  • Thanks for sharing this link, as it was worth the time spent.  Like you, I don't use Adobe products, but most editing software packages offer very similar tools to accomplish an end result that is ...
  • This is the "what" forum?  Documentary and Street Photography?  Did I miss something? Scott
  • I'm using the latest Beta for Mac:, and have experienced nothing you've described. I don't recall if you're using a PC or Mac, but I hope you'll report your findings: ...
  • Hi Nick,  Looking at the EXIF data, I suspect the date was off by a couple of days.  As I recall, the images would been taken on a Monday, so it should have been the 17th.  I went to work on ...
  • Both threads were fascinating -- the narrative fascinating and photography superb.  In fact, it inspired me to dig back several years, to my only ptarmigan encounter.  Shot in March, still ...
  • Replied in More Pelicans
    All good, but if I had a favorite, it would be the first..  I like the natural diagonal lines formed by your subjects. Scott
  • Replied in Quick help?
    Some selective sharpening, saturation/desaturation, and a slightly tighter crop. Scott
  • Use the pen tool to make the selection in this case. Created fill layer and reduced the opacity to 60%. Scott
  • A complete list of fixes and enhancements in the current and previous builds, and changes since the 1.6 release: Affinity Photo Customer Beta In case you may have missed it... Scott
  • I think the debate isn't about being able to return to Affinity's Develop Persona, but more that the original adjustments aren't preserved.  Thus, changes to those adjustments cannot be altered ...
  • I think this may be the link you're referencing: Redeveloping Images
  • Done in Affinity Photo. Resized canvas to 1600 px x 1200 px after placing an anchor at the bottom center. Selected the transparent area, Edit>Fill>Inpainting. Scott
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
  • Replied in PS
    dunno, ant... I think Zeiss optics are hard to beat.  Obviously, I use the 200mm prime for several purposes.  Street isn't something I aspire to claim proficiency.  I posted here only as casual ...
  • Replied in PS
    I didn't wish to resurrect this thread and hoping it would just disappear, but you're right, it was a long(ish) telephoto, but the crop is minimal, eliminating some negative space that lent ...
  • Replied in Street?
    Perhaps you might refresh my memory,,? Where did I mention, "it was a random selection"? I did say that I was going back through some images, but it's been transformed into "random". Your words, ...
  • Replied in Street?
    Absolutely..  And it violates some of the basic photographic rules, as if they really exist.  There are guidelines/rules, but without breaking them, some of the renowned photographers would have ...
  • And, if I'm not mistaken, Susan Sontag was Annie Liebovitz's partner -- a writer more than a photographer.  Susan passed away, a cancer she couldn't beat.  Annie photographed Susan during those ...
  • Replied in Street? Yes.
    Jeff, I'm sure neither of us understand; "The Evangelist" has spoken..  A couple of days ago, "The SP Evangelist" posted this with the titled subject: 'Little one's dancefloor': Couldn't find ...
  • Replied in Street? Yes.
    My original post explicitly said it was not posed nor did I know these individuals.  If you choose to believe otherwise, that's quite your prerogative.  It's your way of saying my intent was ...
