      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 .

OK I'm new to this, other than the few fish pictures I've posted on this HSOforum. I just got this Canon Powershot sx100 and love it. I'm still learning the photo game. I shot this pic today at the boat landing after fishing for a few hours. The temp was 24 and my fingers were totaly numb.I thought the ice pattern hanging off the tree roots looked cool.It's just a reminder that winter is very close by.

C&C welcomed

bassn, cool! Thanks for coming in and playing with us. Cold fingers are just par for the course for a photographer in November. gringringrin

It's a nice picture. If the ice patterns were what you wanted to emphasize, a closer shot without a lot of the surroundings would have made that ice the center of attention. smilesmilesmile

I was going to say what Steve said, also pushing the camera button half way down while pointing it at the ice would have locked the focus at that range. While still holding the button half way down you could have then re-composed the scene and pushed the button all the way down to take the photo.

I like the mood the lighting and the ice bring to the photo, brrr.

This is what I enjoy most about these challenges. I have followed the last two, as well. Eyeguy--that was really creative. And the zebra is wonderful. The icicles and piece of wood really helped me to expand my vision. I am finding myself walking the dog thinking about patterns in nature. Last month I was out looking over prairie potholes at sunset, trying a gazillion different settings, attempting to capture the light and color that I was seeing. The challenge really encourages the development of a photographer's or an artistic eye plus gives reason to work on skills and different types of photography. This is the reason I finally registered.
