Re: Reassuring_Hands

Frank, I love your images and study them. I think you tend toward the light side while I tend toward the dark, so I can learn from you to bring balance to my photos. If you can remember, [highlight]what did you focus on to set exposure?[/highlight] Thanks. Matt Hey Matt, to be honest, that's the wr...

Re: A Frustrated Abstract Artist (Sometimes We Just Play)

This is my favorite egret of the season. He has a perfectly lovely green mask on his beak, but he hasn't found a mate. I think it is because of his bedraggled tail. He had spent much time alone beneath the dam last week, and since he and the other few stragglers could not get on their perches, they...

Re: Reassuring_Hands

I like it! Tells a sweet story. Strong composition, great back light. The onliest thing I keep wondering about is Baby's eyes are maybe a little (very, very little) too dark? I keep looking and waffling on whether to even say something... (?)

Re: Working With Very Old Images - Talk And Share

Some of the treasures in my old house were old photographs, which got me thinking about what photography was like for our long ago relatives. I have never tried restoring old photographs but plan to try my hand with a few, just to experiment. I encourage you to share some old photographs from your ...
