Re: Girl & Her Violin

YES! Linda pegged the right word... Mesmerising. I kept coming back to the first image trying to figure out what it is that is so captivating about it and I think it's because it dances around being both ambiguous and familiar (even though I am not a musician.) Overall it is a stunning portrait of t...

Re: "Portrait of a Significant Mid-Westerner"

If you don't mind me asking, can this effect be achieved through filters, such as filtering the blue with yellow or orange? I've always been curious. What a wonderful image! S- There are ways of 'faking' an IR image but true infrared photography records a different part of the light spectrum. For e...

Re: "Portrait of a Significant Mid-Westerner"

Very interesting image. I like the fact that you didn't try to lighten the sky as this pulls you right into the main subject.

I have a friend that is pushing me to convert a camera to IR. I'm on the fence but I really love the look of IR.

Thanks for showing us yours.

Re: Darrington, Washington Through the eyes of my drone.

Hi Steve (Thejokerthesmoker), it seems some people know you but welcome to photoMENTORIS anyhow. To make your experience more personal I would like to suggest you put your real name in a signature line that way people can refer to you by your name rather than the lengthy Thejokerthesmoker . Looking ...

Re: Follow-up to "Tension" - a skimmer water bug

Marvelous! There is a great interplay of light on dark/dark on light within this image. As for cropping... there is no easy answer to any suggestions as it's all rather subjective. For me, considering I am a big fan of symmetry, I would like to see them more horizontally leveled with equal spacing a...

Re: When a Chair..

The first thing that came to mind, even before I opened the post, was Edgar Allan Poe's riddle, "why is a raven like a writing desk?" "When is a chair not a chair?" On seeing the image I am first taken by the tranquil nature of the scene. Instantly familiar and classical in natur...

Re: 'DJ Chinn Chilla'

Very cyberpunk-ish. Lots of mood.
I feel the left eye (camera right) is a bit too overworked to bring it out of shadow and seem incongruous with the shadow across the top of his head.
Other than that, I really love this. Even the smoke at the bottom of the frame.

Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion: Cartier-Bresson and The Decisive Moment - Share Your Thoughts

Thanks for the looking out Steve. I had already found those links you listed, which is my original problem... they all refer to, or quote from, the original text. I would like a copy of the actual original text from the book itself and that is what I am having a hard time finding. My local library i...

Re: Why I Live At PM (photoMentoris) - add your story

It's interesting to see the arcs of people's lives and how they converge at just the right opportunistic time. My journey here began early on in my switch from film to digital back on 2004/2005. For several years I floated from forum to forum, not settling on any one right away. There were so many t...
