Re: Flight

Very, very striking, Minnie! I particularly love the slight pen & ink feel to the bird, delicately detailed in an obvious fantasy setting. Matt's mention of "decisive moment" is the very strong foundation for the exquisite interpretation shown here. This image could be an example for ...

Re: Out_the_Window

Frank I love the photo and the presentation except for one thing: the white line of the window frame beneath her chin. I'd mitigate that if I were you.

Re: The Ethics of Landscape Photography - Article for Discussion

This is some pretty heady stuff that we should discuss around a table with some beer, wine or maybe even single malt Scotch. (I am all for this last one.)

Believing it’s ok to pick up litter but not move a leaf sounds like a confused mind to me. For anything other than documentation, It’...

Re: The Ethics of Landscape Photography - Article for Discussion

I found the article to be well written and rich with food for thought. The term "willfully deceive" the viewer resonates with me because it's how I feel about composites that are not revealed as such. And yes, this feeling is contradictory to how I feel about edits that "enhance"...

Re: Flight

Minnie, I thought it would help me to write explicitly what I like in this image: the textured, parchment background; the stunning gradations of tones in the bird; the detail in the legs and toes; the off-center vignette on the bird; the decisive moment of beginning flight; the head and beak peekin...

Re: Artists palette

Hi All I will add one more of past work, then be gone for a week. I have a great fascination for painters studio, in particular their palette tables. Here is one I put my own touch upon. Thanks for looking. RBorud I see your touch. I like it, glowy neon colors and all. I am conflcted about the spid...
