    My first go at CiC picture post

    This photo was taken in 2005. We had a bad drought and the paddocks that are normally green ended up looking like the red centre of OZ.

    EOS3 70-300 Usm lens @ 70 Fuji Velvia sorry did not make a note of aperture and speed Late afternoon late Feb. Comments please.

    I like the colors - the contrast between the blue and orange, very nice. Personally, with this type of shot I would try to avoid this amount of empty sky. Empty sky is boring, so I'd put more ground in the composition. I think if you crop out something between 1/4 - 1/3 of the height of the photo from the top, it gets better. I'd also crop out around 1/4 of the width of the photo from the left, where there is no fence, and nothing interesting happens. And now that you've got it digital, I'd also apply a touch more contrast and sharpening.

    I tend to agree with Agata. I think it needs some focal point of interest. As it was a drought, perhaps a worried looking farmer leaning on the fence looking at the fields. Something like that? Whenever I take any shot I always ask myself before I press the shutter "What is really of interest here, and am I giving it enough impact?"

    I can't see it any more. Delboy can't have removed it as there is no 'edited at' line. It's gone the same way as the squirrel? The skull is not for hire, he's my friend!

    Niether can I, this looks like it was just a CiC attachment, rather than an album image, although concievably it was an album image, but maybe the album has been deleted?? (clutching at straws)

    No time to investigate now, although I have edited the post.

    Hi Delboy,

    Did you accidentally do anything that might explain this? (OMG That's sounds far more accusatory than I intend it to )
    e.g. Edit the first post in anyway, or delete an album or image in an album?

    We've had similar problems with disappearing images before, as per Steve's link, but I'd just like to rule out the obvious causes first, as I've already made one mistake like that

    Can you remember if it was an album image or an attachment?

    Thanks,

    Hi Dave

    The error was caused by me, Playing with the Forum to get used to it I accidently deleted the album. Not a problem that photo was not my best and I will in the future send some of my other photo's I have taken.

    Thanks for all the comments

    Delboy.

    Ah, that explains it, thanks for letting me know.

    I'm going to close this thread as there's not point in discussing the (missing) image, or reasons for disappearance further If you did re-instate the image in an album, I can open it again.

    Cheers,
