Well, you made me smile on an unsmiling day, so that's power!

Is Chuck a burly bar bouncer or a space alien? If we ever get a pM meet-up, we'll find out for sure! Fun project, and thanks for sharing your fun results.
You're welcome! :thumbup:

Re: Revisiting an old School Exercise

good gosh@! The symmetry twins look the devil and angel on your shoulders (clearly one eats better than the other). Character is never present in perfection. The true you has character. Thanks, Piet! I kinda like the beefy guy myself. The other guy is beyond wimpy, but so am I so there y'go. :lol: ...

Re: A failed pan.

As you know, panning is hard. Shutter priority is the way to go because you need to have a shutter that is slow enough to blur the background but that is entirely relative to the speed of the target. A fast moving bird might still need a faster shutter than, say, a passing bicycle, but it depends. T...

Re: Oooooom

I love the picture! Great, out-of-the-box angle. Back light! But I can still see into the shadow. Strong texture. And of course Piet's poem. (OK)

Revisiting an old School Exercise

This is pretty silly. Silly, and not pretty. At all. I had this appalling cell-selfie (I was testing the "portrait mode" OH-KAYY?!) that was more-or-less down the middle and it reminded me of (1) how gosh awful old and ill I look, and (2) an exercise we did way back when.

Re: Another fake moonrise

Speaking of that horizontal fenceline, I actually started not to care that much for this --- until I scrolled it down enough to crop just above the fence wire. Now you'd have just trees, MOOOON and birds. Crop a little from the top as well for balance. I find the fence and lower foreground a little ...
