  • Replied in Stairs
    Peter, What a lot of textures!  I think this would look wonderful as a large print. It's a flat wall in flat light, but you've found some order and rhythm.  The strong diagonal lines lead up to the ...
  • TheWineLake, The moon is illuminated by the sun, so the correct exposure for it is the same as for a sunlit object on earth.  The 'sunny-16' rule gives a good starting point.  In practice, adding a ...
  • Brad, Well I'm not really sure I know what wisdom is either, but I think it might be finally accepting what we knew all along was true.  Maybe it's the Aha! moment when we acknowledge the elephant ...
  • beetle, The first two could be 'perspective' cropped with Photoshop, but the others are cropped too closely for that tool.  A lot of the image has to be trimmed for it to work.  Maybe someone knows ...
  • Brad, Yes, Steve McCurry makes beautiful documentary photos.  Sebastiao Salgado too.  Excellent, both.  Inspiring. My personal preference runs to conceptual photography - images that help me ...
  • Commented on Calm - Film, black and white challenge

    Hans,

    "Strictly black and white images"

    Photos made with black and white film only?
    Or photos made with film and printed/displayed in black and white?

    Please clarify.

    Thanks!

  • Brad, The hobby and business of photography may be thriving, but do you think Photography as an art form may be drowning in an ocean of images?  It's difficult to see the great pictures amongst the ...
  • Brad, Is that your photo of the 'Illuminated Crowd' statue in Montréal? Very nice! Regarding art criticism:  In this age, anyone able to push a shutter button and upload to the www can call ...
  • Easy Rider, This is what I came up with -  a quick edit to black out the windows and a Photoshop lighting filter for drama.
  • Replied in Daisy Noir
    Larry, Flowers don't seem like a natural subject for a 'film noir' filter - but the result is quite interesting, especially when compared to the happy feeling of the colour version.  It's a good ...
  • That's a lot of bridges - I count 5, maybe even a 6th way off in the distance.  I wish the image were larger so I could go exploring in it. It's interesting that they're all arch bridges, but ...
  • John, That's a pleasing composition - it's comples, with lots to look at - but the tones are posterized.  The leaves are solid gray with no texture and the tree trunks pretty much pure black.  Did ...
  • European artist, Welcome - I see you've just joined today! The 'gloss differential' is not so noticeable with matte papers.  That's been my experience anyway. Sometimes if the areas that have gone ...
  • Replied in Into the light
    Or like this . . . . As I said, it was just an idea.  It's your photo, and compostion by committee is not usually a good practice.  I just liked the theme I found in the image - which, in part, is ...
  • Replied in Into the light
    Macro guy, Thanks for posting.  I kind of like this one.  The colours being opposites, and the composition simple on one level, but full of textures.  I've no idea what is is based on, and that's ...
  • Illuminous Image, Thanks for your reply.  That explains why the city lights didn't blow out during the longer exposure for the stars.  I've been amazed at how sensitive the digital sensor is at ...
  • Easy Rider, What an interesting photo!   It looks like something from a movie set - but it's real is it?  Or was real?  The handcuffs are a chilling detail.  And that instrument on the desk - I ...
  • Stefan, Thank you for posting.  It's a lovely series.  I'm impressed with the technical quality of the photos - the sharpness, and lack of noise at such high ISO.   Good work! Steve
  • John, The 'transform>warp' tool is difficult to use for straight lines. Sometimes you can make a selection of the area that needs warping and work only on that. It gives you finer control because ...
  • It's a cool photo!  I've done a few Milky Way shots myself, and I know it's important to put something interesting in the foreground.  What better than a city skyline?  Very nice! I'm curious about ...
