Gibbons Creek Reservoir

I'm a fan of skies. I actually took a few of these, so you may see a few more that seem awfully similar.

You're welcome! :) I made it into the second round but I was near the bottom, I think. I'm just glad you love this one.

Yeah, there were a couple other silhouetted sky ones in there too near the top. Oh well. Better luck next time! Yeah, I like it. ;)

At least I tried, right? I normally don't even try because I think there is no chance of winning. But I'm changing my outlook to a "try anyway" mentality. :happybounce:

I use smaller apertures for my silhouettes. :nod:

That means larger f-stops right? And larger field of depth? How long did you expose this one? Checking the cam info.... 1/1250? Ooh that's quick. And you fibbed, it says you used F/13, that's not really all that small of an aperture. :shrug:

But yeah, it is really gorgeous. And yeah, I've got the perfect spot on the wall for it too. :D Do you have a poster size resolution image you could upload to the print shop? I would buy one in February. :D

It's no fib. Compared to 5.6, yes it is. ;) The "higher the number" the "smaller" the aperture. ;) The lower the number the wider the aperture.
I've never considered selling prints. :?

Okay :D no problem I believe you :) I just couldn't remember.

I wonder if anyone ever actually sells prints - IDK - you have to have a lot of page views and watchers to sell prints I think.

I'm sure many people sell prints successfully on dA and other sites too. :) I like to print my photos for myself, but other than a family member, no one has requested a print before. :omg: This particular image is 20"x20" in size though. I'm not sure if any prints would actually sell, but I would consider making an exception for you. ;)

Well maybe they do, but I have no idea how to get that kind of exposure here on DA. I only have like 4k pageviews after a year and a half of being here. I'm not popular enough to sell prints at a reasonable rate. I wish I had more visitors, but I don't know what to do to get them. :/

Thank you for offering! I may ask again when I am a little less broke. :)
