Re: Speedster..

Hi mate, I love it, there is just enough shape and form left of the boat, that after a minute it appears out of the motion blur. Did it take many attempts?

Regards.

Stephen.

Re: Evil?

Hi mate, he does look like he is thinking along those lines, or he remembers that bone you took of him.

If that was the case, pure evil.

Regards.

Re: Electra

Hi mate, a boys own photo, love all the metal work and the polished parts as well. An interesting choice itwith the framing makes much more than an aircraft photo.

Regards.

Re: Rudderless: 20th Century love affair

Hi mate, nice image and a well chosen verse to match. I like the left of centre framing, with less space in front of the car suggesting  that its best days are behind it.

Regards.

Wow Daniel, Evil it is and a very likeable shot, but tell me why not a portrait format whit his legs with the picture and giving the head a bit more shadow adjustment so the white of her left eye got more visible as that will strenghen his attitude. Love it.

Hey Lou

That is what I got in terms of format, it is a frozen moment in a sequence of him moving fairly quickly towards me (which is surprisingly difficult to see by looking at the photo). That is why it is in that format as there was no time to compose differently at this time and I know I cut the legs slightly which is a bit of a shame but animals move and does not follow the same logic as we do at all times.... I was also thinking of lightening the shadows slightly but I kind of liked how that shadow adding to this feel of evil.

This was the end of said sequence:

Saying hello from SF

Hi guys,
Just saying hello from SF and I will be back in Belgium next week (probably not in time though for the Wed c&c.
I'll look through your work after my return, but not now: c&c based on Iphone viewing is not really ideal.

Colours can be lightened or darkened in LR in b&w mode by use of the colour sliders, both luminence and saturation.  By moving the slider for the colour you wish to change it can go either up or down.  It is quite useful at times to change the emphasis in an image or add drama to a blue sky.  If the software you use has colour sliders for individual hues that works in either colour or mono mode, then you should be able to do this as well.

I still prefer the monochrome image myself, while the colour has immediate impact, the bright colour is dominant.  Anyway, this was just a quick job to get an image up and I didn't spend much time on it.  Perhaps it deserves more but in reality it is not a great image for me.

Re: I like the geometry in this photo

Very nicely composed and nicely contrasty.

Re: Before I read that comment

My first thought was to suggest cropping a bit of the foreground away.  Then the comment changed the photo......

Re: Evil?

Not to put words in anyone else's mouth, but I suspect Lou meant to crop it to a portrait format removing some of the grass on either side as opposed to actually taking it in portrait position at the time of exposure, since that has long since passed.

As to the evil look, it is certainly there.  I believe earlier you mentioned Dennis was a police dog?  If so this would run against character

the 14-54 mk1 is a fine instrument indeed!!

The picture evokes Man-flight as more like that of a bug than of a bird, i.e., with power and structure encapsulated in a glossy exoskeleton. Roof trusses are a nice echo of the plane's interior frame.

If an insect analogy were intended as theme, closer crops on sides and bottom combined with having near rivets sharp in the DOF would help carry the idea. If not, the photo is an eye magnet regardless.

Most anyone who drives an automobile could feel in tune with this machine in a way that would never occur to them relative to a modern jetliner.

Re: Rudderless: 20th Century love affair

Nice nostalgic image coupled with a fitting poem.  Not certain but looks like a 1962 Buick Skylark.  Automobiles were certainly the 20th century love affair for North Americans and perhaps others.  In the fifties and sixties they defined who we were and to this day for many still do.

Looks like it could have been driven in there recently, but probably not.  Seems strange to see in that sea of green floating without direction or purpose.

On first look I didn't pick up on an "evil" vibe, and still don't. If the animal were standing (which I originally thought), I saw him as looking subservient to whoever is in front of him -- acting humble in the pecking order, so to speak.

Now in hindsight I know that the dog was running, the look seems wholly normal; human sprinters and runners also can have unusual facial expressions when snapped in motion.

The foliage is pleasing contrast to the dog in color and texture; imo no crop is needed.

Re: Evil?

I actually think he looks more like a bull on this one than a wolf. Here he's scratching the left foot against the ground before beginning his attack and the ears kind of like bulls hors - pointing straight up. Then he comes running at you and you just gracefully dance with your red cloth around him

Re: Balrog

Not so much a cat as a kitten! Cute blue eyes and inquisitive pose.  I'm not exactly sure, but does it have white on the bottom of the rear legs or is that a shadow or indentation in the surface upon which it stands?  Think it would look a little better with a more even white background as there seems to be some variation in tone.  I have no idea how to achieve that after the fact but for me it would improve the image.

Random clicks from today.

Random clicks from today. The pics were taken with E-30 + ZD 50-200mm Mk1 + EC-14. Increased the saturation levels a bit to get the pop art filter effect.

Points of Light

Fireworks seen from above on the 4th of July. We climbed a trail to a ridge at around 2000 feet overlooking Pasadena and the Rose Bowl, about 1500 feet below us and 2 to 3 miles away. The Rose Bowl press box can be seen in the lower left. E-5 with 50-200 mm and EC-14 at 283 mm, ISO 100, f/5.6, 4 seconds. In-camera noise reduction. On a tripod with cable release and no shutter delay. Timing the shots for a burst of light is mostly luck but using mirror lock up made it very difficult to catch a fireworks burst.
