To Wandering_Dan: sky

I had a 2 stop ND grad here, but it wasn't enough, so I used a gradient tool in PS. I had originally made the sky darker than this, but it created a very unbalanced feel to the lighting....what you...

Memories

Greg,

This is looking SSE from alongside Rte. 30? I used to drive by here many times in winter when I lived in Jamaica ...Vermont, not the island : ) In my memory there used to be many more...

To caspademosca: Thank you

Thank you. I only wish that I had a wider angle lens so that I could set the camera higher to capture the water from a better angle, yet still keeping the white glow at the top of the frame.

To naznaz567: Thank you

Yes, at first sight, I thought the other photo of the brook was brilliant...however, once I saw this photo, I knew the other was second rate.

Thank you for the nice critique.

To Nelu_Goia: Thank you

yes, that is what I was really trying to capture. Somehow none of my panoramic mountainside fall foliage photos were the least bit visually interesting. So I decided to go close up with a few shots...

Re: To frostymon: Jeff

yes, somehow when the leaves turn, it just creates an overwhelming display of color...color everywhere looks pretty in person, but there's just not much around to balance out the colors in a photo.

To Greg1949: thanks Greg

Actually my aim was to get the entire frame in focus, but due to something happening during the shot it is all not in super sharp focus. My theory is that my thumb may have bumped the camera while...

To foibles3: thank you

Yeah, I am addicted to very small apertures...hence my stills (landscapes and abandoned photos) are usually long exposures....which is fine with me...I like the sharpness and the natural...

To dumbo: Thank you

Thank you for the critique. Yes, I agree, I like the vertical format as well. It allows for a more depth than a horizontal format, since you can get a nice foreground. I think foreground is great...

To mpb001: Thank you

Thanks Mike,

I agree with the foreground bit. Unfortunately, this is the most interesting bit of foreground around for probably a couple hundred yards...the area is mostly sandy beach with sea...

To Greg1949: Thank you

Thank you. This shot was actually pretty bad in RAW form. It took some nifty cropping to make it "nice". I went with the oversaturation to 1. give it kind of a postcard feel, and 2. to liven up...

To Wandering_Dan: I knew it reminded me of something

yes, Dali. The subconcious connection that i made between Dali and this photo never quite surfaced up to my concious level, so I've been wondering what about it made me pick it, above the rest, to...

To Rodrigues: Reply to a critique from last year : )

I just realized that I had meant to tell you that since the landscape in this shot was so flat and featureless that i figured I would make a kind of Mark Rothko inspired photograph and just divide...

To tomszat: thanks

Hi Tom,
Thanks for the comment.
In regards to the saturation, I only increased it slightly. In real life, the metal was actually the brilliant red color you see in the photograph. This scene...

To speedymanu: Thank you

Thank you for the kind words. It's kind of strange to me how drawn I am to this place...and in particular, this cottage. I've got a fascination with things that were at one time put to good use, but...

Re: To frostymon: Jeff

I would highly recommend an ND grad filter. I have both a polarizer and an ND grad and I find the ND creates results that are closer to what I had envisioned when setting up the shot. I haven't...

To jmcl: Sharpening Stones

John,
Thanks for the critique. Yes, I agree with you on the sharpness. I JUST learned how to sharpen using unsharp mask, so for the next month (or longer...haha) will certainly be over sharpening...

Yep, curves. I was looking at that while I was working this pic in Photoshop and thought, "Hmm, I wonder what THAT does....I should probably read about it and try working with it next weekend." ...

To mariandrea: Thank you

The sky was really overcast all day long while I was there. Only a few of the shots from that day were worth saving.

Thanks,

Yes, I agree it's oversharpened. I just learned how to unsharpen mask today and got a little carried away. haha. Everytime I learn a new photoshop tool, I always make it "go to eleven" the first...

Hi Greg, not sure if you saw, but I posted a workshop for your Winter Wonderland. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Have a great weekend,

Funny you mention exposure and colors. I took this shot on full auto because it was before I started experimenting with full manual. So I guess the auto in my camera works well : )
