Scott Vail's recent activity

  • In fact, it was a comment, rather than a criticism.  I appreciate it being taken as such. Scott
  • Well done..  I might have cropped a bit from the right.  From the [lack of] EXIF data, it's impossible to determine the focal length/lens.  Meaning, depth of field, whether it was done in post, ...
  • Just when I think you can't raise the bar, along comes an effort that proves me wrong.  This just may be your best effort thus far.  If I had to pick between the two, I'm not sure that's possible. ...
  • Elementary retouch..  No need for a detailed explanation as I'm sure the others in this forum realize it's a simple cut and paste using a layer for each, and a small levels adjustment to the ...
  • Replied in Sharp knees
    Exactly what I had mind..  If "sharp knees" seemed a deterrent, selective shadow/highlights might have been my approach.  Dodging and burning, a different and perhaps, a better solution. Scott
  • Graham, I'm adverse to the MS route.  My last valid Windows license was XP.  I managed to download and install Win 10 without activation, on a virtual machine platform.  Admittedly, there are some ...
  • The other thought I had, but didn't mention, is running Windows as a guest (virtual machine) under OS X..  Parallels, Fusion, VirtualBox all accommodate that, the latter being freeware.  I do run ...
  • Recently received from Mike Chaney and you may find this of interest: "MAC NEWS: Development is on schedule for the Mac version of Qimage. We plan to have our first beta available sometime in ...
  • Much appreciated..  I've held off on installing any of the beta's, but your response, as well as others, has alleviated my hesitations. Scott
  • It helps a lot..  One question that I didn't ask is having both, the GA and Beta version installed simultaneously.  Thanks for that. In a previous life, testing and validating software was done ...
  • When does Serif release a GA (generally available) version?  I have V1.5.2, which seems the latest GA version, with a multitude of beta's that followed.  I've been hesitant to install a subsequent ...
  • I added some snow, replaced the sky, changed the capture date (1/3/2015), as well as the position of the photographer.  Not bad for an novice retoucher.  ;) I might also add that all of the above ...
  • Totally different, Ray, yet brilliant.  I don't know how you do, what you do, but it's always a work of art. Scott
  • Commented on photo Smile Behind the Beard in the iBeard challenge

    Congrats and well done -- Scott

  • And, one of your best, Ray..  Love the texture, the photography, as well as the artistry. Scott
  • Commented on photo 2014_1211_140657AA in the The Bride challenge

    I did vote, I don't often vote, I rarely vote. I voted once in this challenge, and gave this entry a "5". I'm sure the photographer might have clone stamped out the ringlet of hair below the...

  • Whatever the reason stated by the OP, I don't see it the responsibility of the respondent to make the call as to its validity. Scott
  • Replied in latest set
    There may be specialists, perhaps Pixel Urologists, who may have the expertise to address such maladies..  (sorry, I couldn't resist)...  :-D:-D:-D Scott
  • All due respect, the model is alluring, the composition has nothing that detracts, but the skin tones are exaggerated, if not inaccurate. Scott
