Had a storm coming in this afternoon
Think I may have posted this one before, but since this has become my first print not sold to family nor friends, going to repost it again...
Had this done in a metallic print at 11x14 for an art show last night and was one of 3 prints sold (other two to friends who stopped by). The metallic finish really made the image pop even more than it does on the screen, and considering doing a 16x20 for the house somewhere next time there is a sale on at my printer.

was running back to hotel in reno in just shorts in the rain, he was out playing "rain drops keep falling on my head.
made a rough day a little better.
Here's a few that I think turned out pretty fine. (and sorry I'm a "post & run" type. I gotta work on that)
Been working on a few photos from September's trip to Yellowstone/Tetons:

Happy Holidays folks!
peaceful days for all this holiday season…..
Taken after the ice storm had filled our back yard with tree limbs and debris but before the power went out for 36 hours (temperature went down to -14C last night). Still, there's beauty to be found!
Best of the season everyone.

Thanks Clemsongirl, but I have to admit we spent the last week somewhere a little warmer!
the hdr stuff is such a turnoff. it's like a perfectly decent composition and any emotion inherent in the photo is ruined with the contrast button in photoshop.
i have a different take on it, where criticism is a good thing and can (and should) lead to growth.
often the photographer/hobbiest doesn't see the natural beauty or simple meaning in his own work and feels he needs the computer to add something that is wholly unreal. like he feels compelled to make his natural sky a van gogh 'starry night.' it ends up defeating any purpose that was there already.
i used to make the same mistakes, and sometimes i still do. you have to trust yourself with the camera in your hand, then afterwards, let it go to be what it is. 'what it isn't' just looks fake.
That’s your process, that’s fine and I respect that. I guess I just don’t feel a forum of bicyclists who also happen to share some of their photos is the place to help someone find meaning in their photography. I post to a photography site where there are people who can be helpful in guiding me in whatever vision I have. If someone wants that kind of input I would say that's the kind of site to use for that purpose. More importantly I have friends to share conversations with about our photography. I also just like the journey of photography and what I personally learn and get out of it. I have no need for making money or wanting praise for it.
‘What is’ is an interpretation we each make on how we want an image to look. Whether realistic or wildly digitally changed it’s still a personal vision within a hobby, journey or profession. The two photos of train tracks in my last photo post were influenced by some photos I saw of the train tracks going into the Birkenau Concentration camp on the photo site I post to. That’s what I was feeling when I took them. Whether someone thinks they have no meaning doesn't bother me because to me they do. I would hope everyone who posts to this thread feels their sharing is simply that….sharing.
Allen’s alt-processing, someone’s hdr or even a photo with no photographic attributes is a personal choice to share here. I welcome all of that and hope more people share!
