Re: 'Harley Sportster' (Composite)

Both these renditions are not really a style I would generally pursue for myself but can see the appeal. Specially the darker one as I tend to favor darker, moodier images.

Re: Village of Salvage, NF - Artistic effort.

Personally I like the photo but I would crop out the barrier with the ropes. Too distracting to me. Or soften them out of focus somehow. I agree with Mike. My eye wants to go to the far shore cottages but the foreground element is too strong. I like the oil/smudge painting technique on this one. It...

Re: Typical Newfoundland Sea/land scape

Hey Minnie, I really enjoy this image of your and got a little carried away. Here's a night version of the scene with a little Kinkade inspiration thrown in. ;)
The sky needs a little more work but just wanted to share. Thanks for letting me play.

Re: Some pics from the new guy

Thanks everyone. I don't want to mislead, these shots were not from my phone but rather images I transferred to my phone one way or another. Good to know. I did get the impression they were taken on your phone so thanks for the clarification. [...] I apologize if these were posted incorrectly, I on...
