Re: HDR_ how many exposures do you need?

I am thinking that we have a couple of factors. First is the idea that capturing the maximum Raw detail available is important (for our sensors, getting the maximum dynamic range). But second, turning the information available into the best image possible. The second (I think) is more critical (thou...

Re: little meanie face

DEMON HUMMINGBIRDS! RUN! RUNNNN!!! Okay, nuff'a that. I liked the first one fine, and do not find it at all overworked as to my eye it looks very much like a painting rather than a photograph, and that's why I think it works wonderfully. It could be an Audubon color plate. I find the various rework...

Re: little meanie face

after a restless night and no morning coffee, the little bird is more cranky than ever. Walk by at your own risk.

Re: little meanie face

Always just an opinion Piet, but I like the warmth on the hummer in the original...you've lost that with the second, maybe mask the hummer back out. Always dependent on subject, but textureI I find hard to get right without distracting from subject....here just a hint should suffice as any more dis...

Thanks Piet. I still don’t know exactly what I did to end up with the second one.

Re: Street photo around Yale campus

it works for me, the light on the flagstone is wonderful (though for spooky, a smaller patch of it might serve).. The bright shirt is a nice counterpoint to the medieval stonework. This would be a cool place to see in another 400 years, after the flagstone and steps gets so that it doesn't look so c...

Re: Minnie's 52

like the B/W, really like the background on the second, but don't like the green of the flower itself - just a personal dislike of that particular color. But the reds and yellows and orange on the background work well with it.
