  • That's a handsome boat, Monty.  The pic is clear and sharp.  You sure get what you pay for, especially with lenses.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Replied in Green Tomatoes
    That's a great pic, Gary.  I like the green cast water drops.  My tiny MZ 14-150 II regularly gratifies me with its abilities.  That's pretty respectable DOF for 135mm at f5.6.  Are you going to ...
  • Replied in Just For Fun
    Well, Andrew, your imagination is much more practical and has a much less tenuous relationship with reality than mine (imagine that, lol). I pictured a roadway behind the camera, cut along a ...
  • Replied in Just For Fun
    A friend here in the U.S.A. sent me this picture, and I have no idea where she got it. She likes to surf the web and collect strange things. She's always sending me strange quotes, cartoons and ...
  • Nice work, Phocal. I bought the ZD 150mm f2 several years ago. After using my new treasure for a few weeks, and being delighted with it, I put on the EC 20, for some BIF pix. It seemed to me that ...
  • Not surprising, Andrew.  A long time ago, I was into my first couple of years of getting serious with RAW and climbing the steep learning curve of double PP,once on RAW,and again on the resulting ...
  • That's good, and funny, to hear, Stew.  I wake up almost every day and timidly open dpr to see what mad ranting I have posted the night before, often in the wee hours, WUI.  I only worry about ...
  • I'm with you, Peter.  It's pretty, and makes nice pix, but Winter sports and other recreation, and plowing the driveway (and the neighbour's) is best left to Canadians.  I don't like being that ...
  • Replied in Yeah, but.....
    I see a bit too much blue color cast in the clouds, just a bit too much blue in the white.  To me, clouds look a bit fluffier and stand out from the sky when the following workflow is used. Since ...
  • Replied in One Rose
    That's beautiful and one of those delicate looking roses, WhyNot.  It looks like if you touched it, all the petals would fall at once.  Loafing, eh?  Abbott & Costello did a great bit on loafing. ...
  • Replied in Yeah, but.....
    Yes, Craig, at full size that pic is amazingly clear and crisp.  I've always wanted one, and now they are really reasonable, used.  You know, Bootstrap Bill Turner,the man you rightly honor every ...
  • Replied in Yeah, but.....
    Craig, I forgot that you have never seen a photograph of me (consider yourself fortunate).  I do actually have three hands, as quite a few young ladies accused me of, (way) back in the good old ...
  • Thank you very much for your generosity with the sign, Craig.  My first victims with the sign will be a couple of friends who own restaurants.  I have many other prospects who know me well and all ...
  • Hey, Craig, you have to grant special circumstances to the ZD 7-14. It is like having a friend or family member who is a savant. That appellation used to be "idiot-savant" but no longer considered ...
  • Don't worry about the color, in my case, Stew. As a child of the sixties, color means nothing and everything to me. Going from PC to Apple is like crossing the streams in "Ghostbusters." Let your ...
  • Three beautiful pictures.  The last one is exceptional.  Very nice work, indeed, Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
  • Thank you, Dave.  Yup, much more expensive than fair, but they had me, they knew it and so did I.  I make much better pix when relaxed so I went for it and it turned out to be just right.  The ...
  • What great color and tones from the evening light.  This light is also great for the beautiful countryside with its gentle contour.  The sky works well with the earth tones on the ground.  Very ...
  • Replied in Niagara River
    I like it, Andrew.  The distant meander in the river makes me want to see more.  The verdant countryside without a single bare area looks lush and inviting, and I always love cloud shadows.  The ...
  • Replied in a slow day....
    I like it, Stew.  Uncomplicated and yet imaginative.  I have learned to enjoy slow days.  That took me years to learn, but I'm so much better off for it.  Rich http://photobucket.com/dfr49_pix
