Re: little meanie face

As an artist I really love that last version. It has an illustrative feel to it and can picture it illustrating a children's book. Maybe entitled "Meanie Weenie"

The Orton Effect.
That's a totally different effect and process. How does that relate to HDR? I'm not following.

Re: HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

Oh, oh, I think you opened up a big can of proverbial worms. This is a big topic with lots of 'schools' of thought. In the beginning, long before purpose built HDR software, (or software at all) exposure blending was done in the darkroom by skilled technicians. But that's ancient history now. Today'...

Re: Free headshots for building tenants

I received a private message from Frank (PSJunkie) in regards to the headshot images I posted here. Frank, I hope you don't get offended with me sharing as it furthers the conversation on these portraits in this critique section and feel others may benefit from this conversation as well. I don't cla...

Re: Street photo around Yale campus

I think it's wonderful as is. Everyone else has said what I would'a said if I'd'a said it. An aside: I used to be a regular reader of Ann Landers' advice column, and she had an ongoing mostly amusing tug-of-war going for many years with the Yalies, mostly frats, that would make up bizarre scenarios...

Should I give you credit? You're close but it isn't a mall or airport or technically an edifice, and there's no glass...
No credit. Sounds like even though I may be 'close' it's still not close enough. ;)
Maybe another visual clue?

With apologies, it also resembles the Wailing Wall; I would imagine a lot of that goes on there, too. Thanks. Matt

Re: Street photo around Yale campus

Yale is my favorite of the Ivies; this doesn't look at all like it belongs to the university. So it is a welcome view of how the school has evolved; someone has allowed a departure from their architecture and I am sure the faculty ranted when this went up. For me, the mood captures more of a Britis...
