Re: "The Territorial Imperative"

"Nature's beauty cannot be expressed more perfectly than in its flora."(from the description of this section) IMO this statement is too restrictive, and, because lichen ("lichens" is also an accepted plural designation) are often mistaken for plants, I shall, absent objection, p...

Re: Avalanche Lily

I have to agree with Ernst. That second image is great. I looks like a watercolor painting. Here is my take, and it's rather subjective; In viewing that second image I would prefer to see the fronts of the flowers. Instead I am presented with their backs. At this low angle it is as if I am in a crow...

Re: Radio Heaset

So I would ask as someone still learning what ever I can.....does it matter why it looks like it looks..would a client want it fixed.. I am sincere and not trying to be a smart a...... First, I don't get the 'smart ass' vibe from you so no worries. :) Second, I truly believe the only dumb question ...

Re: Wall Abstract

I hated college. For me it was more of a waste of time and money than actual learning. Not to say I didn't learn anything. There were a small handful of instructors that I really appreciated their lessons and I came away learning more than I thought I would. One such class was Art Appreciation (I wa...

Re: Radio Heaset

Thanks for looking, Erich. I appreciate the comments. Pretty darn good looking head set(heaset?) Duck...the reflection of the left seems to me, turned a bit too far clockwise.... I think that may be an optical illusion as the reflection is in camera, not faked in post. Thanks for commenting though. ;)

Re: Tension

Duck, I'm so envious of your seeming ease at organizing your thoughts and presenting them in a thoroughly enjoyable and informative way. Thank you for your time and interest! Comes from years of instructing. :-D Your comment about "found" images vs. recreating is well worth its own discus...

Re: Ken Whitmire's "Wall Portrait Conference"

One of my biggest points of contention with many photo instructors is the "cattle shoot". While well meaning, the session basically boils down to a setup, explanation of the setup and then a round robin of students shooting the setup. Early on I attended a few of these workshops not unders...

Re: Wall Abstract

Full disclosure here... This image makes me both happy and sad at the same time. Happy because it is a creative, interesting look at something we would all overlook (or at the least not look twice). It takes the mundane and elevates it to a form of modern art, placing the mundane on the artistic ped...
