Re: Dave's Project 52

Never been much of a bird and flower kind of guy, but this one caught me by surprise. While out doing some yard work, just happen to spot a robins nest with a few little ones. I couldn't resist the opportunity to capture the little ones without momma getting upset and fly off, which why the diffused...

Re: Minnie's 52

Theme - Still Life (I think that can be interpreted two ways) This has been a difficult week. Last Tuesday my husband's youngest brother died unexpectedly, so most of this week has been spent traveling and doing what families do when a loved one passes away suddenly.

Re: Minnie's 52

Close up I took my little macro lens to my OtherHouse in Sallis yesterday to work on this assignment, and had too much fun with it so may post more than one thing. While rampaging through the head-high hayfield looking for blackberries I spotted this owl feather caught on a stalk and stopped to pho...

Re: Silver 3: Completely rebuilt for epic black and white.

So, what's the verdict? S- Steve, I haven't been able to acquire much info other than a price with support where Google never offered support. There is a 30 day free trial download that I may try but I suspect there won't be any difference to what I already have which is NikSiverEfex. If it ain't b...

Re: Mississippi Morning

This morning just after sunrise, in a rather dull gray fog that let too much light shine through but didn't give me any color. I lost detail in the sun most of which is cropped from the top. I'm not sure replacing it would do much good unless I'm printing it. What do you think? I would not be tryin...

I took this at sunset when I saw the breeze lifting that curtain and I wa...
