Re: To B&W or not to B&W, that is the question

Thanks for this, Matt; "whether photography should be interpreting or representing. " I think we all ask ourselves that question many times. Does it come down to seeing something in that scene that your mind interprets as being different as seen by the camera? Interpretations: It's nice to see what ...

Re: Piers at play

Thx Minni and Piet;
You are so, so right in your comments. Looking at that 2nd picture there are still mistakes.
I am too impatient in my work and pay the price for it.
Most of my ideas and inspiration come from Arunz/Rafy_A/BlueLightning to name a few on youtube.
Have fun;

Re: Piers at play

PietFrancke; Wish I could do image processing to your level. "interesting shot and process - this looks like a place to visit over and over - A foggy day comes to mind, a boat or better yet, ship at the end, sunrise or sunset, the list goes on and on." Played with it a bit more. I did put a boat int...

Re: Experimenting with liquid pour shots

Duck; Thx for the gentle slap on the backside... :lol: Looking at the wine photos brought me back to college days where we did fluid into glasses where careful use of bounce cards to carefully expose the glass rims. Why oh why didn't I think of your method and get rid of the bloody thing. What a fab...

Re: August Fingerwork #5 - If there be dragons

""I am grateful for a place where that's possible. I am a refugee from a different forum where experimentation was sometimes less welcome, and I appreciate the folks who share our village!"" I too am a survivor from another forum, where a picture may be presented, but if not shot at a precise angle,...

Piers at play

On another post called " 5 Ways to Simplify and Improve your Landscape Photography " there was a picture of a pier leading into the sea. Having a slow shutter speed, it blurred the water nicely. The attached picture had structures leading into the sea, but I didn't drag the shutter, so I thought I'd...

Re: August Fingerwork #3 - Lilacs and More Misplaced Music etc

"" I fooled with it a few different ways and can't remember why I chose this particular one. The lilacs are supposed to be the main subject, but the butterfly worked his way in. I meant him to be just a little translucent surprise in the background but I liked the ghostly way I got him rendered and ...
