Re: Camera Club Exercise, The Camera You Have With You

good shots - I like the brick best also. The plants look too waxy (at least the dead one does - maybe the live one IS waxy). I love your story that went with the shots. I can just see you skulking around on the outskirts while the rest of them lined up for their turn at the bridge.

Re: A study in dueling

just WOW! Love how you replaced the background with the tent(?) and the color gradient that does such a beautiful job of outlining the man on the left with the color contrast, and the man on the right with value contrast and all the lines leading to his head. You created a stunning environment for ...
