      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

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.

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.

    • No I dont, if I had to estimate it I would guess in the 750 range but that is only a guess. 
    • If your interested in some actual old barn tin I can give you a contact. Just shoot me a PM. he's located in Hudson, WI
    • Weekend forcast is predicting 1-3" of snow Thursday night. For sure I will be in a tree Thursday afternoon and Friday Morning...
    • I've only played with them in the store. Guys say your ipad or phone battery gets sucked down fast so if you are able to plug them in they work great. I believe its the same camera as the one used with the LX9 (i have one) and it works great.
    • super awsome, congratulations to your young man.
    • I really like the interior. Planning on doing something similar with the barn tin in mine. Did you just pick some up off hsolist?
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge
    • That makes sense, at least it will allow us to run a 4th line vs having to play with 3 lines for an extended time. 
    • Big 10 kind of ruined college hockey for me, I still catch a gophers game now and then but its pretty rare. Barely watch sports in general any more. 
    • Outside speakers dont need to be loud to enjoy them and most dont.  Nice to have music when tending tipups on a slow mid day bite.  And great when camping.  As to the strobe, its becoming a safety concern.  There are more and more idiots driving 40+mph and snowmobiles doing 60+ and crashing on the ice.  I went with just being able to flip on our 10 marker lights but I don't mind anyone wanting to be seen.  We have blackout curtains and a strobe on top of a house will do nothing to hurt the bite.
