Yellows and blues, leading lines, light and dark, solid and texture, it's all there!

What was it that made you stop and say, This Is The One? S-
Cause I’ve always wanted a leading line curve in the swamp but there wasn’t one, till I spotted this one.

Re: Take A Knee

The second I saw the title I thought Why Didn't I Think Of That? Love it! The image is haunting and beautiful, and the ice is an amazing backdrop, you would think it was a studio cloth if you hadn't known, but I especially like the shaft of light coming down on the knee. There's a story here of lif...

The Rainbow Factory

The factory only seems to run in winter. For a change, this one is about the dam instead of the birds. Or maybe it's about the rainbow and the dam and birds are just context. At any rate, I appreciate all feedback, including edits. If it's too much stuff, I may have a smaller zoomed in version that ...

Re: My day job

Quite amazing art, Duck. Though we have seen evidence of the depth of your artistic talent, this is the first real window into the tattoo parlor expression of that talent. Great stuff, the animals in particular for me. I'm curious as to how you think the photography and the tattoo art fit together? ...

Re: So sad

A couple years ago, I photographed a co-worker, her daughter, and grandson. I learned today that her daughter died in a car accident. It's such a shock to learn that someone who was in front of your camera full of life and happiness has passed away. It was the young lady on the left, Gwenndolynn Bl...

Impactful image of a place I bet you know well :D

Looks like something out of a stock portfolio, which means that it's well done!

Re: Dave's Project 52

Here it is week #3 of my project 52 and do wonder if I'm gonna be able to keep up. It is way too early to give up Dave! Hang in there. You know you it's good for us to be out on a regular basis with camera in hand! These are good images that use the receding/repeating elements of the aligned bikes ...

Re: The Road

It's a great composition, and would work well in color or monochrome. I love the textured look of the sky, but am not crazy about the color, it seems like there is too much uniformity of color with the clouds and land, too much of a good thing. I think there's ways to work with it via masking/blendi...

Re: Barn and Tree

Put me down for Dead-Eye too. The building seems more ominous/lonely in that version. I really like the monochrome too, it would be my favorite. Somehow the hops apparatus is a stronger part of the composition in monochrome (the shadows and clouds give that one another assist because of all those ma...

Re: foggy dusk

I like #2 a lot, the reddish/orangish one with a textured look in the background. That warmth seems to make the hawk really come alive. A wonderfully evocative image. And a good example of a non-centered, non-Rule of Thirds image.
