*Package restored 1.12.07. The stock images themselves have not changed so if you already have this package you do not need to download it again.*
Fifteen river related stock photos for you all. There was some great feedback on our River sample scrap, , that I tried to do this Package even better then normal. Hope it does not disappoint after the hype.
I would have gotten this made sooner but due to changing water levels I had to wait. The high water is still a milky blue so I was not able to get a lot of deep water shots which I had really wanted to do to meet the feedback on the scrap, but the deeper shots will have to wait till the next installment.

This package is excellent, I love it and I hope you'll do more like this.
Personally I like the following images best:
pht5255.JPG - It's hard to see what's up and what's down on this one. Love the light and the shadows and those ripples on the water add a certain something.
pht5257.JPG - I think I already drooled enough over this one when it was posted as a scrap, heheh.
pht5345.JPG - Wow... I really like this one. Hard to describe why, though. I think those light effects from the water make it special. And all those roots and dead twigs.
pht6021.JPG - Yum. I can spend quite some time staring at this. I think I'll downsize and crop it a bit and set it as my wallpaper for a while. I really like the contrast between the brownish sandy color tones and those colorful pebbles. I've never seen so colorful ones.
I think this would be a great background picture for a poem submission or something like that.
pht6025.JPG - Did you turn this one upside down or what? *is confused* Anyway, I like this one a lot. Especially the reflections of clouds and sky in the water.
pht6029.JPG - I like how a lot of different textures come together on this one. The dead wood, the twigs, the water, the ripples on the sand, mud, those half burried pebbles...
Hard to believe this is actually stock. If I'd see it as a poster, or a postcard somewhere, I'd buy it.
*predicts that someone will use this as a bg for a fairy photomanip*
Well, the rest aint bad either, but those are my favs. Thought I'd post my opinion about then instead of the usual "Wow, great package!" one-sentence-comment.
Great job on this one.
6025; Yes I turned it over, I'd get too bored if I always did stock without playing around a little.
6029; People will use anything for a fairy manip background.
Well it is a refreshing change from the normal type of comments, thanks for taking the time to write it and thanks also for the fav 6029 is my own favorite, btw, was the most difficult to compose correctly and balance, it was not meant for start you can tell it does not fit in, but I was running short one photo so I put it in the pack.
you may have to give me some pointers on my oly.
i went walking around during lunch today to get some shots and they semi-sucketh.
just don't know much about all these stuuuupeeed settings!
tell me,...do you use any compression at all when you're shooting? do you save as tiffs
instead? come ooooooooon. help a brother out!
So you won't give me advice, but I got'a give you some now?
I compress in HQ or SHQ quality, my memory card is tiny I only have room for one TIFF photo on it. Been meaning to get a new card, would use higher quality if I could. Well, Your cam is the same C series as mine so I bet the operating system is pretty similar, lets see if I can't throw a few pointers your way. You cam is much better and a bit more complicated then mine, Complicated is good
First thing to learn is that your manual [if it's anything like the one Oly' gave me] is only good for looking up the definition of the crazy acronyms they use all the time so don't pay much attention, you don't need to know what 'BKT' or something means if you know what it does, read the manual once then concentrate on shooting. Next thing is that the auto shooting modes [action, portrait, ect] suck completely so don't use them they turn your photos into crap, faster to learn if you start on more complicated mores like P/A/S . I use the AE lock to control my lighting on almost every shot except for the most complicated, after some practice you should see how it effects your shots, helps a lot once you get the hang of it. I also almost always shoot with a -0.3 level of Exposure Compensation, levels things out, just hit the left arrow once while you shooting and it will set you to -0.3 [nods]
I would be clearer but it's a comment not a letter Note me if you have any questions.
