Re: Interesting - f11 Magazine

Whew, glad you're not offended. But that's a very nice thing about you, Greg -- you're hard to offend :D You take things that come up as learning opportunities, for everyone including yourself, and that's a good thing in a teacher.

Re: Interesting - f11 Magazine

In looking more closely at the actual photos, which were of course chosen and arranged by someone which is why they seem so uniform despite their diversity, another reason they look like advertising is that they resemble the aspirational/"motivational" quality of a lot of ads -- see pp 80-...

Re: Interesting - f11 Magazine

I think we may all be saying the same thing here, albeit from different perspectives. As a magazine editor, the thing that bothers me about this magazine initially is the (quite standard -- advertisers request this) placement of the ads in RHP position -- i.e. on the right-hand pages, so that when y...

Re: Interesting - f11 Magazine

I do too -- but I'm not sure they're the same mixed feelings. I work in magazine publishing so it's difficult for me not to notice the tricks of the trade, which tend to distract my attention from the photos themselves and, I feel, make them all look like the same kind of thing within the context of...

Re: What can be done to this one

Martin and Julie, how do you do the b/w conversion? Does which technique you choose depend on some of the qualities of the original colour version?

What can be done to this one? :)

I've tried about a million ways to edit this shot. It never comes out looking very interesting -- plus the sky in the back is blown out -- but I have a feeling that, with the right touch (obviously not mine), it could be great. Or at least more interesting. Ideas/thoughts/techniques/subversions very...

Re: I. Magnin building

Ah, this shows me what's wrong with my version - still not enough contrast in certain areas. The supersaturated yellow is a brilliant touch, as is the up-close-and-personal crop. Also, Martin, I seem to have somehow missed your version on first look. You've really brought out the special quality of ...
