Re: 'Say a Little Prayer'

Oh wow, what a series! I'm hoping to go to the rodeo next week but I don't fool myself I'll get anything this interesting. The last time I tried, they were all way too dark or too grainy from high ISO to do anything with. But I shall try, of course!! That last one is pretty amazing. Glad he walked ...

Re: Pink Taxi

Havana is full of colors and 1950's American made automobiles. Lovely capture Minnie. This appears to be maybe a 1953 Buick? During the early 70's, we had a port of call to Istanbul,Turkey and most cars were of the same shown here, but never a pink one that I can recall. I love those 1950 style auto...

Re: White Bird Melee

I'll have to agree, not knowing where or what to do with the two images would be a challenge, but I do believe Frank has given an example, to not give up !!!

Captured in Cody, Wyoming 2017, my first ever rodeo.

Just another dam bird shot I never worked on.

Wonder about cropping down to the top of the diagonal? Any other suggestions are appreciated too.

Your dam birds are just that ... damn good !!! No suggestions from me on this. You've got this on your own Minnie.

Re: Experimentations

I like the effect very much on both the horse and on the fence post - I think thought that it isn't working with this particular composition. Perhaps if there was no fence, or if the fence was behind the horse. Also there is something about the blur in the background that makes my eyes vibrate and ...

Re: Experimentations

I aplaude experimentation Dave..I like the horse treatment but the motion blur is a bit strong for me and just overpowers any attempts I have to view the horse.... Thanks Frank !!! Absolutely .... a little on the strong side. Maybe I should have waited 24 hours to post. That way it would give me en...

Re: Experimentations

Glad to see your interesting experiments with creative blur again! Winter is a good season for practice. I love your horse, the soft treatment and textures give him some vintage magic, and the blur takes it even further into fantasy. Where his front leg appears between the blurred fenceposts is a l...

Re: Loading the Ark: Montego Bay

Cool !!! Love the composition to this, but the animals? Not sure, maybe because they are hard for me to see and to identify. Still ... a fantastic image. Dave Welcome home Mr. Chinn, we've missed you! I did keep a base copy of the boat with all the trucks and cranes and trash containers and power l...

Experimentations

Not sure if this is the correct section for posting this one. This was an image I took approximately 2 1/2 years ago on my return trip from Maine. The location is Strasburg, Pa. Seems the horse may be posing for me. My experimentation is transforming photos into pencil drawings through this tutorial...
