My computer reports the size of the file as being: Size on disk: 2.14 MB (2,248,704 bytes)

2.14 MB > 2.0 MB.   The new forum software apparently strictly implements the published guidelines.   I don't know what the old forum software did as I always uploaded images smaller than the guideline.

Magnolia 'Felix Jury' in flower - Trengwainton Garden (Penzance, Cornwall) - LEICA Q2 MONO - ISO800 1-200 sec f8 2021-03-17 14.56.08


Lowest dusky pink bloom reachable with my 28mm wide-angle .
Cropped to 2100x1400px - for compositional purposes.

PNG - 2.16MB
my computer cited: Size on disk: 2.16 MB (2,269,184 bytes)
'dragged file attach' method used - forum cited: 2.2mb - Done

Web site panel cited: 
  • Max total size: 2.34 MB
  • Max file size: 2.34MB

As I said earlier the published 'guideline' sizes are inaccurate but
I can cope with the new regime by adjusting my PNG output flow.

FWIW Dec 2020 forum code used my PNG 2300x1535px ("two walkers")
that my computer sized as being some: 2.33 MB (2,445,312 bytes) 
<https://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/315205-leica-q2-monochrom-image-thread/?do=findComment&comment=4100526>
so... something HAS changed - a little - but maybe only I noticed:-) 

Technically: I think there has been a difference in your assessment of the actual
file image size & the size assessed during transport ie with transport overheads.

Glibly: the 'sizes' quoted before & after forum code upgrade relate 
to different sides of the image handling/conversion instance.

Dickson Antarctica - leaning - three heads - Trengwainton Garden (Penzance, Cornwall) - LEICA Q2 MONO - ISO800 1-400 sec f4 2021-03-17 15.06.36


How can something that grows 'out of the top' forever be made to split into three distinct heads or forks? Weird.

1900px - 2.02 MB (2,121,728 bytes) - PNG - not accepted by new software despite 'max total/file sizes: 2.34MB'
1800px - 1.82 MB (1,908,736 bytes) - PNG - not accepted by new software despite 'max total/file sizes: 2.34MB'
1700px - 1.62 MB (1,708,032 bytes) - PNG - was accepted by new software AND declared as: 1.6mb - Done

A few from today's photo walk with the kids in Hyde Park, Chicago.

“Black was the without eye
Black the within tongue
Black was the heart
Black the liver, black the lungs
Unable to suck in light
Black the blood in its loud tunnel
Black the bowels packed in furnace
Black too the muscles
Striving to pull out into the light
Black the nerves, black the brain
With its tombed visions
Black also the soul, the huge stammer
Of the cry that, swelling, could not
Pronounce its sun.”


 Ted Hughes, Crow: From the Life and Songs of the Crow

 

There is nothing like the squawk of crow protecting its nest, cutting the air like a black knife. Q2M and yellow filter.

A Cooper's Hawk visited the back garden this morning. I didn't try to get a shot because it would have just flown away, but I did get a shot of it's aftermath.

That's life & death... What did it eat? Apart from leaving the feathers. 

I've a picture of a sparrowhawk SITTING slavering over my sparrow feeder cage! Not with a Leica. I took the picture, it flew away, and all my sparrows came back to feed.

I'm not 100 percent sure but I think it was a sparrow.

It's sad for the poor Dove, but the tones and composition make this a strikingly beautiful nature photograph.
