  • Thank you for that, Ken. I only wish I'd had a 'better' camera for that opportunity. Or at least the discipline to take one of the tripods out of the trunk.  (too soon old, too late smart . . . . ...
  • Ian, All three of these images have been around a while, and I have several versions of each.  What I found interesting in this thread was that there were no less than 8 suggestions involving ...
  • Vidau, I respect your thoughts on this - and I understand the concept. The true artist should be sure of their vision and keep it pure. Fortunately, I'm exempt from this rule because I am not an ...
  • Replied in Windmills
    The strong sepia gives the photograph a vintage look as if it were made a hundred years ago. The dull-day lighting contributes to the gloomy feeling. The horizon being right in the middle adds to ...
  • Vidau, You and I have the same idea for the sky in the middle frame.  I did want to show contrast between the small house and the vastness of the sky.  I'm really pleased that you 'got it'. But, I ...
  • Thank you all for the comments and suggestions.  I'll be going back to the files to try out some of your ideas, especially the cropping. Steve
  • There are some delightful elements in the top photo - particularly the light on the distant hills. It really shows off the variety of shapes and textures. The scene seems restful, tranquil. I ...
  • Replied in Sentinels
    There's  a wealth of detail and texture there to be photographed.  Impossible to show it all in one photograph - you need a whole series, I think.  Close up details would be interesting. I like the ...
  • Created discussions Three old houses
    I don't think I've posted these here yet.  All comments welcome - from 'boring' to 'brilliant'  :-) I find it difficult to judge my own photos, so honest opinions are helpful. East Kootenay Cabin F ...
  • 4x5 Guy, Seems to me the purpose of the forum is not just to show 'good work', but also to communicate, and exchange ideas. Some who view this photo might be inspired to make an image on a similar ...
  • Replied in the Light
    Pap38, Interesting abstract photograph. There's no doubt which way the viewer's eye will travel through this - mine follows the shiny curve up to the top - then down the 'waterfall' - and ...
  • SLN001, Right you are! 'Grayscale' it is. Must learn to choose words more carefully, more better. :-) Steve
  • ukemma, Welcome to DPR! I think there is only one kind of film for your Instax camera, and it produces 'instant' colour prints like the old Polaroid cameras did. There is a filter that gives an ...
  • Replied in Towers
    Andrew, Yes, you've pushed the pixels too far. There are some artifacts in the sky for both bottom shots, and a strong line of them along the hillside in the bottom frame. They could be fixed up ...
  • John, Sorry I missed your photos. Sometimes that happens. I posted a couple the other day that seemed to disappear after only one comment. The top photo, of the shack, is OK, I guess, but the ...
  • John, Are you off your meds, or perhaps on some? A giant, fossilized toad? (the rock is actually a log, I think) And the other day, in Paul's photo of a bridge in Springfield, you saw a 'serpentine ...
  • Beautiful child.  Nice expression of curiosity. Good catch light in the eyes - and such wonderful big eyes!   Sharp, and well-exposed.  Pretty good photo. I'm sure the parents will love it. Vidau,  ...
  • Joe, Toronto to Halifax is 1800 kilometers.  That's quite a journey by any means of transportation, but especially by bicycle!  Great way to travel for a photographer though - slow enough to spot ...
  • Joe, I love photos like this one. So much detail! I just wish it were bigger so I could go visually exploring. It's showing up pretty small on my monitor. I like the 'grunge' look - presumably ...
  • coronawithlime, I think halos often result from sharpening, and sometimes sharpening is included in other processing steps - like re-sizing.  This is a test I did with Photoshop's re-sizing ...
