Re: 'HandHeld'

There is a quality to this shot that appeals to me. I think it's a combination of the subject matter with the radial streaks surrounding the subject. The high contrast and desaturated nature works well to give the image a unique rawness to it that counterpoints the soft 'fur-like' look of the backg...

Re: Minne's NEW 2019 52

Theme: Creative Movement Got back last night from 5 days at the beach with the kids/grandkids. The 7 year old is a very early riser so he and I went on dawn photo walks every day. He used his trusty cellphone which does not work for calls anymore but still has a functional camera. He got into setti...

Re: Manana Island

It may take me months to work through the Monhegan photos but here is one that didn't ask me for much editing. Manana is a tiny island just across the Monhegan harbor. It was once a Coast Guard station, and after that was home to a hermit. Now it is home to a flock of goats. I considered trying to ...

Re: 'HandHeld'

Thanks for commenting Frank. I suppose this image would/is subjective to ones own taste. Never really gave it much thought until afterwards. I did make the mistake of putting this in the showcase, but had full intention to put in the critique section. My mistake sorry, but glad that you made the eff...

'HandHeld'

While at Keeneland horse race track this past Saturday, I was able to capture a variety of subjects between races. Some were out of my element as this one, but was taken anyways to stretch for possible growth. What are your thoughts with this image? Yes, No, does it work, or is it just crap? Honesty...

Re: Lost_foot

I tend to struggle with titles as well Frank. He appears to be deep in thought while sorta deep in sand. I can remember my adolescent vacation beach days. Fun to reminisce, but so much at the time. I can fully relate to the scene. Nice capture Frank !!!

Re: Maine Street, Monhegan, moderate traffic

Duck's backlit cat is an adorable image as well !!! Sometimes a vision one has CAN be blind to others. I was standing right there next to Duc...

Re: 'MonheganMan'

While on a recent trip to Monhegan Island, Maine with Minnie, Duck and spouses, I just happen to stumble across this individual. He seemed to be coming from the back end of the only grocery store on the island. My first intention, with the post processing, was to make a simple B&W conversion and a ...
