Re: Peacock Moon

Dave, Delightful and chortly. You'll each remember the other. Took me three glances to figure it out; clever title. Smooth and visible texture in the feathers is very well done; and the fuzz at the bottom looks like frozen methane. The peacock has spoken. Matt

Re: Impending Storm Series

I never tire of mountains and clouds in b&w. I see a symphony with an exploding crescendo in the right hand. Magic. Matt

Re: Perhaps a Storm Tonight

Bob, Mountains of the sky above mountains of the earth -- entrancing image, bewitching capture, ominous moment. All in one memorable image. Well done. Matt

Re: Hilary

Ernst, I am retired and take photos to stay out of my family's way. The young girl next door asked me to take some pictures for her yearbook. I shot around 100 in color on the beach here on Cape Cod, and a handful in b&w in their home. I thought a b&w was the best and a professional, to whom...

Re: Fort Gaines Part 2

Hi, Minnie, I'm still trying to get familiar and at ease with the pM system and to post a reply instead of a quickie. I like both 1 and 3 for the range of tones; they invite me to contemplate them a bit longer. (Odd for the corridor but perhaps not for the latirne.) I do find # 2 a touch somber and ...

Re: 'Leader of the Pack (Revised)

Dave, If I had taken this photo, my friends and family would have knelt and bowed. Magical what you did from 1 to 2. When I grow up, I want to be able to do 1/10 of this. I agree, however, that the stray hair on the right is a distraction. I prefer the skin tone in the first. The tilt of the head, t...

Re: Bethel Church

Minnie, This is my first post, so I may get it all coffluggied. In the first photo, the print on the pages is too muddy for me, but it may have been that way or it may be these aging eyes. Both the book and the page, I thought, could benefit from some highlighting or brightening -- not sure which or...

Re: "Signature" Photo

Do you have one, if so please share. Here is mine taken at Ruby Beach here on the Olympic Peninsula. It's 10 years old and my best selling personal image. Best to ya, Ernst Breath-taking. If I had taken this, I probably would never take another; Everest is best on the first visit. I will study your...
