Re: The Secrets of Flowers

As everyone knows, I'm prone to keep everything in the frame even when I shouldn't. I agree he may not be clear enough and if he were they wouldn't be, so everything is a bit compromised. I don't think it's a spider, I've just called them OtherBugs. I've seen what I think is the same ones on these ...

Van came to visit the studio the other day so I can continue my baseball series.
I love your baseball shots, having been a baseball mom for 30 years and now in my third year of baseball grandmothering. I like the "dirty kids" in their unis, with your great vintage-looking treatment.

Re: Wee beastie

That's a fine one, Matt, and I missed it the first time round. The colors are scrumptious and the delicate beastie is nicely hidden within the beautiful bloom. Well spotted and taken.

Re: Meritime Festival

These are all wonderful, all inspiring, all Ernst. I confess a special attachments to the boats large and small, but these are all just excellent. Thank you for sharing them. Seeing art like this may help nudge me out of my photographic drought.

Re: A Door Knob

an interesting image minniev...while I'm no door knob expert I think I would like to see more depth in the knob itself, for me it seems a touch washed out maybe because of the whitish glare.. Piet got more detail in his edit. In mine, I deliberately amped up the whites to make the thing glow, sacri...

Re: A Door Knob

such a beautiful subject, I wanted it to be spooky and elegant too. Min.jpg I like the POV you captured it with, another alternative is to give it long shadows and work the shadow of the knob on the doorway into the composition. Great alternative, thank you! I'll experiment with the shadow idea nex...

A Door Knob

I know this may be a bust but I'm having fun shooting detail stuff in and out of my old house. Maybe if I do it enough I'll get better at it. Any suggestions for door knob photography appreciated. I shot some angled and profiled, but liked the front shot the best. (I did warn you all about this in m...

Re: Any suggestions?

I took this photo hoping to imitate a Chinese scene with the slanting tree against and blank sky. Don't know if it's possible. Any and all suggestions welcome including fuddegedabodit. Thanks. Matt Piet has given you precisely the crop I'd have suggested, though I would have gone somewhere entirely...
