CHRLZ.....

I am very upset.

Your welcome thread is much bigger than mine.

Kind regards

I know a few aussies who can easily reverse that IQ trend... :D

And WN, I'm sorry - I'll come over and make a few more comments on your thread... hey wait, isn't soliciting against the rules? - I don't want to get in trouble almost on my first day!!

For now, I want to start browsing over the forums to see where tossing my hat will be most useful.. And being terminally lazy (as we all know, laziness is simply the highest form of efficiency..), I'll be happy to hear any recommendations - like I said, I particularly enjoy photographic analysis..

again, thanks for the lovely reception, folks!

Did I just make your thread bigger CHRLZ?

Hey WN.. As your wife says, It's not the size that matters right...

Yeah I get that same feeling too chrLz, thing is I stole this name from ATS to discredit some dude from being too cool and I intend to discredit him via making him look like trouble.

I even sign off the same way.

Glad to see you on the boards and I'm sure we'll see more soon enough!!

@|exx
every bit counts, I reckon.. so I appreciate your lengthy vertical avatar, for obvious spatial reasons...

@m0r
I know that guy!! He wasn't so bad, in fact I think he might even *approve* of your emulation here, given his sense of humour...

BTW, I havta say, as a Goon afficionado, I can't read your threads in anything but a whiny Spike Milligna voice. :D

At one stage I was contemplating being a Grytpype Thynne, but there were too many 'connotations'..

dang. used to be able to directly link.. I'll set up a more usable repository later, but for now if you're still keen, try:

Hi chrlz, thought I'd pop in here to say hi.

I didn't have much luck with that photo either, though it's probably because of some security settings on my PC as opposed to a problem with the site.

But I had no problem viewing the image of Milla over on why not?'s introduction thread ;)

No wonder his thread is bigger! :)

Glad to see you here mate!

Thnaks Arb, and it's great to see you here too.

As I said elsewhere, I think it's about quality not quantity, so I've decided to take a stand... Rather than post gratuitous, hit-seeking female images, I'm going to return to the topic (which for introductory threads should surely be about the person and their environment..) and so, here's another attempt to post that image:
Image
(note - is it not possible to get scroll bars on images? It's obviously *much* wider than that!)
Here's a direct link, anyways, so you can see the whole thing.
http://chrlz.webuda.com/examples/surfers.jpg

Technical details - Fuji s9500, +1EV, tripod, ~1/250 f8, ISO 100, rather dull day, near Currumbin Queensland (looking across the bay to Surfers Paradise/Broadbeach), 11-image montage. The original image at full-res is MUCH larger (I like doing big montages and panoramas...)

I shall return later and post some more images of my 'backyard'. I realise this will not redress the injustice of thread length, but it is time to walk the high road, I think...



PS - if anyone would like to post some images of their surroundings or favourite spots, do feel free to add to this thread... :P

hahaha, well in reply to that, i did say in my OP that im a sci fi fan and sci fi is what got me interested in ufos, paranormal etc, so i have stuck to the theme with my "gratuitous ladies", and you really really dont want to see pictures of my "backyard" as Hull is not quite on the same level as surfers paradise, in fact you really dont want pictures of the freezing cold muddy brown water of the river humber etc! lol

thanks

Fair enough! Although sometimes the most boring locations can produce the best images, if you look carefully...

Oh, and now that both Fifth Element *and* Serenity have been represented in the image contest, i think the main bases are covered. (Hmm - Barbarella? :D)

Lovely shot of the bridge by the way..

I wasn't going to play the Queen card too early, but since you mentioned it here you can have her adorn your nymph bare wall in this thread.

No sorry, I'll see if there’s a phpBB mod for it.

For now, images scaled to 640 pixels wide work well with the formatting.

Dat's a shame. I specialise in panoramas, like this'un, of the city nearest my back yard..:
Image
640 pixels just doesn't cut it on that sort of thing... :( For anyone who would like to see the 'real' thing , here ya go:
http://chrlz.webuda.com/examples/panorama_5000.jpg
Note - it's only about a megabyte, but that jpeg is 5000 pixels wide.. (if you load it in your browser and it scales to fit, click it - and then scrolll around a bit..) The full version, btw, is about three times bigger again...

I actually don't like that image much - I will be talking to the Brisbane City Council about getting them to light up that parkland area a little bit :), so it doesn't have the dark splodge in the middle of shot.. But it gives an idea of what I play with in my spare time..

Stitching images is fun! (sorta).. :D
