Very impressive photography.

Yes, all shot in RAW. My camera came with its own RAW processing software where pretty much all I do is set the WB, contrast, colour saturation, crop, and maybe a little with the tone curve, then covert to jpg. Most photos outside I use a filter. Mostly a CP, but when its cloudy, or the sky is too bright, I have 3 gradient filters to help even out the exposure. I love those things. The rest I do in gimp if I need to add further filters but I only do that if its necessary.

awesome pics... u know .. in the last pic the island on the horizon is so like Rangitoto in the Hauraki Gulf.. remember?

That mountain in the distance is Mt Vesuvius, the volcano that buried Pompeii in 79AD.

Temple of Romulus dating back to the 4th century still has the original bronze door and even the lock still works.

Seeing as though even 800pix wide images are being scaled smaller, I am no longer going to scale as harshly, so click on the images if you'd like to see a bigger version.

Topic February Fast Approaches... Donald Trump is being taken seriously... Should we be TERRIFIED???
Posted 26 Aug 2016 22:21



When I attempted to send a longer response, it inexplicably disappeared. Know this, there IS a movement underway in the state of Texas to SECEDE should Clinton be elected!



Disappeared? How convenient. It would have just been full of stuff about Hillary anyway, and even in this short response, you proved my point. And honestly, I dont give a rats about some movement in Texas. I was asking you why Trump would be good for America. But as history proves, you have avoided to actually answer that, again. No need to respond to this. I think you need to get out a bit, get some fresh air. This topic must be totally consuming you. Get to your GP and have your blood pressure checked. No, seriously, get it checked.

I stopped reading right after I got to part about watching the videos and not believing them. That alone told me all I need to know about the rest of your comment. When you CHOSE to disregard truth that doesn't fit with your preconceptions (the testimony regarding the REALITY of what was in her "private" emails) there is no point in discussing anything with you.

I have stopped reading most of your posts when you get all caps lock slap happy. So, you dont like Hillary. Fair enough. I dont like her either. I like Trump even less. I would not vote for either. As someone mentioned, you are more focused on her, but why would he make a better President? Hating her is not a reason for voting for the other side. You need valid reasons. So, lets hear them. Trash talking her, like Trump has been, gives you little to no credibility, whether you agree with that or not (likely not). So, what's he actually going to do to make your country a better place? Its a genuine question.

Topic Who should be the next US president?
Posted 07 Aug 2016 23:57

God help us if Donald Trump is allowed to run (ruin?) our once GREAT nation.

So, now that Bernie is out of the picture, I'm Trump all the way . I don't trust Hillary with my lunch money! She's a liar and irresponsible. I actually watched the entire RNC and was super impressed. Then I watched all those 'peace loving protesters' outside beat people up that wore Trump swag, and totally destroy a police car. Not impressed. There were more Mexican flags than American flags, and so many illegals. We're giving our country away to people freely. Every legal immigrant that has come here through the proper channels worked very HARD to get here. Why should we allow illegals to just come on in?

This is a change of heart, which you are entitled to of course. Its not like you were sitting on the fence though. But really, what is Trump going to do to make America great again?

In fact, I ask that to those who have finally put their hand up and have openly admitted to being on his side. I'm just curious. I certainly didn't notice any of you over in the other thread defending him, probably because you had no defense. Making America great again has been his war cry, but other than putting up a wall on the border of Mexico (wouldn't it be cheaper to up surveillance), and have this grand plan to wipe out ISIS (because the rest of the world is doing nothing about it), what else is he going to do? He really has no other policies. And, if Hillary is such a poor other choice, then why vote at all? I know I would not be voting. But, if voting was compulsory, like it is here, I would vote for Hillary, purely because she knows just a little bit more about politics, even if she has done all that people are accusing her of doing. Its not like Trumps track record is squeaky clean.

Anyone see the 60 Minutes interview with Chump and his running mate? It was laughable. Cringe worthy. They dodged questions and stammered their way through the ones they thought they answered satisfactorily. Trump was rude and spoke over the interviewer constantly, and all the while it was like he had a gun pointed in Pence's back to make sure he said what Trump wanted to hear, and not what he really thought. They have different views on things, that's no secret, and when Trump was asked if he would listen to the advice given to him on certain things, he said he would listen, but there is no way in hell he is going to let that alter his final decision. He's far too egotistical for that. Ego's and politics, a bad combination. He sat forward in his chair in a very defensive, passive aggressive manner. Does the world need someone like that in a position of power as high as the US President? I think the world should get to vote on this as well.

I just find it odd that a lot of people are complaining about the two nominees for differing reasons, when ultimately it was the American people who have put them there. I guess most didn't think they would need to go and vote, that common sense would prevail, things would take care of themselves. Well I just did a quick search and ball park figures showed that only 1 in 3 illegible voters nationwide got off their couches and voted. Some states were as low as 1 in 5. So 66% of the country is probably kicking itself right now.

Where the thread page count is, I'd like a "Next" button added. Clicking on the individual numbers on handheld devices can be hit and miss. At least the word "Next" is a little larger and should improve ones strike rate in getting to the next page.

Topic Experimenting with the Notifications API
Posted 18 Jul 2016 17:56

If it was limited just to lush it would be ok, but it pops up in every window I have open...

Actually, this is what the feature is made for. If you only had Lush open on one tab or browser, you would see the black box because its the only window open. If you had multiple tabs open, and Lush was one of them, you will get the extra notification on all tabs, including the Lush one, regardless of what tab you had active so you dont miss any messages. Why someone insinuated you are always logged in was because if you weren't, you would not get the notification. People read between the lines they are given. For those that dont like it, next time it pops up, click on the settings of the pop up (looks like a gear or cog) and turn it off. Its really that simple.

You!! Yes, you. The guy driving in the middle lane, not passing anyone. And you as well, yeah, the guy in front of this other asshole I am referring to. You are also just putting along in the middle lane. Get the fuck over to the slow lane. Keep left unless overtaking does not mean keep middle. If I gave you three things and lined them up in a row and asked you to pick up the one on the left, would you grab the middle one??? NO!! That's right, because I asked you to pick the one up on the left, and left is not the same as middle. Like the sign says to the keep left. Now, get the fuck over, and out of everyone's way. Its cockheads like you that piss other motorists off, and its really not necessary if you adhere to the road rules...director

Topic Chat room for transgendered.
Posted 09 Jul 2016 16:26

The best option is to create your own room, with assigned room monitors (room owner is assigned and can assign their own in their absence) and your own set of rules. Lush has tried the dedicated room thing before, like an image room which prove to be the most popular but no one used it, so it was removed. Another thing, if one was created for what ever genre, there's nothing to stop people coming in and harassing other members. There's no idiot filter, yet in your own room, you'd be able to boot these pests. And I suggest blocking anyone who does harass you.
