  1. At first I was going to say that the bottom one was a backdrop, but then I noticed the rocks on the right side of the bottom photo, and that told me that a backdrop wouldn't have had such angular 'sl' looking rocks. The shore is also a bit angular in spots. I had to really look at the photos to notice any sort of difference, though.
  2. Yes, I agree that 'bloom' is used here. You don't mention which photo-editing program you use. For those of us who do not have PS, but use free online photo-editing programs such as pixlr, there is an effect called 'orton' which can achieve a somewhat similar effect. You play with the slider to get the desired look. Under 'touch--up's' or 'make-up tools', it looks like the photographer added highlights to the skin. Personally, if you have seen a lot of this style of photo-editing in flickr, why not just shot a flickrmail message to one of the photographers and ask them if they could dire
  3. When I came into sl, I saw all of these avatars that all looked like they were 20 something. I thought that no one would bother talking to me if they knew my rl age, so I lied and said that I was 23 (I was 54 and married). I was able to voice, as I frequently get asked to 'speak to my mother' when I answer the phone in rl. I had to lie about why I couldn't or wouldn't share photos. Basically everything was a convoluted lie and it ate at me more and more. I began to meet more and more people; more people to lie to. I know others have no issue with being someone they aren't in sl, but I be
  4. Just curious, where do you tend to hang out when you are in sl? What are your interests? You mention window shopping, but other than that, what else?
  5. I've been posting in flickr on and off since 2012. I've never had one issue with how I rate my photos. I try my best to follow their rules. When I'm not sure which safety level to post it at, I choose a more stricter level. One thing that I do, when I am looking through new posts taken by people I am following and see a very sexual post, I check to see which safety rating they have posted it at. Sometimes people forget to change the safety level. If the photo is posted as 'safe', I then send them a friendly message just telling them that I've had friends banned for not choosing the
  6. One place that I have loved to ride with a friend is called "Mother Road". It's just such a great 'route 66' sort of place with GREAT light and details. Love it. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Mishiland/65/210/75
  7. Hi there. I was just wondering if you ever heard from him again? Probably most of us have had the same experience, and so we know how it hurts to not know what has happened. How hard is it to send someone a notecard in sl before you take a break or leave? With covid, it's been particularly concerning to suddenly not hear from someone. Hope that you are doing well and have found a good new friend or two.
  8. I was asked to take wedding photos for a woman and her partner about 8-9 years ago. Her fiancé was hard to photograph as he was trying to look like a body-builder so his clothes didn't fit well, and this was before mesh. I worked hard on editing the photos, sent them to her when I finished them, and she was pleased. She paid me very well. About two weeks later she messaged me and said, "It didn't work out. He's an ass. I'm engaged to a new amazing guy." I was taken aback, how she could end it with her husband, find someone new, and get engaged all within 2 weeks? She laughed and said t
  9. Strawberry Singh who used to blog in SL but now works for Linden Lab, posted this interview back in Aug. 2020 with Philip Rosedale. It's a really interesting interview! A bit long, but I thought that it was great. 🙂 My Interview with Philip Rosedale – StrawberrySingh.com
  10. One of my favorite places to hang out was Humanoid. I just loved this place. This photo was taken in 2013 with my then bf. It was just one of those peaceful, quiet times chatting about whatever, but enjoying the moment. We have always remained friends ever since, and I'm now friends with his current partner. I had encouraged him to try photography back then, and he is now into it than I am!
  11. What do you mean, "It's kind of hard to talk with him." Does that mean that he isn't a good conversationalist? Doesn't express his thoughts well? If so, then what is the basis to continue seeing him? From what you have shared with us, it doesn't seem that you have a particularly close relationship with him, or get much out of being with him. ...and wanting to make him jealous? Isn't that getting rather desperate or junior-highish? In my book, that's what I call 'playing games with people'. Not good. Regarding time zones, I'm from western Canada (slt+1) so over the years I have
  12. Thanks for the update, Tipsy. 🙂 That's great news!
  13. By you mentioning 'find enjoyment out of it (sl)', what exactly gave you enjoyment before? Socializing and hanging out with friends? Shopping? Enjoying music venues and exploring? Romance? More people logged into sl, in my opinion in the first lock-downs. If you had favorite hangouts before, are they still around? Generally, people tend to find a few favorite places to hang out at regularly, and meet others there.
  14. *Smiles* Yes, it's an oldie but still is special, at least to me. I think during this last year of covid quarantines, I tended to 'travel' virtually in sl more than usual.
