    NP Liz It took me a while to figure out what the problem could be myself.

    Fun photos by the way! It's nice to see the faces that go with the names. The landscapes of NY are awesome, and the photos of the QM2 Wow, that ship is Huge! Looking forward to seeing more!

    Ps

    I found that link doing a quick google search, then read it after I posted it. Disclaimer - views on the website are not necessarily the views of the one who posted it! It was the best link with a picture and a coherent explanation!

    here's 1 quick edit from sunday

    I have a few nature oriented images too, but GENE took basicly the same images.

    I'll not take his fame..... yet

    the color cast was too much for my obsenely tired eyes, so AWAY IT WENT ;)

    Ah-ha!

    Super-Lara to the rescue!

    Thanks, that makes a lot more sense. I'm kinda addicted to the Hybrid look but I'll switch over for a bit - just this once ;)

    Thanks again,

    Hey P&G

    I too had the time of my life! Would that I could make all photogatherings that fun! ;)

    I left just as the weather was getting nasty. Hey, I only promised it would be nice while *I* was there ;)

    Anxiously awaiting more pics!

    Rick

    p.s. Hope your trip back was better than the one out

    Dang.

    Shoulda snapped one off as I was standing there in BH with you

    Sounds like you guys carried on the photogathering in true fashion. I wanted to be there with you but I also wanted to get home.

    Yeah, it must've been in the 50's with rain and wind when I left. Nothing like Saturday!

    Glad to have (briefly) made your acquaintance there, friend.

    Well...

    You are a "Super Moderator" are you not? The extension just seemed natural ;)

    So, if Liz and Charles are Moderators, John is the Administrator, does that make you...

    Wink Hi Rick.....glad you got it figured out.....

    Thanks for all the good posts......I really had a good time....here are some more pics.

    42nd St. Gang
    Times Square - Projectdance.com - from across the street. They were great!
    Skyline & sailboat

    the Queen Mary - cropped to see it closer. I think Joe Mags will have some closer shots as he used his awesome 300mm Sigma lens.

    Good ones Liz!

    Your Queen Mary shot is great. By chance, did you see the shots below by Jakkar of the QM2 and fireworks that night?

    Strange thing, NO ONE IN NY knew about the Queen Mary. I asked my 2 friends who live there and my mom who's been there a few weeks and no one knew about it. I had to explain it to them. And then they all wanted to go I heard about it all the way down here in VA. It was actually a pretty big story.

    Glad you got a chance to post some more!

    Smile QM2 & QE2.......History in the making...

    Seeing the Queen Mary 2 - even from a little distance was one of my high points on Saturday. I was also jealous of Jakkar's shots. Wow! He certainly had a prime spot. I just replied to his post actually. I'm sure you know it was the QM2's maiden voyage and the QE2's last voyage. Nice piece of history.

    Gene & Penny were hoping to go to the fireworks - sounds like they had a busy day. I'm sure we'll hear from them very soon.

    thanks for the nice comments.

    Liz

    The title isn't something I chose, that's for sure. It's just part of the programming of VBulletin. Not a God by any stretch of the imagination!

    Since I dislike that title immensely, I just did a little editing and figured out I could change it without posting much of a bio. I have no real profile, yet ;) Maybe some day I'll have a camera worth shooting awesome photos like yours!

    Aw, that's a shame.

    And here I thought you were like Photo-John's boss or something...

    Can you still pick on him for me though?

    I guess I was wondering what role you play here on the message boards. You seem to pop in at just the right time - like a guardian angel - and fix problems like you did here. You have that "ethereal glow" so I thought maybe you were like the Oracle in the Matrix.
    There is no spoon.

    You can still do me a big favor though. Tell Photo-John that he owes me a picture of me holding a tarantula. If his brain's not yet fried from running this website he'll know what I mean.

    ...

    Hey flattery will get you everywhere! Thanks for the compliments but remember: any camera is just a box holding film. You can create beautiful images using an old Brownie if you want to. To me it's all about the vision.

    Rock on, Super-Lara!

    Unhappy Lara......also tell PJ something for me too....

    Ask him if he remembers the "rainbow image" when you tell him about Rick's tarantula pleeeease! And Lara, you're great - I agree 200% with Rick.

    Have a great day Rick.

    Wonder where Gene & Penny are - they must still be sleeping after those plane rides.

    I hope they made it.

    From the way they described their trip to NY I wondered if their pilot had ever flown a plane before..

    I'm sure they're spending countless hours uploading and editing NY gathering photos for us

    Yes Lara just keep nagging Photo-John for us until his head explodes ;)

    LOL Oh my goodness PJ's boss hahahahahaha no! John's the "Master of the House"
    I can pick on him for you, but it won't do any good

    I do what's called "quality control" dumb title huh? Anywho, there are several sites at Consumer Review, and If someone needs help or assistance, I'm there. Honestly, I didn't have to hang around Photography Review once I was able to guide the members with the ins and outs of new forums, but I just love it here! The people and the photography have me addicted to this site, and if I can still help with forum issues, I'm happy to do it.

    Steve has also encouraged me to stay interested in taking the plunge into the world of photography. Once I'm able to buy a decent camera, gulp, I might just post a couple of photos here. Who knows?

    Heh heh. Sounds like your an addict too ;p

    Yes I should be going to work right now but I am sitting here in front of this computer wasting away the day...

    ...sigh..

    Hey at least you're getting paid!

    Well, just becasue you're not John's boss I still think you should stick whoopie cushions under his chair and stuff. Just tell him Rick did it.

    Thanks for hanging around this site. I enjoy your presence here.

    Rick
    p.s. We'll keep our eyes open for Super-Lara pics in the future ;)

    Talking Penny & Gene......Welcome Back!

    I'm so glad you made it safe & sound. It's good you had an uneventful plane trip. You did get some nice shots from different angles. Nice & sharp! I love viewing all these shots from our weekend in NYC. Cool

    I'm grateful I was able to take the day off Saturday to meet you - and I really enjoyed our day together. Hopefully it won't be too long before we start planning another one!

    Like everyone else, I'm back to work......and trying to find the bottom of the paper work!

    Have a great week.

    Liz
