would be better to start with the image on your computer.December 7, 2016 at 8:16 pm #12928
To put a Flickr picture in a post here, you don’t have to use the uploader. Instead, open the Flickr page for the image you want to upload, and then click the ‘Share Photo’ arrow from the icons at the bottom right, below the picture (i.e. the third one in the little row of four icons).
This will open the dialogue, and you then select ‘BBcode’ in the row at the top .
Click the lower of the two long rectangular boxes, and select ‘Medium 640 x nnn’ or Medium ‘nnn x 640’, depending on orientation. The actual number indicated by my ‘nnn’ may vary according to the size of your picture, but just pick the item for ‘Medium’ that has 640 on longest side.
Then select all the text in the upper long rectangular box, and copy it. Paste it into your post. Notice that there is a link in between a pair of ‘img’ square brackets: the brackets at the beginning have ‘img’ in them, and the ones at the end of the link have ‘/img’. Delete everything before the first ‘img’ square bracket and after the last set, leaving them and the text of the link between them intact.
When you press ‘Submit’, the code display your picture with longest side 640px.December 7, 2016 at 8:46 pm #12931
Just for completeness:
You can put the URL (i.e. link) to any actual image file into the uploader’s ‘source’ box, and set the size in Dimensions. So, you could put the URL that I mentioned in the last post – the one between the pair of ‘img’ square brackets. Or you could put the actual URL of any image on a web page (which you can often copy by right-clicking on the image and selecting from the context menu that appears).December 8, 2016 at 12:54 pm #12979
I uploaded the image first by using the upload icon, this turned out bluish. This was deleted. I then opened the image in Flickr and copied the URL and pasted it onto the forum page. It was not sized for the forum as it was already a PDI size, which is maybe a little too large.
The previous upload of the colour version of rugby players is not the true colour palette, it looks washed out as compered to the original as seen belowDecember 8, 2016 at 2:25 pm #12982
I just uploaded this photo from my PC and it initially came up with a transparent blue layer over it. But then it cleared and it looks fine now. The back lit flowers caught my eye, then I thought the stones made a great frame.December 8, 2016 at 3:40 pm #12987
Peter >>> The ‘transparent blue layer’ is what you see if you select the photo on the editor page by clicking on it. Click a white area off to one side, and that disappears.December 8, 2016 at 3:50 pm #12988
Wallace >>> The colour palettes of your two rugby pictures do look to be quite different. Is it an issue to do with the colour space getting changed when you imported one of them into Photoshop (or saved one from Photoshop)? There are, as you know, options that import/save with the embedded colour space, if there is one, or switch to ProPhoto RGB or Adobe RGB or sRGB, depending on your settings. (And the bigger Adobe and ProPhoto colour spaces look ‘flatter’, if I recall correctly.)December 12, 2016 at 7:47 pm #13140
Now it’s time for something completely different with my wacky wide angle lens….
Love them or hate them you can’t ignore them or say they’re not a bit different.December 19, 2016 at 9:31 am #13200
Here’s a few more photos where the shapes dominate. I hope members will find these a bit more interesting. Any constructive criticism is welcome.December 24, 2016 at 8:55 am #13246
Some adventurous shots there, Peter. It is exciting to see the distortions you get with a really wide angle lens as you peer through the viewfinder and it is easy to get carried away and forget that some form is needed in the photograph.
The use of the fencing as a frame works because of the big depth of field – it is still in focus despite being really close.
Tilting the horizon can be effective too, but it has to be really noticeable – otherwise it will look like a “mistake”.
These photos illustrate these points very well.December 25, 2016 at 9:31 am #13259
Thanks very much for your comments John. The wacky wide angle lens does produce a lot of distortion, but I try to use that for effect. It certain sees the world in a different way and for me puts some fun into my photography. Like you say if your going the twist your camera make it dramatic otherwise it looks like a mistake.
