Re: Pachyderm

By request I am posting an edit of Bob's image made to look more like an elephant. Pachyderm.jpg All editing was done in Photoshop using layers and a few blending modes. I have labeled all the layers and appended the labels with hints as to what was done. I also did some judicious dodging and clone ...

Re: The Watcher

What caught me first was the blue of the sign at top, then the "Krishna Cafe/Free Wi-Fi" sign. Then the array of colors played games with my eyes and I asked myself, [i]"what does he mean by 'watcher'?" Then I saw him and it jarred me. It took me aback when I saw that face poppin...

Re: The One Above Sees All

The scene is rather typical and, I dare say, wouldn't garner much attention except that we are being shown a unique perspective. The view is so attention grabbing that I found myself studying the scene for quite some time. I particularly love how the bright colors in the center pull the view in. Ano...

Re: Products on white

That's nice! I used to shave that way. I still have my dad's hog bristle brush! I still do. I hate spending all that money on disposable razors. If I may be permitted a small comment? If I'd made it I think I'd raise the value on the soap label --- just the label, just a little. (Y) Wish I could, b...

I have no training and consider that I'm a little over the hill for it, besides which right now I'm going through one of the roughest patches ever and disinclined to leave my chair.

Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion- Oct 2017 - Gursky's Rhein II

This is a great idea. While it may not have worked this time it is something to keep in mind for future discussions with other contemporary photographers.
