So I need some straightening out here...I have not been commenting much in this section as I didn't think any kind of critique or opinion or whatever you want to call it was suppose to be given and I'm rarely one that just says nice shot..would love some guidance as I would like to try and contribu...

Re: When the Koi Won't Kooperate, KOMPOSITE! :D

I think you did a great job! The murky water is a super counterpoint to the harshly lit plants above. A very engaging result.

Considering the size of SD cards these days, and ease of download to computer, I can't imagine why anyone would bother to delete shots in-camera. :|

Re: GBH made fanciful

Minnie and Piet, thanks so much for your interest and your comments.

Piet, I like your suggestion and I can see all kinds of stuff I'd do differently now that I've been away from it a few days, lol. Appreciated!

Unique and interesting, with all kinds of possible interpretations. Love Piet's "we got to know you before you were famous." Break a leg, Minnie!

Re: Very Green Things in Lauritzen Gardens Conservatory

... have discovered a pretty cool "cheat." Shooting all raw, my Sony records everything on the full 3:2 frame, even though it's set to crop to 4:3. I can, therefore, revert to the 3:2 at will. Also, if I conclude that I wanted something on one end of the frame more than the other, I can s...

Re: Very Green Things in Lauritzen Gardens Conservatory

That could be an interesting discussion in itself: Are the terms framing and cropping interchangeable? I think I use them that way. I got "crop in [the] camera" from my instructors, another way of saying "fill the frame." Crop. Frame. Well, I looked it up. It wasn't easy as Gigg...

Re: Very Green Things in Lauritzen Gardens Conservatory

Thank you, Linda. I especially appreciate your analysis of that composition because I did give it some thought. That picture was cropped in camera. I was trained to try to crop in camera but I sometimes get in too tight, leaving myself with no place to go, so I try to pull back a little now to give...

Re: Very Green Things in Lauritzen Gardens Conservatory

Yummy backlighting in #1. I really like the composition - where you chose to position the center of the plant was particularly important because it's so bright. The shadows and light add so much to this wonderful study of lines...and green :)

Re: Grazing

Ernst, thanks for a second look :) Piet and Minnie, so glad you enjoyed the scene and the pp. Guess my concerns about composition aren't well founded? Or are offset by mood? Appreciate your time and interest very much!
