Liquid lunch, yesterday, at the Old Friends pub in Ulverston: a pint of Dizzy Blonde and a log fire. Bliss...

Have a look to the right of the glass and into the fire. Looks like a silhouette to me ? Anyone else ? Nice DOF, nice looking pint.

Mine.... wandering the back forty on a rainy winter day and came across this birch leaf.

Thanks for the comment, yeah I see what you mean about similarities with the great wall, and it was either a selfie or she was shooting the light

This is an excellent and very interesting shot TheReef. The minimalist in me would love to see a version with a tight crop on the ferris wheel.
Thanks, I do have a tighter version with different composition and more emphasis on the ferris wheel that I'll post soon.
I was actually in Toronto briefly, catching a flight out of Billy Bishop airport on the island, so you would've been near by! Nice city.

One of my older photos from a 'while back' when these fancy new B737s with this funny mood-lighting inside were all the rage and a big deal. This was shot at about 6:00am in the morning, in the freezing cold.

1/4sec, F/9.0, ISO3200.

IMO, I would try a touch less shadow to bring out this guy's left eye a bit...but very nice shot Puckman1.

Mine for today...




OK, I know this shot has absolutely no redeeming artistic or creative value but I was going through some of my photos of Sydney, Australia from two years ago and I starting wondering...what's more disturbing: The thought that someone might have been checking me out while I'm on the loo or that I actually pulled out my camera and snapped off a shot in a public washroom.

On Saturday I took photos of a local high school play dress rehearsal for them to use in the display cases and a photo DVD to sell as a fund raiser. Most of the photos were taken during the show itself, but I also took a few posed shots afterwards that I think are worth sharing.

I didn't notice that! I just saw the flames in the glass...

It doesn't quite work for me. I go from one eye to the other, across that broad expense of forehead; after a few seconds the pic no longer 'reads' like a horse at all. Maybe it's just me...

Great photo. The green and red are subtle but adds pop.

I love all of those Blackwell shots, doylem. The soft/warm lighting manages to convey exactly the right mood for that kind of location, in my mind.

Trying out the ND8 filter in midday sunshine at the beach. I added a masked gradient overlay to the sky to exaggerate the blue there. The white edges to the pylons is a result of my crappy painting to reveal them after applying the gradient mask.

I'm really looking forward to getting back to this spot at sunset for some really long shutter speeds!

I really like the hint of extra color you get from the cooler temperature of the outdoor light hitting the edges of the windows. Those blue hues really set off the warm ones. It would be nice to see even more of it instead of the small slice in the corner by itself, but perhaps that's not possible.

This kind of scene can work beautifully with long exposures, so I too look forward to you getting back there at sunset. Just a tip about masking something like this. If you're using Photoshop, making a copy of the blue channel would give you a near-perfect mask quite easily here. After you make the copy, adjust it with the "Threshold" option or maybe "Curves" to get a perfectly clean separation between black and white. Then maybe add a tiny bit of blur to soften the edges...voilą...excellent "found mask."

Phrasikleia, thank you for the tip. Very generous of you! Another of your sage advices I'll copy and keep for future reference.

I've just got my hands on a few photoshop tutorials, the first of which deals exclusively with tonal adjustments in pp.
