To Homerhomer: Metering

The question of metering here was maddening! How do you capture those people in the BG without overexposing the light part in the middle? The answer here was, You don't! But I wish someone could tell...

Aiiii!

That thing on flickr is so tragi-comic... oh my lord.

I think the thing about the deleteme group is that they thrive on being able to have veto power. It's exciting to be able to be the ultimate...

Re: Trash Photos and Junk Shots and More Rubbish

Hi Francis,
I am not sure how you were reading my comment but it wasn't said in a bitter spirit at all, and it certainly wasn't directed at you. I'm re-reading it and trying to imagine what you...

Re: To adrost: boy or girl....

You know, I think it's because the kind of photos we take are photojournalistic and if you look at the list of Magnum members, for example, there are about 5 women and fifty men! I really do not know...

Re: Trash Photos and Junk Shots and More Rubbish

The problem with doing a photo essay on TE is that apart from your "followers," no one will know that he image they are seeing is part of a series: it will appear as (for example) "a boring photo of...

Re: Do you know how flawed your pictures are?

I think it's a rare talent to see one's own flaws well. That would seem to be the purpose of a site like this... I find I'm beginning to get frustrated with my own shortsightedness though, and the...

Re: To adrost: boy or girl....

Everybody had the same question for me, assumed I was a guy! But the real irony is that I, too, assumed you were a guy until recently :(

To kajspice: sinking

I know -- I have that problem with the shot too, guy sinking out of frame. I have another shot that's a better compo, but motion-blurry (sigh).

To dopiro: ou?

Where do you live? I used to live in Montreal, during university. Two years, I lived on the Plateau, but one year I lived in St-Henri. I liked it even less than I like my current neighbourhood. I...

To AnimeshRay: 'Lo

Thanks for your critique, even if it wasn't a positive one :)

I'm actually very fond of this shot. I think my notes set it up to have the context you wrote of, but maybe if I had just let the...

To Galeota: something to prove

Now, of course, I have to prove to you and the rest of the Canon geeks, oops, I mean gang, that anything you can do, I can do better!

(Actually, the decision was -- I almost hate to admit this --...

To Luko: kava substitute

Yep, I thought of you (and Theroux too) while I was there.

Those missionaries completely got rid of the kava, so there was nothing to do but drink a mildly intoxicating "bush beer" with a bunch of...

Re: A question of geography for Adam

Ah. Of course to be totally pedantic, they are an independent nation. I'm just putting in my two cents on behalf of all the Islanders, who would want me to make that clear -- but of course I'll...

A question of geography for Adam

Hi Adam,

While trying to upload a photo, I realized that the country I shot it in (Cook Islands) was not on your list of countries. Yet I see some people have managed to post shots of the Cook...

Re: Sergey Maximishin (found on Lightstalkers.org)

The picture in the fountain in Chechnya (on Lightstalkers) is fabulous. I couldn't access his homepage though for some reason.

I have to do more browsing on Lightstalkers. You're a member, right?...

your photos

You should post any kind of photo on TE. I love your photos on Odyssey and I'm sure that I would not be alone. You shouldn't censor yourself. Maybe you will open some people's minds with your more...

You know something strange? I was thinking of you when I posted this picture. Somehow it reminded me of your stuff, indirectly.

To jinju: Focal length

I have to be honest with you... I have no idea. The camera itself is relatively crappy compared to the nice dSLRs everyone here uses, and the focal length seems to be very relative... I mean, 2.8 on...

Re: To tongapup: Thanks!

It's not so much the colour of his face (although it does look a little orange) as the fact that there seem to be patches or blotches of colour on his cheeks. Probably from saturation. Anyway,...
