  • Actually, I really like this social commentary image. Humorous at one level, but maybe more underlying meaning could be there as well.
  • Replied in Reed Abstract
    Understood. I recently tried to post on the Nikon dx forum and got minimal response.  My stuff isn't good enough to get much response on the nature forum.  at least this time you got some strong ...
  • Maybe because of my repressed personally, I like the third the most. It has a story, is subtle, and it keeps my imagination engaged.
  • The first is a grand display of shapes, tones, and pumpkins. The second is eerie and darkly evocative, like a spooky scene from an old children's story. (The third totally eluded me ;-))
  • I'd slightly lean toward the color because with color there is more to consider. Unless you are striving for a minimalist presentation, there does not seem to be a lot that stand out or invokes ...
  • Replied in Winter Tree
    What a wonderfully subtle presentation and combination of elements. Everything you post is best viewed full size because nothing needs to be hidden with small images! I think there is  a large ...
  • Very respectful, direct, and engaging set. You have done a great job presenting compelling images with care for all of the people involved. There is much pain, fear, hurt, distrust, injustice, and ...
  • A very interesting photo with a lot of potential. Unusual combination of artifacts of nature and worth a long look. Like so many of my photos, there seems to be a bit too much or too little in the ...
  • Replied in Reed Abstract
    Oh, I really like this. Wonderful tones, shapes, and implications of movement. Good to see your photos here again.
  • I have a hard time thinking of any Leica as a "point and shoot." . . . but then again, I all too often use my nikon dslr as a point-and-shoot. . . I very much like the passages and bricks and range ...
  • Replied in A Candle...
    the second one has somewhat more tension and strength of implications, but both are revealing a story of family, culture, participation, young learning, . . . etc. Reaching up, engaging in the ...
  • Replied in Badlands
    Thanks for your comments. I remember shooting the one with the tree and wishing the tree was smaller, some want more, others want it gone, etc. A good exercise in landscape vision for me as I ...
  • Replied in Badlands
    I truly appreciate your comment. The tree has been a factor of various impressions on this and the Landscape forum, positive and negative. Here is a redo without the tree, which has likewise been ...
  • Replied in Badlands
    I am so very tempted to learn how to clone in artifacts or elements! The tree was seen as too big by some (Landscape forum) and they did not like the half tree (which I initially kind of liked). ...
  • Replied in Badlands
    Your photos typically have a contemplative quality that is rich and complex, but not at all dark or negative. There is a depth in your photos, and dignified. At the risk of assuming, I feel a ...
  • Replied in Badlands
    Thank you for your encouragement! I always feel your BW processing has a distinct and compelling quality! Here is a redo of the second picture, and a revised approach to the first. I'm using this ...
  • Replied in Badlands
    Thanks Ken. Here's another rendition. . .
  • Replied in Badlands
    Thank you for your kind comments and observations. Here is another image without the tree. Walter d.l.i. noted that the midday sun is not helpful, and he is correct. I've done little landscaping ...
  • Replied in Badlands
    Thank you very much for your kind comments and input. Here is another image redone without the tree: You are very correct about the midday sun issue. Next time I go there in the later afternoon and ...
  • Replied in South Dakota
    Thanks. I don't take myself too seriously. I was mostly joking. However, there is a delicate process of knowing where the line is between legitimate skill and preference. I trust more experienced ...
