Minnie, Went back and fiddled; surprisingly, this pleases me more even though it leans toward the light. But, as I mentioned to Frank, it's still not what I see in my mind, but I am having difficulty reading my mind. Matt
Want to play a game? Don't think, just answer with the first thing that comes into your mind. What do you want to say(the story)? S-
Thought this had been from Minnie so I replied to her. Apologies. See that reply please. Your thoughts? Matt

Minnie, Had to think because the first thing that came to mind was not words but the emotional reaction I had when I first walked out of the garage and saw the scene. Took me a while to formulate that feeling: buffering, protecting, shielding. The big strong straight grass is standing tall behind the tiny cluster of petite daisies, some of which have even snuggled among the stalks. What does that mean for the treatment of the photo? How do I emphasize those qualities? Stronger tones on the grass, lighter on the flowers? Vice/versa? Neither the grass nor the flowers dominate in my mind; it's the relationship that caught my eye. So, now what? How do I convey that, my guru? Thanks for prompting this. Matt
Wow, that was visceral and I love it! Now take that and make your image show it as well! Brightness, Contrast, Color, Saturation, you have all the paints you need, now create that masterpiece, each and every one of them and tell the story you want it to be! S-

Wheel gave me Out Of Focus. This was a personal project, but I’ll share it anyway since I’m among friends. The blur version is shown alongside the unblurred version of the same scene. Some of you know that I have much-younger half siblings, as my father had several wives and with the last one had twins when he was in his 70s. They are now 28. The boy has Down’s syndrome and the girl is perfectly fine, but you can imagine the dilemma the parents faced 28 1/2 years ago. My sister got married in Denver last weekend, which is what brought me to Colorado. Her brother walked her down the aisle. This picture of them together as she got dressed I thought was touching, and the blur version tells a different story of what might (not) have been. Life can be complicated.

A very touching story Minnie and your first image fills in any blanks there may be. Your second photo does fulfill the weekly requirements, but I'll have to agree with Frank ... too out of focus. Then again, it does give you an A+ with the wheel.
