This is a mash-up of stuff I was playing with late last night. Textures of various types both made and acquired, slapped around my fireplace and topped off with a little tomten and his pet pig.

They look rather toasty Minnie !!! Very creative project that payed off. Well done indeed !!!

'Cinnamon Girl'

A composite I put together from New Orlean. The background taken outside of Café Du Monde and Cinnamon Girl was taken from Bourbon Street onto a side street which I can remember the name. My concerns are .... direction of lighting and is it realistically believable. Posted is the original background...

Re: Minnie's 52

I spun silhouette this week. I well know what that means for me to do, but I went a little different road first, because this was the week that I help my cousin at the annual state Craftsmen Guild festival, and her craft is cutting silhouettes! So, I took a photo of her cutting one. Then, because I...

Re: 'Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks'

Minnie you may not have a fisheye, but you definitely have an eye for composition !!! Your second one, with the ducks and the white bird (species unknown to me) is a great capture. One that I did not get, and the last one with the squirrel, you captured the black-bellied whistling ducks under the tr...

Great fish eye shot..ducks scared of water, too funny....cute squirrel

Thanks Frank !!! Yeah, it appears they are afraid of the water, but I think it's the nature of the breed? A new one on me.

Re: A Cayman Islands Bank

You have composed the chicken very well with the person at the table Minnie. In a way it's quite comical, because the chicken appears to have an eye out for him in some way. I'm not caring much for the shot of the plaster. Seems too heavy, maybe reduce the opacity some? I do think it is a marvelous ...

Re: 'BackWoodsMan'

Don't see any lemons or trash here Dave, well done. the darkness left seems to cause a bit of unbalance for me so I might add some of that bokeh around in there. Edit: My verbal communication skills are crap Dave so hope you get this.....after a longer look his left eye brightness doesn't seem righ...

'Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks'

Street photography, breakfast and a trip in Audubon Park, New Orleans, we found a pleasant relaxing environment !!! Except for those “1000s of black-bellied whistling ducks!” I found that the duck were unique to any duck I have ever seen.Their beaks and palmate/feet was a color I had not seen in any...

'BackWoodsMan'

While out yesterday morning with beautiful spring like weather,I felt I should take advantage of it for some past time street shots. Altho, I didn't come away with much, I was able to capture this one. I'm not very happy with it, but posting anyway to see what sticks and what doesn't. This gentleman...
