Today was an indoor day so I got creative and tried something I've been wanting to do but hadn't had the courage to. S-

I don’t dislike it, but it’s a little confusing because I can’t tell what it is. Knowing it’s a shell helps but now I want it to have a hint of shadow. It does have a certain spare elegance to it. I think the vast pink space is more than my eye can consume. I’d be adding textures and giving it some depth. It might not be as elegant that way tho. An interesting offering that makes me think!

The dreaded Pink... LAF You're right though about a shadow and if I was deft enough maybe that of a rose!

This is harder than it looks, but now I have something to think about. Thank you! S-

I've been sick the past few days, and today was the worst, but I wanted to post something to keep on track. I was too tired to get the tripod out but not sure I was steady enough without. Even now I think the greens are on the ROT. (ERRR)

I'm up and moving but not enough energy to visit the bison so I'm posting my next project. S-

Perhaps they're a tad soft but for a sick fella to think this up and do it, I'm impressed. The colors are gorgeous, the composition is magazine worthy. Makes me feel good to look at them.

Strawberries - a good thing you have that green-topped one in the center; otherwise I'd argue that your subject is in the Thirds spot upper right: the largest strawberry with cap and the bright spot that draws my eye there :)

Taking a photo a day for thirty days will be okay, but processing them could take some time.

This is a photo I previsualized but blew the settings in camera so I had to work it in post. S-

Absolutely love the bison image Steve !!! I see the title to possibly be 'Cheek to Cheek'

I may have to jump onboard the 30 day trial.

Thank you so much! It's amazing how easy it is to hit the ROT and hard not to. I'm still working on it! S-
