  • Yeah, the E-5 is a great camera and I got some good shots with it but I've sold mine now & replaced it with an E-m1 Mk II. My kit was getting too heavy for these old bones. :-) Thanks for commenting.
  • Lou's and Tinternaut's comments are well explained and, as a whole, the comments on this image illustrate for me the subjective nature of art appraisal in general. So much is governed by personal ...
  • Oh, well. I sold that lens (Zuiko 50-200 mk II) a couple of years ago after switching to Micro Four Thirds. :-) I replaced it with the m.Zuiko 40-150 and 1.4 teleconverter, which gives me roughly ...
  • The upper bird is an adult Tricolored Heron departing from its nest after feeding its chicks. The bottom bird is one of the chicks wanting more food.
  • This is a striking image. I like the low-key approach, which allows the colors in the stained glass to saturate, while still providing nice detail in the shadows. The figure on the right is ...
  • I like the tones in the first image. The cast iron fence is very nice and it's a well balanced composition. I'm not sure black & white is a good choice for this, though, because the absence of ...
  • Coincidentally, I read an article this morning about immigrant workers and one of the industries mentioned was seafood processing, which apparently is fraught with hardship and dangers for the ...
  • I won't try to guess which are cooked but I will say that I prefer the first and that the third looks a bit more cooked than the others. Both of the portrait-oriented images have the ghost of some ...
  • An eerie scene. The whole region must be stressed out with all the fires. So many natural disasters plaguing all of us right now. All the fires in the western states; Texas devastated by flooding; ...
  • The inclusion of the tangled clump of dead vegetation and the choice of a vertical orientation make that tangle a deliberate and important part of the composition -- an island of the past ...
  • Both beautiful classics. They put me in the mood for a Dashiell Hammett novel. :-)
  • Replied in Eavesdropping
    Thanks for commenting, Don. There might be another reason this shot seems familiar to you (vis-à-vis "slice-of-life"): It's from your part of the continent. I took this shot back in July 2009 on ...
  • I think you described the appeal of the image well. I also like the elevated splash in the wave right between the two boys. It's as though the wave is somehow reacting to the boy's departure. A ...
  • Nice job, Andrew. Definitely improves the image.
  • The texture and color details of the pumpkin are well captured and presented. I think better so than if the whole pumpkin was in the frame. I like the framing and point of view.
  • Replied in White Balance
    Both are fantastic. The fur detail in the bear is beautiful and I think you captured an interesting moment. I also like your title.  I think I agree with you that the second looks more natural and ...
  • Replied in Detroit Bridge
    Nice photo essay. It's a beautiful bridge and I applaud whoever came up with this repurposing idea. You've captured its appeal quite well.
  • Replied in Eavesdropping
  • I prefer the second and fourth. It's an interesting truck but I like the concentration on the village and the sky above it. The third image excludes that nice cirrus flair, which I like. Between ...
  • Replied in Window
    A wonderful capture, Andrew. One can imagine the mannequin complaining to the woman outside about a pain in her hip. Or perhaps asking for a dance? The black & white rendering focuses attention on ...
