I wonder how difficult it will be to actually under-expose a picture if you WANT it to be under-exposed. I guess just adjusting the exposure compensation or purposely choosing settings that will under-expose it.

On Corel announces PaintShop Pro X5 article (62 comments in total)

Thanks for alll you posts (b4 mine). I am still using X2. My 1st impressions of X5 was pretty much the same as everyone else's--just more fluff without substance. I was waiting to see if X5 added any major improvements. I'll get X4.

On Pair in the Storks challenge (1 comment in total)

I don't think I will ever understand how the ratings end up here. This shot is excellent and far better than some rated higher. I love the golds and soft greens in this image. Sure, the storks aren't the most colorful, but we aren't judging the animals--we're judging the shot and this shot is excellent.

On Painted Stork in the Storks challenge (1 comment in total)

Wow! This image definitely does not deserve 16th place. Maybe 2nd place. It may have been the graininess of the shot that hurt your rating. Anyway, I think you deserve much more praise for this than you received.

Definitely one of my favorites for this challenge. Congrats on the win.

Hmmm. I wonder if someone can provide me augmented reality glasses that, when I put them on, I can see the surroundings as they were 10, 20, 30 or more years ago? I've seen the town of Pleasanton, CA go from a sleepy little farming town (in 1970) to a large city. I actually have scanned pic from 1970 taken from the foothills looking down on the valley. (Back when my legs and back were in great condition and I could hike all day long.)

On Snowball in the Fancy Felines challenge (9 comments in total)

Great shot. Demonstrates that photography is more than merely point-n-shoot. You kept the background simple, keeping the viewer focus on the main event. You had the cat interacting with its surroundings, something I didn't see in any of the other submissions.

On Yosemite Falls in the Ansel Adams Natural Landscapes challenge (3 comments in total)

I need to take back what I said. I just went out and view Ansel's photography (its been way too long since I looked). He had a lot of very deep shadows in his work. While reviewing, I was amazed with the equipment he had to work with. I'll never again complain about carrying my backpack with camera & lenses. LOL

On Yosemite Falls in the Ansel Adams Natural Landscapes challenge (3 comments in total)

I'm struggling w/ y i feel i can only give this 4 stars. I've shot this exact scene a few times before, most recently June 2011. Everything about this shot is excellent. The only thing my eyes caught that took me a moment to realize is that I would have have raised the lighting in the shadows a bit.

On Tranquility in the Ansel Adams Natural Landscapes challenge (1 comment in total)

nice job on capturing the fog and water. If it weren't this particular Ansel contest, I think I would have dodged the foliage in the foreground.

I thoroughly love the tones (hi key, yes?) in this image.Really works well for a b/w image. I just learned something.

On Tunnel view - yesomite in the Ansel Adams Natural Landscapes challenge (3 comments in total)

Same shot but b/w? ok--catch both camps that way. I liked your color one more. I really struggled with this challenge. Do I submit b/w or color? Do I desat the image so that there is "some" color? Looking back, I wish I would have stayed with full color on the sunbeam shot.

The winter scene adds some character to this well-known shot. Looks like the sky and clouds were being cooperative too. Nicely done.

Perhaps clone out the jet stream. It detracts from the overall beauty.

On Pikes peak AA in the Ansel Adams Natural Landscapes challenge (1 comment in total)

It's a sharp foto. You've framed it nicely. But where is the subject? Where are the eyes supposed to go? My eyes wondered this pic looking for something to see.

I'm a sucker for trees like this. I took one over 40 years with my father's 35mm that is still one of my favorites.

Reminds me of a road on the way to Yosemite.
