Re: Sinuous

Hi Nate,

It's the sunspot what gives it away. I thought it could be sand dunes but also snowdunes but wasn't daring enough to express that finially, but now I do Nice catch and processing. Like it.

Re: 1912

Leoshin, tanks for explaining the background of your image, I appreciate that. Do I look differently to your image now... NO, I found it already a surprising and nice image and I am touched that it has been so clear after so many years.

this photo was taken in 1912. Geographically in Western Ukraine. At that time were very popular photographic studio. Most likely, the picture was taken format camera. On a glass plate. Contact imprint. This greatly simplified if my great-grandparents. Grandfather - a priest.

Re: Guess who's coming for dinner.

Hi John, this is a picture of a small abandoned house? If so then it is left in beautiful condition.

If it still is occupied then it must be a small house and very poor residents that they sleep in the room where they eat and live.

Personally, I really like these telling photos.

Re: Behind the windshield

Hi Anurag Arora and welcome to this thread,

Lovely shots and personally I like the third best were we discover an other child in the background, but they are all fine and build up in good grey tones.

Re: Something blue..

Great shot Jerry and good color choice, could be the blue hour as well.

A stormy weekend.

Luckily there was moonlight last weekend. The sea was churning and the wind was phenomenal! This was a moonlight image, tripod and live time exposure (60 secs) (sorry a coloured version also shown in Serge's Weekend scapes.

I had thought the sea would be more milky but it was a surprise with such a long exposure to see texture.

Edited in Lightroom and Nik Define 2

Looks better I think in blue rather than grey - it gives that cold touch (and it was cold!)

EM-1 and good old SHG 7-14

Blue goes with the moonlight!

Re: BW Threat

Hi Scott,

You color version was also a great shot and I like this one too.

I posted the color version of this in the weekly C&C thread and got mixed reaction. I actually like this version a lot more because I was able to add some drama by working the color channel mixer and the WB & tint sliders and adding some minor local and global tonality adjustments. Some of those changes would have made the color version look silly, I think. All don'e in LR5/

Re: They're Selling Maggie's House

That house could look wonderful when restored, it has a lot of character and standing. Maybe the front garden is smaller than I would expect for such a great estate, but I guess that has someting to do with it's position along the water side. Your processing is fine as it show the desolate state of the building is standing.

Here's a weird one I've worked up for a different purpose with a heavier hand than I typically do, and I'd like to know your opinions. This old house, which was a showplace in its day, sits perched precariously on the bluff over the Mississippi River in Natchez MS. The sidewalk you see is held in place with concrete underpinnings. When I used to visit the late owner, it was held up by guy wires with air under it. The house is in grave need of repair and is up for sale.

Re: Pikerel River railway bridge

Gary, I can just imagine how a steam train ride on that railway bridge over river of morning vapor steaming. You have it very nicely expressed, only the sky gives me a question mark, but you might did it on purpose that way, I don't know, but it can be a result of your PP. BTW I see it now, it seems the result of the dramatic art filter in the EM5.

Cuban Farmer

was in Cuba three weeks ago

there were many ways to go with this image, I decided sepia, increase, decrease shadows, clarity, contrast? I think that I would play around with this for a while.

here is the color version

Re: Cuban Farmer

This is a nice portrait Brad.

The first (Sepia) has a timeless quality to it that I prefer. The skin tones and suppressed contrast suits the subject. I would if you could suppress the wall behind cloning the distracting marks (or perhaps using a wider aperture than f8)
