Re: Coming Soon to a Creative Cloud Near You (??)

Anyone here rememberr when the entire Adobe suite used to cost $1800? What was in it back then? Let's see if I can remember... Photoshop and Illustrator, Acrobat (which has always been free), a web development tool (I can't remember the name) and what else? Was Flash included in the package as well?...

I have to admit I like this version better also.

Re: Discussion: What makes a photographer?

[...] The sense that I have today, although I have not really looked closely, is that indeed, everyone is a photographer, and the good ones, with real skills (Duck) can make a living doing it out of a private home, and many, many do. On Facebook, Instagram, there are thousands (!!) of photographers...

Re: Backcountry Roads

[...] I do not disagree that too much sharpness might be a distraction sometimes, but then I find myself wondering about the f/64 school, named for stopping the lens down to its smallest aperture for maximum depth of field. [...] Yes, but there is a difference between detail retention if a deep dep...

Re: Barn With Red Door

Have you ever watched those cliche commercials showing spectators at a tennis match? That's me looking at this image. My eyes just bounce back and forth between the barn and post, which is a good thing. The image is keeping my interest. There is nothing I would consider wrong or displeasing about th...

Re: 'Chug-a-lug, Chug-a-lug'

[...] What are your thoughts on this one? Much, much better and natural looking. The light balance between subject and background match (and even the color balance), avoiding that incongruity between the two. Well done. As for the Blend-If function... I feel you on that one. I have a hard time full...

Re: Discussion: What makes a photographer?

[...] I think "enthusiast" is a great term to apply to the many, many amateurs (lovers of whatever) who have a real dedication to whatever hobby they pursue. In theory it would be nice if everyone used the proper adjectives to qualify the noun but it is so much easier to say, "I am a...

Re: Discussion: What makes a photographer?

[...] On the other hand, just because I have a pocket full of wrenches, does that make me being a mechanic or just a wannabe? But that's just it... you are a mechanic if you use those wrenches . I am by no means mechanically inclined. I have layman's knowledge of engine repair but I do own a Jeep a...

Re: Tete a Tete

While it may have been serendipity, there is no denying how strong that leading line is to the couple. I see it starting with the bright area of the far building, traveling down the row of cars, transitioning to the row of tables to be stopped by the subject's hands and, BAM! You're there. Really gr...
