Last Tango On the Dam

This is one that has lingered in the unedited slush pile for a while. I did a little light editing yesterday and posted it to a FB group I belong to for pix of egrets and herons. For some reason the crowd loved it more than most anything I've posted, so I thought I'd share it here to see what THIS c...

Re: Plastic Flowers

Not sure why these flowers are so grainy. Maybe I should have converted to srgb 8bit Before posting? Also the white balance changed between shots. Only the flowers show as a little grainy. Maybe their actual texture? Or a composite with the flowers at a grainier camera setting or editing? As for WB...

Re: Guess What?

Adding this collage that I did to practice some compositing things I'm still trying to learn. I am afraid I forget new skills faster than I learn them...which means I never get good at anything.

Re: Plastic Flowers

I like this! I don't care if the flowers are plastic, it's still a cool execution. Love the controlled color palette. You are right to include the statue, she makes the image. I like the first one best, with its soft dreamy look. Intriguing work that can be turned into dozens of variations with diff...

Re: Guess What?

Detail shot. Imagination runs a bit wild. We were on a search for the hideouts of one of Mississippi's most notorious murderers, Albert Lepard, when we came upon the Edsel graveyard about a mile from where he lived. He was first famous for murdering his aunt by tying her to her bed and setting the b...

Re: Guess What?

OMG - I understand Edison learned lots of ways that a light bulb doesn't work, and I understand that your father raised on heck of a daughter - and I am sure there is way more to know in that story.

Re: Guess What?
