Re: Panorama de Tétons Grandes avec itty-bitty Nikon L12, 2007

Nice pano retrieved from the past! I enjoy seeing what I can make of old photos, too. I’ve found that if I happened to expose them correctly and the light was decent, I have pretty good luck. Those little sensors did the job. But if I missed exposure or if the light was to dim or too harsh, I had ar...

Re: First sunshine of 2018!

These are all quite beautiful, each in its own way, yet they work as a set, too. I’d be hard put to choose a favorite since I like them all so much. Great compositions, subjects, exposure, color treatment. Whether you added that sheep is immaterial to me. As for the tech stuff - I like the sharper v...

Re: Frosted Thoughts

Hi All Here is a new industrial image. This was done on another of those -15 below mornings that we have in Minn. this time of the year. But up here most photographers know these temps though agonizing make for great factory scenes. This on being of many 3M plants in the area. (Maybe the scotch tap...

Re: Simply Ice

I think Chuck's onto something. I bet the impact would be much greater with a print, maybe metal? This is a bit chaotic for my comfort level, but I can imagine becoming immersed in the moment when shooting. Fascinating artist, that Mother Nature. Yep, it’s processed to emulate metal. I am tempted t...

Re: Simply Ice

Minnie, You know my preference in b&w; the darker, the better. These look washed out to me; I would prefer more black and a tad more contrast. Aging eyes here, you understand. Matt I understand Matt, but I kept this one bright on purpose, shooting for a freshly-polished-silver look. I knew it would...

Re: Simply Ice

Nothing to critique so far as I am concerned. I wouldn't mind have a physical print in my hands just so I could turn it through 360 and study it. The chaos is fascinating and gives us an insight into why no two snowflakes are ever exactly the same (although that's now disputed but angels dancing). ...

Fantastic composition and subtle use of the light and icy conditions. You brought order to the cypress trees! I like this very much, Minnie.
Thanks Linda. Order is scaace in the swamp. It is a messy place that has read not one book on photographic composition and need for simplification.

Re: River of Ice

The little stream that feeds the swamp froze over. All suggestions and comments appreciated. Subtle, clever lady. Really love how the skinny tree, top middle left, echoes the curve of the stream. Neat. Ice tones are perfect. Composition just right. Hope you stayed dry. You want ice? Wait till I get...

I really like how it winds and weaves through the trees - and I like the cool blue color that contrasts with the warm colors in the leaves and trees.
Thanks Piet, those were the very characteristics that drew me into this scene.
