That Whole Judging Poll Thing, Eh...

Might be complicated by the fact that Flickr has now provided a New! Improved! viewing page. The process I've been using to post Pic'o'Day photos used an option available to me on Flickr to 'View All Sizes' which then allowed me to pick the size I wanted to view, and provided the html coding to display that size photo as the required link back to Flickr. The required link back is in the Flickr user agreement. The photos posted elsewhere must refer back to Flickr, eh?

However, the New! Improved! View All Sizes does not provide this handy html coding as it currently displays. Maybe this is upgrade bug not worked out, maybe this is Flickr limiting how their users may display their own work elsewhere than Flickr. Maybe it is browser specific, and Flickr simply doesn't like Google Chrome. I've only looked at the new layout using Chrome, so far.

However, we shall see what we may do, using the previous postings as an example to code the picture to be posted.

As of today, two days after the meeting, I still don't know how this one rated because the score sheets are not published to the NCFPC web site yet. I do have other news to report, but we're going to go right on to the test of the poll, providing you the viewer with the ability to 'judge' this photo... I hope. If it works, though, I may put the poll behind a cut as well during future Pic'o'Day posts. And, I expect this won't be a daily thing (the poll) as it took ... well, not hours but some time to generate the poll and the pic links and such.

At the top of the pic is a button what says "Share This". Click it. It offers you many options, one of which is "Grab the HTML". Click that. Poof! HTML code without doing the "all sizes" thing.

Also, below the box with the HTML code in it that appears after you have done the clicking instructed here is a drop-down menu to allow you to select the size you want. Personally, I would have put it above the HTML box, but nobody asked me!

Thanks. Obviously, I've not played enough with the new setup.

I love the colors and the idea of the silhouette. But the silhouetted object is not in focus, and because of the possibly longer exposure, the fish are blurred due to motion. This would not matter, however, if the silhouette were crisp and sharp. I also kind of wonder about the angle on the ledge at the bottom, I'm thinking I would crop that to be level in post.

THESE ARE JUST OPINIONS though and I have never been judged on my photography!

All valid. Cropping the ledge to level puts the silhouetted otterz way over on an angle. Better (were I to do this again) to compose for a level ledge.
