View through hole in wall.

A shot taken through a hole in the wall of a folly at Consall Hall Gardens in Staffordshire.




This is my first attempt at embedding a picture into a post. I could not copy and paste the url in the normal way using my mouse, I had to enter it manually. What have I missed please?




Another picture taken at Consall Hall.



..and another.

That's really smart well spotted and well captured. Consall is a lovely place. I've never tried to embed a picture into a post myself so you are one up on me.

Re: View through hole in wall.

Hi Phil.
Thank you for your comments.
Posting a picture in essence is simple however in practice I'm finding it awkward.
You can embed a picture that is in your gallery. Bellow the gallery picture is the required code in the form of a URL which you copy into your post.
For some reason though I can't copy and paste directly from the gallery web page, the function doesn't work. Therefore I'm forced to highlight the URL which on my browser set up appears in the search window of the Google task bar but not the complete string. I copy this incomplete string to a Wordpad document and then highlight the missing part of the string and copy that to the first bit to complete it. Then I copy and paste the complete string to my post. A very long winded process and I'm sure there must be an easier way to do it!

Steve.

Thanks John.
Do I need to edit and resize the pictures?
I uploaded them from FastStone Image Resizer staying under the 512kb limit, I take it I should have specified 800x600 pixels too?

I'll use the keyboard short cuts next time. I knew there had to be an easier way

Regards,
Steve

Re: View through hole in wall.

Thanks to John I'm getting the hang of this now. I've used Control+C/V to cut and paste the url into my post.
I've also resized the pictures to comply with the forum limits.
Cheers,

Steve

Sorry, I missed the bit about being posted on the wrong board. They should have been posted in Photo Fair shouldn't they?
Please can a board administrator move the thread to where it should be. I won't do it again, promise
Cheers,
Steve

Re: View through hole in wall.

Great shots Paullus ! Love the shot through the raggy hole - it looks beter to me, than the window (which shows why lintels are needed above windows )

2 is just awesome - a great postcard view ! Thanks for sharing

Re: View through hole in wall.

Good framing technique but for me the red wall kills the image as my eye is drawn away from the main subject. Same with coloured mounts.
Sorry!

Sorry!
Interesting as I feel "as if I am looking through the hole" - whereas I do not feel this or like the through the window shot ? I wonder why these shots have such great impact on differing perspectives ?
