Re: Duck & The Decisive Moment

Unitas_Photography-6564.jpg Thanks to Minnie's and Dave's kind generosity in sharing their vacation with me I had the privilege of observing this community's generations old tradition first hand.

Re: 'Waitin' on Forrest Gump' (Composite)

I like the reworked version. It definitely provides more of a sense of 'place' without sacrificing the overall mood. Well done.

Re: Work boots

"How much are those boots in the window"? Cool version Duck, this reminds me of a store front window advertisement or a magazine add. Excellent, I like it very much and I'm sure you will be able to possibly use it later or something similar. Hopefully someone sees this and says, "this is the guy to...

Re: Last Sunset on Swim-Beach

[...] It is not from lack of knowledge of what the rules are, it is from my insistence on doing things the wrong way by choice.
And I'm okay with that. It's what makes you who you are. Your images speak for themselves and there's no denying you have made some really awesome images. :thumbup:
