AK41's recent activity

  • Created discussions Cron Chronicles
    Just daily sketches, no more, no less. Actually, getting used to 240 body after being lucky and trading eight of my old prints for it.  All shots with a rather old 35F2.0 cron. 240, compared to M3 ...

    Dear Louis, Many thanks for the thoughtful and considerate feedback. Now, looking back at my original note to you on the subject, I understand that it (the note) was caused mostly by my deep ...
  • No, Misha, you're misinterpreting my words, or, to offer you the benefit of a doubt, let's presume that I did not express myself clear , thus here is another try: These two photographs demonstrate ...
  • Well, I firmly believe that any visual art is organization of space, like music is organization of sound. While two shots you presented are certainly "properly" exposed and objects in them are ...
  • Louis, with all due personal respect, the question is "Why?".  I do understand the unique qualities of, let's say, a camera obscura, pinhole, LOMO, et al. images, but why limit oneself to the ...
  • Do you really want honest feedback, Миша?
  • While posting is semi–private, I dare to respond: A nice collection of good and quite good shots. Does a great job confirming my perception of the difference between certain population strata of ...
  • Merci, Jean-Pierre, you very generous in this particular judgement. Yes, I am familiar with the material you referred. If, by any chance, you read Russian, there is a wonderful book by great M. ...
  • Either display calibration or perception offset for one or even both of us, my friend. ) Thanks and best wishes. Alex
  • Nothing serious. I just love the guy, read his plays first time when I was nine, go to a theater anytime they are played.  Admire this bust in Princeton U. museum. Hey, appeals to me more that ...
  • An excellent composition + light/shadow/grain balance. For the general level of stuff presented here – a surprising image quality. Regards and best wishes. Alex
  • Rodrigue, I envy you. Bet, in addition to good shots you also got great food and some coffee or tea. Thanks for sharing, dear colleague.  Alex
  • Replied in Mortar
    In my opinion, that agrees with the general visual art concepts, photography, like painting and other graphic arts, is about organizing the space. Everything else is less that secondary. Even if ...
  • Wow, John, stepped in here first time and met you! Good new - an old friend. Nice set. My preferred are above. Best wishes, Alex
  • Replied in Mortar
    Nice shot. Would win in my not so humble opinion from space organization cropping. As, for an example, the following:
  • Replied in US Marshal
    The problem with the shot is not either to use toning or not but that it is  poorly composed. Hopefully an honest, true and unbiased opinion is taken properly. Regards & best wishes.
  • You bed, JD! I love the place – nature and people (my nearest neighbor is mile+ away and he is WW2 US Navy veteran who still hunts, builds roads, digs ponds). Thanks and best wishes. Alex
  • Well, Thomas, my mountain place is about 65 miles NW of Kingston. Would not trade it for California. As they used to say and are still saying – Jedem das Seine . Even, in event Hillary is elected ...
  • Al, the first shot stands out, certainly an outstanding one in the presented series. :) Regards. Alex
  • Wrong, Tony, lot of wildlife and plenty of civilized life too. Wildlife-wise, I have a "personal" she–bear, always bring her some Costco chicken from NJ.  Have somewhere pictures of her and cubs ...
