Re: Dave's Project 52

Week #8 and moving right along !!! I went out Sunday for awhile and came back with a couple of images that were make do. Not being satisfied I went out again Monday. Struggling for unique subject matter, I was about to give up for the day because I was running into a lighting issue. Having been to D...

Re: Dave's Project 52

Week #7 of Project 52 and a much needed "mind meld" from me is in order for creative ideas of subject matter. ... There's a power and beauty to these images that remind of something I'd see in a gallery showing. It's your composition and use of space, and the processing of course, but it's more tha...

Re: 'The Future Ain't What it Used to Be'

Interesting image, Dave. I see the contrast between the two and the way that contrast is reflected in the atmospheric images you used. I like the dreamy feel you are pursuing. For me, the area right at the front of the man’s face is too dark. I understand the reasoning, but the dropoff of the light...

Re: Bicycle

Transportation, things, decided here, I dunno....good a place as any Frank I'm not much of a architecture sorta person, but I'll take a stab at it. I do like the leading line that the building provides for the subject. However, showing more of the walkway would have created another leading line, bu...

Re: Ella, the spotted cat

Nice captures Matt !!! The color versions helps to show the impact of the makeup that Ella, the spotted cat has on, but on a personal note, I prefer the B&W. The last one (B&W) is my favorite. It appears to be a tighter crop from the second one, but I really like how you have framed and cropped it. ...

Re: Minnie's 52

Elm Moon Last week I spun "Moon" which was a joke since not only am I terrible at moon photography, but we had overcast and rain all week. One morning at my insomniac hour I thought to check it and found the moon visible so took a few shots. It was only visible through the elm tree out front, so th...

Re: 'The Future Ain't What it Used to Be'

I thought I would post the photos that were used for this composite. I used two different sky backgrounds and blended them together, but its so subtle I ask myself why.

Re: 'The Future Ain't What it Used to Be'

I do not know if it appeals to most, but it appeals to me. I like the moodiness of it. Matt makes a good point about their disconnection - they are in different worlds. This is either a problem or an opportunity, and Matt nailed it, it produces a very interesting tension. And I agree with Linda, th...

Re: 'The Future Ain't What it Used to Be'

A composite in the works as always. Not sure if this one appeals to most. Dave, What I see here: an aging gentleman, musing on things past, perhaps his wife who has died, or a lover lost, or a child who has moved away and rarely calls or visits. The woman, for her part, seems oblivious to the man, ...
