  • Most of the time I don't carry anything in my pockets. Heck, half the time I don't HAVE pockets (a pox on the designers of women's clothing).  Look at all the people carrying briefcases and ...
  • Welcome to New York City :-)  The fact that architecture often does overwhelm people is one of the interesting ideas contained in this image.  Or does "subject" always have to be a tangible object ...
  • Replied in My Dad
    If you can scan the photo at higher resolution, that would help.  Here's my try using Smilla Enlarger to upsize the image to (roughly) 1600 x 1600 pixels.  Then some adjustments and smoothing in ...
  • Replied in I like cats!
    Hooray for sleepy cats on a busy day!  Helps us keep our priorities straight ;-) I could have cloned out the bent whisker, but then it wouldn't be Nick in all his chaotic glory.
  • This thread has so many nice variations on this image, I have nothing useful to add.  But it's my hometown so I want to play.  New York City is not the only town that plays Gotham in the movies ...
  • You want your Fuji Velvia 50?  Polaroid 690 Warm?  Kodak Tri-X 400? Go install G'MIC right now. Honestly, it makes no sense for any GIMP installation to be without it. The G'MIC plugin contains ...
  • It's simple common sense. Given a smartphone and a Facebook or Twitter account, selfies are a very effective way to communicate. You don't have to like it, but for many (probably most) users of ...
  • If this is the best file you have to work with, then a straight-up photo restoration won't get far.  Try some "artistic" filters or a program like Fotosketcher. The best I could manage with quick ...
  • For a subject like this, I think most people want to see every detail in those beautiful feathers, even at the cost of some added noise.  So I pushed the clarity, contrast and high-pass sharpening ...
  • You have set yourself the challenge to capture images in-camera.  That's great if it inspires you.  Artists define processes that are meaningful to them, and you have found yours.  More power to you. ...
  • Nice shot!  Three stops down at Jackson, you get ceiling tiles. Edited in an attempt to make a blurry P&S low-light snapshot look intentional ;-)
  • I tend to forget the EVF on my G1 exists. As an eyeglass wearer with bad astigmatism, heavy correction for nearsightedness, and now a progressive bifocal, there's no way I can see through a ...
  • Picasa (the free program you download onto a Windows or Mac computer) has an easy and versatile collage tool. Or you could visit one of the online photo editing sites: nothing to install, just ...
  • Harkening back to the OP's question, I'm cooking red beans & rice.  It's what you eat in New Orleans on Monday to recover from the indulgences (and expenses) of the weekend. Learn to cook honest ...
  • Sorry about that, I should have been more clear about my meaning in the prior post.  I do not think, nor did I say, that the bar charts mean nothing at all. They tell us what DPR visitors are ...
  • Replied in Bride for Play
    The closest I get to painting is running FotoSketcher.  I did smudge a few details where FotoSketcher left odd brushstrokes on her face.  Hmm... maybe I should investigate further the idea of ...
  • I really wish DPR would rename that site feature "DPR Articles Getting the Most Clicks."  Because that's all it measures.  There's nothing here about actual purchases or usage; it's only what ...
  • In my heedless youth, I often pulled all-nighters.  Sometimes working, sometimes partying.  Sometimes both at once.  Who needs sleep?  Eventually I decided to stop doing that.  Most of my friends ...
  • My cameras are almost always set to IA.  That's because I set them to IA when I put them away in their cases.  If the cat does something adorable or a tiger swallowtail shows up in the backyard ...
  • With landscapes I often start with a mid-tone contrast boost and then a highpass sharpen (17-pixel blur in this case).  Then I browse the G'MIC film emulation presets, which are a lazy way to see ...
