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!

Re: In suspense

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!

Re: GBH made fanciful

Boy, that is just somethin'! :clap: I don't know if I would have the patience to wait half that long, 'specially if there were skeeters. Fabulous shot! Thank you Chuck! For some reason, blurry-on-purpose pp looks better to me in the editor than after uploaded to a website :) It was a bit cool and e...
