Re: 'Weeping Guitarist'

Here's my version and as you can see, it has far less impact and interest than yours. I didn't see the potential the way you did. Your version is an excellent one Minnie. I like very much the point of view and the color tone. I usually struggle with the microphone in the face. Here you have managed...

Re: 'Weeping Guitarist'

this is awesome - my critique would be that the color in the guitar steels too much from the lady. I too would love a blow-by-blow description of how you edit your images! Thanks Piet, I appreciate your thoughts and comments. I agree, the guitar does take away from her. In some sort of sense I want...

Re: 'Weeping Guitarist'

On the streets of New Orleans I couldn't pass by this young lady without capturing a few shots. I took a few, walked away only to return for more. She had such a lovely voice and put some emotional expression into her street performance. After viewing some, but not all of the images I took, I decid...

Re: For Car Lovers

If you got one, please feel free to add it. I wished I’d been closer to the grinning skull in the doorway, but I’d have missed the mildly interesting passerby. Oh, the challenges of Street! I got a front angle POV that I tried some vintage grunge style. While taking the ones that I wasn't all that ...

Re: Sometimes I Miss When I Was Good

As we rounded the corner near this group, I heard the girl on the right say to her companion, "Sometimes I miss when I was good". His answer, "But we're bad now." And her wistful, "yeah". All suggestions and feedback appreciated. I did not hear the quote, but do remember you asking me if I had. Thi...

Re: For Car Lovers

We determined this was a 1963 Pontiac Grand Prix. A rare site I do believe and I agree, older cars are fun to edit if you're into grunge. I don't think we ever saw the owner.
