obligatory moon shot from last night..

Good version of the obligatory moon. I didn’t do mine due to various issues including Christmas frenzy, eye surgery and family events. I feel better about it since you took care of it. I can’t wait to see the hawk streaking across it...

Re: black capped chickadee

hey thanks Min... One thing about the processing that I am learning. I read in one of my painting books, that well lit areas are rich in detail and texture, and that darker areas (shadows) do not have such detail. So processing wise, I first bring it up in ACR and mess with lifting the shadows and ...

Hanging around when business is slow can be SO boring, so I took my old camera and ipad where I'd have something to play with.

Re: black capped chickadee

post processing perhaps a little harsh, but practice is practice.. blackCappedChickADeeS.jpg Just gorgeous Piet. I love the way you're turning birds into art. I have felt for some time that bird photography has become very limited by the emphasis on high end equipment and almost scientifically prec...

Re: Photoshop issue

Have resolved my issue....so simple if you know where to look.....just change from drop shadow to none... Yup, that's where I figured it would be. Adobe is bad about deciding what we want in our behalf. Some of these choices will return every time there is an update and over-write your own preferen...

So you get not only the physical characteristics to let us recognize the bird, but you also let us know what it feels li...

Re: seekers of Truth

I love the image but love the thoughts you're so eloquently expressing in the quote and in the discussion even more. I feel utterly out of touch with almost half my fellow citizens in ways I haven't experienced since the 60s. The difference is, now the government itself is taking the extreme positio...

Re: Photoshop issue

Good to know...I'm 2020...I'll have to ponder the situation for a while. Thanks for the update I hadn't really thought about it but realize after you mentioned it that I've been seeing that shadowbox effect for a while now. I'm using the latest CC version. It may be removable in preferences for app...
