THANKSXXXXXXXXXXXX

thanks esther!!!!!! i can count the hairs on arnaud's legs in the first picture, so obviously you didnt have a problem with focus.....

what file size do you use, btw? maybe i had simply skimmed too much to save memory. i had used SQ1, 1200x1600, high, i think.

esther
01-22-2004, 06:45 AM
what size file?!!!
lol i dunnnno...i have no idea about nething about resolution or ne of that crap...what i do is get them onto my computer from the camera, put them in Paint and just make them 50% LOL...then just cut out the background or parts which arent needed to make them smaller

love the pics but my favourite is (surprise surprise) the seb signing 2.... love the angle of the pic, its so uncommon! (how could u be holding the cam and a large flag and everything else too, at the same time? i'd have dropped something - and put the player's wellbeing at risk)

Via

LOL well i was again getting pushed around by little brats (story of my life for the past 2 weeks) but when i first went over i didnt plan on really getting nething signed...i just wanted him to see me and REbel but after i took those two photos, i put my camera and everything else down on the chairs so i could give him my full attention ;)

sorry via...i dont know what my camera was put on before...how do i check?

Via
01-22-2004, 07:00 AM
i suppose u used the default setting then..... it's when u go into the menus, picture... 1st option, where u can choose shq, hq, sq1...etc

yes i can imagine... that player exit area is indeed 'brat area'... in my advancing age i wont dare go near it.

thank you, Esther. Your pics are lovely!

wow photos of Seb are gorgious.. (I still have too see the rest) But I think it isn't too difficult to take a picture of Seb, because he just always looks cute on it.. But I looked at your pictures and they looked like a professional photoshooter (??), seriously..

esther
01-22-2004, 09:14 AM
professional?!!!
thanks lizan!! lol

I'll see Seb's night match tomororw night so i dont know if i'll take many more photos coz i've already got a few and they all look the same...

its weird that he knew he was playing a night match after his 2nd round match...wonder if he requested it or something?!

omg Juanqui's pics are great :drool: but his tattoo is so ugly! :rolleyes:

thanks Esther! :kiss:

esther

i know...his tatt is hideous. i've got a few more JC ones but they all look the same so i didnt bother posting them.

see i could have stayed to watch him train shirtless for longer but no...i was loyal to arnaud

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
You're an angel & a darling, Esther, for posting the pix of Grosjean :hug: I really love it when he's thoughtful and concentrating! And as Lizan points out, generally he just looks CUTE!
Why hello Wilma, you new avatar is an eyeopener!

Hello everyone
Thanks very much esther for your lovely pics...Like Via I love the seb signing 2...He looks so near !!!
I came in this forum 3 days ago, reading some messages, and I found it great ! I introduce myself : I'm french, I'm a seb fan since 2000 and particularly since 2001, and I also like very much JC Ferrero, the marvellous Roland Garros champion...Hope seb will be the next !!!
So thanks again for these photos, and VIVE SEB !!!
bye !

Funny JC.... ;-)

Thanks esther for all the lovely pics!
As for JC's tatoo, I'm wondering what exactly it is? A demon?!

btw, I am too a new member here,
cheers :wavey:

:worship: Such lovely Nono pics, Esther! :worship:

My personal favorite is Yellow 4. :devil: nice patooty shot.

You know who the "who is that" shot is, don't you? It's Mika with Remi and the physio guy who shall forever remain nameless (especially since I've now seen him sans shirt...)

I like the other pics as well....but could just linger forever on some of those Arnaud pics.

Good photos Esther... I have very similar photos coz I was naturally at all of Seb's matches to date (wasn't last night's match v Hrbaty brilliant from the middle of the 2nd set!!!), and I was also at one of Juanqui's shirtless training sessions and took many photos!!

Unfortunately I haven't got mine developped yet (I don't own a digital), but I'll post any good ones as soon as I do!

I can't go to anymore tennis because yesterday I fell down a few steps in court 3 and rolled both my ankles and bruised the bone under my ear... battered and bruised and I hate channel 7 for only showing RLA matches!!!!!!

Nice nice nice.

Good close-ups of JC.

Sorry but I've got to ask again: Why are some of the photos mirror-reversed? Just curious.

Thanks Esther. Your time and effort is very much appreciated! The piccies are beautiful.


Salut Crystal! :)

alix, crystal, aivlis and pj girl- welcome to the board....so many people...LOL

vale, ulla, taremi and Irish- thank u :kiss:

kelly- NO i havent seen him naked...LOOOL...i've gotten a hug but thats all!! LOL ;)

Michelle- yeah i know who remi and mika are LOL but didnt know the other two

Tryphon- which ones are reversed? Ok what i have to do is i have to get the photos off my camera right and then have to RE SIZE them to post them? Because they are too big...so when i resize them i have to cut stuff out so i have to flip them around...and sometimes i forget to flip them back and i get confused LOL so thats why

esther
01-26-2004, 09:53 AM
PJ girl- were u at Seb's match against Ginepri? you werent the girl with 'kiss me grosjean' on her face were u...

Tryphon

Esther thanks for the reply, I'm not criticizing but I just thought that was strange.

I understand you need to crop and resize, not sure why it has to involve flipping them but that's your business. ;)

Anyway, once the open is over and you have more time, check all of your pix again.
Some players are left-handers when they should not :D others are wearing their lacoste crocodile or their nike swoosh just the wrong way, or whatever wording there is to see in the picture is mirrored.

Thanks again for all the nice pix, glad you're enjoying your days at the tennis so much!

tryphon- great to see you around here again btw!! neway i know u werent critisizing a few people have asked me about that actually. It's because, in Paint-program i have to use to resize because i dont have any better ones LOL- you can't crop photos from the left? you have to crop from the right? so i have to flip the photo horizonatally if i want to cut stuff out from the left? and then i forget to flip it back..

LOL oh god i didnt realise it was THAT obvoius that they were flipped...how embarasing. i will definately make sure they are turned around properly coz i'm going to make a special site for them (i say that now...probably will never get aroudn to it) and before i print them. :)

PJ girl- were u at Seb's match against Ginepri? you werent the girl with 'kiss me grosjean' on her face were u...

Sorry for the late reply here but somehow this thread has managed to hide from me all week...

LOL I wasn't at the Seb v Ginepri match because I couldn't walk that weekend after the incident I mentioned above at Crt3 on the Friday... I can assure you I would never have the guts to write 'Kiss Me Grosjean' on my face!!! OMG - Someone DID that?????????

With the flipping of the photos, some were obvious from memory - the writing in the background is backwards :P I noticed that in some of your Kooyong photos lol
