  • Replied in Untitled
    Like many of your images, this one appeals to my pleasure in geometry with its mix of shape and form. And since I crop to any ratio that pleases me regardless of whether it’s a traditional one or ...
  • Replied in Untitled
  • Replied in Persuasion
    A deceptively simple and lyrical image, a short poem about the transient nature of life in general, and the power of natural forces, water and wind, in shaping every living thing. On my other ...
  • You’ve shown us other scenes from this monster of a building project, and how you’re showing us some close up, with a better sense of what they’re actually doing. The detail of the worker helps ...
  • The first thing tha struck me was the perfect choice you made in this image’s conversion/toning/processing. The image itself is pretty outstanding, with the strong diagonal coming up from lower ...
  • While the scene itself is not especially compelling, the wonderful cotton candy clouds (in two flavors) make the images compelling. Combined, of course, with excellent compositional choice of how ...
  • Actually just before dawn, and as many of you know, the Oly is not at her best before sunrise, esp with long lenses and fast shutter speeds. But they were elk, and they were beautiful, so I had to ...
  • Replied in Mushrooms ...
    Very nice image, once again, of these unusual (to me) fungi, with all their detail and their shiny, almost varnished, exterior. The angle of the log is just perfect, and its detail is just as nice ...
  • Replied in Hard Sell
    Very nice image. The circles and ovals of the yellow and green produce stand before the drab blues and grays and rectangles of the weathered structure. Catching the proprietor in his hammock, ...
  • Replied in On the farm
    The field is cut, the tractors parked, the firewood chopped and laid by for the winter. The ducks are discussing the change of seasons. I am looking over the fence at the farmyard I cannot enter. ...
  • Replied in Double digital
    A for me, I am as always one who prefers Kitchen Sink compositions. So I prefer the one with all his messy stuff around, as well as more of those lines and shapes contributed by the window itself. ...
  • Replied in Inflection
    This spare composition has wonderful visual appeal - the eye has a place to come in and to go out. I don’t know what this is, but imagine the stringlike appendages to be roots or similar, unmoored ...
  • My first reaction is jealousy since Tasmania is one place I’ve longed to see and photograph. Then this image - first, the muted antique blues and golds are a grand color palette for this. The ...
  • The museum goer has obviously chosen clothing with care to match his/her favorite exhibit. One wonders if the visitor has a wardrobe of offerings to match up to many artists. Whether or not, the ...
  • Replied in Trout Fishing
    I always try this kind of shot but never fully succeed. All suggestions appreciated. In the mountains above Basalt, CO.
  • Replied in Reply to All
    Thanks for the encouragement! Scenes like this are common on a sunny day after a first snow, and I was lucky to be there for it.. I’d looked around Aspen for a place with the leaves still on the ...
  • Interesting image to work with. Blown lights are always hard, but if you can bend them to your will, they can be powerful elements. I like Don's rendition of the "olding" of the building. I may ...
  • Replied in Escape
    Wonderful contrast between the clustered wedding-goers in front of the building, and the free spirited child bounding almost airborne over the grassy lawn in front. The fact that she is almost out ...
  • End of the line, indeed. No new passengers, no sounding whistle, this one's been taken off duty. Like all abandoned places/things that humans build and then walk away from for whatever reason, it ...
  • Wow! A new way to show downtown Manhattan, from the air, a viewpoint we never see. The smooth sinuous curves of the river create a perfect structure for the composition, leading us from the lower ...
