Hint: I turned it a half turn, but it didn't really matter.
That center thingy looks like a hinge; drying rack?

How's this?

Much better. As a woman who's always had "shiny" skin, I know she'll appreciate the extra touches.

Re: Free headshots for building tenants

Well taken portraits of lovely young ladies with personality that you’ve captured. One thought- is there a way to reduce the reflective shine a little bit on the second young lady’s face? Especially on forehead and chin?

Re: Street photo around Yale campus

Downtown New Haven is Yale Country. Every other building is most likely owned by them. In one little corner sits a famous venue called Toad's Place, a small, cramped little building that has hosted many famous musical acts in its heyday. Next to that building is an alleyway leading to a series of a...

Re: Minnie's 52

like the B/W, really like the background on the second, but don't like the green of the flower itself - just a personal dislike of that particular color. But the reds and yellows and orange on the background work well with it. Thank ya. If I could remember how I got that desaturated look on the oth...

Re: little meanie face

thanks for that extensive list.. on the quick redo, I muted the colors on the texture more, and I did a horizontal motion blur - that helped remove some of the vertical lines that were pulling my eyes down (I think).. hum2S-1.jpg This is better. Easier to look at, and the texture isn’t fighting the...

Re: Swamp Child in Spring Clothes

this is my favorite of your swamp images. The depth is amazing, I would call it "hallway of mirrors" or some such. I love the tones and the richness of color. I'd consider darkening the top left so that the only major light remaining is in the center. The spot where swamp child stands is a wonderfu...

Saw this and thought I'd share the link.......http://www.bbc.com/news/in-pictures-43810323 Great stuff Frank, thanks for sharing. That last one of the horse reminds me of someone... reminds me of what Donald must have looked like in his youth. Though I am pretty sure the other end looks pretty much...

Re: little meanie face

our hummingbird feeder is close to the regular feeder. When the regulars show up, little meanie face dive bombs them and then returns to her perch and waits for her next victim. Only the fearless nuthatch can remain brave in her presence. The background was not so good, and the focus ended up on th...
