Best of Random Gallery Picks

Random Gallery Picks are one of the greatest features of this site IMHO - because every now and then, a real gem pops up from years ago that you would never notice otherwise. Unfortunately, they're also a bit transient - next time you load the site, your random picks are gone, and you can't share them with anyone else.

This thread is for posting some of the gems turned up in "Random gallery picks" and sharing them with others. Post them as you find them, best with a link to the gallery page.

A great idea for a thread. I'll happily join in when a gem pops up, the transcient nature of the Random Picks is great but sharing some is a wonderful way to point out some great but perhaps forgotten images.

DavidH was a regular poster to the gallery when I first joined RFF and he made the most of the many interesting locations that his job took him. His gallery is well worth a look.

I always seem to notice the interesting ones just after I've clicked on something else, and a fraction of a second before it vanishes back into the gallery

Periodically I go way back in the Gallery and find many especially interesting images. Is there a way to regenerate random picks or is it only possible when we login?

...OK, I answered my own question, I think.

I just spotted this passing through and it reminded me of our recent loss!

These seem to be from an amazing series shot on Ilford multigrade paper using a view camera.

Superb idea for a thread. It should definitely be a "Sticky" thread!

Could some please explain how one goes about creating a "link to the gallery page"? Much appreciated!!

  1. Go to the gallery and go to a picture in the gallery, you should end up on the gallery page (with the picture, photo details and discussion)
  2. Look at the URL bar of your browser, it should contain something like "http://www.rangefinderforum.cоm/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=127793"
  3. Copy this URL to the clipboard
  4. In the "Reply to thread" window, write the title of the picture (or whatever), select it and click on the little link icon (with the chain)
  5. Paste the URL you just copied, it will turn your title into a link to the gallery page.

For that:
  1. right-click on the picture (or use Ctrl-Click on a Mac, or whatever your operating system uses)
  2. select "Copy Image Address" or "Copy Image URL" or whatever your browser uses
  3. in the "reply to" window, click on the little landscape icon (which is for inserting pictures)
  4. in the upcoming window, paste the URL of the image file that you just copied

A gallery page and the link to the picture itself within the gallery page are different things for the RFF software, hence the separate procedure.

Wow, another one!

Magnolia blossoms (2009), by Allan Reade


Very classic (Edward Weston up and down) but very well done.
