    Rayyan, the way your image in front of the cathedral renders is really impressive.

    Love the pink windows, too!

    .
    Lloyd, Corlan: Thank you my friends. Very kind of you both.

    Thank you for your kind comments.

    Rayyan, another nice tribute to the "campagne alsaciene" landscapes.

    The second shot on the cathedral square, though full of colors, is -can't really explain why or how- reminiscent of one of Steve's black&whites!

    Corlan, the landscape in Alsace is truly magnificent. Maybe Steve was there in spirit!!

    Rayyan: The harpist at the cathedral, the menu at the cafe (which I loved), and now these. Your range and mastery of the craft never cease to amaze. Glad you're here, my friend. (And please add my voice to the wishes for a speedy and full recovery for both you and Ayesha!)

    I like the grainy quality of all of these. Nice moment in this one, with her hair falling away from her face. Also, I'm glad you didn't get in too tight on her face in this one. Allows us to appreciate a more global view.

    Jason: Much appreciated my friend.

    Jason the process I use is very very simple. I use CS3.

    step 1: create 3 layers of your photo ( bg, bg copy 1, bg copy 2)

    step 2: bg and bg copy 1; change the blend mode to multiply

    step 3: bg copy 1 and bg copy 2; change the blend mode to soft light

    step 4: layer mask and/or gradient tool and/or brush plus/or opacity control to vary effect of bg and bg copy 1

    step 5: same as step 4 for bg copy 1 and bg copy 2

    you should mix and match, play with curves on any combo of 2 layers.

    Very simple to do; much harder to write about.

    Maybe you can do it in PS Elements too, but I don't have it.

    Step 6: selective sharpening 98% of the time using NIK Sharpner.

    That's it.

    Regards.

    One Oak, at the far west end of 17th Street in Manhattan. I only got past the velvet rope because I was with my daughter (this isn't her). In shooting this I did try to include the right amount of torso.

    You bet.

    Splendid series Woody. No doubt the G one will do wonders in your hands, too.

    "We don't own a cell phone, so we can't take photos anymore", Louise said. "Often we see people taking photographs of us but they don' t talk with us, they don't even say hello. And then we never see them again".

    So i made a couple of series, a brought them some glossy 7" prints. They were happy, we talked a lot. About simple things.
    So i came back, and so on. Over time, i guess i became the official -though occasional, and pro bono- photographer there.

    Meet some of my friends Louise, Yasmina, Hyacine, André.















    LOVE THESE... THANKS FOR THE LOOK.

    Woody: +1 to what Lloyd said. I do like that you got in close on this one. The focus on the right side of the face, the hand and the ring really works here.

    Matt, she slipped on a rock climbing course on the Eiger; shall slow her down for a little while
    Thanks for your well wishes. I seemed to have stretched a few things or the other.

    Thank you both.

    Re: The New and Improved Fun with Nikon Images!

    Back on the Swiss trail...

    Ayesha called me to ask where I was after 3 hours? She had reached Winteregg in 1/2 an hour. Anyway I was supposed to continue down for another hour and a half..

    Sure enough, I saw the town down below..


    Seemed so small. I passed through some open fields, and some bright sunshine, but constantly the descent was steep and dark..and mostly covered in mist/fog.


    My kness were refusing to carry me, but sheer will power pushed me forward.

    I reached the town at last. Almost giving up, I wanted to check-in to a hotel, but thought the better of it. Called Ayesha, told her I shall be on the cable-car and the final train to Murren.


    The station was the most welcome sight.

    Took the small cable-car. Transferred to an even smaller train and was home
    as the sun was setting for this day.

    I had taken a long abandoned trail. I had descended from 1650 mts to 800 mts along a treacherous path. I had been on the path for 5 hours. It seemed a lot longer to me.

    Ayesha was at Murren. She helped me walk back to the hotel. We could not but notice the grandeur of the Eiger and the Monch as the sun set over the Bernese Alps.


    Moral for me: Next time take the train. I am past such adventures. And yes, I should pay more attention to directions!
