Re: August Fingerwork #7 - Gallinule

yepper, what Frank said. However... perhaps... Words grab and suck the eye right in, so the image feels top heavy. maybe softer words, or move them to the bottom to ground them.

Re: 'Soldier Boy'

you captured that sense of time - I think it awesome. Critique - the sharpness of the helmet does not match the sharpness of the face and this produces a type of dissonance (which perhaps you were shooting for)..

Re: Piers at play

PietFrancke; Wish I could do image processing to your level. "interesting shot and process - this looks like a place to visit over and over - A foggy day comes to mind, a boat or better yet, ship at the end, sunrise or sunset, the list goes on and on." Played with it a bit more. I did put a boat in...

Re: Smoothing Water After The Fact

Do you recall which Topaz simplify you used? I can stand to smooth water here and there too! I like the mood of your new image very much.

Re: Saturday Night in Memphis, 1911

All a matter of taste I guess...I will say your blending is very well done and I am liking what you have shown us so far... Thanks, Frank. The point of the whole batch of stuff I’m doing is to figure out that darned blending and bringing in multiple elements. It’s turning out to be harder than it l...

Re: Smoothing Water After The Fact

the colors are a matter of choice, I don't care for them in that the canoe is still in the original palette and thus isn't blending in as well as it could (my opinion, your mileage may vary). So I'm just not liking the colors chosen - your water blur effect on the other hand is fantastic! With it, ...

Re: Golden Hour Streamside - Natchez Trace, Somewhere in TN

I think overall it too vivid. So Cheat and leave the stream/reflections as they are, but tone down the shores and upper leaves.

Re: Saturday Night in Memphis, 1911

I like your variety of objects. My critique is that the postcard of the building demands (and gets) attention, and as such, perhaps should have the center stage instead of the man and woman -- or fade it away more. As is, the image is top-heavy. Love the stuff you are doing Min!!
