Re: On Ice

Macro lenses are a blast to use. If this is a new lens, definitely spend some time getting used to it. In my experience not all macro lenses behave the same. Some have that no man's land between macro focus and normal focus while others have a special "macro" section on the focus ring. You...

Re: Walk With Me Again - Companion Image

That is gorgeous scene, even in its cold starkness. That said, I feel there is too much coolness and the sun invites some form of warmth into the image. Consider isolating the walkway with a wash of warm light. It should help counter all that coolness while strengthening the leading line aspect of t...

I'm ROTFLMAO gasping for air and wiping the tears from my eyes, it's so funny. As for any resemblance... that frown needs to be upside down. :thumbup:

I looked up Shelton on Google and you are partially on our way to or from Cape Cod. We use 95. If it suits you, on one of our trips, I would like to stop by and meet you. And Mrs Duck, who looks more merry. I always have my bride with me. Friends are always welcomed. It would be great to have you f...

Re: Out to pasture

I recall making a coment about your images looking under exposed a while back, leading me to think you may have the brightness level too high on your monitor.

Re: Opening the Floor Regarding the Learning and Use of Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw Et Cetera

You and I have the same teachers. Go figure. :D Unmesh Dinda of PixImperfect is a fantastic teacher. He doesn't just show how , he explains why as well.
