    Rare sighting of a pair of graceful Sea Antelope.

    Amati was recently asking about using an image editing program to do things like put a head on a different body.

    So I was viewing the Video Link Discussion this morning and I watched the links Ryan referred to and tried some of it out. Turns out it's easier than I thought. I'd been able to do some rougher attempts at dropping one pic into another by "selecting", but pasting the whole image in and using the erase tool to take out the background yielded much better results (at least with images that don't have a solid edge).

    I really lose track of time when I start into something like this.

    You've posted some very cool manipulated photos, Jim75. Love 'em! This statement of yours is exactly why I don't pursue this kind of creativity. It's way too much fun for me and I can get lost in it for hours...days, even. Ditto for basic video editing (iMovie). Absolutely love to do that kinda stuff.

    Thanks tutusue. Yup, one minute your adjusting and experimenting and next thing you know 3 hours have slipped by.

    I'll bet video editing is a blast. In the past I've considered getting one of those digital videocams with the 3 color chips that'll take documentary quality movies. It's been a couple of years since I looked into those, so technology may have moved beyond that by now. So often you see amazing things that just can't be captured with a still camera.

    Do you know if they've made consumer level videocams that shoot hi-def?

    I went through and picked out a handful I really like, but there are lots of other excellent shots too.

    Great shot. I forget how sometimes black and white is 'just right' for a particular photo.

    Twilight photos are some of my favorites. The cloud cover reallys adds to this one.

    Dunno about consumer hi-def but I do own a 3CCD Panasonic camcorder and use it for work. My "work" is viewed by directors and producers and all have remarked on the high quality of the video...altho' the camera operator leaves a lot to be desired! Those cameras have really come down in price and I highly recommend them.

    Do you have webspace? If so, simply upload your photo(s) there and then paste the URL(s) in the reply box. Then make sure each URL is surrounded by IMG tags.

    If you don't have webspace, you can upload your photos to www.imageshack.us

    Thanks, Jim75.

    That was a GREAT sunrise, I will never forget it.

    I like the almost "other planet" atmosphere at the top of Haleakala, and I think that shot caught it just how I wanted.

    I use the Kodak site to store my photos. It provides a URL but it doesn't seem to work with HT.

    WindwardOahuRN, when you go to post a reply and try to put in a photo are you using the little photo insert icon , if so be sure to delete the http:// that shows up in the little rectangle before you paste in your complete url to the pic.

    If you trying to write the html into the text this links to a page of info that is quite helpful

    Magic Island in the background.





    "Directions:

    From Waikiki get on Ala Wai Blvd., turn right on McCully Street and head towards the mountains. You will cross a bridge over the H1 Lunalilo Freeway, after the bridge turn left onto Wilder Avenue. Drive northwest and turn right on Makiki Street, at the 1st set of lights. Follow Makiki Street up until you come to a Y and then take Round Top Drive the rest of the way. You will end up going past the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl and will come out into the business district of Honolulu."

    Auntie, how about posting that photo showing yourself in the mirror of you car? That's a cooool shot too!
    In the meantime, here's a couple from yesterday. This one shows three guys fishing off a ledge where fisherman frequently getting washed off by waves:



    I love this place for bodysurfing, with the waves bouncing back and forth off the cliffs. I imagine most folks know where this is:

    Great shots, LikaNui! I was studying your earlier pics of the bay. That's an amazing boat you've got. I have limited knowledge about boats and I was curious as to whether you could take a boat like yours across the channel to Molokai or Kauai. I suppose it depends on the winds. I've been on several catamarans on snorkeling/whale & dolphin watching tours. It's pretty hard to top being in the ocean on a boat with the warm ocean air and sunshine.
