  • Tim, when you say the photo is "not controversial" it sounds like you are suggesting that this shouldn't be a case where some people like the photo and some people don't like it. You think the ...
  • I get why there's a wide range of opinions on the photo. It doesn't follow the rules in terms of composition. Despite that, I like the composition because of the feeling it conveys for this ...
  • I created an adjustment layer in Photoshop and played with the brightness and contrast to make the edges appear more like the rest of the photo.  Then I used masking to bring back the center of ...
  • Nothing "worst" about your photos. I really like these: pic pic Your subject line reminded me of one of my favorite movie quotes said by Marvin, the depressed robot, in Hitchhiker's Guide: "The ...
  • I like the photo more than others who have posted so far. The static composition you chose works with the scene. The dark grey tones create a mood, but I prefer making it lighter, something like this:

  • There are a number of interesting elements in the scene above: the tree, the bird on the rock, the clouds, the sunlight hitting the water, etc.  Given the distance and focal length of the shot, ...

  • I don't mean to be too harsh a critic, but for me this is a "close but not quite" photo. I like the long diagonal, however the framing seems a little "cut off". Also, it would help if the icicles ...
  • I like your idea and it's a really cute photograph, but to me the background is unappealing. The subject has nice contrast with the background, but there are other options for a simple background ...
  • Great use of long, curved lines in your photos.  The last one is difficult due to the dynamic range.  It's not my area of expertise, but I'm guessing you could go a half stop to a stop darker and ...
  • A longer focal length will compress the distance between foreground and background which, as you've shown, is nice if you want to make it look like the window is close to the beach.  If the field ...
  • Clever idea.  It produces an interesting look. Thanks for sharing, jbf
  • I'm sure it's been done, but I don't recall seeing an unprocessed photograph where the rainbow ends in a "pot of gold" like that. Very cool. The next rainbow I see I'll look for something to use ...

  • Here's my take: I cropped, warmed up the colors, adjusted the lighting a bit, cloned out the stripes on the arm, and toned down the hot spot on the cat. Cropping unfortunately cuts out some of the ...

  • Replied in legit?
    I tried to do a google image search using the photo.  I don't know why I didn't search on the photographer's name - total brain cramp on my part.  Thank you so much for the link Ruth.  The info on ...
  • Created discussions legit?
    Can someone see if they can find the photo that won the Animal Congregation challenge on the internet and verify the photographer? http://www.dpreview.com/challenges/Entry.aspx?ID=876390 I didn't ...
