Re: Collector of Fine Art BW Images

Here is another image I missed getting back in the early 80's. One of Edward Curtis's more famous image. There was a classified ad in the Oregonian and I didn't get to the phone fast enough. ;-( Would love having an Edward Curtis image. Sorry you missed it! He is a fascinating figure in photographi...

Re: Sunset at Shelton Lakes

It's a peaceful well composed scene that reminds us beauty can be found in our ordinary surroundings, we don't have to travel to exotic locations to have fun with this. Just yesterday I had a request for a similar image of our local reservoir for a conservation brochure. You never know where your ne...

A neon butterfly! It's a very cool interpretation, almost looks like it's made of stained glass.

thanks Piet. Actually the underbelly of the dam has struck me as Egyptian before, with the birds and geometric blocks of stone and strange "stairs" where no humans can go.

Thanks for an interesting idea. I'd be very happy for you to show me where? top and bottom or just one of them?

I've not tried any pano crops for the dam birds but you have got me thinking...

Re: The Dam Birds of August

The birds left for a while, but showed back up for a while yesterday in the early morning haze, shooting into the sun with all of that light coming through the grates in the top of the dam. It is not an easy scene to compose from with these conditions, and I haven't tried to do much with it in post...

Re: The Flutterby

This is an accidental capture while visiting Solstice Canyon. It needs work, but that's why I'm posting it here. S- This can't be called an accident, it's beautiful. The colors are vibrant and the details are exquisite. Nice angle showing all of one wing (butterflies are not notoriously cooperative...

Re: Intergenerational Adventuring

Here's where I ended up. It is a bit of a compromise. The little guy in the red shirt loved it. ... I miss all that green but think you did an amazing job bringing it together. This really brings the subjects in focus and I love it! S- Thank you. I debated whether to crop top or bottom, but based o...
