Re: In suspense

I see that branch falling - it doesn't look suspended though granted, suspense as in waiting to crash on the ground, it looks like a definition of gravity. Love the textures on this and the leaves upper left to give this context. The branch falls - Minnie however is a bird that flies. She can defy ...

It is a great leap, but the faith is very lacking. I am expecting nothing but disaster to befall me for daring to step into this circle of fire.

Re: Reeds and Water Lillies

This is one of those images I like for reasons you probably did not intend. Overall, the black and white treatment makes it hard to distinguish the many parts, though this is precisely how I would have shot the scene. I am hoping you'll share a color version, because I can see it turning into a Mone...

In suspense

This is how I feel right now, with my first exhibit coming up in two weeks, and utterly lacking confidence and lacking knowledge of how to pull it off.

All comments (on the picture) welcome!

Re: GBH made fanciful

I like your artistic rendition, especially the emphasis you placed on the white ruff around his neck.

Re: Sculptures, Omaha's Lauritzen Gardens

These seem not to fit well anywhere else, but I think these will be the last of my Lauritzen group. Many of you know that I am pretty eclectic, photographing whatever interests me, whatever passes in front of my lens. At my age I admit I tend to photograph a lot from my own eye level (I am six feet...

Re: Another kind of lily

I love it! I see nothing to critique. The light!!! The light is exquisite, and the composition is wonderful, with the two tiny developing leaflets balancing the great flower, like tiny moons orbiting a gas giant. :thumbup: Thank you Chuck. I wasn't sure about that quirky little touch in the left co...

Another kind of lily

Different breed, and in color. I don't think this one is native but an immigrant that's adapted to our environment. All suggestions, critique, edits welcome-

Re: Canon 1dx problem

Now that's a depressing answer from Canon! You have my sympathy. I'm glad you've got a backup till you figure out what to do next. Keep us posted, and show us some great photos with the 1DS. The best camera is always the one you have with you anyway.
