Re: I would love some feedback on a photo

Hi Deirdre, so glad to see you post for critique! I hope you'll post lots more and share your ideas about photos the rest of us post! All of us benefit from having other eyes on our pictures. Every time I post an image I learn something new from my compatriots here. This image features some to-die-f...

Re: Wheels Up

Paula, you always tend to have a flair for whimsy that I really enjoy seeing in your work. That kind of whimsy doesn't come easily for me and I have to work at that kind of creativity. With your permission, here is an attempt at realizing Piet's idea with a few added elements. Hopefully it starts g...

Thanks Frank.

Re: Wheels Up

you have detail in the flying bird, emphasize it (I think). Perhaps make it a bird runway and add a couple more, one in the process of taking off and move the flyer a little to the right (mixed feelings about all that). I am troubled by the hard ugly green water to the front - but don't know what t...

Re: Kids and a Canon

When I crop to include more of the canon, the focus seems to move off the kids. And when I crop tighter on the kids, the canon seems to loose distinction. All comments welcome. FYI, this was a street scene. I obtained parents’ permissions, verbal, before shooting.0A10E73C-76A0-4E1E-886B-808BA46E9A7...

Re: Art Gallery of NSW

Thank you for the comments. Has anyone else taken their camera into an art gallery in their home town. Be nice to see? Have fun; I have taken my camera to the local art gallery twice this summer. I make these treks with my little 7 year old grandson who is an aspiring artist, and can already hold h...

Wheels Up

Another dam bird I need your advice and opinion about. I'm considering including it in a contest collection and have never shown it anywhere. It's another dredged from the slush heap. The contest is art rather than photography so the somewhat artistic approach and the use of texture won't be an issue.

Re: Help Me Figure Out Something To Do With This

yeah, or Gulliver... The scene seems so real that I don't see the miniaturization. So something else has to be introduced to allow the scale to be felt. That’s part of my problem. They look like a crowded harbor of ugly boats. There was nothing there in real life other than our rental car which wou...
