Always learning. Slowly. Trying to get it right, whatever that means.

  • Replied in Old lilies
    Well, Brent, you got the backlighting right, but the dining table was easier on my back than the ground. LOL. It's funny; I got the lilies a week or two ago and (as usual) was too crazy busy to do ...
  • Replied in Old lilies
    Brent got it right, just simple backlighting, Steve. I sat the flowers-that-were on the dining table between the camera-on-tripod and a very sunny patio door, then overexposed and focus stacked. I ...
  • Replied in Old lilies
    Thanks, Andrew. I still pop in from time to time. Life is good and busy.
  • Replied in Old lilies
    Hey Brad, I'm just curious: Are you channeling Picasso?
  • Replied in Old lilies
    The natural life cycles of things around us have always fascinated me.
  • and congratulations on your 'new' camera. It seems to work well in your hands. Those are some fine looking azaleas.
  • It takes a village to see faces and kittens. :-) The rate of keepers is pretty low with this technique. When a good one emerges, though, it can really sing. Thanks, everyone, for looking and for ...
  • Replied in Fooling around
    I've been experimenting with different things over the past months (in what free time I have :-( ) and am coming around to using camera blur creatively. Here's one I rather like: Bouquet #160
  • It's high time you got your due here in these little challenges. Thanks to Endika having opened it up, we all get to see just how high a bar you set for the rest of us. Well done, sir! I put three ...
  • Replied in Vote Ted (nt)
    Is Ted on the ballot for this election? Hmmm. And my heart was set on Alice. (Voted in both.)
  • Replied in 3 in the X
    Hey, Paul, that site site of your is eye-popping! Really nice (and I hope you sell a bunch of stuff). And you know you (and MCsaba) can join Drummer in putting entries the comp this time around. ...
  • I echo everyone's congratulations to all the toppers of the galleries. Colin, I must say I'm very happy with the IQ on the EM1. That said, my own work is going in a new direction and I'm starting ...
  • ... loaded with some very moving images, and that makes the voting difficult. Still, I managed to do it there and in the Comp too. Again, I'll be tending to some family matters for a few days -- ...
  • just because ... :-)
  • Well, that's now been remedied: I've slipped, slid, twirled, and flown three entries into each gallery. :-)
  • Replied in Greg,
    Your post makes me want (nay, need) to find the time to get the firmware upgrade. Thanks for the kick in the pants!
  • Life has (again!!) been a little too crazy for me to spend a lot of time here, but I DID vote. Congratulations to you, Trond and MCsaba (great to see you again) and to all the placers. Now, ...
  • Replied in Finally!
    I got a day to my lil' ol' lonesome and worked up three for the comp. Now I might even finish reading a wonderful novel I started about a month ago ... :-)
  • Well said, Liz. Shirley is a gem. And no random troll can change that with his own snide remarks.
  • The galleries haven't changed a whole lot lately. Maybe nice weather has taken hold and we're all feeling young? ;-)
