    ----------------

    This thread is for posting your quality, high end pics. Lightbox pics, etc. This is to allow those who want to post their high quality pics a place to showcase their photos, and help those who want to improve their photography skills.

    Here's some guidelines:

    LIGHTBOX TYPE SHOTS ONLY, OR PHOTOGRAPHS WHICH MIND THEIR BACKGROUNDS: This thread is not for desktop or driveway photography. Use a background. Flexibility may be granted if utmost care is taken to ensure quality otherwise. No cellphone pics.

    PLEASE KEEP IMAGE SIZE TO A REASONABLE RESOLUTION: Preferably less than 2048 pixels wide. Even though the forums will appear to resize your images, the entire file will load with every refresh and giant images will slow down the thread. Large images may be removed and the poster may repost a smaller version. Pics above 3000 pixel-wide resolution are always way too big and will be removed immediately. Please shoot for around 2048 pixels or below. In addition to resolution, maybe more importantly is file size. There are still a lot of folks on metered or slow connections. Don't make them download your 10MB Photoshop export. You can save a 2048 pixel wide JPEG at 80% quality between 400 and 800kb. Aim for the lowest KB per pic without sacrificing quality.

    EFFECTS: Effects can be added if done at a higher level, similar to background requirements here. No cheap auto effects. Mind your effects like you mind your backgrounds and keep it semi-pro.

    POSTS WHICH DO NOT MEET THE ESTABLISHED GUIDELINES MAY BE MOVED TO ANOTHER THREAD OR REMOVED: It's nothing personal, but this thread is designed to have a separate personality from the Cool Stuff thread with an emphasis on quality and helping your fellow TFW board member get things "just right." "Third Party" products are acceptable in this thread (See moderator notes. ~TFW2005.COM Staff).

    We may adjust the guidelines going forward. But for the meantime, take some photos and have fun!

    (Updated in 2020 to reflect modern expectations)

    Staff note: Upon further review, 3p pics ARE allowed in here. Keep all the supah cleah in one spot. Sorry for the confusion.

    Kicking things off with some basic pure white shots. Wanted to revisit pure white and see if I could get things clean without cutting the figures out in Photoshop.

    Got it mostly right in camera, some slight brushing around feet and wheels for shadows. Not perfect, but better than before and quicker. Just not perfect or quick enough to do consistently. Try again next year :) .

    I wasn't going to do Siege Deluxes, but at end of last year I caved and got most of what I wanted to fill in that shelf. Can't believe I'm doing Generations again, but I've really been digging them.

    That's cool, that thread can stay along side this one. Two different methods of sharing.

    Cool stuff was always less focused on picture purity. Just cool, regardless of photographer skill.

    Supah Cleah requires photo skills in additional to coolness. :)
