On approach

Postby LindaShorey » Wed May 17, 2017 12:54 pm

One of a dozen or so shots I took of a crop dusting plane. I thought the profile was so cute, I took it to "playful" pp and added some clouds besides.

Boy! That's one of those the-more-I-look-the-better-I-like shots. (OK)

The plane really does have a cartoon quality to it. Very cute, indeed!

I like this one a lot Linda, cool shot with just enough elements to make it interesting but not too many to clutter things. The contrast between the cools and warms is also nice, but the best part is the compositional lines that have the plane's flight path intersecting with the utility line at the edge of the frame, like an arrow moving left to right. I'm figuring the clouds are texture-based, good job of blending and incorporating.

Thank you all so much! I'm very grateful you found interest. One of those that I've been coming back to for awhile and since I smiled each time I looked at it, I decided to see if I could spread the fun :) MInnie, the sky is real clouds! The first of starting to compile my own library of textures (and/or sky replacements). Shot from my balcony one storming evening.

Those are great clouds! They really worked in your picture. Building a library of clouds is an excellent idea. I just posted something to which I added clouds from my library. :| I've been collecting clouds since school when we had our "pasteup" assignment.

Neat-o! And thanks again, Chuck. It's fun to keep general "textures" in mind when out shooting too. I photographed some cheat grass yesterday, which is very nasty stuff in that it can work its way into the paws of dog's feet. I just read it's not native. Wow, it's ALL over the hills of central Washington. Anywho, I hope to use that photo as a background texture at some point, though I might need to blur it a bit :)

The cheat grass is invasive but I have heard that it can be harvested for ethanol, which suggests to me that maybe we don't have to distill corn into fuel. (Just sayin'...)

This is a funny image I'm sure I wouldn't have taken and would have regretted it now that I see what you've done with it. We should have an 'almost boring contest' where we see who can take what would be assumed as a boring image and post our vision of how to make it better. Wait, did I say that out loud? I'm not calling your image boring...laf! I can't get over how I wouldn't have shot this, but the more I look the more I like it! Neat-O and more please! S-
