Smug Mug photo Questions

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys

Any one out there have a Smug Mug account?

I am thinking of getting one but had a few questions about it.

If you do, and you have a few minutes, could you please give me a call.

Thanks

"This pic DOES NOT do this hill justice. I can't imagine any stock bike making it up this hill. I marked the waypoint "Suicide Hill".

This is from one of your pictures. That hill looks awsome, just gotta giver alittle. Looks like some loose rock but for sure do able.

I use smugmug and have been very pleased. If you sign up, be sure to use a promo code from someone, it will save BOTH of us some dough. You can use a coupon code or their email address.

You can get the same thing for free in the Jones Creek gallery, just register in the gallery and the system creates you a folder in the members section.

Don't mean to hijack the thread. I would have like to seen some one try this hill. :thumbsup:

An expert rider on a big bore might make it up with a stock swingarm, but a "B" level rider on a wr 250 would probably flip over backwards. It was a serious hill. :eek:

I'm riding there again the last weekend in April.

That picture must be the wrong picture cause it looks like a walk in the park. I do know that pictures rarely show the true steepness of a hill but that picture just does not look that bad. Was the guy taking while up in a tree so as to make the incline almost look flat? :lol::D:ride:

There are several places that offer photo hosting like smugmug..

I have a free account with flickr that works great for me..

http://www.flickr.com

As for perspective.... pictures always seem to make the hills look easy..

This trail doesn't look tough,

So i'm not crazy then. If OMT says it looks like a cake walk then it should be doable :D Looks like a 2nd gear romp up with no problem. Man I need to ride.

Ok,

Thread topic first. I had a flickr for a while but used up all the space that they give for free. I figured that if I was going to pay money I wanted it to look and perform better and also be easier to manage. Smugmug is better in all 3 areas. The only issue I have with Smugmug is that it doesn't seem to be able to drop below one subcatergory in structure.

Now off topic:

I am going to post in the Rocky Mountain forum and see if anyone has done that hill. To get the whole hill in the pic I had to point the camera upward in the same angle as the hill. I estimate that hill to be 60 degrees for 150 ft.

The JCTRA gallery has not limits at this time. I suppose if the hosting went off the hook I would have to cut things back but we are a long way off from that.
