  1. That was one of the sites I paid for. The problem is the site eventually become unusable for me somewhere between the Yahoo and SmugMug brands buying it. It got to where it would take 2-3 minutes to load a picture and 10-20 minutes to upload one of even moderate size. Then random event albums would disappear for some period of time or entirely. I can't help but wonder if SmugMug bought it and turned it into a pile of shit since it was a competitor to their primary business. That said, I am I'm running my photoserver now but not without issues and headaches not because of the technology but because of some people want this option or don't want that option or want to do x but others want y... I'm pretty much done with it all at this point - not worth the headaches it has turned in to. I'll probably still do local events and post it to Facebook and be done with it. For the ones that want to bitch because they want other options because they don't like FB (or IG or SmugMug or my page or whatever) then fine, their problem, not mine.
  2. I just found out Flickr is deleting most of the 6,000 or so pictures I had there unless I pay more to keep them, which I am not going to do. It used to work well and then was bought out by Yahoo, then by SmugMug and somewhere along the way it turned to shit for me. It looks like all the CF3 shots have already been deleted along with about 2,000 from other albums. I've deleted everything but the remaining CF albums and shots. If anyone wants any of the old shots now would be the time to get them as I doubt I am going to go back and re-edit and re-post them someplace else. https://www.flickr.com/photos/wesedens/albums
  3. Might have been a touch of photoshop involved in the SRT part
  4. Will smoking still be allowed at CF?
  5. I was wondering about the numbers... Friday evening it sure looked like there were more cars in the lot than the previous several years.
  6. I think my favorite place to shoot is actually the entrance way to the track...
  7. Images here as I get them edited... http://www.wesedens.com/challengerfest-9/ Greg:
  8. Going to try to figure out a good place close to the hotel to shoot some rolling shots for those that want them. Looking forward to it as usual.
  9. Booked room. Need to remember to get a list of car #'s and owners so April 16 when I get the, "did you get a pic of car, the black Challenger" I'll have some idea who it is Need to figure out a good location to shoot some car shots away from the track with a scenic sort of background. Open to ideas from those in that area.
  10. Nice! Same as Greg, if I won the lottery...
  11. I've been really off and on about watermarks. On the one hand I usually don't do it for money so don't get terribly concerned about usage. On the other hand, get a little irritated when someone takes my work and plays it off as being their own or uses it for their product line without so much as even asking. I think part of the problem is there is no perceived value in an image or photography in general. I've had people ask me to drive 100 miles so I can shoot their wedding shoot for no pay or even expense compensation and in return I'll get "the experience and be able to tell people I did it..." I've had people tell me that a picture "only takes a second" so why should they pay for it. I don't even bother to explain the post processing time, the $oftware involved, the $5,000+ in gear I'm toting around, and the 30+ years of experience to the equation that apparently has no intrinsic value.
  12. Normally I do, but they are easily removed with photoshop either removing them or cleverly cropping them out. If someone wants to take the image removing a watermark is about a 10 second deal. Happens to me all the time. In the case of the photo contest I was doing the guy a favor and by providing him with a large resolution suitable for printing for free and I don't put watermarks on those that are supposed to be for personal use/printing.
