MikePDX's recent activity

  • Replied in Hands
    Interesting.  It seems to me that without the "extra" hand it would be a very different image, as Mike said.  This is presented here as a square crop.  So it's possible that the original contained ...
  • Replied in Family Portrait
    Another from my Osprey series from this past Spring.  As usual - no one is looking at the camera!
  • This seems to be my favorite form of landscape. All of these shot from Steptoe Butte in SE Washington State. Whitman County Growers - The Palouse in Washington State Golden Hills - The Palouse Work ...
  • Replied in Thanks!
    Thanks for the feedback. Looking now, I tend to agree about allowing more space at the bottom. But not as far as Mike has shown. Generally speaking, I'd consider myself to be very lucky just to ...
  • All I can say is that Australians seem to have fully mastered the art of having fun.
  • A fine story of the current situation that will one day be an instant reminder of the COVID era.  I especially like #2 - who knew that skulls could cry?  And leave it to the Swiss to paint their ...
  • I think the first tells your story somewhat more clearly.  It seems to show the egret disgusted with the trash.  Having said that, though, the second gives the egret a feeling of helplessness with ...
  • These are very interesting images to examine what I like in a photo.  So I would have to say that I like some of each. The first, in my view, has better lighting, and I prefer it for the flag ...
  • Another from my Osprey collection.
  • It is a wonderful shot as others have said. You captured the decisive moment perfectly. If I were to offer suggestions to improve it, I might suggest a somewhat different crop.  In my mind, a ...
  • Replied in Mike,
    Of these two, both have merit, but I think I slightly prefer the second.  I really like the horizontal crop of the first with its additional negative space surrounding the building.  But my eye ...
  • A couple of you asked for more Osprey photos, so here goes. I followed several nesting pairs from about April 1 through July 1. Their nest platforms were located in a way that let me sit in my car ...
  • Replied in Army Girl
    I sense that she has the look and posture of sheer boredom.  I recognize that look from my time in the army many, many years ago.
  • I like the interaction of the cranes, forming a square frame.  Of course it would be nice to have a focal point within that frame, but you can't have everything.  Maybe you could enhance some more ...
  • Replied in Metal work
    A cluttered, busy shop is a fascinating place, isn't it?  I want to wander around and study all the detail.  But then I don't linger, because you haven't focused my attention on any particular spot. ...
  • I've been gone for quite a while, but I thought I'd pop back in this week. My current photographic efforts have been focused on wildlife, which doesn't necessarily fit into the regular subjects of ...
  • My first digital camera was an E 500. I had been an Oly film shooter for many years and one of the attractions for me jumping into digital with the E 500 was that I could, through an adapter, use ...
  • It was definitely part of the exhibit, and I believe there was an explanation, but I've forgotten it.  Senior moments, you understand.
  • Inside the cargo hold of the Spruce Goose at the Evergreen Air and Space museum in McMinnville, Oregon.  All the clutter you see is part of the airplane.
  • I agree that the Adobe subscription models are a bit convoluted to figure out.  I've been a long-time Lightroom user, all the way back to version 1.0.  So I was reluctant to switch to the ...
