Re: Reflections in the Rain

I read about your rain in the newspaper we get from Hamilton, Ontario!  An interesting image Dave.   Is the storm drain water captured for use?  Here it would go straight to local rivers or lakes but I know water is in short supply in your area so I wondered if it is captured for reuse.

What's not to like here?  Crispy sharp, and a tasty rendering!

Re: Street Enterprise - New Orleans French Quarter

There are times when I envy street shooters!  As we say in Maine, "Wicked good"!

Re: Phuket vegetarian festival

good photo, I do not get why anyone would want to do it. And if that is what it means to be to be a vegetarian, I think she is in a minority compared to my Vegan friends,

Harvard Detail plus a bonus

Taken at the Canadian War Plane museum near Hamilton, Ontario.  The first is the engine of a Harvard training aircraft.  The second a bonus shows a sign pointing out the cafeteria/café in the museum.  The sign was a cream colour with blue lettering.   I am not sure why they picked that particular name for the café.

Re: Orison to the Sun

Nate, pushing the envelop is good and indeed it is a monochrome and a curious one

Possibly pushing the Monochrome category a bit....E-5 and 50-200 with EC-20. Taken pretty much directly into the foggy sunrise. Vibrance pushed, but otherwise fairly accurate regarding color. Probably best enlarged, comments and criticism always welcome.

Re: Orchids

yes, the color is something that definitely belongs to an orchid and will in many cases difficult to B & W converting. On the other hand, they often have beautiful leaf and petal structures who can be used beautifully. Nice Brad.

Re: Phuket vegetarian festival

Wu, this is really a nice crisp shot. Good light. She don't show signs for an auto mutilation, so I expect this is culture related!

Re: Cartier-Bresson hommage

While I already had seen most of those images it still are an amazingly fine collection of monochrome shots and gives certainly character on your work.

Re: Reflections in the Rain

Dave, I see Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire or Sammy Davis Jr., here They all fit in a scene like this and if there blows strong air from that ground grill you can add Marilyn Monroe too on that row of famous names Good shot.

Re: Harvard Detail plus a bonus

That is quite a nice engine Andrew must be very powerfull. You've captured that insight on all that engineers work fantasticly.

Re: Harvard Detail plus a bonus

Hi Andrew,

It's a beautiful plane engine. Many cylinders it seems. I suppose this one times the machine gun fire to miss the propellar blades with each shot.

I know what the sign means. Take a pretty Dutch woman to the canteen and liberate her hunger.

Thanks for the comment. I did not straighten the columns as I felt that it lessened the impact of the shot. Well, that is my taste I have tried my hand at the keystone correction. Let me know what you feel about the pic:
