the layers in the landscape work perfectly with her.
Thanks Piet. I had to tug on her a good bit with liquify and puppet warp to make it happen.

This week the theme is minimalism - not my strong suit as you know.

I shot one in Nashville and saved it, but I always feel compelled to shoot something in the week of the assignment, too. So while at the country house last week, unable to do much because it poured rain every single day, I shot this leaf on my muddy porch.

Nashville is famous for its cranes, and they are proud that there's always a bunch up there, it symbolized their rapidly growing city. There was a great fear during the tornado that the cranes would come down, and they would have wreaked a lot of havoc if they had. But the folks that operate them were able to secure them in time. They are built to "give" rather than snap, which helped protect them.

Both nicely done minniev....were I to suggest anything it would be to turn off the horizon lights in the crane image and just a bit of distraction clean up in the leaf image...however both are fine as is.

Good ideas on both, Frank, I am guilty of being a little too messy. I did remove two of the most distracting horizon lights and I cleaned up the worst of the porch, but cleaning the porch up for real would be more trouble than it's worth in both the photo and in real life. The Nashville scene I shall try! It's kinda neat and my son may want it.

Hi, Min,
I really like the “leaf in isolation” image!
Great eye for that one!
I’m going out right now in quest of leaves!
Our cottonwoods are screaming “Early Autumn!!!!”

But....another sunset’s another sunset...
(Sorry ....)

Glad ya like my leaf. I was sitting on the porch swing when it blew in and landed, so I shot it on the spot.

Cottonwoods are lovely in fall.

I miss traveling....

Me, creatively in an image. Just got terribly silly here. This is me and my husband.

This week's theme: Shadows

I did a couple, one that I took in the single hour of sunshine we had all week and murdered in Procreate, my front hall with shadows sprouting from the ancient screen door. Screen doors were very decorative in the early 1900s.

Then I fired up Icolorama and tried a bit a everything on an image I shot at the Impressionists exhibit a few weeks ago, sculpture by Maillol.

Hi, Min,
Devotee of straight photography as I am, my enthusiasm is totally absorbed by your image #1
It is absolutely engrossing and evocative of many memories of delightful such scenes accumulated during my lifetime!
Stay well and safe!
Dave no
I’m so glad you posted it!

I love your Zeke wants inside shadow story. Good lord, we watched horror movies all weekend (so I am starting to see things in the shadows). Is that a giant mouse in the doorway to the left?
