Re: Showcase your best sunset photos

The sunset that wasn't Until the equinox tonight, 9/22/'18 at 9:54 PM, ET, it is still summer even though the temps are in the low 6o's. So, this is the last sunset of this summer, the sunset that wasn't. Matt A blue sunset is an anomaly but it works well, especially with the dead tree silhouetted ...

Oh, yeah, I really like this. The doorknob looks familiar of course, since I have some of these old ceramic knobs too. I'm impressed with your new series. I may copycat you.

A "Blast from the Past". Came across this old selfie on my facebook news feed and thought I'd say hello and share.
Very nice (self-)portrait. It's especially interesting when viewed alongside the one in your avatar, which is so similar in pose.

All nice captures, glad you made it with out incident....
Adorable. I regret I've never seen kangaroos in their native habitat. They are so cute, and so unique. I especially like the last one, where the joey seems like he's been rather carelessly crammed into his carseat by a mom in a hurry.

Piet has said we should take pictures of the things we love. So, here are a few from yesterday:

trees and water in b&w

bike riding

the bride
Very nice use of natural silhouetting. A trio all processed like the first would give you a nice set to frame together.

Re: Plowed

Spotted on my morning walk. Matt I'm no expert at this but it has a "golden mean" look to it. The tallest leaning grass stem is the starting point. My this week's challenge is for leading lines, and yours is already better than what I got!! Was there much color in it? It might do well in color if t...

Re: TRNP at sunset

Oh my, that's the color treatment straight out of Bierstadt and other Hudson River School landscape painters! Love the way you've got the buffalo framed with the grasses and landforms

Re: Help!!! Needed Re: Image Sales

I just got the estimates back from the local printer. The restaurant manager is intrigued with metal prints. After seeing the restaurant and the other decor, I am leaning more towards the acrylic, but there are several different versions even of that (thick, thin, layered, etched) . I'll talk to the...

Re: Waiting

Waiting. S- I think I just saw a shot of Matt's inspired by this, but more abstract. I like them both. Matt's is a study of light and form. Yours is a story of the person who is sitting on this side of the blinds, unable or unwilling to see what's outside that window, waiting for...we don't know wh...

The sun was shining on the back of the strings of the blinds. Matt
