Re: Photo Rorschach -- what is it?

I’m very impressed. I know fine old wood and yet never saw it.

As for yours... fax machine from the side?

Re: Soft Pencil Sketch action on a portrait

I had my camera out yesterday and took a shot of a war memorial statue in front of the Milford Town Hall. Here is a pencil sketch version and I am including the original image so you can see how I cleaned it up prior to the sketch action. Unitas Photography-Milford War Memorial.jpg Unitas Photograp...

Re: Cousins

I like the idea and effect but I'm with Duck on the placement Is this one photo or two? Even if it's just one you can take liberties with it, to get the left hand cousin a little off the same angle as the other, and possibly a little smaller. When I use these types of actions, I don't ever figure ou...

Re: Letchworth Village in Thiells, New York

Nice series of a building I would LOVE to photograph. The doors and windows, and the monochrome are my favorites, but they are all well done. I can't visually deal with the first, I don't process tilted wide angle so well, but really like the other two ultra wide angles. Fire hydrant is a cool idea....

Minnie, Frank,

Church is correct. But that was the easy part.

Re: Photo Rorschach -- what is it?

I'm stumped. The light spot upper left looks like part of a bench or chair, but it looks to have some sort of wooden rail that would kill a person's back unless that's the back of it.

I'll stay with the church theme since Duck has the kitchen covered, and claim a metal communion or baptismal vessel.

Re: Soccer

The second one is my pick. Easier to look at, it lets the boys take my undivided attention. The first one suffers from what I call Stray Whites, tiny spots so pale they distract, usually in shots in harsh sun that reflects off light colors and some textures. They aren’t really noise but some kind of...

Re: Monthly Masters' Discussion - JMW Turner's "Snowstorm" - Let's Talk About Water and Light

I love these surreal type images. Turner is without question my favorite artist - bar none. I am surprised that he is English, not Dutch. LOL. In this image you get sucked into the center. I think he had himself tied to the mast of a ship during a storm once. The fragmentation and tilting on the sa...
