  • Kurt, Thanks for clearing that up.  I'm still using CS-5, so haven't seen that new dialog box yet - except here in the OP's post.  Seems it's been re-designed to do the same things with a simpler ...
  • Maybe someone should write a guide for posting photos . . . suggestions - not rules. For those posting photographs: 1.  Are you posting to show your photo - or do you want critique and comments? 2. ...
  • flipper 85, Don't give up on your poster idea.  Sometimes the 'rules' can be stretched.  If it's a good photo, viewers will appreciate it even if it isn't technically perfect. Regarding my ...
  • flipper85, Your English is fine! Welcome to DPR. First, in Photoshop, make a copy of your image - 'Image > Duplicate' Go to 'Image > Image Size' Make sure 'Constrain Proportions' is checked and ...
  • I think it's a great photo!  Excellent sharpness, nice out-of-focus background highlights,  and good black and white processing.  The animal's expression is the magic element. Steve

    Ian, I like those crows!   Can't explain why.  They seem to be calling out for some Photoshop filters, or to be extracted and put into the sky of another photo - or something.  I like the way ...
  • John, I like the bottom photo.  I think the high contrast treatment suits the subject and theme of the city growing exponentially. All those cranes in silhouette make for a strongly graphic image.  ...
  • Ken, There's a big white spot in the upper right sky that needs retouching.  :-) But seriously - a nice landscape shot.  I like it.  Classic composition, nice tones, all 'round very pleasing to the ...
  • Replied in On the floor
    John, I had a Rolleiflex with a 75mm f/3.5 Tessar - and it was only 'glorious' at f/16. :-) I think that must be where my bad habit of stopping down too far began. Corners were pretty soft until ...
  • I can confirm that. My 4870 is slow too - much slower than a dedicated film scanner. I've used the 4870 with Firewire and USB 2, and didn't notice any change in scanning speed, which would ...

    thanda, Another Lith print?  They have a wonderful antique look to them, partly from the sepia, I guess, and partly from the unusual tones.  I'm not really sure I like them, but they certainly do ...
  • Photoshop is able to simulate the colours that a colour blind person will see. It's in 'View > proof setup > Protanopia type / Deuteranopia type'. Here's a link to Adobe's info page . . . . http:// ...
  • Replied in Daisy
    NoRules, Your name is 'No Rules', but you've followed many of them with this composition. :-) There is a subject, there are leading lines, there are 'framers' in the corners to hold the viewer's ...

    MoreorLess, I like the top photo.  You did a good job with a familiar theme. No exif . . . .  :-(    I always like to see what aperture and focal length were used for macro shots - it's how I ...
  • Joe, A wonderful subject.  I can see several human and animal figures in the bleached wood! A pig, a skull, and more. The processing is unusual.  I know from your gallery that you do good editing, ...
  • Hello, MontrĀéal! I tried just now and was able to upload two photos to my gallery. I used Mozilla Firefox for one and Internet Explorer for the other. (Windows 8.1) DPR has often had problems like ...
  • Dr Paul, Your filtered version is  . . . . .  how shall I put this?  . . . .  interesting.  :-) I think I'd prefer to see the bird more realistically, but, as Vidau says, it's fun to experiment.  ...
  • Ian, Nice series. Birds must be one of the most difficult subjects to get sharp. They move so fast and you pretty much have to use a telephoto lens that has little to no depth of field. I think you ...
  • Replied in Rushing water
    Alex, Nice job on the cloning! Steve
  • mlamp, I like the photo.  The green water makes it seem exotic somehow, and the stormy sky adds some drama.  The red accent on the post is a nice detail. 24x36 is a big enlargement, especially when ...
