Great Gable from Scafell Pike by Andysnapper

Great Gable from Scafell Pike

Lovely. I managed to get a day like this at the beginning of May. They are rare indeed.

Super Colleen. I'm in the land of the bald eagle at the moment. On Vancouver Island where they are everywhere, but I only managed one half decent shot. I'll post it when I get the chance. Your fish eagle is magnificent - I've only ever seen two one in captivity in Nigeria and the other in Sabi Sands SA. I didn't get anything as good as this.

Cheers,

Alan

Excellent shots. I definitely think you were right to clone out that guy in V2.

Glencoe Lochan, Glencoe, Scotland by wulsy

Glencoe Lochan, Glencoe, Scotland

A lovely landscape, and it's funny how the two nations have swapped gardens. We were in the Butchart Gardens near Victoria BC a few days ago and it was built by Scots.

Certainly I can see how the lochan and the gardens are reminiscent of Canada, this is like a less grand version of Vancouver Island.

Really nice use of HDR, but you have suffered from Photomatix's ability to accentuate dust spots - beside the tall mast on the right. One click in PS and Bob's your uncle.

V2 I think as the HDR processing in V1 is a bit overpowering for my taste.

We've been in BC for the last 10 days and it's really beautiful. On Friday we're heading for the mountains on the Rocky Mountaineer after 5 days in Tofino. I'm looking forward to views like this.

Have a great time up north. I was going to say that this was well timed, until you owned up to Maggie being in itGrin

Drive on a Ridge 4

An excellent shutoff the terraces on the near bank, but that path on the far side of the river is amazing.

Sun Worship by Bogwoppett

Sun Worship

To me the old, "Is photography art?" question is long dead. In the UK we seem to be among the last to even ask the question. Photography is undoubtedly art. It always has been. Julia Margaret Cameron and Roger Fenton used standard artist poses and she certainly amended the light to suit. To me photographic art requires more attention to detail than painting. We can of course to-day remove trees from scenes, something that was hard to do with film, but Constable simply ignored trees he didn't want in his paintings. Our compositions can't easily be painted over and whether with landscape or models bad composition can't easily be corrected.

You also ask about post processing and is the image still a photograph. Well, of course it is, except when it's trying not to be. It maybe ceases to be if one takes processing to a level where the treatment purports to be something else. Your second image is still a photograph.


Cheers,

Alan
