Re: Quebec Village + Geese

They're not a very organized gaggle of geese, are they. You could lose a little bit of foreground, perhaps even a bit of the right side. But the church detail is beautiful, as is the light and mood. So not every single day was rainy? :D

Re: From the outside looking in, from the inside looking out

I like #1 very much as well, but I am bothered by the white railing across the bottom of the frame. It seems to drag my eye down and away from the scene where I want my eye to stay. I think it could be cropped since the top of the window is tight to the frame, but alternatively (had I made it) I'd ...

Re: From the outside looking in, from the inside looking out

MInnie, thanks so much for your detailed comments. Looking forward to your own raindrops on glass pic and perhaps tips and further discussion. Carol, I very much appreciate your comments. Love the tree-as-privacy reference, perfect! And yes, lots of stories to imagine :) Frank, yes voyeurism did com...

Re: 'Class Act'

The adjustment that Graham suggested reminded me of the "small change" originally mentioned by Duck regarding the direction my bird is facing (on pole, with moonset). So neat how seemingly minor details and/or cropping can make such a difference. Matt describes (just above my comments here...

From the outside looking in, from the inside looking out

Shot from my car in the rain this morning. Haven't decided about #2 yet, I think because I have a "fair weather" shot from last year I like better. Your impressions, suggestions, edits appreciated!

Re: Barn With Red Door

Thanks Linda, glad you liked. As for anchoring my shots on that door, my whole set has the door in the same quadrant of the frame, whether a zoom in just of the barn, a midways shot with the yellow grass as foreground and the trees included, or this kind with the whole shebang in it, the door was t...

Re: Barn With Red Door

The first word that popped into my head was "tactile." Not sure if that's exactly correct usage, but I do very much feel I can touch the natural textures and I very much want to :) Adore the colors and subject and composition. Can you describe your thought process as to how you "built...

Re: Puff

Absolutely! It's breathtaking, Frank. Except...the crop I initially see because I have the screen enlarged (to be able to read text), is what I like best - with about 1/4 to 1/3 removed from the right side (keep the vertical). The grasses on left are more individually defined and the brightest cloud...
