Re: 'Naval Ships'

I just love the pictures, Dave. I tend to agree with Linda that the clouds might be juuuuust a tad overcooked, but obviously that's a totally subjective judgment. Maybe I wouldn't have taken them quite that far, but gosh they are gorgeous, and when nature hands you clouds like that on a platter, wel...

Re: DANGER!

WOW! To see one out in the open like that! It's easy to see why they are marked as they are since this one might be hard to spot against the ground unless moving. They are magnificent animals important to their ecosystems. Years ago we were on an instructor-led geology hike in northern California. M...

Re: Organ Pipe National Monument

Re: Bear & All

My favorite is the sleeping koala. I read somewhere they are only awake about 4 hours a day. :)

Re: The Ethics of Landscape Photography - Article for Discussion

What a terrific discussion! :yay: I very much like the fairly simple concept of "Do No Harm." It strikes me that moving something within a scene, either to include or exclude it, does no harm. Taking a folding saw to a branch (or worse) does harm (well Duh). Setting a fire under Delicate A...

Re: 135

I like this very much! It puts me in mind of Gursky (again with the Gursky). Ir's the division into thirds. The lower third has the run of vertical pickets bound with a board. The narrow middle third is the porch rail with bars running in two directions, like ladders. That gives way to the upper thi...
