It's funny, I post on a couple of photography message boards, and a good 95% of the pictures there are just mediocre. Not bad, but you'd expect more on forums dealing specifically with photography. But then I open this thread on a forum for bicycles of all things, and pretty much every photo is freaking brilliant.

Seconded - in other news, what photography boards are you on?

And just so we don't get too much chat and now enough photos in here....

Spent a few days in Montreal. Overcast days, but night was great. Daylight will probably be better B&W.

Here's a photo that's appropriate for this forum.

Clemsongirl, I like the way you've toned some of your black & white shots.

Thanks.
It was shot through a 24mm tilt/shift lens. It is a composite of two images, one with the lens shifted all the way left, the other all the way to the right. It makes the final image the equivalent of around 8mm.

The truck is what sets the tone of the image.

Very cool shot AllenG

So, a few preliminaries so far from my little trip...





... more to come next week when I get home and can actually do some proper post processing work. Forgot just how limiting Picasa is...

It is of my work, the exhibit is not online (community gallery).
Here are some crappy cell phone pics of a few of the pieces.


Top left is a Shoemaker print (an iron based print made from a Campo Del Cilo meteorite), top right is a salt print made from St. Simons Bay salt water, bottom is a Kallitype made with Arno river water.


Silver gel on tissue paper.

Very interesting alt-processing! The Kallitype looks like the Arno when I enlarged it. Are you using elements from the image scene in processing? If so that's a brilliant way to make it more personal and meaningful!!!! Congrats on the exhibit!!!
