    Way to go! Too bad you didn't get credit, but money is good!

    Now if it'll just stop raining.... I feel for the flood victims all over.

    Hey Darren - I was holding the umbrella in one hand - camera in the other and it was bucketing down -was standing in 6 inches of water - i sent a heap low res and they used the Orange one anyway - the eugowra one is crooped....

    Roads in Eugowra are open now (mum and dad went home this morning)

    Its a catch 22 - buy in a flood area ??? and evey now and then you cop it - doesn't mke it any easier though...

    Well done anyway!

    I'm just surprised neither you nor the photo editor straightened it. I saw a sports pic in the courier mail the other day that was even worse. Doesn't gel with me really.

    I guess it is just another aspect of the decline of editorial standards.

    Very true. Also probably worth noting that these days, not only are these people visually less aware, but they also have less time or motivation to get it right.

    more so the camera phone has won out... people are used to fuzzy oof shots due to them being taken by amazing phones that do almost every thing but make phone calls...

    but because we carry them about EVERYWHERE, they tend to get shots as they "were there"

    You've got to remember that newspapers are after stories, not photographs. If a photograph tells a story it's a double whammy.
    After all, have you ever seen a photogpaph in a newspaper without a story? Not likely.

    Agree and agree - i submitted about 12 shots one day which they then used - was more worried about whether i was going to have water in the house - than straight horizons. If they said yes to a shot i would have straightened it. Didn't think they would/ could print a 72DPI image in the paper OK. so you learn something everyday..
