Re: My new challenge: shooting in manual only.

I am glad Frank brought that up. I do not have a clue how to use the Program mode on my camera. I can and do use the others, but for me, Manual is so much easier because I control everything and I'm not likely to end up with a bad surprise because the camera picked something I wouldn't have picked. ...

Wild flower 2 Ways

Both are fairly significantly edited but following different routes. The first is true color. Both of them are shot and edited by an old lady with a hopefully temporary visual impairment so don't take for granted that I saw exactly what you're seeing, tell me.

Working With Very Old Images - Talk And Share

Some of the treasures in my old house were old photographs, which got me thinking about what photography was like for our long ago relatives. I have never tried restoring old photographs but plan to try my hand with a few, just to experiment. I encourage you to share some old photographs from your o...

Re: Covered_Foot

Nice moody shot of what beach days are all about. These are hard to come by on a busy beach, and take us back to a time when they weren't so busy. Your processing helps with the magic.

Re: Photo Rorschach

I'm gonna post mine in your thread and see if anyone finds it. If not, I'll try starting a new thread in the contests section and see if that works. In pM as in most forums, having stuff where people can find it best is the key to success.

Re: mockingbird workflow

I really enjoyed following along Piet. You turned this one from snapshot to an artistic photo one step at a time. I may have missed it, but I'm not sure about correcting color casts with curves. Did you post a link on another thread? Sounds interesting. The biggest changes you made involved getting...
