Congrats to Ranger Joe on the "Best" category win and to fluffybunny on the "Funniest" category win in this week's "Watercraft" theme!


Here are some upcoming themes:

4/18: Sun in Frame: Photos that include the fully or partially visible sun. Difficulty: Reflections and sunbeams are not enough. While the sun can be partially obscured (as by clouds or trees or a subjects head) it has to be visible.

4/25: Off Kilter: Show us your slant on photography. Tilt that horizon! Tweak that Vertical! Dutch up your angles!

5/2: Wow! Nice Wood!: Any and everything about wood.

5/9: Rust Never Sleeps: Photograph something rusty. Difficulty: No persons named Rusty.

Hello Farktographers! I am just popping in here to apologize for not visiting your threads more often. That off-kilter contest was magnificent. Thank you all for providing some great eye-candy.

Thanks for stopping by, DonWrite! That theme definitely delivered far beyond my expectations. Though I shouldn't be too surprised--Farktographers bring their A-game every week!

Congrats to Farktographer on the "Best" category win and to EdenLiesObscured on the "Funniest" category win in this week's "Off Kilter" theme! See everyone next week for "Wow! Nice Wood!"

Hey folks, a head's up--the "funniest" category has been put out of your misery. Enjoy the return of the single "Vote" button!

Giveaway of the Day today is InPaint v.4.3 (should pop)

If you don't know, it's basically a good clone tool for simple photo-retouching. Comments seem to indicate good software. I d-loaded the last version, but never used it, due to my affinity for Photoshop.

As usual, I have no affiliation with either company, just passing on info. Read comments before installing to see if it's right for you.

Nice!

Congrats to I'm No Big Deal and ravnostic for their tie on this week's "Farktography Anniversary 7" theme!

Heads up for this week's Scavenger Hunt theme--there are several images that dropped overnight for being too large. There was a bug discovered that was allowing images to initially post even if they were too large and would be deleted later. This has been fixed now (thanks, Mike!), but the images that have been dropped can't be restored because they're larger than the 256k Fark file size limit. They can be reposted if you want to repost smaller sizes. This specifically affects powerful katrinka (an image at 402k and an image of 266k), sleeping (an image at 273k), fluffybunny (an image at 273k), predle (an image at 297k which has been reposted smaller),Yugoboy (an image at 277k), and Mista Sparkle (an image at 332k and 800 pixels wide--Fark's limit is 640. It will physically resize, but the file size is still going to be an issue if you attempt to post large file images).

Every image that dropped was hosted at Flickr, which uses lossless or nearly lossless compression when generating its smaller sized images and thumbnails from the original files you upload. This was a change they made last year, and while it has improved image quality, it results in hugely bloated file sizes if you rely on Flickr to resize for you before posting on Fark. The easiest way to work around this is to upload a Fark sized original (640 pixels max width and 1100 pixels max height and 256k or smaller file size) to Flickr and use the "original" option from the share box on that Fark sized photo. The original is not resized/recompressed by Flickr, so you will know for sure it will work for Fark. If you want a larger-than-Fark-size version available, you can upload this separately to Flickr. When you post the Fark size version in-line for your entry, you're welcome to include a line at the bottom linking to the larger version. Hope this helps, and sorry for the folks who lost images over night!!

for anyone wandering in here these early russian photos were a form of HDR numbers 14 and i believe 20 have been used for photoshop contests.
 
  2012-05-23 08:08:25 PM
Oh wow, I hadn't seen a good number of those in that set. Some of the ones later in the list, I'd seen, but most I hadn't. Those photographs always amaze me.

Thanks Elsinore. Chalk one up for procrastination. :)

Or chalk one up for execution, regardless of schedule ;)

Go RagnarD!

And fer da restivus; Bueller? Bueller?
 
  2012-06-26 06:19:08 PM
Thank you Elsinore and ravnostic. Not sure how I managed the win... Must have been an influx of weather-weenies voting last week. Linguine's Organ Pipe and Ranger Joe's Teton shots are clearly superior. Oh, and ravnostic, your pic captures the oven-feel of this time of year perfectly. let's get that Monsoon started!

I didn't get to do the usual thread wrap up last night with the server move, so I'd like to take a moment and do that here. Since there were so many new and returning folks, I'm going to have to split it up into different posts--obviously this thread brought out the best in Farktography :)

I'd like to give a warm welcome to our Farktography First Timers Aeronut, beakgeek, larrycot, MandM, Moriel, saburai, spittman, and tgourley--it's always good to see new faces, and I hope you'll join us again next week!
 
  2012-07-01 10:36:48 AM
Also a warm welcome back to folks we hadn't seen in awhile: andyofne, Beer It's What's For Dinner, FutherMucker, Lenny_da_Hog, mkrieger, olddancingmonkey, Scentless_Apprentice, and wakitu--hope to see all of you back next week! Same bat time, same bat channel ;)
 
  2012-07-01 10:40:10 AM
And of course well done to our "Birds 2: Boidwatching" top finishers wakitu, No Such User, and bob_ross, and congrats to thread winner IncorrigibleKitty!

This was a beautiful thread, folks! See everyone next week for "Tiny...Tracts of Land"!

Yugoboy: I've been voting for a lot of your entries lately. You were born to do this.

Congrats to bender16v and U-Man on their tie win for this week's "Freeze Frame" contest. Great thread this week in general!

Wow, three way tie this week for "This Old Car'--congrats to doublesecretprobation, U-Man, and I'm No Big Deal!
 
  2012-07-29 08:00:09 PM
That's pretty damn cool. I don't remember that ever happening before.
 
  2012-07-29 10:29:22 PM

U-Man: That's pretty damn cool. I don't remember that ever happening before.



Think maybe it happened one other time, but I can't remember when. Been a looong time...BecauseISaidSo should be able to tell us when he's back at the keys.

Nope, that's a first. 19 two-way ties, but this is the first three-way. Hope it was good for all of you. ;-)

Apparently I had typed up last week's congratulations, but didn't actually hit enter (it's been a long couple of weeks) Last week was another two-way tie for the tally sheet--congrats to kestrana and CompoundWarp on this week's "Old, New, Borrowed, & Blue" win.

This week kestrana alone stands victorious--congrats on the "Chains, Wires, Cables, & Ropes" win!
 
  2012-08-19 12:07:00 PM
Ties seem to be the rule rather than the exception lately--congrats to bender16v and sleeping on their win on this week's "Reflections 4: On Reflection" theme!
 
  2012-08-23 07:18:54 AM
Anyone else having problems getting to farktography.net this morning?
 
  2012-08-23 10:35:28 AM
I just came here to ask the same thing, Barracuda Noticed it last night. At work. Also to mention I didn't get a chance to participate this week (life gets in the way), but I did take the time to do some voting last night.
 
  2012-08-23 12:49:19 PM
Me too.
 
  2012-08-23 02:41:11 PM
Yep, the site is down temporarily.  I've contacted our provider; hopefully things will be back up soon.
 
  2012-08-23 09:21:26 PM
Thanks for the update Elsinore. Been there, had that happen with my own sites, hate it when it's out of your hands and just waiting for the hosting provider to get around to getting things fixed and running again.
 
  2012-08-24 07:25:08 AM
Elsinore, looks like Google's fantastic picasa hosting has once again dropped my images temporarily or something and one of the mods deleted two of my entries. Could you kindly check if the images are still broken and undelete the posts if they are fixed? Thank you.
