Re: Judas Tree - spring study

Nice work with each, I'm not sold on the paper word look though....just seems like a distraction for me Thanks Frank. I understand. But I love words and paper and typefaces.. what more can you expect for someone who read a book named Elements of Typographic Style for the fun of it? :D I’m just weird.

Re: Judas Tree - spring study

I like what you did in both on their own, however I am wondering how the two concepts would look married together. My only concerns are the overly wordy amount of text (perhaps shorten it) and the spotted look of the bold caps with that particular font. The caps really stick out (think in terms of ...

Re: "Makah Maiden"

You photo is an inspiration, as always. But thank you for sharing the Curtis image that inspired you to make it! It reminds me so much of Afghan Girl and I wonder if McCurry had any influence from it. Curtis's work amazes me. I was lucky to see a special exhibit of his work some years ago at the Smi...

Re: AI Software

it looks like it did a pretty good job. Do you get the feeling that it handles each image uniquely? Or do you feel that it does a similar thing for each (better contrast, sharpening, auto-color, etc) It appears to handle each image based on exposure, color, contrast, noise and sharpening. It does b...

Happy St Patricks Day

A little late, but that's OK, it can last as long as we want.
