Re: Fish On The Wing

I took up your challenge and gave it a try at post processing this image... Very nice edit, Duck. This is so interesting to me because I'm at this place with these birds so often, in all kinds of weather and light, and other conditions. This particular day was very challenging in terms of shooting ...

Re: Backlit Swamplet

Thanks Minnie, and what a shame about the removal of the brush! Yes, a terrible shame what can be done in the name of "improvement". Credit for the term Plant Nazi's goes to my late friend "Dr. Dirt" Goldsberry, who devoted his life to the fight against that kind of "improv...

Re: Concentric

An outdoor stage in a small town with folks who enjoy a touch of artfulness. I became entranced with the lines as they diverged into the background. The subject is super fascinating and I would be forced to try to photograph it. I am not sure this is its most effective angle, and it would benefit f...

Re: Flight

I posted this bird a couple of days ago, this shot was taken seconds after the first, but I went down a different road processing. All comments and edits are welcome. So simple yet so beautiful, this is a true testament to your artist's eye! This one is a wall hanger! S- Thank you so much. A small ...

The cinematic look works. Great portrait of Spidey with rich detail. (Your attention to detail is fun to study and vastly exceeds mine).

Re: Stopping on my way home this morning from shopping

Glad I had my camera. The clouds were moving very fast. A few seconds before I had parked and got out my camera, the distant hills on the right in the bottom photo were aflame; that was what caught my eye. Then the curtain dropped fast. This was good enough. C&C welcome. MattMarriottsville Rd P...

Re: The Ethics of Landscape Photography - Article for Discussion

... I often clone out parts [...] Yet, I felt a little odd when I picked up a pretty leaf and set it on a piece of wood to photograph. I think I'm just kinda nutty, and like the fun of finding things at my photo sites rather than setting them up. [...] Aha! So it's not an issue of ethics but rather...

Re: Backlit Swamplet

Such a lovely scene Minnie !!! Color tone looks natural to me and the backlighting is just awesome. Wondering though, since it's a drainage ditch, is it actually as beautiful being there verses your image? Sometimes pictures can lie to us. I remember being in places that were not so pleasant and th...

Re: Backlit Swamplet

This one definitely looks natural, a beauty. Can you post the middle of the 3 exposures for comparison? Thanks much! Thanks Linda. Here's the middle of the group, though I haven't tried to do more than basic adjustment to make it what the jpeg would have been. The mist in the background had "f...
