I appreciate the votes of confidence, but as Dave mentions, I too learn from everyone here. That's why I particularly enjoy this site more than any other, past, present and future.

We all have our own experiences that help inform the image making process. I look to others where my knowledge and experience lacks and feel all the richer for it. That's why I love conversations about what the artist was thinking when the shutter was clicked or the steps taken in post processing. There are always little nuggets of knowledge to be mined.



I'm glad you see it that way as well, Duck. I'm a firm believer that no one knows everything and we all learn something from others, even if it's just character !!!

I have no clue as to what the gossip was about other than in one photo they seemed to be inspecting a flaw, scratch or maybe just a smudge on the grill of the old Mack firetruck. Comments and suggestions welcomed.

I'd like to see the first with the same 'tint' as the second, but love both and think you have an eye for Street! Well done! S-

Steve, I appreciate your opinion of what is appealing to you, and I sometimes find it difficult to choose various tones. I go back and forth with this and that when sometimes I just say, "Oh, the hell with it". I do mix tones up, post to get an idea what most approve of to their liking, only to see if it differs from my own thoughts. Sometimes I agree and sometimes I don't, because since everyone is different there will always be opinions different from mine. Although, there have been times I have been persuaded and learned from it. One example is, for such a long time I didn't care for B&W at all, but happened to be persuaded through the works of others and finally saw the beauty in it. Sorry to ramble on, but I hope I made some sense, but again, thank you as I strongly feel we learn from each other even if its just an opinion and probably the one that mattered the most.
