Belated Congratulations on this gorgeous capture making finalist, Chris!
You have so many extraordinary ferris wheel shots, you should think seriously about a coffee-table type book.
Check out this link:

Good luck, Chris! If you get published, I get a commission, or at least the latest edition of the book! LOL!!

Christine Lobsinger 8/14/2011 7:05:58 AM

Hi Mary, thank you very much for your wonderful comments.. I did buy the book- just been raising 'guide dog pup' and Uriah has kept me so so busy... she is a very inquisitive (into everything) kind of lab- I really have to LEARN how to sit down and read that book and start selling...
Can I drop you an email about images sizes and resolutions for book purposes?

Smiling Chris #9602842

Mary K. Robison 8/15/2011 12:00:12 AM

Hi, Chris! My background about image sizes/resolutions is limited to greeting card size (4x6 inches), and that was years ago for an art fair.
I just did a quick search on the Internet with the phrase "Photography - resizing and resolution for books and magazines" and got a main page with many links at:

One of the links I checked out for "Digital Image Resizing" is :
(The right-hand column is all about resizing & resolution.)
One more idea: Ask the question on betterphoto's Q&A page. It's at:
Hope that gets you started!
P.S. Good luck with the Lab pup - they are a handful!


Christine Lobsinger 8/15/2011 7:44:48 AM

Thank you very much Mary... I will definitely check these links out. Oh, great idea too- about the Q&A here at BP. Thanks again.
Uriah is a very big HANDFUL... is just is 7 months and in to EVERYTHING... but we noticed her starting to be very calm and quiet on Sat. evening. She was not bugging us to play, she actually looked sad (I mean, her expression, just a bit.) We think she may be going into her first heat...her personality is changing a little- we no she is not ill, she still LOVES to eat ANYTHING SHE can, lol...
SMiling ChrisS #9605201

Mary K. Robison 8/15/2011 11:16:41 PM

Uriah's seven months old, and ready for pups of her own?? Yow!
My best friend has a black Lab named Burton. Friendliest dog I ever did see. And, at 125 lbs+/-, able to knock a person (i.e., me) over with great enthusiasm!
I hope, for your sakes, that Uriah's trained as a guide dog before she gets much bigger! #9606795

WOW, AWESOME shots!!! :) #10180602

Christine Lobsinger 6/14/2012 7:15:09 PM

Thank you very much Lydia..
I love this skywheel in Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada..
Have you ever seen it? Went to Nigara Falls?
Smiling #10180750

Laura E. Swan 6/14/2012 10:29:15 PM

Sis, are you going to go there to see the guy tight rope across the falls??? I saw it on the news this morning. I'm frightened for him. I wish he wouldn't do it!! #10180839

Christine Lobsinger 6/15/2012 4:46:51 AM

I wish we can go see him! It would take us triple the hours to get there.. tons of people trying to get into the Falls.. plus, to stay overnight if we wanted too, would cost at least 350...
We are going to watch him of-course tonight on t.v. Hey, he is ONLY allowed to do this while wearing a harness, they told him.. he agreed..
Try to watch it live tonight.. I believe he will be doing it at 9pm our time tonight- or inbetween 9-10pm..
Chris #10181085

Lydia Williams 6/15/2012 5:36:48 AM

I've been to Niagra Falls many years ago...and rode on "Maid of the Mist". I believe it was the father that died while walking and we saw him in Detroit...I will watch on tv...if we get it...Your ferris wheel images are the best I have ever seen! #10181143

Christine Lobsinger 6/16/2012 9:45:00 AM

Thanks so much Lydia..
You made my day!
I'm wondering if one of my shots I made last night of Nic Wallenda (walking over Nia. Falls on a tightrope) would classify as a 'Technology' scene...
Being on T.V. and all?
What do you think?
SMiling Chris #10182622

Lydia Williams 6/16/2012 10:33:14 AM

I don't see why not....they had shown all the preparation for this on tv this morning...give it a try, and if not, resubmit!! That was an amazing feet...all that mist...I remember being all wet from it... :) #10182700

Christine Lobsinger 6/16/2012 2:27:35 PM

Well I may have one or two shots of the t.v. scene with Nic that may be fine to enter into the contest.. thanks Lydia..
Smiling Chris #10182896

Lydia Williams 6/16/2012 4:39:19 PM

Just being there is exciting! Cannot wait to see them/it...:) #10183036
