Re: Fiddling around

Gotta like most everything about this one Bob, well composed and presented....if I had any suggestion at all it might be darken the bright background building ever so slightly, so slightly that it's not worth mentioning.....laughing. Took your suggestion Piet, although with mixed results. It turns ...

Re: Pachyderm

Bob, I like the shadow play and texture and absolutely see one of Hannibal's best here! But you ought to do some warping to make the skull fatter and perhaps thin the trunk. The bark looks like armor, I think this is very cool but you need to take it further and get the shapes dead on. It would be ...

Re: Chess in a Parisian park

Bob, I really like this one! Initially, it made me think of a Rockwell painting. I was totally drawn into the picture. I love the expression and body language of the gentleman in red as he contemplates his next move. To me, the background doesn't in any way detract. It provides context as well as f...

Re: Tibetan Spaniel Puppy - Golden Boy

Wonderful expression and pose, nicely captured and presented. If you didn't deliberately add grain, there might be a bit of noise involved that could use some clean-up, but if grain was your intent, so be it. The image is very sweet, and should delight an owner. I know a photographer in the city wh...

Tibetan Spaniel Puppy - Golden Boy

There is a Japanese legend about Kintaro, the Golden Boy. I saw this puppy at a Dog Show, but if he were mine, I'd probably give him that name. This has more to do about sharpening than anything else. I have lately taken to turning down the Clarity level so as to make fur look a lot more natural. I'...

Thank you Steve. This is probably the busiest image I have ever rendered in black and white, but it turned out as one of my favorites.

Thanks, Steve. I very rarely present views of animals from the back, but this one seemed to beg an exception to the rule.

Re: White on White

The second has an artistic feel, like pen and paper, and somehow reminds me of The Saturday Evening Post images. Also, be sure to ask Psjunkie about High-key and the amazing work posted here! Thank you for sharing! S- Thanks for your comments Steve. Psjunkie has already sent me his renditions of al...

Re: Chess in a Parisian park

Depending on the available angles it might be easy to shoot the two from a view that isolates them, from another side, or even while standing on a chair above them, but I have to say I like this, the overall feel, the surrounding people helping the story along. The moment you've captured was well t...
