    Thanks all

    There's something about the strict, conservative lines of old German cars that never seems to look out of fashion.

    True. And that generation were always my favorite BMWs. Great panning work, Jorgen.

    Graham: Have fun. I hope you'll post as few from your upcoming trip.
    Corlan: Batman's pretty well decorated. Although, I think he wasn't quite going fast enough?
    Rayyan: Nice color and light. Pleasant looking place.
    Matt: Nicely found and photographed.
    CNovick: Nice set of Auger Falls photos. My fav is the last. You can really see the power of the water.
    CNovick: Really like the quite feeling and lines in the phot of the bridge. Great contrast to the turbulent water.
    Rayyan: Very Noir, even though it's in color. Great tone. +1 to what Steve said.
    CNovick: "Death Falls" and the mosquito pond are both excellent. Vertical and horizontal both work.
    David: Marlon Brando, or James Dean? You captured an "attitude". nicely done. A photo worth "playing" with in pp.
    Joe: Great photo. Nice contrast between the light and shade and there color.
    Joe: Very cool point of view with the bridge photo. Makes you look harder at each element in the photo.
    Tim: I love the pastel coloring and the focus. I think you's got it. Everything still has discernible color and the pastels are distinctive.
    Tim: Great look chimney. Nicely balanced composition. We're using salvaged "barnwood" and rusted corrugated metal roofing for an apartment clubhouse in Missoula, MT. Not quite the same as a real barn!
    Rayyan: Beautiful color and concentrated looks.
    David: I like the contrasty B & W; but, the last treatment is great. It has an old 50's movie look.
    Jorgen: "Virtual Reality" is an excellent composition. Perfect pp and face.
    Jorgen: I agree. The shot of the bimmer's very cool.
    Lloyd: Thank you, sir!

    Cheers, Matt.

    Balloonist's Prayer

    May the winds welcome you with softness.
    May the sun bless you with its warm hands.
    May you fly so high and so well that God
    joins you in laughter and sets you gently
    back into the loving arms of Mother Earth.

    Lloyd: Awesome! The four photographs, each with a different viewpoint, give a great sense of the event. The green and blue are perfect backgrounds for the multicolored balloons. Well done.

    Lloyd: Really nice series conveying an authentic impression of the event! Particularly like the composition of # 4, with the single balloon in the FG, the elevated POV on the other, "smaller" balloons and the greens and blues of the BG.

    Matt, you should print a blurb of these bears. write a small story for kids to go along.

    I think there could be benefit for all from this excellent collection.

    And thanks, partner.

    Wow and Wow Lloyd. Beautiful photogrphic documentation of what must have been a superlative event.

    The colors scream. The perspective is ' not on the ground '.

    Excellent rendition my friend.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Lloyd, this set is just outstanding. And i'll second Rob's remarks on the technical side. Impressive. Re the specific shots, while agreeing with Hermann on the last one, my personal favorite, for the full composition enhanced with geometric elements and proportions, sense of levity, rich colors, but before all for the great relative place of Smokey and our friend from base 51. Not only a splendid photo, but lot of fun, too.

    (great text, too)



    Jorgen: don't really know what to say other than before: amazing panning shots. Big Cola is my favorite -and not only because of the technical mastery involved.



    Matt: no Roswell fellow, and different kind of Smokey's here. First one's real good, but... this second one is absolutely awesome. Movement, expression, composition, colors, detail; everything's spot on. Nat Geo material or even better, seriously. I want a print. In fact, the whole family wants a print.

    (how could you have overlooked this one till now btw?)

    Hi Matt, great work on these. I especially like this one's facial expression and tilted head. It provides a sense of his, ur, personality. Really nice.


    [QUOTE=Lloyd;330504][CENTER][B]Balloonist's Prayer

    Lloyd, love the color on these, but this last one satisfies my eye the best - the strong center of interest with a that levitational sense of depth is super. Great work.

    Got A New Toy! I splurged and purchased one of those $275 650-2600mm lenses. Although this was a "party" weekend (no treks into the mountains), I was able to take some time to learn the lens. This is of the Athens lighthouse taken on the Hudson River in Athens, NY. (approx. 1/4 to 1/2 mile distance).

    This is such a great photo especially given the occasion. The combination of the solid, massive monument with the ephemeral, dynamic images of the flags makes this a great composition imo.

This is of the Athens lighthouse taken on the Hudson River in Athens, NY. (approx. 1/4 to 1/2 mile distance).
    Looks like a fun new toy. Looking forward to more results!

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Took a shot of tonight's moon at about 2000mm. Some hints to anyone who is thinking of getting a lens of this type;
    1. A spotter scope would be nice to have mounted on the telephoto.
    2. You definitely need a good tripod, I thought I did -- naahh. My next attempt at the moon will be with 2 tripods - my "good" one for the lens, and another for the camera.
    3. A slight wind will move the camera!!!
    4. Your focusing must be just about exact.

    Very interesting, Conrad. Looking forward to seeing how the 2 tripods works. I think there are some real possibilities here.

    Tim: Like Lloyd, I like them all. #1. Beautiful greens and grays; almost fur-like texture of the field. #2. Color and subject isolation/focus. #3. just very cool; layered. #4. combination of reflections and just enough of the smiling girls and their binkies. Color and composition's great in all four.

    There's no "darkside" in Maine...is there?

    Cheers, Matt

    Hey thanks Matt, for your kind words. As for a "dark side", I suppose there is one but I think I might be too lazy to look for it. Thanks again!
