Re: Cypress & Ice

Well, I just plain love it. I can't recall if you ever try to sell anything. You might get some bites if you had this and others you've made up on a stock site. It would make wonderful, restful wall art for offices and waiting rooms... Thank you Chuck. I've never tried stock but Adobe keeps sending...

Re: Cypress & Ice

The motion blur of trees I've both done and seen from others is usually just from the base of the trees upwards. Your inclusion of foreground (or is this composite? I wasn't sure what you were explaining) brings additional complexity and interest. The darker shapes in middle are another terrific el...

IF LOOKS COULD KILL...

The new season under way, the birds are already vying for control. At the moment, the blues are putting on a show of force and outnumbering/outmuscling the egrets.

Re: A Feather Dropped From the Swamp Geisha's Fan

This single red leaf was all that was left of the Shy Tree's flamboyant foliage, and it got caught in an interesting ice formation so I had to try with it. I'm not satisfied, so if you have ideas, please share or show an edit. Maybe a crop from the bottom? I dunno. I love this, and please keep the ...

Re: Bugs and Flowers, Oldies but Goodies We Hope

[...] I would be one frustrated old lady trying to find anything without this system. And that's why I tell people to append a short description after the date. That acts as a memory trigger when searching outside of LR. ;) Not disrupting your system too much, I would recommend the following; 2018 ...

Re: 'Musically Inclined'

Pulled one from the archives that had been forgotten about from New Orleans April, 2016 Now it's off to discover more? That's a creative way to crawl inside the music! Very creative approach with rich tones and enough details to find your way through. Was I with you when you shot this one? I can't ...

Re: Let the Games Begin! 2018 Dam Bird Jamboree

Minnie, I have never heard of the magic mode. What brand camera is it? (I have enough cameras--3; just curious.) Nothing I can find on the internet gives an explanation like yours. I am happy to hear you shoot 1000 pictures when you go out. I may not shoot that many, but I take a lot and wonder whe...

Re: Minnie's 52

Jan 15- Self Portrait. Ugh. Well, this is an experiment I don't think I'll do much more of, but I did want to do something kind of original, so I used the camera to take a picture of me taking a picture of myself with cell phone.. or something like that. It was the only way I could figure to get a ...
