That is some good pic's how about this IMG_0103
John--thank you so much for putting together that index. That's really great, man.
Twintoaster, let's see that shot again. If you need any assistance in linking a photo, search for a thread on how to do that or PM me; I'd be happy to help.
Nice photos everyone.
Franze, you got some 'splainin' to do.
No points for guessing what it is.
I call this picture...Keep still you little sod, a flash has never killed a squirrel has it?"
Catchy title eh?
Clues to the other pic...
It's an old story.
The answer is there in black and white.
Your two pictures are a study in the importance of background. Both are odd choices (as were mine, nearly identical table). The BG in the second photo seems to fight for the viewer's attention, no? In the first photo, the shoes jump out.
Interesting. . . .
I did momentarily think about a liberal amount of superglue near the seeds, but then I just relied on taking lots and lots of shots. Some are much clearer but less interesting, others are just seed and an empty deck, or a paw or a bit of fur.
I prefer this one's proportions...the pic that is, not the squirrel, they are just rats in posh coats.
For such a shot, I'd use a camel back and sip tea through the plastic pipe..."one absolutely must find a way to imbibe, don't y'know!"
On that...saw Sweeny Todd last night. Depp is better than Dick Van Dyke at accents, "Cor blimey Mary Poppins!" but I fear my idea to launch a Brit pie shop may have been crushed by this film...should I sue?
This is what bricciphoto was referring to in post #2.
I still like the first shot better, FWIW.
The more I looked at the Van Halen shot, the more it looks like it's been messed with. Kinda looks like one of those half-tone postives I made on Litho film back in the days of yore when I took a photo manipulation class at SJSU , but, it isn't. It hasn't been altered, shopped, processed, filtered, or had any freshness additives, preservatives, artificial colors or crunch enhancers. That's a hand held shot with a point and shoot 200$ camera. I'll let you stew on that. Same with the ode to Lamble shots.
I'll tell you this...if that little @#$%^#$ing squirrel had moved one more time, he or she'd have ended up in the mincer too.
I'm guessing a hazelnut stuffing?
