Re: The Grand Canyon

Bright Angel Canyon --Bob Lovely shot Bob. The clouds are an amazing as yours typically are, with all the delicious details. The scene itself has a bit of an illusion built into it, whether you meant it that way or not. There is an initial impression, to me at least, that I'm looking at and beneath...

Re: Minne's NEW 2019 52

I wish my memory was so good... I like your use of color on those last two shots, particularly the girl's red shirt - works really well with the greens and window framing. Glad to see ya, Piet, and thanks for looking. Hope you'll check out the Onion Moon thread and play along with one of your own c...

C’mon, Duck, take the challenge! Make a Duck-Original out of flotsam and jetsam you grab up around that scary studio.

Sure, why not. I'll take a look around and see what comes together.
Looking forward to seeing what inventive thing you come up with!

Re: 'T. R. Pugh Memorial Park' (composite)

Thanks for sharing this well managed composite. Using photos that are composed and angled so similarly was a smart move. You actually moved the shadow with her! Did you select it with the original selection or select it separately? I saw a video recently about a special technique for selecting shado...

Re: Onion Moon ( Just For Fun - Wanta Try It Yourself? )

I do say, the onion moon is a good one. I think astronomers should pick one of those lunar seasons and actually call it the Onion Moon . I can see the amateur photographers around the globe lining up for that shot already. :D C’mon, Duck, take the challenge! Make a Duck-Original out of flotsam and ...

Re: Mr. Belvedere, I presume?

Lovely scene. I think you were right to leave the other buildings in. They balance the composition while still taking a background role and don’t detract from the star of the show.

Re: 'Flamingo City'

Wonderful series of my very favorite bird (I used to beg my parents for a flamingo as a pet when I was a kid). The second one is my favorite, but the are all pretty awesome.

Once, before I ever had a camera, I saw a flamingo mating ritual, it was like a line dance.

I'm lovin' the concept Minnie, but most of all I'm lovin' your artistic vision. I'll have to put my attempt on the back burner for now thou.

You are so far ahead of most of us, you don't need practice, but I'd love to see a new Chinn composite!

Onion Moon ( Just For Fun - Wanta Try It Yourself? )

In my occasional lazy midday time at the country house, I find odd projects to shoot. I made a challenge for myself, and I invite you to do similar: 1. I picked up 3 unrelated objects in the kitchen and set them on a cloth, in a random arrangement but not overlapping. 2. Shot the scene (without as m...
