    If you have access to this month's Outdoor Photographer there is a wonderful article by a gal named Cheyenne Rouse about using HDR, not for compression, but for artistic effects. She shot an old pickup truck which resulted in a stunning HDR image. I thought of you and your love for this train and wondered what HDR effects might do for an artistic rendering.

    Look at the magazine if you want and can

    Best

    These are lovely. I love boats. Fishing boats in particular. You have caught the color and the repair/paint needed. Very Good.
    Rayyan: It was dull and desolate. It was probably a Sunday. Behind me was the, yet to be saved and renovated, Pike Place Market.

    A unique atmosphere... there's sadness, nostalgia, solitude, but still hope.
    What pops up in my mind when trying to express the mood is "tranquil desolation". Or something like that.
    A rare photo.

    Corlan: It seemed to fit here. Nice description.

    Cheers, Matt.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Had the privilege of shooting the HS senior portraits of a special young lady this week. We've known her since she was a pre-teen, and always considered her cute, but quiet and shy. We couldn't have been more wrong! When we started the shoot she really came out of her shell... she lit up the place like a carbon-arc spotlight. We had a blast. Here are some results.

    Of course, the rice.

    I agree... rice is nice; on any day.

    Great shot. The play of the light on the green really takes my eyes there. It almost has a sense of motion. Great clouds, amazing color.

    thanks LLoyd, man portable lighting in that place was ridiculous.

    SHe was beautiful to say the least, got reallt lucky she was so professional that and my wife helped out which was great than god. But more flashes needed actually portable continuous lights or strobes would be nice , when she walked that dress flowed, I shot some film but have yet to get it back.

    +1. Not a usual fan of this kind of processing but it sure works pretty well here.

    Real nice set, LLoyd. All lovely, the one quoted standing out by a small margin for me.
    Brilliant.

    Great set.
    My two favorites, too.

    The dress for the more suggestive crop than earlier, and IMHO the boxing shot well above the others in a less artificial way (more 'million dollar baby naturalness", perharps).

    Really like the high key here Peter.
    Would vote for a tad more sharper focus on the eyes.

    Great silver processing in the first one.

    This one is my favorite. Nicely done. I do so little extra processing of my own images (I gotta work on that)....I admire images like these when it works so well.

    If you have access to this month's Outdoor Photographer there is a wonderful article by a gal named Cheyenne Rouse about using HDR, not for compression, but for artistic effects. She shot an old pickup truck which resulted in a stunning HDR image. I thought of you and your love for this train and wondered what HDR effects might do for an artistic rendering.

    Look at the magazine if you want and can

    Thanks for the suggestion and tip Woody......I just stopped by a couple of stores to look for the magazine, but haven't found one yet. Is that the May or June issue?

    I REALLY like this image Matt and what you've done with it......I have no clue what kind of post processing is involved to achieve this look, but it really works here.

    All excellent photos Lloyd! I have never been good at taking pictures of people (hence all my shots of trains etc), so I am always in awe of those photographers who can establish a rapport and get really good portraits (as these are). This one may be my favorite....though it's hard to choose.

    My only disappointment with these is with her eye lash mascara (which is least obvious in this image). I prefer a very subtle, natural look re makeup (such as with Peter's portraits of "Alice"), but that's just a personal preference.

    In any case, well done Lloyd and she is indeed, a very beautiful young woman.

    I really like your photos from the shipyard Matt! Must have been really interesting to be there taking photos of the welder at work.

    Lloyd: Nicely done. These are all great. My favorites are these two. Great color and composition. I'm sure these made her happy!

    Great shot. The play of the light on the green really takes my eyes there. It almost has a sense of motion. Great clouds, amazing color.
