Re: Just a Country Road

Beautiful rendition of a difficult subject. To me it does not seem lonely, but peacefully inviting - a quiet place to wander. Adding people, would shatter that feeling. But then again, perhaps a I'm a little quirky, because I will sometimes wait a long time for folks to clear out of a scene I want t...

Re: Prop collecting is a sickness

I, too, can relate. While I don't collect props, I do collect stuff, so I can understand the obsession with finding the best of a bunch. On many occasions, I have also gone through an entire display shelf to find the "best one". If it something I am going to display in my house, I want it ...

Re: To Flash or Not

Thanks, Duck! You are right, I just let the camera do its thing. My goal with the flash was to try to make the fountain more visible. I have edited the flash version to somewhat restore that "awesome blue sky", removed some of the red cast of the building, and done a little dodging and bur...

To Flash or Not

Two handheld shots of Pasadena City Hall at night from the courtyard in the back. I almost never use a flash when taking a shot like this because it really isn't powerful enough to do much, but my hope had been to throw a little more light on the fountain. What surprised me was the differences in co...

Re: Split Rock Lighthouse

Nice documentary of the lighthouse. I'm surprised that the lighthouse needed three caretakers. Does that equate to three keepers or did the caretakers have other duties.

Re: Another Morning in the Swamp

What I especially like about this is the diagonal balance through the image separating the browns and the greens, a great compositional touch. If I did any cropping at all, it would be to take a little off the bottom. Because the immediate foreground turns dark, it distracts and thereby slows my ent...

Re: Flying With Prize

Looks like another dam bird and a d..n fine one at that! Seriously, its a real beauty (and catch). I really like the roiling water.

Re: Eat Cake

Thanks for sharing these amazing cakes. Hard to believe they are eatable. Equally hard imagining being the one to start their destruction by making the first cut.
