Re: 'Colonial Williamsburg'

I like them both, Dave, but that second one has such a unique appeal with that pastel processing and the intense detail, which is a huge contradiction that somehow works. I find myself staring, endlessly, at a those exquisite details.

Re: The Story of Storr

Can only agree with comments made about the chap in no.1 Looks like he's using binoculars or perhaps taking a shot himself, so he needs something to be looking into. No.2, just a record shot for me - a look where I went image - not that there's anything wrong with those. No.3, Steve has bought the ...

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

I believe if you own the land you may do as you wish….if not then don’t harm the landscape. As for deception the only person I occasionally try to deceive is myself. 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"...
