Re: Flavor at every level

Well, not as complex as attempting an exploded view of a clutch but one of my wife's friends challenged me to do a hotdog. Why? I don't know but I think in her mind she thought that would be tough. Anyhow, I took her up on the challenge and here it is... a hotdog.

Re: I Don't Normally Shoot Color

Yep, sometimes the situation warrant presenting in color. I particularly love that second image. The little critter shows a lot of personality.

Re: 'Sweet Hitchhiker' (composite)

[...] I'm not familiar with the B&W 2 bit litmus test but seems I should investigate. It looks to be pretty effective and I appreciate you pointing it out to me. I touch on it in my tutorial on "3 tone guide to composition" . In that tutorial I use black, white and gray to determine eye flow and su...

Re: 'Sweet Hitchhiker' (composite)

I love it. The new background works so much better than the original. I also like where you are going with the processing, trying to give it that "Saturday Evening Post" feel. As has been pointed out, there are some issues. The halo, while clearly visible around the woman, is clearly visible around ...

Re: Experimenting with liquid pour shots

I'll hold you to your promise not to harm the scotch. Have fun; I'm not a drinker. That bottle of amaretto cognac must be at least 10 years old. I finally finished it and thought to use it as a prop. Strike that. I thought to use it as a prop and so I finished the last little bit. :D The liquid was...

Thanks Frank. I will try that, it would probably work. And the renegade duck is probably unnecessary.
Wow, I was so captivated by the colors and the foreground ducks I didn't even see that loneone on the side. :look:
I think it's time for new glasses... (?)

Re: Experimenting with liquid pour shots

I think the pour-into-no-glass trick is a sure winner. Very out-of-the-glass imaginative! You got the right stuff, Duck. (OK) I really like the glassless glasses, Duck, very cool. Have you done some with the bottle labels and the un-glass? Thanks for the compliments folks. As for a phantom glass wi...
