Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion - JMW Turner's "Snowstorm" - Let's Talk About Water and Light

I've no ships at sea to share, but the astounding power of water when it's at its wildest can be witnessed even far from the sea. The thundering and dangerous power of water is a huge component of what draws me back to the dam again and again, to photograph my delicate feathered "sailors" steadfast...

Re: Letchworth Village in Thiells, New York

Thanks, Charles. I appreciate you coming by to look. I agree, the back story to this place is horrific. It's a shame these residents (kids mostly from what I garther) had to be subjected to this form of experimentation. It amazes me how we can make such great strides in mechanical and technical deve...

It definitely looks like a recessed light of some type.
Maybe one of those placed at intervals on a set of stairs?

An architectural light used to shine up on a wall perhaps.
Other than that, I'm running out of ideas.

Re: Tounge

I like the image. I find that goofy, quirky, non-standard poses work really well for these types of image manipulations. The only thing I see is that light streak on the left cheek (kid's left, not the viewer's left) looks like a runny nose gone haywire. An easy fix with the heal brush. :-D

I'll venture a guess...

A waterproof light for a swimming pool?

Re: Almost_Grinning2

I like. The character shows through all the manipulation quite clearly. Something that needs to be watched when doing these types of sketch and drawing actions.

Re: Letchworth Village in Thiells, New York

Love the b&w. Do you convert in PS? Do you use Silver Effex? Matt I just reinstalled the NIK collection so these were done in SEP2. To be honest though, I don't see anything in SEP2 that I can't do in Lightroom and Photoshop so I really don't see the hy[e over Silver Effects Pro. Unless, of course,...
