Fruit full of colors

Uploaded: July 30, 2006 08:13:58


This was taken at the local park here in waynesville, Mo. yesterday. The park was set up with tee pees, Indian things, covered wagons and other things. It was a lot of fun and got to see a lot of cool things. This was some fruit that a lady had set up for them to eat by her covered wagon. This was taken at 1/125, F7, ISO200. Does anyone know how to format a card from a Nikon D70? I am not sure what I did...but I can't get the card to format. Is there something in the menu? Thanks for the help!

Emile Abbott level-deluxe July 31, 2006

Shelly, Great find and capture first off. When I make my cards I have used Microsoft Publisher, selected a card from their menu, on page one inserted it and just drawn in the dimentions of the capture to fit the card (horizontal or vertical format). It has worked for me so far with no distortion or change in perspective.
I've beem busy lately and glad to get back. Emile #3107440
