Re: To Title, Or Not To Title? That Is The Question.

I am in the "it depends" camp. If I am in a museum or gallery I always look for the card, and it can be annoying if it says "untitled." But I also think of Marcel Duchamp's 1912 painting Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2. I love much abstract art so if it didn't have a title I wo...

Re: White on White

Definitely by definition high key, and that first one is pretty much perfect! I love the outrageous bouffant in the third but agree that it seems unsharp.

Re: Not such a happy meal?

I well remember this terrific shot. The last time I saw it it made me sad. It still does. One thing about street is that it makes me try to construct a backstory. I see this woman as having arranged a first date, dressed extra nicely, told the date they'd meet at the nursery, she's been waiting near...

Re: An Homage to Chuck's Torii

What Chuck thinks is that Chuck liked the first one! Matt, ya shot it about the way I hope I would have. I have yours and Frank's open in tabs, and while Frank's is fine, I love them rocks. To me, the rocks are more interesting than the sky, which is very interesting but once you crop away the rip-r...

Re: A view from the Old Post Office Tower

I think its masterful, especially considering overcoming the challenge(s). The two tiny figures walking beneath the marquee provide perfect scale. Did you wait for them?

Re: Products on white

Those are pretty! I especially like the glycerin! (I used to make my own glazing solution out of EK Photo Flo and glycerin, cheaper than store-bought and just as good.)
