    Very nice. Strictly legally you may not allowed to sell it :-).

    Are you sure about that? Even if it is altered?
    I like yours as well.

    For sure is that you are not allowed to use images shot at the aquarium for commercial purposes. In your case it is hard to say where they are shot though. Got to their website they have their rules. We are members of the aquarium and plan to visit soon again.

    Here is a wild image:

    Re: Blends

    I would think that by commercial, they mean for use in some kind of advertising for someone else's company or product, not fine art. But, I could be wrong. I've also have shots similar to this from the Omaha zoo.
    Anyway, I like you Jelly Phantasies.

    Just let it open where you got the fish shots. Could be from your diving friend :-) and does not have much to do with your result.

    I agree. Not sure it is that great of a shot anyway. Thanks for the heads up.

    The contrast of the bright and dark fish works very well. I like it a lot.

    Shot while driving thru Yellowstone. They had some really big fires a few years back, so this is a common site now.

    Hey Mike - please let me know when you start teaching this stuff - we need a Master Class. Seems like you spread your time between US and Europe.

    As far a blends go, you are the Man

    Re: Blends

    Thanks Keith and Uwe. I am wanting to learn how I could set up private lessons on line or group lessons if anyone is interested. Or private workshops here at my place. I've attended a couple of workshops to see how others do it. I haven't had much experience at teaching, but I think I would get the hang of it. I'll keep you informed.

    The two plane shots by Uwe and Mike's "Leaving the cafe" have some resemblance in time. They do make me think of the roaring twentys.

    Very nice work gentlemen!

    Yes Uwe, you have it there. When I was recently in Rome I was taking as many pictures of wall textures as statures. For good blends it is essential to have a library of appropriate textures.

    This is called "Dedham Vale"

    John Constable painted this landscape in the early 1800's
    This is technically a blend, but done the easy way

    This one is very nice, Mike. I like the composition and the way the curly white lines in the framing mimic the reflections in the water.

    Yes it is, I'm liking the lens. It is very similar to the 40mm f1.4 voightlander that I have been using. It has the same weird bokeh.

    “Sailing Past The Sun”
    I know what you are thinking. What a cliche! Yes it is, but we were in Greece and it was a beautiful night and I had a camera. What was I to do?I even have shots of the boat going all the way across the frame and of course one right in the path of the sun reflection.

    Thanks Uwe. I must say that the more I look at this the more I like it. I find myself starring at the sun and getting lost in my thoughts. Guess I'd like to go back there.

    Uwe, I think the image works. There is lots of stuff going on.

    Put the tones, colors and composition together as a whole and it seems to please the eye immediately

    I would like to see Mike's variations (boat under the sun)

    for me, the dark space works because it is the main point of focus on the rocks edge. On my monitor, there is some tone in the darkness, but I want the eye to go to the edge of the rocks and then to the sun whose reflection leads the eye back to the sharp rocks.
