Re: Barn and Tree

I like Chuck's dead eyes. Through a hole, you would likely only see the wall behind anyway. The vineyards feel like fences and prison - I would consider going b/w and spook the scene up. Thank you for commenting, Piet! The light on the pretty colored tree was what caught my eye. But it just so happ...

Barn and Tree

I decided to try poking holes in the barn windows to let the sky in :D Otherwise, the three pics are the same (did "save for web" but am going back next time to regular re-size). What interested me in the scene was 1. a bit of clearing with blue sky (seriously light-deprived in these parts, but abov...

you use your car a lot... there is a difference between a cheap tripod and a well-made tripod. BUT, to carry in the trunk of your car, perhaps make a Bean Bag.
Thank you Piet, good tip!

Re: Image quality comparison, please

[...] While my own aging eyes see almost no difference in clarity and brightness, the Chromebook appears to show blues as more cyan than the Asus laptop. Different uncalibrated monitors from different manufacturers (and different ages) will have variations in color temperature. Yeah, and I'm not ye...

Re: Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head

Fun series! Though I've seen photos of GBH's with super-sized catches, I've never personally seen anything bigger than a bullfrog :)

Love the first image Linda !!! I don't have all the answers, but do think a tripod would be a benefit for the fact you can have more control with the shutter speed, ISO and aperture. Although, a tripod can be a pain at times, but also necessary sometimes.

Thanks so much, Dave.

Re: Let the Games Begin! 2018 Dam Bird Jamboree

Reply to your first pic, posted earlier in thread: This is fantastic! Have you posted any from this perspective before? Probably, and I just don't remember. Sure do love the wider view for the sense of size and power against the delicate birds. You could whiten that line of foreground icicles a bit ...

Re: Image quality comparison, please

Like you, Steve, I have both files open in tabs as I always do so I can toggle between them. I can see absolutely NO difference between them.... Thanks so much for checking, Chuck. One difference with "save for web" is it strips exif. And now that I have a new laptop which, for now anyway, I'm keep...

Re: Cypress & Ice

The motion blur of trees I've both done and seen from others is usually just from the base of the trees upwards. Your inclusion of foreground (or is this composite? I wasn't sure what you were explaining) brings additional complexity and interest. The darker shapes in middle are another terrific ele...
