    Consider this area as the white room for your photography. A place to be contemporary or traditional with your style. This is not just a place for pictures of the flora and fauna within your tanks, this is a place to share picture of anything related to our interest. It could be pictures of the glass products used in or outside your tank, your scaping tools, Co2 regs, anything. A place to share inspiration. It could be rock formations by the coast, moss covered rock and wood or forest and mountains scenes. What ever you see and how ever you see it! However you feel you want to us to see how you see things, this is the place to do it. We are all creative people, so show how creative you are in any way you feel fit.
    The collage above is a small collection of some pictures i have taken with the above in mind.

    There is no point in posting out of focus pictures or over dark shots due camera flash.
    When taking pictures as a general rule, you will need to steady the camera with a tripod or flat surface. You will also need to turn off your built in camera flash.

    To post a picture please use a picture hosting site. I personally http://www.imageshack.us/ .Click on the browse tab, and select the picture you want. Then check that the image resize is set to 640x480(For message bords) and the box is ticked. Then click "Host It".
    When its uploaded you will see a preview of your picture. Highlight the code in the box that is indicated as (( Hotlink for forums (1) )) . Paste this into your post, and hay presto, job done.

    Remember be creative, think inspiration and try looking at things in a different light.

    I personally look forward to seeing you photographs.

    Have fun,
    Graeme.

    White text on a pale blue background?

    Impossible to read!
    Can you change it?

    Well yes, I did realise that, but why should I have to change my style because some person thinks to post in silly colours?

    The administrators know what styles are installed and should just be posting using standard colours?

    The poster can easily edit their posting and put it right. :p

    I'm sure Graeme can answer for himself but i have to add that that is the greatest picture i've seen from a "none-pro", stunning.

    Here is a picture from my 250L tank.

    [​IMG]

    The frog is a male Dwarf African Frog - Hymenochirus boettgeri, about 2" long.

    The guys was singing away quite obvious to me trying to take a photo. So I was able to take quite a few on Macro mode.

    The duckweed gives just the right hint of the sense of scale with out making him look tiny.
    :D

    Yuch. You've altered the gamma level.

    I prefer my version. Yours is way too dark. :D
