  • Birds in flight are both a challenge and a reward when it works.  Don't expect that with each outing, the latter is a crap shoot and it doesn't produce results every time. You have a great camera ...
  • The only advice I might offer is being cognitive of trying to relax your grip on the pen.  Concentrate more on that, than the work your doing with the tablet.  From prior threads, I hope you've ...
  • Thanks...  "You can be my wingman any time"..  ;) Scott
  • Thanks for the play... Scott
  • Heed also, the bison.  Cautions about approaching should be taken seriously. YNP is a magical  place. +1 about Lamar Valley.  Spent three nights at Mammoth Hot Springs, and another three nights at ...
  • Buy low, sell high.. ADBE doesn't show up on my list of stocks that show growth.  Long term, who knows.  I'm assuming you own a few shares of ADBE.  Hence, the personal crusade.  For *silly* me, ...
  • Never debated either of your "facts".. The "fact" is, Photoshop isn't going to disappear overnight.  Second "fact", how on earth could you have lived without Smart Objects?  How did you deal with ...
  • In general, I would agree with this analogy.  My take, is that irv00 is skeptical of Serif's ability to deliver a product, being a realistic competitor to the likes of a corporation such as Adobe. ...
  • The difference, as i interpret it, Smart Objects preserves the image in RAW.  While, New Live Filter Layer is applied in Affinity Photo, only after entering the Develop module. So, I don't think ...
  • Replied in Second try
    Well done.  The crop exemplifies the personality this child displays.  There was plenty to work with in terms of resolution.  Love the back lighting, you worked with it.  I might have reduced a ...
  • Haven't used PSCC in well over a  year, but does that differ than Layer>New Live Filter Layer, in Affinity Photo?  Non-destructive filter layer?  Perhaps not as robust as implemented in Ps, but I ...
  • Comparable.  Not a replacement, but a substitute, or an alternative, depending upon your individual needs. Someone mentioned that the user interface with Adobe's Ps lacked in comparison to that of ...
  • Define 'complete'.. All due respect, 'complete' in my definition, includes minimally, the likes of Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver and perhaps several other packages perceived as a 'complete' ...
  • Replied in Argh!
    Problem solved..  sorta... Scott
  • Replied in Two trees.
    I'm going out on a 'limb' here (no pun intended), and I know this goes against the grain of a conventional landscape composition, but I like the #3, the portrait crop.  It's simple, there are ...
  • What I see from this series, a very happy couple.  Both Jet's fans, depicted by both wearing NYJ jerseys and the football being a prop that made this work.  Albeit, Namath likely played long ...
  • Replied in Yana Again
    Nicely done, overall..  I think what bothers me the most, is the blade of grass in the foreground, extending between the subject's thumb and forefinger.  Easily cloned out.  Yeah, her right hand ...
  • You're far too kind.  Thank you. Scott
  • Talent and imagination aside.  I hesitate, in my wildest dreams, to categorize myself with either talent.  But, the play was fun. Change in venue, to in an indoor arena, some 9,000 miles to the ...
  • Affinity Photo, a combination of tools.  Selections, clone stamp, in-painting, to remove the person in the background.  Added a couple of layers including levels, color correction, and saturation. ...
