Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion: Jan. 2018 - Galen Rowell's Split Rock and Cloud

I think Linda nailed it: Rowell's astonishing picture looks abstract but it's not. It looks simplistic but it's so not. I on the other hand would would have it on my wall and look at it often. I genuinely love the picture, the more so because of its backstory. When first scrolling down into it I th...

Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion: Jan. 2018 - Galen Rowell's Split Rock and Cloud

Here is a shot that was taken in response to Galen Rowell though not the Split Rock image, but instead it was taken on Buttermilk Rd near Bishop CA, a location near his home where he took several of his best known images. I had seen his photos from Buttermilk road at his Mountain Light gallery the d...

Re: Heron

Here is one of those images where sharpness is not what is sought or valued. The softness of the grayish tones, the gliding form, the shimmery grasses just beneath him. This is a beautiful sense of place image that makes me feel the vast solitude of wetlands. Some of my dam birds are like that - inc...

Minnie's 52

I am using the spinner to help drive the image I post in this thread every week. This week I got "Natural Framing" and of course went to the swamp and the dam. The swamp proved more useful. However, it's 12 degrees here today, and zero with the wind chill factor. Coldest it's been in a century, they...

Re: Using Textures To Enhance Photos - Learn & Share - Post Yours!

Yay! Success at last! Word of warning though: they’re not presets. They are image files mostly in png format. They are to be overlaid on a photoshop image as a layer and worked with to get effects. They won’t give you a finished image, unlike a preset. Instead they will make you crazy until you get ...

Is this the same one we saw the closer-up shot of earlier? It's a nicely captured architectural window into the past, with all that detail and texture. Nice management of the tonalities.
