redsox's recent activity

  • Replied in A long shadow.
    Conventional critique would most likely say the women should have more landscape to walk into, but capuring the full shadows of both is important here, in fact the crux of the matter judging from ...
  • I'm unfamiliar with fencing, but I like the alternation of photos that set the place/event with those more dynamic showing the activity of the sport, which are well recorded. I count 11 photos, ...
  • Replied in Ruins X 2
    obviously a different genre of photo than the dam series you've been working on ---- sedate, serene, without dynamic drama. It looks to me as though the image (columns in particular) could be ...
  • Replied in Untitled
    Documenting a moment of life in the city. Waiting for the bus, It's just another moment in the long trail of human history, but evidently momentous for the guy on the right. I like the patterns of ...
  • Tried this scene from several different angles. I think the bottom image may be a better photo, at least to my taste, with the lower point of view allowing the full fountain to show. The statue is ...
  • Some rich, arresting shots in your series, Lou. This practically asks for viewers to call out favorites, and mine are 1,4, &  12. And of course an opportunity to "meet" you. You have beaten me to a ...
  • That's beautiful, Scott. The hunter (with a camera) captures another hunter. A simple natural composition brought forth through your knowledge of place, equipment and technical sophistication, and ...
  • Yes, my conception of take-off is of an instantaneous event, but the documentary you have posted here shows that is not always the case. And going through your sequence I thought the bird was ...
  • I think B&W suits this well, and I find it to be a nice photo of a contemplative moment in the musician's performance captured in the spotlight. I like it without the mics, but could go either way.
  • Perhaps the fencing represents the local safety net where, at least for some, hunger 'stops,' or at least is put on hold. Noting the hours posted on the sign, I remember a number of years ago ...
  • I like very much the imagination and willingness to attempt something unconventional. I like the simplicity and find it striking . . .
  • Replied in On the Beach
    with acknowledgement for title to novelist Nevil Shute, whose story I remember reading many many years ago while in high school-- ==Kevin
  • OK, thank you for the info.
  • Yes Michael, I do mean a voltage converter. Thanks your your advice. Kevin
  • Created question thread US traveler in UK
    I'll have the opportunity to travel from US to UK later this summer. I have an adapter for wall plugs, but do I also need a converter to keep my bln-1 batteries charged? Thanks for input, Kevin
  • Replied in Disputation
    I would not have thought of Andrew's pp to bring out more detail in the white water, and I do think that touch makes a positive contribution. But other than that I don't have suggestions. I often ...
  • I think a good decision to lift shadows as you did , Andrew. I much enjoy the detail in the bark rather than silhouette. I also appreciate the texture of the field as well as the rich color of the ...
  • Replied in The Surfer...
    First, peace to you with the news you conveyed about your sister and mother. Your photo is clearly an 'out-of-the-ordinary' portrait that, honestly, was not my cup of tea at first glance. But I ...
  • Replied in Fisher bats.
    Original thinking in putting the series together, Mike, and my favorite is the first because the point of view turns expectations backwards.
  • I note a dichotomy of moods:  A shout for attention vs. the prosaic rhythm of a stroll tto the coffee bar
