    Welcome, I don't live in California but I've been there several times. These photos do a very good job of conveying what is special about the place. You've got postcard views in your shots, but you ...
  • Vidau, Your creativity amazes me.  You are constantly coming up with new stuff that packs a visual punch.  I don't comment often because you post a lot, but I really look forward to your posts. jbf
  • Greetings, Here are my thoughts on your photos and your questions. There's nothing wrong with choosing one type of subject to photograph. However, as others have said, you need to be extremely ...
  • There are so many cheesy, one-click effects out there that it's hard to stand out when doing heavily manipulated images. It's clear from taking a moment to look at your images in detail and read ...
  • Welcome Jon, I like your blog and I like the photos. Just an fyi since you're new to the site, it's perfectly fine to post your photos in this forum, however, there's a Portrait and People forum ...
  • Thanks for the info. I agree about the importance of connecting to the image and having an emotional response, even if it's a reaction you can't necessarily put into words very well. You mentioned ...
  • Most abstracts leave me confused and fail to grab my interest. A lot of people don't try to appreciate abstracts which is perfectly fine if it's not their thing. I'm interested in the topic, so I ...
  • Glad you decided to share some photos. These are great. It feels like cheating when you have such amazing scenery to photograph. You got the essentials down- nice compositions with interest in the ...
  • Commented on Water drops in the Macro - Foil challenge

    This photo has got a little magic going on. You've definitely found something with this. Keep experimenting with it. The opposing colors, contrast, texture, and lines between the top half and the ...
  • This is a great photo. Besides being well executed and showing a lot of personality, what takes it to the next level for me is the clothing. Normally you don't want distracting clothes in ...
  • Very cute photo and well executed.  Some people like this type of processing and others don't.  I like it, but my personal preference would be to back off the processing a little.  Two other minor ...
  • Commented on WLG_4091_edited-2 in the Life and death challenge

    Incredible find. I really like this one.

  • It's true that some people might intend to insult you by asking that quesion, and if you're a defensive person you could respond to everyone as if that's the case. Most of them are probably trying ...
  • The previous poster brought up some good things to work on.  It should also be mentioned that this photo jumps off the screen due to the light and contrasting colors.  Great job of isolating and ...
  • I wasn't so much trying to criticize the OP for posting the question.  Questions get repeated all the time.  My goal was to provide links to previous discussions for the OP's benefit and ask a ...

    Speaking of things that have been done before, this topic has been posted to dpr many times: Has everything been done? Cliches, should they be avoided On originality in Photography Modern ...
