  • Replied in Doves and Dogs
    I used the Black and White option in the software I have and painted a mask around the puppy. Then they have a setting called opacity that started at 100 but I put down a bit so there is a hint of ...
  • Replied in Doves and Dogs
    Hi Courtney. I think my wife had something like that when she was younger.  They ended up not operating because sometimes it fixes itself and when it  fixes itself it's stronger than if they ...
  • Exactly what we're doing now . But I have people I talk to still as well.  My mother-in-law is 87 and was on her own for 17 years.  Since she moved in with us we notice some times it's difficult to ...
  • A nice series.  I like this one with a little less lake and a dark blue vignette on the water to pop the swan/ water in the air.  It's all a matter of taste though. Grant.
  • The people that do the arranging are really talented.  Apparently it gets set up in malls across the country.  Different florists and displays every time. Grant.
  • Yep.  That one has a LOT of work in it !!!
  • Here are a few shots from this years display. Local florists donate time, design skills, and some of the money to set this up. It's always impressive what the florists do with a mannequin and some ...
  • I hear that Spring is confused because the Leafs are still playing hockey ;-).
  • I like seeing how things are done as well as the final result. I saw the final result last year but was lucky enough to get to see the set up this year. We'll soon be done with winter for a little ...
  • Replied in Fleurs du ville
    Today was set up day for Fleurs de Villes in Ottawa. Local flower shops volunteer to decorate mannequins with arrangements. All shots taken at set up this morning. On the left is a lady with a ...
  • Thanks for sharing your knowledge of the trains.  Without the story the pics wouldn't mean much. 1998 was a good year.  I was a programmer getting ready for y2k (lots of good contracts). Grant.

    You are getting really good results now. +1 on the nearly impossible but try sports mode.  It's about right for what you're trying to get here. Thanks for sharing. Grant.
  • Keep the spring shots coming.  It gives us hope ;-). The shot below was processed using ACDSee with Nik plugins.  Silver Effex  is great for black and white or mostly black and white shots.  The ...
  • Thanks Dutch. Their mom was a 60 pound border collie and the dad a cross between a maremma and a central asian shepherd (over a hundred pounds at a year old).  The dog they closely resemble in look ...
  • Thanks Greg. We've got the same thing here.  Looking back over the past half year there have been big changes in the dogs.  I expect the next year will be filling out for them. I've never had dogs ...
  • Hi Courtney. They are 10 months old now.  They sure change quickly.  I'd say there is about a 10 pound difference between them now. I hope you are getting a lot of shots of your new one and puppy ...
  • Still getting it combined with freezing rain. Pretty soon the dogs coats will start "clumping out" to get ready for the summer.  I hope. Grant.
  • I went for the golden liquid (unless you were boiling beer <chin scratch>)  but you went for the golden container.  Good play.
  • It looks like quite the quiet scene and I wouldn't worry about how the blades line up.   Playing with light brings out more detail. Grant.
  • Are you playing around with the Crisco again Bill ;-). My kids used to get bored and we gave them things to do.  They stopped telling us they were bored.  Flash forward 20 years and the youngest ...
