    "Explosive lightning pattern"...?   Hmm.  I'da never have thought of that description.  I guess it's apt.  Several decades ago I saw a photograph made by Edward Weston of some exposed tree roots ...

  • Thanks Runnicle, butt you see, the low light focus assist light ain't a gonna help in this situation, if'n you follow. (Taken with the a57, but it's the same issue. On the GXR I can just set it to ...
  • Thanks Tina.   I was quite happy with this one as well.  Another of my favorites is the Datura, which comes from such a horridly nasty looking plant and grows in the absolute ghettos of visual ...
  • Runnicle, DUDE! This is a family friendly site.  What the MFD were you thinking?!  (Oh, and what the MFD is an MFD, anyway?)  Yeah, I guess it's the monsoon which has done this.  I'm at about 7,500 ...

    GRD4 - never leave home without it!  ;) (Post processing from the raws in Lightroom 4.4) - A.
  • This really is nice. As you say, there's some kind of magical quality about the softnesses and the flows. Too bad the insect isn't sharp. I think they drink too much coffee, that's what I think. - A. ...
  • Ah, sadly we seem to have the same malady.  If you find any pills, let me know.  I'll do the same. - A.
  • I have three units: the Electronic View Finder, the ClearViewer, and the Hoodman style big honking gizmo. I find that almost all of the time I use the EVF. The other two are handy, the ClearViewer ...
  • Interesting.  I like the color enhancement.  One thing I note is that the dynamic tension of the original, the man on the right facing to the right in contrast with the path on the left leading up ...
  • This is a wonderful shot as well.  One comment for you, something that I am very guilty of and try to keep in mind (not very successfully) is that your cropping is so tight that I'm left confused ...
  • Interesting! I find the color version vastly superior to the monochrome. There is a vibrance which more aligns with the subject matter in the color version. Good thing you created a version for ...
  • I like #2 a lot.  And thank god heez not in some stupid costume!  ;)  It is fine just the way it is. Speaking of the GRD4 and Tom and camera sickness and such... I just bought a used GXR 28 module ...
  • Replied in Try some more
    I had the advantage of having a father who was a painter.  He left the corporate world when I was about 10 and died when I was about 17.  In that span of time he devoted most of his waking hours ...

    Show more of the building to the left and less of the locomotive to the right.  And maybe rotate it a tiny bit counter clockwise.  ;)
  • Replied in Dill
    Paul, The first one for me is a bit too harsh. I forget, do you use Lightroom? If so, I think I'd back off a tiny bit on the "clarity" as well as maybe on the contrast... well for sure on the contrast.
  • Replied in Primal Rythm
    Indeed!   I must say, the commentors above make me embarrassed for my gender!  ;) - A.
  • Replied in Around town
    By the way, here's a thought for you.  Take the image below and crop it (use your hands in front of the monitor or whatever) so that it becomes a vertical.  Crop off the left side just to the left ...
  • Replied in Around town
    The first three do nothing for me, but I love the last one!  :) I applaud your intent to capture things you've noticed earlier.   My basic rule of thumb (something I learned/decided-upon when I was ...
  • KW,   Cool shot.  My initial reaction was WOW.  I spent a month last year shooting the monsoon in Arizona and made a book from it, so I know the skies and the storms.  Here are some comments you ...
