question for Wish-I-were-fishn?

Recommended Posts

Hi Wish-

I saw the pic of your boat in the other thread. That shot is cool. It looks 3-D. I am not a photographer so I gotta ask: what kind of camera/film did you use to get that shot?

Thanks.

Thor

No, joke. That picture made it look like a toy boat or something.

Whew.......I was beginning to think I was the only one thinking that. Glad you thought so too. There is definitely something different about that pic......the boat seems to stand out. It is really cool. My wife and I were looking at the pic and she thought it looked like it was in HD.

Hi Thor, thanks for noticing. This was taken with a inexpensive digital camera, however I cropped the image and then blurred the background in Photo Shop Elements to make the boat stand out. The picture below is the shot prior to my tweeks. It looks like I'm showing off my fishing buddies garage more than the boat.

I good photographer can take shots like this without needing to tweek them by using a different aperture setting to control the depth of feild, which does the same thing.

Wow, that is a really cool effect. I am not a photographer so thanks for explaining it. It is neat to compare the before and after pics. The garage door in the back-ground does stand-out or draw your attention in the "before" pic. In the "after" pic the boat is the focus of attention. It really does make a huge difference.

Hey, if I take a pic of myself could you photo-shop a huge walleye in my hand! LOL. I think that is the only way I am gonna get a pic like that! LOL.

PS. Nice boat.

Thor

    • That's interesting. I would think there would be too much commotion for loons, but apparently they get adapt.   About a month ago there was a wild turkey standing in the intersection of 9th & Marquette Ave downtown during the evening rush hour. As you can imagine it had no idea what to do or where to go, and it caused quite a bit of commotion and traffic backups.    
    • Yes, I would say the smallie action was good. A couple days we had to work for them. I was using my fly rod with a murdich minnow and was out catching the spinning guys. 
    • smallies biting for you guys pretty good? we were up there a couple of weeks ago and the fishing was pretty slow, except for the 10-12" walleyes; we were on little turtle lake in Mine centre, needless to say,  we are not going back there
    • Walleye fishing remains quite good with a nice mix of quality fish.  Caught these three Saturday afternoon in just a few hours. 17", 18", 19+". Fish were caught from 10 - 19 FOW, again all near tips of points.  Crawlers put more in the boat than leeches, but better have both along. Can't wait to get back.
    • Grackles, and to a lesser extent, red winged blackbirds, have taken over my feeders. They’ve pretty much scared everything else away, and they eat up everything I put out. Anything I can do to get rid of them? Aside from thistle, is there any other bird seed they won’t eat?
    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
