Thanks Dave. I can't imagine how anyone could do such huge portraits.

Re: 'Sweet Hitchhiker' (composite)

Wonderful concept, Dave, I love it. Rockwellian is fine with me. I see some areas for selection improvement around the woman - the part against the sky has a bit of brownish halo, and the legs have a residual from the original photo I think around the selection edge. The man doesn’t seem to have the...

Re: Squinting

all comment welcome..especially comment for improvement.....couldn't decide on cloning out background person Gee this is a good one Frank! So much character and expression! Perfect angle too, IMHO, with great detail dropping off to just the right degree of blur. The color is terrific, don’t bother ...

Re: Smoothing Water After The Fact

Minnie, I like the final result the most except for the hat/head of the rower. On a quick glance, it looked like he had lost it; there is greater contrast in the original between hat and water.. Can it be brought up somehow? Just my opinion. You have the keenest eye for what surrounds you. Surprise...

Re: To B&W or not to B&W, that is the question

I had my go at them both. Both are valid interpretations of a lovely scene, expressed in different ways. For the color, my main goal was to adjust the color so the water didn't look purple. I know this can be a function of monitors, but I wanted to de-purple it first. My version of the b&w is not m...

Re: August Fingerwork #7 - Gallinule

yepper, what Frank said. However... perhaps... Words grab and suck the eye right in, so the image feels top heavy. maybe softer words, or move them to the bottom to ground them. My thoughts as well. I think it's overall really good, but I immediately thought, "Ghost the type;" reduce its opacity. M...

A nice image minniev....maybe a bit more detail from the closest hillside
Thank ya, Frank. I’ll look to see if there’s some there (lot of distance, and heavy crop may have robbed me of detail).
