One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I haven't taken a photo worthy of black/white simplicity in years.

This one was strong enough. For those of us who developed B/W film....

Per Ara's request (Much higher contrast):
It's just a matter of personal taste I guess.  Smiley

Amazing times indeed.

That photo was taken with a pocket camera,
albeit an incredible pocket cam.

Excellent!

Although I personally would make it a bit more contrasted to make it have a stronger character.

Great kite & great picture.

Great! Thanks Chilese!
I do think that the kite stands out better.

But, as said, it is only a matter of taste.

Beautifult kite & picture indeed!

Comparison photo added to original post.

Please click on the link and examine the 3 circular areas.

If your monitor is more than a few years old, you may have trouble

seeing the differences.

Hope this helps.  Smiley

Sorry bout that chief,

Sorry bout the fuss but until your last two demos id even tried my old sets of glasses to no avail.
Cant beat some of your time captures love the pic of your mate Ron tethered to the tent.
Again sorry,but keep em coming,anyway the mystery kept me entertained for a good while

When I replaced our several-year-old Apple monitor with

a 27" iMac, I was shocked at several of my photos now

appearing with minor lens flares, sun spots, etc.

It's the gradual decay of the monitor that fools us.

Just like when I think I still have a full head of hair.  Smiley

(a bit OT)
in my opinion... a five hardware (Monitor) is nothing with out calibration. Its like a measuring tape without (physical) units. So i calibrate mine monthly with a colorimeter (I1DISPLAY2 ).

Calibration is mandatory at a print shop and

very cool for a home setup.

There is a calibration "assistant" for Apple monitors,

although it is more limited than doing a true calibration.

Is OT short for "out there" "off topic" "off track"?
