      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 .

I want to enlarge a picture for my wall collection. Do you guys like the color version or the Black and white version. There was very little PP except for some minor fill light adjustment and the bw conversion.

Any Critiques?

Black And White

I vote: BW. It has a rustic crispness ( is that even a word?) that really comes through.

Black and white. If you were to enlarge in color depending on pixals you used wouldnt it get muddy looking or not as clear. Black and white I think would be easier to enlarge.

I dont know thats why im asking.

Eitherway. I like the black and white same reasons stated above

I was looking at the color again after reading that last post and I have decided to repost a differetent pic in color and see what you guys think of that one. I may have goofed up the color a little bit.

I still like the B&W version best as well. However if you're looking for something different, you could try doing most of the picture in B/W and then using a faded green for the scrubby bushes - I don't know how to do that, I'm sure it's a photoshop process. It would give you a completely different look. I think it's a technique that can be overdone, but it might be worth a try. That or a sepia tone might be interesting too - Just a thought - very nice photo though, no matter how you print it, the composition is excellent!

BTW - how DID you get those horses to line up like that????

I didn't have to line them up. They are wild and I just happened to look up and boom there they were hanging out on top of the hill. These wild mustangs roam freely through out the park.

I'll also agree with everyone and go with the black and white. Beautiful picture by the way!

looking at the pictures all over again...the BW still....the second look makes me realize that it's not just the color contrasts as much as it is what you notice with the BW....take a look at the two...when I tried to figure out what was so different I realized that with the BW you can notice how the horses from the top of the hill down to the bottom line up in the so called "pecking order" of things.....which you can understand better with the BW which just adds another facet to the photo...just something I noticed which added to my original thinking of the BW being a better photo

Of the two shown, I agree with the B&W, but Jackie may be on to something with a sepia tone.

My first thought of the B/W was old time cowboy movies, Geronimo, John Wayne, Indian ponies, all those great Saturdays spent at the movies.

    • My brother and his friend shot two birds yesterday in Wisconsin in the snow.   I will be leaving for SD next week Wednesday.   Local city birds were out and about with some strutting just before our big snow storm here, haven't seen them since. 
    • MN DNR regulations only say the largest size to use is #4.   So #9 should be legal.   From what I have read on the turkey forums I follow where lots of guys pattern test shells, the TSS loads in #7 do not perform as well as the previously best loads (for 20 gauge) which is Federal Heavyweight #7.  Unfortunately Federal stopped making the HW shells when they switched to TSS.   The few guys who have found TSS in stock in #9 though are reporting very impressive patterns though, far superior to TSS #7.  
    • Enough of the suspsense AS. We need the story!
    • I also missed!  Thinking late may be the key to success.  The early bird gets the worm, but I get the bird:-). I’ll PM... hopefully.
    • I wont get out till Sat morn we shall see how it goes
    • Yikes! I think I see a gobbler track in the mud right before that blood trail starts. Hope everything turned out positive. Looking forward to pics.
    • I thought I would add some pictures. This is a 2013 frame from CW welding I believe. Yours might be a little different if it is from a different frame company. I started by blocking the house up and I removed the tire. The first time I ever did this their was almost no grease on the pivot at all. I bought this frame from a salvage auction after the house burned down. I am not sure if they did not grease it enough the first time or the grease got hot and ran out when the house burned down. This time when I took it off plenty of grease was still on the pivot and I could have got by another year without greasing it.   You can see the bolt you need to remove on the outside of the pivot.  Then cut the zip tie off to pull out the extra wire.  The whole arm will then slide off if you leave slack in the cables. I put a floor jack under the hub to make it easier. Then clean everything up and grease it.
    • Beautiful bird there Wallydog. Congrats
