Re: Fire and ice

Julie, are you ok there? https://wildfiretoday.com/2019/01/04/large-wildfire-in-tasmania-sends-smoke-into-hobart/ When I lived in southern California during a major wildfire, we had to evacuate not because the fire was particularly close to us, but because of the health danger from smoke. (Yes, this...

Re: Fire and ice

Yikes. I thought it was cold where I grew up (upstate New York), but the coldest it ever got was -20F and that was very rare; -10 was common for deep winter -- cold, but not life-threatening. To you, Greg, that must seem like spring. The abrupt jump to 45F is uncharacteristic, right? For my friends ...

In this photo of the roses, it's amazing how you've made what looks like a stack of plastic bags (?? -- in the bowl on the right) look beautiful :D The light here seems more like painting than photography.

Re: for 19th

I like the one where the guy at the top is looking straight ahead and the two people in front of him are both looking behind him. I think the symmetry accentuates the overall effect, while it's diluted in the shot where the couple are looking in different directions.

Re: for 19th

Definitely worth persisting with! The optical illusion is something I haven't seen before even in other 'pattern' photos -- it looks like the escalators are moving, and actually makes me feel a bit dizzy if I look at it long enough. The vertigo effect is more pronounced in b/w so I'd vote for that. ...

Re: julie 5th JAN

Something else that strikes me is that the degree of imperfection you've allowed in each photo is very important. If you edited out all the small deviations from the pattern, or centered all the off-centre elements, these would be very different photos. Like with the first one (wall of blue windows)...

Re: 5 Jan 2019 Discussion

I'm sorry I missed the discussion of these. Martin, can you say anything specifically about what you did to the lighting in the two sunset shots? In the second one you've lightened the shadows a lot more.

Re: 5 Jan 2019 Discussion

One comment I would make about the first photo of the two girls is that the first one's t-shirt draws a lot of attention away from the kids themselves. I guess it's because the pattern on the shirt is so loud and busy. But of course you can't always ask people, especially kids, to go and change thei...
