  • Replied in Champs Elysees
    Carlos, I like this one - in spite of the noise and the fact that it's a common theme to contrast reality with illusive advertising signs showing an imaginary world. If it were mine, I'd crop the ...
  • Thank you, John.  Now I rest easy. Steve
  • OK - I blame Vidau - he is a bad influence on me, with all his distortions and strange filters. :-)
  • Midwest, Check it out - the photographs speak for themselves on 1X.com. It's not all about competition.  If you don't want to post to 'curation', you can ask for critique by the members. Steve PS:  ...
  • John, I've been watching this thread, feeling the need to comment, but biting my tongue because I don't want to be a 'nit-picker'. I can forgive the lack of sharpness - because I know these are ...
  • Vidau, A tender moment. I like the harmony of the fabrics - Mother and daughter's sweaters are similar in texture. The lighting is nice.  Baby's eyes are wide open because there's so much to see in ...
  • Replied in best photos
    Shhhh! 1X does have amazing, inspirational, jaw-dropping, 'wish-mine-were-that-good' photographs . . . .  but don't tell everyone!  ;-)
  • Commented on Fireworks 02 in the Light painting challenge

    I thought your photo was interesting and different. One of the better ones in the challenge. There's a nice balance between the warm and cool colours, and I love the 'nervousness' of it. I want...

  • Commented on Painting with light in the Light painting challenge

    I like your photo. It was one of my favorites when I voted. My first thought when I saw it was that you could lose the blue tent altogether and perhaps the image would be even better without it. ...

  • Commented on Painting with Led Lights in the Light painting challenge

    This was one of my favorites when I voted. I think it shows good imagination, and I'm sure it took some time to get this many variations. I like that the collage has that vivid blue theme...

  • Tom, I read this and then tried it out.  It is a useful technique.  Just wanted to thank you for that. Still learning, Steve
  • Harveydad, 1X.com has a different approach. You submit your photo for 'curation'. Members vote 'publish' or 'reject', and after 50 votes the photo is sent to the official curators who make the ...
  • 4x5 Guy, Hey, you're up early on a Sunday morning!   To answer the question at the end of your post - no, of course not.  I would like the forum to be a rich fountain of information and ...
  • 4x5 Guy, You make a good point. The photo is not Pulitzer Prize material - in fact it is uninteresting and boring.  It's just something the photographer saw and wanted to share with us. If we only ...
  • Davey, You can set the * button to AE lock, so you just press it once and it will lock and hold the exposure - but only for a few seconds. To replicate the AF and AE lock that you get in 'P' mode, ...
  • Jon, The tones are nice, and the clouds add some drama.  Nice texture in the barn boards.  The composition is rather straightforward - the subject is presented alone and square-on with no setting. ...
  • Pic Man, I was the one who said it was a "fairly modern building ". Please don't tell me that I "didn't look carefully".  I gave your photo as much attention as it deserved. I vote in slide-show ...
  • Coronawithlime, Nice textures - I guess these are old kitchen tools?  That looks like a meat grinder. Perhaps focus on just one detail instead of many? Standard Werk #8
  • Corona, I tinkered with this for a while - trying for some brilliant black and white treatment, but finally concluded that this image needs colour.  The contrast between that intriguing blue and ...
  • Pic Man, I voted low for your photo because I didn't think it was very 'rustic'. There's a fairly modern metal building and a motorcycle.   I guess I was expecting old farm buildings, cabins, that ...
