Re: A look of Calmness.
In reply to leeland48, 6 months ago

Can't tell, Lee. The view of the calmness of the landscape scene is blocked by some animal in front....

Just kidding you, as usual.

Interesting composition. But, not trying to criticise you, I would have probably opted for a different one. Point is, we don't see too much of an eye.

Very nice artistic PP - again - I wish I could do this sort of thing.

Must try !!

Thanks so much Erik! Sometimes it takes me a bit to get the results I want, then after I get the look I want I can't remember how I did it.

If it pleases you then to hell what everyone else thinks!

Isn't that the way ??  We finally work our way through the PP maze and can't fine the way back again.

I've even tried keeping notes but either misplace them or they're too much "shorthanded" to help

Re: Cloud reflections
In reply to Ianperegian, 6 months ago

On both shots you unfortunately cropped the top of the clouds. Should have used less zoom or compose differently. We need to see the whole could on top with its whole reflection at the bottom. That is what I would have been attempting if there.

Still, both are beautiful shots. A very, very interesting place to be!

Erik, you need to start with your picture in a separate post under the first one.

The poor horse got his head cut. Why is everybody always interested more in carriage than in the animal responsible for moving it???

Good post-processing. It is believable!

The poor horse "never HAD a head" this was film shot om Kodachrome so only one shot was taken.

The original is here:

http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3628676

This rendition was derived from the relectin of the back of the slide, straightened, turned into a positive and the cars removed as some suggested on the original. I just removed the modern car and replaced it with the sort of blur one usually sees on early "salt prints" (so called because they were made on ordinary writing paper sensitized with Silver Nitrate and regular salt - Talbot invented the "negative-positive" system but his 'negatives' were paper instead of glass or film, so they wer blurry.)

Here's a salt print from the 1850's, showing the effect I was imitating since the reflected image already had a similar look:

I'm curious - why do you think I should post my weekly "thread-opening" shot separately? I notice that the "wildlife" thread is done that way.

Very nice set Karen. #1 looks really artsy. #3 is most interesting for the color isolation. All were nicely done.
