papa natas: I'd rather like she wore dark glasses, like The BLues Brothers.
I couldn't agree more with you, bro.I thought that the dark glasses will give her a more mysterious look. But, yes, We'd be missing those gorgeous windows to the soul.I love the delicate lines of her beautiful face.A face that could launch a thousand ships.Beautiful work, Dutch!Refined young Lady.
Bob Tullis: Papa - [chuckle] With you particularly in mind, I figured this would be the only way you'd get to look down like this w/o fear of swooning/falling. I knew it would be startling, but I figured you could handle it.
BTW, the first session is free. ;)
I had considered cloning out the tripod legs on the ledge and editing in my shoes, but THAT I thought would be too cruel.
On a more serious tone, Bob:BREATHLESS...!!I can't believe the richness of the detail, especially for a night shot.Keep on clicking.Keep on sharing.
Don't you EVER do this to me again, OK?I clicked on the enlarging button, and I almost fell off my chair..!!I suffer from vertigo...That's mean from you, Bob Tullis..!!Now it's on my desktop as part of my therapy.I just can't believe my eyes.

tasad: Lovely image of a drag queen...
You mean HE might be reading these posts too?
It looks to me like a project from the coyote to catch the road runner. No wonder why the government is trying to pull off from education funds.Next: are they going to fart in the bath and count the bubbles?Rochester Institute of Technology... Don't you have teachers or any surveillance to tell this kid: Hey cut that crap? !!!Or at least do not involve the institution's name.
You know, tasad..I was going to contradict you, until I enlarged the image. The face, well, some girls may inherit their father's looks, but not his hands.
She knew others that came before you, giving them bibles and the concept of sin.That's why she was so wary.Next time try 2 chocolate bars.Nothing lures the hungry better than the look of occidental food.That's HOW photographers keep on winning prices and the hungry keeps NOTHING in exchange.Try the morgue next time. You'll be saving those candy bars.
A new refreshing way to see things, people and animals.Creativity at its BEST..!!Colors and compositions are superb...ButThose B&W...OMG..!! Peerless..!!

papa natas: Whoa...Cowboy...!!Just when this viper generation is applying stupid BOKEH everywhere, from the tip of the nose to the eyes on a portrait...Now you want us to relearn to sharp images from end to end?I don't know what's Mr. Orton's great news, because back in the day we used to set our lenses to:HYPER FOCAL.
Right on, Bro!!
Hey, you two...!!Stop Scheimpfluging each other, NOW!!This is a family site.
Mike99999: I'm not a fan of these excessively processed images. It reeks of bad photography.
And to all of these people promoting their favorite Photoshop clone: get a life.
Mike99999,I agree with you, dear Mike99999, about this Photoshop "artistic" promo. Then again, let's not under estimate Mr. Horton's valuable approach: he gave mood to landscapes with his works. And remember: it was back in the 80's cooking negs & slides with bare hands, not in the Photoshop macro wave.http://www.naturephotographers.net/articles0106/dw0106-1.html
Dear Rusk,Thanks for the interesting feedback. I appreciate it.Then again, as you mentioned: HP only works with 35mm film cameras. Well, in my travels around the Grand Canyon area I had the priceless opportunity to talk with local artists about their magnificent works done with medium & large format cameras. I mean guys who's work sells around the globe (giant prints) HP was achieved at f32 (Remember Good Ol' Ansel and his f64 Group?) And a landscape take being sharp from 25cm distance to the infinite, well I'll go home happy with the result. A good out of the mill JPG will do. Semantics, dear Rusk, semantics.Thanks for writing.
This duck really knows how to groom himself for a photo session.I like his feather cut, very neat.Almost like Elvis back in the 70's for his come back.But, yes, but you made blush the poor fellow.Great image!!
webrunner5: Wow, I would of never guessed a Pentax K5 could be that sharp. Nice.
"..Oh, Mr. Ernest Hemingway, I would never guessed that your Royal Typewriter could write such great novels.."
Whoa...Cowboy...!!Just when this viper generation is applying stupid BOKEH everywhere, from the tip of the nose to the eyes on a portrait...Now you want us to relearn to sharp images from end to end?I don't know what's Mr. Orton's great news, because back in the day we used to set our lenses to:HYPER FOCAL.
papa natas: I went to see that video, and sadly I have to report that:1-Doesn't he know that 99.9% of iPhone users (or any other phone) take pics & videos using the phone's PANORAMIC POSITION? Not the portrait one?2- Didn't occur to him to better patent a rotating lens?3- And last, but not least: A Domestic Quality promo video? Sir...?Great idea.Terrible sales pitch.
I can't be wrong.I'm NEVER wrong.And let that be my most humble statement...!!
