Re: 'Chug-a-lug, Chug-a-lug'

Super-interesting, Dave! There are aspects I love and aspects I don't. The light patterns on her palm, the foam and the lighting on the glass, the composition - specifically how much of the woman's face and how large the glass - very appealing. I don't care for the distortion, size and darkness of h...

Re: Fiery Fall Foliage

The lighter greens of #1 make that my favorite, as well. With the other two I want a reshoot using fill flash :D

Re: A bit of full moon(set) with a bird on a pole in an orchard

I love all three but thought I'd see what I might have ended up with on the original and found I would only have made minor adjustments. What impresses me most is seeing how you pushed past the realistic feel and went full artistic. I love it, absolutely love it! S- Thank you very much, Steve! One ...

Thanks so much for your analysis, Graham. I'm very appreciative!

Fantastic tip for the lock-on autofocus, Chuck. The cheerful buttercups are beautiful!

Re: Great Blue Heron in Hiding

I like the original picture a LOT, but have to agree that the heron is not very well hidden because of the rather bright blue. Was s/he really that color or did you punch it up? The thing is, it doesn't really matter except for the title, which (discussion of titles again) suggests that the bird sh...

Re: Great Blue Heron in Hiding

I love the photo but am not crazy about the color scheme, which emphasizes him in a way that makes it hard to understand how hidden he really is (I know how well they hide!) and the color solves the mystery too easily. I wonder about monochrome, or near-monochrome, for this one? Super observation a...

Great Blue Heron in Hiding

Sometimes you find one of these beauties nearly hidden in shadows and reeds. Suggestions, edits welcome for furthering my idea of mystery and discovery. Thanks!

Re: The Watcher

A "snap" describes most of my street shots, they have to be made in a "snap", a brief period of time, and they are a snapshot of life, a frozen moment. I'm proud to be a "snapshooter" :rofl: Chaos and cacophony sums up India to "T" you need to experience it i...

Re: The Watcher

Mesmerizing, dizzying! From your other work, and a movie or two I've viewed, this seems to almost perfectly summarize (a "snapshot" before that term became derogatory) Indian city life. Do you feel that way, Graham, or am I over-simplifying? My favorite aspect is your framing on the right ...
