Re: Work boots

"How much are those boots in the window"? Cool version Duck, this reminds me of a store front window advertisement or a magazine add. Excellent, I like it very much and I'm sure you will be able to possibly use it later or something similar. Hopefully someone sees this and says, "this is the guy to...

yep - that's what I meant - a worn out pair full of history.
Hmmm... Time to look for a really crusty, worn out pair of work boots :D

Re: Last Sunset on Swim-Beach

[...] I got these shots consumed with guilt because everyone else was cleaning the cottage and I sneaked out when I saw what was developing in the sky. Sneaky, sneaky. I didn't even realize you snuck off. It's a great shot so I'll forgive you. :D I'm currently sifting through my images deciding on ...

[...] It is not from lack of knowledge of what the rules are, it is from my insistence on doing things the wrong way by choice.
And I'm okay with that. It's what makes you who you are. Your images speak for themselves and there's no denying you have made some really awesome images. :thumbup:

Re: Subdued Sunset

Thanks and good point. I wanted the tombstones to show up but that light above them is a little TOO light. I used to struggle with this all the time, wanting to have everything within the image to have the same weight of importance. I have since learned that's not the way others look at our images....

Re: Subdued Sunset

Very pleasing composition. I'm actually liking the subdued colors of the sky. I would suggest you look at the three light spots below the horizon line as it's pulling my eyes down and out of the frame. A little burning will help coax the eye back into the frame. :thumbup: Otherwise, it's a really gr...

Re: 'Waitin' on Forrest Gump' (Composite)

Holy cow, I'm loving the second version. I think you lost too much of the bench but I'm really digging the look of this one!

Re: A lovely Bug

Finding the right field of focus on something this small is very tricky indeed. Like others, I think you found a nice compromise between showing the right amount of detail and creating an artistic presentation. As anyone who has done macro work would understand, a slight breath forward or back durin...

Re: Work boots

Love it as a product type of shot - but I would really like to see you get an atmospheric shot of the boots that these new boots are replacing!!! I'm not fully understanding the comment. Do you mean like a used pair on a job site? If so, there is the problem of obtainability. I only had access to n...

Re: decks have straight lines

Fantastic. I even like the "not straight" lines. It all works well to set the tone of the image.
