samhain: Too bad it doesn't have a viewfinder.

My first P/S, a relative paperweight (Fuji E500) had an OVF. While not perfect, it helped me get a feel for the shot itself, and the scene in front of me... Not as translated by the camera's electronics. Just food for thought, perhaps.

Instagram's pretty cool. It's sort of a mix between Flickr and Twitter, and more like a site than just an app. As for Snapseed, I was psyched when I heard it was coming out, I plunked down the five bucks for it (coughcoughripoffcough) and deleted it the same day. It's like editing for dummies. For the same five dollars, get Filterstorm and Tiffen's Photo fx, and get SO much more editing bang for your buck.

This was actually my favorite image in the challenge. 4.5 Stars from me. Half a star because I would've liked a smidge more tonal range.

In response to Brian, It actually says "Hard rock" on glasses all throughout the image, but the image istself *screams* Hard Rock. Having been to several myself, I'd have said this was a Hard Rock cafe image even if this challenge was never put forth. But hey, different strokes for different folks. So, thanks for posting a real whiz bang image.

On Curve Ahead in the Traffic signs challenge (5 comments in total)

Saw your pic as a thumbnail..had to comment. First word to come to mind is "clean". The texture of the image reminds me of something I'd see either on a slide, or large format film. Simple, and very effective. Well done.
