Two very apt images for this months theme Peter. Must admit prefer the 1st one instead.September 12, 2014 at 9:01 am #7694
Good interpretation of this month’s theme to get us started, Peter. I particularly like the graphic and tonal simplicity of the second shot.September 12, 2014 at 11:19 am #7695
The second shot is brilliant Peter because you can clearly see the pilot and cockpit interior. Excellent stuff!September 14, 2014 at 10:53 am #7720
And now a high one for a change!September 14, 2014 at 10:56 am #7722
3rd image seems to be compressed – can anyone tell me how I stop that from happening when I post the link from flickr?

IAN or JOHN will explain exactly—-I think the problem is that Flicker only uses 5mb of photoinfo—any thing larger is compressed. But best check with the experts.September 14, 2014 at 4:30 pm #7724
Can’t help with the compression problems Peter. But would like to say a stunning image.September 14, 2014 at 5:21 pm #7725
Peter >>> The image you posted has “width=1024” and “height=609”, which I guess may be the full sized version of your image on Flickr. It will compressed laterally if viewed on a screen smaller than 1024 wide (e.g. an iPad)
To make sure this doesn’t happen use a smaller size, as follows:
In your Flickr Photostream, click on the image to open it on its own page. Under the picture at the bottom right there’s a rightward-pointing arrow: click on it to open the Share options. Select the HTML radio button. Then click on the upper box pull-down to select the size: select Medium with longest side either 500 or 640. Then select and copy the HTML code that appears in the lower box. Use this to paste into the “Insert Image” dialogue in the Forum Editor.
Images with longest side less than 650px won’t get rescaled in peculiar ways. (I hope!)September 14, 2014 at 6:46 pm #7726
From Ian”s point that your image is 1024 on the longest side Peter–my guess- and you will know–you downloaded a much bigger size which Flicker has compressed to 1024 its largest size. Would be interesting to know the image size you downloaded. Now if you have Flicker Pro–they will retain your original file size, there is a facility to prevent public lifting your image at full size though.—–They are all stunning class photography. The second in particular as clearly you were panning and to keep the plane inframe perfectly with no second chance is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.—-That”s why much to the annoyance of some people I might add–that I do winge when”Judges”-with so little understanding of the skill required, do at times mark simple snapshots higher due to some pictorial appeal. VIZ—-however large your image is when down loaded to Flicker–1024 is the largest size stored on FFFFFlicker unless you have Pro.September 14, 2014 at 6:56 pm #7727
Ken >>> I think Peter reduces the size of his pictures before he puts them on Flickr.
For the record, I have a free account. (I cancelled my paid-for Pro account when Flickr changed their terms and made it not worth paying for a Pro account.) You can store upto 1 terabyte of files, and there’s no limit on file size. I put the full-size jpegs on Flickr.
(You can prevent downloading on a free account, or limit the max download file size, but I don’t bother. Indeed, I used to give my photos a Creative Commons Share-Alike license, though since I switched to a free account, I’ve left them with the default standard copyright.)September 14, 2014 at 7:02 pm #7729
Quite agree Ian–but whatever large file size is going to be compressed by Flicker –unless you have Pro.September 14, 2014 at 7:21 pm #7730
Ken >>> Image files on free accounts can each be up to 200Mb, and the original jpegs are stored on Flickr uncompressed:
