      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 .

Those are some nice sharp images. I like the team name in the second image, the first sprint car is my favorite though. I might have tried a little slower shutter speed to show some more motion blur. Other than that this are good images.

This is a photo sharing forum. Any and all types of photos are welcome, as long as they are in good taste. wink

No critique from me, cause I'm a birder or any type of critter. wink

They look good to me.

As Yak said with airplanes and cars a slower shutter speed is preferable to show motion blur on the wheels. They just look strange with the wheels frozen. Usually 1/250s to 1/320s depending on how fast those wheels are turning will give you nice spoke blur.

This is one of those rare times where you can shoot in Tv mode, set the shutter speed you want and fire away. I'm a sports shooting guy so I personally love seeing these types of shots here. Keep on sharing!

Zeke, let me also chime in and echo others' thoughts that, while many here are really into nature/wildlife/birds, all types of photos that fall within forum policy are encouraged and welcome.

Thanks for sharing these with us! smile

    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
    • They are starting to groom from Finland north on the NSST ,,, We could use more then the dustings of snow we have been getting lately to get the southern part of the trail set up 
    • Not sure why that posted three times...
    • New season of the Ranch came out... for those of you Netflix binge watchers out that haven’t seen it, I highly suggest it!

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
