  • Thanks, Andrew.  I do love that place.  You can really smell The Pacific when the flow is onshore like that.  It's also the most convenient place with snow in Winter.  I often took my daughter and ...
  • When I switched to RAW, Bill Bootstrap Turner suggested Pixmantec Raw Shooter Pro.  It was great.  I still use it, but now it's called Adobe Lightroom.  Adobe bought them out, added bloatware and ...
  • Oh, that rope. I am impressed, WhyNot. You don't miss much. I find them every bit as fascinating when on the ground as they are when in the air. Perhaps their gender and the nature of the subjects ...
  • I must admit, WhyNot, that I got the notion about COLD FUSION from a delightful, light weight comedy, set in the early 1950s, about Albert Einstein, and his neice, and the guy who wants to catch ...
  • I have the most trouble with long, wide panos of shoreline.  It gets curved.  Sometimes it adds to the pic. I noticed in your mountains and wondered how wide a lens you used for the panels. For ...
  • Thanks, Pete.  Better being there.  Didn't have to look.  They paraded by and made sure to present their best sides to any interested.  They kept my attention.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix

    Thanks, Andrew.  That is very good, indeed. I figured you were doing it with brushes and lots of hand work, but just wondering if you might have cooked up some combination of the more automated tools.

    It's a great set of pix, Pete.  The sea looks angry.  I like pix of the wind blowing the waves back.  We get a lot of that here and I like to catch it.  A great mix of old an new homes behind ...
  • I shoot RAW + LSF jpgs at that type of event.  Olympus jpgs are usually excellent if the light isn't from dissimilar sources. Then, I feel like I've not been sufficiently dedicated if I use any of ...
  • Well, WhyNot, to me, this forum is at its best when there is an exchange like this one. I like your work, you make me benefit of your expertise by taking note of my comments and giving me great ...
  • What a great place for a theater, and an art show, WhyNot. I'm wondering if you enhanced the paint job on the Porsche.  That paint looks great, and expensive. Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Happy you were stimulated, Dave. Just imagine sitting and brushing the highlights from their bodies for hours. They are much safer in two dimensions and inanimate.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr4 ...
  • Rope?  You got me, WhyNot.  What rope?  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • After growing up to my 20s in Los Angeles, I was surprised how inventive the people in a provincial area must be to avoid being bored to death.  It takes something like photography to keep you ...
  • You are welcome, Craig.  My dedication to my photography gives me inspiration to brave torrid weather and even torrid women to bring pix here for your edification and entertainment. Arcata is home ...
  • Replied in Samba da Alegria
    These from today.  The North Country Fair in Arcata, on the northern edge of Humboldt Bay. Lousy conditions, too much harsh light, dodging spectators, way too hot, nearly 76°, four degrees from ...
  • It's a beautiful place, Craig.  Are the first and last panos?  The POV on the last one looks like a belly shot.  It looks like the lake is going to spill over onto my desk.  Neat.  Rich http://phot ...
  • Thank you, WhyNot. Nice to know someone else has understanding of the dairy air. ;-) Thanks again, I also greatly appreciate the last pic. I used to do portfolios for models and actresses. I found ...
  • Replied in The bubble
    It's a great picture, Bjoernar, it has great sharpness and color. It really needs to be viewed full size to be appreciated. NIce work, Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • I'd only think it a rut if the result wasn't great, WhyNot. This result is great. If it ain't broke, don't fix it....just make more scapes in the same way. Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
