MikePDX's recent activity

  • Not really a suggestion, just an observation no one else has mentioned.  At 1/160 second shutter speed it appears that you have stopped the fall of the snowflakes, giving the image a mottled (for ...
  • The Reindeer of Svalbard are smaller than their mainland cousins.  This youngster is checking out the tourists.
  • Thanks for the comments! It is really hard to get a sense of scale here. I purposefully framed out any sky to enhance the feeling of being close to the glacier face. But actually, we were a few ...
  • Curious.  I wonder how this image might have been perceived with a different title... Arm in arm in arm, perhaps.
  • I'm struggling with this image, even after reading the earlier comments. I love the pastel colors, the clouds, and reflections which are aligned with the ripples in the water.  These are all ...
  • Hope I haven't posted this one already.
  • This is a nice image that caused me to study the intricate decorations and details.  I especially like the squiggly reflections in the windows of the building on the left.  Quite unexpected.  If ...
  • Replied in Starfall
    You might expect me to complain about the tilted horizon, after all, that's one of my typical sore points.  But I won't.  In fact I like it - it definitely brings us back to reality and seems to ...
  • Replied in Up the mountain
    Shot this past October in North Cascades National Park, Washington State.  Tricky lighting.  Any suggestions? North Cascades Highway
  • If that first shot was a mistake, all I can say is that I wish all my mistakes could be that good!
  • Welcome back!  I am usually not a fan of 3:2 format for vertical images, but here is a fine example of one that works very well.  I wouldn't suggest cropping off any of the bottom, it helps ...
  • First - a comment on "pomposity" (is that a word?).  Once, I mentioned to my wife that my collection of 40,000 + images represented a "body of work", and that I wanted to make sure it was ...
  • I agree with you that this is a compelling image, enhanced by that lone palm.  The pastel palette is quite soothing.
  • A remarkable photo, and I've come to expect no less from you. I'm struck by how much similarity there is between music and photography.  Both communicate in ways that words can not.  And both can ...
  • Replied in Southbound
    I can't put my finger on exactly why, but I find this shot strangely appealing.  We seem to be looking through an imperfect filter at a world we aren't really a part of.  Like a science fiction ...
  • My first impression was that this shot was a bit underexposed.  Would it be improved if it were brighter?  I'm not sure. There is, however, one thing that makes this image stand out for me - that ...
  • I really like both the mono and color re-do of The List.  And your mastery of post processing never ceases to amaze!
  • I love the way light is reflected off this great seal!  I'm guessing this is an indoor location and shot without flash.  So I just wonder what it might look like if you darkened it a couple of ...
  • Standing on the edge of a cliff isn't my idea of a good time, either.  Doing so while balancing on one leg, as seen here, is just crazy. :-D;-) Your photo is reminiscent of the bleak landscape of ...
  • Probably way too pompous a title! I thought about what to post for this 500th edition, and came to the conclusion that I couldn't settle on one photo. So I selected a few shots from my nearly 50 ...
