Re: Journey to Monhegan - ongoing image thread

This one may not be very artistic but I hope you can see the possibilities of all the compositions you can make our of the lobster rope coils that are EVERYWHERE. IN fact, I'd love to see what someone makes of this SOOC image with cropping and processing.

Another beauty in this sequence, Frank. This is even better. In fact, I think it's perfect. Your use of light, and how you edited to bring the light out, is just gorgeous. Wonderful image.

Surely you will print this one...

Re: 'Simba & Nala' (Composite)

This is a composite of a male lion (Simba) and a female lioness (Nala). Both were in the same exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo taken (6/3/19) my first and only visit this year.

Another - the forests are so beautiful on the island. They have been preserved by an irrevocable trust set up by Thomas Edison's son.

There are endless carrots. Though the island is small, you never run out of options. Then there's the people. Endless fascination. This is one of Sherm Stanley's daughters. He is the harbormaster, as his father/grandfather/greatgrandfather before him, back to the 1700s or something like that.

Hope he does his work (the snake I mean, the pilot surely will). Not a good enough shot to warrant asking for crit...
