    Nicely done. I typically size my landscape images to a 750 width. If they are portrait orientation, I use 640 x 480, with the 640 for height. What camera are you using?

    Alright, another Nikon shooter! I knew there was something about the pictures. ;) You do a great job with the FE-2. I will warn you though, when you switch to digital, you will shoot a lot more pictures. The nice thing is you can experiment away without burning film to do it.

    Nice! I know there are quite a few fans here of both the Mustang and the 109. Good choices for posting.

    Thank you!
    I did not know what kind of results I would get until I saw the picture from the lab and I exclaimed myself " Je l'ai eu !" I got it!
    I don't have a web site, so I spread my pictures along with these messages.

    You don't need to repost those. All people have to do is go back a page in the thread.

    I had erased them by mistake, and then later I could edit my messages and put them back.
