Critiquing

Hi Lisa - first, so glad to hear your Mom is making a recovery! Maybe a handful now that she's out, but being out is so vastly preferable... I hope the recovery is a swift one. My grandmother is...

To snunney: B&W

Hi Stephen - as I just wrote to Krzysztof, I did try a few B&W conversions but didn't like them. I gave it another shot, though, and posted it as a WS - let me know what you think, and thanks for...

To krzychu30: B&W

Hi Krzysztof - thanks for the visit on this one. I did try a few B&W conversions early on, but was never really happy with them. I tried it again after your comment, though, and I've posted what I...

To rigoletto: Ground cropping

Hi Deniz - thanks for the kind words on this one!

I definitely considered cropping at bottom, but I liked the reflection of the orange beams there too much to do it... I actually wanted an even...

To willperrett: Shadows

Hi Will - you might be right. I had a bit of PP uncertainty with this one, and produced a few different versions, but this one - the most heavily contrasted - ended up being what I went with because...

To kasianowak: Crop

Thanks, Kasia - a really useful comment, and something I'll try with this shot. I hadn't even thought of that. Thanks!

To macjake: Biebs

Sure enough - I hadn't noticed the similarity to your wayward countryman, but it's definitely there.

Thanks for the kind comment!

To PaulVDV: Fences

Hi Paul - I too was very surprised at the openness of the fort. A couple of my earlier shots from here were obtained by walking into a few of the wide cannon openings in the outer walls - openings...

To tyro: Telephotos

I resisted for quite a while, mostly because on the kit lens I'd used as a zoom in the past, I rarely found myself at the top level, and more often wished I had a wider rather than a narrower lens...

To holmertz: Rear Window

Funny you mention it, that was almost the title I gave this one. Sometimes, however, a title just attaches itself to a shot as I'm taking it, and that's how it was with this one.

Thankfully, this...

To macjake: Ice Fishing

I've never Ice fished either... really something better observed than experienced, I think! But yes, I would have assumed ice fishing was some sort of rite of passage for eastern Canadians...

To dekanski: Simple

Saša, while I appreciate your comments, it would be better to offer specifics when you criticize a shot. What do you mean by too simple, exactly?

Thank you for the thoughts.

Yes, and in fact I meant to mention that in the note for this shot - I'll fix it!

To holmertz: Ice

It's a bit misleading, Gert -the water you see is actually puddled formed by melted snow, as we'd had a covering the day before. Then the temperature spiked for a couple days. The ice under them...

To holmertz: The View

Hello Gert - actually, the women's room had a similar balcony... but I opted not to try to get a photograph from there!

Thanks for the kind comment.

To willperrett: Sepia

Hi Will - thanks for the comment, and no, I didn't Sepia tone. In fact, I actually toned down the yellowish cast here a tiny bit; the fixture itself gave off fairly warm light and tones.

Hi Craig - nope, no golf here! Just some beautiful lawns next to the old city walls. The section all the way in BG is actually in front of El Morro, the large fort at the tip of Old San Juan. And...

I love that Utah rotunda... I have a feeling that when I finally do get to SLC Utah's capitol is going to come close to the top of my favorites list. Every shot I've seen, from you and others, is...

You're absolutely right, Gert - the triumphs of the Civil Rights Movement were in legal racism, not social, sadly. Though legal barriers to racial integration are dead in the United States (at least...
