Re: 'MonheganMinnie' (Composite)

While we were on Monhegan Island, Minnie and I took a walk to visit the D.T. Sheridan Shipwreck. It was a heavily windy overcast day with rough seas. One of the best times for dramatic pictures. Here is a composite of Minnie placed on some rocks with the rough waves pounding on the shoreline. I tri...

Re: Same Sunset, Two Views

For a long lime lens flare wasn't my thing and I could not understand why some intentionally capture a scene for lens flare. However, I have somewhat adapted my ways and rather like some flare in some scenes. It all depends on the subject matter and how it's composed. To me the one you have posted ...

Absolutely, I didn't hear him saying it, but I do remember you telling me what he said. Should have brought my hearing aids along.
Actually, he said "We need to hook up these xxxxing ducks..." but, well...

Re: Poseidon, King of the Sea

Oh my !!! How cool is that ? Love it Minnie, I do remember you mentioning this, but as you stated "I told Dave I was gonna do this, but I don't think he believed me". I just didn't think of how serious you were and never gave it another thought. As far as paybacks? I do have a couple of versions th...

Port Clyde Butterflies

Trying out Topaz Studio which now includes some of the new Topaz AI tools as well as much more flexible application of the more painterly tools (brushes, textures, masks, layers) even within PS. This is a ham handed quick test of it, but it seems promising.

Re: Last Sunset on Swim-Beach

[...] I got these shots consumed with guilt because everyone else was cleaning the cottage and I sneaked out when I saw what was developing in the sky. Sneaky, sneaky. I didn't even realize you snuck off. It's a great shot so I'll forgive you. :D I'm currently sifting through my images deciding on ...

Love the B&W with the dramatic waves Minnie. That was probably the best time to go visit that area. Dramatic clouds and rough waters really sets the mood.
Oh yes, we went at the perfect time, Dave.

I like them both for their contribution to sense of place, but the story told by the second image is very special. Those slippery rocks look very inviting and I can only imagine the storms that house has seen from that wonderful vantage point.
Thanks Piet, I agree with your conclusion.
