Beautiful gallery of a beautiful place, a nice refuge in the middle of a very busy city! I just returned from two months in Honolulu with relatives and posted an album on the Garden. Thank you for your more extensive work and labeling the photos. Quite a job!

lovely shots here Selvin. You have entice me to come back for more. Bookmarked your gallery!
Waqas Usman18-Sep-2006 07:08
Thanks, I don't do many people shots, I think I should focus on that a bit more :)

RE: Panoramas, I don't always have a stand for panoramas, I only use a tripod for night panos. The tools I mentioned to you earlier (Autostitch and Hugin, both use Pano Tools at the back end) are very powerful tools. Pano Tools is free, Hugin is its free GUI and Autostich is a demo software that can stitch unlimited number of rows and columns, in fact not just strictly rows and columns, any handheld randomly overlapping images!! The bad part is that it's totally automated, and if it picks up only 10 out of 12 images for the pano, you can't tell it where the other two fit it. Auto Pano is a better, retail software which can export project files for other Pano Tools Gui's that can do that stuff manually. Hugin is one of the free GUI's for Pano Tools, you can do all stuff manually, its partially automated but you have to learn a bit to use it, which is not too much to ask, and is a good "investment".

HI, Selvin Chance
You have a great collection of galleries full of interesting pictures here. Now, will be great if you can include a gallery of the famous 'live' volcanoes' spilling lava into the sea to sahre with all of us ...;-)
Judith McCarthy 10-Mar-2006 21:29
Thank you for your gallery and yourbeautiful photos. Butterflies are beautiful and so transient, that seeing one should remind any of us of what meaning and beauty can be found in Nature, something that we should cherish and preserve at all costs.

Thank you for standing by my Oahu gallery. Your favourable comments as a resident are particularly appreciated. Oahu was a great photographic adventure.
Guest 12-Jan-2006 01:18
Hello Selvin, Thanks for the galleries We especially love the Hawaii at night shots. My teen sons have a band and would like to ask your permission to use your 'Highway at Night' photo for the cover of their demo CD titled Drive. Here is a link to show how they would like to use it.We would appreciate your permission to use it. If not we will delete the link and photo right away. Thank you - Bruce cing100@hotmail.com
Tracy Gardner 11-Jan-2006 05:44
Selvin,
I forgot to tell you that you should retire from education and become a professional photographer. You have such a great eye for photojournalism. I think when I retire (in about 20 years...uhhh), I will take up photographing weddings, babies, and families as my hobby. Your work is amazing. Give my best to your family. Tracy
Tracy Gardner 11-Jan-2006 05:38
Thanks for sharing your galleries with me. I loved seeing the pictures of the grandkids especially. Jacob is getting so big! Angelina is still only 14 pounds, so it looks like I am going to have a petite girl. Beautiful pictures of your family and Hawaii. God Bless You!
Guest 07-Jan-2006 09:09
Hi Selvin from what I have seen so far you have got many great shot's in your gallery, I am going to have to pop back from time to time to check them all out, there is so many.

Guest 06-Dec-2005 15:31
Thanks for the comments Selvin. The guy at the train station was going who knows where to do who knows what. The shot of the monks in the temple was a spur of the moment shot as I was talking to a novice monk at the time, but hey, monks enjoy photos as much as everyone else. Thanks for sharing the outer island celebration photos. Aloha, JB
Jane27-Nov-2005 16:02
I found your wonderful galleries after you left a comment on my site. Thank you for visiting and I'm so glad I got a chance to see your work. We lived in Hawaii for seven years and this really takes me back. I only wish I had owned a good digital camera while we lived there. Oh well . . . I will live vicariously through your beautiful photographs and will visit your galleries often! Mahalo!

Kurth just found your website. Some of the pictures strained his brain cells, trying to remember names and faces. I think he still has one of the shirts that he is wearing in a picture! His mom and Avril are coming over tomorrow and we will share the pictures with them. Thanks for the walk back. Lynn

Lester A Pfeffer25-Jul-2005 12:09
You indeed have a most impressive set of images -- especially your "Unusual Flowers" -- I guess that in Hawaii, one can "go crazy" with all the unsual plants and floweers. I have been around many parts of the world, but never to Hawaii. Ihave been to Alaska twice -- that is probably 180 degrees opposite of Hawaii, with its beautiful snow capped mountains and that type of scenery.

Incidentilly, I tried and an image at about 90K and 200K, and they looked the same on my screen, a 17 inch flat LED screen -- I will continue using just under 100K as my file size. Some talk abut "8" or "7" as the file size they use -- well, each image wouuld have a different file size, since using say "8" in Photoshop would give a smaller file size for an image with little detail, and a larger file size for one with much detail. Perphaps this is the way to go -- I don't know. What do you think?

Lester, OnlyMeters
Lester A Pfeffer24-Jul-2005 12:57
Again, thanks for your comments. I am 72 and retired -- have been taking photos for about 60 years, and of course, our grandchildren are a major subject now. Did weddings on weekends for abut 25 years, with the last of the weddings about 25 years ago. This is all in the intro remarks on the opening page of my galleries. I simply enjoy taking pictures!

Of course, I don't know how you have done it, but I process each image outside of Pbase, cropping it if necessary and making any other adjustments, in light level and color for example, and cutting the size down to a max of about 675 pixesl high with the width whatever it comes out to. I have been cutting the file size down to just below 100K -- I have to experiment (at this relatively late stage) to see if an image of say 200K would appear sharper. I then import the group of images into Pbase. I hae never experimented with letting Pbase processing a group of images.

I am now exhibiting my photos, trying (not too hard) to sell some, and beginning to teach photography -- I will be teaching a course titled "Digital Photography: Getting Started" at a local adult shool this coming fall. I have won some rather nice contests in the past and presently enjoy my local camera club and the competitions there (not too competitive. I am particularyl pleased that my camera club has recently purchases a digital projector, to include digital images along with the slides and prints.

Time marches on, and so do developments in photography -- and we have to keep up with the progress -- Lester, OnlyMeters -- the "OnlyMeters" is for my colledtion of photographic light meters -- I have almost 1,000 of them! Have been colleciton them for about 35 years! Me and my collection was the subject of an article in Popular Photography Magazine in June of '98. I am presently in discussions with the Smithsonian Instution in Washington to take my meter colledtion.
Lester A Pfeffer23-Jul-2005 20:28
When I thanked you for your comments about my fruits and veggies, I had not looked at your galleries -- you indeed have a set of outstanding images! You should be proud of them! My only comment is that I think that you have too many images too close together. I do not know what you can do, considering the large number of images that you have. When I started with Pbase, I had my images close as you do, but as you may have seen in my gallleries, I have not put my images so close together -- of course, I do not have quite the large number of images that you have, but I still have many -- I have about 1,200 and you have almost 3,000. We both have many images!

Still, I love the quality of you images! Lester, OnlyMeters
Lester A Pfeffer23-Jul-2005 13:41
Thanks for your nice comments about my fruits and veggies -- I enjoy taking photos of many different things. It is interesting if the EXIF data from your S404 was interperted correctly by Pbase, because that data is fine in my original images. And the EXIF data was correctly interperted by Pbase from my new Konica/Minolta A2, as well as frm an old, inexpensive Kodak camera, I think it was an FX3660. Pbase is my electronic scrapbook, which is beter, I think, than having piles of physical scrapbooks. Regards to Hawaii from Glen Ridge New Jersey.

Hi "Hawaiian" Selvin: Thank you so much for your kind remarks on two of my pictures. Matilija Poppies, which are my favorite, are quite profuse here in June. The other picture was taken, over 15 years ago, on a stop on a highway ascending up from the foothills to Sequoia National Park in California. The hilltop you see is a landmark named "Hospital Rock." While the image has been my favorite, nobody ever uttered a word of appreciation, till your comment arrived! I did a quick review of your own remarkable galleries. I particularly liked, among many others: Natural archway, White feather lei, Details of the dome in old library building, and Tree fern. Your pictures are rich with a lot of variety. Aloha. JARIS

Thank you for sharing your work and your comments. I wish I had high speed net so I could whiz through your thousands of photos - you have quite a collection. I've enjoyed what I've seen so far, have added you as a favorite artist and will come back and work my way through everything slowly.
And as I said in the Lei gallery, your comments for each of your photos are much appreciated - it's always a pleasure to learn something as well as enjoy the viewing.

Selvin, Glad that you liked my lighthouses. My wife and I were fortunate enough last year (2003) to spend a whole month living at Princeville house-sitting for some friends - great frinds!!! Loved all of Kauai but reckon that Kilauea Point was probably our favourite. We visited there many times to see the whales and also those beautiful tropicbirds. Have a look at my Wave photos and you will see a photo of an impressive wave at Kilauea. I will post the tropicbirds later.

Hey, congratulations on your 450000+ hits on Pbase - I have a long way to go yet.

Mahalo, Brian

Hi Selvin, cheers for the comments in my galleries. I'm suprised anyone remebers Harry Belafonte. Amazing what a hit song can do for a person.
My picture with 23,000 hits must've been on PBase forever, or at least since I joined. Incidentaly it's actualy 24,917 hits to date. Dunno why people keep looking at it?
The next closest is only 10,864, (similar sort of picture though). I'm sure some of your pictures are viewed as many times.

Hi Melvin - I received your message on Bob_Carol/Sturgis. Thanks! And I do need to change Devils Monument to Devil's Tower - that was my error. I've got another 300 photos to upload yet - mostly Badlands in South Dakota and then a few more pictures on the way back to Delaware. I'll have to take a look at your site - haven't been to Hawaii for about 10 years. Loved the place then. Take care, Carol

Hi Selvin, thank you for your return visit to my galleries. I took a look around your Boston gallery and left a couple of comments. Hope you had a good time in Boston, that quite a flight from Hawaii!

Hi Selvin,

Thank you for your comment on my Okinawan gallery. I had a look through some of yours, and it's amazing how similar Hawaii and Okinawa seem, at least from what we've both photographed. Very nice work!

Hei Selvin
I drop a quick look at your galleries and i realy like what i see.
I must return for a closer look because it seems to me that i'm going to have a very pleasant time in here.
So, congratulations for showing us so beautiful pics.
Guest 26-Jul-2004 15:55
Hi Selvin,
Thanks for your nice comment in my Galveston gallery. Your 'sunsets and sunrises' gallery make me want to visit Hawaii again. I especially like the 'sails in the sunset' shot. I notice that you don't have any pictures of Oregon (Where I'm from). You should take a trip out there the next time you make it to the mainland. All the best.

Guest 20-Jul-2004 22:34
Thank you for the encourangement. This is my first serious digital camera, and I'm still figuring it out (hence all the flower shots and still-lifes....they don't blink, they don't change expression, and if you don't shoot outdoors on a windy day, they don't move!)
Dick Whitford 19-Jul-2004 14:59
Selvin, Get shots of the lighthouses, I have a friend that loves lighthouses that we stay with in Daytona Beach, and I took some picture of lighthouses I want to send her.
So got to your site for information about the Diamond Head, Oahu, Hawaii lighthouse, I took almost a similar picture. Can you tell me when the this lighthouse was built?

Thanks for sharing your photos.

Hi SELVIN,
Thanks for sharing your talent with the rest of us. Kate, Mom, Ang, and I really love your pictures! I'm really impressed, wish I were there. Say hi to everyone for me.
Take care, Patty
Guest 07-Jun-2004 07:24
Selvin, I am insanely jealous of your ability to hango ut and photgraph Hawaii. I was there only once on an all-too-short vacation and dream everyday of returning, and hopefully soon. Wonderful pictures, delightful gallery. So, invite me over for dinner already.

Greetings Selvin,
it was a pleasure to browse through your galleries. It looks like you are a lucky resident of hawai'i. I personally liked the hawai'ian flower gallery the most. Thanks for pointing out the corrections in my gallery !

Visited your beautiful islands a few years ago and it is a piece of heaven on earth.

Though I loved so many of your shots, was particularly taken of the Bulbophylum shot...nature's art!
