Actually, I think I had him, but I couldn't figure out how to post on the DISboard app at first. And compliments mean nothing, so don't bother...got it!

According to Rosie, there's a Carol.

Rosie posted when I was doing replies and messed up my page count. I saw it though, and so I edited the last post in order to finish the replies without rolling to the next page.

Not to give away your secrets, but I have a feeling you have my thread set a special way when you suspect an update is coming...true?

I really thought you had it because you were posting when I was doing the last replies before the next post. You were this close!

I am telling you Marv just waits and then pounces, me on the other hand am busy messing up Glenn's page count so I miss the update.
I did hear they were auctioning off Marv's last update as an antique writing !!!

Sorry about that. James and I were playing on the xBox for most of the day, while the ladies were away.

Yes, but it does take some time. I guess I spent a little more than an hour taking these, wandering around looking for something to photograph.

When it's that dark, it takes quite a bit of time to capture enough light so a tripod is a must. It was fun experimenting to zero-in on something I liked.

I hope you have a good trip to Hong Kong Yuki.

Thanks Mary Ellen. I know you'd have a ball seeing what photos you could get with a tripod at night around Disney. You need to set aside some time...try it at whatever resort you're at, and then move on to others if you're still gung-ho.

I'm glad you liked 'em! I thought of you when I was taking the artsy-chair shot.

Thanks Nory! It is a pain to get everything set up, which is why once I got going I tried a few different spots around the resort.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. I hope you get to do it someday; I'm sure you will.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "always test an app when death is on the line"!

No, no, no...post your Judy-count first, then come back with another post to heap praise on me.

You should pay attention to the page count, it's Marv's main strategy to timing my chapter updates. (And seems to be working.)

I had fun, and got a couple of shots that I like. It was neat to experiment...it's a little bit of trial-and-error.

Thanks Sara. Taking pictures of the giraffes was pretty cool because you couldn't see them very well without the night-vision goggles...you could tell they were there, and that was about it. But it shows how still they were being, since the shutter was open for so long and there's not very much blur.

When you have a 14 hour work day - I can now officially say I am all caught up pn the DIS.

Looks like it will be hard to catch Marv, but being next in line I guess I will be the one to do it!!!

Hey, I am good at wandering around..... Looking for something to photograph in Disney? Also pretty easy.

I have done some playing around with the shutter speed while waiting for FOLK and fireworks. Trying to get that shot and have it look great takes some practice.... and sometimes in my case a bit of luck.

Awwwhhhhhhhh!!! Those giraffes are so adorable! Just hanging out... having some 'resort time' after a hard day at the parks.

You got some really good shots!!

I really like the photo of the fire - 1 second with flash and the one with the ghost people outside.

Sounds like a fun night! I love just fiddling around with exposure on the same shot. I need a LOT more practice though

Wow, I get way too much credit around here it seems. I appreciate the compliment that you think I have some powerful DIS computer skills to set your thread a special way, but I have to admit it just boils down to dumb luck! (okay Rosie, there's your chance)

If I happen to have some time available to spend on the DIS, even when I am doing other things on the internet I will occasionally come back to the DIS and check to see if anyone has posted anything new I want to comment on or just read. I do that by using the User CP link. If you haven't done an update in a while, and you start posting replies I get a little suspicious there might be an update coming. Sometimes you hint at it with your replies to people like Rosie who ask.

The latest contest I kept seeing the same two threads pop up and then all of a sudden yours showed up with you posting, so I checked it out. Two contests ago I wasn't on the DIS at all, so you posted an update, people guessed the Judy's, you posted the results and I never even put in a guess because I had no clue you had updated until too late. Some of my earlier wins I was late to the party but nobody had gotten all the Judy's yet and I was able to swoop in late and still get the correct answer in first.

Like I said, all dumb luck......no stalking, no special monitoring or surveillance! Further proof that sometimes it IS better to be lucky than good!!

Awesome pictures!!! I love how you did so many trial and error shots to get the result you were looking for. If I had a camera with that I could adjust all those settings on, I'd probably be afraid to mess with it out of fear of screwing it up.

I really loved how you were able to get those shots of the giraffes to come out so well lit after dark.
