It saddens me to forward the news that our good friend and fellow photographer, Matt Quinn, has passed.
As some of you may know, he had been battling cancer for a while and was on his way to recovery.
Please take a moment to remember him in your prayers.

AspenArt

Post by minniev » Wed Oct 31, 2018 8:45 pm

I always try to get the iconic photos of aspen that I see others get, but I don't find the right shapes and forms and light to pull it all together. For this grouping I did an artistic rendering. I have one aspen image I like from several years ago and will look for it and add it if I can find it. Meanwhile, feedback on this concoction is appreciated.

absolutely a nice card. I like the hatching of it, the trees go up and down, the shadows and colors go sideways.

Piet, I don't like the tomato color in the weeds; my eyes, feeble as they are, go right there. And then I puzzle over what they are doing there. The trees I like very much. Matt

Ooops, that reply should have been to Minnie not Piet. But I do have an excuse that I will wear out I am sure. Matt

I love it when people comment and it's actually what I tried to do! Thanks Piet.
