  • As a matter of fact, Steve, I used to keep very large pink kneed tarantulas, as a boy.  My mother hated them until I used one to scare off a door to door salesman. My last testament will read, ...
  • Nope.  Steve, I think cropping for re composition isn't really changing my PP, though I'd never thought about it.  Your enthusiasm for pix and  for finding compositions is infectious.  Our largest ...

    Welcome, EJ.  I hope you post your work, the more pix, the better.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix

    Well, Andrew, if I were driving that one I'd attract lots of cops.  What year is yours, and is it a stick or slushbox?  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix

    Thank you Frank.  I really enjoyed the E3 and it got me great results.  Thanks for your comment.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix

    Andrew, I haven't posted here for a while and I've missed this thread. I can sit at the computer a bit longer, now. So, here are some from my archive. I'll be out taking new pix in a short time. ...
  • Thanks, Rick.  I'm trying some new tech in PP and that sheen has been one of the results.  Now, I have to figure out why I can get it on some pix, and not on others. I learned to compose with a 50 ...
  • Thanks, WhyNot.  The flowers were cooperative.  I tend to avoid indoor shooting.  Too many weddings and other parties, years ago.  I shot with a Rokkor 50 mm f/1.4 for thirty years.  The prime ...
  • Andrew, I made many, many great pix with my E3.  It's no slouch.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thank you, Richard, glad you like.  I haven't been able to use the Leica wide open, as it's been sunny and my shutter won't quite hit warp 1.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thanks, Andrew.  As soon as I get out of here for a day, I'll have some pix for your thread.  I like to find something a bit unusual for that thread. Might have to have another surgery.  Just an ...
  • Hi, all.  I'm getting discouraging news on the medical front, so, naturally, I immediately bought a pristine Panasonic Leica 25 mm f/1.4 Summilux.  I intend to croak broke, dammit!  Although, not ...
  • Great pic of your grand daughter.  The boa appears well fed.  Always handy to have a bunch of grand daughters.  :-O Here's one of my daughter and her friend.  The juvenile yellow anaconda has ...
  • Rick, I have always liked Slim Newton's great gem, "The Redback on the Toilet Seat." I once was owned by a ten foot Boa constrictor who, at eighty pounds, would get you all the breathing space you ...
  • Not very offended, please don't sweat it.  I get a little bit of attitude every so often.  Then, I realize I am an anal sphincter.  Your apology is courteous, but unnecessary.  Thanks,  Rich http:/ ...
  • Thank you, Richard.  Those roses are fussed over by about a dozen 'garden clubbers' here in this building.  They feed them, prune them, and even hand pick bugs, except spiders from them.  No ...
  • In his reply to this set Rick (BabuRick) said he thought it a S African marigold. A few years back, I re edited someone's pic without asking first. I got yelled at. Now, I ask first. ;-) Besides ...
  • Thank you, Steve.  I'm shooting RAW and adjusting all eight colors to suit my garish and lurid personal taste in flower color.  Orange is one of the most fun to play with, unless there are people ...
  • Thanks, Andrew.  Roses and irises are my favorites.  The building has a garden club and a professional yard care person.  They fight with each other over what gets the attention from the pro and ...
  • Thanks very much, WhyNot.  I missed you too.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
