Re: Barn and Tree

Put me down for Dead-Eye too. The building seems more ominous/lonely in that version. I really like the monochrome too, it would be my favorite. Somehow the hops apparatus is a stronger part of the composition in monochrome (the shadows and clouds give that one another assist because of all those ma...

Re: foggy dusk

I like #2 a lot, the reddish/orangish one with a textured look in the background. That warmth seems to make the hawk really come alive. A wonderfully evocative image. And a good example of a non-centered, non-Rule of Thirds image.

Re: A cry for spring!!!

Hi All With this image I beseech all to pray for spring, oh I am cold. RBorud I am with you though my winters can't compare with yours! For us, 3 weeks of below freezing temperatures is ghastly, and we are due ice falling from the sky tomorrow. Yes, I'd welcome this beautiful purple flower with all...

Re: No Privacy

Voyeurism of a different kind....... First let me say welcome back! I can see that you were a regular participant during the first incarnation of pM, and all of us here now (some old, some new) would be so happy to have you back in the village. That is a wonderfully imaginative portrait. I'm not su...

Fun series! Though I've seen photos of GBH's with super-sized catches, I've never personally seen anything bigger than a bullfrog :)
I've seen them fight big fish before, but this was a jubilee day for landing big ones, and they got carried away with themselves.

Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head

My friends the dam birds sometimes visit the All You Can Eat Buffet and overfill their plates. When that happens they sometimes have to let one get away. They will try a lot of things first - spearing it, stomping on it, banging it on the rocks, tossing it up and trying to swallow it, but sometimes ...

Re: Minnie's 52

Jan 15- Self Portrait. Ugh. Well, this is an experiment I don't think I'll do much more of, but I did want to do something kind of original, so I used the camera to take a picture of me taking a picture of myself with cell phone.. or something like that. It was the only way I could figure to get a ...
