Trail mix? I hope no acorns. They are way too bitter.
Woot, woot! You got it.
It is trail mix but I keep it in a cashew jar I recycle. :)

Your turn :thumbup:

Re: Baby step in PS: Ta Dah!

I'm waiting for Duck to offer us one of his cool video tutorials about masking, particularly using the latest PS tools. So far, the ones I've found are less helpful and more idealized than I'd like. I think he could sell it like hotcakes if it presented a real life practical solution that didn't ma...

Re: Baby step in PS: Ta Dah!

Masking is one of those tools that, once mastered, will be used ALL THE TIME. It's handy for more than just changing backgrounds. Any time you need to isolate an effect to a particular part of an image you need to apply a mask. As you have (or will learn) there are multiple ways of creating masks (s...

Re: Photo Rorschach -- what is it?

One game at a time. But the new image gives question to the nature of the game. Are we guessing what the actual item is , as in the previous posts by Matt, or are we doing the psichlogical interpretation of an item, as in the mountain's face? Anyhoo... Here's another clue. Just a more expanded view ...

Re: Reassuring_Hands

Frank, I love your images and study them. I think you tend toward the light side while I tend toward the dark, so I can learn from you to bring balance to my photos. If you can remember, [highlight]what did you focus on to set exposure?[/highlight] Thanks. Matt Hey Matt, to be honest, that's the wr...

I see a dolphin having target practice with an avocado. Matt
Damn, and I thought I was making this hard!


(N) Umm, I don't think so.

Re: Reassuring_Hands

Wow, what a wonderfully caught moment of sibling (?) tenderness. I love the framing, the play of the reflections in the wet sand, the overall toning. The thing that really catches my eye is there seems to be something funky going on behind the boy's legs. Some kind of artifacting. I really like this...
