Thanks Steve. You have brought to life the best place for learning and exchanging tips and critiques.

In your honor, I took this photo the other night not of the Strawberry Moon but of its light.

Did you fall and hit your head? I don't know what happened but you've found your art!

Wonderful, absolutely wonderful! Print that! S-

While mike prefers the first, I am rather drawn to the second for it's distilled composition and hints of a majestic mountainscape as seen from across a vast plains. What appeals to me most are the repeating horizontal lines of varying textures and tones. The familiarity of the subject also draws me in. While it is your bed it can easily be my bed. In other words, you successfully distilled the subject to it's core nature, one that everyone can connect to. I really like this one. Well done.

Thanks Steve. If I fell, I don't remember. Matt

Both super! A low key and a high key, both studies in the single most important thing in photography: seeing light. Sure, it's all about the light, but all the camera does is record it. First ya gotta perceive it. Very, very well done! :thumbup: :yay:

Thanks Chuck. Now that I am somehow alert to seeing light, I need to be sure to get it right in camera. Practice, etc. Matt
