Re: Minnie's 2020 52 Project

Week #3 - Doubles - two different shots of the same image So I went out in the cloudy wet gloom Friday AM and checked out the swamp. Like everything else it was under water. But at sunrise there was a little break in the clouds and some gold and blue sneaked in. I shot the same scene two ways, one s...

Re: The Swamp Is Flooded

Wonderfully done...seems I've seen a similar image in color good while back Thanks. I took a similar a couple of years ago when it flooded in spring, and it was color. I tried to do something different this time with a variation on the angle, but not sure I like it. Plus this time there wasn't any ...

Right out of the Lord of the Rings! He would make a great model for some of Piet's fantasy scenes.

Re: 2X2 - Another old bird pic converted to monochrome

this one is a wall hanger Min - like a sheet of damn bird music Thanks Piet. I see what you mean and love your words! A new title, I think. Since I've been so constrained by our ark-building weather, I've been digging around in my slush pile looking for images to keep me from forgetting how to do a...

Re: release the raptors!

The Swamp Is Flooded
