Welcome everyone..

I like to express that it is my intention to continue this thread without any changes.

My function: To host and open this thread every week and be one of the contributors.

For the continuity it would be convenient if there are two, three persons who are willing to open this thread at times when I am unable to do it myself. Please send me a pm so I'm capable to find one of you who are available at the moments needed, that would be great. THANKS

The thread will start every Friday late afternoon Greenwich time.

Lou

They're Selling Maggie's House
In reply to LouHolland, 10 months ago

Here's a weird one I've worked up for a different purpose with a heavier hand than I typically do, and I'd like to know your opinions. This old house, which was a showplace in its day, sits perched precariously on the bluff over the Mississippi River in Natchez MS. The sidewalk you see is held in place with concrete underpinnings. When I used to visit the late owner, it was held up by guy wires with air under it. The house is in grave need of repair and is up for sale.

Nice tones & interesting expression. I'd like to see more space right of the face but it's a nice shot.

Interesting view and treatment. The foremost columns look slightly blotchy, which I assume is attributable to the processing. I like it a lot, though. It has character.

Bath time.
In reply to LouHolland, 10 months ago

You booked a specific room at the Ellery house B&B in Duluth, MN, just to have this magnificent old claw foot bath tub. I just had to photograph it!

BW Threat
In reply to LouHolland, 10 months ago

I posted the color version of this in the weekly C&C thread and got mixed reaction. I actually like this version a lot more because I was able to add some drama by working the color channel mixer and the WB & tint sliders and adding some minor local and global tonality adjustments. Some of those changes would have made the color version look silly, I think. All don'e in LR5/

Threat (E-5, ZD 7-14)

Bird Pics... from yesterday
In reply to LouHolland, 10 months ago

These little birds are hanging in my patio as my daughter made a bird feeder and looks like these birds figured they can get some food..;).... She was watching the birds.... and I was busy taking pics of the birds.... These were taken with E-30 + ZD 70-300mm lens hand hold. I had to bump up ISO to 1000 as they are in shade..... Very minor PP done and cleaned noise in Neat Image.

Thanks for looking.

Nice shots. Black capped chickadees, I believe. They're cute.
