its just that I take part on an urban photo forum and I'm getting used to huge threads of mega pictures!

At that forum, I actually posted 79 pictures in a single post, each the same size as those above!

If the forum admin has problems, just tell me I didnt know about pic post limits...

But TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK please!

It's just that I blieve quite a few people here are on 56k modems, so at 4k/sec that's quite a wait (it's still takes a while with my manky broadband connection :wink: ).

I don't know anything about photography, but they seem beautiful and well taken, are you a professional photographer by any chance?

No, I am an amateur, I happen to have bought an excellent Sony Cybershot 4.1 megapixel digital camera, maybe the best small non-professional camera... with a lucky blue-sky weekend... I got perfect shots!!!

Yep, nice shots and that sky is sooo blue compared to our February greys. Some clouds however do add contrast and interest as do subtle evening colours and shadows which soften modern achitechture.

I do agree, large pictures are better linked (I'm on cable so not such a problem with load times but a 56k running about 30k will get you a lot of flack) and the width has upset the page format which does annoy a lot of folk (including the BA). What you could do is use a cut down resoultion and size as a 'teaser' to encourage folk to visit the site.

No harm in being proud of your 'village' though, Go forth and spread the word!

Indeed, the width problem! Annoying! It's my first time posting pics in this forum, as I said my experiece in SkyScraperCity forums has stretched my pic posting habits... when I posted here, I thought "well, just a tiny little sample" because on the other forum, people routinely post 100-200 huge pics per thread, sometimes 600-700!!!!!
