      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Even though there wasn't much of any light to work with,I enjoy using the new lens so much I just take it out and shoot it even in poor conditions.

I couldn't get close to anything but plants and Finches!

The images are all from the Canon 30D,70-200 F2.8L IS @AV 2.8 Various Time Values. Extremely small amount of PP.

Buds from the Crabapple trees I planted last weekend

Iowa's state bird-too far away!

Finally,this is one of the reasons I love this lens-not much for comp,but this is a 100% center crop!! A little grainy of course,but I was suprised how it looked!

Those look great! I'm really glad you like the 70-200mm! Especially the f2.8 is where it becomes very handy in low light!

Really liked the 4th one. Very nice! Sharp! \:\)

Gotta love them finches. Even though the first one was "too far away", I really like it as an environmental shot. Although close up shots are nice, there are times I prefer to see the bird in it's surroundings, like this time.
