***1/21/18-1/27/18*** Weekly Show, Tell, and Critique Thread

I am glad Greg asked me to host this week, makes me feel even more that I am back. I wish I was as active with my cameras as many of you are, some amazing photos, stories of great interest, and shared learning happens here.


The Threads Guidance from Greg:

"My original thought was to have a thread that was primarily focused on the images, rather than the equipment used in creating them. It was called Show, TELL AND CRITIQUE because my feeling was that people could show an example or two of their most recent work; tell us a bit about the context of the image and why they chose to present the image in the way they did (composition, colors, post-processing, etc); and then the participants would offer constructive critique. Anyone posting an image would understand that they were inviting CC. That way, we’d hopefully have some interesting conversations, and we’d all (not just the person who posted the image under discussion) learn from one another. There is an enormous amount of combined artistic and technical talent here to tap if we can find a way to do that."

"The host couldn’t possibly do CC on each image, or that would be a full time job to say the least, nor would the host be expected to issue vacuous praise of each image as is generally done in the Challenges. The host would just keep things running, start and close the weekly thread, bring the thread to the top if needed, add another page if needed, etc. Of course, he/she would be able to participate by posting images and offering CC the same as anyone else."

"Anything goes in this thread (as long as DPReview's general standards are not violated): any camera; any subject; any post-processing; etc. Recent images you have created in the past week or two are much preferred but not required. A little background on where, how and why you made the image(s) you posted would add interest. By posting here, you are inviting constructive criticism and general discussion of your images. Please share your expertise by providing constructive criticism on photos others have posted."


First, I will get this started, then, after a cup of coffee, I will come back and find something worth showing. Carry on without me please.
