I'm looking at the newest additions in the database. There are some great shots from Carlos, namely the 777 at EWR getting loads of hits. Just below are about 6 of my shots, and in particular is a shot of a PAL A340. It's a nice side-on shot, but 700 hits in less than one day? Everytime I reload the page, anywhere between 10-30 hits are added to that picture. Is the photo really that popular, or is there a glitch somewhere? It's odd because it's happening to only that photo. If it is truely that popular, I'm sort of wondering why?

Regards,
Rob

Since I posted my initial message 20 minutes ago, the photo received another 120 hits. A little odd for a run-of-the-mill profile shot, don't you think?

Recently there were only 13 shots in the 24-48 section. Guess Johan's working on the site.

When you scanned it you forgot to cut the corners of the picture  Big grin

The second one that is.

He has a point Rob. Your pictures are nice, however there is a tell-tale sign that the pics have been scanned in cardboard mounts, and the corners are (rounded) black. This does in fact detract from the overall technical scan when the larger picture is viewed, and CANNOT be detected when viewing the thumbnails.

Rob makes it a point to include the edges of the slide. It's not an oversight on his part.

Rob, you told me at LAX last year why you did that...I can't remember. But I think you had a good reason for doing it. Can you refresh my memory? Keep up the good work...

There are two reasons why I don't crop out the "fuzz-frame".

A) People can clearly see without having to ask, that it's a Kodachrome slide. Only KR gives the infamous cardboard mount.
B) I include the frame because that way, you can see that I'm not "cropping" out parts of the picture. I scan and show what the exact slide looks like... if I trade or sell a photo, people will get exactly what they see... instead of being surprised by getting a picture where the plane is only 50% of the frame, but cropped to make it seem like it was full-frame. I try my best to NOT alter my photos in ANY way... and that includes cropping. I hope you understand now why I leave it in.

Thanks for the comments Mark... are you going to Mike's BBQ in August?


Regards,
Rob

That's not 100% correct Rob. Kodak gives the cardboard mounts on ANY slide. I've shot Provia (the ultimate sin!) and sent it to them. (Another sin!) It comes back in cardboard. I'm dammed forever now because of that.

I just think that the border makes the picture look like crap. You've got some nice shots Rob, but that border really detracts from the esthetic quality of the picture.

Also try brightening your pictures up a bit? It should help get rid of that greyish cast. I've found when scanning K64, a bit of brightness will make it look better.

Gee whiz, didnt anyone ever tell you guys "variety is the spice of life"?

or anyone ever ask, "what would the world be like if everyone was exactly like YOU"?

what point is photography without different styles??

Honestly, i dont really like seeing the cardboard corners, but just cuz its not my style, doesnt mean it cant be someone elses!

Its my camera, its my creativity and imagination and uniqueness at work; and i would expect everyone to respect that..

Rob,

I will be at the BBQ in August. I'll be living in Denver by then, so it will be easier for me to travel to LAX on the weekends. Starting in early November, I'll probably head out there every 4 to 6 weeks until late February/early March. (Gotta like those non-stop non-rev flights!) I hope to see everyone there!

I appreciate Rob's point about showing that nothing has been cropped out of the submitted photo and although I don't leave the border in myself I don't really have a problem with seeing it. I certainly wouldn't denounce it to the extent that others have. I will, however, second the statement that Kodachrome isn't the only source of cardboard mounts. One local lab here returns my Fuji Sensia II slides mounted in cardboard mounts as well.

Cheers,
Felix

On the topic of K64 mounts....

I was having a look at some of my folks slides from the 70's and they are all cardbord mounts - yet my latest K64 came back from Kodak in plastic perfectly square mounts... any ideas?

Bradley,

Kodak, in Europe at least, has for at ten years or more I would guess used plastic mounts, certainly for consumer films like K-64 if not for professional films too.
