Re: value study - blend if

This reminds me of a technique I sometimes use to analyze a composition. I wrote a tutorial on it here; "Three tone guide to composition"

Re: Matt

Wow, that was not the news I expected.

He was a truly great guy and will be sorely missed around here. I had been looking forward to getting together with him once he felt better.

Re: Matt

A much needed update. Thank you.

I had talked with him earlier about meeting up but in the end he just wanted rest and some alone time. I can sympathize. He knows we're here when he's ready.

Re: Avian Folly

Minnie, is there meaning to your selection of items and their placement in your composition? If not, do you understand the meaning of the items you selected? Typically a composition like this is to convey meaning through visual symbols. Each symbol representing something the author wants to convey a...
