    Everytime I come here, thinking I'm going to post a picture, I see Cusco's pictures and gifs, and I'm like... I can't represent Sweden looking like this.
    Seriously, amazing pictures and gifs, love them! You really find yourself watching them over and over again.

    Thank you all for your very kind words. Import every second frame to Photoshop, lower the resolution, tweak the delay between frames to obtain appealing fluency, change to monochrome and increase contrast through Levels; that's all I really do.

    I won't post any more gifs in this thread for a while, but for those interested: Kittens!

    Cusco, you should never refrain from posting the gifs. I absolutely adore them

    Nah, I post so much that I've apparently killed the thread!

    On another note, I just want to... brag, I guess; one of my pictures got published!



    The reason it got published is that I entered a photo competition held by Mensa Sweden, some months ago, and ended up in the top 3. The three of us were published today in the Mensa Sweden magazine and are now entered to the international competition, held by Mensa International Ltd., fighting for the title MIL Photographer of the Year. This kind of makes me forget about the possibility that I failed today's exam.

    Come on now, folks; post pictures! Suit up and show us your most classy look.

    And well, because you asked so nicely

    Had to buy a new suit this year because my old one is way too big now.

    It doesn't surprise me. In fact, I expect much of your work to get published. There is an absurd amount of people who just fling around a camera and think they're photographers (oh look at this cool angle of a bug I got!!1), but very few actually have any skill in it. You're a breath of fresh air while we're all drowning in a pool of amateurs.

    And I'd post a picture of me, but I'm sick and it's too hot to wear one of my new shirts, lol.

    Destil, that's a tad bit on the big side. Try uploading it to imgur and linking one of the thumbnails.
