Fantastic, Rich! Here's something you might be interested in. A temporary forum replacement. I just found it, in case you haven't seen it. I seem to remember you posted to the forum pretty regularly.

Good Morning Eve, Just goofing around having a little fun. Thanks for the comment. Can't believe all the hits in just a couple of hours. Hope the forum comes back soon. Have a great day.

Cheers,

Rich

Richard: By the way: Do you know, if the hits will be counted when the picture is viewed by Google Earth? In my "Florida" collection is a picture which is in GE and hit over 600 times. The other pictures (not uploaded in GE) are viewed only around 50 times.

Greetings Richard,

Great job, you can call it "Space 1999" or "Star Trek", just it is like some scenarios we saw on that TV Series.

Cheers

Very beautifully and originally! I live in the city of Syktyvkar (60 40 ' N 50 49 ' E). In Russia many untouched, wild places. In this her charm. Many thanks for good words about my photos. When an opportunity it will be obligatory I shall visit and at you. If you want to admire the nature of Russian north, address, I shall think up any route.

Richard Ryer on July 24, 2007

Greetings Ilya, I will have to be content to live your part of the world through your wonderful photographs. Your mountains are beautiful. Show me more of your Russia. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers,

Rich

Grazie per i tuoi commenti, belle le tue foto, questa è la migliore, ciao Greti.

Richard Ryer on July 30, 2007

Saluti Greti, ringraziamenti per la visita e le vostre osservazioni gentili. A volte devo usare Photoshop per rendere ad una fotografia il senso che lo vorrei essere. Quelli sono divertimento. Felice gradite l'immagine improbabile. Acclamazioni, Rich

Margherita-Italy on July 30, 2007

For kindness, what objective have you used? Ciao Greti.

Richard Ryer on July 30, 2007

Greetings MS, What a wonderful compliment! The photograph is not real. I placed a moon picture behind Longs Peak to give the illusion of the moon setting. I used PhotoShop software from Adobe. PhotoShop allowed me to layer two pictures of Longs Peak on top of each other. On the top layer of Longs Peak, I carefully cut away the sky along the ridge line where the moon would go as well as a large portion of sky. Then I took a separate picture of the moon and cut away the night sky leaving just the moon. Then I placed the moon picture between the Longs Peak layers to make it appear the moon was setting on the ridge. Just a bit of software magic. The moon is originally shot with a 400mm lens. I hope I have not hurt your feelings. I wanted to create an interesting photograph art work. Thanks for visiting.

Cheers,

Rich

Fun shot. You took what was an already great, dramatic photo, and added to it.

Richard Ryer on August 1, 2007

Greetings Hank, Thanks for visiting and the nice compliment. It's fun to play around once in a while.

Cheers,

Rich
