  • Replied in Astoria Sunset
    Wonderful gigantic sun with that rich Oregon orange in the sky, giving way to the purple cloud layer. What makes it though, is that single bird, sharply delineated against the sky. You could crop ...
  • Glad you broke the rule. That one has a huge cuteness factor. Great angle, not the usual side angle. Your processing takes it past the realm of an ordinary capture though,  well done.
  • And the house finally appears! It IS unusual, both above and below the rumpled bed(?) at the end of the long hall. the cool blue light enhances the sense that this is a more exotic living space ...
  • Replied in Iris
    Iris week! You and Lou chose two very different types of presentations. Yours as light and airy as Lou’s is dark and dramatic. You rendered the unusual colors of your iris so well, and kept the ...
  • Replied in Cocoon
    What on earth is this kid doing inside his home-made cocoon, while being observed by you through that “peep-hole”.  I first thought he’d made himself a hood so he could see his cellphone screen, ...
  • Replied in Iris..
    That’s pretty nice Lou. The detail is lovely, and deadly sharp. We have the view of the bottom blossom in its full glory, the dying blossom above it, and a couple of buds. These colors are not ...
  • I remember similar crazy rides at our rather frumpy state fair. Ours was called “the Bullet”. It left town for good before I started with photography. Yours has a slightly different shape but all ...
  • Replied in Posing
    You couldn’t have found a better arrangement of these elements, the clothed viewer and the naked viewed, on opposite ends of the age continuum. My favorite part of this composition, though, is the ...
  • What a great industrial structure! The canal itself and its edge barrier adds to the composition. The arrangement of trees and structure and water couldn’t be much better. I always wish against ...
  • Just a simple morning shot on the way to look for birds I did not find.
  • For a cell phone image on a bright day, this has much to like. The wide angle approach works on the intricately designed old buildings that would tell us their general location even if you hadn't ...
  • Quite a nice image, made effective by the inclusion of the visitor entering from the left and the arrow which lets us leave with her as she exits right. Meanwhile, we enjoy her visit with Ghandi, ...
  • Replied in Which One?
    A cacophony of color and detail, brought to heel by the red garment of the lady whose form defines the right edge of the image. A reminder, too, that we don't have to always see the faces to see ...
  • There's something classic about a tumble-down pier or bridge next to the ocean at sunset. I am always delighted if I find such a structure when the sun is setting on the coast. But the star of ...
  • Replied in Nino
    Good to see you back here on the Wed. thread! And such a nice portrait you've given us of an elegant gentleman with a serious and slightly quizzical expression that you've caught quite well. I like ...
  • Replied in In the Palouse
    This is appealing in several different ways. First, I love the Palouse for scenes like this, that seem to have come off the pages of farm magazines in other eras. Second, the horse in its ...
  • Very appealing composition with great lines taking our eye right where it needs to go, from the lower left to the people and the panther-car and the light source in the upper right. The light is ...
  • Proof that even a scene as mundane and as intellectually uninspiring as a parking lot can be transformed into beauty with the right eye and thought. The warm circles of light placed in regular ...
  • Spent Monday at the Vicksburg Military Park. This series is about photographing, in different ways, the Ohio memorial. I tried framing it with two of the cannons on the Union battlements. My ...
  • Very nice image of artist at work. The use of the ultra wide is unexpected in such a scene, and even after seeing so many of your images using this lens, I'm still surprised how very well it ...
