Re: Family_Guy

I see the allure. I see the potential for something . It's just not quite there with this image. It's as if what caught your eye and prompted you to press the shutter were the yellow weeds in front, not the pinball machine through the window. Is this a location you can revisit? If yes, I think what ...

That is ever so cool. But what is it? do tell!
I'm not understanding your question, "but what is it?"
It's your lighthouse image... I just reworked it. Made it into a 3D isometric tile. Is this a trick question? (?)

Re: Happy and pleasant surprise

Thanks Duck. You were the one who called attention to "Snuggled " and articulated what I could not but may have intuited. That made me pause and rethink and try to pay more attention to what catches my eye without wondering what others would think about the shot. A great help. Thanks. Matt It's all...

Re: Bones on the beach

Minnie's critique is pretty good and, I have to admit, got a good chuckle about the bathroom photo idea. You got lucky on this one. More often than not, any time I come across a dead fish it is far more gruesome than this.

Re: Morning walk to the oyster beds

Thank you, Matt, I definitely learned something new today. Beautiful picture story. I am surprised the town doesn't enforce abandoned plots to be dismantled. That said though, that last image is pretty cool. Good to see you out and about and feeling better.

Re: Oyster graveyard

I don't know, maybe it's because I'm a New Englander but I think oyster shell are beautiful.

All these images seem to make a comment of their own. The first two being the strongest.

An enterprising person armed with a hot glue gun and some googly eyes could have a lot of fun there. :lol:

Re: Cathedral

I feel your pain. I love hiking through the woods in my area and whenever I take my camera I am always dissatisfied because none of the images live to the reality. Occasionally I get a passable of but nothing I would consider worthy. The magic formula for getting beautiful forest images eludes me, u...
