Re: statistics and critiquing tactics

Kevin, you are absolutely correct in your suspicions. I'm not too active here on TE, mostly lurking, but on TL there is a prima donna who cranks out platitudes all day long like "beautiful photo" and...

Re: The purpose of points ......... again

I had a similar experience on TrekLens. I questioned why one of the "gods" of TrekLens was so quick to perform workshops on others' photos, but never allowed them to be done on her own. I was hit...

Re: How do I "END" my profile on TE??

Photos of pets are very well received on TE's sister site, TrekLens. TL has a different "feel" to it than TE, as well. Having spent time on both, I would say that TL is a bit less critical. If you're...

Re: I want a rangefinder!

Two options: Most local, non-chain camera shops (if you can still find them) will probably have a used Argus laying around you can pick up for very little.

Also, since you just spent a $1000 on...

To xln: Color Popping

Hi Lynn, I'm not sure if this is how Igor did it, as there are several techniques, but what I do is pretty quick and easy. In Photoshop, I duplicate the original color image and change its mode to...

Re: To seneca77: Cleve Town

Hey Rudy - I left Cleveland in '83 to attend OSU, graduated from there in '86, and moved to Florida ten years later.

I spent a lot of time hanging around the Metro Parks shooting with my old...

Re: To seneca77: :)

Don't be afraid to boost the saturation or adjust the colors a bit with your photos. In the "old days" of film, a lab would not hesitate to make such adjustments to bring out the best in a photo (or...

Re: To seneca77: Excellent, Excellent Feedback!

Yes, it would be quite the expensive lunch! LOL.

Re: Comments or critiques??

Hi Erik,
I was a little reluctant to give critiques at first, and I've been a serious amateur photographer for twenty years. But what I found after doing a few is that the process of critiquing...

To Gargouille: Thank you

Thanks for the kind and constructive words. I agree that had the small boat in the foreground been in focus, it would have been a better image. I was right at the limit of holding the camera still...

To spence: Thank you!

Thanks for the critique - as an admirer of your work, that means a lot to me. Nice workshop as well. I think I was a little overzealous in adjusting the curve, trying to bring out some of the shadow...

Thanks for the comments, Peter. I was kind of surprised too that no one before you made any sort of critique or comment, because as of this writing, it's been viewed 150 times. I'm wondering if...

Re: To seneca77: Workshop on the Balloons

Glad to help Marcel. Thank you for your kind words. On this particular photo, I used the Adjust - Shadows/Highlights feature in Photoshop CS. Unfortunately, it's something Adobe added to CS, so...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on the photo, Rabani. I appreciate it. I would love to shoot this in the winter, especially with a thick blanket of snow on the ground, but in speaking with...

Re: To seneca77: J. Kerry

Thanks for the info and the websites Chris. It kind of mirrors what my overseas friends tell me. I know several people in the UK, and given the chance none of them would have voted for Bush, but they...

Thanks for your kind comments, Paul. I'm glad you appreciate the PS tweaking I did to the image. And yes it's quite a feat to "park" these giant ships. Unfortunately, I wrote my note about parallel...

I've already posted my two workshops for today, but will post my attempt at it tomorrow. Michael (mpb001)posted an excellent workshop, BTW.

Re: To seneca77: 1st posting

Thanks for explaining how you shoot, Laszlo. I went ahead and did a workshop on it, but with a different outcome than I had anticipated before reading your note. You have a good eye - I look forward...

To hftey: Thank You

You're right about cropping the top of the picture a little tighter. I debated about doing it, but chose to go with as much foliage as I could. In hindsight, I probably should have cropped about 3/4"...

Thanks for your critique, Thanh. My wife and I had a great time enjoying the fall colors. Being from Florida, we don't see too much in the way of fall foliage.

Thanks for your comments, Liora. Florida certainly has its own "look," especially the further south you go. I never saw so many pastel colored houses and buildings than when I moved here from Ohio...
