    Comments, Suggestions and HELP?

    I find that posting to these NG's really has been the best help ever. People are very candid and generally don't hold back. The product of anonimitu I suppose. Whatever works I say! So .............. again I post my latest creation with the hopes that those who in the past have helped me will continue to do so and anyone else with a moment to spare will do the same. I don't offend with critisism as long as it is constructive. I truly believe that we are all learning all the time. LIfe is, afterall, a learning adventure, don't you think? Thanks in advance to all who take the time to read this and to take a look at my site.

    hi Trina

    I like to think about where a photographers ideas/thoughts are, when i'm
    viewing an image/collection and how individually those ideas are

    for me, the images on your site, have a such a broad connection to each
    other, that the ideas you are expressing seem faint, but i do see the
    general focus on the beauty of the natural environment and the
    enthusiasm for recording a moment in that space.

    "The Nature Gallery" takes me to thoughts of commercial stock
    photography, because of the intense colour saturation and the
    positive light.( I think stock photography exists objectively as a
    blank canvas to be used for a cost-effective illustration of a
    commercial idea.)

    The best picture for me in this section is the last "a025_2_altered.jpg"
    It's close to being abstract by how it breaks down points of
    recognition/recall and the similar colours between the brightest leaves
    and the trunk. It nearly succeeds in being two things.. a tree and
    a flat pattern.

    It reminds me of this Klimt painting...

    "The Scenic" image gives a good sense of space, particularly by the
    contrast between the small trees on the hill and the size of the clouds.
    To emphasize this and to give greater weight to the clouds, i might have
    given the sky a larger ratio of the picture space - 2/3 sky 1/3 land.

    i hope some of this was useful..

    your best and worst thoughts are also welcome on my pics.
