My first in PPG!
Mar 14, 2012

These are my first two attempts and both are in. I'm really pleased by that!

Both were taken from my recent trip to Hawaii. Such a photogenic place...

Both are AMAZING viewed small. The trees looked a tad soft though when seen in larger sizes

Great shots

Love the "3d" effect that the 2nd photo conveys.

Lovely photos. May I ask what might be a dumb question, Could you tell me what PPG stands for?
I did a quick google search and came up with;

A large company in the U.S.
A Tank proving ground in Russia.
And the term 'Pacific Proving Gound'

None of which seem to fit in with a photography forum lol.

Thanks in advance,

Congratulations,

The first of many I'm sure. Great light and color. I like the atmosphere in the second one. Well done.

P.S. Would you mind posting a link so that we can follow your progress?

A little, but I think it would print well. It was also a bit windy that day (which creates an amazing sound in a bamboo forest), so maybe motion is in play?

I have both my website: http://grumpyjohns.com as well as my Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/photos/spqr_ca/ with more photos from Hawaii. I didn't want flood PPG.

Thanks! I see you already got the answer. PPG has some real nice work there, it's easy to get lost browsing some of the spectacular work.
