Re: Barn and Tree

Linda, Mahvelous, just mahvelous. Leading lines all over the happy place, not spooky. Playful sprites all around. Tones are delightfully delicate, light and well spread. Texture on the barn well raised. Not sure what's up on the roof through the window on the left. On my tiny screen, looks like wir...

The Road

Inspired by Mother Nature's light at the moment of shooting, I went further :)

1. Texture in sky - a problem?
2. Wet road, should I clone out those spots?
3. Am I stuck in that 'tween spot again, not reality but not far enough artsy fartsy?
Other feedback welcomed!

thank you for confirmation Linda! Based on your comments, I went with even greater contrast, and then got most of the reddish tint out of the background by desaturation.
IMO it's stunning!

Re: foggy dusk

Yes, Northern Harrier - a beauty! I like the contrast of #2, am wondering if more "golden hour" color would work? I see a lot of dark sepia/red here.

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 :)
