    The Wedding Party

    It shows how sharp your camera and lens are, that is for sure! Interesting angle on them, too, like they're on the edge. I really like the blurred out background. The overall color works for me. The thing that makes it less than great is their expressions, however. They seem unhappy, or bored (maybe it was a boring pt of the wedding?). It is still an interesting shot, but more of a candid capture.
  2. They are all nice, but photographically I would avoid the straight down angle. I don't know why but it hurts a shot (same goes with flowers). The last 3 are the best IMO but number 3 is better and my favorite because it's angle is not so flat. Gb

    Berlin Wall Sections

    Mike, I like the pix of the wall esp the one with graffiti. I've been to Berlin when the city was still divided, including the east side. I have pix, will have to dig them up. I recall how there were many checkpoints, not just charlie. I can't recall which one we passed through, it was on a bus and you were prohibited from taking photographs while passing through. I remember the east being horrible looking, though from what I heard, East Berlin was considered far ahead of many other communist block countries.

    Where is it? It reminds me of watching an old movie, or reading a history book. The person walking in modern clothing is a bit of a disappointment however: would rather that person be wearing older garb. The black and white definitely over the color. There is something about B&W in city shots, editorials, models, etc. Gb

    Purple & Green

    The color combination really works The detail is amazing also. Composition-wise it is a bit lacking, but I'm not sure there is much you could have done about it. If you moved in to compose just a few flowers it may have been compositionally stronger, but then you would have lost the nice effect of the big picture. GB

    Walking thru the desert

    Artistic manipulation has its time and place. I do it sometimes for fun, to create an idea, or to enhance a promising though otherwise flawed picture. See below for a modified shot from the Imperial Sand Dunes in near Yuma, Arizona.

    Walking thru the desert

    Dallas I actually thought that the cloud made the shot I think I've been out there so many times that anything different looks better.
  11. a time warp? :)
  12. It is an excellent capture, but I wonder how it would look with a little color (was it desaturated, or just a very overcast day that eliminated the color?). Either way, I would play with adding color, as an artistic expt. Note that according to a fellow presenting on compositing, this is often the way compositers do it because it is too hard to adjust the colors of the different images to look the same, so they just desat and add color in from scratch.

    Dallas, SF does lie on a fault, and so does LA, etc. San Diego also has a fault that runs through the most exp part of the town (La Jolla). Crazy for sure, but perhaps this adds an air of 'live now' philosophy?

    Thanks guys, I also feel that the ship adds to the shot, rather than hurts it (some may feel the opposite). I didn't realize that there are many such classic vistas on the north end of the bridge, an area they call Salsalito. There are several roads you can take off the main one to mountain tops, each w/ their own unique (though familiar) angle (you see these shots on postcards, etc., so nothing is really unique). The area is extremely windy, and it's hard to believe they don't have windmills, which makes photography a little more challenging. Below is a pic of the homes around the small village of Salsalito, they are all extremely expensive as the SF Bay area is the least affordable in the USA.

    From a recent visit. Windy, blustery, and scenic. Photogenic area, also. GB
