Re: Fort Gaines

Ernst has cropped well with image 2 and I concur . I am wondering if your glow or haze look in presentation #1 is purposeful for mood.... I liked Ernst's crop too. The glow is from the darned fogging of the lens. I mitigated it a bit but it wasn't possible to get shed of all of it so I just accepte...

Re: Fort Gaines

Really enjoy that lst image, but favor the 2nd even more. Some creative cropping would make that one much stronger. Ernst Here's would be my crop. I also cleaned it up with some old spotting thoughts. Thank you Ernst, for your comments and for taking your scissors to the second one. I agree it is i...

Fort Gaines

A noontime visit to Fort Gaines was not conducive to outside photography but the underbelly of the old civil war fort was fun to play in. All feedback is appreciated, edits welcome. I had a lot of trouble with lens fogging even though I conditioned the camera/lens in a way that has worked for me mos...

Re: A straw

All comment welcome.... I really like this casual portrait Frank, it's a kid doing what kids do, no posing or lighting, just life. You've maximized the available light and chosen the best angle. But for the rest, you've allowed her own personality to direct the image, right down to the nail polish ...

Re: "Sandhill Crane- In Flight" (+ 3D conversion)

The "morning fly-out" from their nighttime roost in the shallows at Bosque del Apache NWR is the perfect time and place to develop and hone one's skills at B.I.F. captures. I'd especially appreciate comments on the 3D conversion from the original 2D image. Of not familiar with viewing ste...

Re: 'DJ Chinn Chilla'

DJ Chinn Chilla DSC_2721 B&W tone2w.jpgI was searching through my archives last night and accidentally came across this one from a DJ battle competition in 2013. This DJ and I share the same last name, but even though there may be some relation, it seems it may be further down the tree. Thi...

Re: Darrington, Washington Through the eyes of my drone.

I often take extended hikes in the wilderness of western Washington with my trusty drone. This one however was captured out my front door at an altitude of 250' I use the Mavic Pro by DJI.

Re: Whale Watching

Played alittle hookey from the studio this morning. Our Chamber offer the members a free ride. Saw quite a few Gray Whales but enjoyed people watching more. ;-) Another nice boat-series that combines quasi-street photos with boat architecture and your own imagination. All are intriguing and origina...

Your use of light, the elegance of your posing, and the signature Ernst processing make this a fabulous and timeless portrait.

Re: When a Chair..

So now are you going to tell us what it is, and how it came to be that? :) I learn best in words, even though I create in pictures. I see it as a focal point amongst a splendidly chosen array of lines, angles, light, curves and tones, all of which embrace this common object and force our eyes to it....
