Re: 'Naval Ships'

David, these are quite nicely done. Your processing added drama to a relatively tranquil scene. Though I can easily understand Linda's sentiments and the unavoidable cost of keeping our country safe, I was inspired to think of the aid missions that, perhaps, 'Comfort' has been assigned. During eart...

Re: 'Naval Ships'

Not knowing where to post these, I felt transportation fit the category best. While in Norfolk, Va a little over 3 years ago, we took a luncheon cruise, where I was able to capture some of the naval ships in port. The submarine didn't have a hull number showing so I'm taking a guess that it's the U...

Dave That's a great image. One of these years I should make a pilgrimage... In the meantime, I did a...

Re: 'Naval Ships'

I like your last shot of that behemoth ship, the POV makes it loom. For heavy iron/steel shots like these I like the harsh clouds and would advise that the waters should be correspondingly heavy - that is Gray, but not detailed as the clouds are. Perhaps everything Gray, but for the Gray ships whic...

Re: 'Colonial Williamsburg'

Love these pictures and each on their own stand up well. Where and when did the picture originate? It's like a candid time capsule Nitpicks; On the second picture you can see elements of effects of your filter around the man's hat, also, especially in the bush between the man and lady.

Re: 'Colonial Williamsburg'

I am amazed at the different emotional quality these two images produce. I like the woodcut for the detail, but I love the pastel for the soul. Thanks Piet !!! I like your description (detail & soul) between the two. I appreciate your comments as it gives more to ponder on with future images. D...

Re: 'Betsy Boss'

Dave, I would like to see what you do with this, but please don't mess with the pearls; they are gorgeous. Matt Matt, here is my original edit of 3 years ago. I'm leaning towards to staying with this version. Haven't made a decision as of yet though. This one has some areas that need a little more ...
