Re: Puff

Interested in anything one might have to say about this image.....but wondering if there is any impact felt at all. I like this a lot Frank, the colors are great and the way you've captured/rendered the clouds is really nice - there's so much depth and there's lots of detail but it's rendered softl...

Re: Barn With Red Door

Minnie, Superb dof, front to back. And I especially appreciate the muted colors of fall; too often, fall foliage photos are juiced up beyond recognition. And that door speaks to a sense of whimsey on the owner's part. The fence post and tree just to its left are in such sharp focus that they create...

Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion- Oct 2017 - Gursky's Rhein II

Minnie, Welcome home. Take care of the leg. Photographers need to get around and be nimble, and be quick. I enjoy the tonal range in the first, and the muted tones in the second. I would have thought Rhein II for the first but not for the second; it doesn't contain enough contrast and density for m...

Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion- Oct 2017 - Gursky's Rhein II

Y'know, I didn't think I had anything Gursky-esque, but I was doing some review and came across this. It was made in July, 2016, near Ozaukee, Wisconsin, on Lake Michigan. Daphne was still able to walk when this was made. She used a staff and did quite well, enjoying the walk very much. It was one ...

Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion- Oct 2017 - Gursky's Rhein II

Since I'm the one who encouraged others to post a "Rhein II"- ish image, I should do the same. So here's the two I've taken, and I confess to recalling Rhein II when I took them, in a vague sort of way, and shot the images for my own fun. The first was taken from the cliff above the Missi...

Matt, a bit a MinnieSermon if you can bear it: Never resist posting, especially when you have doubts about an image. The most helpful feedback you get will be about images that you have doubts about. Those who respond will either soothe your doubts or validate them, and some may have good suggestion...

Re: Matt's Project 52: A Year in B&W

Thanks Linda. I took that one from the street (Street Photography?) which allowed the low angle since the lawn sits above a 5-foot wall. So the pumpkins were at eye level. We head back to MD next week leaving New England behind till next year so I need to keep my finger on the shutter while here. T...
