Rebooted

One of the benefits of all this blogging
is the feedback received on my work. Last week
I responded to a generous offer of a Picture Critique by Otto of
Munchows Creative Photo Blog.  In response I submitted my latest Phantom.
I knew that the background was too busy, but didn’t know quite how to improve it.
Within a few days, I had the answer. Otto simply suggested that I darken it so it almost appears
like night and increase the contrast in the foreground. Here’s the result…
Let me know what you think.
Thank you Otto!

Flaming


With Hurricane Sandy heading toward us,
I’m thinking about light, not the outdoor light
illuminating my images. I’m thinking about the energy
I cook and read by. Is the power likely to go out? Should I run out
and buy some candles. Too bad I can’t just convert all the leaves
flaming outdoors into the energy I might need indoors.
That would be the ultimate in sustainability.
That would be ideal…
