the color here is powerful. is this HDR?

22 Jan 2010 2:34pm

@Ardan: No. This one took very little processing actually.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Superb clarity. There is such a 3 dimensional effect to the brush in the background.
Bill should be honored to have such a great image showing his photographic skills in the wild.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Wonderful catch....I'm so jealous that you all get to go out shooting together!!!

23 Jan 2010 8:03pm

@Susan: There are three of us who have been meeting for coffee once a week for a couple of hours talking photography. We share photographs for critiquing and also share various resources then and through the week. The 15th was the first photo-shot that we have done together, but there definitely will be more. Phil (not in Am3) have been roommates on a couple of Photo Arts Guild shoots (the Oregon Coast, and Sumpter). It was Bill who pulled us together. We also do couple things (movies, dinners, etc.). It's a big deal for me, and I think for all of us.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

That getting together sounds great to me!! Through am3, I met Fliss, who lives a few hours north of me......they came down here for a weekend a few months ago, and we went out for a few hours and shot's just unfortunate that she lives so far........we keep trying to make plans to get together again, but life keeps getting in the way.......Enjoy your time with those folks!!! It's what keeps us young!!!

Barbara from Florida, United States

Definitely one of the first things I noticed, how Bill was holding his camera. You made a good point mentioning it.

@StarCosmosBleu: The three of us meeting regularly to talk photography, and now to go out shooting together, has been a wonderful gift.
